Craft artist dipping in deeper

I recorded a program from the create and craft channel last weekend about the CRAFT ARTIST program which has reminded me how good it is. So as well as all the other crafts I am trying to squeeze into my days I now want to use CRAFT ARTIST as well. I really have the attention span of a fish at the moment.  All the time my mind is drifting from one craft to another.

ANYWAY THEY WERE DOING DEMONSTRATIONS on using the punch feature and the brush feature and as my clearing up on Monday found the manual for CRAFT ARTIST lets give it a go.

I set my paper size for an eight by eight scrapbooking page then selected a backing paper and a couple of materials.  After adding the backing paper I placed one of the materials on my page,  selected the scissor function on the toolbar and then chose the flower punch.  I saved the flower and discarded the rest of the material then repeated this for a second flower.  I then placed the second piece of material on my backing paper and this time chose the circle punch, I punched two circles - discarding the circles and keeping the background.  I then dragged the flowers into the circles and added two small butterflies.  A large butterfly completes the page ( I reversed this image because it looked nicer). 

This program is such a joy to use and rarely have I struggled with it, on the rare occasions when I have it has been because I have not read the instruction properly or I have been impatient.
