The Essential Bagpuss Digikit Collection

Exciting news Join Michelle Jackson-Mogford from 9am Saturday 26th July for the exclusive launch on Create & Craft TV!

This collection brings back wonderful memories from Childhood of Bagpuss and the loveable characters depicted in the show. It is so exciting that they are available from Serif in Digikit format and with the range of papers, frames, elements etc you can create some super projects. Below are some cards and crafts I created using the collection in Craft Artist 2 Software.

The beautiful papers and accessorised elements compliment each other and are great for a large variety of occasions, fun for both children and adults.
Weddings, Anniversaries etc...
Pop a magnet on the back and you can create a Beautiful note holder to pop on the fridge. Papers from the kit printed and cut to size held with mini pegs and some sturdy card used to make the holder.
Oh so cute Christmas cards with a lovely Nostalgic feel.
Beautiful Scrap pages, using the papers... You can crop them to shape in Craft Artist 2 and add additional detail to your layouts. Use the brush tools too and have so much fun.
Yummy Treat Holders & Gifts created using a template from Craft Artist 2.
Cards for Occasions, such as Get Well 
This was created using one of the digital stamps in the Toolkit.  Once printed I painted it with crystal glitter gel first then once dry, coloured in using glitter gel pens.

Seal Snuggles

I was looking through some of my photos today and came across a lovely one which just cried out Scrap me but keep the focus on the photograph. So using a Digital Scrapbooking kit of mine called 'Oceana' I created a simple layout clustering a few elements and blending some including the lighthouse from the kit. I finished the layout by overlaying a paper which I coloured light blue and applied a hue blend to. Here are the delightful Snuggly pair who look so content and happy. Hope they make you smile x

The kit used is called Oceana and is currently on promotion in store, along with some other offers too.

St Crispins Summer Fayre - Sunday 20th July 2014

Hi Everyone, I have been a little elusive in the Digital World these past weeks. Many reasons have led to this including working full time in my new job, nearly three months now. Getting creative with lots of Exciting new Product samples for Serif Daisytrail and also preparing for my very First Craft Fayre which is this Sunday 20th July on my Birthday. I have butterflies just thinking about it as have always wanted to take the leap and try new things. So with pamphlets created explaining what Algera Designs is all about reference my Digikit Designs, Cards crafted ready for customers to browse through and all the little touches that go with the table like constructing display boxes etc... I feel almost ready. 

Here's the poster of the Event, the organiser Cerys has put such a lot of work into organising the day including marketing and ensuring a Gorgeous mix of Creative and Beautiful products will be on show to browse and purchase. There is going to be a chocolate fountain , Pony rides, Readings and so much more besides

Looking forward to meeting everyone
