Just to let you know that Mike and Ian from Kraftyhands will be on Create and Craft tomorrow at 12 and 3pm to launch their new Cd rom 'Man about Town'. As the name suggests it is for the men in your life, because let's face it, they are a difficult bunch to make cards for. Although I must admit, the number of Cds etc in my stash for men's cards is increasing significantly recently, so quickly in fact, I haven't had time to try them all out.
Here is the Cd.
Here is a card that I made using the Cd rom. On the Cd, there are cardmaking sets to make stepper cards and gatefold cards. All the components are there for you to print out and make your card. There are toppers and backing papers etc so that you can make your own style card - in fact, all the things you would expect on a Cd.
This card is a gatefold card, from the gatefold cardmaking section. I love the colours on this one. I matted all the panels onto black card from my stash. I thought that the black would pick out the black on the Dad's trousers on the image.
I used blue baker's twine which I wrapped around one of the panels and also threaded some through the three faux buttons on the inside panel. Here you can write your own message by hand or take it into a programme such as Craft Artist and add your own text.

I hope you will be able to watch the shows and that you will get some inspiration from my teamies. Sadly, I haven't contributed to the samples for the show this time as I was on holiday and didn't have time to make any and get them to the studio in time for the boys to take them to Create and Craft. I am told though, that the samples that they do have are beautiful.
Hope you enjoy the show.
