Fabulous Friday - Owl ways love One another :-)

Helloo everyone.  How's it goin' ?

Have you had a fabulous week?

We are on our way back from Canada's  Wonderland theme park.  We took the girls down for a quick break, as Andy had taken a few days off work.  I'm not really one for theme parks, but I take a good book and chill out while they are all screaming their heads off on the roller coasters :-)

Today starts a new challenge over at Polkadoodles.  This fortnights theme is Add some Embossing. Now, that could be heat embossed or dry embossing, or however you want to emboss :-)

I decided to get out the Twiggy & Toots collection again, I just love these owls.

For my embossing element, I took the striped paper and ran it through my Cuttlebug.  I inked up a Darice Woodgrain embossing folder, using my brayer and then put that through, therefore accentuating the embossing.

I layered up the pre-coloured owlies off one of the Design sheets, which is also available as a single digi download sheet.

For the inside, using the same papers and a second embossed sheet, and a little stamped owl to finish off the message panel.

Love the depth you can get by layering up these images.  All the layers have inked edges and used CTMH Sorbet to do all the inking.

Every element is from this wonderful collection.  I love those ticket sentiments.

Now it's your turn to get creative and head over to the challenge blog.  Remember, you don't have to use Polkadoodles products to enter our challenges.  You can enter HERE.

Fabulous Friday - Four Seasons

Hello everyone!  Wow - Friday again and here in Canada - schools out for Summer :-)

It's time for week 2 of our Polkadoodles Frame It challenge - so lots of inspiration from my teamies and I.  So why not go check out what they have for you.  But... check out my inspiration first LOL!

I showed you this little sneak peek back on Sunday, and I really love how it came together.

I used 4 of the fabulous fairies from the wonderful Serenity collection. I will link to the individual digis with each season picture :-)

I decided to make a 4 Seasons canvas and Shannon has already claimed it for her room LOL!

For Spring, I used Serenity Fairy Kisses.  The scrabble pieces are from the wonderful Work & Play 9 - Love & Kisses collection.

For Summer, I have used Serenity Dancing.  The flowers are cut files from Polkadoodles - using my Silhouette Cameo.

For Autumn - I have used Serenity Earthstar.  The autumn leaves are also cut files from Polkadoodles.  I used the Ivy cut file and cut off the leaves.

For Winter - I have used Serenity Joyful.  The snow flakes are from the wonderful Work & Play 5 - Festive Hollybobs collection, which I traced and cut using my Silhouette Cameo.

They have all been coloured with Prisma colouring pencils and Gamsol, and adding a little sparkle with some Wink of Stella. The frame paper is from the Dollie Daydream Goes East collection.

Really enjoyed colouring up these fabulous digis.

So, what will you come up with - have your framed anything lately :-)  Time to go over and enter our challenge.  You have until Noon, GMT, Friday, 3 July to enter.

I hope you are all well and will catch up this weekend if not before.

Final of the Teachers Gifts and a new Grad :-)

Hi everyone, stopping in quickly today, to share these final teachers gifts.  Also thought I would share some photo's as Emily graduated today - off to High School in the fall.

Grab a coffee :-)

All dressed up.

The hair doo :-)

Sisters, Sisters, never had such devoted Sisters :-)

She made Honour Roll.

Admiring her award :-)

Now on to the teachers gifts :-)

For her Physical Education teacher Mr T :-)

I used papers from the Polkadoodles Work & Play 1 collection, the embellishments are from the Work & Play 11 collection.

For her Home Room Teacher Mr H :-)

I used papers and embellishments from the Polkadoodles Work & Play 3 collection.

And finally for her French teacher :-)

I used the wonderful  Fredericka collection.  I cut the Eiffel Towers out of papers off this collection.

Sentiment teacher tickets are from Work & Play 3.  The 2 Teach panels are frames of the Twiggy & Toots collection that I then added some wording.  Even managed the French version too :-)

I hope they all like their unique gifts.

That's it from me today.  Need to collect Emily from her celebrations.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.

Models and a Sneak Peek ;-)

Hi everyone - just popping in today to say hi :-)

Andy has been very busy with his models and I have a sneak peek of my DT post for Friday.

I hadn't realised that I had fallen behind with sharing Andy's model making.  Have some great ones to share with you today.

Star Wars AT-AT

Millennium Falcon

The little square it is sitting on is 1". just to give you a size reference.

Black Pearl - Pirates of the Caribbean

And finally my favourite, which he finished today.

Model T Ford 1908


Aren't they fab - sorry for so many pictures ;-)

And onto my little sneak peak.  You have seen two of the images that are making up this creation but there are two more.  I, however, am only showing a little of the finished creation.

That's it, that's all you get :-)

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.

Music Time.

Hello everyone.

I wanted to stop in again today to show you one of the teachers gifts completed.

I had to get this one done so that Emily could give it to her band teacher this afternoon.  We are off to the school Spirit Assembly shortly.

I picked up these little sketch books from Walmart and thought they would make perfect little gifts for the teachers.  They are only 16cm tall, but perfect for some book folding :-)

I used a music note book folding pattern from Crafty Hana - etsy shop .  I am so addicted to this and was so glad that I found it :-)

I used the fabulous Work and Play 8 - Feel the Music - to decorate the book.  Using the wonderful cut files (using my Silhouette Cameo) and papers off this collection.

The ticket sentiments and sentiment panel are also off this wonderful bundle.

I just love these cut files.  

Time to put it in a gift bag and head on up to the school.

I hope you are having a wonderful day.
