DIGI DOODLE STUDIOS LEILANI


Are you feeling Spring in the air yet??  Where I live, we're just beginning to feel the temperature drop a little, and Autumn is on it's way!  

This sweet image from Digi Doodle Studios is called Leilani.  I have coloured the image with markers and used a Spellbinders die to cut her out.  

My paper is from a freebie pack that came with a craft magazine.  I've added a strip of lace and a soft pink ribbon and pre-made bow.  The doily was created by my mum.

The letters 'joy' are foam stickers by American Crafts, and the flowers are all Jenni B stickers




Don't forget we have our monthly challenge on the blog, where the theme for the month is to use a Spring colour palette.  Click below to see what we've created to inspire you this month.


We also have a monthly Anything Goes with a Digi Doodle challenge in our FaceBook group, so be sure to share all your Digi Doodle Studios creations with us there.  You'll get to see loads of inspiration in the group too!

Thanks for popping in to see my card!

PENNY'S PAPER-CRAFTY CHALLENGE #421


Good Morning Everybody!


This week at Penny's, we have a fabulous prize up for grabs, from:



I have used elements from both the pre-coloured and uncoloured versions of Emma The Mermaid on my card.  I have coloured Emma herself and the two seahorses with markers.  The rest of the image is from the pre-coloured set.  I typed up the sentiment myself though.

My papers are from the Bo Bunny Down By The Sea pack.  I've used a Creative Dies die for the tag and added a dolphin charm and a strip of cheesecloth.  I've used a Magnolia die for the bubbles and a Find IT Trading frame die for the bottom corner.  

My flowers are 49 and Market, and there's another piece of cheesecloth beneath the image.  

As usual, the rest of the team have created stunning cards with more images from our fantastic sponsor this week, so use our banner at the top of the page to head back to the blog to check them out.  

Here are a few close-ups of mine:

THE PAPER SHELTER CHALLENGE #374: DIGITAL IMAGE


Good Morning Paper Shelter lovers!


This week at The Paper Shelter, we'd like you to use a DIGITAL IMAGE.  

I have used this super fun image called Venus Flytrap.  I have coloured the image with markers and cut it out using a Poppy Crafts stitched edge die.

My papers are from the DCWV The Guy Stack.  I typed up the sentiment and cut it out with another Poppy Crafts die.

The gardening goodies are all Jolee's.  I've also added a few pearls.


As usual our winner this week can win a $30 gift voucher, if you've used a Paper Shelter product on your entry - it could be the black and white digi, the pre-coloured image or the paper, or 3 digi images of your choice, if you've used another brand.  You can enter the challenge up to 3 times, provided you've used a Paper Shelter product on at least one of them.





Have fun crafting this week!  Thanks so much for popping in for a look!

PATTY


This sweet image is from Cute As A Button.  It's called St. Patty's Day Parade.  She is this month's FaceBook Progressive Challenge image in the Cute As A Button FaceBook Group.  I originally coloured the image with a St. Patrick's Day theme, as you can see below, but I wasn't happy.  I had coloured the flag with the colours reversed, so that they were in the right order as you look at the image, but it made me uncomfortable that it meant the colours were actually in the wrong order for an Irish flag, were the flag real and blowing in the wind.  I decided to reprint my image and colour up the flag and balloon without the St. Patrick's Day theme, and turn it into a birthday card instead.  I then stuck the new flag and balloon onto the previous versions.

I have coloured the image with markers and added pearls to her headband and shoes.  My papers are from the Pink & Main My Heart pack.  I've added a broad ribbon and bow, and embellishments from Making Memories.

DIGI DOODLE STUDIOS LINDA'S CONFECTIONERY


I have the honour of being the Spotlighted Design Team member at Digi Doodle Studios this month, and that means that Dina has created this image, inspired by me!  I am so completely overwhelmed by this, that I just cried when Dina sent the image to me.  

The image is called Linda's Confectionery.  I love to bake, and biscuits (American cookies 😉) are what I'm most famous for.  I will often bake just for the love of baking, and then look for people to give my biscuits away to: friends, family members, the postman, anybody really!  When my children were still at school, I was called 'The Biscuit Lady' by the other parents 🤣

Another thing I love to make is chocolate truffles - and I do this only at Christmas time.  These don't normally last long enough to be given away!

And of course, Dina has also included my two precious fur babies, WHICH MAKES ME SO HAPPY!!

Dina has asked us what we particularly like about Digi Doodles, and my answer has always been the same: Each one oozes 'soul' and happiness.  She has certainly captured my soul in this one!


My papers for this card are from the 13@rts Vintage Summer pack.  I have distressed and inked the edges.  I've used an adorable Spellbinders paw print heart die.  My flowers are Prima and Green Tara.  I've also added a strip of lace and a few pearls.




If you'd like to find out more about me, or any of the other Design Team members at Digi Doodle Studios, you can pop to the Studio Spotlight.

Thank you SO MUCH to Dina for this beautiful image 💖

PENNY'S PAPER-CRAFTY CHALLENGE #420: ANYTHING GOES


Hello Everybody!


This week at Penny's we have 2 fantastic sponsors:


Giving a $10 store voucher

and

Giving away 3 digi images

I have used an adorable image from Imagine That, called It MOOOst Be Love to make an Anniversary card.  I have coloured the image with markers and drawn in a background for them.  The sentiment is one of several included in the set.  

My papers are from the First Edition Love Letters pack.  I have used Sizzix dies to cut out the hearts and another to cut out the image and offset paper behind it.  I've mounted the hearts at varying levels using puffy pads.  I've added a ribbon and bow and a few enamel hearts.



To see what the rest of the team are showcasing this week, you can click on our banner above, or head straight to one of our fantastic sponsors for the week, by clicking on their logos.
