Crafty Secrets DT Challenge, Tutorial and Linky Party

I am so excited and honored to be asked to join Crafty Secrets Design Team! 

(No, it isn't a April Fools joke either!)

The DT Challenge this month is sewing.  I love the beautiful sewing images from Crafty Secrets.  It reminds me of my sweet Mom's sewing room.  I love hearing her sewing machine hum and then seeing all of the beautiful creations that she makes for her whole family.

These images are so easy to use to create digital hybrid creations.

I have included an easy tutorial below using PhotoShop.  I am not an expert by any means, but I hope these easy steps will help you on your way to creating beautiful digital creations.

By opening your digital files you can drag, drop and resize your images.  

Just remember that anytime you don't like how it looks the Undo Button at the top right of your screen is your friend.

You can layer and add as many images as you want.   Unlike traditional stamps that you create only the sized image that the stamp is, digital stamps can be used multiple times and at variety of different sizes.
Once you have the image the way that you like, you can then select print and print your files.

Once the images are printed, you can use them just like traditional scrapbooking products.  You can ink, sew on them, add glitter and create until your hearts content.

Head on over to the Heartwarming Vintage Blog to check out the Link Party...  we would love to have you join in!  All you have to do is create something with any Crafty Secrets product and link up on the Heartwarming Vintage Blog!

Now... see what these talented Crafty Secrets Design Team Members have posted for you on their blogs for the challenge.

Wishing you all a creative day, dear friends.

Lovely! I've never done much digital imaging at all. Need to get all my paper crafting supplies in one place so I can easily make something when the mood strikes me. Have a great week. Tammy
