Alfred John Quintons Country Cottages

    I have been working on a new papercraft CD for a while now. Its almost complete and tonight I have sent some sample sheets out to THe Celticmoon Crafts Design Team.

The CD is called Alfred John Quintons Country Cottages. He was a prolific artist from the begining of the last century. All of the images on this CD are beautiful examples of his paintings of British Country Cottages.

    The CD has a lot to offer. There are pyramage sheets, matching backing papers, bonus papers, t-bag tiles, DIY Decoupage, embellishments and more.

    For the first time there is a set of notelets with a matching box. It will make a lovely gift for someone, and I am sure it will sell well at craft fairs 

    The Angel Policy for the CD is quite simple you can make and sell anything you wish using the CD but you can not sell the individual sheets from the CD. There is no limit to the amount of items you make.
     
    Alfred John Quintons Country Cottages will be available from Celticmoon Crafts from the begining of May.

Bonnie Scotland Tutorial

                        Bonnie Scotland was the last CD Rom released by Celticmoon Crafts.
This tutorial will show you how to make this beautiful card using the Bonnie Scotland CD Rom.
From the CD you will need to print the pyramage sheet, card insert and backing paper. You will also need a pair of paper scissors, adhesive, and foam pads or foam tape. You will also need a sheet of black A4 card.
Begin by folding your sheet of black card in half to form an A5 sized card blank.
I always put the card insert in first as this saves disturbing your finished card when the glue may still be wet. Most printers will print the insert with a white border around the edge. Simply trim the border off. I find this very helpful as it makes placing the insert much easier. There are a lot of different ways to fix the insert into a card. Some people put adhesive on the back only, some on the front only. Personally I put a little adhesive on both the front and back as it makes sure the insert will not fall out.


Next trim your backing paper to size. You need a strip that will cover about a third of the card. Stick the backing paper in place using your favorite adhesive. I used a tape roller here, but you can use a wet glue if you wish. Using a wet glue means you can move the paper if you didnt get it in the right place first time. I like to fold a little backing paper onto the back of the card to give a neat finish.

Edge the backing paper with a peal of to give a neat finish. Dont forget to do the same on the back of the card, where you folded the edge over.



Stick the biggest image from the pyramage sheet on a piece of black card leave an equal border all the way around the image. Postition the image on your card as shown and then edge the picture and the frame in the same peel off as the one you used to edge the backing paper.
Now cut the remaing pyramage pieces out and atattch  foam pads or foam tape to the back. You can use silicone or pinflair glue if you wish. Starting with the biggest image stick them one on top of the other to give a 3D image. Make sure you match the picture carefully.
When you have done this you should end up with a card like this.
To finish the card I have added some peel offs.
As you can see this was quite simple and I hope you like it.

Sneak Peak

                                     
                                   
                                            As you know I am busy working on a new CD.

I thought you might like a look at one of the images on the CD. The artist is Alfred Quinton. He was a very prolific painter at the begining of the last century. I hope you like his work. I certainly do.

If you are anything like me I am pretty sure your head will be buzzing already with ideas of what to make. I am planning on having the work finished soon and sent out to the design team. I guess I better get my nose back to the grindstone to make that happen.

Digital Downloads

As you probably all know by now the sale of digital downloads in the EU changed on January 1st this year.
Now the VAT Laws say you must charge the VAT Rate of the country the download has been sold in. As you can imagine this has been a nightmare. As a result of this I no longer sell Digital Downloads on my website.
However there is a minimum intervention rule which means that provided downloads are not automated you can carry on as usual. This means I am able to sell downloads via Facebook as once you have ordered I must make an individual file to send to you.
I now have a Facebook Group named Digital Downloads by Celticmoon Crafts. You can buy all of my downloads here. You can purchase single sheets, or kits, whatever takes your fancy and prices start at just 50p.
