Serif Craft Artist 2 samples for DT call

Well, if any of you saw the Serif Give Away show on Create and Craft at 9 am this morning, you will have seen some of the samples that I made for the show, after having been asked by Hayley West if I'd like to do some for her. I wanted to show new Serif users that the software isn't just for scrapbook pages and flat card.

The picture below is the group shot of all the projects I did, bar 1. I did a scrapbook layout from the 'layouts' section but forgot to save it or take a photo so will have to ask Hayley to take a picture for me and send it back. 

There were 5 digikits in total and I made 3 projects per digikit. 

This set below is from Bluechie Coo

The 'special delivery' gift set comprises a card where the sender can fill in the details of the new arrival.
The cracker contains scratch mitts as a gift item
The gift box has been topped with a pinwheel from a template on the cd

This set is from Pinkie Pie

Again, a simple card using elements from the digikit
The gift box contains scratch mitts
The wine bottle hanger is for dad to "wet the babies head" - a template from the digikit

The three items below are all from "Classic Wedding"

2 cupcake wrappers with added embellishments from the kit 
A small pillow gift box with a gift for the groom (who is often forgotten, yet its his day too)
And finally confetti cones, these could have the names of the celebrants added if desired

The following 3 projects are from 'Blushing Bride'

The top photo is a simple guest book printed onto card stock and the pages printed onto 120gsm paper
then held together with eyelets.

Next is a ring pillow. This was printed onto printable fabric, then sewn up and stuffed. 

And lastly for this set, a door hanging. Again made using printable fabric and sewn together.

As with the pillow, the printable fabric I used for the samples isn't waterproof BUT you can get waterproof fabric - I chose not to use it for these samples 

Last but not least is 'Prettiest Princess'

For the mask, I used a template from the Digikit, added a few embellishments and simply cut it out by hand.
I added some satin ribbons from my stash box. 
I wanted to use a handle for mine and not the elastic as suggested. I have a box load of unsharpened wooden pencil - perfick :-) Match a promarker pen up to one of the ribbons and coloured the pencil 

The cupcake toppers simply printed onto card stock and I used a Spellbinder die to cut them out

As I said, I also did a scrapbook layout of my great niece but forgot to grab a pic.
As and when I get it, I will add it to this post

Thank you for stopping by today xx
