Using Washi Tape in La-La Land

Today in La-La Land the DT are playing with Washi Tape and/or Twine. I used a bold black striped Washi tape on my card - I really love how it pops and ties the striped banner in with the background. How could I resist playing with a New Molli, I hadn't coloured this one up yet so it was a no-brainer to use her. And of course she HAD to have chocolate cake - my fave!

Being a lover of coffee and knowing how it helps start my day I thought how PERFECT this cutie was for me - although my dog Holly may be offended that it's a cat with Molli and not a dog LOL.

New Release Showcase from Aurora Wings


When Mitzi asked if any of the DT wanted to join in with the release showcase for this beauty how could I resist. I love owls - in fact we have a pair of tawny frog mouth owls that live in the area and I can often see them in the tree in my backyard.

This beautiful image is called "Owl Spirit". You can find Aurora Wings images at either the Web shop or on Etsy.  I started colouring her in soft muted tones but somehow my love of lime green took over and the card I used seems to bring her eyes out as a feature. She really does have the most beautiful face!

Don't forget to pop over to the Showcase Blog HERE to check out the other amazing creations the girls have come up with using this beautiful image.

Aurora Wings Challenge #16


This month over at Aurora Wings Challenges we have one of my favourite themes. It's time for.....


Recently I saw a quote on Facebook similar to the sentiment I typed out for my card. This sentiment really made sense to me as I grew up blowing "wishes" whenever I saw the dandelions seeding. It was one of the many childhood joys I shared with my own children. So how perfect was the sentiment with Dandelion Sprite! You can't tell from this picture but each seed head is also glittered to add the the magic.

 Don't forget to check out the rest of the AMAZING DT inspiration on our BLOGWe also have a very active Facebook Fan Group with additional contests, challenges and inspiration.  We hope to see you there.

Tick Tock use a Clock in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are using clocks on our projects. I thought this little guy would be perfect and I used the one I coloured up in my monochromatic colouring tutorial. You can check out my full step-by-step colouring tutorial HERE. The digi designer paper already had clocks on and I was rapt when my steampunk clock die fit in perfectly to enhance them.

More Than One Fold in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are playing with more than one fold. I decided to create a little piece of Ancient Egypt with a triangular card. Now I know pyramids should have 4 sides not 3 but I hope you'll allow me a little bit of artistic licence ;)


As you can see the card can fold flat for posting and you can add a message to the inside as well. For my card I've started with 3 x 5"squares, scored and folded diagonally and then stuck together leaving one side open.


I've attached a brad on the open side for the flap to slide under so the card holds together and stands up. A little but of fun and something different.

Use a Number in La-La Land


A very CAS card from me today - I'm letting the colours and lines do the work on my card. With a son about to turn 17 I also know boys don't like too much fuss. The fabulous number dies in this month's club were used for the feature - I love the groovy little detail on some of the numbers.
