Tabitha's Puppy Hugs

 

Back again with another great image from 
and the image I used this month is

Tabitha's Puppy Hugs

Now my eldest girl loves little dogs, so this image was just for her.  I covered a notebook for her to carry in her handbag.  You can never have too many notebooks!
I cut a patterned piece of paper to fit the front cover.  Then printed out the picture, mounted it on some darker grey cardstock to fit with the patterned paper.  Coloured the image to match the colours used.  Added a little leaf image and some clear sequins (some are hiding under the watermark! lol)
The sentiment was perfect for the "note"book cover.  
Adding your own touch to something that is already made, sometimes is enough.  We don't always need to start each project from scratch.  I love covering simple notebooks.  You can customize the colour and the images to suit yourself or a recipient.  
Thank you for joining me here today.  Stop by the FB group for lots more inspiration.  
Happy crafting!

"Who" is having fun?

 "Who" is having fun?

ME!!!

I am currently prepping for our local Popfest at the local high school..  The students run this event as part of their course and are marked accordingly.  So I liked to think that I am helping them in my own little way by having my stall.  

Here is a set of bookmarks I made using 2 of my favourite Kindred Stamp sets. 

It's About Time

I Need More Space


Love making bookmarks.  Some people have no need for a card but a bookmark can always come in handy.  
I will have pop up cards, normal cards, and notebooks plus a new item I am stocking that is a show surprise.  
I will show more of my sets as I make them.  So thanks for stopping by.  
Popfest is July 16 & 17
Happy crafting!!

Sketch Saturday #702

 


time again. I have not done the last couple of challenges as life got in the way, but hopefully now I can keep up with the challenges each fortnight.  
Love this weeks sketch. 


And here is my take on it!

Now you need to have a little think about this one.  It could either be the same actor plays both characters, before and after his trouble time of life OR it could be black and white, where movies first started to the full blown colour and special effects of today.  Take your pick!
Also the sentiment is one I made in my Word program.  The Broadway font for the left character and then the Avengers font for the right character.  
The paper in the background is a poppy crafts one. Adds a real nice contrasting background.  
As simple as this card is, I really like it.  I added the 2 embellishments, top left, of the left character.  I coloured the gems in read to balance the images out.  
The images came from Kindred Stamps, Golden Age but the right one is from a limited edition set.  Once a year or so, they sometimes pull them out for a vault release.  Just keep your eyes open.  
Thank you for dropping in on my little corner of the net.  
Happy crafting!

Our sponsor for this challenge is

and the images we used are 


These are really great sets from LMM.  So many images to play with.  I chose this little guy/gal.  Coloured them up in the pink and white to suit for Breast Cancer.  A little bookmark to use for your novel, or planner/diary.  Even stick a magnet on the back and put in on your fridge! The bookmark is actually a die from My Favorite Things.
Love little bears and this one is no exception. 
Thank you for popping by.

APTTC June

 




A Perfect Time To Craft challenge is here again.  This month we have 2 great sponsors. 
I got to work with 
and the image I was lucky enough to use was 
When I saw this image it made me laugh.  The mix of cuteness of Hello Kitty and the horrifying character of Freddy Nightmare!  

I kind of went a little dark with this one.  I used the Tim Holtz embossing folder on silver cardstock with some black distress paint to dirty it up.  Then I used a Kindred Stamps Spooky Tree Die.  Cut it out twice and only used a part of the second one for the top corner.  Sponged on a little white ink to add a little contrast on the branches.  
The sentiment is also from Kindred Stamps, The Horror  White embossed on black cardstock worded perfect for the look of this card.  
Finally coloured the kitty in the appropriate colours for his character.  He looks so good!  
Thanks for popping in and don't forget to play along for your chance to win a prize.  
Happy Crafting!

And one of our awesome sponsors is 

and the image I used is 


I find these images are just perfect for my planner/diary.  And in doing these images like this I can print them bigger so colouring is made a lot easier in the tiniest parts  of the image.  
I was going to colour the image in the planner colours like last time but chose to use soft colours then a bright bold red for the daisies.  
And the soft colours I used on her wings I used to layer in the background. Just finished it off nicely.  
Thank you for stopping by.

It is that time again!


is a sponsor this time around. 
And the image I got to use was 


I love this image so much.  So cute.  I kept the card fairly simple  And, yes, I turned it into a baby card  Could not help myself.  I did make a baby blue version too but I liked this colour for today's share.  
The vine on  either side is an old Heartfelt Creations set I had and the sentiment is a Taylored Expressions set.
