Card Design: Pattie's Creations Challenge #183…Things That Fly

http://pattiescreationschallenge.blogspot.ca

Hello there folks! I hope that each of you is continuing to stay healthy in your own little corner of this world as we continue our battle with Covid-19. My region was in lockdown from March 19th Until just this week. Our numbers in Ontario have thankfully been starting to come down a little bit. While the stay at home order has been lifted, all the restrictions are still in place. In-class learning has been cancelled for the final weeks of the school year. For the sake of our vulnerable students everywhere, I really hope that by Sept. our schools at least can reopen. While staying positive can be difficult at times, I have to keep trying and hoping for even small changes.

I'm popping in today to announce the next challenge over at Pattie's Creations Design Challenge. This time around for Challenge #183, the theme is Things That Fly. I took the opportunity to make another birthday card. 
 
General Project Info:
  • This card has been created 100% digitally and then layered in a Mock Up (courtesy of Frisk Shop). It will be printed out and assembled prior to dissemination.


FRONT

Digital Image Details:
  • Honey Bees and Hive: You can find it in Pattie's Etsy shop by clicking on the image name. This image has been coloured digitally and paper pieced in one section. Credits include:
    • I used an existing branch texture to paper piece the branch. Original image created by Eva-Katerina (purchased via DealJumbo).
 
 
  Digital Embellishments:
  • The brads used on the front as accents are from my A Taste of Summer kit. The section can be purchased as part of the full kit. You can find it HERE
     
  • The divider across the middle was just made with a basic shape in Photoshop. I added a glitter layer style courtesy of Marisa Lerin, Pixel Scrapper. This same glitter style was also used on the matting.
 
 
 
 INSIDE  
 
Digital Image Details:
  • I isolated the bee images on their own from the Honey Bee and Hive image and saved them and then added two of them to the inside of the card. They look like they were made to go in those exact spots! 
 
 
Digital Sentiment Details: 
  • The sentiment used on the inside was created by Paulette from Create with TLC. For great freebies and inspiration be sure to click HERE to go to Paulette's blog and for awesome sets for purchase, click HERE to go to the home page of the store.

  
OVERALL
Digital Paper Products:
  • I used an existing digital paper and then added a clipart image of a bee repeating it in the paper. I also used the same gold glitter style on the bee. The clipart image is available in the paper set. The items used for the paper (used as the background on the front and inside) is from the Serenity Bee Digital Paper Kit created by Digital Curio. I picked it up as a limited time freebie over on Creative Fabrica. If you are interested in checking out the set or purchasing it you can find it HERE.
 
 
Digital Embellishment Details:
  • I have used basic shapes in Photoshop to create matting in behind the image (front) and sentiment (inside).
  • I have applied shadow layer styles to give certain elements some depth. These styles were designed by Sheila Reid, Pixel Scrapper.

Hello there folks! I hope that each of you is continuing to stay healthy in your own little corner of this world as we continue our battle with Covid-19. We've now been in lockdown in my region since March 19th and it doesn't seem like there is an end in sight. While many countries seem to be improving, Canada seems to be headed in the wrong direction. We were doing very well during the first year compared to many countries but since January, in certain provinces, things have gotten so much worse. I really hope there is a change soon.

I'm popping in today to announce the next challenge over at Pattie's Creations Design Challenge. This time around for Challenge #182, the theme is Anything Goes! Once again you can upload your projects with any kind of theme.

Happy Easter1!!! (& update on 12DoC papers)

Okay, so I'm starting to sound like a broken record. In the aftermath of dealing with some health and personal issues, I just haven't had the time to get the papers sent out to those who joined in for The 12 Days of Christmas. I will go through the rest of the comments and get the list compiled as soon as I am capable of doing so and I appreciate your continued patience.

Now for the other reason for today's post. To those of you who celebrate...
H A P P Y     E A S T E R!

For some of us in this world, we're in the exact same position as last year at this time; unfortunately, in a situation where we are forced to celebrate Easter a little bit differently than most of us normally would. Here in my home town, we've been in lockdown over two weeks again and with the numbers continuing to go up with all these variants, it is hard to say when it will end. If you yourself are in a location where meeting with those outside your home is also prohibited, I can certainly sympathize. Thankfully, with all the technology available these days, reaching out to our loved ones is easier than ever. I hope that you have the opportunity to connect virtually or by phone with those you love during this special long weekend.

Just like last year, since the Easter Bunny is considered an essential service, he will again receive special dispensation allowing him to cross borders and travel into each of the Canadian provinces--as long as he is supplied with the special equipment he needs to do his job safely. I hope that the Easter Bunny has received permission to travel to your part of the world as well.

