Digi Choosday Week 29

The Design Team have been working on projects using Christmas/Winter colours this week.

I know Red & Green are the traditional Christmas Colours, but when I think of Christmas I see Blue and Silver, so that is what I have used on my project.

I used my favourite pre-coloured images from Octavia Frosted Winter and cut a bauble shape around them.

I then used one of the ribbon dies from Polka doodles ribbon-gift-frames-corners die set and added to the top with a little gem.

I also used one of the stalk stamps from Summertime STAMP ME for the baubles to 'Hang' from.

I added a little MDF Xmas that I painted blue and covered with glitter.



Wow it seems so early to do Christmas, but then I always leave it too late.

High Heels

I have waiting for a while now to use one the quirky images by Bloobel Stamps and this week I had the perfect opportunity to use one on a birthday card for a work colleague, who just loves her high heels.


The image is coloured with Copics with some clear sparkle pen on those hight heels.

Papers are from an awesome paper pad I found in B & M home stores for £2.99, bit of a bargain for a 12 x 12 24 page collection and they are great quality paper too.

I finished with a strip of diamonds an some flowers.

Adulting is Hard!!

My second project today is a fab new sprite, this is my perfect sprite COFFEE SPRITE.  I am a massive Coffee Drinker and drink it all day long and am a sucker for a visit to Costa.



Isn't she just perfect, I decided on a limited palette of brown, beige and pink.

How I wish I had my own little coffee sprite to bring me coffee all day long.

You can find her HERE,

We would love for you to come visit the Showcase Blog to see all the beautiful inspiration.

Flower Moon

I have coloured my image with Copics in bright summer colours and added a sentiment in Silhouette Studio.



I kept a simple layout to showcase the beautiful image, so just covered with a patterned paper from which I cut a circle aperture.

Finishing with some tattered lace corners and few Nuvo drops around the image.

The image is available HERE.

Digi Choosday Week 28

This week at DIGI CHOOSDAY, we have been challenged with a theme of 'Thank You', perfect timing as one of my Husbands work colleagues recently gifted us some children's books for my Son.

As always we are an ANYTHING GOES challenge, but you can join in with the theme if you wish.

I started by printing a backing paper from Helga Hippo, I matted one onto pink card stock and used the other to make the folded butterfly.

The centre layers are actually the left overs from cutting one of the flower borders in this collection, to which I added my sentiment (Silhouette store).

I added some pre-coloured flowers from Summertime Stamp Me and a few pearls to the corners.

Don't forget to pop over and get todays DISCOUNT CODE and check out all the lovely new images in the Store.

PAR-fect Birthday


Today I am representing Team C over at Colour Crazy and our sponsor is the fabulous Doctor Digi, They have the most fun stamps, I find them especially great for Male cards.

With this in mind I had a 70th Birthday card to make for my Husbands Golf Mad Uncle, so I have used Hole in one Hal to create a golf lovers card.



I made the sentiment in Silhouette Studio and also cut the golf ball too.

I have coloured Hal with Copics.


I look forward to seeing your challenge entries on our ANYTHING GOES challenge.

Digi Choosday Week 27

This week at DIGI CHOOSDAY, the team have been playing with the everso versatile design sheets, most collections have several to choose from and they are great because you can resize and also just use the elements you want.

I have used A Gift of Flowers from Winnie Special Moments and created a quick and easy Fathers day Card.



The only additional element I have used is the tiny love and Dad stickers.

Our challenge is always ANYTHING GOES and we would love to see you join us.

Butterfly Sprite


We have a new challenge over at Aurora Wings and it's an 'ANYTHING GOES' challenge, so plenty of scope with Mitzi's beautiful images.



I have chosen to use Butterfly Sprite and coloured her with Copics in shades of purple, blue and grey.





Earlier in the year I went to Ally Pally and brought loads of new products to try, one of which was the Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks and the background on this card was my first attempt using them.  I think it turned out pretty cool.

Another thing I wanted to try was gilding flakes, which I have used here on the dandelion and sentiment, very messy but I like the effect.

I look forward to seeing all your gorgeous projects, we would love to see you share them on our Facebook page too.
