Using limited time to create quickly

What on earth has happened to the weather? I really hope that it picks up by next week as I have the school residential to go on. Fingers and toes crossed that all my careful resting will make my back recover sufficiently that I can go. Will be so sad if I can't as both myself and the kiddo's are excited ... well who wouldn't be excited about having a week off school!

I have been meaning to make a card using all the stamp elements that are always in abundance on Tatty Twinkle stamp sets, so with only a little crafting time tonight, as sitting for long periods is not working for me, I got my ink pads out and off I started. I have used lots of elements from Tatty Twinkle Timeless collection. I was really surprised at how quickly this card came together and will definitely be making a stock pile to turn in to card gift packs.

It was great just stamping away without over thinking (if that makes sense) to create my floral array. The sentiment is also from one of the Tatty Twinkle Timeless collection.

Right, back to being good and resting up .... which is sooooooooooo boring!

Happy 5th Birthday Polka Doodles

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.

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 ...
