DT Time...Vintage Themed

Well it's that time of the month again where I get to play with Pattie's great digi stamps. This month the theme for my team is Vintage. I've been struggling with my mojo lately and so I decided to keep it simple. I decided to alter a gift bag and to alter a box that my friend cut from me using her die cutting machine. The digi stamps that I chose to use are "Dogwood Branch", "Morning Glory" and "Corset". I'm already planning on how I might use the corset digi again.

To take part in this challenge just click HERE and you'll see the details. You could always pop on over to her Etsy shop and treat yourself to some digis too.

Here's my project.

Artist Trading Cards - Halloween Themed

I am a new member over  on a group called "The Craft Hole", it's a Facebook group and really well organised. I joined my first swap which was Halloween themed ATCs. Here's what I made.

The first two have been heat embossed and the third, as you can see, uses lots of glitter. The images and backing papers come from G45 Steampunk Spells that I have left over from last year.

Thanks for stopping by.

I was browsing Pinterest the other day, looking for some inspiration when I came across this neat idea. It's a bookmark that wraps right around the book and held in place with a hair bobbin and button, the bobbin is nicely concealed behind the image so it's really tidy. Dawn Griffiths of Dawns Stamping Studio (she's a Stamping Up lady) has a video tutorial that I followed. I've admired her work for some time now and so decided to try this out. I'm kinda hooked now. Here's two that I made.


The first one is made using my Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells paper pad and the second one is made using the Graphic 45 Nutcracker Sweet paper pad. I LOVE Graphic 45 papers and think I need to treat myself to some more...really soon!!
