Doilies in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are using Doilies. La-La Land Crafts have some wonderful doily dies and I have used one here in the background. I also used a Prima paper pad and fussy cut the overlays of the dress from a pattern with lace/doilies on. I paper pieced the underskirt, sash and headband after giving them the glitter treatment - glitter looks so nice on stage ;) The bottom sections of the dress overlay are raised up to give some movement to her dress.

Aurora Wings Challenge #13


This month our Aurora Wings Challenge is....ANYTHING GOES!

Recently one of the ladies in the Facebook group commissioned this fabulous microbiologist image called Cultured from Mitzi. This image immediately appealed to me having worked in micro labs for 20+ years :) I have also found a number of other crafty friends have the same science background which is always fun. I used some microscopy images as my background paper and overlaid her onto them before printing - this completed my nerdy science design and was perfect for an upcoming birthday for a fellow microbiologist.

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.

Use Something New in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are...... 

Using Something New

I had a hard time trying to figure out what I had in my craftroom that was new and unloved - although truth be told there is probably quite a LOT of things I have in there that I bought with the intention of using them - LOL. I ended up deciding to unpack the Zutter Bow-it-all V2 I got for Christmas. I have always been a boweasy girl but I do like the fact you can make layered bows with different sized loops with the Zutter. A quick check on Youtube to see how to use it and I had a 3 looped bow with graduating sized loops. LOVE IT! Unfortunately the sheer ribbon I used makes it a little hard to see in the photo - but it's lovely and full IRL.

A Bit of Fun with Simply Betty Stamps


I don't often get a chance to play with images and things outside of my DT and other commitments so it was really nice to do something different for a change. This is Goblin Queen by Simply Betty Stamps. She was a snap freebie from the SBS Facebook Page and if you requested her you were asked to create a card within a few days. Sadly Betty has had people join the group just for the freebies and then leave again so she's had to close the group after each freebie is released until it's only available instore. I wanted to make sure I could honour the commitment if I took this cutie,

We were asked to do her up in either a light or a dark version - needless to say I went light. I printed her onto some gorgeous digi paper from bearly Mine Designs - unfortunately they have gone out of business due to the new VAT rules in the UK :( . I printed the same paper out again to use as my background. I love using this technique as I get a gorgeous background for my image and matching papers on my card.

St.Patrick's Day or Good Luck in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we got the choice to do either a St.Patrick's Day card or a Good Luck card. I guess it's not too hard to figure out which way I went - LOL.

I designed and cut out the card base using my silhouette cameo, and added a couple of die cuts, Marci and flowers. The white words have been done in 2 layers - with the top layer glittered up for a bit of fun. The layers do line up properly - it just looks like they don't because of the angle I took the photo.

Three Types of Embellishments in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are using at least 3 different embellishments on our cards. For my card I've added die cuts, ribbon, pearls and rhinestones. Shock and horror - no flowers from me today - LOL. Little Marci's clothes were paper pieced - I think she's adorable in her gorgeous spotted onesie and cap :)

Club La-La Land - February 2015



Welcome to my showcase of the La-La Land Craft's February Club Kit. For more information on the fabulous Club you can find all the information HERE. Just note that Club products (stamps and dies) will not be available for purchase outside of the kits until 12 months after their release!!!

I have to say that this month's club is my new favourite! Being someone who LOVES to sew I was in raptures when I saw this gorgeous sewing fairy and the accompanying stamps and dies. After seeing my team-mate Sandie's AMAZING sewing machine project I felt inspired to create something a little different as well as a card - check out what I came up with......

 I have seen this gorgeous sewing basket before so tracked it down and am happy with the final result :)


Just a BUYER BEWARE note - I bought the svg file to cut this in my cameo - all went well until I got to my craftroom with all of the pieces to discover the 5 pages of shapes are not to scale and NONE of the pieces fit together as each page is scaled differently. I then printed off the pdf which IS to scale and used the measurements on this to re-size the imported files. You can just print the pdf onto your card and cut out but I don't like seeing the print lines. Link.....http://mytimemadeeasy.com/store/index.php...

It's Sketch Time in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are playing with this fun sketch. I love seeing all the different takes on the same sketch - it's an interesting study in how different we all are! I've gone for a fairly formal style of card and so Masquerade Marci was the perfect choice. I had originally intended not to add in any extra colour - but a brown dress just seemed a tad drab and I'm happy with the pop of colour I ended up with. I was a little disappointed with my pleats though - I'm thinking I need to get my eyes tested again as I struggled with my focus - even with my glasses on!!!! Ah well - she still turned out OK!

Aurora Wings Challenge - My Lucky Colours

 

This month over at Aurora Wings Challenges we are playing with ....


 Now I don't have a lucky colour as such but I do have a favourite one - green - in particular lime green. I used Mitzi's gorgeous Spirit of Diamonds with Roses image and added a burst of green. I love green and pink together so pink was the perfect choice to add in to soften the look.

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.
