Hi There Crafters!


Ruby Looking Pretty is one of 7 brand new images available from Polkadoodles right now!

I have coloured Ruby with markers.  My papers are from the Eden collection, and my sentiment from the Winnie Celebrations 2 collection.

I've used a few dies - for the heart balloons, the camera and the tag.  I've added a mini film strip, lace, a doily, an assortment of flowers and a few random pearls dotted around.

Ruby has been making quite an appearance on our FaceBook pages, so be sure to pop over and join us there to get lots of ideas.

You can find the whole Ruby range here

Thanks for popping by!

Hello and welcome!

We have a brand new challenge starting at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges today, and we have 2 great prizes up for grabs:

is giving away a $15 gift certificate to their store, and 

is giving away 4 digi images of the winner's choice.

This week I have a Fred She Said image to show you.  I absolutely love pansies, so it was a real treat to use this image.  It is called Tea Cup Pansies, and I have coloured it with markers.  I started by printing out the image 3 times, so that I could layer it up with puffy pads, to give the image even more depth. 

 I have created a pocket on my base card, embossing the top and bottom pieces with Sizzix embossing folders, and then giving the bottom piece a curvy border with a Spellbinders cut & emboss border die.  The tag was also cut using a Spellbinders die.

The sentiment is a Simone Clay stamp, and the butterfly is Mont Marte.

You can pop back to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration this week, or visit one of our great sponsors, by clicking on their logos above.

Good luck!

Hi Everybody!

We have a fabulous new challenge starting at Passion for Promarkers today!  Karen has chosen your theme, and she'd like you to use buttons or bows on your creation.

We're being sponsored by
 this week, and they're giving away a £10 voucher to their store!

I'm super excited to show you my creation this week!  My card evolved the more I thought about it!  

I chose to showcase Sketchy Flower Frames.  I couldn't decide which one I liked best, so I decided to use all 4.  I then thought that I didn't really want to make a 'serious' floral card, because I've made a few of those recently, so to add a bit of fun, I added 3 little fairies to the flower frames: Flutterby Fairy to the top 2 frames, and Fairy and Unicorn and Sweet Fairy to the bottom 2 frames.  

I have created a garden fence with frames cut out of it, through which you can see the field beyond.  The beautiful flowers in the field are poking through the frames in the fence, and weeny fairies are playing in the frames.  The images are all coloured with Promarkers.  I've added Stickles to the fairy wings and magic wand.  

The 'fence' paper is from the 49 and Market Sand and Sea pack.  The trees framing and hanging over the fence, were cut on my Cameo, as was the grassy border in front.  The ivy growing up the fence is a border sticker.  The white flowers at the top of the ivy, and those amongst the grassy border are Jenni B.

And last, but not least, I added loads of buttons to the trees, to meet our theme, along with a few Liquid Pearl dots.

I hope you'll play along with us this week!  All you have to do is use your Winsor & Newton markers and follow the theme.  You certainly don't need to go quite as nuts as I did, adding your buttons or bows - even one will do!  Easy Peasy!
