Craft Artist 2 - Digital Crafting

I recently designed some digi cards with a copy Serif's Craft Artist 2 Professional software. It's ideal for creating your own digital cards, papercrafts projects and the like on your home pc. Simply use one of their digikits and design to your hearts content before printing out on your home printer.

They have numerous digikits available, but two of my faves are Daydream and Aviary Paradise - loving the birds and the bird cages!

I designed the below cards using these kits and this quick and easy to use software.
One for Valentines Day and one for a pretty Thank You card.


Created with the Aviary Paradise Digikit.                 Created with the Daydream Digikit.



Do you craft digitally or do you prefer to physically craft with real craft products? I believe they both have advantages and I like to work both ways.

Patterns With Zesty Zing!

With the gloomy start to the year here in the UK, I thought I would add a bit of zesty zing with these patterns I designed. I upcycled a container to create a pencil pot, used another with a lid as a storage container and made a greetings card for any occasion.


I'm liking these bright colours to cheer up my work space!

What items do you have on your desk or in your craft room that brighten your day?
