April Calendar Page.

Morning all from a rather sunny East Yorkshire, whoop whoop.
OK so I know I am rather late (it is after all the last day of the month!) but here is my calender Page for April. 

The background Paint Dabber in Watermelon and Red Pepper. The leaves across the top are from Dylusions stamp set Further Around The Edge, coloured in Dylusions London Blue. 

The spider is from Bits of This Dylusions set. 

The April is stamped using Dy's Alphabet stamps. The tags are created with another Dylusions stamp from the Write Between the Lines stamp set, I stamped them onto Papermania Portobello Rd paper and cut them out. I simply connected the tags with a black pen. 

The face is from Dylusions Bits of This stamp set again. The flowers are from Background Love Dylusions set, stamped onto more of the Portobello Rd paper and cutout. 

Thank you for looking and have a nice day.

Digi Storage

Hi there.
Its official I think I have turned into my Husband, lol. He is very organised and I am not but it appears I am heading that way. 
I can not always remember what digi stamps I have so i decided to make a little book to use as a reference so I don't have to have one of each printed out waiting. (space is limited for us all). 

Here is my book for my Saturated Canary stamps (Its A5 in size). 

All the backing papers are from leftovers from Graphic 45's 'Little Darlings' collection.

The main image is Thank You from Saturated Canary.

She is coloured with Pro-markers  from the spring and winter collection 2012.

The writing stamped down the side is an alphabet set from what was formally Dimensions Fourth.

This is the inside. All I have done with the digi's inside is to print them onto normal copy paper.

This is the back of the book. Again using leftovers from Graphic 45 'Little Darlings' collection 12x12 paper pad. 

Thank you for stopping by.

Morning all and welcome to another challenge over at Crafty Boots Challenges. This fortnight its all about recycle. So take anything crafty and reuse it in someway.
Here is my interpretation. 

It is made from the packaging from a stamp i got recently. 

I covered the tag with some left over pieces of paper from graphic 45 'little Darlings' collection. I recently made all my Easter cards with these papers and so all the papers i used here are leftovers from then.

I then stamped my image a couple of times, again on left over pieces of patterned paper and cut them out. 

Then stuck the paper pieces onto the main image.

The stickers are again from the Little Darlings collection.

This is the reverse of the tag which again I covered with papers. 


I again cut out images from the  papers and stuck them on the reverse. 

Thank you for stopping by to look. Good luck if you are taking part in the challenge.

The olde curiosity shoppe Journal page

This double spread in my creative journal was inspired by the extremely talented Gentleman Crafter Jim Hankins. For the original inspiration please click here.

Here is my interpretation
I used the Graphic 45 collection The Olde Curiosity Shoppe with a couple of Dylusions stamps in there (Pondering Petunia, Curious Corrin, Background Basics). The border stamp is from the Tim Holtz Classic no6 set.

Here is the page with its tags removed.

These are the 2 main tags.

These are the 3 tags that are down the right hand side page.

The middle tag also opens out to reveal more.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope that i did Jim's original page justice?

Oriental lilac

Here is an 8x8 card. All the backing papers are from DCWV Far East stack. I have had this stack quite awhile so am not sure if you can still get it. the letter stamps are form what was Dimension Fourth Stamps and were used over the DCWV papers. 

The main image is a digi from Sherri Baldy Jasmin Geisha, she is coloured with Pro-markers.

The gems and flower is all from my stash.

There is glitter within her headdress and is chameleon glitter. 

Thank you for looking.
