Crafty Secrets Snow Play

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are getting everything in order for a rocking new year!  I did some heavy duty grocery shopping so I'm ready for just about anything that might come my way - including unexpected visitors.  It wouldn't be new years without lots of snacks and bubbly drinks.

I'm the guest designer this month at Crafty Secrets, so every Monday in December I will have a new project to share.   This is my final week playing along with the Crafty Secrets design team.    I love their vintage images and unique designs.  Recently I rediscovered them and found that most of their designs are digital. I am guessing that most of you are like me and have only dabbled a little with digital designs.   You can purchase single images of  Crafty Secrets designs or entire discs.  The discs are really amazing - everything you need to create a card is at your fingertips - digital paper, sentiments, embellishments, frames - it's all there.  There are even 3-D projects on the disc for gift boxes/bags and place cards for your holiday dinner table. 
If you have an electronic cutter - I used the Silhouette Cameo - the designs are easy to import to your library and manipulate. You can also use other software that will allow you to manipulate photo files like Photoshop.   I have to say it was really nice to have everything perfectly coordinated in one place.  The pattern paper and all the images are color and theme matched to work together - you just print what you need, die cut and assemble.   too small for other projects.
