Why don't you pop over to the Polkadoodles Challenge this week where "anything goes" for this for you! Until next time "carry on crafting folks" lots of love Nelly x

Off the page Wedding!


Nelly - This week I have used Wedding Car Digi Image. Papers and sentiment using Love and Cherish CD Coloured with Marker pens.

I created the card by placing the coloured image on the front facing centre fold and drew and cut  around the right side of the coloured image folded this back and trimmed it away from the card.  I covered the front with a design paper from the CD, Next opening the card  fully (front facing) i adhered the coloured image into place. When opened it sits off the page and   you can still see the whole image ( fig2) Decorate as desired.

Heart themed notepad Bookmark


Happy Friday all! this weeks theme was " Hearts" and thought i would do something different this time: using all the papers from the  Distress ink paper bundle printed and folded into  quarters, using a  heart shaped die ( or cut by hand)  carefully place approx 1/2 inch  before the folded point , print and cut cut several pages, when opened it looks like a flower!! Cut the front and back heart from a cereal packet and covered this also using the papers, glued onto a strip of hessian and carefully adhering the folded  hearts shaped pages  you have a notepad on the go in your favourite diary/notebook : the sentiment is using my " go to" sensational everyday stamps which is a " must have set"  flowers are used using punches from my stash and the left over scraps, go on give this a go its quite simple and useful project! until next time Happy Crafting all :-)
