A La Naturale....

November 30th 2015

Sharing a recently made pocket letter for an Aussie Pocket Letter Group Swap and it is also an inspiration post at the SLS Lines Blog as I used a great image from the SLS Lines Etsy Store along with some great nature digital papers also from the store!

The theme was "a la natural" - I loved how this turned out and my partner was really happy to receive it which is the most important thing!!

I used natural colours along with some soft natural greens, added matching washi tape to the spine with some twine. Hessian, skeleton leaves, muslin cloth, leaves and butterflies decorated the ATC's in the pockets. I coloured the digi Elf Girl with Copic markers, fussy cut her and adhered her to the front of the pockets.

Goodbye to "Sweet Pea Stamps" Blog Hop....

November 25th 2015

Welcome to the Sweet Pea Stamps Blog Hop!

Image by Sandra Caldwell
This hop is from a loyal group of Sweet Pea stamp fans who want to let Lynette know that we appreciate all her hard work bringing us the wonderful stamps in both rubber and digi format over the years.  Thanks so very much for all the wonderful images we have collected from you!

There are some random prizes along the way, as certain blog owners, myself included, have decided to include a prize, so please leave some comments along the way as you see everyone's gorgeous Sweet Pea Stamp creations.


Also, the store closes at the end of the day on the 25th, so if you see some wonderful stamps on this blog hop, today is the last day to get them, so please drop by the store!

A Cheesy Grin...

November 23rd 2015

I had so much fun creating this journal page with yet another new release image from SLS Lines! And also some new collage elements from Tsunami Rose - a combination of items from 2 DT's I am on!

The big rose labels in the background are the new Tsunami Rose elements and were perfect for using on the background of my journal page.

The "Hand Made With Love" is cut on my Silhouette. And of course I had to colour the image with pink toned Copic Markers!!

Just grin & bear it!!

Sugar Plum Fairy......

November 22nd 2015

A fun tag made using a new release image from SLS Lines and because I wanted to join the current Gecko Galz Customer Challenge "Sugar Plum Fairy" I used lots of bits and pieces of digi patterned papers and collage elements from Gecko Galz - a great way to use scraps!

Image coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut and layered on all the layers LOL!!! Plus added some muslin cloth sprayed with ink sprays, some hessian flowers and twine at the top. Fun!!!!!

If you pop over to the SLS Lines Blog you can see all the DT creations with all the new release images!!!!

Add a Digital Element....

November 21st 2015

A great new challenge for this fortnight at the Spellbinding Stamps Challenge Blog - we would love to see lots of entries this time and remember you can win images from Nikki's Etsy Store just by entering!!!! You don't have to use one of her images but we love it when you do!!!

I've used Nikki's "Copper" digi stamp on tissue paper in the background - I flipped the image so they could be either side of the main image. The main image is from one of Nikki's Digital Collage Sheets - great pre-coloured images - this was from Sheet Number 8 - LOL a perfect match for the digi stamp!!!!

I cut the gears/cogs on my Silhouette and embossed them with gold and maroon embossing powder. Journal page background is paint and ink sprays plus the tissue paper images and a little watch charm to match the theme!!

I really love how this page turned out and it fits perfectly with the digital element theme!!! For more inspiration visit the challenge blog and see what the rest of the DT have created - always amazing creations!

Torn Paper or Edges...

November 20th 2015

A fun new challenge at Wicked Wednesday this week and as you can see from the title of my post it's to use torn paper or tear your edges!! A great sponsor "Sweet Pea Stamps" who are sadly closing down on the 25th November so take advantage of our challenge to win some images before it's too late!!! The image I have used is called "Mermaid with Round Fish" by Molly Harrison - so cute! I've used scrap torn paper that I use to blot when I use my ink sprays - perfect for backgrounds and in this case tearing up, scrunching up and sticking to the ATC backing!!!!

Time for a new monthly challenge at the SLS Lines Blog! And our theme for this month is Autumn/Fall Is In the Air!!! So let's see your creations which reflect this time of the year - images, colours - whatever inspires you! We would love to see you use an SLS Lines image but any creations can be entered in the challenge. You have a month to create so get going LOL!!!

I've used this great Witch on a Pumpkin available at the SLS Lines Etsy Store. She has been coloured with Copic Markers and layered on some great digital patterned papers which are also available at the store!! I layered some hessian fabric and flowers and printed out the "A Bootylicious Harvest" wording on my computer.

The Colour Purple!

November 11th 2015

A great colour challenge this week at the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge Blog and a fabulous sponsor - Nikki Burnette - Spellbinding Stamps - naturally I LOVE Nikki's images (I'm on her DT!!!!)
