Lady of the Stars

Hi Everyone

My turn to showcase a gorgeous Digi stamp from Crafts and Me.  This week I have Lady of the Stars to share with you, she is of course designed by Sara Burrier.

I have coloured her with my Copic's and then I've added some stickles to her wings to make them all sparkly.  I put some Liquid pearl dots on the string of stars and I have stamped a little butterfly stamp with versamark ink and then dusted over with some Perfect Pearls powder.  It looks so shimmery and sparkly in real life, so sorry I couldn't capture it in my photo.  Anyway here she is I hope you love her as much as me:-)

Stamp: Crafts and Me Lady of the Stars Digi Image
Paper: Pink Paislee 
Embellishments: Cheese Cloth, Stickles, Flowers, Lace, Metal Corner, K&Company Tag, Authentic sticker, Perfect Pearls, Liquid Pearls, Seam Binding and Ribbon.  A Small Butterfuly stamp from Prima and a Tim Holtz Stamp which is under the cheesecloth....

Magnolia Down Under Challenge #135

Good Morning everyone

It's Sunday and well it's time for a new Magnolia Down Under Challenge.  This week we have an all time favourite colour combo of mine...

Orange, Pink and White

Yum Yum, you can have as much or as little of each colour as you like - we just have to be able to see all three!! and of course you can add in some other colours too if you want!! 

I've used, Tilda with Daisy this week, she is soooo cute, and a cute sentiment from the your so special collection.  So here she is - hope you love her as much as me:-)

About a week or so ago, my BFF Kylie had a great Tutorial on how she colours Tilda's face... so I've followed the directions and I think she has turned out so awesome.  Some people don't like the nose bridge look, or some might even say that Tilda's face is half sunburnt or that she looks like a puppy or goofy!!! Each to their own I say... I think she looks cute how ever you choose to colour - don't you agree??

Anyway can't wait to see what you guys do with our yummy colour combo... and don't forget to check out the awesome work the rest of the DT have done... it's really inspriational!!

Stamps: Sweet Crazy Love Tilda with Daisy, Your so Special Sentiment
Dies: Magnolia Doo Hickey's
Paper: Magnolia - Your a Winner collection
Embellishments: Flowers, Prima Lace, Ribbon, Charm, String, Stickles, and Thickers
Colour: Copic and a touch of Atyou Spica in Clear

Till next time
Lots of Hugs

Shades of Spring at Crafts and Me

Hey Everyone

It's time for a New challenge at Crafts and Me and this week's gorgeous theme is Shades of Spring...

Well I guess it wont be long before Spring hits - but for me - it's Autumn!!! 

So for my card this week, I have used some really gorgeous Forest Fairy Digi papers that are now available at Crafts and Me - trust me - these papers are divine!!! I've just printed mine out on normal A4 paper and trimmed it up. I must say I was concerned on how the paper would print... like do I need to have special paper.... well no - just plain old ordinary paper!!!  I've also used a Hannah Lynn image - Moon Glow - I love this one, she is so beautiful.  Anyway Here is my card, I hope you love it as much as me!!

As always we can't wait to see what you girls make, you really are an inspiration to us all!!

Paper Play Critters

Hi Everyone, this week at Paper Play challenges we are looking for Critters.... how cute!!  Apparently, this is the definition of a Critter 

1. A Critter is a living animal 
2. usually a domestic animal - horse - mule - cow.... 
3. A person ???? Mmmm that one is kinda interesting isn't it?

In Thailand, although I can't be 100% for sure, because I haven't been there, but .... Elephants are kinda Domesticated... aren't they??? They use Elephants for all sorts of things there:-)   Anyway that's my excuse for using an Elephant as a Critter.... it's just a very large critter!!! Here is my card I hope you love it as much as me!!

