D is for Drunk!!!

June 23rd 2017

A really fun themed challenge at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers blog "D is for Drunk" LOL couldn't resist using some of Janet's "Vera Lane Studio" digis to create this journal page for the challenge! I've used digis from the "Petite Syrah" set.

Page background is a patterned napkin which was perfect with the wine bottle and glass. I coloured the Vera Lane Studio digis with pastel pencils and fussy cut then added to the page with the computer generated wording "stay hydrated drink more wine" - true?????

Sin City Stamps: Make a Wish...

June 22nd 2017

My new post for Sin City Stamps is up at the Sin City Stamps Blog today - "Make a Wish" Journal Page! I love how this page turned out - lots of fun with paint and stencils and of course the rubber stamps from Sin City!! If you pop over to the blog you can see the step by step instructions for making this page! And don't forget to join us at the Sin City Fans Group at Facebook!

Miss Rach Meerkat

June 21st 2017

A fun altered index card for today's post!! I've used one of the cute and quirky characters by "Miss Rach" - you can find these fun digis at her Etsy Store "ByMissRach"!!!

Index card was a "mop up" card from my gelli plate plus other excess paints I have used - I think mop up cards always look great and are perfect backgrounds! Digi Meerkat coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut. Wording is from a stamp set by Dylusions - just love this quote - perfect for a Meerkat!!!!

Happy Thoughts & Butterflies...

June 17th 2017

A fun "Summertime" themed ATC for my Vera Lane Studio DT post this week and also my ATC for this month's trade at the Vera Lane Studio Digi Stamps Facebook Group! Digi gal is from the "Curly Girl" set available at the Vera Lane Studio Etsy Store. Sentiment is also from Vera Lane! I cut the ATC back from a paint chip sample and added washi tape, mesh, digi gal, sentiment and collage butterflies.

Sprakle and Glitter Rick St Dennis Blog New Challenge...

June 15th 2017

This month's challenge has just started at the newly revived Sparkle and Glitter Challenge Blog - for all fans of Rick St Dennis' Images!!!! Remember all of Rick's digis are now at his Zibbet Store!!

For this new challenge we want you to add some "metal" to your creation! I've used several types of metal for my journal page - firstly metallic ink sprays on the background plus some metallic embossing powder and of course have added the metal "courage" charm with chain around the sword!

We would love to see your creations for this challenge - lots of amazing images to choose from and great ways to add that metal element!! I used "Monument Skulls" digi for this creation.

Kat Paws....

June 14th 2017
A journal page using a new digi by Sandra Caldwell #1606 Fairy Kat - made for the current Facebook Group Challenge!

Page background is printed napkin. Digi Kat coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut. Wording is computer generated. Love the colours of this page! You still have time to grab one of the specially discounted digis and create and join at the Facebook Group Challenge!

Travelling Gal...

June 13th 2017

A new digi set was released at the Vera Lane Studio Etsy Store last week: "The Traveler" - a super cute set to create with! I couldn't resist colouring her up twice so I used her in 2 of my journals!

I love old things so couldn't resist "staging" my journal in this little ols suitcase with old binoculars - love the vintage feel! Background collage images on this page are by Gecko Galz. I added crackle and distress ink to make the background look old. The pile of books are also digis available at the Vera Lane Studio Store!

My second page is more layered style using some travel/tropical island papers and elements - was fun to play with!

My Favourite Things...

June 9th 2017

Pop over to the Sin City Stamps Blog to see how I created these fun & whimsical altered index cards using Sin City Stamps and Collage images by Ceremony!


Ahoy There Sailor!

June 7th 2017

A double page spread in my small journal (each page is an ATC size ie. 3.5 x 2.5 inches) - a cute little size to create with! All patterned papers and the Tattoo Gals collage images are by Gecko Galz - these gals are amongst my favourite Gecko Galz collage Sheets!

A Little Irish Luck!

June 2nd 2017

Today I am sharing something a little different for my Vera Lane Studio DT Creation!! No quirky cute digi image today - instead I decided to use just a sentiment - all Vera Lane Studio sets come with great sentiments so I have made the sentiment the focus of this journal page!

Page background is old book pages and patterned napkins with the printed sentiment in the middle of the page. I added some white paint and paper leaves and flowers to finish it all off! Something different and just goes to show how really versatile Janet's digis are to create with!!!

Black & White + a POP of Colour!

June 1st 2017

A fun ATC themed trade at the Vera Lane Studio Facebook Group last month - theme as per the title of this blog! Make sure you visit the Etsy Store to grab some quirky cute images to create with and share with us at the FB Group!!!


May 21st 2017

Sharing my altered index cards using the NEW Windows set of digis available from Vera Lane Studio at Etsy!!

I've "teamed" the window frames up with carious other "characters" by Vera Lane Studio - that's the beauty of png files you can overlay everything and have so much fun creating scenes!!!

Who can resist adding a cat or two to a window scene???

And of course a cute little doll waiting for her "owner" to come home from school and play with her...

I've used all sorts of bits & pieces on this altered index card - chocolate foil wrappers, scraps of lace and fibres and lots of fancy stitches done with my sewing machine!

And finally who can resist doing a crazy Halloween themed creation at any time of the year LOL!!!

Loved colouring and creating this one! Too much fun to play around with a creepy cute image and fun embellishments and wording!

Make sure you pop over to the store and nab yourself some images to play around and create with! And remember our Fans Facebook Group where we all love to share our creations!

Do What You Love To Do!

May 16th 2017

Our theme for this month at the Vera Lane Studio Fans Group is Black, White + a POP of colour! I've altered this index card with paint, washi tape and muslin cloth. Just love this gorgeous digi from the Vera Lane Studio Whimsical Clown Set: "Hope and Honey" - gorgeous images!! I printed Hop on watercolour paper and coloured her with a watercolour pen and paints. My splash of colour is of course purple!

Great news - the Rick St Dennis Challenge Blog "Sparkle and Glitter" is starting up again and to "kick it off' we are having a Blog Hop!! Our Blog Hop theme is for the EDT to use their most fav Rick St Dennis digi and create!! LOL How could I resist Euro Girl "SHARON" - I've had her for a very long time - just had to nab her for her namesake - so she was my chosen fav digi for this hop!!!

I've also used my fav colours for the background and colouring of image - PINKS of course! Excess paints from other projects were used to cover the background of the page and then I added texture paste through a stencil and ink sprays etc. Used the edge of an old credit card to make the black lined border. Image which was coloured with pastel pencils was fussy cut and added to the page with some tiny doileys and muslin cloth plus the letters to spell my name to finish it off!!
