January preview - boxed flower card or framed cameo

Brenda will be running the class in January and there is a choice - the first is this boxed card with elaborate ribbon flower.

The second choice will be two cards - one monochrome card of an intricate die cut frame with a cameo centre

and a second where the main feature will be a cutout (disregard the red background - I only used that to make the cutout stand out in the photograph!)

Tealight card template

Just in case anyone didn't copy the template for the tealight box before using it, I have uploaded it here. 

To download it, click on the image on the left to get it to full size, and then right click and "save as".  It will save as a jpg file on your computer and you should be able to print it out at the full size.  Fingers crossed...!!

My Memories Suite - digital scrapbooking software

I've just been given a free copy of the My Memories digital scrapbooking software in return for publicising it. As an incentive, I've been given another free code to give away as a prize. All people have to do to be in with a chance of winning is to pop on over to my personal craft blog and read this post - which explains what to do. This is digital scrapbooking software that is rated #1 by Amazon and which has a value of $40... and they do have quite a few freebies on offer that you can adapt and use. It''s an American site - but I downloaded everything with no trouble at all.

I'm giving everyone two weeks to enter (my craft blog isn't exactly teeming with visitors, but I did warn them of that!) and at the end of the time I am going to pick a number at random from the comments. Hopefully there will be one or two there by then!! Anyhow, I thought I'd give busy bee visitors a chance too - but you would have to leave a comment on my blog so it can be seen as being all above board.

I've only had it a few days and have played with it a bit - the first page I had a go at was for Remembrance Sunday and it was really very simple. I think you can use it for card layouts too, but I haven't tried that yet.
