Two Tone

Hello again, this time I'm here with my DT make for the Graph'It Markers colouring challenge blog. This week we are being sponsored by the fabulous Kenny K. The image I have used is the stunning Retro Selfie! And the theme this week is to use two different tones, I have chosen to use Blues and Pinks and have used this colour palette.

The Graph'It's I have used are:
Skin: 4105, 4125, 4150, 3120
Dress: 6155, 5255, 5230, 5160
Blues: 7160, 7150, 7140
Hair: 9102, 9103, 9104

Papers

Good morning everyone, I'm here today with my DT make for the Polkadoodles blog. We have a new challenge starting today and that challenge is to use two papers. I have used the Oddella with Bag digi, and papers from the Octavia Collection. I have coloured Oddella in with my Graph'It Markers.
Unusually for me I have gone for the CAS (Clean and Simple Style) for my card as I wanted the focus to really be on the images as sometimes I think they can get a bit lost in all the embellies I tend to use.

Something old.

Good morning and Happy Choosday everyone.
I hope you've all had a fabulous weekend. It's been a really busy one for me, I was helping out with the prep for the Summer Crafting workshop and show, and then helping out with the workshop. It was great fun once again. Then I got to spend Saturday and Sunday shopping with our very own Nikky and the Lovely Lou from Polkadoodles. I spent way more than I should have, but hey ho, it made me happy and I'll have lots of fun playing with my new stash.
Now, talking of stash, we all have piles and piles of it don't we, now come on admit it, you do! Well over at Digi Choosday this week we are challenging you to have a good old root around and dig out and use some of your old stash to create something new. I've used the old but fabulous Picknix Gingerbread Twist Collection. This really is one of my fave collections! If you love it too you won't want to miss Nikky Hall on Create and Craft on Friday 17th with not one, but two fabulous new collections! Here is a little sneak peek for you. Eeeeek just look how lush both collections are! You are going to LOVE them.

Anyway, here is my make for this week.

Now don't forget to pop over to the team blog to check out the rest of the DT's creations and of course to get your hands on this weeks discount code! And I'll see you next week.

Christmas in July

Good morning and Happy Choosday everyone.
This week at Digi Choosday we are starting on our Christmas makes so have set the challenge of Christmas in July. I'm writing this post a few days in advance so it's actually blazing sunshine outside at the minute and is around the 30 degree mark! So quite strange to be doing Christmas makes for us in the UK. Never the less it wasn't a hard task as I used the fabulous Picknix 2, Gingerbread Twist Colletion. For those that have been following my blog for a while you will know how much I love this collection! In fact I used it a few weeks ago for the Tag it! challenge. Anyway here is my make:
For the background I cut two papers into 4 squares to make a patchwork background. I used a distress ink around the edges of the before sticking them down and then added some faux stitching to tie them together. The I sat and fussy cut all the embellies out whilst I was watching Wimbledon. As much as I love my Cameo I still also love to fussy cut, and I love Wimbledon so got to do two things I love together, how good is that!

Now don't forget to pop over to the blog to grab your discount code for today for some fabulous discounts off of our downloads! Also please visit all my teamies blogs for more inspiration.

Tag it!

Good morning and Happy Choosday everyone. 
We have a new challenge for you over at the Digi Choosday blog today and that challenge it to use a tag. You can make a tag, or you can make a tag shaped card, or you can make a card with a tag on it, anything at all as long as a tag features somewhere on your make. Here is my make for this week.
I have made the tag out of some Kraft card and then the papers, embellies and sentiments are all from the fabulous Picknix 2 Gingerbread Twist collection. I have used the Tea Dye distress ink to darken the edges of everything and added some faux stitching onto the papers. The 2 Picknix collections are available as smaller downloads and some even as physical paper stacks, which are so strokeable! You can find them all HERE. The die cut Poinsettia is a Tattered Lace Trio die from the latest Tattered Lace magazine.

Now don't forget to pop over to the team blog for more inspiration, todays discount code, and some news! We are looking for some guest designers to join us for a few weeks. All you have to do is enter this weeks challenge and add GDT to your name in the link up. It's a fabulous team to be a part of, so if you love Nikky's work then give it a go!
