Craftwork Cards - Warren

It was my friend Maria's birthday recently so I quickly made her a card using a Craftwork Cards die cut pre coloured image from their 'Warren' Collection, Sweet Meadow paper and bunting, die cut scallop circle and flower and a sentiment. The only non Craftwork Cards items were the little pink flowers which were from Hobbycraft.

The design was the same as a card I made for the Scrapology card challenge last September but for Maria's card I used slightly different colours. I think if you like a design, its good to recycle it?

Hope you had a lovely birthday Maria.

Scrapology - March Card Challenge

This month Karen from Charmed Cards and Crafts have sponsored our card challenge over on Scrapology.

The challenge is to use a digital stamp on your card. The design team used digital stamps available from Charmed Cards and Crafts and I used an image from the Sugar and Spice bundle.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and used papers from Papermania's 'Rose Garden' collection. The border was punched with a Fiskars 'sunburst' border punch and the self adhesive pearls were from The Hobby House. The sentiment was from a QVC kit.

Please hop on over to Scrapology to see all the design teams cards and if you create your own card using a digital stamp and submit it you could win two digital collections of your choice from Charmed Cards and Crafts.

Scrapology March Layout Challenge - G is for Glitter

This month on Scrapology the team chose a super layout by our own design team member Anita as inspiration. With the challenge to use Glitter on the layout this was a good opportunity to break out the Stickles, glitter, glitter stickers and all things bright and sparkly.

This was my layout.


I used papers from My Minds Eye 'Lost and Found' collection, 'Dreamy 2' collection and 'Quite Contrary' collection and with some careful gutting I was able to stretch those papers to enable me to mat and layer to create a frame effect.

I made the flowers from some scraps of paper cut into flower shapes on the Craft Robo and Stickled them to make them sparkle. I used brads for the centres which I glittered.

The chipboard lettering used for the word 'Dream' came from a Lisa Bearnson chipboard kit bought from QVC probably 5+ years ago. I covered the naked chipboard and edges of the photo mat in microfine glitter to match the glitter on the sheet of MME Lost and Found die cut paper. I finished the layout with some glittery butterfly stickers

This is Anita's stunning layout which was the inspiration for mine and the rest of the design teams layouts .............

........ and this is Lynn's sketch.

Please pop along to Scrapology to take part in the challenge. The prize up for grabs is amazing!
