April Calendar Pages

April 30th 2013

Just snuck in again with getting my pages done for this month for The Kathryn Wheel Challenge!!
For my pages this month I used a credit card to drag the paint down the pages. I used some new images from Angie Delarie to make the "days" of the month and some of her exisiting pre-coloured "Mystery" images - LOL they are trying to unjumble the days of the month which I wrote out randomly! Make sure you check out Angie's Blog for her new release designs this month!! I am so happy I am keeping up relatively well for this calendar challenge!!

It's a Good Day...

April 29th 2013

Here's my card for the current Just Some Lines "Earth Day" Challenge! I've used 3 different JSL images - the border, the sentiment and cute little Jessie and made a bit of a CAS style card! Happy Earth Day!!!

Butterfly Wishes...

April 28th 2013

This card is for the new challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow where there theme is "Numbers & Letters" - my card has text background plus individual letters to make the words "Best Wishes" & there are some numbers on the background book pages which came from a old maths text book! Image is from Paper Imagery Designs, background is old book pages and old fashioned lantern picture was from a 12 x 12 sheet with all old pictures not sure which company.

Shake Your Tail Feather!

April 27th 2013

A reminder post for our "Things with Wings" challenge at Wicked Wednesday. For this ATC I have used a collage image from Gecko Galz, added a feather and some stamped wording! Simple but I like this image and the saying LOL!!

Tim Holtz April 2013 Tag!

April 26th 2013

I finally got my April Tag done for Tim's 12 Tags of 2013 - this one was a lot of fun and as usual I improvised with what I had on hand. Stamped image is from Stamp-It (an Australian Company), cog charms are Tim Holtz and a couple of the other charms were from my stash. I didn't have any Distress Paint to give a metallic look so I used my Vintaj Metal Patina Set and they worked in the same way.

More Bellissima Inspiration...

April 25th 2013

Here are 2 more cards I made using the new digital stamps from the "Bellissima Set" released at Gecko Galz this month. If you missed the first two click here and you can have a peek! Once again all images are from the Bellissima range and I've added charms, lace & other embellishments.

Things with Wings

April 24th 2013

This week at Wicked Wednesday our theme is "Things with Wings" and A Day for Daisies is sponsoring this challenge. We can't wait to see what you create!

I decided to make my ATC into a card for the current ADFD Challenge which required the use of "Newsprint" - perfect for some Bo Bunny Paper I had stashed in the cupboard and hadn't used for ages. I used the latest sketch from the Sketch N Stash Challenge Blog - you also need to use something from your "stash" on your creation so the newsprint paper was one thing I had forgotten about and also the little butterfly charms haven't been touched for quite some time!!!

She Graduated!

April 23rd 2013

I've made this card with brand new images from Angie Delarie Scrapbooking - this is one of my creations as a member of Angie's DT. You can visit Angie's Store here and make sure you check out the Challenge Blog for the chance to win this amazing "Gianne Graduate" Set of images. For my card I used one of the pre-coloured sets.

The theme for this week's challenge is to recycle your old and make new!!! I reused old book & dictionary pages along with some patterned paper I thought matched the theme. I added the little gold "Congratulations" sentiment and I used the current sketch from Sunday Sketch & Stamp to "arrange" the elements so am also entering their challenge!

If you haven't seen Angie's products before make sure you check them out- so cute & quirky & "Aussie" LOL!!

More Gothic Cutie Inspiration...

April 22nd 2013

A reminder that you still have a week left to enter our "Gothic Cutie" challenge at The Cheerful Stamp Pad - we would love to see some more entries and there are so many images around that are just perfect for this theme!! My card uses an ATC I made some time ago mounted on an embossed background in nice bright colours! I've used a Dilly Beans image again - they are just so cute and so much fun to create with!!


April 22nd 2013

A quick reminder post for our "Black, White + One Other Colour" ATC Theme at Wicked Wednesday - you still have a little bit of time to enter!! I've used another design from our sponsor Lacy Sunshine and this time as you can see I used Black & White PLUS Pink!!!

Dream On...

April 18th 2013

For a Child

April 17th 2013

This card is for the current challenge at the Just Some Lines Blog - I feel bad as I haven't had time to enter their last few challenges so made a big effort to get a card made for this challenge! I used a watercoloured ATC I made some time ago and mounted it onto the base card which I had printed the "Little Bird" Mother Goose Nursery Rhyme on - a perfect rhyme for this image I thought! I guess it's a bit of a CAS style card.

Our Love is as Deep as the Ocean...

April 8th 2013

I am thrilled to have been asked to be a guest designer again at the Forever Friends Challenge Blog as Michelle Perkett Studio is their sponsor for this challenge! I love to get the opportunity to be a Designer again for Michelle's images since I was a member of her DT. The theme for this fortnightly challenge is to use "Die Cuts and/or Punchies" - loved this theme and as you can see I used die cuts on my card for the shape to "frame" the image and also the "bunch" of foliage. Don't you just love the stunning mermaid couple image from Michelle - it would have to be one of my favourite designs! Can't wait to see everyone's creations and if you have a Michelle Perkett image why not use ot for this challenge or get to her store and purchase one to use!!!

No Two Gardens are the Same....

April 7th 2013

You still have a week to join our "Work is Good" Challenge at The Cheerful Stamp Pad - we would love to see some more entries so get your thinking caps on a get your creation linked up!! For my new card I have used a great "gardening" image from Guylou's Inimitability digis. Most of my work is with "turf" but I do have one contract which is looking after a private school garden so this is me working in the garden!!! The gorgeous papers are new release digital papers "Butterfly Meadow" from Gecko Galz and the card layout uses the current sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. I found the gardening quote at the Quote Garden site - one of my favourite places to visit to find that perfect quote!!

Viking Couple!

April 6th 2013

This pair of ATC's is for my reminder post for our "Let's Play Pretend" Challenge at Wicked Wednesday! I used some fantastic pre coloured digital images from Angie Delarie Scrapbooking - I just love to create with Angie's images - they are so quirky and fun - so glad I am part of her DT!!

Mystery Inc.

April 4th 2013

A new creation for "Angie Delarie Scrapbooking" using this "Mystery" set of images - I just love them!! I made this card for the current Drunken Stampers Challenge Blog with their fantastic theme of "Mr & Mrs Smith" (Spy Theme) LOL I have never seen the film but what a great challenge theme!

I bought a new 6 x 6 paper pad by Prima - "Engraver Collection" and thought they were perfect for using on this card. As you can see I got my sewing machine out to stitch all the layers on, added some brads and a charm and printed the wording/sentiment on the computer.

*3*2*1* Blast Off!!

April 3rd 2013
