Butterfly Poppy

Morning everyone :)

Here is another  card I have made using one of my Card Topper Digi Kits 'Butterfly Poppy'.
I simply printed it out on to some text and graphic paper, glued the base on to an 8"x 8" card blank and layered the peices with foam pads ...... and some pearls to finish it off :)

You can find the kit here

Baby Boy

Wow I didn't realize I hadn't been on my blog for so long!
I tend to post mostly on the Pink Gem Designs Face Book page these days as I like the social interaction :)

Any way just thought I would show some of the printable topper/card fronts I have been designing
These are great when you need a card quickly and of course you can add more embellies if you wish lol

The kit prints out a topper that will fit an "8 x 8" card blank and as you can see the display picture on the website doesn't do justice to the actual print as the colours are beautiful!
You can resize it in a graphics programme to make it smaller

You can fin the kit and some others here in our new products for April

Topper & Decoupage Kit

Morning Everyone!

Just wanted to show this card I made using the 'Bunny with Gift' Topper & Decoupage Printable Kit  which went on sale  yesterday

If you want to make a card quickly or you have just started to make cards and you don't have a lot of equipment then this kit will come in handy.............. all you need is some scissors, glue and foam pads ....and a printer of course.
 It' s ready to print on 2 A4 sheets and it  makes a topper for an 8" x 8" card blank but it can be made smaller in any graphic program 

The kit can be found here

Knitting & Crochet

Sorry for my lack of postings lately but I seem to spend more time on Face Book these days

We have a Pink Gem Designs FB page  here

.....and also a group for Pink Gem Designs DT & Friends here

I have not been making many cards of late

In between digi designing I have been doing a little bit of knitting and crochet .... it's my new love at the moment.
I have been knitting 50 years on and off and now I have learnt to do a bit of crochet (lots to learn though ha ha)
I do love how it grows so quickly compared to knitting though.

I have opened a little Etsy shop to sell on some things as there is only so many hats the grandchildren can wear lol.

I have been having a little dabble at pattern design with the knitting side of things (only small things) but I love it!

My Etsy shop is here
