January 2013 Creative Cards

Hi Everyone! I've been at CHA the last few days buying all kinds of new product for kits this coming year and I can't wait to share it with all of you. I love the start of a fresh new year and the chance to set new goals. As with every year I have a few things i'd like to add and change to my kits. I'm always looking for ways to improve. One of the first things i've been working on is upgrading the quality of the color copies that are provided in the kits. I've struggled with the fact that some colors just don't copy well. It's a process but underway. So be watching for that sometime in the next couple months and i'll keep you up to date what will be up next.

Following are some tips and tricks to completing your cards for this month. I hope you enjoy them. And let me know if you have any questions.

These photos are pretty close up and you can see that I added ink to several edges of different elements. I used a dark grey ink. You can use ink in areas that you choose :) I also added pen details that you can add as well.
