WOW! I have so much going on here I don’t even know where to begin. Some AWESOME news-my brother and his girlfriend found an apartment!! They will be moving (only 25 min away) the first week of Jan! You have no idea how great that is. They will have about a month to settle in before the baby is due.
That means my life may just get back to my own weird version of “normal” again. Or at least I HOPE that is what will happen.
I’m sure you can tell the holidays are upon me! I am busy. I have been bustin my butt getting some ROCKIN samples done in time for my newest release of My Timeless Templates © which will begin peeking on the 11th HERE!! This always gets me busy, but add holiday stuff on top of it and Im INSANE! Although I am getting gifts done.
We are releasing 2 a month, and if you order on the 15th, that should give you PLENTY of time to still whip up MORE fun handmade gifts, just in time for the holidays. Since its a download you get it INSTANTLY, and no shipping! WAHOO!! Plus-totally affordable 😀 There is no limit to the amount of gifts you can create with ONE easy peasy template purchase.
OK so speaking of downloads, todays post is going to share JUST digital images.
Now I’m by NO means a digital image expert. In fact I’m quite challenged, and was still able to do it-somehow! LOL! I do like that I can get a variety of sizes, and get images instantly. I think these are a wave of the future, but I will still LOVE my stamps ALWAYS:D However, when $$ is tight and you really like an image, this option is nice.
First up is from a new company calledSquigglefly. Brand new. All digital download images. Pretty cool.
She has a bunch of images in various style there to choose from, and being digital makes them very affordable.
This one I am sharing is called Pigtail Cutie! You can even see this card there 😀
Isn’t she so cute?! I think she looks just like a Campbell’s Soup girl! I had fun adding the floral pattern to her dress, bag, and shoes with the tip of my marker.
The paper is actually a Christmas slab by K & co I believe.
The “cherish” sentiment is from10 desinger centers & Borders set from JustRite Stampers. I just used my marker to color the middle caramel, and the edges ruby red. The border of the center sentiment is from the same set.
When I die cut it with my nestability I sponged the center, and faux stitched the outter circle edge.
Also JRS is having a 25% off thank you sale-view that here.
These girls bring out my whole “other” side of stamping 😀 and I enjoy that. I did lots of sponging on this and love all the vintage touches-like the lace, and buttons. I even used my pinking sheers! Gotta love it.
Next up I have some more digital images from all that scraps called Sweet Pea & Tiger
I call this one snowball fight 😀
Is this not so cute? I think she is just adorable. She seriously looks like Alexa! LOL! Her hair is the exact same way when I put it in mini pony tails, cause its short! LOL! Cute if you are 2, NOT cute when you are 9! Although putting one to the side has been working. I have some photos to edit, and Ill share that another time with her “new” pony to the side style. She is excited its getting longer to do stuff with. Granted not much, but better than just a barrette that she always removes.
Back to the card-
I love the colors on this. The lopsided layering. I get so sick of everything being all aligned and “perfect” sometimes. Its nice to just mix it up! Tilt things, make them interesting. Granted it still my typical style-clean and detailed, but not too much I think, but a little more interesting with some tilt!
I also love the hanging snowflake confetti tag. Its the little details sometimes.
I used myMarvy snowflake punch (the pink one) to pop out a snowflake on my Caribbean layer. I like that 😀
With the cute “snowball” (aka pom pom) it looks like she is ready to haul one right at you. There are clear sparkly stickles on the snow in this photo. Can’t really see it though :C
Now we have Tiger-
his name may be fierce but he is just TOO cute if you ask me
I wanted to keep him simple, since he is relatively small here. I love the snowflakes CB folder, so I used it on some vellum cardstock. I them stringed on some silver snowflake table confetti for some more WOW! Simple again.
I like anything blingy. I love this little cat. I am also on a white singlo gel pen kick. I think its getting a little compulsive. Do you go through stints of using one thing in particular ALL the time, then never again, again? I do that a lot. Not sure why. Its like a new found love, then hate relationship with product.
This little kitty image makes me think of my poor sick cat-who STILL hasn’t passed the 4 ft of balloon string yet. and its been ALMOST a week. I hope it comes out soon. He seems OK right now. Not sure.
Anyway that uber cute sentiment if from the SugarPlums Snowmen set.
Doesn’t he look ready to take on the snow?
OK that is all I got for you today-I must finish decorating the house for Christmas, before its time to take it all down.
