Digi Choosday Design Team Project

Hi guys,

It's Tuesday again …. the weeks fly by so quickly don't they!

So here we are again with another Challenge at the Digi Choosday Blog

http://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/

As always the challenge for you lovely lot is anything goes but us the DT and you if you choose to play along have a theme each week and this week it was to use Circles:


I had so much fun making my last collection of tags from the Winnie White Christmas Collection that I decided to make more, this is the front and back of the tiny little box, just to give you an idea of the size this box was made out of an 8x8" piece of printed card.


I then made like a million tags … well 15 to be exact in 3 different sizes, using so many different circle dies and punches!


I added pearls, silver sparkly punch snowflakes and stars, fabric snowflakes and stickles to embellish them all


I finished off with Bakers twine for attaching them to packages!

I have also created you a little video so you can see them more clearly:



I hope you like my tags and i'm not boring you with making so many lol

Hugs xx Cara xx

Petal Lu challenge mid month inspiration

Good morning my lovelies,

It’s mid September (can you believe it?!) so I’m just popping in to share my mid month inspiration for the 

I went with something very autumnal and also a little different for me!



The image is by Power Poppy and I adore it! I coloured it up with my Spectrum Noir Markers and added a little touch of white Signo pen to the highlights.

The sentiment is also Power Poppy.

The papers were from a very old pad, in fact I realised today that I haven’t bought any new autumn/ Halloween papers since I first started crafting about 10 years ago! 

I feel a shopping spree coming on ha ha!

Have a great Sunday guys!

Hugs xx Cara xx

Digi Choosday DT Make - Fantasy


Happy Tuesday guys,

As you should all know by now Tuesdays mean it's not only Digi Choosday but also Discount day, have you popped over to the Challenge blog to secure your discount code yet???

So as always the theme for you guys is anything goes, but us the DT and you if you wish to play along of course were given the theme Fantasy!

http://www.polkadoodles.co.uk/


Now usually I would select some sort of Fairy or mermaid image but thought I would go a little different this weeks … it seams most of us on the DT had the same idea lol


I used the fabulous Knight Dude and you can buy him in his own mini kit with sentiments and 3 papers here, or in the Little Dudes big Kahuna bundle here.


Isn't he so cute with his little Dragon, I coloured him up with my promarkers, it was a long job since I decided to try my hand at making my own decoupage … I didn't realise how complicated it would be!


The image comes with three Digital Papers and some sentiments too, I went a bit crazy and ended up decoupaging the papers too!


I finished the whole thing off with my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the little Dragon and all of the popped up stars!

I hope you like it.
