Cards for kids - Sweet Stampin'

Morning all!

New challenge time at Sweet Stampin', and this week we're looking for cards for kids. That should be a pretty easy one, no?

I used the fabby Little Red Riding Hood from The Paper Shelter for my card:


I just love her! Such a great image to use for a little one, methinks.

Over to you guys! Please come share your creations for the younglings with us, and don't forget to go see what my fellow Sweeties have been up to!

Have a fantabulous weekend!

Embossing - The Paper Shelter

Good morning all,

It's time for a new challenge over at The Paper Shelter, and this week's theme is Embossing of any kind, so whether you like to use embossing folders, or prefer heat embossing (or maybe you are a clever clogs with an embossing stylus!), we'd love for you to come and join us.

I normally prefer heat embossing, but ever since I discovered the new(ish) Tim Holz 3D Texture Fades, I've been a little addicted to them. My favourite is the foundry one, as it is perfect for industrial/steampunk type effects, but the lumber folder is rapidly catching up...

So, I used the lumber folder for my card today, and teamed it up with the adorable Forest Princess from The Paper Shelter. I chose her because she reminds me of my daughter (again! It's becoming a theme, lol), and decided I may as well get her birthday card out of the way (even though I'm a teensy bit early...)


You may need to click on the image to see the embossing properly as the card I used is very dark. It adds such a lovely bit of texture to it in person though, I was tempted to try and figure out how to emboss enough to use for wallpaper in my bedroom, lol!

So now it's your turn! Come and play with us over at The Paper Shelter, and you could win an amazing $30 gift voucher if you use an image from The Paper Shelter. And if you enter with a different brand image, you can still win three TPS digis of your choice (which you can then use to enter the next challenge, and so be eligible for the $30 voucher!).


Have a fantabulous day!

Watch out for pirates! - Sweet Stampin'

Good morning all,

A new challenge is just going live now over at Sweet Stampin', and this week we'd like you all to Watch out for pirates! So we're looking for anything nautical (actual pirates optional).

This of course was good news for me, because I love anything nautical, and I simply had to play along with team Wends this week!


For my card I used a super cute image from The Paper Shelter, and teamed her with some gorgeous Maja Design papers. Flowers, pearls and an anchor charm finish the card off just nicely.

Over to you guys. I can't wait to see the entries this week!

Have a fantabulous weekend!

Exciting news!

Good morning everyone!

I have some exciting news to share this morning. I have a new DT position, and it's with none other than The Paper Shelter! Anyone who has been following my blog these last few months will know how much I love their digis and can probably guess how very excited I was to be asked to become part of the team!

So, without further ado...

This week's challenge at The Paper Shelter is Back to school.

I used the fab Cool Student for my card, as she reminds me a lot of my daughter when she was in high school (except she doesn't have curly hair... The hat with ears is soooo her though!)

I have to admit I'm rather fond of the purple & mint colour combo, and I am very pleased it photographed well, because I find purple doesn't often come out right.

So now it's your turn! Come and play with us over at The Paper Shelter, and you could win an amazing $30 gift voucher if you use an image from The Paper Shelter. And if you enter with a different brand image, you can still win three TPS digis of your choice (which you can then use to enter the next challenge, and so be eligible for the $30 voucher!).


Have a fantabulous day!

Pretty in pink - Sweet Stampin'

Morning all,

Time for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin', and this week our theme is Pretty in Pink.

Now I rather like this theme, even if not all my fellow Sweeties agree, lol.

I used a  - big surprise - digi from The Paper Shelter. This one is from my favourite of their bundles. That particular bundle really works well with shabby chic cards, so that's exactly what I made!


Isn't she pretty? One of my (many) favourites so far.

That's it from me this week... Over to you guys. Don't forget to go take a peek at all the pretty pinkness over on the blog!

Have a fantabulous weekend!

I definitely want to take this over to go play at The Paper Shelter, with their Face it! challenge. because her face is the prettiest of all!

I'd also like to play along with A Gem of a challenge's anything goes theme, and at the
Polkadoodles Craft challenge where it is also anything goes.

Face it.

Evening all,

Back again to play in the new challenge at The Paper Shelter. Loving the face it theme this week!

First up, I saw this gorgeous digi, and simply had to play with it!


Her name is Rose, and isn't she pretty? I knew just the papers I wanted to pair her with too. They're another set I've had for eons (i.e. since about 2012/13, lol), and they have the distinction of being the only paper pad I've used up in its entirety, and then re-bought because I couldn't bear to be without them. They're such lovely fresh colours, and I think they suit Rose beautifully.

That's it for now. Off to go join the challenge!

Have a fantabulous day!
