Using digital stamps in craft projects

Birthday Buddies – a new kit for making cards

Between all my kids, sometimes it feels like some gets a birthday party invitation every week.

So to help us out, I created this Birthday Buddies kit.

What’s nice is the elements all have Silhouette Print and Cut files.  The focal images are colored (with Copics!) for you already and a collection of sentiments sized to fit on the tags are also included. It makes it so quick and easy to create cards.

I know some people would much rather color their own images, so there is also a pack just the plain digital stamps in the store.

Usually my kids want to help make the card (which I want to encourage).  With this kit. the kids can let me know what images they want and I just print and cut them along with printing a little of the digital papers of their choice.  Then they assemble the card themselves.  The birthday bear card above has a little pop-up birthday cake inside.

Right now, Birthday Buddies is on sale for 20% off as a new release.  So hop over and grab it – ’cause we could all use more buddies!

Inspiration Blooms Digital Kit – Make Your Own Journal

Have you ever wished you have a personalized journal to keep all your brilliant ideas?  Somewhere beautiful to save all those inspirational photos, magazine snippets, color schemes and project plans?  I’ve always wanted one and that’s why I worked with Jenn to create this Inspiration Blooms digital kit.

Journal page by Morag from

I wanted something colorful and cheerful – a little art journalish, a little distressed – with a very flexible format.  And of course it had to have flowers too!

Jenn – from Joyful Heart Designs took some of my flower designs and created an amazing collection of papers, including some cool worn and shaped papers.

All of the elements include Silhouette Print and Cut files (along with the usual PNGS) – so its super easy to cut out any journal piece you need.  There are plenty of journal labels, tags and page tabs.  There are also tabbed folders and of course flower elements.

I’ve also included some digital brushes.  Flowers (of course) but also some funky frames, word art and grungy corner stamps.

Finally, as a bonus to the full kit, I’ve added some quick pages for your journal.  Just add photos and notes – I even included one to track your favorite color combinations.

Whew!  That’s a lot of stuff! But I was having so much fun creating it that I just kept going LOL!

You won’t believe the amazing projects the Digichick designers made with this kit!  The journals and pages are jaw dropping. I’ll be sure to share them over the next few days!

Watercolor Blossoms digital kit project

Hi all!  Thought I’d share another project I made with the Water Color Blossoms digital craft kit.  This one was very simple -because the image, mat and tag are Silhouette print and cut files included in the kit.


I’m so enjoying my Silhouette cutter these days – Sometimes I’m amazed at how well it cuts all these tiny details.  They come out perfect!

Oh – also just wanted to mention that I notified the 3 winners of the $10 gift certificates.  Thanks everyone who played along!

Have a wonderful crafty day every one!

Some Bunny Digital Scrap Kit and Digi Stamp Freebie

Hello everyone – Happy Spring Break.  Well, its spring break here anyway.

To celebrate, I thought I’d post a new Facebook Freebie.

This little kit contains:

  • 8 textured solid and patterned digi papers
  • 2 layered large tags that can be used as image mats
  • 2 smaller layered tags for sentiments or gift tags
  • an 8 inch border strip with space to type in a sentiment.
  • A bunny image in black and white (a digi stamp you can color yourself) and a colored version (I’m trying to teach myself how to “watercolor” in Photoshop 🙂 )
  • And – if you’d like to recreate my sample card, I included a Silhouette Print and Cut file for all the pieces of the card front.

You can download the kit on our Facebook page right here.  Just click on the Freebies for Fans tab and “like” us if you haven’t already.

I hope you enjoy it and I’d love to see what you make – so drop me a note so I can check it out.


In other news –  I’ve started re-stocking the Paper Garden Projects Store.


I was actually thinking I was going to trim it way back, or maybe close it because of the time and energy it takes away form other pursuits.  But… I started to miss it.

So… I think I’m going to stock up again on the things I really-really love.   It would be delightful if you’d leave comments on paper craft products you really love – so I can check them out and maybe carry those too.

Here are a few things back in stock:

“Hop” on over when you get a chance .

Using silhouette cutting files on cards

DH’s Birthday is on Monday – so I need to get busy and make a card.  While my DH is indeed quite a catch, I’m not sure this is the right card for him or not.  Baseball is not really his sport.  But,  I still have a few days to see if anything else comes up.

I used the Get it in Gear cutting files and the Daddy day Digital stamps.  The papers are from my Owl Wear Woolies digital kit.  So I really can claim I made the card all by myself!

The Copic Markers I used to color the image were:

  • E-21, 23, 25 and 29 for the mitt
  • E-40, 41, 43 for the ball
  • E-07 for stitches
  • W 0, 1, 3 for shadows and a little YG-91 at the base.

The weather here has been amazing  – almost too hot.  So much is blooming already!  So I’ve been out ion the garden a lot.  Hopefully we will get some rain soon.  We need it, and its the perfect excuse to spend time designing new stuff.
