Cute Fox

Happy Sunday peeps!

I hope you are all having a lovely day :o)

Crafts Beautiful have been showcasing a past make of mine on Facebook recently. As cute foxes ane still so popular at the moment I thought I would re-live this past make.

You can find the instructions on how to make this adorable little fox card here and the templates here. I also included a full illustration of the fox with the templates so that if you didn't want to paper piece him, you can download, print him out and colour him instead.

You can find lots more templates, projects, freebies, templates and ideas at For lots of inspiration and ideas, you can also follow them on Facebook and Pinterest too!

Why not have ago at making this card tonight? It's a perfect way of using up those little scraps of paper and card!

Thank you for stopping by and I'll be back soon xx

Monsterific - Incy Wincy/Bugaboo

Hello Peepsicles!

My! Doesn't a fortnight fly by quickly? I can't believe it's two weeks since our last Incy wincy challenge, which means we have a new one for you. Yay!

This time the theme is Tic-Tac-Toe and we have THREE fab sponsors, these are Bugaboo, Di's DigiStamps and Craft Classes Online.

From the Tic-Tac-Toe board I chose embossing/sentiment/pearls and the image is called Make it snappy - Monsterific by Bugaboo.

Here is my card...

Items needed...

Card stock: white, yellow
Promarkers: Aegean, Bright Green, Ice Grey 1, Molten Red*, Yellow
Washi tape: black/white striped
Embossing folder: Kirstie Allsopp Zig-Zag - Cricut® Cuttlebug™
Pearls: black

*limited edition colour(s)

Is this image hilarious or what? I love the way the monster in the background is squishing down the head of the round spiky monster :oD

Three lucky winners will get either 7 free digis from Bugaboo, a $12 voucher for Di's DigiStamps or an on line seat with Craft Classes Online. Click on each of the badges below to take you to the sponsor websites.

Before I go, we have another new member of the DT, Catherine! It would be great if you popped on over to Incy Wincy and have a look at her lovely make for the challenge. Plus the DT have been busy coming up with some gorgeous makes for your inspiration.

Thank you so much for stopping by! TTFN xxx

Be Happy

Hello my lovelies!

As I promised yesterday, I'm back with another make and this one is CAS with a bright, cheery splash of colour...

Items needed...

Dies: Craft Asylum Happiness Phrases (660804); Craft Asylum Sunny Flower ( 660807) - Sizzix
Embossing folder: Layered Scallops - Echo Park
Card stock: aqua, bright pink, lime, white, yellow

The flower dies are so cute, there are four in the pack so you can mix and match to your heart's desire!

I got a collection of Craft Asylum dies from my mum and dad-in-law for Christmas, so I've been itching to have a play.

This is such a bright and cheery card that you can't help but smile. I made it yesterday and it was such a dull, dark, rainy day that this added that little bit of sunshine!

I do hope you like my little make and thank you for stopping by!

Take care for now, ta ta! x

So Cool

Hello peeps!

I hope you all have had a fruitful day. I've been finishing off a couple of commissions for PaperCrafter. I can't wait for you to see them when they come out, they are so bright and colourful!

Talking of PaperCrafter, I have the second of the cute critter cards that were the bonus makes on their website from a past issue. Yesterday I posted the crab card and here is the little seal card...

This cute little fella was taken from the Chilly Chums stamp set by Paper Smooches (you've probably guessed by now that I love PS stamps).

As with the crab, full instructions and items needed can be found on the PaperCrafter website. Click here to take you to the page. They are free and if you sign up (also free) you can download lots of templates and patterned papers.

You can also follow PaperCrafter on Facebook to keep up to date on all the crafty news and gossip, plus there are competitions and giveaways too!

Thank you for calling by and I have a lovely bright, CAS simple to show you next time using Sizzix Craft Asylum dies!

Ta ta for now! xx

Oh Crab...

Afternoon all!

As it's very chilly at the moment I thought I would warm you up with a little card that I did as part of set for a past issue of PaperCrafter. 

This was one of two cards that were bonus makes on the PaperCrafter website. Here is the cute little chap!

This adorable little crab is taken from the Chubby Chum Pals stamp set by Paper Smooches. To get the effect on his shell, I coloured him in with Promarkers and then stippled over with the blending pen and a fine nib.

You can find the full instructions on how to create this card and all the items needed on the PaperCrafter website, click here to take you directly to the page.

There is also a cute little seal card as well, I will post a picture of that one soon.

Thank you for stopping by and I'll be back soon! TTFN xx

The first is that as from now Incy Wincy Challenges will run on the 1st and 3rd Monday of every month; the second is that we have a new DT member - Greg! 

Okay, so that's the official stuff over with, now onto the challenge. This fortnight's challenge is 'white with a splash of colour' and we have two brilliant sponsors - A Day For Daisies (winner will receive a $12 Gift Certificate) and That Craft Place Ltd (winner will receive 3 digi images).
