Summer Colours.....................

Hello!

It's Digi Choosday Challenge Day! Pop over to the main blog to grab your discount for the day, it's a limited offer so grab it while you can.

The theme for the challenges are 'Anything Goes' but the theme for the design team this week is 'Summer Colours'.

I opted to make a stepper card this week from kraft card, I think I have an addiction! I decided to play with Winnie Fruit Punch Collection which you can see here.

The papers are from 'Winnie Sugar Sprinkles' which you can find here. I used a topper from the 'Fruit Punch' Collection which you can find here.  I added some butterflies from the collection to add as embellishments.

I love the bright papers and this lovely sky blue edged topper is definitely giving me a summery feel!

Now go back to the main blog to see the rest of the design team inspiration and how you can join in the fun with us.

See you soon!

Buttons..................

Hi there!

It's time for another fantastic challenge over at Digi Choosday Challenge and another FAB discount code, so go grab it while it lasts!

Our themes for our challenges are 'Anything Goes' but the design team do have a theme to follow and this week our theme it is 'Buttons'.

So immediately I thought of the wonderful 'Winston' Collection - one of the adorable characters in this collection is Etty and she has a wee sewing shop. So I was all set for a button theme.

But then I thought about it and I just happened to be using my Silhouette Portrait so I had a look through my files to see what I could make instead of just a card.


I used a paper from the 'Winston' Collection and used it to decorate a cute little pizza box.  I cut out some of the ephemera buttons from the collection too for added decoration.

It's a cute little box and I like how cute it is when it is finished, A quick simple make but effective all the same.

Don't forget to catch the rest of the design teams inspiration over on the main challenge blog and see how you can take part in the fun!

See you soon!

Crafty Ribbons.............

Hello!

It is my turn to post for the Colour Crazy Challenge Team and this week we are sponsored by Crafty Ribbons, you can check out their store here.

We go to play with any image in our stash this week so I had a wee dabble into my Polkadoodles stash and couldn't resist the Ula's Life Collection which you can see here. I opted to use Ula Create which you can find here.


I made a 7x7 card using papers from the Nitwit Collection.  I coloured the image with my Copic markers:

I used the following markers:
Skin: E000, E00, E02, E11, E04
Hair: E25, E27, E29
Eyes: B12, B24
Dress: V04, V06, V09
Heart: R32, R35, R37
Book: C00; C01, C02

I edged the image with a black fine liner. 


I added a lovely piece of ribbon and some sparkly dazzlers for effect. 

Thanks for popping by and don't forget to join in the main challenge and get the chance to win some goodies from our lovely sponsor this week. 

See you soon!

Thinking About Summer.................

Hello!

A fresh week and a new Digi Choosday Challenge - which means a new fabulous discount code, so grab it while it's there, the details are on the main blog.

The theme for the challenges are 'Anything Goes' but for the design team this week we were asked to 'think about summer.'  I instantly knew what collection I wanted to play with this week and I went straight to 'Winnie Starfish & Sandcastles' and opted to use a design sheet for this challenge.

I opted to use Rocco and design sheet 8 - which you can find here.

I made a really quick and simple card, because the backing paper on the design sheet has a faux kraft centre, I mounted the sheet on a plain 7x7 kraft card blank.  Then I simply cut out elements of the sheet to make my card, because how can you think of summer and NOT think about the beach?!

As I said, a quick simple card made so much easier by the use of a design sheet.

Pop back to the main blog and check out our rules so you can play along in our challenges with us, you can also see the rest of the amazing inspiration from the design team.

See you soon!

Flowers..................

Hello!

Time for a new challenge at Digi Choosday Challenge and this week the challenge for the design team is 'Flowers' however for our challenge entrants the theme is 'Anything Goes'.

I had a look through my vast Polkadoodles collection whilst I was looking for another challenge theme and came across this page of flowers in 'Winnie Sugar Sparkles - Fruit Punch' Collection which you can find here. I think you would find the floral sheet in the floral bundles here if you didn't want to buy the whole collection.

I simply sent this to my Portrait and got the machine to cut these lovely flowers out for me.

 I made a 7x7 card and chose a sentiment from the 'Winnie sugar Sprinkles' Collection which you can check out here, or you can look at the whole collection here.

I mounted the sentiment onto purple cardstock and then I just decorated the front with the cut flowers. I thought the end result was pretty and summery.



So there's my inspiration for this week and I know the design team have lots more to show you on the main blog, so don't forget to go check it out.

Thanks for popping by, see you soon!

Must Use a Design Sheet..........

Hello!

It's Digi Choosday Challenge time again, so don't forget to pop over to the main blog to grab that discount code while it's valid.

The theme for our challenges are always 'Anything Goes' although the design team have a theme and this week it is 'Use a Design Sheet'.  So this week I went playing in Wonderland........yes I decided to play with 'Winnie in Wonderland' Collection which you can see here.

I used Design Sheet 5 in the big kahuna bundle, but you can also purchase the design sheet as an individual sheet here.

I cut the design sheet out on my Silhouette Portrait by using the Electronic Trace File for design sheets option which is one of the files in the collection.

I added an additional paper from the collection, if you just want the paper the you can buy a mini bundle with this paper included here.


I was really pleased with how this turned out and I didn't even use all the elements from the sheet! One of the elements is the gorgeous pocket watch and I don't know if you can tell from the picture above but I decoupaged the pocket watch onto the paper to give some dimension.

I hope you like my card for this week and don't forget to check out the main blog and see the rest of the inspiration from the design team and see how you can enter our challenge to win some Polkadoodles goodies!

See you soon!

Special Birthday............

Hello there!

It's time for another challenge at Digi Choosday Challenge where the theme for the challenge is ALWAYS 'Anything Goes'! The discount on the MAIN BLOG is only available for a limited time, so make sure you grab it and take advantage!

The theme for this weeks challenge for the design team is Birthday - yes it is our very own Anjie's very special birthday - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

I'm on a bit of a Winnie love fest at the moment and make no apologies for it, she is the cutest! This week I opted for Winnie Fruit Punch Collection and this week I coloured the image 'One For You' which you can find here.  This is the perfect image for birthdays, although knowing our birthday girl in question, I'm not sure it's 'One for You' more like 'One for Each Hand!'.

I used papers from the Octavia Frosted Winter Collection which you can see here and also the Winnie in Wonderland Collection which you can see here.

I coloured the image with my copic markers.

She looks like she is having fun doesn't she!

Now why don't you pop on over to the main blog and see what the rest of the design team have come up with. You can also see how to join in the fun with us!

See you soon!

Hugs
