Polka Doodles Work & Play CD 6 (part 1)

Nikky Hall over at Polka Doodles has developed this fantastic range of images called "Work and Play". What makes the CD, digi images and stamps so very versatile, is the fact that for each work role or play activity, you get a male and female version. You also get complimentary papers and sentiments to match too ...... a big thumbs up from me! I have been using images from the "Work & Play 6" collection ....... yep, there are another 5 collections before this one which you can find in the Polka Doodles shop HERE.

 ** Work & Play Collection 6 - BONUS EDITION

Today I am sharing my DT projects with the football images and have to say that my inspiration for this "no measure box card" (You Tube video HERE) was inspired by my teamie Claire Bolema.

All the images are included on the CD and I have cut them out, mounted on to acetate and then randomly placed them: they add a movement to the card as if the balls are flying through the air. The real labour of love was cutting out all the bits on the goal ...... one of those "wish I hadn't started moments" but am in the end, glad I did.

Close up of the front:

I adore the "Goal" sentiment and on each tab I have added a football themed ticket sentiment (included on the CD).

I am entering my pop box card in to the following challenges:
Crafting from the heart - anything goes
Ooh La La - fancy folds
Through the Purple Haze - anything goes
Come and get it challenges - anything goes with a sentiment
Fairytale Stamper - anything goes
Crafty Calendar - anything goes
Pumpkin Spice - children
Digitally Sweet - guys only
Sister Act - anything goes
Crafts Galore Encore - anything goes
4 Crafty Chicks - masculine

For my girl football card, I have used one of the design sheets (found also on Work & Play 6 CD), cutting out all the images. I have used one of the football digi images, imported it into Serif Craft Artist, enlarged it to fit an A4 page and created my card base.

To add a little texture and to also break up the layers, I have cut out some faux grass, layering it up with 3D foam pads. The birthday sentiment is also from the same design sheet as is the "goal" sentiment.

The girl footballer comes pre-coloured which is fab for when you need to make a card really quickly and she also comes pre-matted too ...

Using my first football design, I then created the inside of my card (using Serif Craft Artist) and added one of the sentiments that can be found on the Work and Play 6 CD.

I am entering my girlie football themed card in to the following challenges:
Squigglefly - everything rounded
Whoopsie Daisy - girly
Come and get it challenges - anything goes with a sentiment
Fairytale Stamper - anything goes
Crafty Calendar - anything goes
Pumpkin Spice - children
Creative Corner - girly
Sister Act - anything goes
Crafts Galore Encore - anything goes
Crafty Girls Challenges - anything goes

Well my holiday in Ireland is now over and I had a great time visiting Mam, catching up with the relatives and obviously a glass or two of the black stuff.

Underwater Artist Art Journal Page using Marlene's World Collection from Studio Light

I treated myself a long while ago to the fabulous Marlene's World Collection from Studio Light and sadly have to report that it has stayed hidden in a folder since then. Finally, I had some precious "me time" and decided to get the collection and have a play around with a few of the stamps plus collage/paper piece s. It was the sentiment that really "sang to me" 😍 but not like a Sea Siren does ...! A full "how I did it" is below & also a full list of supplies at the bottom of the post.

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.
