Promarker week 14 purple and Just Magnolia week 19

August 26, 2009

I made loads of cards yesterday and 3 of them qualify for the Promarker challenge. I’m not sure if you can submit more than one entry, but i’ll give it a go.
The first card is Tilda sitting. I have used lilac , lavender, 2 shades of grey, cornflower and blush. The cicles are embossed with a cuttlebug folder. The papers are DCWV This is being entered into the Just Magnolia challenge.

The second card is princess Anya from the Greetings Farm. She is matted onto a scalloped square cut from Nestables. Again I have used lilac and lavender with blossom pink for the underskirt. Two shades of grey are used for her hair.

The third card is a stamped image I purchased from a friend. I can’t remember the make of stamp. The backing paper is Basic Grey. I think the thankyou stamp is Penny Black.
Please let me know what you think of them

July 15, 2009

Hi everyone
Had a busy weekend in Stoke so didn’t get the chance to post anything.
Only 2 days left at school before we break up. Yipeeeeee!!!!!
I made some of those little handbags for some of the girls at school who I have been dieting with. some of them have done really well. Me hmmmmm, not so good. Never mind. I put 4 little chocolates in the bags as a treat for them . I will post the pictures in a bit.
I also made another exploding box for a girl at school who’s friend is getting married. The colour scheme was chocolate and cream. I think it turned out okay. Let me know what you think.
This is my card for the Passion for Promarkers week 8 challenge.
The image is from Sugar Nellie and I have coloured it with this week’s colours;
I also used;
hair: apricot,spice,terracotta
shoes: apricot,spice,terracotta
dog: cool grey 1, warm grey 3
outline: cool grey 1
I then chalked around the image. The papers are from Basic Grey. The flower is a Sizzix die with a pearlised brad in the middle ( the twist of jewels and gems). The card is finished off with red ric-rac.
Please let me know what you think of it

Just Magnolia week 12 so charming

July 9, 2009

Hi everyone.
It’s been ages since I left a post. We went to the Newbury Artstamps show on saturday and it went very well. We were in front of the front door so we were the first stand people saw as they came in. Fortunately we didn’t put them of!!!!. We sold out of Promarkers on the first day and we sold several packs of Copics too. We were using the Wild Rose Studio stamps See HOTSHOTCRAFTS in my blog roll.
Here is my entry for Just Magnolia week 12 – so charming.
The papers are Pocket full of Posies – DCWV, Flowers are from Poppicrafts, but she’s not going to sell them anymore. I’ve used my Nesties and of course Promakers to colour Tilda in.
I’m off now to make another exploding box for a friend to give as a wedding card. The colour scheme is chocolate and cream. I will post pictures when I have finished it.
Please leave comments as I love to hear from you
Love Sarah XXX

Just Magnolia challenge week 11 Bev’s sketch

June 29, 2009

Hi everyone
Hope you all had a good weekend. Today has been gloriously hot but as I start to type my blog the rain has started and so has the thunder.
Well I’m still shocked about the news about Michael Jackson. What will happen to his children? And Farrah Fawcett Majors too. I remember watching Charlies Angels in the 70’s. Everyone wanted her hairstyle. It didn’t look right unless you were blonde. Sad times.
Well Daniel has done 3 days of his new job. All is going well.
Are any of you going to the Newbury Craft show on Saturday 4th July? If you are come and say Hello to me at The Hotshots stand where I will be demonstrating Promarkers used with the air system and Wild Rose Studio Stamps. Hotshots are sponsers for the Passion for Promarkers challenge
Well here is my entry for the Just Magnolia challenge week 11 Bev’s sketch. As it is nearly the end of term I used Best Teacher as my sentiment and Tilda as a schoolgirl standing in front of a desk.
Please leave a comment about it as I am feeling lonely!!!

June 25, 2009

Lovely weather again. Hope you are all having a lovely day
Daniel starts his job this afternoon so I am going to give him a good lunch and then drop him off at work. At work how weird does that sound. It only seems like yesterday he was my beautiful baby boy!!!!
Well back to all things crafty. Here is my entry for the Just Magnolia challenge.The theme is summer and I have used Tilda in a swimsuit. I followed the out of bounds Nestie tutorial by Rach (Papercrafts by Rach). It really is an effective way of combining stamps and nesties.
The papers I bought were on sale and are by Basic Grey. The flowers are Papermania and American Crafts.
Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
