Default WT156 - Computer Challenge

Good morning! It's Thursday again and time for another Ways to Use it Challenge. Today I know you can all play along with this challenge as the product to use....you are using it right now! That's right. Your computer! Find new ways to use it! Whether you create a sentiment, use some digital paper, image, print off a template or use another fun trick...today the challenge is incorporate your computer into your papercrafting. As always..make a card, altered project, even a layout. Whatever catches your fancy.

Please remember to put WT156 in your keywords section and post a link back here.

Some examples to get you started...

My sample... Time to Reflect

What a wonderful challenge. I'll have to be extra crafty since my printer is only black and white. Off to play! Thanks for the fun challenge!

Interesting challenge! I'm afraid the only creativity that I've done with the computer is make up sentiments. So I'll see what I can come up with later! No headache today....but now my DS is sick...so I'll see if I can actually do any stamping today!! Might be a neat trick!! Thanks Julia!

I totally hear you Amber!!! Mine keeps crashing and has been serviced four times since November! It's only a year old. I think having 5 people use it as well as the renovation dust is not helping things!

This is a better photo of yesterday's SK card, on which I used a computer generated name. Thanks, Julia, for a fun challenge! I hope I'll have a chance to make another card later today.

What a great idea Julia: Although I'm computer sophisticated, I lack knowledge of graphics, so this is sure going to be a great way to learn some new things! Yes !!!

I do use my computer once in a while to do sentiments or the inside sentiment, so this one should be easy! Thanks, Julia!!

Hi Julia,

I would love to do the challenge, but I am computer challenged. I went to the site you mentioned in you card. I'm sure it's something I'm not doing right but can't seem to be able to download designer paper. Do you have to be a member of the site. Have tried Googleing others also. No luck! Help!!!!!

Well when I first read the challenge I thought hmmm not for me. Then I went to Julia's blog and downloaded the free paper she went to. So this is what I came up with the DP is a computer download with the Happy Birthday overlayed onto it. The bird is the only stamping on this card. Kinda quick and easy.


Computer Happy Birthday


Thank you for looking.
