Witch you were here!

Good day crafty peeps!  Ah ha its halloween just around the corner and coincidentally thats the theme for this latest challenge over at That Craft Place.. yes anything spooky will do the trick!!   I have chosen this rather lovely digi, called teen witch, a beautiful Mo Manning image, she is so cute in a spooky sort of way.

 I decided to put my Cameo to full use and cut a Pumpkin, just because I can,  and the lovely frame around my cutie witch is also cut from the Cameo. The papers are Papermania, which cut beautifully on the Cameo, the metal corners are from Lisa's shop.

So all in all a fun card to put together. 

Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment, and I shall know you have been xxxx

Flower power

Hello guys!  Thanks for stopping by for my Inspirational Post for All Dressed Up!  Don't you just love these cute little digi's, and its a pleasure to create a project using these images.

 I really wanted to make this different, so I used a Silhouette cutting file to cut 2 cards, one in cream, one in blue, and stick them back to back, to get that lovely floral look.  When I coloured this digi in with my copics, I was on holiday, and only when I got home I realised it was far too big, so I scanned it and resized it, and now it sits perfectly on an 8x8 card. If you need any info about how I made any element of this card please leave me a message and I will get back to you.

Anyway here she is, one of the Autumn girls.

Chocci's for us!

It's a long story, I am meeting up with a good crafty buddy tomorrow, for a colouring class with the fabulous Clare Rowland!  Yes I know!!! Anyway my turn for chocolates, so I needed a box, like you do!  I have recently treated myself to some Tattered Lace dies, so I used the doily die and the leaf and floral die... so pretty, and perfect for chocolates. Anyway here is the box I made, hope you like it, personally I like it... especially with the chocci's in!!

I was also asked last week what my style is.... that got me thinking because I have never thought about that before, but I do like making practical things, more so now than cards, I do those anyway, but boxes, hangings, wreaths, the list goes on, but that is part of my style. I don't do pretty, I don't do grungy, I do my own thing, anyway thanks for stopping by Lizzy xx

Love - new digi!

Well what do think of this image? Not my colouring in but the line drawing? My partners daughter in law is a terrific artist, she normally draws Manga, but I saw this design as a sketch and asked her to make it into a line drawing for me! Hasn't she done well .... Needless to say I have asked her to do some more!!! If you like what you see leave me a comment. Thank you so much for stopping by xx

Tilda skating angel

Isn't she lovely! My lovely boss let me take a kit home to make up for the shop (Hobbycraft), she wasn't the easiest of things to make, turning through her arms was a bit tricky!  But I love how she turned out and is now in the store in Cambridge tied to a fixture for security!!! She will be coming home with me at some point.

Think pink!

How time flies by.... its challenge time again over at That Craft Place, and this time its all about PINK!  So get your thinking hat on and join in the fun,  you could win a wonderful prize from Lisa. I have used one of her (pack of 3) wooden bags to decorate.

 I have used some very pink decopatch papers to cover it, and as I used Mod Podge it has sealed it too, with a nice glossy finish.  I have used a topper I made about a year ago, when I attended my first Copic colouring workshop and other than a frog this was my first attempt at colouring in,  I am rather proud of my efforts and have waited a long time to use it.  I'm not a magnolia sort of person, but she is cute, pink and just right for a bag.

The butterfly, pearls, and paper from Lisa's shop : That Craft Place.

 So keeping everything nice and simple here it is:

It looks like she is shushing away the butterfly,  pure accident, but I rather like it!  Thank you for stopping by, I so appreciate your comments. xxx

Advent house

One of the joys of working at Hobbycraft is that you see stuff before everyone else, and when this little beauty arrived it didn't stand a chance of getting to the shelves!

Made from MDF it was calling out for a makeover, and thats just what I did. I love blue and white at Christmas, I never seem to be able to decorate my house in those colours, but these home decor type items are perfect.

I chose some lovely papers from Capture the Magic in Soham, such a great shop! And used stickles white lace to give a snow effect, bit of tea dye around the edges of the paper, and after 2 good coats of acrylic in blue and then white the edges were sanded back to distress it a bit.

The drawer fronts were cut on my cameo, with a little heart cut out of the middle so the bead didn't need to be taken off. I am rather pleased with my house, and for £15 at Hobbycraft its a steal!!

Thanks for stopping by xxxx

Daddy's little helper

Welcome to the first Challenge for All Dressed Up I am an official Dressy Girl... well the girl bit is a bit dubious, but hey I'll go with it!! Please visit her page, she is mega mega talented and her designs are fab u lous!!!

The first challenge is Anything goes, easy peasy, not too hard on the brain cells, so I'll do something simple, hey I DON'T think so!! I chose Daddy's Little Helper, and thought watering can... well yes not the first thing you would think of maybe, but thats how my brain goes sometimes!! He was printed and cut via my Silhouette, and on reflection I wish I had cut between his spade and body, but as you know I haven't had my Silhouette very long so still learning... but I love the result, I'm officially in love!!  

 Here he is:

Don't you just love my new watermark?  Looks pretty cool to me, thats for sure!  I hope you like my design, he has been coloured with Copics, the watering can and plant pot were cut on my Silhouette, how clever is that machine, oh by the way call by Lisa's shop at That Craft Place coz she sells them, actually she has sold so many she is getting dizzy!!  Enjoy your day xxxx