Hopefully EB will have the opportunity to bring most of you some sweet treats or fragrant ones. My gift to you is this digital paper in honour of today…
 
https://app.box.com/s/qnrqnqveit6xs1vy0bqmqbwbzm3tditl

This digital paper is 3600 x 3600 pixels, in jpg format and published at 300 dpi. Credits include: Claudette Gallant (via Pixabay) and Marisa Lerin (via Pixel Scrapper). To grab it, click the download button to be taken to a download location. In the zip folder you will find a copy of the paper, its preview sheet, the credit information and my terms of use which are standard to all my folders.

I hope you all have a wonderful day! I'll be spending the rest of the day with my own amazing hubby who continues to have to go out every day and work since his job is considered essential as well!

Until next time,

Your continued patience is appreciated.

Happy St. Patrick's Day 2021!!! (& update on 12DoC papers)

Okay so first things first. I'm soooooooo sorry that I still don't have the papers sent out to those who joined in for The 12 Days of Christmas. Suffice it to say that things have been rather difficult in the last month. Between getting bad news that a close family member has cancer to dealing with a bacterial infection that really did a job on me, it hasn't been an easy time. I will go through the rest of the comments and get the list compiled as soon as I am capable of doing so and I appreciate your continued patience.

Now for the other reason for today's post. Happy St. Patrick's Day folks! Whether you are Irish or simply Irish at heart, for those of you out there who celebrate St. Patrick's Day, I have a brand new freebie for you in honour of the emerald isle.

I appreciate your patience. I promise I am trying to get to it!!!!

Time is Running Out to Complete The 12 Days of Christmas Quest for 2020!

 
 
Hello there folks. I hope that you are all doing well on this ninth day of the first month of the year! I am just popping in to remind you that you still have until the end of day on Tuesday (Jan. 12th) to get your TASKS submitted for this year's 12 Days of Christmas which officially ran from Dec. 25th to Jan. 5th. As that 12 day period was a busy time for people I extended the deadline date by a week.

While I haven't had a chance to tabulate all the comments to see how many people participated this year, I definitely saw some familiar faces play along and a couple new ones as well which was really great to see! Hopefully I can send out the papers by month's end. I still have 62 comments to go through (got through another 30 yesterday), and have to compile all the stats and gather the email addresses that I need as well. Thankfully, I did get all the info compiled for the master list of the credit info earlier today so the full kit has been put together, zipped and is ready to go. I promise to send out the papers and/or kit to those who participated during the quest, as soon as I can find the time to compile the rest of the info.

If you are just hearing about the quest and you want a chance to earn up to 12 digi papers, be sure to get your TASKS submitted by 11:59 p.m. EST, Jan 12, 2020. 
 
Here is a preview of the full set of papers:


Remember, you don't have to participate every day. If there is just one or two particular papers that you'd like, you only need to complete the tasks for those days. To see the specific digi paper up for grabs each of the 12 Days, and find out the other details you need to join the quest, you can click on the links below:

Until then, stay safe and happy crafting!

The 12 Days of Christmas Quest: Day Twelve

 
 
Well folks, the final day of Christmas is here! I really hope that you have enjoyed the quest during these last 12 days. Thanks to those of you who decided to play along this year! I plan to start sending out the papers to all the people who played this year, some time in the next week. Your patience, as always, is appreciated. And of course you still have a full week to get your TASKS completed and added so there is still lots of time to play.
 
If you missed day one click HERE to start from the beginning and read all the details. 
 
Day two: click HERE
Day three: click HERE 
Day four: click HERE

Day seven: click HERE
Day eight: click HERE
 Day nine: click HERE
Day ten: click HERE
Day eleven: click HERE 

As a quick refresher, each day during the 12 Days of Christmas (Dec. 25th to Jan. 5th), you're going to be given a task to follow. I'll be asking you questions to find out how the pandemic has impacted your life over the last year--how it has affected you, what things you've had to do differently, how you've had to adjust your life--that kind of idea. You will be able to leave your daily answer in a comment on the post for each respective day. If you follow the instructions for each day, you'll earn a free digital paper.

Since this is a busy time of year for most people, you will have plenty of time to complete the quest. It is completely up to you as to when you submit your answers (daily, all at once at the end, or otherwise). AS LONG AS ALL your TASKS are submitted, no later than January 12th, 2021, then you will qualify to receive the paper(s) for whichever day(s) you participate. 
 
Please note, that while some of you have kept up with your answers, you might not see the set for a few weeks. Unfortunately, I'm rather behind at the moment. I still have 72 comments to go through and copy and then still have to chart who participated on which particular day(s). While I have kept up with the individual credit information for each paper, I also now have to compile it all into one document for those that have earned the full set. All of this will take some time and I have to keep up with my regular duties at the same time. I promise to get the set or individual papers out to those who've earned them, as soon as I can possibly manage. I will post on my blog when I have done so just in case there are any issues with mail.

