Ready for Christmas?

Christmas is just around the corner – yes it’s true!  It is the beginning December and we can no longer deny that Christmas will be here before we know it.  Am I ready? Ummmm…no.  You?  Will I be soon?  Ummmm…no.  You? The truth is that I am never really ready for Christmas to arrive, but I make due!

The good news is that I do have some Christmas decorating up and we have been enjoying it for a few weeks now…like this little printer tray that I created with Doodlebug’s Milk and Cookies collection. 

This printer tray is just slightly bigger than 12×12, so when I was deciding what to embellish the compartments with, the Odds and Ends were a perfect fit – literally!

There is a lot of Doodlebug goodness in this project, so if you are interested in seeing more, pop on over to the Doodlebug blog!

It’s my birthday!

It’s my birthday!  And am I going to tell you how old I am?  Um – no!  But I am going to share a fun little card I made using the super cute set from Tiddly Inks called Fun Animals!

If you haven’t seen this little digi set, it is filled with a bunch of cute little animals together with some great accessories.  You can layer the accessories on top of the animals like I did for this one (a party hat on top of the rabbit) or just leave each as a stand alone (like I did with the presents)!  They really are cute as can be (and a really easy colour as well if you are need of a quick card).

I teamed up this little bunny with some of my favourite Doodelbug paper…and yes, I do have my Copics sorted to match Doodlebug’s colour palette (it makes colouring and matching to paper and accessories a breeze).

So, I am going to go and enjoy some cake – you should too (just in case you need a reason to have cake)!

Hugs from mummy!

Halloween is just around the corner and I have to admit that I am having so much with Halloween crafts this year! A few years ago, Halloween was not a time of year that I got all excited about in the crafts department…until I discovered the world of cute spook crafting…like this cute stamp from Tiddly Inks called Pum’kin Juice Party.

This month over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog, we have a challenge all about Halloween, so I thought it might be fun to pull together another sample to inspire some more creations.  This cute was coloured up with Copics to match some of Doodlebug’s newest Halloween-themed collection – Booville.  Teamed up with a handwritten sentiment from this “mummy”, I can’t wait to give this to one of my little munchkins in a couple of weeks.

How about you?  Do you have any Halloween crafts on the go right now?

Halloween fun!

It’s Halloweens time!  Okay, it’s not quite Halloween time, but it is time to get Halloween crafty!  And the good news is that Christy from Tiddly Inks has some new goodies to get us all excited about getting the good old markers out!

Now, the truth of the matter is that there are no shortage of cute Halloween images over at Tiddly Inks!  But today, I wanted to introduce you to my favourite little collection called Pum’kin Juice Party.  This set comes with a whole bunch of cute kitty-themed images that will have you crafting from now right up until Halloween – not only because there are so many, but because they are so cute that you won’t want to stop!

 

 

I teamed up these images with some cute paper from Doodlebug.  This is one of their new collection called Booville.  It has lots of great colours to work with, and I find that it is really easy to match my Copics with Doodlebug’s colours.

It makes for easy work when I am colouring, and while I love a good crafting challenge every now and again, struggling to find coordinating paper is not one of them!

Now, given that it is the first Tuesday of the month, that also means that it is challenge time at the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog. If you hadn’t guessed, the theme is Spookaboo, so we are all about Halloween.  If you haven’t had a chance to check out the design team’s inspiration pieces, make sure you pop over to do that!  And then, it’s your turn to get crafty!  We always love to see what you come up with.

Now, given that I have some Halloween crafts under my belt, I think that warrants a little sneak into the stash of Halloween candy, right?
