Some new Digi designs

Lately, I've been doing some design work for the website at Bible Truth Music (aka BTM). My husband works for BTM during the week and is an evangelist & we travel representing BTM on weekends. My husband is responsible for designing two weekly promotional emails & BTM has recently launched their new & improved website and I've been able to design some of their promotional graphics. I don't design the covers of the CDs/Books but I design the promotional materials that include those graphics. I try to challenge myself to do some new technique on each item. I am having so much fun and it helps my husband with his work on the website too. :)

Here are a couple of my favorite recent items (in case you're interested, clicking the pics will take you to the appropriate page on the BTM website):

This one was in the weekly promotional email (our daughter calls my husband the "Spam King" because the mailing list is over 12,000 emails - LOL) and is on the website:

This is only on the website.

This one, I originally designed as a promotional postcard that will be sent out to LOTS of people. :) It is also being used on the website.

And here is my new all-time favorite. For this one, I designed the digi paper behind the CD cover from scratch. I was so excited -- OK maybe I'm a bit of a dork but I've never designed my own digi paper before. What you can't see in the pic is that the speckles are tiny leaves. So many of the music items seem to have more masculine colors or the bright primary colors for the children. It was fun to design with a more feminine theme.

I hope this didn't sound too much like a commercial. I'm just enjoying my digi-designing and wanted to share. My friend that got me into digi just may have created a monster!! ;)

One Last Door Sign

Our daughter had a roommate that had to move to a different room in order to accept a dorm leadership position. So, she also had a new roommate move in. I was requested to make a sign for the new roommate to coordinate with the other 3 girls' signs. You can see those signs in my posts here and here. With her permission, here is her sign:

Supplies: Paper, glazed brads, & Bling It - BG, Cardstock - SU (ivory); Stickles - Stardust, Cricut - Jasmine, Fiskars border punch - Give it a Swirl, Pen - Zig Ball Writer

Again, I used the easel design from SCS and it qualified for a challenge at Our Daily Bread Stamps to have red or pink and bling.

Papers: BG, Bazzill
Ink: Colorbox fluid chalk
Stamp: Heidi Swapp

Owl Valentine

This is the valentine I made for my husband using the easel design from this tutorial at SCS. It qualified for challenges at Our Daily Bread (ODB) and Stampin' Sisters in Christ (SSCC). For the ODB challenge it had to have a heart somewhere on the card. For the SSCC challenge it had to have two things used to make one heart has two layers, each of my two patterned papers is double-sided, my words are double matted, I have two types of sparkle (stickles on SWAK and a glitter pen for the owl's "mascara"), and I used two different stamps from two different companies.

PP - MME - 29th Street Market
Stamps - Sweet n Sassy (owl) & Stuio G (SWAK)
Computer Font - CK Andecdote
Kimberly watercolor pencils
Brads - MM
Pens - Uniball Signo (white), Creative Memories (black) & SU (close to cocoa), GellyRoll (clear star - "mascara" on the owl)
Fiskar's Threading Water Punch
Cricut - George Cartridge (heart)

Frogetful Sam

Stampin' Sisters in Christ has a weekly challenge. This week's is to make a card that has a childish theme or child on the card but cannot be a baby card. I recently purchased several stamp sets from Sweet & Sassy Stamps and Sam was the perfect choice for this card. {Be sure to stop by Sweet & Sassy Stamps because all their clear acrylic stamps are now 50% off!} I chose a sketch from Blogabella for my card.

Freaky Friday Challenge 2-5 {Priceless}

I am this week's Forum Fairy (kind of like a guest DT member) over at AC Bailey Designs. One of the things I get to do is come up with this week's Freaky Friday Challenge.

Here is this week's challenge: In keeping with our family's love of word-play, this week's challenge is to use an advertising slogan as your main title/journaling element. It's OK to tweak the slogan to make it fit your picture. Also, use only one large photo and some buttons.

The journaling strips/title on my layout quotes our son's actual Facebook status the day after his son was born. When I read his status that day, I knew it had to be scrapbooked. :) I took this picture the first time our son held his son.

Journaling strips say: All the missed work...Worth it. All the lost sleep...Manageable. Watching the love of your life go through 20+ hours of labor...very hard. Getting to hold my son...priceless.

Tag up in the top left corner says: Ian's Facebook status 10/23/09 2:33 pm.

Supplies: Paper: Studio 8 Paper Company - Dinosaur Land Collection (Fossil, Brontosaurus, Jurassic, & T. Rex); CS - Georgia Pacific; Buttons - MM (In Bloom); Lettering: American Crafts Thickers - Subway, Computer Font - Eurostile; Adhesives: Glue Glider Pro, Gossy Accents, Xyron, Zots Glue Dots; Misc: DMC floss, chipboard, Nestabilities Label 3; Design inspired by Pagemaps Jan. 2010
