Twilight Paper Bag Album

I finally finished the Twilight Paper Bag Album.  You can purchase it from me at my Etsy Store.

This scrapbook measures approximately 6x6 and has 10 Pages along with 3 double sided inserts. That makes 16 pages! I left room on some pages for you to place tickets, photos or journaling of your own.

I had a blast creating this scrapbook because I'm the biggest Twilight fan (no really, I am)! The photo collage has pictures of all the pages.

There is one "interactive" page too. It's the one that has the little square that says "Do I Dazzle You?". Since Edward is so sparkly I wanted something that would have sparkles on him. So shake it and he sparkles with the glitter in the shaker box!

AiFactory Challenge 43 ~ Green With Envy

This week at the AiFactory challenge we would were challenged to make something green. 

Not green in color, but to create a card or project showing how you can recycle, upcycle or reuse something.

Our design team got to play with Mia's collection of summer fun digital stamps!

I created a pool party invitation digitally as to cut down on the use of paper elements and such and then used bubble wrap as my "water" on my invitation.
The digital stamps we used were too cute! 
Here's what they all look like and you can find them at the AiFactory store:

So go visit the challenge blog to enter your card or project and to also visit the other design team members blogs for inspiration. 
We have a new community at AiFactory to hang out and visit.  Go join us for some fun!

July 2010 Artist Of The Month




This month I wanted to showcase Anja!  She designs digital embroidery images and she has illustrated numerous books.  Read her biography below:

"Ever since I was a little girl growing up in lovely northern Germany I've had a passion for painting and crafts. I have followed my childhood dreams to become a certified goldsmith and to receive a degree in arts and design. For the past 20 years, I have been doing what I love most - working as an illustrator. I have illustrated lots of books – many of which have been published in different languages and turned into animated cartoons for TV.

Together with my friend Sonja, I have taken my passion a step further – since 2009, my designs are available as digital images for machine embroidery, hand stitching patterns, ribbons and fabrics. You can find all these designs here on my website: Anja Rieger Design

Not only am I coming up with the designs, I also digitize to maintain the vitality of my drawings. I have taught myself the technique of digitizing - in endless days and nights and a long series of trials and errors and almost never ending test stitchings. While drawing, I already think about how I can turn the illustration in a proper digital image. That way I can ensure the vitality of my sketches and drawings will survive in my embroidery designs.

To find out more about my illustrations, please check out Anja Rieger I have also become an avid blog writer. On Anja Rieger blogspot I share techniques and materials for crafts, artefacts and other things I am interested in. Please stop by – I'd love to hear your comments on my posts."
So if you're an embroider visit Anja for your one stop shop an all the patterns you need.  Thanks Anja for your great work!
