Moving Day

Well the time has come to pack up all my things and move to.....Wordpress! I've been mulling over it for a while now, and with all the changes to Blogger it's time to move.  I've been with Blogger since 2007 and I've made so many friends in the crafting community.  I hope you'll follow me over and continue the fun with me :)

This is great

Today I have the sweetest cake to share with you!  My daughter absolutely loves unicorns, so my house has become overrun with them! Of course, the unicorns have also infiltrated my crafting so I found this gorgeous unicorn cake to colour up and add to a card!

I bought this digi image at Craftin' Dessert Divas and coloured it with pretty pastel Copics and a gold pen.  I added some sparkle to the whipped flowers with clear and silver gems.

For the card, I layered pink cardstock, two doilies and some small paper flowers.  Surrounding the cake you'll find paper straws, pom poms, sequins and gems.

The sentiment was from a pack, and already pre-cut.  I just adhered it with some hot glue.  Finally, I popped on a rose gold clip with hanging pom pom.

I forgot to add that I also stuck down some pastel pink washi in a criss-cross pattern.

Merry Creepmas

I can not believe that Halloween is just around the corner!!  I've joined the August Oddball Challenge which has a "Lost Dolls of Innocent Souls" theme. 

I go for cute spooky most of the time, so I coloured up this little cutie, added some Stickles and a pom pom and then added some friends - a little bat clipart and a pumpkin I got from a Pocket Letter.

There's also some layers of washi tape - one has marbling and the other is Halloween themed.  I also added some pearls, enamel dots and gems for texture.

Just keep swimming

Oh my it has been a while since I crafted.  I have been so busy with Uni, being out on prac and assignments that I haven't had time to play with paper and stickers!

I thought I'd jump back in with a mini pocket letter along the theme of Finding Dory.  She's so cute, and I love the splash of colour that Hank (the septapus) and Marlin & Nemo give the pockets.

I followed a sketch that was provided in the Australian and New Zealand Pocket Letter group.  The first pocket has some little cut-outs that mimic bubbles.  The middle pocket has some sewn on sequins and the last pocket has some themed sprinkles.  I decided to put ocean themed sprinkles in all the pockets, along with gems for sparkle.  Hank, Nemo and Marlin were printed on sticker paper and are adhered on the outside of the pockets for dimension.  I also added some gloss to make Hank shiny.

I loved how random Becky was in the movie, so I had to add her too.  On the left is lots of ribbon and fibre and on the right is some pinata paper that comes with a sticky edge.  The pocket itself was made by carefully cutting a strip of pockets from a nine-pocket page.  This pocket was really simple to make, and just the right start to get back into crafting.

Just keep swimming Dory!

A farewell card

This is a bittersweet post as I say my farewell to Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez.  I have loved being apart of their Design Team but my computer is going into the shop for a long overdue fix and I have to hang up my creating apron for a while.

So my last card is quite fitting as it's a farewell card.  I have used this cute little chick image from Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez and coloured it with my Copics.  I've also added some silver to the strap buckles.

All borders are doodled by me with a fine point pen and papers are from American Crafts.

As you can see the boxes have been packed (lol).  The papers on my cards are bold blue, a cloudy pattern and the yellow rectangles.  I've also added a clip with flower and a little hanging pom pom.

Is it getting chilly in here?

It's getting a little chilly around here now that Winter is on it's way! So I've created a card that's got some cool colours and shimmer fit for a snow princess.

The image I chose is from Kinda Cute by Patricia Alvarez and I coloured it with my Copics.  I then added some silver highlights to the ball in her hand, her headband, belt and shoes.  Lastly, I popped some tiny gems and dots of liquid pearls on.

This is such a sweet image to work with and could be coloured up for any princess or little girl.

I added a We Are Memory Keepers pinata trim to the patterned paper, and also added torn edges and doodling.
