Hi everyone

We have a fantastic challenge on over at Magnolia Downunder
Challenges this week, it's 'Christmas in July'
The Design Team have made some gorgeous, ispirational pieces
so why not pop on over and hav a look :oD

I wanted to do something a little different with this challenge,
with all the toy sales going on, I tend to go a bit nuts. My kids
both have December birthdays and I tend to grab bargains all
year long. By the end of the year, once I find all my hidden
bargains, I have enough for birthdays and christmas for a
couple years hahaha. But it works well, because I can shuffle
things around and quite often have gifts ready and waiting for
other kids on my gift list.

I am determined to be organised this Christmas, not only with
gifts, but with groceries, recipes that I want/need etc. This has
prompted me to make a 'Christmas Planner' to hopefully make
things run a little smoother...

I have made 4 little books that slip inside this folders pockets
The first book is to record friend's/family names and gifts, so you
can keep track of who you have already brought gifts for. I know
I sometimes forget, and my list grows longer each year!
I have some favourite recipes that I love using each year and
there are always new, yummy recipes we like to try, so I think
I definately need a book to keep all these yummy treats. I know
it will come in handy at the end of the year, when I forget what
ingredients I need for a particular recipe hehehe.
I have an ever growing list of Traditions and things that I need to
do throughout December. This booklet will be great for reminders
and hopefully every task will be covered in time for Christmas
without the "Oh no, I forgot..."
And finally, there's bound to be something else we need, so how
about a note book, where you can jot anything else that you
think of :oD
The folder ties neatly shut with ribbon, keep everything inside.
The back of the folder. I found this quote and the ones inside,
in a copy of the Kaisercraft workshop magazines that you used
to be able to pick up for free at your local scrapbook shop.

I know, it's been a long post, but it was alot of fun making this
and I thought I'd show each piece :oD
Oh the christmas tree on the cover was made using a scallop
circle punch from stampin up. I just cut wedges from ech circle
to make the tree shape and added rhinestones for baubles and
a star on top.

Stamps            Magnolia - Santa with sack, Sitting Santa, Tilda with candy
                         cane, Oops Tilda, Sweet Tilda. Alota stamps - Santa's sleigh
Papers            Real red and Old Olive cardstock. SU Christmas papers
Other              Asst christmas quotes, christmas stickers/shapes, stickles
                        Ribbon, rhinestones, Christmas lights font.

You're a star!

Hi everyone
I have just made a card for The Burtonesque Dolls
challenge #11 "Wood you like to be in a movie?"
taking inspiration from "Ed Wood" and creating
something in Black and white.

I absolutely LOVE working with Black and White, it allows
me to play with my lead pencils again :oD

When I first saw this stamp the first  thought that came
to my mind was of Faye Dunaway in 'Bonnie and Clyde'
I just Love that movie, and I have dedicated this card to the
wonderful actress, with pics from the movie, a handmade
filmstrip and her Hollywood Star.

I have used 30's Lylah, which you will find HERE at Tickled
Pink Stamps

Thanks for stopping by :oD
Please feel free to leave a comment, I really do appreciate
your thoughts.

Happy Stamping!

Ahoy there Matey!

Hi everyone
Today at Magnolia Downunder Challenges we have an awesome
challenge for you "One for the Boys" I would really LOVE to
see lots of entries this week, as we never really see alot of boys
cards and with all the gorgeous Edwins available, there should
be loads of inspiration for us all. You don't even actually have
to have an Edwin on your card, just as long as there is atleast
one Magnolia image :oD

I have made a Pirate Invitation using stamps from the recent
Fairytale collection of Magnolia stamps, plus a few other
images in my stash :oD
The pirate ship is a digital image and I have used some of the
black mesh ribbon that Kellie sells at Tickled Pink Stamps
and kind of bunch it up to look like fishnets in the first and last
images, and the little pirate map is a Kraftin' Kimmie accessory
stamp also available at Kellie's store.

The Pirate map in this image ia another digital image and I found
a pirate font and made the invation details on my computer,
leaving the blanks to be filled in later :o)
The pirate coins were in a favour bag  from a previous party
and I've added a skull and crossbone brad.

The flag is from Tilda with a Jolly Roger and the treasure chest
with parrot is a stampin up stamp. The boat in the background
is another brad. Ive just torn card to create the sand and the sea.

Stamps          Magnolia Fairytale - Pirate Edwin, Barrel and Anchor,
                       Captain Edwin
                       Other - Kraftin Kimmie - Genevieve's map, SU - Matey
Papers          Once upon a time - Treasure map, black cardstock
Embellishmants       Pirate coins, skull and crossbone brad, Pirate ship,
                                    black mesh ribbon, white gel pen

Tickled Pink Stamps Monthly challenge #3

Hello everyone
How has your week been, did you enjoy the Lil' Lolita
previews? I know I did ;oD
As part of my guest DT spot for Tickled Pink Stamps
I get to make a DT card for challenge #3, woohoo :oD
This month we are using a sketch for inspiration, which
I will post below my card.

I have used the New range of Lil' Lolita Fashionette
stamps, because, I just think that they are fantastic!
You can buy them all HERE now and they can be
shipped Internationally too!

So onto my card...

I used these two girl charms to embellish my sentiment, as I
thought they'd be ideal for best friends, the image is stamped
into both sides allowing you to make them face toward each
other. I removed the shanks and stuck them either side. They
were available at Tickled Pink Stamps.

Here is the sketch, designed by Kellie Winnell...

Stamps            Lil' Lolita Fashionette 'Ivy' and ;Willow'
Papers            Cosmo Cricket "Material Girl" and lemon and melon cardstock
Embellishments     Tassle ribbon, mesh ribbon, friends charm, girl charms,
flowers and leaves are all from Tickled Pink Stamps. Butterflies, stickles.
