Little Bits of Love: Part One


[ supplies : Little Yellow Bicycle Patterned Paper, Ali Edwards Love Circle Embellishments, Foam Squares, Marvy Uchida Mega Scallop Punch, Bazzill Cardstock ]

A super simple Valentine card using a sheet of cardstock (folded + then corner-rounded), a punched piece of patterned paper (using a scalloped punch - see below for more info), foam squares, and a printed out circle from my new set of Love Circle embellishments for Designer Digitals.

One of the cool things about this product is that it includes digital files (.png in the color scheme shown + files that can be colored and layered) and a pdf file that is all set up and ready for you to print onto cardstock or canvas and punch. It's just right for those of you who have not dabbled in digital scrapbooking yet but may be interested in doing a little bit of hybrid-scrapbooking (using digital products in paper scrapbooking by simply printing them out at home).

Edited: Regarding a question in the comments you can definitely still download these elements without Photoshop. You can open the PDF in any program that opens pdf's and the .png files can be opened and printed in word.

Think about using them for cards or gift tags or for a little minibook. Here's a look at how I punched out the circles from the downloadable pdf file:

The circles measure 2 inches across and can be punched with anything larger. For the scalloped edges I used the Marvy Uchida Mega Scallop Punch (pink body). I also used a McGill 2 1/8 inch circle punch which gave me the white circles around the outside. TIP: turn the punch upside down to be able to see exactly what you are punching out.

Look for a little minibook coming later this week using these circles as well.
