CraftArtist 2 Professional is brand new and brimming with amazing new features for you to get crafting with! It’s easier than ever to make cards, scrapbooks, invitations, photobooks, party crafts and more!
The Digital Crafting Toolkit contains every single tool you could possibly need for crafting! We’ve added three brand new tools to CraftArtist 2 Professional that you’ll love. Use the 3D Decoupage Tool to instantly convert embellishments, photos and more into a beautiful stacked image. You can even edit the style of your decoupage to give it a different shape or central point.
We’ve also added the brand new Punches tab and the fabulous new Stamp Mode. You’ll find every type of punch you could want: shapes, flowers, Steampunk designs, birds, frames and more! With the new Stamp Mode you can select any object and create a stamp from it with one click! Especially effective when you resize, recolour and rotate the stamp while using it.
The Digital Crafting Toolkit also contains a whole range of stencils, brushes, scissors and edges – being creative has never been so much fun!
There’s no need to buy a separate photo editing package – CraftArtist 2 Professional contains all the photo editing power you need. Quickly & easily remove red eye, erase blemishes and correct brightness. Or for those of you that like to add special effects, there are over 60 to choose from! Plus, use the Cutout Studio to easily remove an object from its background.

We have been working hard to bring you all the tools you could possibly want for crafting on your computer. Watch this short video for an overview of all the new features. As well as the new 3D Decoupage Tool and the Punches tab we’ve already mentioned, here’s a preview of the other new features you can look forward to:
Creating and sharing your designs is now better than ever. Not only can you import PDF files into CraftArtist ready for editing, you can now choose from loads of professional export options when creating a PDF file.
We have also completely redesigned the Print Preview so it now gives you an accurate picture of what will come out of your printer.
If you love to use your cutting machine with CraftArtist, you’ll be pleased to know that it now supports SVG file import and export. Plus, when saving your design as a picture, you now have more file types for saving them, including as a Bitmap.
The filter effects you might know from CraftArtist 1 have been revitalised! Now containing over 450 graphic styles, each one can be applied to embellishments, images and other graphics with one click.
A fantastic new feature – pick a favourite photograph and CraftArtist will create a colour palette to match it! Allows you to coordinate your design with your photo for fantastic results!
The Colour Picker in CraftArtist has always been a handy tool, but now, it’s incredible! Not only can you pick any colour from your design, you can now choose from four different picking modes. Our favourite is the Gradient Sampler which allows you to take a selection of colours across an area and create a gradient swatch from it!
Fans of Solo Mode for working on intricate designs will love this new tool. Not only can you isolate a part of your design to work on, you can now isolate further within that area of your design! Particularly handy for working on detailed scrap pages, you’ll wonder how you managed without it!
The Digikit Creator allows you to import images and graphics from your computer and save them in your own CraftArtist kit. Well now, you can cut, copy & paste tags from item to item as you save, making it quicker and easier than ever to save your kits. We’ve also added in the ability to save stencils, graphic styles and punches as part of your digikits. Plus, as an extra helping hand, CraftArtist will now delete duplicate tags.
* Does not include space requirements for downloaded Digikits.
Additional disk resources and memory are required when editing large or complex documents.
"Version 2 is a very effective upgrade in capability. While the original is obviously a good foundation, the added new features, particularly those of punch and decoupage add an extra level of flexibility to any creative task. I have found especially the punch tool to be very easy to use and has given an added resource that normally would be several extra steps in other software. The same easy to follow interface, with extra strengths. A very valuable product with affordable price-highly recommended!"
"I was a bit upset that yet again I was going to have to buy some more software, but boy oh boy is it worth it. I appreciate that this type of software on the highstreet can go well into the hundreds if not thousands of pounds, and the technology moves on at the blink of an eye, having the new features is well worth shelling out for alone plus all the original features and more. Thanks Serif I feel like a professional designer whenever I use my CA software."
"This upgrade has just blown me away. The capabilities of this software belong with software that costs £300 to £400. The only difference, in my opinion, is that Craft Artist 2 is far more user friendly than the high end programmes. I don't think anyone should hesitate to purchase this software, you will not be disappointed. Well done Serif/Daisy Trail. I personally would give this software 10 + stars."

"Wonderful program, so many extra parts I still haven't explored, I'm really loving craft artist."

"Best thing ever. Once you open it you can`t leave it alone. Even nearly forgot to make tea for the family because its so addictive."

"CA 2 pro is a very userfriendly program for an affordable price! I would recommend it to everyone that takes the time to get to know the many possebilities to use your creativity. It's really fun to work with! I expect Serif to come with updates that correct the (few) crashes I experienced using the program"
"Once again Serif have produced another fabulous piece of software. CraftArtist2 caters for all levels of 'Artists' making it a brilliant bit of kit for the home crafters right up to the cutting edge photographers and craft designers......and everyone else in between! The new features of CraftArtist2 are incredible - giving crafters even more scope for creativity.... all at a truly magnificent price."
Anne Nelson (nannyanne), Pembrokeshire
"I just love all the Serif software, but Craft Artist 2 surpasses all expectations! Nothing better than creating...either just for fun or more serious stuff. The one thing that has really pleased me is when ever I have had problems and had to ring the helpline, I have been answered immediately by not just friendly, patient staff but my queries have always been sorted. They never try to finish the conversation till I'm absolutely OK that there is nothing more they can do for me....how often do you get that these days??!!"
"Wonderful software by a wonderful company which has been around for some time. Watch out for special offers. Easy to use my daughter has just downloaded and made all her house moving cards.I have been using for some years and find nothing better"

"I purchased this product some months ago, I am still finding it hard to maneuver around, but what I have learnt is brilliant."
"love it love it love it I'm addicted I also bought cd rom fizzy moon fantastic if you have the funds buy it don't delay :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)"
"Craft Artist 2 is WONDERFUL! At present I do more greeting cards with this program than scrapbooking. CA2 makes me look like a pro at designing. The CA digikits are great, but you can drop and drag or copy just about any "PNG" graphic you may have into this program. There are so many possibilities and the program is very easy to use. Let your creativity run wild!"

"CraftArtist 2 Professional is some of the best software I have ever owned. I have had much more expensive programmes, but none more efficient or with so much to them. For the price it is excellent."
"CraftArtist is fantastic and very useful for a lot of craft projects, I am over the moon with it."
