Layers in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are using layers on our projects. I decided to mix some funky "out of this world" colours together with the new Love Aliens. These guys are so much fun to go crazy with. I added some accents in red to go with the red rose and heart I coloured on each of the images. It seemed to work even with the riot of other colours....

Spreading a Little Bit of Love from Tiddly Inks


Just a couple of days ago Christy Croll from Tiddly Inks Stamps offered this gorgeous little freebie on the TI Facebook Page, you can also get it instore HERE, it's called "Be Cool and Love Each Other Penguins". The idea behind it is to spread a little love in these troubling times - a sentiment I know we all wish would happen.

I printed them out onto some gorgeous digi paper - sadly this line has been retired with the closure of the Bearly Mine store but I just adore using the gorgeous designs. I also loved the different colours in the snowflakes and pulled them out to colour up the different penguins - something that helps to symbolise my belief of love conquering diversity, be it the colour of your skin, religion or political views.

I hope you like it

Aurora Wings Challenge #40


Woohooo it's time for another challenge over at Aurora Wings and this time we're celebrating .....


... my favourite time of the year :)

I love nutcrackers and have a bit of a collection on my mantle at Christmas time. I also have several decorations I have made myself over the years so decided it was time to put the 2 together and the perfect choice was to use Mitzi's The Nutcracker Doll. This really is one of the major pluses of digital stamps - being able to print to any size!

From my days as a Folk Art/Tole painter I am lucky enough to have a scroll saw - and a hubby who likes to use it. I printed and cut my image out at 11" tall and also cut an offset of my image which we traced onto a piece of 1/2" thick MDF before cutting him out.


I also decided to make a matching gift card so I cut him out at 4 1/4" tall too - before colouring them up the same and adding some gold glitter highlights. He looks sooo TINY next to his big brother LOL. I painted the wood black before attaching my coloured image using mod podge. I also sealed the image with mod podge before applying a paint on satin varnish to protect it. The only thing left to do is add a small stand at the back to make him more stable - hubby will be onto that after his overseas work trip ;)
And here is a close up of the finished card to go with him - he may yet be a Christmas present for someone and it will be nice to have the matching card.

Anything Goes in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land it's "Anything Goes". My husband recently got to spend some time with our London based daughter and sent me home this gorgeous photo of the 2 of them. It just seemed to work in perfectly with many of the November release dies, inspiring me to do something I rarely do - a 12x12 scrapbook page - please be kind ;)

Tic Tac Toe in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are working with the Tic Tac Toe board on the left. I usually like to try for a full house with these but with CAS being one of the 9 options it makes it a little tough, so I chickened out and went with the 3 across the middle - patterned paper, favourite holiday colour (blue) and snowflakes (on the patterned paper). I also added a few other squares - reindeer, gems and embossing.

Blue Christmas with Bloobel Stamps


While my son uses our dining table to sit practice exams for his high school finals I sit and quietly colour so I don't disturb him. Today I got to colour up Jolly Santa from Bloobel Stamps. These quirky characters just make me smile.

I decided to be a little non-traditional and coloured him in blue - actually a favourite of mine for Christmas even if my home tends to be decorated in more traditional tones of reds and greens. I've paired him with some wonderful laser cut chipboard from Make it Crafty - I LOVE these stacked sentiments and how easy they are to colour up and use on your projects!
