Saturdays with Jen: Digicards

Hi again, Jen here. Made it to another Saturday, one of my favorite days of the week! Did you see all of the awesome stuff flying around here this week? There were coupons and crafts, tips and layouts galore. It's been a pretty fun week at Danimoy Designs if I do say so myself. I've really enjoyed visiting the blog each day to see what the blog girls have up. Did you try out that gift card hybrid tag from Laina? Cute, right? Anyhow, today is the second in my blog series, digicards. For this (every 2nd and 4th Saturday), I'll use one of Dani's kits to make a card digitally. Typically, I'll make a card and then print it out to give, but I'm working on a tutorial for how to send a card that will open digitally. I haven't quite gotten there yet, but when I do, I'll let you know. Now, on to my first card.

Today I'm going back in time a bit, using a really unique kit of Dani's called Don't String Me Along. Have you seen this one?

How cute, am I right?

First things first, you need to choose a template. There are a number of ways to do this, but for today, we'll go with a very simple 4-fold. Start by creating an 8.5x11 canvas and place your squares as follows (I like to add squares of different colors so that I can see where my boundaries are. You can skip this if you prefer to just use the ruler to judge). Note that the top two panels need to be upside down in order to print properly.

Once you've got it setup, design away. Using Don't String Me Along, here is what I came up with. I'll show you page by page.

What a beautiful kit, isn't it? Well, that's all for today. You can find Don't String Me Along at Gotta Pixel. Hope you'll find time to make a digicard for someone sew special in your life too. See you next week!
