Happy Friday! Today, I'm participating in the Paper Crafts Magazine's Holiday Cards and More 12 Blogs of Christmas Blog Hop.
If you're hopping with us, you should be coming from Latisha's blog. To start from the beginning, or if you get lost along the way, here's the order:
Jocelyn Olson <--You are here
We're each using one of the free Paper Crafts sentiments (you can find them HERE) and I used the "Yuletide Greetings" on my ultra-CAS card:
I pretty much just used the sentiment for the card, although I used it in two ways. First, I imported the image into the Silhouette Designer Studio and die cut the sentiment on silver cardstock.
For the "greetings," I converted the file into a png file and cropped the word from the rest of the sentiment. Then, I converted the sentiment into a digital brush in Photoshop. It was a quick and easy way to recolor the word, and now I have the "greetings" brush for my next project (think Season's Greetings, Birthday Greetings, etc.). Here's a close-up:
I received my copy of Holiday Cards & More, and it is FABULOUS! It's definitely worth buying for card, tag, and gift wrapping ideas. If you can't find it, you can purchase it HERE.
You can try to win a copy by commenting on each of the designers' blogs. Each designer will give away one issue. To enter, please leave a comment on this post (through September 25th) for a chance to win.
Next on the hop is the very talented Meredith. Be sure to hop all the way to the Paper Crafts' blog (psst--they have some great prizes).
Thanks for looking!
