A New Card, A New Look


I downloaded a free 30 day trial of Photoshop Elements and have been playing around with it a lot! :D In fact, I spent so much time with it yesterday, I only got 2 cards made! Haha! So do you like the new look? I have seen some other women using this digi kit but decided it was too cute not to use! I started out by making my blog header and then decided to make some sidebar headers as well. I really like how they turned out! Oh...check out my picture too! I figured out how to make a watermark! It's simple but I think it looks neat.

Anyway, today's card was an easy one but I am not that happy with how it turned out. I used Jen's Sketch For You To Try from last week and Krisitina's Color Challenge on it. I pulled out my Stitched Exotics stamp set and paired it with my Candy Lane dsp. I used some chocolate cordoroy brads and wide ribbon as well. The sentment is a rub on from the Chit Chat pack.

I am going to keep this post short today because I have lots to do and we still need to go to Pueblo to get groceries! I hope you all have a fabulous Saturday! :D

The blog looks great Steph!! You'll be hooked into digi scrapping before you know it!! If you want to give digi scrapping a try....shoot me an e-mail and I can give you some pointers on some great online classes and shopping sites!! Also, I'm hosting the Scrappy Sunday sketch challenge at PCP and tomorrow I'm using a digi template as the basis for my sketch - templates are a SUPER easy way to get started with digi scrapping!! And now that you're learning your way around PSE....your paper stash is going to grow tremendously!!! (I often use printed digi papers on my cards)!!! I'm so excited when I see people exploring the world of digi!! I think you have my e-mail.

Love the card Steph, great job! I have both PSE and Photoshop and have been using them for years. I love the PSE and use it to edit my photos of cards. Have fun with your new toy!
