Digi Tip and You’ve Got Mail

MHere’s my digi, or printing in general, tip. Always leave an 1/8″ space around your image/layout you want to print. If not you’ll end up with a chopped off text (like the LO I did on the right). I forgot this rule when I printed mine through WHCC and guess what.. uh uh, I need to resubmit. URGH!!!! It’s been awhile since I printed anything. I have printed out any of my digi LO or printed any printed materials (brochures/flier) for work and just spaced it. I’m not sure if every printer is like this, I know whcc is (obviously) and my work’s (professional) printing dept. too. But just in case, don’t forget! I usually put a guideline around my LO before going at it but I just forget. So now there are a few LO that I need to go through, for example the baby thumbsucker one. I know the journaling is really close to the bottom of that page. Ok, digi video tomorrow. Stay tune!

Altered mailboxesSo here are my all completed altered mailbox for M’s birthday. I don’t usually praise myself but aren’t they super cute? I love how the turned out. My first one was ok. I like it but I think the two color paper made the difference.

Info: Ribbons were remnents from different projects. The solid pink one is SU’s. The stamp set is Riveting and I used my floral punch, I think EK’s, and SU scallop. The paper is a package from K&Company bought 2 years ago.  If you go to my flickr site, you can see more pics. I love them!! I hope the girls will love their goodie box — if not — ahhh… children. Maybe their mommies will love them {::SMILES}.

Blog candy. I want to have one. So keep an eye out for it. I’ll have two giveaways… an either or since I have digi folks and paper crafters visiting. One will be a store credit to a digistore of choice and the other will be some craft goodies that I’ll be gathering. The occassion? Hmmm dunno.

  1. Great SB layout! I wish I digi scrapped. I might actually get some pages done. LOL
    The mailboxes turned out wonderful! I can just hear the girls ooing and ahhing over them already!

  2. your mail boxes turned out incredible! almost too cute to give to little girls who won’t appreciate them! wish i had the time (no, what i really want is the patience!) to do 5 of those and have them turn out half as great as yours did!
