Challenge Announcement

I am so excited to announce that Val's Creative Studio will be hosting challenges for www.valsdigitaldesigns.com. Today I would like to share with you what that challenge will be. Since Val's Digital Designs has 50% off  all of their Christmas stamps and 2 free templates in the store I have decided we will be making a Christmas project using the stamps and the templates. For my project I used the mitten template and Stars Snowman digital stamp. I made my project into a gift card or money holder. You can do whatever you like as long as the template and a Val's Digital Stamp are used. Some ideas I had are gift tags. Christmas tree ornaments, cards, banners etc.  The thing I love most about digital stamps is you can resize them for whatever project you are working on. For my Gift card holder I printed it at actual size  and that gave me 3 inches across the top off the mitten ( not the cuff) so a gift card will fit in it vertically .  The Challenge will start on November 15th so click on the Challenges  For Val's Digital Designs on the banner here on my blog  for more information and to link to the challenge. I hope you will play along and join us  for a chance to win some free digital stamps of your choice.

  Here are the front and back of my project . Hope all have a great day ! Val

We were at Saskatchewan Landing Provincial Park camping with family and had a fantastic time, the weather was actually pretty nice only had part of one day that rained. Our daughter and son in-law gave us coupons for 18 holes of golf with a cart for mothers day and fathers day for the four of us. What a lot of fun, we had our 2 and a 1/2 year old grand daughter with us she was such a little trooper and was good as gold 'she did have a 45 minute nap in the golf cart, she is such a little doll and loves all sports. We're back home now and trying to catch up on yard work. I've also been trying to spend as much time as I can in my studio drawing and coloring and working on things for my store we are creating a new look for the store so I have been coloring images on my computer for the banners and such it will all be ready in about 6 weeks from now. I'm also trying to set up a schedule for posting on my blog, store, face book etc. so you will have an idea when to check things out. So that's what I've been doing! Now for todays card hope you like it.
 The image is our digital stamp Jessie Bear. I colored him using my prisma pencils, all of the paper and the die I used are from Stampin'Up. The digital stamp is available at www.valsdigitaldesigns.com Hope you have a great weekend! Creatively yours Val

Christmas presents

I wanted to share with you today some gifts I made for 3 of our grand children. Just before Christmas I saw on You Tube some collages and I thought this looks like fun and something special I could make for the kids. So I took some 9x12 canvases covered them with pieces  of pattern paper and some stamping with some stamps I had. I then drew images of the kids loaded them into the computer and resized them to fit. I also used dies and punches to make the flowers and such.

Oh and by the way the kids loved them! Well that's all I have for today be back soon! Val
