Something Else on Saturday #34 Featuring Lady Bea from JMC Designs

Good morning and welcome to today's Something Else on Saturday post! I am hoping that this one goes live properly this week! I received this digi as a freebie from JMC Designs through the Kit & Clowder Facebook group and I love this funky design! I think I may have to purchase some more of Julia's digis!

I have seen loads of these tall card designs around again recently (They were all the rage when I first started crafting), so bought some card blanks and I love using them for a different shape to my usual square! It was a perfect shape for this image as she remained centre stage whilst still being able to add enough embellishments too! The sentiment was part of the patterned papers and thought it fit the feel of this image perfectly as well!

The Paper Shelter Challenge #406 Christmas Spirit

Good morning and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week, our challenge is called Christmas Spirit and a great opportunity to make a start on some Christmas cards!

I have used the newly released My Christmas Snowballand kept with traditional colours of red and green for this card. I actually found these papers in a box I received as a free gift from Create & Craft when I went to the Crafting Live show last year and have hardly used any. I thought they would work really well with this image.

Faery Ink Inspiration Post - Snow Bunny

Good morning and welcome to my first inspiration post of the month for Faery Ink. I have now made a bit of a start on my Christmas cards - I send more of these out than I do Hallowe'en cards so have to start making them as soon as Hallowe'en is over!

I love this Snow Bunny digi stamp from Faery Ink and just had to colour her in one of my favourite winter combos - pink and grey!

Something Else on Saturday #33 Featuring Di's Digi Stamps Tree Mouse

Hello everyone and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post! I completely missed last week's post as I forgot to schedule my post and it sat in draft all week, so really this is last Saturday's but a week late! Oops!

Anyway I thought I would share a cute image I coloured during my half term holidays at the end of October now it is finally on a card. I love Di's Digi Stamps mice images and have heaps of them! This one is a new one for me though.

Scrapper's Delights VIP Chibi Deals

Good evening and welcome to my DT post for this month's DT VIP Deals from Scrapper's Delights. This is where we share a project using one of the images within this month's deals!

I chose to use the gorgeous Xmas Honey 3 image and created a snowy scene of her next to a snowman. I did realise while making this card that I have a major shortage of snowman dies - this was my only one! Need to rectify that I think, so I guess it's time for a bit of crafty shopping!

LeAnn's World 101 Challenge Guest Designer Post

Good afternoon everyone and welcome to my guest designer post for LeAnn's World 101. I won one of their challenges a little while ago and along with a prize of 2 digi images from the store, I was also invited to use one of those images in a GDT post, so here it is!

I used the gorgeous Kalani and added her to this fantastic patterned paper which acted as the perfect background for this scene! I added lots of die cuts to add a bit more texture and scenery too.

Good evening and welcome to my DT post for the new releases from Scrapper's Delights. This month Janice has released some super cute images and this Zodiac images is free with the special bundle deal.

A Week of Hallowe'en - Thursday & Faery Ink Inspiration Post - Destiny Graveyard Vamp

Good morning and Happy Hallowe'en! Welcome to my DT inspiration post for Faery Ink! I know Amanda just loves Hallowe'en, probably more than me, but I just had to make a Hallowe'en decoration using the gorgeousDestiny Graveyard Vamp. Isn't she just a sexy vamp?!

I used my fabulous Spiderweb Punch Around the Page set to make the frame and had to add oozes of blood dripping down different sections!

Good morning and welcome to another of my Hallowe'en posts! Today I am combining it with my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter, which is to make a square project. Easy right?!

A Week of Hallowe'en - Tuesday

Good morning and welcome to another of my Hallowe'en post for this week. Today I'm sharing a card using a few of my new sets from Clearly Besotted - Halloween Plushies, Halloween Gift (which was a freebie set with the new release bundle) and Picture It Halloween.

I will add that my copics went really horrible on the grass on this card and try as I might they just would not blend. I have tried everything to fix this set of colours and always forget they are awful to use until I get halfway through the colouring. To be honest, I think I need to chuck them away and buy new ones as I have cleaned and cleaned them, changed the nibs and they are still sticky. There must be something wrong inside I think!
