A Little Wedding Cheer

I’ve used my WEDDING BUBBLY digital image to create this sparky gold wedding card for my niece.  She had a non traditional wedding in early September and it was a blast! I danced my feet off; SO MUCH FUN!!   This image is in my FREEBIE section here on my blog for a little while longer, so grab it while you can!   It’s a fun  image that is pre-colored in gold and would work wonderfully for New Year’s cards, anniversaries or any romantic celebration!  And remember, I love to see what you create, so please do shout it out and let me oooh and ahhh over your creations!! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by; you know I  love it when you do 😉  Deena

How is everyone today?  It is Cccooold here in Montreal!!  What do you like to do when you don’t feel like going outside? Aside from browsing your favourite blogs and crafting, of course!  I like to read!! Well, I like to read when I can make the time which was very difficult for me to find this past year.  This year I am making time! It is one of my New Year’s resolutions to READ MORE!  There are so many books I want to read and reread for that matter!  Currently I am re-reading Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. I was 16 when I first read it, so I wanted to see what I would think of it now that I’ve lived a little!    What are you reading? Today I wanted to share these BOOK PLATES that I made.  Do you share your books?  If you do, you might like to make sure you get them back and a great way to do that is to place a book plate in the front or …

Feathered Friend

I was inspired by the colors from the Songbird Collection in coloring my Feathered Friend from Can You Digi It? .   This image was part of my August release if you missed it. Songbird is one of my all time favourites from Prima Marketing!  The colors, patterns and sweet images just make me sigh with pleasure when I look at them!   I’ve combined a few panels and added a strip of washi tape too.  All the paper edges and image is sponge distressed with ‘old paper’ distress ink. The tag is made by punching out some light weight scrap cardboard and covering it with a leftover bit of Songbird paper.  I used a Stampin’ Up! paper punch.  I also punched a tiny heart and covered it with Songbird dp and glued it to the corner.  I tied a bow with ribbon seam binding and clipped the mini clothes peg to it, and voila! … a sweet shabby tag embellishment that helped use up some scraps too!

Crafty Creations is Recycling!

Peggy thought  we could use any recycled item we have hanging around our crafting tables or in our craft rooms.  Easy and good for the environnement right!  Right Peggy!!    I’m happy to say that I’m sponsoring this week’s Crafty Creations Challenge with images from A Creative Need!  I am blown away by the creativity of the team with their recycled projects!! They are aaaaahhhsome!!  Be sure to stop by the challenge blog to see what they all came up with and to play the challenge of course!  Here’s what I did using my brand spanking new image available as of today!  “Dear Santa”  I colored him with prismacolor pencils aiming for a well lived in, classic look.  The edges of the image are sponged with pumice stone ink and backed with a piece of recycled kraft paper from an old card.  Then I matted that with Chestnut glitter AC card stock that my son had bought for me last Christmas.  I recycled some broken brads by using crystal effects to adhere them to the …