Here is the paper up for grabs today...
 
 
This paper is 3600 x 3600 pixels, in jpg format and published at 300 dpi. Credits include: Salted Galaxy and Julie Campbell Designs (both via DesignBundles). In the zip folder that will be emailed should you successfully complete the quest, you will find a copy of the paper, its preview sheet, the credit information and my terms of use which are standard to all my folders.

Play along each of the 12 days and you'll earn yourself the full set! So, how about we get started with today's clue!!!

On the twelfth day of Christmas,
it is time to earn your very last one.
I hope that the quest was worth it,
and if nothing else, you've had a little fun!!!


Task:
Today's task is different. I do really appreciate you playing along this year and painting a picture of how you've handled the past year along with sharing some of the lessons you've learned from your experience. Today however, as I traditionally ask on the last day of each quest, I want you to TELL ME THE NAMES OF YOUR THREE FAVOURITE DIGI PAPERS FROM THOSE PRESENTED DURING THE QUEST. You can click the links above to see each of the different papers offered if you need to refresh yourself as to what they look like. The names of each individual paper is located at the bottom of the white area on the preview images.

So, I'm obviously a bit biased on this one since I made them and they are ALL my babies! 😉 However if I have to choose, I will say that my favourite paper from this year is the A Bird's Christmas one that was offered up on Day 9. It is also the paper that took me the longest to create and at one point I wasn't sure I was ever going to get it completed. It took close to two hours just to come up with the layout of images that I was happy with. However, due to the number of elements involved (believe it or not there are a total of 18 separate images used), Photoshop kept giving me problems with 'scratch disk errors' (which have to do with the drive used for scratch disks being low or out of available space). Instead of grouping things and moving a whole row or more at a time like I typically do (to make sure everything is even), when it came to the last row of the paper, I had to move individual images two or three at a time. Well that took another two hours just to move one group! At that point I actually had to abandon the paper and come up with a different one in order to get one posted on time. That paper was originally intended for Day 7! Then, the next day I couldn't even open the paper so went with a different idea for Day 8 as well. Thankfully, I also have a design program called Affinity Photo that will open PSD files. It was my last chance to get the A Bird's Christmas paper finished. I wish I had thought of it sooner because it opened fine in that program and allowed me to move items as a group. I guess the fact that I put so much time and energy into the paper is the real reason it is my favourite. Up until Day 7 I had been about two days ahead but due to that one paper taking so long I ended up getting behind. For the other two I'll say the Jolly Elf paper from Day 1 (I just adore that image) and the Joyful Gingerbread paper (he really puts a smile on my face). Once again I managed to find some fun and unique images in my collection this year and hope that you all like what I've come up with!

When you come up with a response for today's task letting me know your THREE FAVOURITE DIGI PAPERS FROM THIS YEAR'S QUEST, simply leave your choices in a comment on THIS POST. Now for many of you, especially those who have played in previous years, the odds are that I should have your e-mail address in order to send out the free paper you earn. If you are new to the quest or are not sure whether I might have your email address, please be sure to also leave your email address in your comment. If you would prefer to keep your address private, then check out the bottom paragraph from Day 1 for how to send it to me.

Thank you again to those individuals who joined in the quest these past twelve days. Please be sure to follow me so you don't miss any future freebies! You never know when the next one will be offered!

Cheers and best wishes for the year ahead!

On the eleventh day of Christmas,
it is time to earn paper number eleven.
It is a very well know fact that, all good designers
 and card makers go to heaven!!!
 
Task:
It’s fair to say that 2020 was a year like no other for the world. However, among all the challenges we faced, there were also things worth celebrating. What is ONE celebration from 2020 that is worthy of remembering?
 
For myself, the one celebration worthy of remembering was my hubby's 70th birthday. It was in April so the big dinner event we were trying to plan went out the door. Hubby is one of those people that if you can't have a party on the actual day, then he doesn't want one at all. Thus, I was left with trying to figure out how to make the day special when we were in the middle of a lock-down. Thankfully, my best friend was available to help out. She made a birthday cake for him and also picked up a 70th birthday banner and some balloons that I put up while he was at work. I was lucky that she had a connection with a local dollar store owner who was willing to open up and do a curbside sale. I also reached out to all of hubby's siblings and asked them to call him on his special milestone birthday. Afterwards, he told me that his day was even more special than if he'd been able to go out and spend the evening at a restaurant with his family members. Thus, it was definitely a highlight from 2020!
