This week’s offer at at Papermill Direct is for their bright and beautiful Daffodil Yellow card. It’s such a lovely colour that even though I’m full of cold and didn’t think I would be well enough to make anything, I couldn’t not make anything with it so I whipped up this card.
It’s a gatefold card from the Poplar Tulips set from SVGCuts.
You can get 20 sheets of this wonderful coloured card for only £2.00! Bargain!
The stamp set is from a Me to You set from Trimcraft and I’ve used random embellishments from my stash.
I actually get to combine two of my favourite craft companies that I happen to design for in the post because the competition which was announced in the papermill direct newsletter is to win one of two gift vouchers to the Jellypark Store! Hop on over to this post on the Papermill Blog for more details on how to enter!
New challenge day at Crafting By Designs and it’s the month long Anything Goes challenge! We have three fabulous sponsors and a whole host of talented guest designers joining us today. Head over to the challenge blog to get involved and find out more!
Since my mojo is still broken, I didn’t quite feel up to colouring a digi so I made a quick and easy Lori Whitlock project with my Silhouette.
I love the lovely deep red papermill direct card with the pretty floral patterned paper by Simple Stories on this card. I also decided to crack into my bing stash and bling up the dial of the telephone and added a bow made from May Art ribbon.
I have the memory of a goldfish. If someone asks me to do something or remember something and I don’t write it down then forget about it being done because I will have.
It’s like I have baby brain without the baby.
So I keep everything written down in a format that will help me in my filofaxes. I have two. One which I take everywhere and use for non crafty things like to do lists, shopping lists, expenses tracker, birthday, appointments etc. The other is purely for craftiness so that I can keep track of deadlines for design teams and ideas for posts etc.
For my personal needs this Pocket Apex filofax in pink is my best friend.
I have a teal blue and pink pen that I use purely for writing in this – I like things to match! I made my own dividers from the Here and Now collection by Echo Park because the punchy, bright and bold colours worked perfectly with it. I still keep the reminder to make pretty things every day because I like to decorate the pages.
My crafty filofax is the Purple Personal Domino which was a bargain £6.52 on Amazon! I also made some dividers for this organiser with some beautiful digital papers from Lilly Bimble over at MyGrafico.com. My Silhouette machine has been working over time. I’ve been making print and cut stickers to prettify they days so that I’m constantly inspired when I look through to see what I need to make next.
Expect to see more filofax related posts on my blog over the next coming weeks and months. If you share this obsession, leave me a link to the place you share it in the comments.
Yesterday saw the start of the new challenge over at the Jellypark challenge blog and the theme this challenge is Things with Wings. There are lots of adorable winged things in the Jellypark store and two more which you can find in the new release section.
I’ve used one of my favourites in this lovely Spring scene shadow box – the butterfly girl stamp
I coloured the digi with Promarkers, Derwent Coloursoft pencils and Wink of Stella pens.The pretty sky was inked up with distress inks and all of the cardstock used (linen white, super smooth white, green, brown and pink) are from Papermill Direct.
I hope you join in the challenge
It’s a nice sunny, if a little chilly day here in Leicestershire which makes the new challenge theme over at Crafting by Designs especially perfect – colours of Spring!
I have been wanting to use this bunny card from Pebbles in my Pocket for the longest time and now I’ve finally got the chance!
Totally, totally cute! I will definitely be using this a lot over Easter!
I used the Echo Park Hippity Hop collection available on Jessica Sprague. I printed the papers and the elements onto Papermill Direct white linen cardstock.
