Giveaway Winner

Thanks for participating my giveaway and telling me about the apps you are using.  The winner is  Lea L.
I just emailed you.  If you did not receive my email, please let me know.
Just in case if any of you are interested, here is what I learned from the comments about the apps for crafting.

Pinterest, Feedly and Paper crafts magazine are the most commonly used.  Quite a few are using photo collage apps.  Here are a few examples.

Pic Tap Go for editing photos, Over for layering text to photos, and Collect for organizing your photos on a calendar.  (Lea. L)

pic can make a collage of project steps! (Kara)

There are some company specific apps, including:

Copic marker app (Michele)

Stampin Up has a fun one (Simply sent)!  (Purrfect Paper Creations)

I really like Taheerah's idea of using Evernote to keep track of the stamp sets.  And I am also interested in Apple Pages 08 Jean Bullock suggested.

I have been using Pinterest, Feedly and Paper Crafts Magazine apps as well.  I recently started to use Evernote to jog down my ideas and keep track of the inspirations.  I also use Sketchbook to draw sketch and write down the details of technique or embellishment I would like to use for my projects. I found it is more organized thus far than sketch on a piece paper and could not find it any where.

OK, now back to cards.  My friend JJ, the die cutting queen,  designed some awesome stamps and the matching dies.  She has a giveaway on her blog.  I have two cards created using her Rounded Diamond stamp and dies.

The first one is a card for a friend who is expecting her third child.  I used the smallest die and cut some pastel card stock, arranged and adhered buttons. It is also entered into Simon Says challenge Happy mail.

The flower on the second card were stamped using the stamp set.
