Graphic 45 Place In Time - January

Oh happy days, today it is Friday, which means another challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity.

This week, we have a bingo challenge. Using the grid, enter something that fits the challenge horizontally, vertically, or diagonally.

Here is my piece, using: blue, circle, flowers.

I am using Graphic 45 ~ Place in Time: January papers here. I intend to create a piece each month, for the entire year, with these papers, so they are sat on my desk ready and waiting for inspiration!! Errrm, please try and hold me to that!!

My snowman has of course been made with a Tim Holtz die.

I've also added papers from Bo Bunny ~ Snow Day collection.

I must have had this Magnolia Doo Hickey ~ Flag die forever and not used it, but have done so here, to create this banner. I added some Prima pearls.

Everyone, have a really fabulous weekend, enjoying the last miserable one of January. Then we just have to get through equally miserable February, before we arrive at March and the world starts to feel alive again :) and I might actually be able to start taking some decent photos. Ho hum.

Happy days!

the swimmers

Good morning! Here we are at Friday, at last! Today at Crafts 4 Eternity we have a moody blues colour challenge.

Here I have altered up a <u>Tattered Angels Travel Ledger Glimmer Glass album
. Trying saying that really quickly!

If anyone knows of these albums, the front cover is acetate and has a compass printed on it. Well, I cut out the inner circle and added papers to the outer circle.  

All papers used are by Magnolia.

Here is the inside of the front cover.

I have coloured up two images of Magnolia ~ Diving Tilda and put one on the outer cover and one on the inside front cover.

Here is the inside front cover.

Then finally, I decorated the back cover.

Thank you for looking.

Good morning and a happy Monday morning to you! First day back at work today and as I write this on Sunday evening, I am not. looking. forward. to. it.

Oh well, I take comfort in the fact that time goes by so quickly, that it will soon be the holidays again :)

Today we have our first new challenge of 2013 at Cupcake Craft Challenges, which is monochromatic blue (but you can use different colours for skin and hair).

Again, I've used the papers from The Girl's Paperie ~ Vintage Whimsy collection. I've put them away now, I promise!

Image: Saturated Canary ~ Isabella, coloured with copics.

The doily on which she is sitting was cut with an Xcut Doily die. Gorgeous!

ride through life with me

Hello and a good morning to you all. Firstly, let me wish you all a Happy New Year! Unfortunately, mine hasn't got off to a flying start as I have been sick for the last 7 days and I'm getting a bit bored of it now! No doubt it will cleared by the time I have to go back to work on Monday!

Well, today at Crafts 4 Eternity we have a challenge of new technique, product or style. I have gone for new cutting dies and a punch and no I didn't get them for Christmas, I had to buy them myself! So a special treat for me:)

Apologies for the awful photos, I have never known it be so dark and all day long too!!

The image is by Crafty Secrets and I've used Spellbinders ~ Romantic Rectangles cutting dies.

You can also see the Martha Stewart ~ Doily Lace which is now my favourite punch.

Papers: The Girls' Paperie ~ Vintage Whimsy. Loving these!
