Christmas Cards

This blog entry is a bit late but I didn't want to show these until they'd been delivered. I didn't make many handmade Christmas cards this year, just those for immediate family & a few of them are shown below - the rest are in my Picasa gallery.

VERY easy card - freehand cut the hill, edged it with Stickles & mounted using foam pads .  The trees & greeting were purchased and the snowflakes stamped to finish.

Free backing paper (from madaboutcards, I think), image stamped & coloured with Promarkers.

Recycled image, free backing paper, baker's twine by Creative Expressions.

Using Paint.NET to work out colour codes

I've put a new tutorial under Useful Information in my sidebar which shows how to use Paint.NET to work out RGB colour codes.  "How does that help me?" I hear you ask!  Well, if you use Promarkers to colour images but want to make a sentiment using Word or Serif PagePlus then, like me, you may find it a struggle to match the colours.  This tutorial shows you how to do that quite easily.

I've never done a tutorial before so be kind to me!

My 15 seconds of fame!

My 15 seconds of fame (yes, I know it's supposed to be 15 minutes but that's never going to happen!) came on 4th June 2011 when Create & Craft showed a birthday card I made for my sister on my Craft Robo.  I designed the backing paper myself using a free dingbat font.  I just did this as a test of how to get videos on my blog!
