LeAnn's World 101's April Inspiration Post

Good morning everyone and welcome to my DT Inspiration Post for LeAnn's World 101. This month I used the adorable Happy Crafty Birthday for my card and made a fun birthday card, using some new papers I have bought. I love purple and yellow together, but can never seem to find patterned papers in that combo until I happened to come across these on one of the discount crafting sites that sell out of season stock! Perfect timing for this card!  This card is for Crafty Sentiments Challenge Anything Goes Passion for Markers Challenge Week 589 Sentimental Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge #495 Anything Goes Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes Through The Craft Room Door Challenge Anything Goes Creative Knockouts Challenge #399 Tic-Tac-Toe (I used the bottom row - 3 or more patterned papers, sentiment and ribbon) Recipe: Stamps: Happy Crafty Birthday from LeAnn's World 101, Sweet Little Sentiments from Clearly Besotted Papers: Daffodil Delight & Gorgeous Grape

Scene It Sunday #42 Featuring Miss Anya Dress Up from The Greeting Farm

Good morning everyone and welcome to this week's Scene It Sunday post. This week I have created a scene using heaps of different digital images from The Greeting Farm to make a shoe room scene - quite an apt scene to make for someone who has about 250 pairs of shoes! Yep I really do have that many and yet, I wear probably 20 of those regularly! I love shoes and buy at least 1 pair a month most months, although I have been good this month and haven't bought any (but I did buy 3 pairs last month so I guess that makes up for it!) I started adding the bookcases for my shoe shelves and then found lots of shoes and bags from other sets. I used the rug from the Build-A-Living Room set, then added a sentiment to the bottom corner before adding cute Miss Anya herself getting ready to go out,  shopping probably! I am going to frame this colouring and put it up in my spare room where I keep my clothes, shoes and bags!  This project is for Sweet Stampin' Challenge No Squares Allowed C

The Paper Shelter Challenge #466 - Punches and Dies

Good morning everyone and welcome to my DT post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter . This week our challenge is for you to use punches and dies on your project. I used one of my Punch Around The Page Set from Martha Stewart for mine - I love these sets, but it looks like they are no longer being made. I also added a decorative circle die underneath the flowers as all.  This gorgeous girl is one of the latest new releases, Giselle , and I just had to use some of my favourite patterned papers with her. I love this soft colour combo!  This card is for Through The Craft Room Door Challenge Anything Goes Crafty Sentiments Challenge Anything Goes Digi Choosday Challenge Week 16 Anything Goes Lemon Shortbread Challenge #144 Anything Goes Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #156 Anything Goes World Wide Open Designs Team Challenge #4 Anything Goes Recipe: Stamps: Giselle from The Paper Shelter, Oh So Beachy Sentiments from Amy R Stamps Papers: So Saffron & Crumb Cake both f

Scene It Sunday #41 Featuring Arabella from Sweet November Stamps

Good morning and happy Sunday! Welcome to this week's Scene It Sunday post! For today's card I have used some adorable digi stamps from Sweet November Stamps and created this scene of Princess Arabella sitting on a wall by the river below her castle towering on top of the hill!

Good morning and welcome to this week's Something Else on Saturday post. I thought I would make a card using this adorable honey bear from Digi Doodle Studio. I have to admit I am not a fan of bees in real life, but love bee themed card and stamps - think it must be the black and yellow combo which I find so striking!

Scene It Sunday #41 Featuring George Gnomes from Twistoon

Good morning and welcome to this week's Scene It Sunday post. I have combined 3 different digi stamps from Twistoon to create this gnomish birthday card! I had so much fun colouring this scene and wanted it to look like George Gnome was bringing a birthday present to his friend's home! I made a DL sized card and kept it simple as the scene itself was so big and busy! I did manage to find an old pack of twine from Stampin' Up in the same orange as the base card! It's amazing how much stuff I have hidden away 😜 This card is for A Gem of A Challenge Week 8 Anything Goes Through The Purple Haze Challenge #179 Anything Goes Aud Sentiments Challenge #272 Anything Goes + A Sentiment Paper Funday Challenge #28 Anything Goes Creative Moments Challenge #212 Anything Goes Crafty Creations Challenge #420 Anything Goes Recipe: Stamps: George's Present, George's Mushroom House & George's Beard all from Twistoon, Hanging with my Gnomies from My Favorite Things  Pape

Scene It Sunday #40 Featuring Bunny Play by LeAnn's World 101

Good morning everyone and welcome to this week's Scene It Sunday post. Today I am sharing an image from one of the design teams I am on - LeAnn's World 101 - who are also sharing this image through the Kit and Clowder Facebook group. This cutie is Bunny Play and a great image for an Easter card. To step away from all the pastel colours of my other Easter cards, I have used some brighter ones, but to be honest, I do prefer the pastel colours for Easter and Spring cards, although I don't actually have much in the way of pastel patterned papers! Need to fix that and buy some I guess!  This card is for Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #155 Anything Goes Dragonfly Dreams April Challenge Feature A Creature 613 Avenue Create Challenge #4 Anything Goes My Time To Craft Challenge #454 Easter Crafty Catz Challenge #545 Anything Goes The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge Easter/Spring Recipe: Stamps: Bunny Play from LeAnn's World 101, Spring Baskets from Waltzing Mouse Stamp

Good morning everyone and happy Saturday! Today I have combined my Something Else on Saturday post with my DT post for the new challenge from LeAnn's World 101 .

Lawn Fawn's Ratatouille

Good afternoon and welcome to another post from me for today. I rarely do more than one post a day, but I had to share this card which I made the current Lawn Fawnatics challenge, but runs out soon! Their current challenge #97 is to be inspired by a movie, book or song. With all the mice stamps I have I decided to make a kitchen scene from Ratatouille, one of my favourite Disney movies. I used so many different stamp sets for this card and then when I went to put it together I realised I actually had enough bits and pieces to make 2 or 3 cards, so I have saved all the other bits for some other cards!  The cupboard and oven were just cut from squares or rectangles of card and the floor and walls were scored to look like tiles on the walls and floorboards on the floor, but they don't really show up in the photo. As the mice tails are so thin I couldn't cut round them so cut them off and just drew them back in with my Fineliner pen once they were glued in position!  I had so mu
