Good morning paper crafters!

We have two fantastic sponsors at Penny's this week:


Some of the older images at The Paper Shelter actually come as a set, and the value for money is astounding!  This adorable giraffe is part of a set called Giraffes on Holiday. It includes 4 different giraffe images, and as usual, The Paper Shelter images include pre-coloured images and paper in the set!

This giraffe is actually meant to be a mummy, and is a Halloween image, but I decided to change him up a little, and use him to make a Get Well Soon card.

This is the original image:

As you can see, I blotted out the details on his pumpkin candy bag, added a cross, and changed it into a medical bag.

I coloured the image with markers

My papers and letter tiles are from the Echo Park Fall Is In The Air pack.  The plasters are Merci stickers, and all the other medical goodies are EK Success stickers.


Since the team got to work with this fabulous set this week, there's quite a variety to look at on the challenge blog this week, so be sure to pop back for a look.

Thanks so much for popping in for a look today!

Good Morning Paper Shelter lovers!

It's Wednesday again, and that means a new challenge, and new opportunity to win fantastic Paper Shelter images!

Our theme for the week is:

In other words, we would like you to use an image with a human face.

I've gone with Enchantress, because she is dead centre, face-on.  I've cropped the image down so that I could turn her from forest goddess into night-on-the-town beauty.  I just love her outfit!

I've coloured the image with markers and then cut it out with a blade, to match the shape of the frame around her, which is a Make It Crafty laser cut.  I coloured the frame with markers, and then sprayed it with Bo Bunny Glimmer Spray to give it a bit of a sparkle.

My papers and the 3D stickers are from the Bo Bunny Life In Color collection.  I've used Spellbinders dies to cut the papers out.  The beautiful big pendant is Tim Holtz.  I've popped corner gem designs in as well as gems on the image for her buttons.  I've also added a few glittery gel stars, and flowers by 49 and Market and Green Tara.

Up for grabs this week is our usual fantastic prize!  You could win a $30 store voucher if you've used a Paper Shelter product (it could be a black & white digi, pre-coloured image or paper), or 3 digis 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.

If you know anything about me, you know I love cats!

This adorable pair is from Digi Doodle Studios.  They're called Party Cats.

I have coloured the image with markers and cut it out using a Creative Dies wonky stitches die.  The two little tags and sentiment oval were also cut with Creative Dies dies.  

My papers are from the First Edition Spring Drop pack.  The green one was cut using a Spellbinders die.  I've inked all my edges.

Other than two bows, which I made with wide sheer ribbon, all I've added to this card are Dress It Up buttons.

I adore dolphins!

I think everyone loves dolphins, but I had the privilege to not only swim with dolphins while we were on a Caribbean cruise many, many years ago, (the day I fell in love with them), but I also lived right on the beachfront along the Dolphin Coast for several years.  We had dolphins swim past every single day and I NEVER got tired of seeing them!  I have THOUSANDS of photographs of dolphins!

My family would probably describe me as a little obsessed, to be honest, because for 9 years living there, every single time I saw dolphins swimming by, I would shout out, ' DOLPHINS!!!' then rush outside with my camera.  I just didn't want to miss them, and didn't want anybody else to miss them either.  What a privilege!

This gorgeous image is one of the brand new releases at Digi Doodle Studios.  It's called Malibu Rain.  

I've doubled up and flipped one of the images so that I could have two of them facing each other.  I've coloured them with markers and added in an ocean behind them.  I've used a Sizzix heart die to cut them out, and to cut the other heart behind the image.

My papers are from the Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood pack.  I wanted to keep the papers 'softer' than the image, so it would pop.  My flowers are Green Tara and 49 and Market.

I've added several laser cuts: the bubbles and seaweed are Scrapaholics; the little heart shaped reeds on the top left are 2Crafty; the sentiment is KaiserCraft.  I've sprayed them all with white Gesso.    The white swirls are Anna Belle embellishments.  I've also added a strip of white wispy stuff and tiny shells collected on our beachfront.

The day I fell in love:

My dolphins:
