Hey there, Easter Peeps! Leigh O’Brien here! Well, it’s post-Easter but I wanted to share a couple of Alma’s new digis. I AM HAVING SO MUCH FUN with these. (If only I didn’t have to act like the normal people and go to work every day there’d be so much more time to play!) The really awesome thing is that everything is a bit customizable…size ’em, erase parts, relocate parts, separate parts then print and cut on your cutting machine. It’s freeing!! Now, not all images can be fully manipulated and you want to save the integrity of the TCP image designs but it IS really great to have some options in making the images work for what your mind envisions.
All of that being said, I created two Easter cards this weekend. This first card features the MY FAVORITE PEEP digi. Such a cute little gnomie and chick. With some finagling I separated the chick from the gnome so that I could print and cut a bunch of little chicks. I flipped them horizontally as well so that they’re facing different directions.
On my second card I used the FLUTTERBY digi set. I’ve always been partial to these big eared bunnies! On this one, I opened the file twice into my Silhouette software, flipped one image horizontally, and placed them so that they’re frolicking for butterflies. I’m still practicing on getting the sentiments printed in the right sizes. I used the “Just Fluttering By To Say Hi” sentiment on the inside and just used a font on my computer for the front sentiment. The grass die in the SLIMLINE BASICS CutUps and my favorite cloudy patterned paper (an oldie from October Afternoon) finish it up.
I’m still trying to learn the ins and outs of the digi stamps and cutables AND how my Silhouette works but I’m definitely recommending it. It’s super cool! Try it!

Don’t forget there’s a SALE going on over here. And because it’s APRIL, the discount has increased to 30% off all in stock stamps, dies, stencils and embellies. Once they are gone, they are all gone.
