Digi Delight!

Jeez, is it Saturday again already? This week seems to have flown by - not that I am complaining, don't get me wrong. I've a big project going on in the background and been a bit busier at work so maybe that's whiled away the days. Right, onto more fun, crafty matters people!

Be sure to hop over to the bee-crafty downloads blog here to see her fab new Halloween collection that she's been giving us sneak peeks of this week.

In addition, there's another fab challenge going down, sponsered this week by Cupcake Card Craft (click on the pic above to be taken to the website) , In my opinion, other than Pink Petticoat, this shop has the best selection of digi papers! Each design comes in loads of different colour shades so you're bound to find one to suit your project.

This is my DT project..........

Yes, I know its a wee bit early but I've made a 201o calender! It's a really simple, but effective design as you can either make a stand for it, add a magnet or even punch a hole at the top and hang from a picture hook if you wanted. I opted for the magnet on this occasion.

I simply printed off the 'candy spots' digi paper, stuck it to thick card and rounded the edges using an XCut tool. With a lot of help I have managed to digitally fill the image with the same paper using Photoshop.

Calender~Anita's (come in pack of 10)

Lace~HobbyCraft (although most haberdashery's will sell)


Letters~PM 3D Alphabet stickers - white

Tools~Nesties Scalloped and large circles sets, Fiskars 'threading water' border punch (fave of mine!!), 3D sticky foam pads, polychromo pencils blended with Sansador.

Well I hope you all have a great bank holiday weekend! I am seeing family on Sunday and then off to Diggaland in Kent with Adam and Tyler on Monday-think they'll enjoy it more than me though!

Ta ra,

  3. Hi Trixi

    WOW! I really love this idea and your calender is just cute cute cute! I love the lace and 3d butterflies! The best bit for me is the lettering around the image, really sweet.

    Thanks so much for using my papers in such a wonderful way!
