Clip Art – Fall is For Quilters

I’m playing with a couple of Fall projects where I will need to do some printing.  As such, I started playing with my design to see what else I could create with it.  I could see using this for quilt labels, blog posts, newsletters, and greeting cards.  How would you use it?  Are there quotes or other wording that you would like to see in this layout?

The 2013 Pets on Quilts Show is open for entries this week – voting next week!

pets on quilts

Jacque at Lily Pad Quilting has officially kicked off the 2013 Pets on Quilts Show.  Entries can be submitted at the show post (click here) thru Saturday, August 17th. Voting for your favorites will be open Sunday, August 18th through Saturday, August 24th.  There are wonderful prizes, donated by very generous sponsors, and many ways to win a prize.  But this show is really all about having fun, showing off our pets, or how much we love pets in general.  Even if you don’t have a Pet you can enter.

While SewCalGal is sadly “pet-less”, I do so love all sorts of animals.  And, I love EQ7 so I decided to play around with this software to create a whimsical cat design to share with you today.

I call it “Cats playing on the grass at night”.  What do you think?

Pop on over and check out all of the super cute and fun entries in the Pets on Quilts Show.  They make me quack up!

While SewCalGal is copyright protected, if you would like a copy of the quilted duck (above) you are welcome to take a copy and use as you wish.  I hope it quacks you up too!
And, I’d love to hear you have an entry in the Pets on Quilts Show this year too!

Creating Quilt ClipArt, Signs, Banners and more

I use a variety of software packages to create digital artwork, frame and format photos, make greeting cards, scrapbook pages, badges and other items for blogging, etc..  But, I can truly say that the MyMemories software has become my go to software, as it is so easy to use and fast to create what I need to do.  Thus, it gives me more time for doing other things I also enjoy doing. And, today, I’m spending the day quilting (not housecleaning).

And, given the sun is cheerfully shining today, I may also get outside and do some gardening this afternoon.

Creating Clipart for Quilters & Bloggers (freebies too)

Between blogging, guild newsletters, creating greeting cards, etc. I’m frequently looking for clipart, as well as easy ways to format text and photos for sharing.  While, I use a variety of software packages, I have been having great fun using the myMemories Suite software.  It didn’t take me long to create some simple WordArt and I wanted to share this with you. To clarify, if there are images that I’ve created and shared in this post, you are more than welcome to take a copy and use, if you are interested.

To start off, I want to wish those that celebrate Hanukkah, a very Happy Hannakkah! 

And, for those that celebrate Christmas, I’d like to wish you a very Merry Christmas.

I found this quote inspirational and it also made me think about how our quilts give comfort to many.
For my friends that run their own business, I had to create something using this cute quote:
For those that make charity quilts, as well as quilts to give to those that need a good quilty hug, or even make a quilt for a loved one, this quote inspired me to create this image:
This quote has always been one of my favorites:
This is a fun quote, but I also feel the same way about chocolate:
Lastly, these words just seem to sum everything up:

I’m definitely having fun with the MyMemories software.  While this software was created for Scrapbookers, I am of the opinion that a Scrapbooker is a quilter that hasn’t discovered fabric. And, there have been some wonderful products designed for Scrapbookers that have found their way into the home of a Quilter.   Either way, this software is really fun and easy to use and it also offers great creativity to quilters and bloggers alike.

While MyMemories software is reasonably priced at $39.97, they have also offered readers of SewCalGal a $10 discount off the purchase of the My Memories Suite Scrapbook software.  And, they will also give you a $10 coupon for the My Memories store – $20 value!
