Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

My First DT project for Digi Choosday!

That's right folks, I've been accepted onto the Digi Choosday DT and I'm thrilled to bits. As many of you know, I often use digital images, from images I colour to embellishments & papers that I coordinate to match my coloured images. 

The challenge is a weekly event that will occur on the Polkadoodles challenge blog and I can tell you there are many a fab product to share and a very talented DT to showcase them!

Right so today is the first challenge so pop over to the Digi Choosday post to see what it's all about and to join in. 

Here's my project - 

I decided to make a gift card to allow me to send a book voucher/card as a present, and as soon as I saw Emma Canning's Bookworm image I knew I had to use it. I also chose elements from the Love Will Flourish digi collection even though it says it's geared towards wedding stationery.  The papers and embellishments are so suitable for many an idea so it's always worth looking beyond the collection title as I'm sure you can always re-colour to suit or even use sections of the elements.

I took all of the images into Serif Craft Artist to create the main topper & bookmark. I matted & layered both onto coordinating card  before creating a simple pocket for the gift card/voucher to slot into along with a matching bookmark.

I printed the image separately and coloured her with a mix of markers including the fabulous Graph It markers.

Here's some close-ups of the project - 

Here you can see the card without the bookmark and gift card.  I deliberately didn't add a birthday sentiment or any other so that it can be used for any event.

Well I hope you like my first Digi Choosday DT project and I do hope you'll join us with your own creations. So pop back every Tues to see what I've been up to!

Take care Zo xx
