Beat Paper November Release

 Hi and thank you for stopping by. 

Today is my first  time designing for Beat Paper and her new releases.  

Today i am sharing a project using 4 images from 

The Fellowship

I love to make bookmarks.  So I made this cute set.  You cannot make one without the other 3.  
I will take you through the step by step on how I coloured and made the bookmarks.  

All codes are for Copics markers.  My marker of choice!

Now for the bookmarks.  I love using Oxide inks on water colour paper. 

Firstly need to trim down the die cut bookmark.  It is an older MFT one.  

Next I wipe some oxide ink onto plastic laminate.  

Then spritz a little water on it.

Place the bookmark face down. Do this until you get the coverage you want.  

This is how my first one turned out.

Each one comes out differently.  Every one is unique. 

Then diecut out coloured card stock and adhere each front panel onto them.  

The last one shows I added some ribbon and string to finish them off.  

Thank you for joining me on my little crafting adventure.  Catch you next time. 
Happy crafting!

APTTC November

 A Perfect Time To Craft  time again.

One of our great sponsors this month is Beat Paper
And the image I chose is from an awesome set 

I chose the main character but will be doing colour codes for all the images from this set.. 

The background on the card took me forever.  I mask off each colour band and used various shades of blue to give it the anime feel.  Grabbed a stencil from my stash and made the hazy smoke like image behind him.  

The sentiment was done using Word document  I even downloaded a free font that matches this theme.  

Thank you for popping in.  Don't forget to play along with our challenge for your chance to win!

Happy crafting!

The Queen

 Today I get to finally share my card I made when the Queen sadly passed away. 

I decided to keep this card for the card class I teach as I thought it was cute.

I used a freebie image of the corgi from Stampanniething, and the Queen image is from 

Kindred Stamps Travel set (limited editions)

I made multiple of these with 2 different sentiments.  That Union Jack die, also from Kindred Stamps,

And when I line these up it reminded me of the streets lined with the flags along the street with the Palace in the background.  
Colours I used with my copic markers were
Crown YR23 Y15 Y11
Hair C3 C1
Dress C5 C3 C1
YR23 Y15 Y11
Sash B37 B14 B06
Skin E00 E21 E95
E37 E35 E31

I did add some wink of stella onto her dress, shoes and crown, but as usual it does not photograph well.  
Happy crafting!

Finally found some time to play along this week.  And, again, I have gone with the Christmas theme. 

I made this card for one of the classes I teach.  I have used a Pink and Main stamp set called
Beachy Christmas. 
Kept the traditional colours for the theme and added the yellow to symbolize the sun.  I did cut the palm tree into 2 pieces so it extended above the circle/polaroid motif.
I did add the little present holding crab for a little fun element.  
Over here in Australia our Christmas's are smack bang in the middle of summer.  We love when we can make summer feeling Xmas cards instead wintery ones as this suits us better.  I am sure I will be making more using this set.  
I think I will make a few more of these to add to my stall.  You can always PM me on Facebook for any purchases (if you don't have time to make them yourself! )
Happy crafting!

Penny time again.  And this time, I got to play with an image from
and it is called 


Love how this turned out.  As we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in Australia I thought I would add this cutie to my diary.  
I love these country colours so much.  And jeans blue is my favourite combo.  This girl is in the place where I currently like to be....in garden.

 Hi!  I am back with another project for Digi Doodle Studios

 Each month I get to choose any image from the shop.  This time around I chose to use an image I actually bought. 

Koala - ified is a group of images and being an Aussie, I love using them! There are many said sets in the Pairable section under Digi images.

And who would not like to receive a koala for a baby card.  

Love making pop up cards and this is just perfect for this little guy to be hanging out in his tree in one.  
Honestly they are easy to colour.  And I love working in grey scale.  I used my T numbered Copic markers.  

Note - you will have to be quick to grab Digi Doodle Images as they are closing their site at the end of October to concentrate on their physical stamps.  
So don't dily daly.  
Happy crafting!

APTTC September


We have two sponsors this month.  I got to work with 

And here is my project using Bauble Gnome

I went a little textural with this one.  Grabbed what textures I had in my stash and just randomly added them to the 2 corners in different colours.  Santa is just hanging out in between showing you his bauble.  LOL

I really love Connie's images.  They are clean, simple and cute as. 

Don't forget to play along with us on the challenge page.  Check us out on facebook and check out Connie Fong's FB and Etsy shop.  You won't regret (but your bank balance might...hehe.
