Good afternoon everyone. I've been playing on my computer making a new watermark for my photos on Photoshop. According to SU every picture of every card/layout/project that uses their products must have their name and copyright on it.
If you're unsure how to make a watermark - I'm happy to do one for you, you do need Photoshop (any version). Just email me email@example.com
Here's mine, the pink is just the background so you can see the lettering. Once you've got the image, open both the image and the photo you want to add the watermark to. Right click the watermark layer in the layers panel and choose 'duplicate' then choose the image you wish to duplicate it onto. Any questions just let me know.

I had to have a go at this card, it's such a cute fold and I'll definitely be using it again! To see it open visit my blog Made By Me.
Also you have until 7pm tomorrow night to leave your comments. Then Bella will be drawing a name for the blog candy. (7pm is her bedtime.)

Everytime I visit Amy's blog I'm amazed. Her cards have really stepped up over the last few months and they're stunning! I'm sure you'll agree. I asked Amy a few questions -
What's your favourite techniques to use when stamping?
My favourite technique is paper tolling, I like to look at the stamped image and see if I can try and add some dimension to the card.
How long have you been a demo and what advice do you have for new demos?
I have been a demo now for 11 months and my best advice is do not sign up when you are already addicted to stamping, my business doesn't make any money because I spend it all on SU products (LOL). Same here.
When you're not busy stamping and being a mum what else do you do in your spare time?
Gardening, I love my roses and I am currently nagging my husband to finish my vegetable garden.
What are you hoping will be in the new catalogue?
Lots of gorgeous new ribbons and flower build a brads.

I was supposed to post these a couple of days ago, but time just got away from me and the weather has been too lovely to sit in front of the computer. Sorry.
So here's Katrina's entrys. She's been busy and made not just one but two cards. And both of them are great. Check out Katrina's blog KatScraps.

Kim has made this very cute card for the challenge. Visit her blog to see her great calendar as well. Inkin Fun
I love the colours Kim's used and she's done some beautiful water colouring.
This isn't an official entry into the January Challenge but since it uses a SAB set and it's a great idea I thought it deserved to be posted. Jacqui altered a hodgepodge tin and it's come out fantastic! To get a glimpse of what she's filled it with visit her blog Stamp Happy. Jacqui's also got a great video tutorial on colouring the flowers from the pretties kit.

Thank Goodness for Tracy Jackson!!!!! Not only is she my fab upline but she is also the only one that has done my challenge, and she used Trudi's sketch too. So you can all admire her card in all it's loveliness until you do you own and get them put on here. Hmmmmm maybe if I changed my name to Kristina Werner I would get more people participating.

We all need a little help to get started sometimes and one of the best things I've found is sketch challenges (after blog hopping of course). Makeesha an Aussie demo is running a sketch challenge at the moment, so I thought I'd share it with you as well.
How about using the sketch for Louise's January Challenge as well....

Happy New Year Everyone!
We are officially one year old as of 26th December 08! I can't believe we started off with about 6 blogs and now we're up to 40.
Thank you to everyone who has shared their creations, ideas, thoughts and a little bit of their lives with us over the past year. And thank you to everyone who has participated in challenges. I've met many wonderful ladies via emails and comments.
I'm looking forward to a new year filled with more cards and projects and am hoping to finally catch up with my scrapbooking - especially as that is what I originally started out doing. And also seeing what everyone else puts their talents to.
Thank you for sharing with us and I hope that your year is filled with happiness and blessings and the only challenges you face are colour ones.
