EEEkkkk exciting news ~ Crafty Ribbons

So Super Excited to say.......
I am now part of the Crafty Ribbons DT

I have always loved Ali's lovely Ribbons and a few years back made various ribbon samples for shows etc ,so it was an honour to become part of the team.
The only problem I can see is what ribbons to choose for my upcoming projects, Oh My drool, drool there are so many to choose from, I have so many ideas I had to start my own notebook.

I have my Granddaughter staying (again) for a few weeks , we just love crafting together, so I let her choose what we should make. We made this on Tuesday after a visit on Monday to the safari park where she had spotted Reindeers so this was quite an apt make.
Using a couple of files from SIL store I cut out the bag and the gift card holder and Felicity glued them together. We added some googly eyes . Felicity made two little red bows and stuck them on , and then adhered the little golden bells.
I attached the ribbon bag handle.

 Once the holly was stuck on I gave it a shine of glossy accents.

And this is the lushness we used from Crafty Ribbons
Bows - 7mm Country check
Bag strap and Gift card holder strip - Christmas Owl Ribbon
Button - Basics 2 Go Buttons

Polkadoodles Crafting Challenge

Happy Friday Everyone!
Here today for 
*Anything Goes*

For my project this week I have mainly used the lovely collection 
Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles
I have made a Pocket page mini album which was cut on my portrait.
I loved using all the delish papers
this really was a labour of Love but so much fun

All the tags were coloured using Polychromo Pencils
Mounted onto cardstock
and then attached different coloured Organza Swiss dots ribbons ~ you can find these here, from Crafty Ribbons

The inside contains more pictures from the collection along with some quotes
(see more in the moving pictures below)

I finished off adding   a charm and some shells
For the seaweed on the front I used the fantastic Cherry blossom die

Starfish & Sandcastles by Felicity

I really wanted to share with you this game that Felicity made
She made it at one of her summer craft classes but as soon as she was home reconstructed it.

Felicity made the background colured with pencils
and used the Polkadoodles collection
for the creatures ( I cut these out for her)
Felicity coloured these 
and added randomn numbers to the back of each one
As we wanted the game to last I laminated them (optional)
and then she popped a paper clip on each one so they become magnetic
Using her rod she had made at class
all thats needed here is wood, string and a small magnet
The game was complete
Simply pop them behind the background so no one can see them
dangle your rod and fish away
You could vary the game -i.e the highest number wins
letters on the back - spell something
My little Grandson visited on Sunday he loved playing 
Thank you for looking 
P.s ignore the numbers on the front I have added those as I am using this for our Polkadoodles weekly game on facebook - why not pop over and join us you could win a prize xx

Live in the Sunshine

I have had an afternoon of stamping fun
and decided this time on a bookmark for my Granddaughter Felicity
She loves reading and joined in the Summer reading challenge at our local library.
She has her own book bag for when she comes to stay but all the bookmarks we have made she has taken home so here is the start of a few for here.
I know she will love this but may not be too happy that I've used shrinkles without her she loves the magic paper!!

I have used watercolour card I like to use this when using the Distress Oxides 
So the background was done using Oxides - Salty Ocean ~Broken China ~Peacock Feathers and Lucky Clover - The stamping (except for the sentiment ) was done using Faded Jeans.

The actual bookmark was Salty Ocean and then spritzed
I then did the background and gave a good spritz and added droplets of water
I used stamp set
Wish you were here
The sentiment was stamped and then cut out
I coloured the starfish and the dolphin using my lovely polychromo pencils
adhered the starfish 

added one of the dolphins with a few foam tabs and the other which had been stamped on shrinkles was attacked with my heat gun 
I soooooo love him, uber cutness

I finished of with splashes of white pen and a little doodling with black pen
and a slice of ribbon

Polkadoodles Crafting ~Christmas Organiser

Happy Friday to you all hope you all have a great weekend
I am sharing with you a Christmas Organiser that I made
It took a few days to make but I did love the outcome.
I started of with the file from Sandra's that you can find here

I used buff card from Papermill direct as its nice and sturdy and a good colour choice for a Christmas project
Once my project was all cut out I  inked the edges with walnut stain distress ink.
I then used the lovely
Winnie Winterland to decorate
this was totally fun
Not only is it decorated outside but also inside
I filled it with bits n bobs for Christmas
Like tags, cards, bows, flowers etc
This is the inside that lifts out

and here is the drawer that pulls out
 A quick look at the inside
Some cards with matching envelopes

I totally loved making this and already have plans to make another
Here is a little capture of many more photos there really is so much to see
