Dr Digi

Welcome to my first post for Sketch Saturday (in a while).  I took a little hiatus to regroup and now I am back!  

We have a great sponsor this week:

Dr. Digi has generously offered 2 digital stamps of the winner's choice!

Here is sketch #589

And here is my take....

The image from Dr Digi I used was the Comic Sentiment 1 (have a super birthday).   

This was a no brainer for me.  We all know how much I love my fandoms.  And I know the "S" is for a certain male character but this young lady was part of the Super Friends group so I think she earned 

I hope you can join us for your chance to win!

It is that time again for our latest projects for A Perfect Time To Craft challenge. 

This months sponsor is craftsUprint . 

 The image I used is Christmas the Reason For Love - Baubles   This is actually a set you can print off as a ready made card as well as print off the center as well.  I chose to just crop the front cover image down to keep it simple.   

I think these look great as tags.  You can print out as many as you need without having any leftovers to store away for next year.  
I just sized the image to what I wanted ( I use Word but there are many programs out there to use) and trimmed them down.  Adhered them to some silver foil cardstock and run them through my Bigshot with a stitched die.  Then hole punched a hole for the ribbon to go through.  On the back (which I didn't take a photo of DOH!) is To and From stamped.  There is even enough room to write a little message.  

An elegant touch to any gift that you are giving this Christmas.  I have these 3 for my kids.  It is nice to make a project that you can actually use.
Don't forget to play along with us this month.  There are prizes to be won!

Happy Crafting

Rock On Again

I just had a look at the blog and I cannot believe I didn't share my colouring of this fabulous little set.  
Rock On another set from Kindred Stamps, but I have linked the set to my Aussie retailer Dawn Lewis as she has plenty of these sets on hand for you to purchase.  

The photo is not the best as the new lamp I have bought is shining a bit bright at the top of the page.  But you still set the idea.  
The next photo shows a certain rocker in all his unshaven glory.  I used my copics to colour all the images but have now discovered that my black prismacolour pencil does a great job on stubble.  I can see me whipping these pencils out more often! 

And here is a planner page (very simple but I will get better with doing these I promise!)

So if you are into these rockers from past then don't forget to pop in to the markets listed in my previous post. You will never know what projects you will find.   

Happy Crafting.

Limited Edtion Box Colouring

Hi all!  I am back with some colour combo's I have been working on.  

 I am gearing up for some Handmade  Christmas markets in the lead up to the holiday season. (Maryborough and Hervey Bay)

Also I was asked if I would do this, which gave me the push I needed to finally get it done.  Still have so many sets that need doing but 1 set at a time.  

First up here is the Pride Limited Edition Box that Kindred Stamps put out a while back.

Let me tell you.  Trying to come up with the different yellow colour combo's was not  Copic yellows are not the best, but I reckon they turned out pretty good.  
I love the little grubs....sooo cute!!

The second one I done was the Toy Box Limited Edition Box.  With both these sets I struggled a little bit, but I am thinking it was because I was not in the right mood.  Sometimes you have to be in the right frame of mind to do certain things.  But I am impressed that I got them done, at least.  

My fav from this set is the little green fella right at the bottom.  So easy to colour but cute at the same time.  Now it is a matter of colouring multiples of everything ( not to mention cutting them out! You know me and my fussy cutting).  Will try and share more projects that I have coming for the markets.  Even going to do some new display ideas.  Just hope I can make them work.  

Happy crafting.

World Cardmaking Day

Whoever thought of this is a genius!  Another excuse for us to get in our craftroom is what World Cardmaking Day is for!  LOL

Today I held a class in my home.  My favourite ladies helping me to do what I love to do.  

And yes we even a flowers on the table (not real but very pretty) to embellish our space.  

We made 6 cards today in a matching gift set.  It is up to each of the ladies whether they keep them as a set or just give them away individually.  Here is just one for an example.  

We used  the Good Morning Magnolia set from Stampin'Up.

and the matching papers Magnolia Lane DSP

I love these so much.  I will be having the gift sets available in my stall.  Great ideas for Christmas gifts.  
I hope you are enjoying your World Cardmaking Day. I know I am.

A Perfect Time To Craft

Welcome to my fist post for the challenge page A Perfect Time to Craft
The October Challenge with A Perfect Time to Craft is now open  The sponsor for this month is The Artsystamper Shop
The image I used was Field Flower Silhouettes

I have started my very first journal.  I know, I know, I am a bit slow on the uptake but for some reason I take a while to warm up to something new.  

This one is a pocket divider page (not sure of the terminology for planners so pardon me for a while whilst I learn.... :-)  

The heart is like a charm hanging from the brad reinforced hole.  I printed some butterflies and made them into clips.  They are so cute!  

And I also resized 3 butterflies and grouped together to fit onto a banner shape.  You don't just need to have words on tabs.  I really like the idea of images.  :-)

Don't forget to play along .

Rock On

Hi again!  
Today I got a chance to play with my Kindred Stamp set,
Rock On , from my personal stash.  

Kindred Stamps, Rock On stamp set, Australia

I will be making a few of these for the Fandom part of my stall, so stay tuned for more cards using these fab images.  

Here is card number one!

I used the POP ART as my inspiration for this one.  This was fun to do as well as a little challenging.  The galaxy background is the Altenew Nebula washi tape.  This stuff is a must!!!

I have added the links with the names of products for your convenience.  Dawn Lewis will definitely look after you if you are after these items.  

Don't forget there will be more projects using this set to come over the next few days.  
Till then......
