Crafty Creations Challenges - #207 Anything BUT a Card...

There's a fun new challenge this week at Crafty Creations Challenges...

Anything BUT a Card.....

Felt is very popular these days, and I've seen lots of lovely little felt creations so decided to have a go at making something myself!! This felt is lovely, it's by Papertrey Ink, cuts like butter.  Of course the plan in my head completely changed once I sat down to make it, but I like how it turned out anyway - sorta soft n pretty n girly - and NO pink or red in sight!! lol 

This week's generous sponsor is Guylou's Inimitability - so for your chance to win our prize share your project with us! bx

Crafty Creations Challenges - #206 Take Two

This week's new theme at Crafty Creations Challenges is:

Take TWO

We want to see 2 IDENTICAL "somethings" on your creation! It could be 2 images, 2 embellishments, anything as long as they are identical!

Seems like forever since I have coloured an image - I was afraid I'd forgotten how!!  I used this cute image from Lili of the Valley and challenged myself to make a side easel card!! Not much of a challenge you may say but when you get stuck in the rut of making the same old same old....anyway, turned out like this!!

My 2 - I used 2 impressions of the POSTCARD stamp, and i used 2 of the metallic brad arrows (just can't remember the proper name of those right now...another wee blonde moment i guess!!) 

We are generously sponsored by A Creative Need Digital Images - so for your chance to win, show us your project with TWO!! bx

Crafty Creations Challenges - #204 Something New

Happy New Year to one and all!! I couldn't believe how long it's been since my lost post - wow, the time has just flown by!!

Today's new theme at Crafty Creations Challenges is:

Something New

 I was lucky enough to have an American holiday just before christmas and was able to help santa choose some (ok LOTS!!) fab pressies for me!!  So this was a great opportunity to play with some of my new toys!!

I got this Front & Centre Die from Papertrey Ink - I used it to make a little gift bag.  (I'm going to make a few more of these to house little cupcakes)!  Got that Bazzill Basics card stock in the sale so that's new too!!  Once I made the little bag, i thought it needed a card to go with - so voila!!  I used another new edger die on my card. The sentiment SWEET is from a new Papertrey Ink stamp set - I mixed it up with a MFT sentiment on the card. The Simple Stories paper pad is not new - but it had't had enough love yet!! lol

As always we have a very generous sponsor, Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps & More is offering a prize for one lucky random winner - so why not show us something NEW?! bx
