PolkaDoodles Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun - Gingerbread Love!

You'll be pleased to know that this is the last of my samples from Friday's show! It was another super quick and easy make and I will be remaking this one for a few friends who love Gingerbread Men!


Everything other than the doily, buttons, string and red striped ribbon is from the collection (even those cute little candy canes which have been given a 3D effect simply by adding some Glossy Accents).

Thanks for stopping by today.

PolkaDoodles Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun Clean & Simple Christmas Card

Are you sick of seeing me yet? Lol. Don't worry I'll disappear again for a little while soon! I just needed to get all my samples blogged before I lose the photos or life stops me from blogging again!

Anyway, this is yet another of my samples that I made for the PolkaDoodles Create and Craft Show. It's a really quick and easy make, so ideal for those batch Christmas Cards.


I hope you like it?

Thanks for stopping by.

Picnix Nordic Christmas, Take One Make Three More - Part Four

Today I'd like to show you the final card that I have created from the canvas shown in this blog post. This really couldn't be any easier or quicker to make as I've simply printed out the scanned image, matted it onto some card and chucked on a bit of glitter and Glossy Accents.


I hope you've been inspired by this little series of makes and I'd love it if you could show me anything you make. Just remember before you scan your piece of artwork that you've created to check with the original artist to ensure that they don't mind.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Picnix Nordic Christmas, Take One Make Three More - Part 3


This is another project that I made using the scanned canvas image. Again it was really quick and easy and allowed me to use other items that I had in my stash.


I've tried to achieve different looks with each of the cards that I made from the canvas. This was my vintage card. I have to say I think it's my favourite one and I was a little sad to give it away!


Tomorrow I'll post the final card made from the original canvas. So if you're interested please feel free to stop by.

Picnix Nordic Christmas, Take One Make Three - Part Two. An Acetate Card

Good morning. I'm back again as promised with one of the projects that I made using the Canvas from this post. Sorry for the pictures in this post but acetate is a complete nightmare to photograph!


As I said previously I scanned the canvas into my computer and simply printed it out to create more projects. This curved front acetate card literally took twenty minutes to create and yet looks like you've put loads of effort into into it.


I won't bore you with a step by step, but if you have any questions please do feel free to ask. I always get back to people :)

Thanks for stopping by today.

Take One Make Three Using PolkaDoodles Picnix Collection 3

You're probably wondering what I'm babbling on about huh? Well Friday saw the launch of the fantastic Picnix 3 Collection from PolkaDoodles and I loved it so much that I felt inspired to make a few samples but as always seems to be the way with me at the moment I didn't have a lot time to play. So I decided to cheat a little and made one piece of art which then produced a further three projects. I'll show you these over the next couple of days.


The piece of art in question is a mixed media canvas using one of the stunning backing papers from the collection, some modelling paste and acrylic paints. Once I was happy with my background I printed the robin image from the CD onto some tissue paper and coloured it with Prisma Pencils before adding it to the canvas.

I then scanned the canvas into the computer and use it to create the previously mentioned projects (before you do this please check with the original artist that they are happy for you to do this - the majority are, provided you meet and agree to certain conditions). I was amazed at how well it scanned and re-printed and the best part is it'll be there for me whenever I need quick make!

As is always the way when you leave a piece and come back to it, I decided that it needed something more. So I chucked a bit of Frantage over it and stamped and heat embossed some snowflakes.


I hope you like this project and that you will return to see the other pieces that I've created from it?

Thanks for stopping by today.

PolkaDoodles Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun Advent Calendar

Cooeeee... only me! Blimey I hadn't realised how long it ago it was that I blogged! Sorry about that - I am trying to get life more sorted so that I can create and blog regularly, but life keeps putting obstacles in my way! That said I'll be blogging a few makes over the coming days, so for those of you who are interested keep your eyes peeled.


So who caught this morning's PolkaDoodles show on Create Craft TV? Well if didn't, you missed a cracking show! I was lucky enough to get to make some samples for it using the new Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun Collection and the Picnix 3 Nordic Winter Collection.


This is one of the samples that I made using papers and images from the new Twiggy & Toots Festive Fun Collection which is available as a digital download or CD).


This project didn't turn out quite as I envisioned it and as I was tight on time there was nothing I could do with it other than crack on and get it completed. I hope you like it. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to answer. Sorry for the photo overload!


Thanks for stopping by today.
