A Summer Sale

I have a sale going in two places.  My Aimee Asher Digital Clip Art store is running a special for the month of July.  Buy $20 of  items and get 25% off your purchase.  I rarely do sales and this is the best pricing I ever offer, so if you’ve been looking for new art for your crafting for the Christmas season, now’s the time to stock up.

My Etsy store is running the equivalent, Buy 3 get the 4th FREE.  There are items at each location that are different and some cross-over so check them out.  Etsy has mostly has jewelry making collages and scrapbooking tags, journaling tags and the like.  AAE has complete digital clip art kits, paper kits etc.

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.

Windows on Christmas, Digital Clip Art Kit

LINK TO KIT IN STORE HERE I had a few extra minutes before I run out the door, so I thought I would upload another Christmas kit.  This one is one of my all-time favorites.  Created out of my memories of Christmas as a child the art in this is particularly warm and wonderful.

There are several pre-made card fronts included.  The  art itself was created specifically with card crafting in mind.  I’ve really enjoyed seeing the delightful Christmas cards that many of you ladies have made out of this kit since it was released at The Daisie Company last Christmas.  I’m always so excited and amazed to see your creativity!

The kit, along with all my other Christmas or Winter kits will be on sale for 20% off until December 15th, so grab it quick!

Again, have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I’ll see you in December!

Christmas is Coming — Here’s a Freebie to Help!

Christmas Gift Tag, freebie digital clip art crafting kit by Audrey Jeanne Roberts

LINK TO CHRISTMAS GIFT TAG FREEBIE HERE Here’s a little freebie treat for you that is made out of my “Contemporary Christmas 2” kits, both the paper pack and Digital Clip Art kit coordinate with it.  It’s a three dimensional, layered gift tag that you can make quite easily and glitz up with glitter, jewels or?  I personally adore decorating my packages with really special gift tags so I hope you’ll enjoy this little gift.

I think that this Christmas is going to be both a challenge and a blessing.  We all have a little less “excess” to go overboard with Christmas gifts so if you are crafty at all, it’s an opportunity to use your gifts and talents to make up the difference!  My very favorite Christmas memories are the ones where I spent time making my gifts for my family members rather than last minute rushing through the stores and grabbing what I could find and afford.

The real meaning of Christmas isn’t the glitz, glamour and race to outspend each other — it’s that God gave His most precious gift, His only begotten Son to a world that was lost without Him.  It’s that God wanted to enlarge His family through that gift and that His passionate desire is that we would have His Peace fill our lives and our world.

So as we head into the fall (yippee on the brisk cool mornings, I LOVE THEM!)  Let’s think of really meaningful gifts we can give to those we love.  If you have grandchildren, perhaps you could take them for a weekend to allow their parents time to rediscover their love for one another.  If you have a neighbor that is growing old and frail, perhaps you could take them with you to see the Christmas lights.  There are so many meaningful things that we can do for each other that cost very little if anything — except of course our TIME, which is the most valuable and limited thing we own.

CONGRATULATIONS!  THE BLOG CONTEST WINNER THIS MORNING IS THE 4TH COMMENT ON THIS POST:  SEE POST HERE

Christmas Freebie — Bookmark and Ornament Frame

freebie, free, bookmark, digital clip art, photo frame, christmas ornament, christmas digital clip art. audrey jeanne robertsLINK TO “HOLLY BERRY CHRISTMAS FREEBIE” HERE (I’ve fixed the link now, sorry!)  I have been working/playing with this art set all day and am finding it incredibly easy to put things together.  That always makes me feel good as I know then that you’ll find it easy to be creative as well!

Here’s a freebie sampler that is a bookmark and an ornament shaped frame that would work very well for scrapbooking purposes or cardmaking.  Simply add a saying and a background color or pattern and you have a card front art piece or add a photo and the frame will bring a little sparkle to any scrapbook layout you’re working on.

I created an 18 page 5″ x 5″ Instant Scrapbook with this art and will have it posted some time next week.  It came out so cute and was incredibly fast to assemble, it only took about 15 minutes to print and assemble.  If you have childhood and family photos from Christmas’ past this book will make a fabulous family gift.  I’m planning to assemble one with all of my kids Christmas photos from birth on up and will give each of them one for Christmas (as well as the grandparents).  I figure it will take me 1/2 a day to a day to assemble the photos, scan them and insert them into the design and then 15 minutes for each of the gifts to be assembled.  I can’t wait to get started.  (Don’t worry, the secret is safe, my kids NEVER READ my blog — you know mom’s kinda boring, LOL!)

Have a great weekend!

There are very delicate and detailed scroll work accents, hand lettered, hand-painted text, beautifully detailed holly sprigs in various shapes that work together very well to round corners and make frames with.  I’ve created some delightful “ornament” charms that can be printed on cardstock and placed back to back with your trims to make sweet little ornaments to adorn your hand made cards for Christmas.  These ornaments were first produced in gold accented orcelain by a manufacturer a few years ago.

I’ve been working with this kit today on two additional kits, an “Instant Scrapbook” set and a greeting card and envelope set.  It’s very, very easy to work with and almost anything you do with it will look great!

natural christmas clip art, red poinsettia, stocking, candles, joyCLICK HERE FOR LINK TO THE “NATURE’S CHRISTMAS KIT” IN THE STORE. Unfortunately, my store has suddenly stopped showing the extra product shots of the kits.  It is my habit to show 100% of the pieces included in an art kit in the previews.  I like to see what I’m buying anytime I buy something, so I make sure that you can too.  So I’ll show all of the previews here and my helper will probably be able to help me figure it out when she gets back from her weekend away.

This set is called “Nature’s Christmas” and has an elegant, woodsy feel to it.  I love to alternate between glitzy glamourous Christmas decor and then a more natural feeling Christmas.  My favorite place to celebrate Christmas is up in the mountains at Hume Lake Christian Conference center, especially when they get an early snow.  This set captures those wonderful memories for me and I hope will help you create some very special memories this coming holiday season!

I want to remind you that there are only 133 days left until Christmas.  If you are like me and want to do so much but never quite get it done.  Think of one project you can work on this month and get it done.  You’ll feel so good about it that it will give you the momentum to keep going — honest!!!  The years that I’ve done that have been such fun and special holidays.  It’s so much fun to have “guiltless” holidays.  If we stick together we can do it!!!
