Digital....not only for the scrapbookers!


I'm back once again! I'm really trying to make the most of my last couple of weeks off and squeezing in as much inky time as possible so you're probably gonna be fed up of me by the end of next week - ha!

Well, as promised, I'm sharing a couple of cards I've created using the My Memories Suite (MMS) software. These are hybrid projects (I couldn't resist the urge to ink up a stamp for each *wink*)

So firstly I took full advantage of the digital stitches available on the software. Anything to keep the peace between me and Machiney (my much neglected sewing machine that I have a love/hate relationship with!)

So Happy

Not sure if you can see it, but there's a circular panel of houndstooth pattern on this card (my camera struggled to capture it!) It was based on this Viva La Verve Sketch (I'm trying really hard to squeeze 'em all in this month!) I totally CAS-ified it but I'm hoping that's OK!

Next, a card totally dedicated to my bloggin' buddy, Moe (aka Diva!)

hello friend

Whilst admiring the many pretty patterns available on the MMS software I came across this very cool, chic leopard print. As soon as I saw it I just knew I had to use it for Moe's amusement. Y'see Moe has some gorgeous lounge pants with this pattern and they're known as her official stamping pants! Hope you like the card, Diva :)

Seeing as this is a card dedicated to a fabby friend, I'm also entering this into the Paper Crafts August 2011 Gallery Challenge too.

Again - this card was based on this Viva La Verve Sketch which I followed a bit better thanks to Andrea being on a CAS kick when she sketched it *wink*

Well I hope you likey. One things for sure, digital ain't half as scary as I thought it would be :)
