Bird is the Word!

Hi all.  First off, my back is slowly getting better...thanks so much for all of your concern!  I love you guys!

Can You Digi It? has their next challenge starting today...hosted by me!  BIRD IS THE WORD!  Check out the inspiration board and join us for your chance to win!  There is even a freebie over on the CYDI? Blog that matches my paper pack!  :O)

Bad Back

Hi all!  I have missed you all and my crafty time too!  A super quick post this evening to show off some layouts I made before I seriously injured my back.  I'll pop back in later and add the links to the digital goodies I used for my layouts!

All the scrummy digital kits I used are from the Follow Your Art July Collab called Turning Point by Angie Young, Aria & Cilenia Curtis!

Good afternoon all!  I just wanted to pop in and tell you about a new site I saw...if you are into shooting vids, editing vids or making little movies and such, this site is definitely for you!  Introducing...VIDEEZY!  I use a sister site called Brusheezy and it is FABULOUS!

Videezy is a community that provides a place for professional and amateur videographers to download and share free HD stock video footage and free b-roll footage with each other. All the video clips you will find here are HD quality and completely free to use in your projects. Shared under a Creative Commons license or part of the public domain. To get started, may I suggest you create an account  or you can learn more by checking out the site HERE!

I went over to Videezy to check it out to satisfy my artistic (or nosy...whichever) side.  I found some very cool videos hiding over there.  One that caught my eye was called Goldfish in a Wine Glass.  It's one of the featured videos, so it's not too hard to fins, but it is shot very well.  It reminds me of one of the Baby Einstein videos.  Another one that I had to watch was called Crane Roost.  The beginning of this video was very interesting to watch.  The crane's head didn't look like it was moving...funny, but interesting creature!  My fave of the videos I watched?  Free Stadium and Clouds Time Lapse.  WOW!  What a cool effect!  They must have had the camera set up to record most of the day.  If I knew a thing about making and/or editing vids, this would be one I would use!  I can totally see it as an intro to my Kansas City Chiefs starting line-up or something!

Thanks so much for stopping in!  MWAH!!!

At The Beach...

Good morning, my crafty bleeps!  I hope all is well with you this lovely Tuesday morning.  I'm praying for a day that's cool here in Kansas...that would mean lower 90's!

I'm here with another fun challenge for the Can You Digi It? blog.  Michelle has chose AT THE BEACH for us and put together this fun inspiration board.  Join us for your chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the CYDI? Store (CYDI? image is not required, but we would LOVE to see you use them)!

I made a digital layout with Michelle's latest and greatest kit called Minty Sunshine.  I adore the way this page came out!  I also used LilyPink Designs' Text Cloud & Songbird image in the upper left corner.  I did "erase" the words in Photoshop to better match my page.

I hope my layout has inspired you because I can't wait to see what you'll come up with for our challenge!  Thank you so very much for stopping in today!  MWAH!!!

New Artist at CYDI?!

Today, we welcome Mike Eustis to the Can You Digi It? artist family!  Just WAIT until you see what he has in the store for you, but first a little about the artist:

Mike is a children's illustrator based in Seattle, WA, where the sun is ALWAYS shining on him.  He has been doing this for 12 years now.  When he's not drawing fabulous images, he likes to feed the birds, cook, and read historical fiction novels.

Maybe that's where the variety in his images comes from?  Today, we are debuting 8 of Mike's fabulous images.  Check them out before you head for the shop!

Bird Watching:

Happy Toilet Training:

Kitchen Help:

Les Paleontologists:

Little Scuba:

Off We Go:

Saturday AM Wizardry:

Something's Fishy:

The Design Team got to play with the image, Off We Go, early, and I sure had a ball with it!  What a fun image!  I had something made up in record time.  I also used Embellie Gellie, Crystal Wheel, Smooch in Kiwi & Best Glue Ever for my card.

Thanks so much for popping in to check out what I've been up to!  Keep on coming by too...we have some exciting things brewing at CYDI?!  MWAH!!!

Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day!

I'm popping in today to share a layout I made using a new Pixie Dust Studio image called Uncle Sam.  We went to Warsaw over the weekend and watched the fireworks from the boat.  They shoot them off of the Truman Dam every year and, let me tell you, they never disappoint!  The display is always amazing and I got a most excellent shot this year!  WOOT!  I have used some digital papers that I made called The 4th at Grandma's and cropped Uncle Sam to use only his head.  I used a sketch I found over at Sketch~N~Scrap.  I flipped it so I could use my new fave pic of the fireworks!

Thanks so much for coming by to visit me today!  I hope you have a wonderful and safe 4th of July!

Christmas in July?

Christmas in July?  You betcha!  Welcome to another challenge for Can You Digi It?!  April has challenged us to make a Christmas project using a non-holiday themed stamp.  Check out the cool ideas on this inspiration board!

This was a fun challenge and I really wanted to make sure I used non-traditional colors and an image that no one else would use...I believe I succeeded!  :O)  I used the image Hen Pecked from LilyPink Designs.  I didn't think the cute sentiment around the frame went with Christmas (though it certainly could), so I colored the band around the outside in black.  I used one of my fave stamps from CTMH for the sentiment.  Everything is colored with Copics.  I used some Embellie Gellie to grab the cute little pearls from the Zva Creative Pearl Wheel and added those to the corner of the card with the Best Glue Ever.

Come on over and join in this fun challenge.  You have until July 16th to link up on the CYDI? blog for your chance to win a $10 gift certificate for digital goodness at the CYDI? Store!  Thanks so much for popping in!  MWAH!!!
