Trying something new - tribal bottlecap 1 inch circles

Okay, I've got to admit that I haven't been able to completely stay away from my computer and working on some things.  Today I tried something new that I hope folks will like - I tried doing some bottle cap 1" circles for use with magnets, jewelry, hairbows, etc.  I'm including both 8.5"x11" and 4"x6" formats, in JPG and PDF.

For my first set I decided to use one of my best selling sets of designs, my Tribal clip art and digital papers.  Hope you like them!

Winter Digital Frames

I was especially thinking of the teachers when I created these new winter digital frames. I'm sure they'd love to have something wintery to highlight their student pictures (as would all those parents) and I think these are wonderful for just that.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you who are celebrating tomorrow!

It was a great wedding!

So, DearSon's wedding is over.  We had a great time! I'm so glad, everything went so well for them! And I'm so glad that I was able to be involved the way I was, between creating the invitations and helping with the foods for the reception - well, it was nice to be a part of it all!

For the fun of it, here are the invitations I created for the bride and groom.  They wanted a hockey theme, from invitation to reception, so that's what we did.

Great new coffee clip art and digital papers!

After a summer filled with preparations for the upcoming wedding of DS, here are the new coffee clip art and digital papers that I'd promised you.  Hope you love them!

Working on wedding invitations

I got a new paper cutter today and dove right in with cutting apart the reception cards for DS's wedding invitations.  The invitations themselves look like hockey tickets and the paper is perforated so you just fold and tear those, but the reception cards are printed on regular cover stock, 4 to a sheet, so that means I have to cut them apart.  The paper cutter worked very well and I only had to re-print one sheet to make up for cutting errors.  Yay!

Tomorrow I work on the envelope liners for the invitations.  They have blue maple leafs all over them, again to give them a hockey feel as DS and DIL-to-be love the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Designing this set of invitations has been fun and a great experience but I'll be glad when it's over. I just want DS and DIL to be happy with their invitations and go on to have a wonderful wedding.  Then I can focus on finding the perfect dress to wear to our event of the year.

Busy bee

Hello, everyone! So sorry about being away so long! There are so many things going on, what with summer chores, dear son's upcoming wedding (I'm doing the invitations), and adding in several new shops. I've been dropping the ball on getting new designs out to you but, as happens so often in the summer, things will definitely get better in the next few weeks.

On the summer chore side, last week DH and I hired a dumpster and tore down 2 old sheds on our property.  We filled that monster to the brim!  Then, this last weekend we cut up several tree trunks that we'd felled some weeks earlier. Fortunately, our neighbor decided they wanted the wood for a new firepit, so we didn't have to try to wrestle the wood to the dump.

Dear Son's wedding invitations are coming along swimmingly.  The hockey ticket invitations themselves are designed but my printer has decided to be stubborn, so it's looking like a new printer will be in the works before they can be printed. I'm also doing a reception card for Dear Son and his bride, and a liner for their invitation envelopes, which of course also depend on our getting that new printer. *grin* It never ends, does it!

Our new shops are in teacher venues.  If you're a teacher, I hope you'll check them out at:


I'm looking forward to everything settling down really soon.  Can't wait to get back to designing.  I have a to do list as long as my arm!

Summer time...

It's the lazy, hazy - but not too warm - days of summer here at Candy Box Digital.  Hope everyone is having a lovely week, or even better an extended weekend.

Things are happening behind the scenes here at CBD. I'm using the summer quiet time to tick off some items on my to-do list. Coming up next are some coffee related items, which I hope you'll enjoy. And we'll be telling you more about them very soon.

A new trend - Coral and Mint

Coral and mint are a hot combination right now.  And here and there we added just a hint of buttercream to keep those colors popping. Here is our take on those new colors for digital scrapbook and other background papers.
