I am back with a challenge at Penny’s today

Wow, I have been gone so long!  I have missed crafting but hopefully things have now slowed a bit to allow me some free time again – yay!

I am jumping right in with a challenge at Penny’s Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog.

Challenge 96: Dies and Punches
03 October – 09 October 2012

This week our challenge is to use die-cuts and punches – a favourite of mine since I got my BIG SHOT.  (now if only I could afford more dies!)

Since Halloween is so near, I wanted to create a Halloween type card (my first ever!) but I have been gone so long that it took quite a few tries to get to this card.  I used a super cute image from Fred, She Said.  That face just said it all!



I did not have any Halloween paper, so I made the little spider web paper with a free image I found online.  You can’t have Halloween without spiders, right!

Before I get to the challenges I want to enter, just a note to remind you that Penny’s have a DT call at the moment!  Pop on over to the blog if you want to enter your name.  We have a wonderful time on the team – you will not be disappointed.

Missing in Action

Hi everyone

Just wanted to let you know that I am still alive :)  I have been missing in action as I have been trying to complete a project that will be ending tomorrow.  Yay!

All this has meant that I had no time for crafting but hopefully next week, things will return to normal (here's hoping!).So come back next week for some craftin' fun!

Hugs

My Memories review and Giveaway



I am a little computer illiterate.  When it comes to things electronic, I am a bit of doofus.  So it took me some time to decide to try this new software for scrapbooking by My Memories.  And now I am so glad that I did!  It is so easy to use – I watched one tutorial on YouTube and was able to do this (although very simple) layout of my little doggy children.  So you KNOW it must be easy to use.

Review-001

The software comes with LOADS of pre-loaded layouts and all sorts of embellishments and papers – enough to keep you busy for weeks.  And on the My Memories website there are enough kits (free and for sale) to boggle the mind.  They are all so pretty.

I downloaded one of the free quick pages and just look how pretty this is.

My Album 2_2-001

I can’t wait to start trying them on my cards – that is going to be so much fun!!

And now I have some AWESOME news!  My Memories are giving me the opportunity to share this programme with you.  That is right, I am giving away a FULL VERSION of the software.  So if you want to join the fun, just fill in the Rafflecopter below and

GOOD LUCK!

a Rafflecopter giveaway If you cannot wait, you can buy the software directly from MY MEMORIES and if you use my coupon code of STMMMS47964, you will save $10.00 :)

Die-Cuts with The Poodles

DT Member

Challenge – Let’s see those die-cuts
10 August – 20 August 2012

This time it is a fun challenge with the Poodles.  Come and show us your die-cuts.

Click on the Poodles Badge to see what my team mates did.

I used part of a Saturated Canary freebie image, coloured with my promakers.  Little pearls finished off her hair.  

My die-cut is very simple but I thought it fit well with the card.

What a mess! WOYWW

It has been a while since I have joined in WOYWW with The Stamping Ground and it is mostly because my table is such a mess.  I just can’t seem to keep it in order.  There is no space for me and maybe that is why I am feeling so uncreative today!  I am hoping to shame myself into a cleaning session . . .