My image is from Magnolia - Tilda and Edwin's Pet Animal.... cute huh?  I don't have any of these animal ones but I do love this Elephant.  My Balloon is from the Your so Special Collection and it's one that I have chopped out after stamping the Balloon (the stamp is actually a bunch of balloons that you use for a background) Anyway then I threaded up some yummy The Twinery Twine and sewed it on to the paper so that it looks like the Elephant is holding the string!! That bit turned out really great I think!! The Paper is from My Minds Eye and the Black with the dots is some really cool Washi tape I got from Ebay:-)  Thanks for looking and as always we can't wait to see what you make this week:-)

Some Scrap booking Layouts

Hi Everyone

Hope your all having a Fabulous Valentines Day with maybe some flowers or cute gifts from your precious loved ones!!

I thought it might be time to show you some more pages that I have done of Ruby for her Scrapbook. This first page is of her toes, she wasn't very old, about 6 weeks, I look at her feet now and then at this picture and OMGOSH... I can't believe that she was that small.  Even though she wasn't a small baby - in fact she was huge 10 pounds 2 oz.. or 4.5kg... A whooper!!

So this one was taken last year in Winter on a Sunday Morning.  She was playing with her Dad like most Sunday morning's and well next thing she knew his socks her on her feet.... I think she is thinking.... "what are you doing Dad??????" "Okay I'll wear these silly socks of yours so you can take your silly photo" LOL

So at 6 months, it was time to give Ruby some food.... well I couldn't not capture this moment in her life when she first had something other than Milk to eat.... hahha I love these series of photo's.... the Oh.... what's that and the shiver/shake she had going and then... mmmmm might try that again just to make sure!!! So Funny:-) 

And this one is in the backyard last summer, she still wasn't walking or crawling but she loved her splish splash in the shell pool!! How 12 months she has changed.  This year we have been to the local pool heaps and the Beach - she loves it!!

Anyway there you go, I hope you love my cute pages as much as me.... 

Till next time

Paper Play is getting into Shape

Card shapes that is.... not fitness... LOL

This week at Paper Play challenges we are looking for Shaped cards - no square's or rectangles allowed!!  I've cut out an oval on my cricut and the a slightly smaller one for the patterned paper.  I also made a backing oval as well - so it's a card... not one that stand's up very well, as you can see from my lop sided pic..... even though it's on a stand... it's still lop sided!! Oh well - turn your head slightly to the left and then it won't be will it!!! LOL

I've coloured up a Saturated Canary image - so cute and yep it is actually from Krista's Etsy Shop. Krista only sells Saturated Canary's via her Esty Shop.  There are a few people out their ripping of Krista's idea's and copying them.... So not on....

Anyway enough about that... here is my card - hope you love it as much as me!!!

My Cute papers are from My Minds Eye, and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I made the kite myself using my MFT die.... so cute!!!  I've had my machine serviced so it's going great now... so I used it on my card... hehehehe... 

Thanks for looking and I look forward to seeing your shapely cards.... we are being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp too this week... how cool!!!

Till then

Crafts and Me

Hi Everyone, how are we all?

Crafts and Me is having a release day today.... yep it's the first day of the month, so that means new digis for us to play with, but the card I'm sharing today isn't a newbie... heheheh tricked ya's 

This one is called Kissy Fish and it's by Hannah Lynn.  I've coloured her up with my copic's and I decided to use some colours I don't use often which is apricot... I thought she would look nice with some red and green, and then I gave her some black hair instead of brown!! I always do brown hair don't I ??? anyway I have some N copic's which are kinda new, so I guess that's why I've always done brown.... anyway here is my card - I hope you like it!!

So do you think she looks kinda Spanish? I dunno, maybe it's just me... but I think she does:-) On my card I have some cheese cloth which I sprayed with glimmer mist in suede - looks cool doesn't it, My lace I think is from Prima - but it could be Webster's or May Art's.... I can never remember LOL.  The flowers are of course from Wild Orchid Roses, and so is the seam binding! My cameo is a purchase from ebay, and the washi tape is by Tim Holtz!! The Paper is from Basic Grey's Little Black Dress 6x6 Paper Pad!! 

Till next time:-)
