Paper Makeup Digital Stamps!

Over at the new Digi Makeover Challenge Blog they are having a DT call. I have never been on a DT before but I am ready and I really want it!

So, they have some awesome freebies to work with (they also have a few good freebies hidden in their blog if you look for them!). All you have to do is go over and download them and then create a card, layout, or project with it.

They also want to know why you love digis. So, I love digis for SOOO many reasons! I love their flexibility.  If you go through my blog you will see that I use digis in so many different ways: small, large, portrait, background… and recently I cropped one image into little pieces and used them in an Inchie Arts inspired project. I also love the the instant gratification of buying digital.  Even if I don’t have the perfect image, I can think of a project and have an image to go along with it in minutes.  Lastly, I love digis because of their affordability.  I can get two or three digis for what I might pay for a rubber stamp and can do a lot of the same things. You can be a tool junkie, a technique freak, a C&S carmaker or a pile-it-on scrapbooker – no matter what, there is room in your crafty life for digis. If you have never tried a digital stamp you are missing out!

I got to use some sweet new supplies that I just bought recently at our brand new Joann’s – which is HUGE.  The pretty gathered teal fabric is from the sewing section and I LOVE it!  And, the little ledger at the bottom is punched with my new binding edge punch from EK Success.

Here is the card I made with the cute little monster (I love all PMS’ little monster digis!):
