Too Cute to Spook–Papermill Direct Offer

lisa 1

New offer day at Papermill Direct and the offer this week is for a box of Bright Orange and Black card. Perfect for Halloween! Click here for more info and prices.

I adore Meljen’s Designs’ cute digi stamps and I this one is also great for Halloween makes – especially if you’re like me and don’t always feel like going into great detail with your colouring. I coloured him with Prismacolor pencils and he was printed on to Papermill super smooth white card.

The grass is cut from the new apple green card in the shop.


There is a ton of dimension on this card. The moon, with and tree are all flat to the card front and then the spooky house, grass and ghostie-boy are all layered on 3D foam pads.

Little Autumn Elf


sept anything goes 2

I can’t believe it’s September already! This is my design team project for the Anything Goes Challenge over at Crafting by Designs.


I haven’t used this digital stamp by the now closed Birdie Brown since last Autumn so I thought it was time to give it a bit of colour again :) I coloured him entirely with Prismacolor Pencils which I blend with baby oil.

I used all Papermill Direct card on this card. Mocha Brown for the card base, White Linen for the digital papers and the leaves/vines and super smooth white for the digital stamp and apple barrel

Sometimes you come across something so pretty that it stops you in your tracks.


I normally get my cutting files from SVGCuts and the Silhouette Store but I ventured onto Etsy to see what SVG offerings they had on offer. This file by SVG Hut fell into my cart without hesitation.

Isn;t it gorgeous?


I made mine completely from Papermill Direct white hammered card and cut each layer (there are 5 altogether) on my Cameo – although this project isn’t a set size so it can be made on the Portrait too.


It has also firmly put me in Christmas mode so I’ve decided that who cares if it’s only August still (albeit in the final throes) I’m starting my Christmas makes from now on :)
