Sugar Bowl - anything goes

Morning,
it's time for a new challenge at The Sugar Bowl, themed Anything goes. 

I made a wish list using Words from the Heart from Furry Friends, cause I figured that we usually take out the wish list before Christmas but things we want pop up all through the year so why not have a wish list that can hang in the kitchen all year round?

So, for your chance to win some gorgeous Sugar Nellie digis, hop over to the challenge blog and participate.

Allsorts - anything but Christmas

Woohoo, last day in school yesterday and now it's Christmas holiday for real!

At Allsorts the theme is Anything but Christmas. And to give the wonderful Design Team some well earned holiday the challenge will run for two weeks. I made a steampunk hat for this challenge. It's a sewing pattern for a fleece hat but it worked out fine to make it from paper. Free pattern here.

Allsorts - Golden days

This week I'm hosting the challenge at Allsorts and I set the theme Golden Days. Use gold on your card or perhaps you can interpret it in another clever way :).

I used golden embossing powder for the sentiment and for the swirl pattern on the corners of the card, and some gold coloured ribbon.


Sponsoring us is A day for daisies, they have lovely digital images for a lucky winner.

Allsorts - CAS

This week at Allsorts the theme is Clean and Simple (CAS) and that is usually very much of a challenge for me but I think I got it done in the end :).
Stamps from Reprint, stamped the tree twice without new ink to get the faded look. I know the card looks absolutely wonky but it's the way it stood in the photo box, nuff said :)

We've got two prizes; Images from Scrapper's Delight and a paper pack so do join in!

Sugar Bowl challenge - Anything goes

Time for a new Anything goes-challenge at the Sugar Bowl. Using the image Rosie. She's adorable but I think she might be retired cause I can't find her in the shop.
I actually started by making her dress blue but then I decided to make a robust autumn card and had to redo the colouring so I paper pieced it by stamping on a glossy cream paper and cutting out the dress. Worked rather nicely :) If you look really closely you can see that the creme dress is slightly lower than the original image but that's only if you look really close ;)

Allsorts - anything but a card

Morning,
the challenge at Allsorts this week is themed Anything but a card. These are my favourite challenges, but you already knew that :).
I made a shoe and decorated it with lace, pearls and pink roses. I found the template for the shoe here. It's very decorative in itself and also lovely to use as a gift if you put a small bag of candy in it.

Morning,
the challenge at Allsorts this week is themed Orange/Purple/Black. Use all or any two. The silly camera made the backing paper text look very goldish but it is very orange, for real! Another sentiment found online, I will put it for safe keeping in the Freebie section in the top bar as soon as I come home from London :).

GDT for Penny Black and More

It's time for a new challenge at our sister challenge Penny Black and More and it's my turn to be the guesting Allsorts designer. The theme for September is Anything goes.
I used an image called Butterfly suite and just lightly coloured it. The image in itself is lovely so I just punched the card edge and tied a ribbon.

Allsorts - Lots of layers

Morning,
the challenge at Allsorts this week is themed Lots of layers. I made a shabby chic card that actually looks very dirty which it isn't in real life, damned be the camera! But the layers are obvious anyway :)

Allsorts - recycle or upcycle

Morning,
the challenge at Allsorts this week is themed Recycle or upcycle. So I thought I'd share my fairy door that I made for the garden.


I started with some popsicle sticks and wooden blocks. Distressed everything with Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain, then glued the popsicle sticks for a door and the wooden blocks for stairs.

We are sponsored by Crafty Ribbons and Scrapper's Delight this week so hurry over and enter. I'm sure there are lots of things you can recycle and make wonderful projects from.
