I know It's early but.......

I need to get ahead with my Christmas Cards! Every year i say 'July?! Thats way too early to be making Christmas Cards!' But after the last couple of years to leaving it to the last minute i will be good this year and have them ready for a change!

I've used 'Gifts Galore' Digi Stamp which is available here or for your rubber lovers out there it's available here it can be used for any occassion really just not for Christmas as i've used it here but it does make a fab Christmas card!

I've used Echo Park 'All I Want for Christmas' Digi Papers together with Kraft Cardstock and the Sentiment is just typed up through GIMP and printed off with my Digi and my Ribbon and Buttons are from my stash and of course not forgetting my Promarkers to ink in! I'd used Blush, Duck Egg, Ice Grey 1, Pear Green, Poppy, Sandstone and Spice.


Don't forget our Challenge is still ongoing! So show us your Christmas Creations and also......

We have 20% off all Christmas Digi Stamps to get you in the mood

Cupcake Craftroom - July Challenge

Hey Everyone! Its the 1st of July already and its time for a new challenge at Cupcake Craftroom!

The mission if you chose to accept it is to use Polka Dots!! Yay! My Fav thing at the mo if you couldn't tell with my recent blog posts!  All you have to do is to have some form of polka dots on your creation it could be your DP's, Ribbon, Embellies etc its up to you!

There will be one winner personally chosen as usual for this month's challenge who will receive the 'Fresh Polkas' brand new paper collection

Now onto my creation for this month's challenge, I've gone for a criss cross card which i've never made before but i think its turned out quite well, you can either put a note in like i've done or tweek the sizes to make it smaller for a gift card holder i think it looks rather cool unfornatley it dosen't stand like a normal card but hey it looks pretty esp with Olive the Otter from PMS she is sooo sweet!
