Creative Fingers Challenge – buttons

I am using a Drawn with Character digi today, it it a simple silhouettte that is a perfect foil for this Daisy Trail digikit, which is called New Year 2012.  The Banner is cut from a Joanna Sheen die and the tiny heart embellishments came from the same die-cut.  the topper is finished with frantage in shabby white and is mounted onto a giftbag.

Scrapper’s Delights – New Release Sneakpeak


Hello all, I have a really exciting post for you today, which gives you s sneakpeak at the New releases from Scrapper’s Delights – these will be available from tomorrow, from the Scrapper’s Delights store.  The best news is…that you could win them all!!


The new digi that I am previewing today is called Bat Woman 2  – Ideal for some Hallowe’en fun!


I decided though, that I wanted to colour her to look more like a nymph or fairy so I’ve chosen a soft colour palatte of Promarkers.  I printed her twice and cut one out to make a mask then used Colour Box chalks to make the background. The bird cage is cut with a Spellbinders die and coloured with the same chalk as the background and the Hunkydory sentiment was edged in the same way.  The papers used were free in a magazine last year and I dug out some flowers from my stash to finish it off.

Pop along to our fun challenge to win prizes

I’ll be entering these challenges: – die-cuts – make believe, fairies, fairytales winged things – things with wings – unusual/unexpected (vampire bat in pink!!) – use dies anything goes

Take a look at the Scrapper’s Delights store for somr great sale bargains.

Yours in crafting,

Tags for a farewell tag tree

Our curate is leaving our church this month having completed his training, and is moving to his own parish in The Netherlands.  He has been with us for 3 yers and he, his wife and their 3 children will be greatly missed.  Instead of cards, it was decided that every member of the church would complete a parcel tag with a personal message so that the family can hang them in their new home as a reminder to their time spent in the West of England.

“How lovely” I thought, then, “How dull!”  Of course I couldn’t just write on a plain tag so have decorated some for my family to complete.

I’ve used various brands to create these tags – the one in the middle is mide with a Christian scrapbook paper from Time to Sow.  I made a simple collage to highlight the phrases  thought most appropriate.  The other two were made using Hunkdory ‘Timeless Elegance’.


The frst tag – Friends – will be entered into the following challenges: – sketch – sentiment with word friend

The Tag on the right will be entered into these challenges: – tags – flowers + butterfly + diecut – dust off your old supplies – bugs and butterflies – anything with wings – anything with a B – things with wings

Thanks for looking,
