2 colours - The Paper Shelter

 Morning all, yep, time for another challenge over at The Paper Shelter. This week the theme is 2 colours.

I chose the sweet Stylish Flirting digi, and had some fun with my duo-tone creation.


I decided on blue and a beige/sandstone colour that worked very well with some pretty 13@rts papers I had to hand. Some ribbon and heart-shaped bling later and I had a completed card with a colour scheme I am really happy with. I may remember this when re-decorating my bedroom soon!


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!).

 




Hope you have a fantabulous day!

Add a button - Sweet Stampin'

 Morning all!

It's new challenge time at Sweet Stampin', and this week's theme is add a button.

For my card I chose a fab stamp for Art by Marlene, which I teamed with some Maja Design papers to make a card for my mum (we lived in the Netherlands for some years, and my mum really loves Dutch-themed things).


And of course I added the button and some twine.

So, over to you! dig out your button box and come play along at Sweet Stampin'. We're looking forward to seeing your makes!

Have a fantabulous weekend!

 Morning all!

New challenge time over at The Paper Shelter, and this week it's all about the animals!

I thought it a great opportunity to have a play with the adorable My favorite vet/pet digi.


Such an adorable puppy, no? This digi was so lovely to colour!

Colours of Autumn - Sweet Stampin'

 Morning all,

It's new challenge time over at Sweet Stampin', and the theme is colours of autumn.

This worked out perfectly for me, as I wanted to use some papers with autumn colours (and rugby balls, lol) to make a birthday card for my wee brother. So I teamed them up with a fab LotV stamp, and made a card for my rugby-playing brother.


It even looks a little like he did as a youngster (only the hair is less curly than his, lol). Of course, he'll probably never forgive me for making the ball red instead of the obviously superior blue, but it needed to fit the colour scheme! ;)

So now it's over to you guys. Create us an autumn-hued make, and come share it over at the Sweet Stampin' blog. I always love this theme, so I'm looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with!

Have an awesomesauce day!

Back to School! - The Paper Shelter

 Good morning!

Time for another new challenge over at The Paper Shelter, and the theme this week is one parents everywhere count down the days to... Back to school

My son finished his A-levels, got the spectacular results he needed, and should have gone on to study computer science at Leeds uni this year, but there was a system glitch with UCAS, and by the time we could even speak to someone about it, his course was already full up (it's one of the top 10 in the country, so places went super fast!). so he's got an extra year to wait, and in the meantime is going to do a 1-year engineering course at a local college, to keep him busy and keep the ball rolling academically. After almost 2 years of no schooling, it'll probably be better this way as it'll get him used to structured learning again before starting uni! (unfortunately my son's school was one of the ones that failed utterly to provide anything besides attendance taking with the online learning during the pandemic. He did it all himself, with a handful of sessions with a paid online tutor for maths, but I suspect that won't stop the school taking credit for his As!

Oof, sorry, that was a little bit of a digression there, but suffice to say, we're all looking forward to back to school time!

To celebrate, I decided to play with The Enchanted Professor, which was one of the first digis that caught my eye when I discovered The Paper Shelter. But then, any digi with a book in it is going to get my vote! lol.



I located some school-themed paper too, which I thought matched up rather nicely, and allowed me to play with a pretty teal colour-scheme.


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!).

 




Hope you have a fantabulous day!

Anything but a card - The Paper Shelter

 Morning all,

New challenge time over at The Paper Shelter, and this week we're looking for anything but a card

Now you all know me, I love this particular theme, and usually will break out the mixed media/altered art supplies for it, but unfortunately we're currently re-decorating our house, and putting in new bathroom etc. in order to sell and move when we're done, and most of my craft supplies are packed up!

So I have done with a simple gift tag, using the beautiful Exotic Enchantment digi.



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!).

 




Hope you have a fantabulous day!
