Digital Heaven

Have you been to Two Peas in a Bucket  recently? WOW! They have got a ton of cool new products including over 75 new digital kits! Did I say WOW?! Okay, so you don't do digital. Why not? I'm not a digital person as far as end results go. I like putting things together with my own two hands and having texture and goodies on my projects. But digital is allowing me to have more accents and papers without taking up more space! I can print out just the papers and accents I need  for a project and that's so cool!

Anyway, let me share a couple hybrid cards I made last night using digital kits. These two cards are some of my favorites I've made lately, and guess what? They were quicker and easier than anything I've made in a while! This kit is perfect for those of you who have very little time to devote to crafting.


Isn't this card lovely?!?! All I had to do was make a pink card stock base. EASY! Print out this pretty design from a digital kit called Romance Me Elements 02 by Vinnie Pearce. EASY! Then I added the sentiment with chipboard letters and a felt flower and gems. Super EASY! I should keep my Staples 'Easy' button on my desk to punch every time I so something so easy my kid could do it! :)


Here's the second card. Another EASY one! For this hybrid card I used digital kit ATC Card Elements also by Vinnie Pearce. What's funny about this kit is that I've never made an ATC card, but that doesn't matter because this kit is PERFECT for greeting cards!

Now for something yummy! Next to crafting, I love to eat delicious food so it's no surprise I stop by my favorite food blog 'Delicious' for the latest recipes. Even though this sandwich sounds a bit odd, it's absolutely heavenly! It's a grilled Peanut Butter & Banana Sandwich!!!! Can you say Y U M M Y?!?!


This sandwich is so simple to make, just like a grilled cheese! You can probably figure out what to put on this sandwich, but if you would like the step-by-step directions, just click on word 'Delicious' above and you will be directed to the recipe. I added one more ingredient to this heavenly dish....cinnamon. And if you care to add insult to injury, eat it like a French dip, but use maple syrup! :)

Okay, one last item I'd like to shout from my roof top because I'm so very excited about this opportunity! I've been working on a new project lately that includes drawing. I'm drawing digital stamps that will sell at Two Peas in a Bucket! How exciting is that!?!?! So exciting that one minute I'm on cloud nine and the next minute I'm a bundle of nerves! It's been a wonderfully emotional roller coaster! I'll let you know on my blog when the first stamps will be released, and if you're into the digital stamping/card making sort of thing, I'd love it if you would buy some and have fun playing! And guess what? They will sell for just .99 cents! Whoa! Can't beat that price, can you?

Off to the drawing board I go! Thanks for visiting my blog! Oh, and guess what? We're supposed to get some snow tonight!!!! Have I mentioned that I'm so ready for spring? I'm thinking of doing a scrapbook page of me shoveling snow with thought bubbles above my head of spring dreams! Hope to see you back on Friday. I'm not sure what I'll have to share with you at the moment, but I can promise it'll be something fun and crafty! :)

I found your blog from Two Peas after you commented on one of my scrapbook pages. Thanks for the sweet comment, by the way. Your cards are lovely! I haven't done much in the way of digital yet, but I keep seeing these cute digital cards and I know it won't be long until I cave! Love your blog. You've got a lot of talent!

Those cards are super cute, Kathy! Really, really like the collage look to both. And I'm SO happy for you with the digital stamp opportunity you have. Can't wait to see your first round of fabulous goodies!

I always love your cards!, but the grilled sandwich is too good. My mom used to make those for us when I was little. Everyone thought peanut butter and bananas, you're crazy, but they are good! Happy day to you.

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.

Thanks
