Latest in my store: CU doodles, card designing set & printable


hi everyone,  Just been over at the social room in the cUp forum and it looks like most peeps are in for a lovely bright sunny day, down over the border anyway. Hope you are one of them!!  Unfortunately we're not so fortunately here in the west of Scotland, but hey that's what we are famous for, our rain.[[update, sunny here now too!]]

With that in mind, I've created a new set of line & colour images with a Rainy Days theme!! lol

as always the images are linked to my store :)








I have also created a Card/printable designers resource set with backing papers and elements you can use to create products for your store.

**Please note you cannot use this pack to create your own digiscrap download products,  please ignore the clause that states this on the TOU view on the store page, it is removed in the zip file TOU**

they can still be used to create S4H pages for individual customers, in flattened jpg format.




I answered a design request yesterday for a card to suit someone who owns a children's clothing shop, she collects baby shoes. This is what I came up with, don't know if it is suitable but i had fun creating it!!

It is a DL size card but with a bit of creativity and downsizing, could be used for other card sizes and in other printable projects.

The decoupage shoes at the bottom, could be utilised as card toppers by cutting round them in equal squares and matting them onto slightly larger coordination stock card to give them a border.
