Challenge Inspiration & DT Call Reminder



It's week 3 of the December Digi of the Month Challenge, and we've already received a lot of fabulous entries! Thank you very much to everyone who has joined us so far this month. For those who haven't played along yet, there is still plenty of time. If you're not sure how to join in, visit this post for details, or click on the "Challenges" button at the top of the page.

Here's a little fresh inspiration for those who haven't decided how to use their "Gingerbread Train" set. This card was made by designer NanaConnie using the precolored engine from the set. Isn't it fun how she cut the greeting out to resemble a puff from the smokestack? :-)

I also wanted to remind everyone that we have a DT Call going right now. We're looking for six designers to join our team starting mid-January. If you're interested, please visit this page or click the "DT Call" button at the top of the page for details.

7 Days Until Christmas!



I looked at the calendar this morning and realized that there are only seven days until Christmas. Wow! Are you ready? As so often happens, I find myself scrambling again to get those last few cards made and mailed, not to mention all the baking still to do. Every year I tell myself I'll do better, but every year it's the same story. Ah well!

For those still looking for Christmas inspiration (me!), we have a few cards to share with you today. This first beauty was made by designer Lori Finch, using the Christmas Cardinal set. Don't those lovely, nature-inspired papers make the perfect background for this?



Here's a real cutie by designer Paula Bloom, made with the Country Christmas set. The flower and swirly gem accents make this merry and bright!



This one was made with the "Beauty of the Season" set. I layered the sentiment inside the wreath in Word before printing, and kept the overall design clean and simple, with just a little glitter added to the poinsettia centers.

Remember, if you are needing digis for your last-minute Christmas projects, we have lots to choose from in our shop. And with our new instant download feature, you can get them right away and get to work! ;-)

New Digis & Fun Changes at the Shop!

Good morning! I hope your weekend wasn't too hectic. Things can sure get a little "hairy" this time of year, can't they?

Today I wanted to share with you that the upgrade at the shop is finally finished, thanks to the tireless work of Diane Noble and her son. We have a slightly different look, and you can now view digis by category instead of having to look at them all en masse. Best of all, we now offer instant downloads! No more waiting for your purchases to be emailed to you -- hooray! :-)

I also wanted to let you know that we have a few new digis in the shop today. Here's a peek at them.
