Traveling and digital printing tips

This week Steve and I are headed to his home town, Clinton NY. We'll be there with family and friends for the week!  We've been looking for to this trip and an entire week off. Young Steve  is home working,so he holds the fort down and we are fancy free!!

Before we leave early today I wanted to share a few cards I made for Karen Murray over at papercraftmemories.com.  Karen is a wonderfully talented digital artist.  A super busy home schooling mom of 6 and active church member.  We share a love for the word of God!  Here are a few cards I made for her Esty shop samples!

For Christmas:




When making samples you have to keep things focused on what you are sampling.  In this case it is the scripture and the sentiments more than stamping.  I enjoy making verses the focal point using beautiful papers, and I am more and more using digital.
A few more for friendship verses:
 





 
I highly recommend you visiting Karens Etsy shop, her images a perfect and they are very cost economical.
 
When using digitals I have found that if I turn my printer on black and white only I get a superb crisp image. Supposedly it will not make a difference, but it does.
I purchase my ink for my HP deskjet 920c (found on the tree belt, cleaned it up and has worked perfectly for 3 years) on the web at various sites and usually pay about 16.00 for three black in cartridges!!!!
you can also go to Word Art Weds Blog for free scripture verses by Karen and a ton of great ideas!
 
Thanks for stopping by!
