How to get more from your Creativity Club Downloads

Hiya crafty friends,

I love this weeks Creativity Club and want to show you how to get more from your downloads, with one simple step.

 The download came in these beautiful deep purples etc which give a stunning rich affect

But what is you love the design but want to make a more subtle project? Well, that's one of the great benefits of working with can make them work for you and it's very easy to do (and saves ink too).

All printers are different, but will have this feature. Before you print, go into print properties and select 'Draft'

Then print the pages you'd like to use. That's it, how easy is it that!!

Here's a card I made using this method

So you can get two completely different looks for the same download. Why not give a go? :)

If that isn't all, Docrafts are really happy to announce that Santoro's Gorjuss is coming to Docrafts!! I'm so excited as I LOVE Gorjuss!!!!
