TGI Friday! Today is super exciting on here on the blogeroo as I'm totally honoured to be a part of a special Paper Crafts blog hop to celebrate the release of the special issue: Holiday Cards & More Vol.7!
I'm lucky to have a few projects published in this special issue and I'm pinching myself to be hopping with some awesome talent - here's the list should you get lost:
1. Chan Vuong
2. Angeline Yong Jeet Leen
3. Heather Campbell
4. Kalyn Kepner
5. Lorena Cantó Lavería
6. Cristina Kowalczyk
7. Amy Wanford (that's me!)
8. Vanessa Menhorn
9. Latisha Yoast
10. Jocelyn Olson
11. Meredith MacRitchie
12. Clare Prezzia
So you should have hopped across here from the simply amazing Cristina Kowalczyk. If you haven't, then be sure to start here for the chance to win some amazing goodies!
For this hop, we were challenged to use the free digital sentiments available as part of the special issue here. Did you know that Paper Crafts always has a fab collection of free, digital art perfect for your paper crafting? (Click on an issue and scroll down to check them out) Well the freebies with this special issue are holiday themed of course; so I got a head start on my Christmas cards (now that's a first for Aimes the procrastinator!)
This card was easy peasy to create, required no Christmas themed products, (apart from the free image) and features a design that would be great for mass production. It simply involves printing the digital sentiment, stamping two leaves from Papertrey Ink's Modern Basics, adding a touch of bling and mounting on to a card base. Super simple, super quick, super flat for postage! *wink*
Tip: if you daren't put card through your printer when it comes to using digital elements, simply print on paper and adhere that paper to a sheet of cardstock for extra stability.
So my first, official card of the season is finished with a design I'll probably reproduce a few times over when I leave my cards to the last possible postal deadline *wink*
Paper Crafts have been super kinda and have given you the chance to win a copy of this special issue. Simply leave a comment on this blog post by Tuesday 25th September 11:59 MDT and I'll randomly select a winner!
