Dear Alice

Who doesn't love/like the Alice In Wonderland story but to make things even better Lily made the characters into Octopode Factory Stamps. And I had to have a play.

A little sparkle added by the way of that lovely Vintage Glitter.
The best for me has just got to be The Mad Hatter, so I put him on the front.

Here's the rest of the Alice Gang on the back.

Dont forget if you dont like stamping and colouring in we now stock The Octopode Factory image sheets.

Here Kitty Kitty!

You've got to love this little chap.......he's just looking for trouble!

I've used him here with subduded colours and an unfussy style but he could be as wacky as you like. He's one of my favourite Octopode stamps so I'm sure you'll be seeing more of him.

You can find him here......

Hope you like him

Jan: Songbird

Jean has got these delightful mini canvases in the shop. They're so cute and so easy to decorate. I've stamped and then sprayed my canvas with Shimmerz (Bubblegum). Then embellished with an umberella from a sheet of Websters pages(Wonderfall), Bird image from CatsLife and a strip of lace.
What will you do with yours? Leave a link and we'll pop over and take a peek.

Julie: 'Beauty in the Garden' - Scrapping with Studio2Mers

Hello again.

I've been scrapbooking with the new arty, eclectic and wonderfully colourful Studio2Mers papers now available in the shop.

For this page I've used a sheet from the inky-stencilled-looking 'Constellation' range:
For those of you who love the look and feel of inky, painty, messy techniques ... but who don't want to get your fingers dirty then these papers are for you!

You might not be able to tell from the photographs but I haven't added any ink or paint at all to the Studio2Mers backing paper. Everything you see - the stencilled effects - the paint-stamped effects - the spritzed effects ... they're all printed on the paper already, all I needed to do was add embellishments and a photo.

And here's what else I added ...
  • A border punched sheet of Collections Elements Noir et Creme 6x6 paper:
  • A cluster of embellishments including an inked doily, a die-cut heart, a vintage milk bottle top; baker's twine:
  • Wording, appropriate to the photo of flowers in my garden, cut from one of the Vintage Comics in stock; 
  • Similarly, I tore an image out of the same vintage comic and slipped that behind my photo;
 All of the Studio2Mers papers are also double-sided and you can see images of both sides of each sheet when you click on each individual design on the website. Seeing as how all of the inky, painty messiness had already been done for you ... the hardest part in using them is deciding which side to go for.
Unless of course you take the advice DT member Jan has often passed on to us all: 'if in doubt ... buy both'!
Here's to crafting with Studio2Mers and to clean-hands!

Little Book

I think all the design team loved these little book from Collection Elements. And had lots of fun creating with them.I love having 2 in a pack. I though they might look nice and work well on the front of a card. So I decorated one of the black ones. Using the alphabets from Collections Elements as well I put the words OPEN on the front of it and tied it all on with some black ribbon.

So open the little book up and you can put what ever message you want inside. I used a Happy Birthday banner one.
