Sisterhood of Crafters with Kaiser Craft ...

Today I am very chuffed and honoured to be chosen as a "Sister" for The Sisterhood of Crafters challenge and can't thank Darlene enough for inviting me as a GDT .... and also for putting up with my calendar mishap (HUGE mwah Darlene).

The theme for this challenge is "Baby" and I have used some yummy Kaiser Craft papers from the Sweet Nothings pad as they were just perfect to use with my image, (which I have coloured with Flexmarkers, keeping the colouring very simple). All this has been mounted on to my embossed heart background (aged with my pan pastels).

Simple mat and layering but have roughened up the edges, adding a little curling here and there! For my centre, I have layered up 2 edgerbility dies on to more of the Kaiser Craft Sweet Nothings paper and finished with some Perfect Pearl dots.

The image has been cut out using the square dies set from Spellbinders and then layered several times (using the same set & papers as before). Finally finished by matting on to a Parisian square die cut. I have then added a few(!) swirls including pearl swirls from My Mind's Eye.

Fingers crossed I have scheduled this post to co-ordinate with EST and BST times ... however just in case, I have scheduled it to appear slightly earlier (if I have read the translation time thingy on Google correctly)!

Busy Wednesday for me and will be pleased when the day is over. Have a great day everyone,

Happy Birthday to Us!!   TODAY IS POLKADOODLES FIFTH BIRTHDAY - WOOHOOO!!! Firstly, if you arrived here from Kath's blog as part of the blog hop, then you're in the right place!  I'd just like to take the opportunity to thank all of you for supporting Polka Doodles over the past 5 years, we've seen so many changes in the industry and we still love what we do and get such a thrill with every new product we release. It's so awesome that all of you keep on supporting us along the way and we know that we wouldn't be here without that great support. I would also like to take the opportunity to thank Nikky and Kris, for being brave enough to let me join the Polka Doodles team 5 years ago! We thought we needed something special to celebrate our 5th Birthday.... so Nikky decided to celebrate by designing a special Digistamp for each of us 5 'Originals' along with a great little paper bundle (which was also designed specifically for ea

Legacy Keep Dies from Tonic Studios to make an album page.

Hi everyone. Have you been enjoying Tonic Studios 17th birthday celebrations on Hochanda? Oh my goodness, so many wonderful die collections and Nuvo products to choose from, each as much fun to 'play' with ... oh yes they are, trust me 😏😍😉 This weekend, Jodie is launching a set of dies called 'Legacy Keeper' which are part of the Memory Book range. For my first project share using these dies, I have used them to create an album page for this album - made using Memory Book 2  ...   The front is decorated with the new Treasured Tome A4 embossing folder creating an embossed acetate layer on top. Gotta go off topic here and say did you see Jodie & Janice trying to pronounce the embossing folders name? So very funny ...! Okay, back to the album ... I often create an acetate layer to act as a protective cover to the front of my albums especially if you have a photograph on the front.

A mini album made using the NEW keepsake from Tonic Studios - Life's Journey

On Wednesday, Jodie Johnson launched the new Life's Journey Keepsake Collection of dies from Tonic Studios on Create & Craft, which compliment the existing memory book dies. It was a huge success and sold out within the hour! I was very lucky and managed to play with the dies making samples for the show - well it was meant to be shows. For one of my samples I made a travel journal themed album with a male slant ...
