I don't usually buy 'Complete Cardmaking with your PC' magazine as it's a little more that I usually pay and quite a lot 'thinner' than other Crafty mags and I was thinking, 'hmmm, I could buy something crafty instead.' But there was something pink and shiny on the front cover, so I succumbed and bought it. It came with a free CD-Rom which appears to be packed with loads of digital elements to download and print again and again.I Googled the mag, part of the Crafts-on-the-Net- group and was very surprised to see, what looked like, the same mag with CD-Rom advertised on their own website for quite a lot more! (and it had sold out!) *Since typing this the price has been changed
Check out the link, there's a forum (I'm there somewhere) and a gallery with plenty of lovely makes to give you ideas and, if you hunt them out, freebies!
I've looked at the pictures in the mag, but I still need time to study the words! There's two Crafters Companion designs sets from their Boys and Girls (Space rocket and pretty pink Castle) collections to print out with toppers, backing papers, inserts and other elements. So now I'm beginning to think this buy was a very good bargain! I made this card really quickly for a forum birthday, as I was waaay behind with my makes again. I used the paper from the 'Summer Fun' collection, which also includes letters and numbers and there's 'Cherry Pie', that also has lovely bright colours...
Okay...are you paying attention? Who can spot my (deliberate) mistake?
Before I go I'd like to welcome two new followers to Spyder's little dusty Corner! Yayyy!! (actually if you could see, it's really Spyder's very messy, paper up to my ears, I can't find the cat, corner. Anywaaaay, a big (((wave)) first to Johanna of Johanna's Creative Garden. Johanna makes lovely cakes, uses her cross-stitch-to decorate her cards and also her avatar, called The Kiss, was cleverly made by her too! (I'm rubbish at sewing!)
"Hi!" and a big (((wave)) to Kirsten from Kirsten's Krafty Place, which most of you must know as she has a trillion followers and is busy doing all sorts of crafty things everywhere! Pop over to see her lovely blog, don't forget to wish her a Happy Birthday and see what lovely blog candy she has for some lucky winner! That is it for now...I'm going to play with the 'post time thingy, and set this Post to appear round about 8.30 tomorrow morning. I've only just found out you can do that! With any luck this will magically appear while I'm on my way to work! More ATC's tomorrow.... that's if the Aliens don't come back, and maybe a card using something else from the CD-Rom. The fairy Castle perhaps!?!
Oh, did you spot the mistake???? Haha...No! I'm not telling!!
