New layout for VDBC

I have finally found some time to make a couple of digital scrapbook layouts. The first layout is for the Sketch Challenge currently being run at Visual Designs by Chris and The More Team. Ileana has provided a Sketch Template and this is what I created with it.


These are photos of Gary's Father's Day Dinner 2011, which was probably the most indulgent meal I have ever created and was YUMMY! The frame is Ileana's IR00178, her files can be found HERE . The scrap kit is mine.... "Cookin' Up A Storm" .

The second layout is for Chris in my capacity as a member of her CT . Chris creates the most amazing files and I am so lucky to be on her Team. This particular file came from her last QMC which is a membership run every few months providing you with more than 20 files for the tiny sum of $10. This layout uses CD00910 - 2012 year of The Dragon, which is so new it isn't in the Store yet!

The photos are of a Bearded Dragon that frequents our yard at times. This one was quite happy to pose on the branch for some photos and seemed perfect to compliment Chris's file.


The cutter files have had styles and textures added to them to add dimension, the kit is mine, "Autumn Breezes" . Designed to show that personal cutter files can be used digitally very successfully!

Thanks for looking

Have a wonderful day wherever you are!

Finally.... a new Freebie

well, what a month! we have been to Adelaide visiting family, had three lots of visitors here, celebrated Christmas til it's almost Easter (and Easter Eggs are on the shelves here) and I finally have a moment to post on my Blog. I haven't lost any Followers over my absence, thank to those of you willing to stick with me!

Can you believe we have had about 5 Christmas celebrations with various members of the family and not a single photo! Our first Christmas with Steve and still not a single pic. I think I just got tired of the ongoing presents, food and so on, and Nicholas stayed behind in Adelaide for a week, then went camping for a week, so we were never all together to celebrate properly either. I will do better next year !. I swear I have put on the weight I lost and I feel so blah!

ewwww! temporary distraction as I kill a spider that just dropped on my computer .....

 I have a new Card template freebie for you at long last. i feel as though I haven't cut anything on my KNK for ages.... wait... it has been ages LOL


I have used CardStock by DCWV and paper from Crafters Choice. I have highlighted the scalloped mat and the buttons with Dimensional Magic and I used Kindy Glitz on the wings and accents of the Butterfly. Buttons are from Birch.

This card uses Shelly's 3D Butterfly from Paperthreads in the centre, but lends itself to other cutter files or a digital/rubber stamp. maybe a great big flower or a heart for Valentines.

Link to download Card Template 32 HERE . This Template is available in PNG, AI, KNK, MTC, PSD, SCUT2 and SVG . Please come back and leave a comment if you download, it only takes a minute and I appreciate them all.
