Christmas is family time ...

Here is my 2nd post sharing another of my projects for the new Polka Doodles stamp soup release  and this time I have mixed some of the elements from the CD with stamping. When I saw the tags, I just had to use them ...

I printed off the sentiment tags making sure they were different sizes so that I could make a zig zag card ... but with tags! I inked around the edge to age them a little. Once the tags were in place, I began decorating them.

Front page: I have used the poinsettia petals to create my flower with the small embellie stamp to create the centre flower. The floral tendrils are another stamp from the set coloured with distress ink and then cut out.

For the middle panel, I printed out the stocking and decorated it with stamped flowers and leaves. Again I have tried to give the sentiment "centre stage".

The last panel has been kept very simple as this is where you would write your message, with another stamped flower. The red dots you see on each panel, are made using glue plus ultra fine red glitter. The card came together quite quickly and for once I didn't faff whilst decorating it!

Nikky is on twice today, 2pm and 7pm, so do make sure you tune in to C&C. However if you can't, you can watch the shows on line on the C&C site for up to 7 days.

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. 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 ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‰ 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 ...
