Challenge 12 – ‘Using Digi Papers’
This fortnight we have the fantastic Cupcake Cards & Crafts ‘Digital Downloads’ as a sponsor
How to play:
You must use digi papers somewhere in your craft item
Any papercraft item is allowed but it must use digital papers AND as usual you must also use a digital image (it doesn't have to be a 'Bee Crafty' image, but I hope you'll be tempted to use my images!) Submit by Saturday 12th September (Midday UK) by posting on your blog and commenting below. The extra PRIZE this fortnight is some digi papers from Cupcake Cards & Crafts as well as one of Bee Craftys downloads! (See full rules to the right.)

The Bee Crafty Design Team have been lucky enough to use papers from Cupcake Cards & Craft this fortnight in addition to Bee Crafty images. Some of the DT had lots of prior experience using digi papers whilst others had none. Check out their great creations….

Guest Designer Sheri with her beautiful card using ‘Scribbles Digital Designers Mini Sets – Candy’ & ‘Whimsical Girl’

Christine’s delicate, pretty layered card using ‘My Lazy Sunday Digital Papers’ & ‘Fairy Angel Floating’

Dei’s charming card using ‘Scribbles Digital Designers Mini Sets – Olive’ & ‘Whimsical Girl Butterfly Catcher’

Lori created this stylish card using the ‘Doodle Dots Collection’ & ‘Seated Boy’

Kim’s bright, summery card uses ‘For the Colours of Life' & ‘Whimsical Girl Butterfly Catcher’

Sue’s bright, fun card uses ‘I Love Candy, The Papers’ & ‘Fluffy Bunny Pair’

Trixi has created a pretty calendar using ‘Doodle Dots Collection’ & ‘Whimsical Girl and Bird’

Here are a few great reasons to use digi papers;
# They are economical, once bought you can print as many times as you like
# You can resize papers and print the exact size you need to save waste
# You can modify areas to suit your design e.g., block off sections where a layer will be using ‘MS Word’
# They're always in stock and take up no room…great for last minute cards!
# If you have Photoshop or similar you can insert the patterns into images, ‘virtual paper piecing’
Also you can select the colours from the digi papers and insert them into an image so your creations have a great colour match
# You can alter the thickness / thinness to suit your project by printing on different paper / card

Winner of Challenge 11 is… Larissa and her gorgeous card (are you seeing spots!)
