Digis by Jems

Good morning blogland. I have some more news to share with you today. Some of you may know of Jems Desgins who are well known for their Gothic and Fantasy CD's, well they have now launched a range of Digi images, some of which are quite different from their usual images, but of course with the same fabulous quality. I was delighted to be asked to join the Digi design team and here are my first samples I have done.

The images can be bought here. They are coloured in with Copics. The papers are from an oriental kit I bought from QVC a few years back. And the ribbons and buttons are from my stash.
There are now quite a lot of images to buy, so why don't you pop on over to Jems Designs and have a look at the fabulous images.

Polka Doodles

Good morning all. I hope everyone is managing to keep warm during this horrid weather.

I've got some exciting news to share with you all. You know I'm a massive fan of Polka Doodles products, which I'm sure you can tell by all the cards I make using their products, well, I am now a part of the amazing desgin team for them! I was soooo happy to be asked to be part of the team, I just hope I can do them justice!

So this is my first challenge card as part of the fabulous team.
The challenge is: Make a Christmas card and add Kraft.

The image and papers are from the Pretty Sweet CD. The image is coloured with ProMarkers. The flowers are handmade using the same papers. The frame around the image is the waste from the Marianne D Creatables - Designer Doily die. The silver flower is also from the same die. I've used some craft card and embossed it with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and then added glitter.
Pop over to Polka Doodles to join in with the challenge.

Haloween boxes

Todays items are Haloween gable boxes.
I don't "do" haloween but my friend asked me for some boxes for her sweet shop, so I bought this download from Aimee Asher. I took her one of each box in and she loved them and asked for 10 of each! So I spent a full day printing, cutting and glueing them.


I hope they go well in the shop. I think the last tall one is my fave, the image is sooo cute!

A frame for me!

After doing all those 3D frames I decided to do one for myself. This isn't really a photo frame it was bought as a picture. I've never seen so much polystyrene, glue and double sided tape holding a picture in! After spending ages taking the thing apart I finally got into it and managed to add my art, and this is the result:
I've used Stampin Up papers again and the Sizzix Graffiti alphabet. I've also cut our first names out in vinyl on my Silhouette Cameo and stuck them onto the mirrored part of the frame (which you can see my craft room reflection in).

3D frame

After seeing the baby frames on Facebook a friend asked me to make one for her friend who is due to have a baby this month. She asked for purple and sparkly and this is what I did for her:
For the name I've used a the Sizzix Graffiti alphabet which has a shadow behind the letters. I've done the shadow in silver mirror card. The papers are from Stampin Up and the flowers are from a Marianne die. I've also added some corners on the frame and added a few buttons.
I love these frames I think they are so different and no two people will have the same!

Another altered object

Todays item is an altered brown box. I got the box from Country Baskets a while ago and finally got around to decorating it.
 The papers are from K & Co, I've had these stuck in a cupboard for years! I've distressed the egdes with a file and some Tim Holtz Old Paper distress ink.
 The butterflies are Spellbinders and I've used both layers to give it a 3D effect.
 The image is from Make It Crafty and is coloured with Copics.
 A few close ups of the butterflies.
I've also added a Martha Stewart border at the side of the image.
I'm really pleased with how it's turned out. I also have a round box which I might have a go at soon!
