I’ve been playing around with digi art today and trying to get some goodies packaged up for my Creative University class this month. It’s in less than 2 weeks and I’m trying to tie up loose ends. Most of my roomie gift stuff is done and I think I finished my secret sister gifties. I’ve got to finish my charms and part of that process was finishing up my little “charm cards” to go with them in their little baggies. I could just toss them in a baggie, but what’s the fun in that. I like frilly fun things, especially in tiny packages of jewelry and I LOVE giving them :)
Here’s what I created to attach my charms to. The tiny black dots are where I will poke holes and tie the charms to the card. They fit neatly in a tiny ziplock baggie. Yay!
One of my themes for myself this year is to “Keep Calm and Carry On”… you know, like the British war saying from WWI. You can read about it here. I am trying to teach myself to just be calm and get through it, no matter what life throws at me… I tweaked it for my charm project to say “Keep Calm and Craft On”.. no matter what your craft room/desk/space throws at you.. even if it IS glitter covered globs of mod podge.
So here ya go. It’s 2 5/8 x 1 7/8”.
The crown is from itkupulli something or other.. I think she's on etsy.. it's a free download test sheet. I extracted it from the test sheet (also used said test sheet for my charm image which I will post later). The frame is from graphicsfairy.com I extracted it from a background. The wings are from some random image I found online, the glitter is from some freebie blog train pack, the red is a snippet of a background paper and the black strip is snipped off a black textured ribbon.The CU 2011 are letters from a digital kit from a Sweet Shoppe Designs kit by MBennet (Old News?).
I created the word art from bits of paper and text and I burned the edges with the burn tool. The font is called Portable Remington or something. I manipulated (in all the text images) each letter individually because I didn't like the automatic spacing.
I am TERRIBLE at remembering who’s what I used where.. this is why I don’t usually give “credits” on images I create. I use so many items from so many places. :)
Thanks for stoppin in!
