The theme of this challenge is

Here is the first set of sample cards.
These were taken from paper creators kit Floral Butterfly
This is how the kit look when you just print out the design and make it up.
A very striking easel card

 But you know how I like to play about with the kits.
I came up with this rocker card, I used the above kit and also the
 Scalloped edge rocker template
added lots of glitter to the flowers

Here you see my second set of samples.
These were made using the Blossom Scalloped edge pocket kit
Really pretty to work with
 This will be how the finished card will look and you have the choice of sentiments

 Again I have had a play with the images in the kit, with a little resizing on the Pc.
I have changed it into a pop out stepper card.

Two More Altered Frames

 This is the first of two frames I have altered for my Daughter and Niece .
This picture was taken at my sons 21st Birthday party.
Its of my Mother-in-law with my Daughter Aleysha (dark hair) and my niece Emily( longer hair)
The layout was done in Craft Artist from a selection of kits that I am addicted to buying.
I love how the vines look as if they are wrapped around the picture frame.

A closer look at the flowers in these photos.
These are all blues and pinks.
They were made from an  SVG cut file from Penny Duncan (See links in my side bar for Penny`s blog)
The leaves are all punched,.
flowers have been glimmer misted and glittered

This is the second frame. 
Both frames were 10x8 inches in size.
Didn't make one for Mother- in- law as she does not like things on display, and this would be way to fussy for her.
I did print a small 6x4 and popped it into a small silver frame for her.
to nice a photo of her with her granddaughters not to have on display

Just changed the colours of the ribbon and flowers.
These are all purple and cream tones

Some more close ups of flowers.
again made using one of Penny`s cut files

Here is a closer view the layout that I framed.
All done with Serif Craft Artist.
I just love this software and use it daily

Camper Van

Just loved this little Camper Van when I saw it, this is the female version and it comes in a male version as well.
Nice clear images a dream to colour in
You can get them from Beth HERE

They were Coloured using Promarkers.
I then wanted to give both them a real glossy look, so I used Crafter Companions Spray and shine each was given two coats.
The second coat on the surf boards was added a bit more roughly with thicker patches.
This was to give the effect that surf boards have when the wax has been applied to them.
Cant see it to good in the photo but looks and feel great close up.
look out for the male version he is all printed out and waiting to be coloured in
Entered into the following challenges

A few shots of my spotty grandson Keaton over the weekend.
We thought he was coming out in chicken pox but only a few spots appered over his chin and bottom, none on his arms and trunk of his body.
He had been away with use a few days before and spents a few days swimming in the pool.
So it might be that the chlorine in the water has irritated  his skin a bit.
Its all cleared up now
 This top photo is of the little darling posing for me, after he saw me with the camera, he was giving me a big cheesy smile
All the bottom ones are photos I snapped without him noticing I had the camera.
He was watching scooby do at the time

I do so love the snaps that I get of him unnoticed.
I wonder what he is thinking

Paper Creator Challenge 2

It our second challenge over at paper creator crafts
So pop over and join in al the fun.
Debbie has a fab prize for the winner.
The theme for challenge 2 is
Special Occasions
I have two DT card kits to show you this week
 A few of the things that you could make from the
You just need to use your imagination, print the kit out a few more times and take the elements you need to make your own designs

 This is how the card kit will look if you just print cut and follow the instruction sheet.
I have added a few extra embellishments  
 A few close ups of the finished car, as you can see I have added a few gems, buttons, glitter and a sentiment 
Baby makes three 
This is from Create with TLC
 The next items I made was this little card and box set
 I just cut out the centre panels of the card ,folded into shape added some glitter and a little bow
I then measured the size and made a little box to pop the card into using a box maker. 
Printed some extra sheets to make the top of the box.
punched out the sentiment then added a blue bow and a punched heart

This is such a simple card to make and it looks just stunning made up.
 As with the first kit, I printed and made up the kit as the instructions tell you 
 How cute is this card (everyone who has seen it has fallen in love with these teddies)
and very simple to do a must have kit.
in the photo below you can see all the layers.
 But to keep to our theme Special Occasions for our 2nd Challenge
I took the same kit
this time I took it into my graphic program ( I use Serif Craft Artist)
made the teddies a little smaller.
Cut  out the tartan background of the layer sheets
then added all these elements to my base double twisted easel card
you can see a tutorial  I did on how to make the easel base card HERE
 I them printed out a sentiment on your engagement onto another layer sheet
and punched it out with a scallop punch and used a Martha Stewart punch for the hearts 

So make your kits up but always think is there something else that I could do with my kit.
that way you get double the value .
All kits from Paper Creator

Pop over to

I would love to see what you come up with.
