After stalking crafting blogs for a looooong time, Leah Fung’s blog, Leah’s Desktop Dictionary, has prompted me to start my very own crafty blog by hosting a contest for an Epson PictureMate. Thanks Leah, Donna & Johanna! Now, instead of hoarding crafty stuff, I will have to use them so I can have things to post!
Here’s my first project! The contest is to go to Epson Creative Zone, download and complete a project. I used projects #277 & #203a along with FREE digital designer papers from Demi Design by Rebecca Oehlers (download these gorgeous papers for free here!) to create this elegant birthday set:
The set includes a gift bag, tag & card. I used photoshop to insert the designer papers into the templates, in some cases pasting over the original design so I can make the matching set.
Here is a closeup of the bag:

Matching tags (excuse the ugliness of the eyelets…still getting used to the crop-a-dile):
And another tag using some different papers from Rebecca Oehlers:
Stay tuned to see if I win! The drawing is on Monday, August 11th.
