PMS blog hop and a mojo challenge!

>> Tuesday, July 7, 2009

Hello!  It's time for the PMS blog hop!  The release is tonight at 9pm and i am so silly excited about it!

Now if you're hopping here from Dawn Wheeler's blog... you're right on track!  If not... you need to start back at the beginning!  I wouldnt want you to miss out on all the new release fun, prizes or the discount code!  :)

I'll spare you my whole reasoning on why you may like digi since i wrote it all out on the PMS blog too!  :)  And we'll just get straight down to business with the blog hop!

I have a few different projects for you, all to show you the different fun ways to use digis!

My first card, if my favorite way to use word art digis!  A nice solid print, and using it as a main focus.  I am hopefully in love with quotes, so being able to really give them attention is a great fun thing for me!  I printed this quote onto Neenah cardstock, cut it out with my nestabilties die and then airbrushed over it for affect.  The layout is based on this weeks Mojo Monday sketch.


I love this paper line by scribble scrabble!  Their paper is nice an thick, and super cute designs on either side!  This particular collection is called Felicity.  But it looks like all of their lines are über cute.  Now if only i could remember where i bought this!!!!!  Because i can tell i'm gonna need more!

My 2nd card is my next most common way to use word art.  Just as a sentiment to go along perfect with an image.  So this is nice when you can scale down the size so it prints small to not take away the focus from your image!  This card was actually also made with my friend Kim, in mind.  She just became a gramma for the first time and I've been wanting to get a card out to her.  You truly never can understand this sentiment until you have a child or some small being you call your own (furbabies can count).  The mass of love in my heart for my children is so large i feel like my heart will burst just thinking about it!    But this sentiment would also work great for a thank you card!  Think of those little things people do for you that mean so much!

read below in "the deets" for all the nitty gritty.

And last but not least... this is a new way of using a word art digi but oh my gosh can i tell i'll do this more!  Now you rarely, if EVER, buy a quote stamp thats larger than a background stamp right?  I mean, would you have enough use for a quote stamp that large?  Well, with digis you can make it that large if you need!  Enlarging the quote to such a size would also work great on a scrapbook layout.  This helps to make quick gifts too!

Now if you dont care about the nitty gritty details, thats ok, but you need to scroll down to the bottom of the post to see how you can enter to win these digi images, to get your letter for your 15% off coupon code and to see who you hop to next!
