Easter Tag

Good Morning ,
We've had a lot of rain over the past week. So plenty of time to craft.
Today I thought I'd share with you some tags I made for a swap. The theme was Easter, pastel colours and we had to incorporate a egg. Here are mine. One's for my partner and one's for the host. They will also have some extra goodies in with the tags too.

I like this Rabbit. He has a bit of a fed up look, but I think it's just because he's been busy delivering eggs.

Here is a close up. I've tried to introduce the light and shade in the colouring.

Here are the copics I used. I've been re organising my pens and they have a new home, but I'll share that another day with my copic book. I made one, but like everything I do I change my mind and come up with a different idea to do.

Thanks Sheila for having me today at She's a sassy lady.

I've got lots of cards to make this weekend and a playday with some crafting buddies that I'm getting more excited about the closer it gets.

Good morning,
Today I'm taking part in a bloghop organised by The Bugbytes. If you've come straight here please start the hop here. The theme is crafty or green. Of course I had to choose crafty. Perfect time to use some of my digi's. We were given the choice of a scrapbook lyout or a card layout. I chose the card layout.

Here is the fab sketch by Pam. I've made two cards.

Here's the first card. As I love my copics I thought Copica by Saturated Canary was appropriate.
As purple is my favourite colour I chose purple papers and pens.

Here is a close up of Copica. I just love her.
This time I had to use Smash Bob, gain by Saturated Canary. Smshing booking is my new favourite past time. I will be uploading some pages at future date.
Here she is close up. I just love the smashbook element and the glint in her eyes.
On Sunday at 8pm I will draw a name from any comments I receive for the bloghop to win a little surprise from me. It has some stamps in it and some other goodies.
Well I hope you enjoyed my creations. Your next stop is Chris.
Enjoy the rest of the hop. Don't forget to leave a comment for the chnce to win a little surprise.

Tag book

Good Morning all,
Sorry I'm a little late posting but Blogger was playing up with my photos. Today I thought I would share with you a tag/swap book I've made. The tutorial for this mini album can be brought from Following the Papertrail. On the Docrafts site I'm in a tag swap. This is going to happen each month of this year. This album is to store these tags and any other swaps that I receive. Above is the front cover of my album. In this album all the pages are made from DCWV La Creme stack.

This rose was made from Tim Holtz tattered pinecone die. You use two of the pinecones to make this rose.
This flower was made from the mini tattered florals.

Here is the first page of the lbum. There's three styles of pages throughout this album. There's a pocket on the front and the pages form a pocket at the top.

This is the page open. Two of these makes one page. I thought I'd share with you the tags I've received so far.
This tag is January's. The theme was 1950's women. This was made by Svetlana.

February's tag was all about Love. This was made by Fiona.

March tag has a Mother's day feel to it. In the U.K we celebrate Mothering Sunday in March. This was made by my very good friend Kay.

Here is the other side of the first page. You can see out it mirrors itself to form a pocket at the top.

Here it is closed.

Page two has a pocket at the top agin but opens differently. Again you make two of these and stick them back to back.

Here it is opened. Plenty of space for journalling and to add more pockets.

Here's page three open.

Here's page three closed.

I have also got band that I brought for a £1 to work as a closer for the album. It can be removed easily and is quite stretchy. I need to make another one of these but with a few less pages and with a christmas theme for the December tag swap which will be lots of christmas style tags.
Thanks to Pam for having me today at The Bugbytes. Come back tomorrow as I'm taking part in a blog hop. The theme is all about me or Green. There will be a little bit of candy too. It starts at The Bugbytes tomorrow.
Enjoy the sunshine.

Good Morning all,
Hope your weather is better than mine. Very dark and dull just waiting for the rain to come. Well hopefully this card will brighten your day. It has mine. Over at Just Inspirational Challenges we have a new challenge starting today. We have some Easter pictures as inspiration. Joanna Sheen is our sponsor today, so why not come and join in the challenge.

This stamp is by Sugar Nellie. She is a Pip. There are a few Pip's that are Digi stamps and some that are made in rubber. This is a digi.
Here she is close up.
Here are all the copics I used today.
I've nearly finished my mini so hopefully I'll be able to post it over the weekend.
Enjoy the bank holidays. Don't eat too much chocolate.

Afternoon all,
It's the start of the Easter holidays in the U.K. Time to do some crafting.
This weeks challenge at The Crazy Challenge is Spring. Today we have a new sponsor Redonkulos Designs. Spring to be is when all the daffodiles start appearing. I choose the yellow and green copics for this image. The papers are from First edition.
Here's a close up of the image. I think it's fab. You could do all sorts of cards with this image.
Here are the copics I used.
Well I need to finish my tag album and hopefully have that posted on here some time this week.
Enjoy the sunshine.
