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 πŸ’–.

I knew this week that I wanted to make a Halloween themed shaker card and it was only whilst prepping my supplies, that the light bulb struck 100 watts and "SWEETS" bounced in to my thoughts. I took inspiration from Paula Pascal from her demos last year, for the shaker backing material.

The M&Ms are inside a blister dome - from Tonic Studios - and to get to them, you can tear away the tin foil backing.

I have used lots of the monster images from the Freaky Monsters clear stamp set to adorn my card, all coloured with GraphIt markers. The sentiment is from the "Hey Pumpkin" stamp set.


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 πŸ˜„. You can check out the full digital/downloadable range HERE


I will be giving away a prize of one of the Polkadoodles featured products used this week, each day on my blog. Today I am giveaway a set of  Freaky Monsters clear stamp set to one randomly chosen winner ...

Leave your name in the InLinkz list found at the bottom of this post, to be entered and the giveaway runs until 26th September 2019. Also this giveaway is open WORLDWIDE.


Here's a little look at tomorrows project which I can't wait to share with you all.

If you made this card, what would be your sweets of choice inside the shaker? I think mine would have to be either milk bottles or mint imperials ...

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.

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 πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜‰ 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 …
