The Complete Guide to Digital Crafting

Have you seen it? Do you have your copy? What am I talking about? Well, it's a new craft magazine The Complete Guide to Digital Crafting aimed at digital stamps, papers etc and guess who's in it??? Ladybug Crafts Ink!!! I was so excited when I was asked last year to be a part of the first issue. I'd totally forgotten about it as I was approached back in late October (I can't even remember yesterday!) It came out on February 23rd and I just received my copy this looks FABULICIOUS!!! There is digital content and software (2 cd's) from 11 companies showing you how to use digital images from when you first buy them to downloading them and then uploading them to your project. I think this is going to be an invaluable guide to those of us that are afraid of doing more than sending emails and surfing the internet. There are also discount offers throughout the magazine which is always a bonus :-D

You can buy it at most WH Smith stores and some large newsagents. I've got the kettle on and once I'm finished here I'm going to settle down and have a good look through it.

I've got a Valentine's card to show you I made for hubby. He said it was the nicest one I've ever made him but then he says that every time I give him a card lol. See what you think...

I'm not sure why it's so squint...I wasn't drinking when I took the picture honest lol. I got these fantastic Cheerylynn heart dies from Frantic Stamper...there are two in the pack and I've used the small one. They are gorgeous...very delicate. I cut out the hearts from two different pp from my MME 6 x 6 A Happy Heart paper pad. I stamped 'love' from the SU! Tiny Tags set and punched it out with their Tiny Tags punch adding a Swarovski crystal. I stamped coloured and cut out the heart in a box from the Magnum Add On set and stuck it to the heart using a foam pad
The detail of the heart is gorgeous :-D

Ok...I'm going to love you and leave you. The kettle's boiled and the magazine is calling my name!

Have a great week :-D

Catch ya later x

Oh, I love this card, Kerry. The colours and paper are gorgeous and that die is to die for. That magazine also looks very interesting. Maybe I should place an order with some friends that will be going back to the UK for a few weeks this Friday, LOL.

Thanks for the heads up about the mag, it looks great Kerry. I will have a look in WHSmith when I am in town tomorrow. I will admit I have never used a digital image yet but I won 3 in a card challenge recently so I will give them a go. Your card is gorgeous I am sure you Hb loved...the little house is so cute. I also love your blog post on the wedding news....looking fab! Enjoy your cuppa,
