Frozen triple box card

Our granddaughter Elsie will be 4 on Sunday. She loves FROZEN, so I have made her a triple box card, with Frozen images printed and decoupaged up for dimension .

I bought the images and backing papers from an Etsy store.

Using your CD's to their full potential.

  So I thought maybe you would like to know how to make cards using our CDs, in various sizes.

First of all open your CD and find the design you would like to use.
In the CD I have used, Floral Fantasia, the design sheets make up an A5 card. If you would like to make something smaller, you need to go to your printing page.
This is mine.
I have chosen the pages I want to print, which is 7 and 8. Next I clicked on Custom Scale and chose 50%, you can make this any size you wish.
You will see in the white box, the printing area. It is now showing the 50% printing area.
I have also gone into Properties and changed the paper to Matt Photo paper, which is what I use for CD printing.
These are the sheets printed in 50% and 100%.

Once cut out and made up, these are my two cards.

The large one is A5 and the small one is 5x5 inches.

I hope this helps you, to get more out of your CDs.

See you soon,

Kraftyhands Challenge for May Lace and Pearls.

Todays card is for the Kraftyhands Blog Challenge which is Lace and Pearls.

I have used lace papers as well as the topper, which I cut around, to fit my die cut from this CD HERE called Seasonal Victorian Beauties.

You can join in with the Challenge HERE

I am not really a lace and pearls person, so found this really difficult... How will you do? Much better than me I am sure. haha.

Thank you for stopping by.

I have made this coaster for a challenge at Card Makers Paradise. Which is a Craft group that you pay $3 a month and you can download as many cutting files for your electronic machines for free. To me that's seems a bargain! Anyway here is the coaster, using Papetrey Ink Stamps and SU papers. Coloured with copics.

Natures Work at kraftyhands Blog challenge.

Over at Kraftyhands Challenge we have a theme of " Natures Work ".
I have used a topper from this pack. with paper from one of the paper packs. I used a Sue Wilson die for the rectangle. This is a lot smaller than I wanted so I cut 2 and cut them up to make one bigger mat.
I hope you will be joining in this month.
See you there!

Kraftyhands Challenge can be found here.
