The Paper Shelter Challenge #394 Face It!

Good morning and welcome back to thePaper Shelter Challenge! we have had a bit of a summer break and are now back to our usual routine of the weekly challenges with each team taking turns to share their projects for the challenges.

This week's challenge is called Face It and we want to see projects where the main image is just a face, not a full body. You could use one of the gorgeous images from the Paper Shelter store, or alternatively crop an image to show just the face!

I used the magical Glittery and Sparklingimage to make a windowed card. This is the card closed. I added a few stars to the outside to continue the pattern of the digital stamp. These kind of cards are always difficult to close so I added the sentiment at the top so it would overhang and catch the right hand side underneath it and then added some ribbon at the bottom to tie it together there too.


I added some other patterned papers on the inside, but kept it fairly flat so it is easier for adding to an envelope…

Newton's Birthday Trio

Good morning and welcome to my blog post for today. I'm sharing the adorable Newton's Nook Birthday Trio card which I have coloured up for the Inky Paws Challenge #104to use brown, orange, yellow and teal. I actually found this harder than I thought, only because I don't have many patterned papers with teal in them apart from floral ones, which I didn't want to use as I wanted this to go in my male cards collection. I never seem to have enough of men's cards, so any opportunity I can, I try to make one!

This card is also for Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #112 Anything Goes A Gem of A Challenge Week 16 Anything Goes The Outlawz Monday Greetings Challenge Anything Goes Inky Paws Challenge #104

Something Else on Saturday #22 Featuring Lulu With Sundae from The Paper Nest Dolls

Happy Saturday! I do love Saturdays, but each one is bringing me closer to the end of my summer holidays! Boo! It will soon be time to go back to work! Anyway...here is my card for this week's Something Else on Saturday post using the adorable Lulu with Sundae from The Paper Nest Dolls.

I decided to give her a "mint choc chip ice cream" outfit and love how it came out! I also used some of my very old Sweet Shop patterned papers from Stampin' Up, which has these cute ice cream images in! Perfect for this stamp!

Good morning everyone and welcome to a random post of mine! Today I am sharing with you all a colouring page of Hannah Lynn's which you can only get from her Patreon page, to which I have subscribed each month since April, but I have yet to colour a single one! I finally got round to it this month! I do print them out, but never get the time to colour them usually.

This one is called Fun At The Fair and I printed it as an A5 sized image before colouring with my Copics. It took a while to do but I really enjoyed doing it!

Something Else on Saturday #21 Featuring Happily Ever After by Selina Fenech

Good evening and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. Apologies for being late in the day but I completely forgot that I hadn't actually written this post! Today I am sharing an A5 colouring page from Selina Fenech called Happily Ever After. This is actually a scene from Selina's book Memory's Wake, which I read a while ago about a young girl who gets transported through a portal, where eventually she meets up with another young girl who has no memory of her life at all and does not appear to be from the same world. Go check it out, it's worth a read even if Young Adult books are not your thing (they're not mine usually either!)

Anyway....here's my colouring of this page for Selina's Facebook colouring competition. A very detailed drawing and took several hours to colour, but I love how it came out and think all that time was definitely worth it!

This colouring is also for Lemon Shortbread Challenge #99 Anything Goes Creative Fingers Ch…

Something Else on Saturday #20 Featuring Spring Wryn from Tiddly Inks

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post with the gorgeous Spring Wryn from Tiddly Inks. I actually made this card to enter the DT call about a month ago and then never got round to entering in time, so I guess it means it wasn't meant to be this time!

I gave this card to my teaching assistant Brooke was left at the end of the school year to move to Reading as her husband has a new teaching job there. I will miss her loads as she is an amazing TA and her new school are so lucky to have her!

I layered the flowers and butterflies that you get with this image to create a garden scene. I do love how this one came out!

Something Else on Saturday #19 Featuring More End of Year Cards

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. Today I have a couple more end of school year cards to share with you that I made for the other two teachers in my year group.

This first one was for Ellie and she just loved this card using Rosie and Bernie in Hawaii. I also used the flowers from my Newton's Nook Aloha set that I shared last week and my beloved Palm Tree Dies. I wish I had bought the palm tree stamp to go with this image though as the size of these dies isn't quite right for the stamp.

This card is also Crafty Friends Challenge #115 Summer Colours Crafty Catz Challenge #472 Anything Goes with Optional On The Beach Theme Colour Crazy Craft Challenge Week 29 Anything Goes Polkadoodles Challenge Week 30 Anything Goes Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge #440 Anything Goes Crafty Creations Challenge #395 Anything Goes
