New Digital Stamps and a Giveaway!

March is always a sweet month for me, with my birthday celebration on the 2nd, and the promise of Spring in the air! Now I want to share the celebrations with you!  I think the new ACN release brings some sweet treats for everyone.  As in keeping with my blog and shop name, A Creative Need, I am always trying to think of ways to satisfy everyone’s needs!  I love drawing and designing and I work hard to create new images that card makers, crafters, mixed media artists and scrappers will enjoy using in their own unique way!   I hope these will please you.  I am always open to suggestions and ideas from my creative and crafty friends! 🙂 So, I have thought to sell some of my digital images as sets! An economical way to purchase digital images, as with anything, buying in bulk is often the way to go!  I’ve made available a complete set of digital stamps for less than you would  pay if you were to purchase each image individually. …


Have you entered the ACN contest giveaway yet? You could win 3 A Creative Need digital images just for leaving a comment on this POST. Check it out!  AND you only have a few days left to pick up the November FREEBIE before it’s gone!

It’s Game On! with a FREEBIE Designer Pack

I’m pitchin’ in for Peggy this week as she started a new job and is extremely busy! So I hosted this week’s Crafty Creations Challenge for Team Two and had time to join in by making a card too! I’ve used my NEW IMAGE: “Pitchin’ In” that I am releasing today in my A Creative Need SHOP. I made a HYBRID card using my new MY MEMORIES SUITE software to create everything except the kraft background and base card.  The baseball and the bat are stickers and I’ve wrapped baker’s twine around the left edge. I used a  My Memories Suite designer pack to create the digital elements of this card!  It was easy: I opened the MyMemories Suite software and chose my album size (I chose 4″ x 6″ for a printable card project).  I  clicked on Embellishments, ADD, ‘browse others’ to open my downloaded  designer pack. I added the papers and elements I wanted to use to create my card, and when I was finished, I clicked: SHARE ALBUM ====> EXPORT PAGES and saved …
