Christmas in Blues & Purples

Good morning everyone, hope you have a very happy choosday! Today our challenge at the Digi Choosday Blog is Christmas in Blues & Purples. Here is my make for this week.
I decided to make some table place cards, but instead of the usual I decided to do it as a cracker and put a personal treat inside each one that I know they will love! I have printed papers and embellies from the Angelberry Christmas CD onto card stock and used a die to cut the crackers out. I took the baubles into MS Word and added the names onto them. I finished them off by tying them closed with coordinating bakers twine.

Have you joined our two Facebook pages for sneaky peeks of new products, inspiration from the DT and a place where our fabulous customers share their very own makes with us? Here are the links to the two pages. The first page is our very own Digi Choosday page, you can search for Digi Choosday Crafting or use this link:

Frame it

Good morning everyone, it's time for some mid challenge inspiration over the the Premium Craft Brands Blog. The challenge is "Frame It" and here is my piece.
I stamped a large butterfly stamp in white ink and embossed in white on black card. I then used the red, blue and yellow pearl Panpastels to colour the image in. I then embossed a frame on black card and used a Versamark ink pad over the embossing and then went over it with the yellow pearl Panpastel and it really makes it pop. It's so hard to get a good photo of the effect it gives, but believe me it is really nice!

Good morning blogland. Today it's time for a new challenge at the Polkadoodles blog and this week the challenge we have been set is to make a tag. I have used the Wonderland stamp set and the Wonderland CD to create my tag. You can buy them as a bundle to save some money here. You save a whopping £4.98! I have cut the paper into squares to create a patchwork effect and inked the edges of all the squares before sticking them down. I then added faux stitching around the edges.

Good morning everyone, I hope you all have a very happy Choosday. For our challenge this week at Digi Choosday the theme is Travel/Holidays, well as I'm sure you are all aware holidays are my favourite thing to do EVER, and I'm having serious withdrawals this year only having one holiday and a quick trip to Spain.
Anyway when I saw the new digi images in the Polkadoodles store one of them reminded me of me so much I had to have it. Why did it remind me of me I here you ask, well once when I went to visit my friend in Spain, she didn't recognise me as I had died my hair and I was wearing a hat! So the image is Maddie Twirling Curls and here she is!
I chose these two colours as they are my favourite colours and my hair used to be that shade of blue and at the moment is purple!
Maddie is coloured with my Graph'It markers and the papers and flowers are from the Dollie Goes East collection download . The postcard stamp and message are from the Postcard stamp set. The suitcase and caravan dies are from Tattered Lace.

Pink, Pink, Pink

It's time for a new challenge over at the Premium Craft Brands blog, can you tell what it is? Yes, you've guessed it, it is to make something pink. Now that's now hard for most girls is it! So here is what I have come up with.

It started out life as a Kraft board bird house. To start with I gave it a base coat of white Gesso. I then mixed the Magenta Pan Pastel with the Gesso and gave it another coat. I then used the same Pan Pastel through the Spirograph mask to create the pattern. I then painted over it with a coat of Glassy Gesso and painted and added a wooden butterfly.

Organised for Christmas

Good morning everyone. It's time for a new challenge over at the Polkadoodles blog, and this week the challenge is "Get organised for Christmas" with the added challenge for the DT to make a shaped card.
So here is my make.

I have used the Dutch Doobadoo Shape art 4 to create the card shape and the matting and layering. The image, papers, sentiment and parcels are all from the Angelberry Christmas CD. The bells and spruce die cuts are from Tattered Lace. I have used the Dusty Concord distress ink around the edges of everything.
