Using a Craft CD






Welcome to our second Challenge at Back to Basics and Beyond, our challenge today is to use a Craft CD, I have several CD's which I turn to regularly, they offer a huge choice of images and papers. I have used Joanna Sheen's House Mouse CD 's in this post. The sentiments are from TLC

You can use the images in different ways, simply print off the page as it appears on the CD example below,or select a single image from the sheet, import it into your photo editing or graphics programme and use it from there, I often resize the images and add sentiments to them before I print them. I have shown a couple of examples of cards, some with backing papers and smaller images, others where the image is much larger.



 as page appears on Cd 




another example demonstrating the different looks you can achieve  










I hope you will join in with us , and look forward to seeing your cards.
