Christmas in July Blog Contest

My NEW KIT shown is available at my ETSY store: LINK TO STORE and will soon be available at Aimee Asher as well.  Click on pictures to go to the store or the link.  There are 1 x 1″ squares, 1 x 2″ dominoes in collages there to match as well as lots of other new art sets.  Much, much more to come!  On the left side panel of this blog is a link to the store that will be active at all times if you forget how to get there 🙂

My long time readers know that I used to do a monthy drawing for a FREE kit for the people that left comments.  Leaving a comment on a post was an entry into the contest.  It fell off because I simply wasn’t posting enough at the time so it made it difficult to justify having a contest.  However, since I have become a regular at posting again, I have decided to revive that Contest again.  I really enjoyed the feedback and the daily chatting!

Soooo…. this month’s prize will be “AJR-ETSY-DC010-ATC” Christmas, Love, Joy, Peace; is an elegantly collaged art collection of Christmas Trees, snow covered trees, red snowflakes, beautiful word art, swirls, texture and line art.

This digital collage sheet, has 9, rounded corner rectangular step shaped tag backgrounds on a sheet. All the art used on these digital 8.5 x 11 collage sheet was hand painted in watercolors, scanned on a high quality Epson 10000 and then digitally designed with the addition of some original art brushes.

Use for ATC cards, card making, package tags, scrapbooking, magnets, stickers and more! Sent as a png file. Open with your graphics program and add text or monograms if you wish, then print out. I have intentionally left spaces for working for you. If you cannot use png files, simply message that you would prefer jpeg or pdf.

The 9 tags are $4.95 and all of the new kits like this are being sold with slightly different ANGEL POLICY terms than I have been.  They are sold with no limit on crafting uses in a year.  Keeping track of how much you are doing with which kits is a burden, these kits don’t require you to make a limited amount.  If something turns out to be a best seller for you, go to it with my blessings!  Every little bit can help a family in these hard times.  The old terms still apply to my standard sets, you will need to look at the TOUs (which are included in every kit) to determine which they fall under.

I have been making jewelry making kits of dominioes, 1″ x 1″ squares, I’ll be doing some circles of various sizes soon.  It’s been a lot of fun envisioning new uses for my art.  Please leave me some suggestions in the comments as to what else you might like to see — and earn a spot in the monthly drawing as you do!  If any of you make glass pendant jewelry would you please private message me?

Have a great weekend and be sure to read the post below about Amanda Curtin.  A card designer and demonstrator for my cardcrafting products licensee, DO Crafts in the United Kingdom.

Featured Crafter: Rebeca Shimansky from Spain

The Schimansky family from SpainDigital crafting is a rapidly growing hobby and/or profession for many women.  One of the women I’ve been so blessed to get to know over the last year is Rebeca.  She’s the wife of a Pastor in Spain and searched the internet to find art that she could use to create Christian Products to sell and help support their family and ministry.

craft products created from audrey jeanne roberts\' digital clip artI was very taken with their story and asked her if I could interview her and share her story with the rest of my readers.  I asked her a series of questions and she wrote back such a wonderful response that I don’t want to cut it short.  I think what I’ll do is post part of it here on line and upload it in it’s entirety as a pdf document for those who would like to read the entire story and see their family pictures.

My Mother has always been very encouraging, and it is wonderful to be able to create something beautiful that has a special message from the Bible.  Last year we were struggling financially, so we started thinking and praying about the possibility of really pushing Inspiraflor (Inspire-flower would be the translation, although it sounds better in Spanish.. =)

But I really wanted to be careful about the copyright laws, so I prayed that the Lord would guide me to the right site. Well after MUCH looking I found the DAISIE Company and their wonderful Angel Policy under which I knew I could operate, so I started making cards, calendars, bookmarkers, stickers, pictures, and several other items. I am truly amazed at how the Lord has led me and helped me.  LINK TO COMPLETE ARTICLE HERE”

AUDREY’S RESPONSE:  Producing art that young (or not so young) mothers can use to create products to help their families has been a dream fulfilled for me.  I was able to be home with my children because of crafting and wouldn’t have the career I have today were it not for the wonderful craft shows I was able to sell my wares at.  If you are a crafter or professional crafter I’d love to hear your stories and just might feature some more of them if the response is strong enough.

On the business end, I have two new kits up in the store today.  AUTUMN GLORY 1 DIGITAL CLIP ART KIT Link here and AUTUMN GLORY 1 PAPER PACK Link here are now available.   You can see the previews above.  I’ll be uploading my fonts next, so stay tuned!
