Hello!

Now don't forget to pop to get to the main blog and grab that DISCOUNT CODE for use for TODAY ONLY! You have til midnight tonight to grab a bargain.

Now onto our new challenge at Digi Choosday Challenge - as you know our challenges are always Anything Goes but the design team like to have a theme and yip - the design team haven't got out of the Christmas spirit yet.  So this time I am here to showcase some of the wonderful collection Picknix Nordic Winter.




For this challenge I decided to make a quick and gorgeous card and matching tag.  A complete gift set.  This is a precoloured image and makes such a beautiful quick card.



I decided to decoupage the tag image for a little extra impact and leave the main card with the larger image of santa for the wow factor.  I'm quite happy with how they turned out.

Now head on over back over to the main blog to see what else the design team have come up with, there is lots of inspiration for you to look at.

Remember to come join in the fun with us, you can use any medium you like and the theme is anything goes.

Design Sheets..........

Hello

It is time for a new challenge at Digi Choosday Challenge - as you know our challenges are always Anything Goes but the design team like to have a theme and this week we are using my new favourite thing, design sheets!

REMEMBER to get to the main blog and grab that DISCOUNT CODE for use for TODAY ONLY! You have til midnight tonight to grab a bargain.

This week I decided to play with a release from April 'Horace & Boo' Collection. You can see the tons of stuff in this collection here.

I used design sheet 10 which is available to buy here by itself, or as part of the main collection.


I made a 7x7 card using a Kraft card blank and added two other papers to the card as well as the design sheet, the papers are found in the collection or as paper bundles here in paper bundle 3 and paper bundle 5.

I love the  banner and the grass and the trees in this design sheet. Just so much fun and perfect for the image.

So hop over to the main blog to see what else the design team have come up with, there is lots of inspiration for you to look at.

Remember to come join in the fun with us, you can use any medium you like and the theme is anything goes.

Winter wishes..........

Hello!

It is time for a new challenge at Digi Choosday Challenge - as you know our challenges are always Anything Goes but the design team like to have a theme and it's been very difficult for us to let go of that Christmas feeling!

REMEMBER to get to the main blog and grab that DISCOUNT CODE for use for TODAY ONLY! You have til midnight tonight to grab a bargain.

I love the smell of Christmas baking and cooking and I think gingerbread men (and ladies) are on my mind too much for it only be August! So to try and stomp out the craving, I reached for my Baked With Love Collection.

For this card, I used an embellishment and turned it into a card. I printed it out as large as possible on my Silhouette onto a good weight cardstock. Then I printed it out three more times.


I printed it out three times in order to be able to decoupage the scene. I love these kind of cards, where the embellishment or the character is the main image.



I hope you can see the decoupage layers, it really gives it more character and so easy to do!

So hop over to the main blog to see what else the design team have come up with, there is lots of inspiration for you to look at.

Remember to come join in the fun with us, you can use any medium you like and the theme is anything goes.

Hope to see you soon!

Christmas.....................

Hello!

It is time for a new challenge at Digi Choosday Challenge - as you know our challenges are always Anything Goes but the design team are still having that Christmas feeling and we aren't even going to apologise for it!

REMEMBER to get to the main blog and grab that DISCOUNT CODE for use for TODAY ONLY! You have til midnight tonight to grab a bargain.

So this week for Christmas designs I was drawn to the wonderful collection of Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun, which you can see here. This is a fabulous collection. Today I concentrated on one of the embellishments the cute little Robin.

He comes as a precoloured image and I paired him into the garland border in order for him to be framed.


How cute is he? I adore him.

I used papers from the same collection - you can find a breakdown of all the Festive Fun collection here.



Pop over to the main blog to see what else the design team have come up with, there is lots of inspiration for you to look at.

Remember to come join in the fun with us, you can use any medium you like and the theme is anything goes.

Christmas in July..........

Hello

It is time for a new challenge at Digi Choosday Challenge - as you know our challenges are always Anything Goes but the design team like to have a theme and this week we are using the theme of Christmas!!!!!!! Whooo Hooo!

REMEMBER to get to the main blog and grab that DISCOUNT CODE for use for TODAY ONLY! You have til midnight tonight to grab a bargain.

