Guest Designer Spot over at The Crazy Challenge

Having been picked as a Top 3 recently over at The Crazy Challenge I had the opportunity to be a guest designer for 2 of their challenges, well it would have been rude not to join in!  So this fortnight the challenge is 'We Love Animals' and it gave me a great opportunity to play with the Cricut, To You From Me cartridge and using Kraft cs and patterned Kraft Funday papers from MME I made this owl pillow box,  I think it's a cutie don't you?

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #183 ~ Go Green

Hi, I hope you have all had a good weekend, it's time for a brand new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and this week our host is Judy and she has chosen the theme 'Go Green' and wants to see your projects using mainly green or as it's nearly St Patrick's Day you could make a project to celebrate that.  

I recently bought the Cricut cartridge  'To You From Me' and a scoring tool so I've been busy playing with it and decided to make a gift card holder.  The paper is from First Edition 'Hideaway' then I added a punched butterfly, die cut sentiment, some gems, raffia string and wooden beads.  Can see me making a few of these they are such a great way to give gift cards.

Crafty Catz Challenge #359 ~ Anything Goes

Oops, sorry running late this week with just about everything, except work!  I've even picked up an extra late shift today with a sleep in, oh well at least I'm on holiday for 2 weeks after that! LOL  Anyway it's Friday so it's time for a new challenge over at Crafty Catz and the theme is 'Anything Goes' and this week our wonderful Janette has set the DT with the extra twist of making something with 'thoughts of spring', lovely challenge and we have an awesome and generous sponsor this week too


prize...4 images of winners choice

The DT were very generously given some images to play along with.  I used the beautiful 'Dandelions and butterflies'.  As the twist was thoughts of spring I played around with the image in PS Elements 5 and changed the colour before printing out to a shade of green that worked with the papers I chose which are from Raspberry Road Designs 'Cherrylimeade'.  A little ribbon from my stash and then some yellow cs and used some new dies to cut the dandelions and the sentiment panel and there it is.  Really like how this one turned out.

Open Minded Crafting Fun #14 ~ Flowering in February

Lucinda ~ Simply B Stamps

Just wanted to pop on and share the project I made for the Progressive Challenge over at Simply B Stamps Fan Page.  This months image is the beautiful 'Lucinda' and the challenge was 'pastel goth' colour scheme, so black and at least one pastel colour but can be more.   
Image may contain: shoes and text

I decided to make an insert panel for the hessian bag I use to take my meals to work in.  I have coloured 'Lucinda' with copics, chameleons and SN pencils, papers are from Raspberry Road Designs 'My Baby Love Girl' kit which I then teamed up with black mat and die cut accents.  Sentiment is cut on the Cricut and I finished off with some flowers and Card Candi from my stash.  A great challenge and I love how she turned out.

Crafty Catz Challenge #357 ~ Anything Goes

Good morning, I hope you are all well, I have been dealing with a particularly irksome cold for over a week now and I just can't seem to shift it, hey ho that's the way it goes sometimes. Anyway you're not here to hear about my woes!  It's Friday so it's time for a new challenge over at Crafty Catz and the theme is Anything Goes with our fabulous Caz setting the DT twist of 3 designer papers.  We have a wonderful sponsor this week too

PRIZE...3 IMAGES FROM SHOP

The DT were given some fab images to play along with.  I have used an image from our sponsor that I won a while back called SkyLynn. I have coloured her with chameleons and SN sparkles and then digitally paper pieced her kimono using a paper from Raspberry Road Designs kit called Asian Dreams.  I then used 2 more papers from the kit and digitally cut away some of the cream background then overlaid that paper over the the other paper and added some dropped shadow before printing out.  I matted the image onto some gold mirriboard then cut out a fan and birdcage from the mirriboard and finished off with a little die cut bird and peel off sentiment.
