Happy Birthday card using dies and ink sprays...

Hello All!  
Ruth here with something quite quick (well, if you take out the drying time) and simple to make using ink sprays (purple and blue) and then a silver spray that was gifted to me a long time ago.

I layered it onto black card before adding to my card blank.  To keep it as flat as I possibly could, I pop it under the cushion that I sit on at my crafting table (its a really hard chair) and that seems to do the trick!
I cut the Posydoodles Happy Birthday dies three times out of the silver card, glued them together (again under the cushion on my chair) and then added to the front of the card.

See you next time!

Journaling with the Creative Doodles Collection

I am very new to the whole journaling idea, mainly because I just like to create and never think about keeping my work after making it. However we keep saying to everyone print off your photos, record your memories etc etc and this is, to me, what a journaling book is about. Keeping your projects to reflect back on, plus record your creating style(s). Do you use journals? What do you record in them or use them for? I'd love to see how, whay & why you have used yours.

Right on to my project. I created this whimsical page using lots of elements from the Polkadoodles Creative Doodles Collection and thoroughly enjoyed myself, just playing ...

Using Polkadoodle Creative Stencils as the focal point on your card

Whilst tidying up my craft space the other day, I came across some backgrounds I had created a wee while ago and it seemed such a shame to throw them away. Although dark, I had a plan, (sort of ish), so grabbed my Polkadoodles Creative stencils and began playing ...

Delicate Heart

Hello crafty friends, Dawny P here and this is something completely different for me today. 

I've always envied all the beautiful mixed media projects that I've seen on social media and thought that I'd have a go with the wonderful array of products that we have available from Polkadoodles. This is a pic heavy post but I do hope that if, like me, you've wanted to dip your toes into the world of mixed media but found it all a bit daunting, it will help.

So firstly, this is the finished project ...

Morrocan Daisy

Hello lovely crafty friends - Dawny P here and today I've kind of gone off piste a bit.

I've had my eye on the floral image from Daisy Friends for a while now and also the Moroccan Screen stencil, so I decided to combine them both, and  ....

 ... this is what I did.

This image ticks so many boxes for me and I know I've said this before but my favourite stamps and products etc are those that can cover a multitude of occasions. This is one - even sympathy (I know we don't like doing them but sometimes you just need them), this one works for everything.

Birthday for the boys

Hello!  Ruth here!  
I admit, I am a bit of a hoarder and I don't like to throw off-cuts of paper or card away unless its tiny.  So I have a few folders that they all go in, with same download or cd clipped together for easy future reference.

Lots of things Video Tutorial

Hi everyone, Lou here today with a video tutorial for you...

Last week Nikky launched a fabulous selection of collage stamps on Hochanda - 3 different designs: Wings & ThingsQueen of Hearts plus Flower Collage - with smaller add on stamp sets. The designs are incredibly versatile and can used to be the focal point of your project, create impressive backgrounds or alternatively, just use a portion of the design. Each stamp set easily crosses over from journaling to card making, from mixed media to scrapbooking or just being a piece of art in their own right.

Recently I was asked after the show how I chose the colours I wanted to use in my projects. Now there are a lot of answers I could give but the main thing I always say is look to the packaging. The coloured graphics used are a great source of inspiriation, so with this in mind, I have created a quick tutorial using the coloured graphics from the Wings & Things Collage packaging ...
