Well, I must confess, I am really bad at this blogging thing. I have made a ton of cards, but unfortunately, they never made it onto my blog. I have some exciting news though. I am now on the design team for Cute N Crafty If you click on this link, it will take you to the challenge blog where there is a new challenge with awesome cards from the design team.
Here is my take on the Challenge #17, which is anything goes, but I figure, it is still December so I will make at least one more Christmas card.
The image I have used is from Polkadoodles and is called Rudolph Onesies.

I know what you're thinking. Another Halloween card? Well, I'm sort of on a roll at the moment and these images are just too cute to leave un carded. (Not sure that is a word). I am learning so much about colouring since taking the course by Kit and Clowder. I would have never thought to colour the Zombie skin in green like this image, but it's pretty cute... for a Zombie, that is.
Seriously, how darn cute is this image from Tiddlyinks.
Here is the sketch that I have used for this card, although I did replace some circles with squares and maybe kind of rotated the sketch around a bit, but that's the beauty of sketches. If you want to play along with the challenge, here is the link. Freshly Made Sketches

I am really enjoying my colouring at the moment. I used this image from Tiddlyinks to create this card for their challenge at tiddlyinks challenge. This theme was Spookaboo! and although this little fellow isn't really all that scary, he was fun to colour.
I used some old paper from Stampin Up and I used my distress inks to create the night time theme. I love this little fellow. Well, actually, I love all the images at Tiddlyinks.

Today, I would like to share a card I made this morning. It is made from the newest stamp set in my collection called Painted Harvest, and may I say, it is quickly becoming one of my many favourites. I made this card for a class card and used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. I must confess, I am a sketch-aholic. They are so handy, and open to interpretation. So here is my card.
I love the way this card turned out. The patterned paper in the background.. well, it is not designer paper, I have hand stamped the background using the same stamp set. Here is the sketch I used.

Well, I have been getting into a bit of digital scrapbooking lately. I am loving the ease of putting elements together and having my memories brought to life. This is the latest page I have finished of my children having a bit of fun together. Believe me this is pretty rare.
Love, love, love this page.

I received an email the other day with some awesome news from Tiddly Inks. They have released some amazing colouring pages. You all know how I love to colour. So the Challenge was to use flowers, or have flowers on your project. So, after racing to the online store, and purchasing these colouring books, I decided that this image was going to be just fine for what I needed. ALTHOUGH I now have heaps of different images to choose from.
It is a bit tricky to see, but I have turned this colouring page into an easel card. I have kept embellishing down to a minimum as to not over power the main focus of the colouring. To colour this stamp I used a combination of Copic Markers and pencils, (which is something I have been doing quite a lot lately), I love the way they gel together to get the required texture.

If you hurry, you can still catch the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches, and I do mean hurry. I made this card using the sketch below. I was sure that I had missed the deadline, but it is still open. Yeah! Here is another digital image from little miss muffet stamps and her name is Mitzi. I am so in love with these images. They are great to colour.
I was going through my emails this morning and I found an amazing challenge by the paper players.
It is a tic tac toe challenge, which I love, so I had to make this card....well, I didn't have to, but I wanted to. I decided to go with the Pink, Die cut and twine section. So, the image is from little miss muffet stamps and her name is Roxie. I coloured Roxie with my copics and used scrap bits of paper I had laying around my craft room. Love the way this one turned out. Awesome images and great fun to colour.

So, if your a regular player of Stampin Royalty Challenges, you will notice that they have changed to Fortnightly instead of weekly. This is due to the fact that we are busy people, well, we like to pretend we are busy. Lol
The challenge, which again, I am late in posting, is all about Dies. Create a card or scrapbook page, or anything really, using your dies. Here is my card I made.

Here we go! I have nearly reached and surpassed my total blogging amount from 2016. Well, I must confess, it was a good break, but not intentional. Here is my layouts (notice the S) for the start of this extremely busy month. I plan to have a lot of things accomplished this year, but you will have to wait until I finish more pages to see what they are.
Well. I have been missing for so long, I really don't know where to begin.
I guess, I will begin with a cover page for 2017 Project Life. Yes, I have decided to go digital this year. I just do not have the time or dedication to go physical. So here it is. My very first page layout for 2017.

So finally after a few months, I have decided to go plain and simple with my Project Life 2016. I found the process was not overly enjoyable, and the pages were taking far too long to complete. Here is my week 1 and Week 2. Hopefully things will go a little bit smoother now.
Week 1 for January 2016
Week 2 for January 2016
Over at Stampin Royalty this week, we have a Butterfly challenge for you to play along with. It's very simple. Using whichever products you like, create a project using a butterfly, then enter you card on the Stamping Royalty site. Very simple. Go ahead and try.

Here is my first ever Month in Review page. I have used the template from Two Tiny Turtles and the Digital kit from Digital Scrapbook Ingredients all from Sweet Shoppe Designs. (Including a few little bits from various kits I already had). I love the ease of Digital Project Life. I think I changed my mind at least 10 times on this one.
This week over at stamping royalty we have a picture inspiration for you to play with. I love the mint and gold together. I created another Project Life page using the colours in the inspiring picture below. Go check out the site and see what the others have come up with using the same picture.

Well, I must confess, it has been a while since I have blogged. Mainly due to password and log in issues, but they seem to have sorted themselves out now. No excuses...
Here is the project I made for Stamping Royalty this week. The subject was entitled Masculine Cards.
Have I told you that I am super hooked on Kathy Orta albums at the moment. I'm sure I have. So, I have made this little album (one of many) and used it to highlight my son's photos for 2015.
I have used (mostly) Stamping Up papers for the cover and inserts.
The inserts pull out from each page giving a load of room for pictures.
Here is the middle of the card insert, with room for 6x4 photo, journaling and a pull out tag inserted into the pocket.
Here is the outside of the insert with another photo and a Project life Journaling card.
The album cover is not quite finished yet, but when it is, I will upload all the photos.

Yes, you heard me right! I have been on a little crazy spell at the moment. I found this book last week. if you like creating albums, it's an amazing book.
This is the front cover of the book I brought. It's written by the Queen of Interactive Scrapbooks, Kathy Orta, hopefully this link will work for you.
I will try and blog a few pages to show you what I have been making.

I just love this image from Little Miss Muffet Stamps. She is a digital from the Polka Dot series.
I made this card with these two challenges in mind. The first one being a colour challenge from Color Throwdown and the second one being the sketch challenge from Freshly Made Sketches

This week over at Stampin Royalty we have a picture to inspire you creativity. I did, however struggle with this one, so I went with the colours. It looked a little plain, so I added a star under the penguin.
