I've decided to start entering card-making competitions again, you never know I might actually win something one day.  What I thought I'd do is design a card sheet using the sketch and make up the card and enter it into the competition, that way I am killing two birds with one stone, designing a craft sheet for Craftsuprint and entering a card in a competition.  The card to the left is the result of my first effort and it is going to be entered into the Sketch Saturday competition for Week 157.  Its Sketch Saturday's 3rd birthday this week - Happy Birthday Sketch Saturday!  The link to Sketch Saturday is over on the right hand side of this blog.
To make this sheet I used the butterfly background sheets and elegant flower from Diana's Creations and the jazzy butterflies came from Darq Illusions - thank you to both of them.

I think this sheet looks really good made up, it took a while to sell but I am really pleased with the result.  I got the graphics from Diana's Creations (link to her site over on the right hand side of this blog).   The card was made by Jayne Francis.  Click here to see more cards made by Jayne Francis.

This card was made by Audrey Wilson.  I bought a designer resource by Pauline Black called Japanese Clipart Florals and I have really enjoyed making sheets using these beautiful flower designs.

I uploaded the sheet for this card absolutely ages ago and it never sold, until now that is!  The card was made by Selina Dittmann and she has made it into a get well soon card, I didn't think of that at the time but it is quite appropriate.   Click here to see more cards made by Selina Dittmann

I'm having a great day sales-wise on craftsuprint,  all my Envelope Card kits are selling really well.  I haven't received my copy of the mailer yet so I don't know if it's gone out and that is the reason for the sales or if it's just people seeing them in the new items section and liking them. Whatever, I'm really pleased!  This is the latest of my envelope cards and it sold straight away,  I think it's really pretty, even though I say so myself!

Something I would really like to have a go at, when I have time (and of course can afford the software), is creating posers.  I dont know much about the terminology etc but I really love the little Cookie characters, they are so cute.  Diana aka "Diana's Creations" has started making Cookies and has put some on her Exclusive Blog, I have a CU4CU licence to use her stuff (over on the right of the blog) and she has kindly given me permission to use her Cookies in my craftsheets.  Here are the first two sheets I have put onto craftsuprint using her Cookies.  I'll upload pictures of cards if and when they sell and someone makes them.  I have added a link to the licence plate over on the right to take you to the "Diana's Creations" blog.

Well here is the first card uploaded from the above sheets.  This card was made by Eunice Roberts.  Click here to see more cards made by Eunice Roberts.

I'm really excited because I've got my first "New From" coming up in Wednesday's Craftsuprint mailer.  Its an A5 Envelope Gift Card.  Lots of people have done Envelope Cards which are ordinary cards with an envelope flap on them.  This is my version of the envelope card but with a pocket underneath the flap that you can put money, a gift voucher, tickets, anything that will fit really, and you know it will be safe and won't fall out when the recipient takes the card out of the envelope.  I've done 10 different designs and they will all be uploaded at the same time so what with all the new designs and the exposure on the mailer which goes out to all CUP's customers, I'm hoping I should get some good sales over the next week or so, fingers crossed!


This is a card made using one of my craftsheet designs and uploaded to CUP by Michelle Chivers

Complete Cardmaking

I received my copy of Complete Cardmaking in the post this morning with the first issue of  CraftsINPrint inside.  I have to say I was well impressed!  Not only did I get the Complete Cardmaking magazine, I also got the CraftsINPrint magazine, a bumper CD with loads of stuff on it and 10 free CUP downloads, I'll get all this again for the next two months and it only cost me £14.99 with free delivery!  To me this is a really good saving, the magazine normally costs £5.99 per month, and with me being in France free delivery is really good because it would normally add on quite a bit to the subscription price.  I really like the magazine as well because it is all about digital cardmaking which is what I am most interested in.  I really hope CUP do another offer like this for a further 3 months subscription, that's probably asking a bit much though but I'll keep my fingers crossed anyway.

This is my first posting on my new blog and its a picture of a card made by Dawn Jones using a craft sheet I designed for Craftsuprint.  The original artwork (the sewing machine piccy) is a designer resource by Sarah Horton, also on Craftsuprint.  Click the link above to go to to see my craftsheet for this card.
