Devilishly cute!

We're back today for day two of the All That Scraps August release previews and today we are showing you all things spooky - that's right, we're getting ready for Halloween!  And here is my make...

She's not very scarey, is she?!  But she is incredibly sweet!  This is Devilish Lucy and I used a sentiment from the Halloween Sentiments - the perfect match!  I also stamped the C.C. Designs Woodgrain Rubber Stamp on the C.C. Designs Cutter Fence Border Die.  You can see more spookiness on the blog here - and while you're there don't forget to add your name to the linky for a chance to win a prize!

You can also join in with our Blog Banner Giveaway contest here to win a $25.00 Gift Certificate to All That Scraps. So plenty of chances to get some new goodies this month!

Shadow box beauty!

Hello everyone!  I'm here today to show you my Quixotic Inspirations DT project using those gorgeous Quixotic Paperie goodies.  Those who know me, know that I like to make cards - sometimes venturing to a tag! - but today I have something very different to share...what do you think...




I am really pleased with how my shadow box turned out!  I used the new Make It Crafty Shadow Box in the square frame - it was so easy to put together using a quick drying strong glue.  I coloured in the gorgeous Make It Crafty Adele again but this time with brown hair and matched her up with papers from My Minds Eye Indie Chic Ginger papers.  For the embellishing I used the new SCACD dies Classic Corners and Nature's Tapestry Fan.  For the lettering, I die cut these using Tim Holtz Grunge papers and simply inked them up.


I hope you have enjoyed my project - I certainly had a lot of fun creating it!  See you soon with another crafty make!

I just love the Swiss Pixies and this School Lucy with her sweet jumper has to be one of my faves!  The sentiment is from the School Logos set and I used the new CC Cutters Corner Banner and CC Cutters Apple.  Cute!  You can see more school sweetness on the blog here.

Asian sweetness!

I'm here today with my Monday guest designer post for Pixie Dust Studios.  This week I have created this card using the panda from the Asian Collection...


The prettiest panda every, I'm sure you'll agree!  I love this collection and you get four images at a discounted price or you can save even more and get the Compass Collection that includes the Asian Collection!

I used a Papertrey Ink Quatrefoil cover plate die and the new C.C. Designs Cutter Olive Branch Die
with dies from the C.C. Designs Cutter 8 Petals & Branch Die set.  The papers are from the My Mind's Eye Indie Chic Saffron pad.
I'm off now but I'll be back later with my All That Scraps DT preview release post!

Lovin' that hair do!

Here is the next of my cards using the new Birdie Brown digi by illustrator Torico, this time using Retro Girl 02...



Oh, I think this is my most fave of all the retro gals!  This reminds me of my mum when she was younger - I remember seeing a photo of her with the same hair and dress!  So this card is definitely going in the post to her!

I used more funky Retrospect digi papers by Gennifer Bursett and the heart dies from the die set called Of The Hearts by Lil' Inker Designs.

Okay, that's it from me today - see you later on my blog rounds!

What fabulous news!!

Did you know that the lovely Elaine, owner of Quixotic Paperie is now stocking My Favorite Things Die-namics?  I luuuuurve my MFT goodies so in celebration, I made this summery card (inspired by the sun we've had this week in the UK!)...




I used the beautiful Simply Betty Water Fun Rio with papers from the Echo Park - Splash Collection Kit.  The sentiment is from the Whimsy Party Mini Letter Seals set which I stamped on the MFT Die-Namics - Fishtail Flags STAX.  Other MFT goodies I used were the Flat Bottom Clouds die, Notched Border die and the Wonky Scallop Border die.

Please don't ask which is my most fave of the MFT dies - they are all so fab!  You can see the rest of the new MFT Die-namics here - but you'd better hurry cos I've already put most of them in my shopping basket!

Okay, I am off now - see you later on my blogging rounds!

Another retro cutie!

Back again with a card using another of those new Birdie Brown digis by illustrator Torico this time using Retro Girl 01...



That's the sort of dress I wear for work, but I don't look as cool as her!  I used the funky Retrospect digi papers by Gennifer Bursett and a My Favorite Things border die.  The sentiment is from the My Favorite Things Pretty Pocket Stamp Set and the gorgeous bow is the Bow Die (small) by Lil' Inker Designs.

Okay, I am off now - will be round to see you all later!

You're the top lollipop!

(Please scroll down for my MilkCoffee and
Little Miss Muffet DT posts!)


You sure are!  And my favourite type of lollipop is called Double Lollies - sort of hard sherberty, two toned in colour - do you know what I mean?  Probably not!  Anyhoo, I'm actually here with a review of the All That Scraps July release and today we are showcasing the uber cool and cute Meoples I Want Candy set and here are my makes...




I matched them up with those fun papers from the My Minds Eye Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky papers.  The Sweet sentiment is from the AmyR Stamps Sweet Sentiments set and lollipop sentiment is from the Sweet Logos Rubber Stamp Set.   And of course the fun C.C. Designs Cutter Curly-Q Border Die is the perfect fun match with these stamps!

You can see more reviews of the Meoples I Want Candy seton the blog here - you should check them out if you have a spare 5 minutes!

This is newbie Lavender who I think is such a sweet gal!  I love that cute flower on her dress and the frills just finish off her so prettily!  I matched her up with My Minds Eye Gertie papers and used that sweet Martha Stewart border punch and the sentiment is from the Lil' Inker Designs Funny Bunnies stamp set.
