Digital Scrapbook Page

Here is a digital scrapbook page for my great grandson's mini-album:


The Bear and title from Treasure Box Designs offered as a freebie on their Facebook last Thursday.  I opened the file in Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 (the jpeg of the bear and title) cropped to separate the two jpeg pictures.

I first created my own pattern using files from the graphic file and than placed the two separated pieces onto the layout.  Inserted Barry's photo (at one year) and than typed in his name. (He was always nicknamed Bear from time that my granddaughter knew she was pregnant with him to now.)

I am relearning how to do 'actions' in Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 and to be honest it is not the easier thing to do right now.

Thank you for visiting with me today, and have a great week.

Saint Patricks Pop up Card - a little late.

I know, I know this is late in posting about a Saint Patrick's Card I created using my Pop Up Studio Card software and Make the Cut.



This is the front of the Saint Patrick's Card I created using a svg file from Miss Kate Cuttables.  I print and cut the hat using my Cricut Design Space and Cricut cutting machine.  The green 'sun' background is from SilhouetteAmerica Online Store.  I was going to use a springie thing for the hat but decided to use foam tape to pop it up.



This is the inside of the card using the Pop Up Studio Card software and Make the Cut software to cut the inside layered piece.  When cutting this out again, at a future time, I will correct the legs on the kettle - thicken them so they don't tear from the base as it did in this piece.  I glued, and glued and placed clear gemstones on each leg to hide my mistakes.  The shamrock paper is printed out using a file from the SilhouetteAmerica Online store along with the tag with Lucky printed on it.

Thank you for visiting with me today, and have a blessed remainder of the week.

September Scrapbook Train Layout - Page One

Good afternoon all.  I am here to share a scrapbook page from Creative Kuts Scrapbook Train from last September 2016. This is page one of a two page layout:


I cut the mat and layered onto brown cardstock (this is a Fall theme layout), and rather than cut the flowers and adhered them together, I made a digital image of both flowers, and painted them with my watercolor paints - I have several sets and do not know which set I used on these flowers.

I will be adding beads where there should be pieces in P, B and R...it was pointed out to me that they're missing.  Because of moving stuff around, and other projects being worked on, these pieces got lost in the shuffle.  I will update the picture when finished.

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me, and may God Bless you all.

Easter Chick in Basket



Hello all, I am back with another Easter Card that I would call a 'shaplie'.  Using a file from, I believe miss kate cuttables I print and cut the chick using yellow card stock.  Also, with a black gel pen, I drew around the chicks cheeks to highlight it.  (I print and cut, using Cricut Design Space.)  The card base was created, using Make the Cut software; and once I was happy with the results, I saved as a svg file, and loaded it into Cricut Design Space for cutting.

The ribbon bow is from my Silhouette Studio Designer Edition library that I downloaded from the online store.  I print and cut the ribbon bow, and drew the dotted lines in; but have since done it in the software!!

I placed eyelashes around the eyes, and drew dashes around the card front and the basket.

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me today, and may God bless you all.
