Silhouette tip - Moving the center away from an object

You can move the center of an object away from and it and make it an axis point
The centre of the object is still the same but now you have created a new axis point so in case you want to rotate now the object will rotate around the new axis point ie the line from new axis point to the object acts as radius.
Hopefully the images will explain better
 You can move the center of an object away from it (image 1) .
Image 1

That way if you want to rotate it etc the moved center will act as an axis point(image 2).
image 2

This is very helpful to create your own designs. For eg I used this to rotate around a circle (using ctrl c to copy and Ctlf F to paste in place) and made the  shape (image 3)

image 3


Now you can see the possibilities.

It's always tea-time

I recently discovered this beautiful digi stamps - http://aliciaslittleshop.blogspot.com/
I of course had to play with the images.
Here is one which I made into a card
This image is called Alice in wonderland


I did add lots of texture like cheesecloth (rather cotton bandage ) , twine, burlap for leaves. I did crochet the lace trim  (border). Advantage to making your own trims is you can make it to size and it won't unravel.
Alicia also has challenges so I am entering this into her challenges - http://www.aliciaschallenge.blogspot.com/2013/02/challenge-3.html
I have a few more and maybe I can play with one more this week

Envelope board

As you know the envelope board by we r memories has lots of mistake. You can download the corrected one from -http://www.weronthenet.com/tool-directions. I printed it and then since I have a inkjet and any water will smear it all about- I then poured some glossy accent - outside the image in white area of paper before cutting (do not cut the paper until you do this step) and then with a squeezied (the squeeze was a cardboard or cardstock piece)  quickly across the whole image so that a thin layer quickly dries . Then cut I to shape and then xyroned it.
 I did try the spray glaze but that soaks in and makes paper transparent and when you paste it shows the board measurements like ghost image. if you do not want to xyron you can use label paper or sticker paper and follow the same step

Be My Friend

Made this card from  another new  release this week at DS4J called Pippin and apple



I have a modge podge of things. The wings were colored with gel pens. They are really shiny. Spica pens have the same effect. I used some butterfly stickers from dover stickers printed on to sticker paper. Some faux stitches all over the card. I rounded only the oppposite corners in the card.I used 4 tabs. I like the use of tabs. Leads in the lines and continues with the lines on the note paper.

Rub a dub dub

This is one of the new release this sunday at DS4J called BathTime


The background paper is made using the gelli arts plate. So fun to do. to get the effect here I drew some circles for bubbles and placed the red heart  yarn - the remaining yarn I had left over after doing the ruffled scarves. The border is from old Martha Stewart punch which have had for ages and had not used at all until now . Stuck some acrylic beads - is it called skittles?

Happy Easter

Hi
This is Pam from Bugbytes and PapillonDigitalDesigns today on Sassylady.
Thanks Sheila for having me as a designer in your blog.
I have an simple Easter card for you all today.
Someone gave this lovely images to me. It's a printed image and not a sticker which can be used in a card.
So I decided to use it. I know. What a surprise since I need atleast 2 before I use it. It is from heartwarmingvintage.
I love using white. Guess it's a phase.


Except for the border and doily cut with silhouette everything else is simple cutting. I did emboss the card and run an yellow ink pad over it to pop up the embossing.
So that's my card for today
Thank you all for reading and if you comment - :) hugs and extra thanks. I love reading the comments. To a Crafter that is charging fuel :).
Happy Crafting
Pam
