Some Digital Sales to Share
I know that many of my blog readers are still having very hot weather but we have had rainy and cool weather all week here in Massachusetts. There is a definite feeling of autumn on the way and so my thoughts are turning to the fall holidays. I haven't posted a lot of digital projects recently but I want to let those of you who enjoy digital crafting know about some great sales.
I created the Halloween image at the top of this post using my Creative Memories StoryBook Creator Plus 3.0 software and some graphics from Lettering Delights. I am excited to tell you that Dollar Days are back at Lettering Delights and nearly all of their products are on sale for just $1 per item (mini albums, software and bundles are not included).
For the image above I used the Bootiful Overlays graphic set and the Black Magic graphic set and used various colors and effects from the StoryBook program to adapt the designs and create the textured backgrounds.
The same overlay can be adapted in the StoryBook program for an entirely different look. Here I used papers from the Reminisce Digital Power Palette to create a background for a scrapbook page. One of my favorite things about digital crafting is the ability to change your designs with the click of a mouse and create entirely different looks using the same basic elements. It is also great that you never "run out" of a digital paper!
I am a Lettering Delights Affiliate and you can support my blog by clicking the image above or in my left side bar to visit the Lettering Delights site.
Twisted Papers is another one of my favorite sites for vintage images which can be printed or used for digital projects. The images are available on CDs or as downloads. I used one of their images to create this floral star.
I then used the image to create a medallion for this card - here is a LINK to the original post about the card.
Stan and Russell are celebrating the Fourth Anniversary of their site. To help celebrate this anniversary, they are offering a 40% discount on all products at their Twisted Papers site and the companion site Creativity with a Twist (this is where they sell all sorts of interesting creative "stuff" including paper ephemera, stamping supplies and interesting found objects - it's hard to describe all of the "stuff" they have so you'll just have to take a look!).
The discount will end at midnight on August 29th. Just enter the code 40for4th at checkout (the code is case sensitive and there are no spaces).
Twisted Papers has a Facebook page HERE and they frequently offer free image downloads on Facebook and in their monthly newsletter so be sure become a "fan" if you use Facebook and to sign up to receive the newsletter by visiting their site.
I have a few Halloween projects that I have designed and hope to test cut tomorrow. It is a busy time since our son will be returning to college this week. If you are still having hot weather why not just "think fall" and start doing some seasonal projects to take your mind off the weather!
