Polkadoodles Halloween Extravaganza clear stamps & papers + GIVEAWAY ...

Good morning everyone. Oh my oh my, the weekend here was HOT ๐Ÿ’ฆ HOT ๐Ÿ˜ฐ HOT! I'm not bemoaning the sunshine, just need it a wee bit cooler. I'm just not built for these 30+ temperatures lol.

For the whole of this week, I've a "SPOOKTACULAR" event running featuring lots of Polkadoodles stamps & papers with a distinctly Halloween theme.


The event begins with my "Up Close & Personal" look at a selection of the Polkadoodles Halloween goodies you can use on your Halloween projects and you can check out my YouTube video HERE or click on photo below ....

 Up Close & Personal YouTube video

Over the coming week, I will be sharing lots of YouTube tutorials of all the different projects featured in my "Up Close & Personal" video, with step by step instructions, so would be chuffed to bits if you could pop back each day to see the project featured.

Also a selfish plug here ... I'd love to increase my subscriber numbers on YouTube which means I can then access more of their features, which in turn helps me produce and share better video content. I'd be really grateful if you could subscribe to my growing channel as I have lots of videos waiting to be released in the next days, weeks & months. Plug over ... but seriously, thank you. You can get to my YouTube channel HERE.


"UP CLOSE & PERSONAL" PROJECT


To "kick start" my event, I am sharing a quick project which has been made using all the wonderful accessory stamps that Nikky (Polkadoodles owner & designer), always adds to each of her clear stamp sets. I've used the following stamp sets to create my card ...

Little Monsters clear stamp set - Funky Monsters and Freaky Monsters
Sentiment from - Hey Pumpkin


The images have been stamped to create a border but I did think it would be cool to add a Halloween Spider to the mix. His bow tie made me feel as if he was a "mad scientist" ...! All have been coloured with GraphIt Markers; bless them, they were all of a quiver as it's been an age since they were last out, colouring along with me!


I have stamped the sentiment underneath - which I think is perfect for this card design - and then to link the sentiment to the Halloween images above, I've stamped a spiders web with it's 3-eyed spider owner ...!

POLKADOODLES & HALLOWEEN

If stamping isn't "your thing", Polkadoodles has oodles & oodles of Halloween digital/downloadable products from b&w images, coloured images, sentiments, paper packs, embellishments ... if fact, too many to list here, as knowing me, I'm bound to forget something. You can check out the full digital/downloadable range HERE

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" ๐Ÿ˜ 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 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.

Learning to photograph my craft projects featuring Text(ures) stamps by Lou Collins

Do you know what I find the hardest about blogging and sharing on social media? Taking clear, good photographs. It really is a daily struggle & some days, the struggle can be monumental when doing photography editing.   Recently I’ve been following a few wonderful artists & a few companies, who above being creative, also share their hints and tips about how to get the best shots to show case the project you may have spent hours making.   My subject for this post is the card below …
