Baby baby

Hello to you!  Yes its challenge time again at That Craft Place, and this time the theme is Baby.... so I chose to make a card and tag. The card is a "diaper" and an SVG file I purchased from The Cutting Cafe, its a good website for unusual things... the tag I free cut with scissors !! Why I chose to do that is beyond me. Anyway I used vintage notes papers from That Craft Place and a lovely digi baby from Meljen's designs. Her digi's are always fun to colour in.  I am quite pleased how this turned out, as I am still a newbie to the Cameo.

Have you noticed I changed the colour of my logo to match, quite like that too!  Thanks for stopping by xx

a bit of colouring, now what?

Hey guys, I'm on me 'olidays,  in sunny Sussex,  well it's been so hot, today is not so sunny but still very warm... I was thinking what I should do with this image below, I coloured her in a few weeks ago, and I really like her,  but I need a project to put her on,  give me some help and come up with some suggestions, and you could win what I make, and when I get home I shall get out my trusty Silhouette and get to work!

The Silhouette store currently has a 50% off their range of cutting files for cakes and cakey stuff, so maybe a box with her on?  I'm going to the store now to find something... if in the meantime you suggest something then I'll go with that!  The one I choose will win what I make!! Cool or what !  Happy days Lizzy xxxx

Candy Fairy

Now another fortnight has passed and its time for another challenge over at That Craft Place, this week it's things with wings,  ah ha, fairies and butterfly's the perfect combination!!!  The Paper Shelter has a fab little fairy call The Candy Fairy, she is perfect for my butterfly box, cut on the Cameo. She is coloured with my Copics of course and a little help from some coloursoft pencils,  but I rather like her,  the original box used another fairy from TPS but I only realised at the last minute she was Grumpy Fairy,  she is also very very cute but hardly the sort of thing to put on a candy gift box!!!!  Anyway I hope you like her,  I do, and I shall be giving this to my Mum for her 83rd birthday full of chocolaty things... yummy...

And this is Grumpy Fairy,  well I couldn't resist showing her off!! I am using her for something else,  so nothing wasted in my craftyland..

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful weekend. xx

Lily and Milly

You know when to spot a bargain, and you just have to have it.. well yesterday I popped into a local cheap store in Newmarket, and found a fab wooden distressed sign for £2!!! What!! Yes I had to have it,  it does have "Bathroom" in pink painted on the front, but hey we are crafters arn't we?  Not letting that get in the way... so I covered it, of course!  I used a lovely image from All Dressed Up, here is there Etsy page for the digital stamp I used I love my puppy. Take a look, the images are really cute. Anyway they have a DT call and I thought I might apply,  here is my sign... I've used Vintage notes papers, vinyl for the words, my Cameo cut out the bits and bobs, and the digi is coloured with Copics.

 I hope you like it... Lily is my Granddaugher and Milly is my puppy, a match made in heaven... xxx

And just for fun I have entered into these challenges:

Fairy Tea

There are times when only fairies will do,  I love this image from The Paper Shelter, and as they are after new DT members I thought why not!  So I did this one especially, I used my Copics and Coloursoft pencils to colour it in, I made one of the background papers as a frame in Serif, and placed my finished card inside, I quite like the effect for the bloggie pic... now I can give this card to my beautiful Granddaughter Lily, who loves to craft and love fairies,  the perfect combination. Oh and I cut out some of the flowers to layer up, a bit of hybrid crafting never comes amiss me thinks.  Happy crafting peeps xxx

And if you love TPS then look out for my blog post on Sunday for That Craft Place,  I use the Candy Fairy, I say no more! xxx

This little image at the side shows the card before I put it in the digital frame,  it gives a much better and clearer pic of my colouring and design.

Bird song

Good morning crafty peeps, and yes another fortnight has flown by (excuse the pun) and it's challenge time over at That Craft Place. The theme this week is music, and for what ever reason only known to someone else I chose to make a bird hanging... there were times that I wished I had made a card, anything other than my bird hanging. As it happens I quite like it,  and the actual hanging in real life is ok!  It's about 30 inches long, with dangly jewellery bits... another story, needless to say I am enrolling on a jewellery making course for beginners!

I cut the birds on my Cammy, and the fabric too. I stuck together 2 birds so it can hang and twist etc and looks the same from both sides. The Cammy cut the fabric beautifully I have to add. I used the remaining fabric to make flowers... Kusudama style. I then used beads, chains and buttons to finish it off.

I hope you like it too!  Thank you for visiting my blog. Please leave a comment so I know you have
