More Paper Boutique 3......

More samples from the fabulous new Paper Boutique 3, creative templates from Polkadoodles. For this one I used the robot - can robots be cute? I think this one is. The gears were cut from the Robotz cricut cartridge, and I typed the sentiment onto one of the labels on the Sundae of Seasons CD. The gingham paper is from that CD as well
Debra asked about printing digi paper and ink. Obviously you use some of your ink cartridge when you print, but as an example I have a HP C4200 series photosmart printer. I put in new cartridges last week, and printed off forty sheets of images and papers. My cartridges are still showing as half full.
Another query about colouring digi images with alcohol markers, and smearing. I have never had this problem, I guess it depends on the type of ink. If you do have a problem, dump clear embossing powder onto your image as soon as you print it - the ink stays wet enough for you to do that, then heat emboss it. I sometimes do that anyway, I like the effect of the embossed detail


Here's the hippo from the Cd, I added lots of blue raindrops for bubbles. Don't you love the sentiment that Nikky came up with. I love a play on words.......


I am very, very busy getting ready for a BIG blog party on here starting on Wednesday. There will be some fabulous prizes to be won, fun competitions every day for a week. Dig out your party clothes, blow up some balloons and get ready to party

  1. I'm not even into robots, but this one really IS cute. And I love the "get into gear for the year" sentiment. Your cards are wonderful, as always, Enfys.

  10. Enfys, my favorite is the hippo. This looks like a great cd. I'll have to check it out. Do you have problems with the colors of the paper being close to what you see on screen? I also hesitate to print digital paper because I'm not sure if it will eat up my ink. Hugs, Debra

  18. Aww I think these are both cute and the sentiments are great too.
    As for printing digi images I use a cheap Epson printer with cheap compatible inks and have still never had a problem with bleeding that's using Promarkers anyway.
