November APTTC

 Today's share is from the latest challenge over at 

A Perfect Time To Create

We have two great sponsors this month

Fred She Said


Artsy Stamper

We all got to choose our own digitals to work with.  I chose from Fred She Said

Daisies and Ladybugs

This came with both coloured and no coloured images.  And just like everyone else at this time of year, time is not on our side.  So I opted for the coloured version to save me time.  

The Love sentiment is a MFT die.  
These printables are awesome for when you are in a time pinch.  Print, cut out and stick it on.  And who can resist daisies and ladybugs together?  

Don't forget to play along for your chance to be chosen as a favourite and win a prize/badge.  
Happy crafting.

Crafty Christmas Club - October Edition

2 months to go!

Hi and welcome to another great hop of Christmas inspiration from our participants.

I got my Aussie on for this month.  I really enjoyed making this one.  Very time consuming but well worth the effect.  
Selective coloured spaces.  The outside the frame is in black and white.  The inner I coloured with an added santa hat.  This set is from Umiquely Creative.  A fabulous Aussie company.  

Here is our blog hop list for this month.  There are some awesome projects to inspire you.


We have a lot more inspiration coming up in the weeks leading up to Christmas.  So stay tuned.
Happy crafting.

 Welcome back to another great week of inspiration from our DT over at 

Sketch Saturday

Here is the sketch for this week.

For this card I used my The Sassy Club Eighties Bears.  

Cardstock is SU Gorgeous Grape, Balmy Blue and all the rainbow colours too.  I cut those into strips and adhered them onto a spare bit of card and then cut into the shape needed for the sketch. 

I love how the clouds are on both the blue and the white panels.  A bit of continuity.  

Don't forget to play along for your chance to win.  
Happy Crafting.

Crisp and Crunchy

Crisp air, crisp apples, crisp leaves! The crisp blue of the sky. So many things are crisp and crunchy this time of year. Let's revel in them!

Now most of our participants are from the northern hemisphere. Me, I am in Australia so things are heating up down here.  While some will play along the crispy autumn leaves, me, I went with a beautiful cool, crisp start to a spring day.  Green leaves and birds singing. 

I don't make many sympathy cards (don't like tempting fate) but having one or two in your stash doesn't hurt. 

Today I am using the new Curvy Lines set from Stampin'Up (leaves and birds).  The frame is also from SU, Ornate Layer dies and the sentiment from MFT set. 
The patterned paper is from the Peony suite from SU.  the sentiment I silver embossed to add just a  little class to the final project.
You can check out all the other great projects for this hop from the links below. 


Such beautiful projects.  Join us again soon for another great theme to play along with.  
Happy crafting.

Another great week for a sketch challenge. 
Had to think outside the box on this one.

Pop on over to Sketch Saturday  and join in the fun for  your chance to win a prize.

Cozy Up

Oh, it's sweater weather! Bonfires and fireplaces, and extra excuses to cuddle! Let's cozy up! Not so much here in Australia but who doesn't love a good snuggle no matter the weather.

Inking up older sets I have in my stash has been a goal for the last few months.
This set is an old one from Clearly Besotted.
One of their original sets so no longer available.

I have always wanted a onesie but will have to settle for my doona (yes!) but these kids look really snuggly/cozy in their little outfits.  
The frame is an older Blueprints from MFT.  

Now for the rest of the other creative participants.  

Me (You are here!)

Full of awesome projects.  Stay tuned in the coming weeks.  We will have more great themes and a huge Christmas hop for some late seasonal inspiration. 
Happy crafting!

 It is Sketch Saturday time again.

Here is the sketch for this week.

I really wanted to play with my Uniquely Creative stash.  So I pulled out some paper from the 
Gums and Roses Collection.  

This one I done the usual black ink on the images and coloured them in using copic markers.  I was pleasantly surprised too, when I diecut out the heart ( Cut-a-part Essentials Die #2 ) from their patterned paper that it gave you two cut outs.  One outline and one full image.  Love d it so I used both.  Added the flower die cut image on top.  
The little love hearts are from the Good On Ya set.  I was tempted to colour them in but chose to just leave it as the outline images.
I have not decided what sentiment I would like on these cards so I have left them wordless for now. 

This one I used SU Sahara Sand to soften the images edges.  Gives it a kind of kids book artist feel I reckon.  Does not have to be perfect but still does the images justice.  

Don't forget if you have a blog and would like your chance to win you can enter this weeks challenge as many times as you like.  Click on the link above to take you to the blog where you can add your entries.
