My Christmas Notebook

Every year at Christmas time I have a little notebook in which I keep a record of all the presents I have bought so I don't forget anyone or more likely buy another present when I've already got one squirrelled away for them. This year I thought I would make myself a pretty one so I set about altering this notebook.

It was a pretty bog standard spiral bound notebook, which I think it cost less than a £1 when I bought it. I started off by levering the spiral open to remove the covers.

 I used a promarker to do this so I didn't bend the spiral out of shape.

I have covered the front and the back with kraft card and then added a panel to the front using papers from Teresa Collins Santa's list pad. I've cut an aperture in the paper and put my image behind the hole. I have used another of the cute penguins from Angels Landing stamps coloured with my promarkers. I have heat embossed the silver on his hat and scarf and given him some stickles snow to stand on. For the finishing touches I  added some red twine and punched snowflakes with red gems to and tied a variety of ribbons to the spiral bound once it was back in place to pretty it up.

On the inside of the back cover I have added a pocked cut out of kraft card so that I can add any receipts I wish to keep. I cut the shape out if the top using one of my nesties shapes.
I would like to enter my notebook into the following challenges:
Crafty Girls Challenge - Anything Goes
Craft Ribbons - Anything But A Card

Cute LOTV Teddy

Another card for an order this time I've used a LOTV topper, Ppaers are from my scraps pile again think they were from an old daisy & dandylion pad. The flower was cut using my Tattered flowers sie and the swirls are Marianne dies.

Vintage Car

Here's a card that I made for an order the car image was from one of the freebie vintage image sites and I have just simply printed it onto so cream paper from one of the MME pads it has a very faint pattern to it. The woodgrain paper is from another MME pad as are the little fishtail banners using up lots of scraps on this card.

Purple & Black at Incy Wincy

Good morning it's Monday morning not only does that mean it's back to work but it's also time for a new challenge over at Incy Wincy and this week challenge is Black & Purple and we are sponsored by Dilly Beans Stamps. I thought I would go a bit different to what you would expect at this time of year with those colours and choose this cute Christmas penguin image form our sponsor. These were so easy to colour in and really need no embellishment I just added a little stickles to highlight. I have matted and layered purple and black card, embossing the pale purple with a snowflake folder on my cuttlebug.

Happy Birthday Nan

Good morning I'm here this morning with a card I did for an order, sorry the photo's are a bit pants but the light here is not the best for taking photo's. I've used pale pink papers from dovecraft teamed with some dark grey card and cut a gorgeous curve to the edge of the card with my spellbinders dies. The image is an old digital stamp from Di's Digi Stamps which I can't find on the blog, I have coloured it with promarkers and layered the balloon and the rose. a little bit of sparkle on the rose with stickles and I put glossy accents on the balloon. The numbers are from an old set of peel offs and the sentiment was done on the PC.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion - Add some embossing
Card Mania - Pastel Colours
Card & Scrap - Anniversaries

Septembers ATC's

This months theme for our ATC swap was cupcakes. I found this digital paper stored in my files not sure where it came from as unfortunately I didn't save a name but it came with cupcake toppers, borders and sentiments. I've used one of the little toppers cut it out with my nesties and added some glitter to the icing with stickles and put glossy accents on the cherry. The sentiment is a digital stamp from Pink Gem with I have cut the image off the top to turn it into a tag cut out with another set of nesties and added a bow to it.

6th 0n The Sixth

 It's time for 6 cards on the sixth again at S J Crafts ( well I'm a couple of days late but don't worry you have all month to link up). For my six cards this month I bought a new set of digital stamps from Angels Landing and used those to base my 6 cards around and then decided to do 3 in blue tones and the other 3 in more traditional red & green. The papers were all from a Dovecraft Back to Basics pack that I bought half price in January. All the images are coloured with my promarkers and I've used stickles for the sparkle.
For the first two cards I've added flat backed gems to this one and a papermania sentiment. The border is punched with my fiskers scalloped lace punch.

 The next two cards I've printed the images twice to layer them up and add a bit of dimension. The snowflake is punched with a woodware punch.


 For my last two cards I have cut an aperture in the front of the card with my nesties and the image is actually on the inside of the card. The snowflake border is a diecut to which I've added gems and the sentiment is again a papermania one.

I hope that you will link up with us this month don't forget that if you join in with you are in with the chance to win a pizza box full of stash.

The cute little elf on my card is from our sponsor and is called Candy Ski as usual I have coloured him with my promarkers adding some stickles for the snow. I have kept the card very simple today with just some embossing down either side and a simple sentiment and one snowflake for decoration.
