Digital Delights

Happy December! I am so excited to share the new issue with y'all. It is our 49th issue--the very first one of year FIVE. How is that possible? Recently the staff took a look back at issue one and had quite a giggle. We have certainly come a long way, babies.

Here is our current cover (and link in):

This month our fabulous Showroom sponsor is Digital Delights by Louby Lou. These digital stamps are so freaking cute! I am happy to blame designer/owner Wendy for creating designs so cute that I could totally justify buying copic markers. A LOT of copic markers. I did not have them before I completed the article, but I am a coloring fool now!

I am so proud of the creativity of all of our designers. Take a peek here to see the 24 different items we created together.

Personally, I made more than the three that made it into the issue. We did have to pick and choose. The first item I made was the wine bag. I took one look at this girl and knew I had to make her in felt. She is just the perfect little santa gal:

My favorite of the images on first glance was the turtle. I have colored him a half dozen times with my copics now practicing to shade and highlight well. I am certain I will have him looking fabulous soon! For this layout, I used my photoshop to color him and printed him on a transparency over and over as a border. Too cute!

This card was also colored in photoshop and then glittered a bit by me. I tried a bunch of different ribbons for the reins, but liked the glitter best.

I am so thrilled to have the opportunity to play with digital stamping. As a hybrid scrapper, these are my new favorite scrapping toys. Have you stamped today?
