Hi There crafters!

A few super cute images are going live in the DigiStamps 4 Joy shop today, and I have created a little scene to showcase them for you!

I simply couldn't decide which of these adorable little outfits I wanted to work with, so I decided to use all of them!  You'll find all of them in the New Products section in the shop.

I've also used Misteri - Where's Summer?  She's dreaming of her trip and planning what needs to be shoved into that suitcase!

Everything has been coloured with markers.  The suitcase is a Jolee's sticker; the plane and clouds are Little B, and the kitty, who's made herself at home in the suitcase - as all respectable kitties would, is a Dress It Up button.

You'll find all these stamps and many more in the shop.  Just click the logo below:

To get a few more ideas, visit our blog, and don't forget that you still have a few days to enter our monthly challenge there!

And we'd love you to share your creations using Digistamps 4 Joy images with us, in our FaceBook Group! Lots of inspiration to see there too!

 Thanks so much for popping in!

Hi There Crafters!


Ruby Looking Pretty is one of 7 brand new images available from Polkadoodles right now!

I have coloured Ruby with markers.  My papers are from the Eden collection, and my sentiment from the Winnie Celebrations 2 collection.

I've used a few dies - for the heart balloons, the camera and the tag.  I've added a mini film strip, lace, a doily, an assortment of flowers and a few random pearls dotted around.

Ruby has been making quite an appearance on our FaceBook pages, so be sure to pop over and join us there to get lots of ideas.

You can find the whole Ruby range here

Hello and welcome!

We have a brand new challenge starting at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges today, and we have 2 great prizes up for grabs:

is giving away a $15 gift certificate to their store, and 

is giving away 4 digi images of the winner's choice.

This week I have a Fred She Said image to show you.  I absolutely love pansies, so it was a real treat to use this image.  It is called Tea Cup Pansies, and I have coloured it with markers.  I started by printing out the image 3 times, so that I could layer it up with puffy pads, to give the image even more depth. 

 I have created a pocket on my base card, embossing the top and bottom pieces with Sizzix embossing folders, and then giving the bottom piece a curvy border with a Spellbinders cut & emboss border die.  The tag was also cut using a Spellbinders die.

The sentiment is a Simone Clay stamp, and the butterfly is Mont Marte.

You can pop back to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration this week, or visit one of our great sponsors, by clicking on their logos above.

Good luck!
