Card Template freebie

I have been creating Card Templates for some time now and thought I could share them with you via my Blog. Some of you may already have these but I am hoping that for most of you, you will be downloading something new. Please let me know your thoughts on my giving away these templates in the comments.

I have to begin out of sequence, in fact I will probably post  most of them out of order as it depends on whether I have finished the conversions or not :) as I am trying to offer them in as many cutter formats as possible as well as PSD files for Photoshop.

So.... we begin with Template 4. This template is one of my favourites as I really love the jigsaw pieces :) you can actually fit them together for a four piece puzzle :)  below are two examples of this card, one showing the original picture before I cut it into pieces :)




Still using Box to download as that seemed to work so well. Formats included are AI, KNK, GSD, SVG, SCAL, WPC and PSD .

Link to download AI, KNK, PSD and GSD formats HERE

Link to download SVG, SCAL and WPC HERE  Links Removed

Please leave a comment if you download. If you create a card frpom this Template I would love to see it and feature it on my Blog. Please use email link in sidebar to send me a pic!

Have a wonderful day wherever you are!

New.. and I mean Brand NEW Freebie!

Another challenge being held over at VDBC is being run by Jan of Sam and Hailey Designs. It is a Colour Challenge. Well, you all should know how much I love Colour Challenges.... seems like I just need someone to present me with a colour palette and I am rushing off to start up Photoshop and see what I can come up with.

and this is what I came up with


and with this kit and a file from Chris, I created this layout. A few years ago we went on a boat cruise out of Victor Harbour, South Australia. We were hoping to see Whales, but got Dolphins and Seal Lions instead. We still had a wonderful time, I love being out on the water, and if you look closely (and I mean really closely LOL), you can see two dolphins surfacing in my pic! The star speckled Dolphin is CD00584 - Sparkle Dolphins available HERE .


and now for the great part..... this kit is available for YOU!

Links have been uploaded to box.net so am trying a different file host..... lets hope this works for you. Please leave a comment if you download and let me know your thoughts on the kit, it only takes a moment of your time.

3rd Anniversary on at VDBC


it's on! Visual Designs By Chris and The More Team are turning THREE! There are heaps of Challenges going on .... check out the Forum.

Ileana from I Scrap Designs is holding a Tic Tac Toe Challenge and this is my entry.


For the card below I have used

IR00006 - Lattice Card available in the Store
IR00027 - Stems and Leaves available in the Store
IR00215 - Flowers Speak available in the Store

I have completed the top row and the right hand side column -
glitter or bling - I used Kindy Glitz on my stem
buttons - the ladybug is a button, but I had to get Gary to cut off the loop at the back so it would sit flat on my card
ribbon - the stems of my flowers are a light green ribbon
colouring - I cut the Lattice from white card and then coloured it with homemade glimmer mist
brads etc - I used brads as the centres of my flowers

I am really pleased with the finished result! Hope you like it too



There are plenty more Challenges being held with some wonderful prizes.. so head over and check them out!

Have a wonderful day wherever you are!

Time Flies.....

This weekend coming up Visual Designs by Chris and the More team are celebrating their 3rd Anniversary! I have been involved with Chris for some time now as a member of her Design Team and it has been wonderful. Come on over and check out all the Challenges to come and some that are already running! Click on the Logo to take you to the Forum.


And on the theme of celebrations......

My Baby's baby is nearly ONE years old... I cannot believe it. Lachlan loves the new Giggle and Hoot show on the ABC here and so Rebekah wants him to have a Giggle and Hoot themed birthday party... all blue and orange!! So out came Photoshop and my KNK Maxx and Make The Cut. I had just completed a Challenge over at Paperthreads to add two different textures to a cut up box and so used that knowledge to add this picture (that I created in Photoshop) to this JB00337-Candy treat box by Jan of Sam and Hailey Designs. As I am a complete newbie to MTC, it was definitely a challenge, but I am so pleased with the results. Little Hoot on the front is a Print and Cut which I have stuck on the front of the box with raised pop dots. MTC is just so easy to do P&C with, I wanted to keep on playing, but after the 24th one, the novelty was wearing off LOL



Don't forget to join us for the huge Anniversary party at VDBC and win some great prizes as well as having a ball! Click on logo above to take you there!

Have a wonderful day wherever you are!