So this week the design team are thinking Christmas or winter colours. Well I decided to jump right into Christmas - why wouldn't you I ask? I bought the Winnie Winterland Collection last year when it came out and I didn't use it once. Shame on me. Looking through the collection for this weeks challenge, I seriously don't know how I didn't use this. It is JAM packed full of goodies.

Now if you were here a few weeks ago, you would have seen my new found delight on design sheets. Well Christmas isn't any different, I used this FAB design sheet from Winnie Winterland big kahuna Bundle, I used design sheet 2 which you can find here if you want it individually.


As you can see, I made a 7x7 card, on a kraft blank card, then I cut out all the elements of the design sheet on my Silhouette and then just had fun with the layout. I adore design sheets now. They are quick and super easy to make great cards with.


Pop over to the main blog to see what else the design team have come up with, there is lots of inspiration for you to look at.

Winnie Christmas Wreath............

Hi everyone!

So something a little different from me today, I have stamped, yes, a stamp which needed ink and everything and the reason is - Winnie Christmas Wreath Stamp, exclusive as 'Stamp of the Month' - this stamp will NEVER be available as a digi stamp.

Now as you can see, the sizes of each stamp are given, she really is a good sized stamp and oh so very cute.

You need to pre-order the stamp before the end of July to get the special price and then orders will go out towards the end of August. Plenty of time for you to get this gorgeous image on your Christmas makes.

So a little bit about the new Stamp of the Month club - each month Polkadoodles will issue a new one-off stamp, which will be available at a special pre-order price.  Once the pre-order closes, the price then increases also.  Pre-orders will mean that there is about a 4 week delay between ordering and shipping.  Remember - you will NEVER get this amazing image in a digi format, so if you want this little cutie, you need to order!

I stamped out my image of Winnie, she comes in at 3.8x4.5inches so it's a hefty size. I decided a scalloped circle was the way to go. I coloured her with my copic markers and it was so much fun.

I made a 8x8 card, now the reason I went large isn't because of the stamp size, it's because I went large on my scalloped circle.

I used the following markers for Winnie:

Skin: E000, E00, E02, E21, E11, E04, R20 (cheeks)
Hair: E31, E33, E35
Hat, Coat, Boots, Ribbon: R32, R35, R37, R39
Dress, Scarf: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99
Wreath: G21, G94, G99, R37, R39, YR14, YR18
Door: E31, E35, E25, E29
Robin: E13, E15, E18, R35, R32, Y35 Blender

Now the little Robin stamp is a wee bonus and he comes in at the size of 1.2x1.2 inches. You can put him anywhere, or not use him at all. I decided to make him an accent to my main card. 

I used the same colours for this stamp as I did with the little Robin in the scene above, only I added in E15 for his breast.

The papers are from the Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun Collection which you can see here.

I added a little bit of ribbon and I think she came out lovely! 

So I hope you like my inspiration.

Thanks for popping by! 

Hugs

Thank You

Hello!

It is time for a new challenge at Digi Choosday Challenge - as you know our challenges are always Anything Goes but the design team like to have a theme and this week we are using the theme of Thank You.

REMEMBER to get to the main blog and grab that DISCOUNT CODE for use for TODAY ONLY! You have til midnight tonight to grab a bargain.

This week I decided to have a perusal of one of the lovely new collection that Nikky has been spoiling us with and this is the L'il Miss Sugarpops Collection.

I popped into L'il Miss Sugarpops #1 full collection and played with Cutie Pie, however, if you just want the singular image, you can find that here.

I made a 6x6 card using papers from the collection and the black and white digi image, I coloured with Copic Markers and I LOVE her. The sentiment is also from the same collection.


Isn't she the cutest with her little feet dangling over the edge. So cute! I have absolutely no idea why my skin looks like a solid line. It doesn't look like that in real life and I am unsure why it's coming up like that, quite disappointing but I have taken the photo several times and it is still doing it. Sorry about that :(


Pop over to the main blog to see what else the design team have come up with for your inspiration, there are better pictures than mine that is for sure as well as some gorgeous projects!

Remember to come join in the fun with us, you can use any medium you like and the theme is anything goes, as long as it is made by you.

Thanks for stopping by!
