Christmas & Autumn challenge

Can you believe it’s already the first day of September? Where did the time go? in less than 3 months, we’re about to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year!

Today is the perfect time to start those holiday preparations (lots of cards for me), just in time to prep by joining in this month’s challenge at a2z Scrapbooking blog, this month’s theme- Autumn & Christmas 🙂

I used the Tree-mendous digikit on this project. I printed the very light green tree at the background then printed two (2) other trees which I cut & colored with promarker. Noticed that I’ve been loving coloring with markers lately? 🙂  An easy way to bring bright festive colors to digital images.

I popped them using dimensional adhesive and added some glitz using Wink of Stella clear glitter pen.

I have a lot of washi tapes so better use the red one here, and the thin strip with b&w lines on it.

Stamped packaging

Hello every one!

Have you sometimes wondered how to get plain packaging pouch to look more encouraging than a plain white paper to put things in?

I’m sharing a packaging project at a2z Scrapbooking blog today addressing this thought. Here’s a sneak peek of what I did so visit the a2z Scrapbooking blog to see how I packaged a card and some sweets. It’s a great way to mass produce too to use in party favors. Go can go here for more details.

Abi Ballerina

I recently found the All Dressed Up Stamps  blog and got this cute digi ballerina named Abi to work with. Their shop has a lot of pretty digi stamps, just great for coloring.

I colored her with Promarkers and fuzzy cut the image to pop her with foam adhesives. I also added some random pink pearls in her tutu just because. The pink jute twine is from Sarah Hurley and the sentiment from Paper Smooches.
