It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 50 - Last Minute Christmas

Hello everybody

Well it’s not long now till the man in the red suit will be visiting and leaving pressies for those who have been good this year.

I hope all your festive plans have come together and you are now finished with your shopping and wrapping etc.

This week’s DIGI CHOOSDAY  challenge is ‘LAST MINUTE CHRISTMAS’ and as I loved using the penguin, gingerbread people and Rudolph images to make my gift tags a couple of weeks ago I thought I would stick with that theme and make some matching cards as many people commented how cute the tags were. 

The Festive Hollybobs collection is so immense that you will never ever run out of inspiration for all your crafty makes and the inspiration from my other team mates shows that there are no limits to what can be made!!

Here is my crafty make.







These are the ingredients I have used:

Sheets of Kraft card to print all the elements out onto

3 x cards measuring 6x6”

Rudolph, Penguin and Gingerbread people from the Festive Hollybobs Work & Play Collection available HERE (also available as a CD version HERE)

Pinflair Glue for the decoupage elements

Stickles Glitter Glue in XMAS RED

Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Twinkles Glitter Glue

Ice Stickles Crystal Ice Glitter Glue

Red and white twine

Silver little bells (3 for each card)

The DIGI CHOOSDAY blog comes out each Tuesday and you have a fortnight in which to get your entries into the challenge which has a different theme each week and me and the other wonderfully creative team mates get to showcase crafty makes using Nikky's wonderful digi images available from HERE

Hope you will join me and my other teamies each Tuesday to see what we’re up to. 

I’m now taking a crafty break from my blog for a couple of weeks, but I will still be crafting behind the scenes as I've plenty of orders to be getting on with.  I would like to wish all my crafty followers and bloggers alike a very MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR and hope your festive holidays are peaceful and full of joy and laughter.

It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 49 - Christmas Table/Decor

Hello everybody

Well we are getting nearer to Christmas and I hope all your plans are coming together.  I've a few things to wrap and the tree is up and looking festive, but today is Tuesday and that can only mean one thing…. it’s DIGI CHOOSDAY day and this week’s challenge is ‘Christmas Table/Decor’. 

I've been wanting to do a large project for some time now and this project is it!!

I started with a large 12 x 12 canvas which I covered with green/white spotty paper from the FESTIVE HOLLYBOBS WORK & PLAY 5 COLLECTION which I have Mod Podged to the canvas and then printed out four copies of the Festive Hollybobs Santa in A4 size and cut him out and decoupaged him.  I've then added Fluffy Stuff and glitter to his suit for dimension and Glossy Accents to his boots.  I've printed out the polka dot letters three times from Magical Winter CD available HERE and decoupaged them as well.  I then layered them onto the canvas and then on the polka dots I have used Liquid Pearls in White Opal.  The canvas has been finished off with TIM HOLTZ DISTRESS STAIN in Tea Dye on the edges to give it a rustic/old look.  The layers of holly have been printed again from the Festive Hollybobs download and then finished off with STICKLES GLITTER GLUE  in Xmas Red. 

The Festive Hollybobs collection is so immense that you will never ever run out of inspiration for all your crafty makes and the inspiration from my other team mates shows that there are no limits to what can be made!!

Here is my crafty make.













These are the ingredients I have used:

  • 12 x 12 Canvas
  • Sheets of white card to print all the elements out onto
  • Santa and the background paper and the holly from HERE (also available as a CD version HERE)
  • Pinflair Glue for the decoupage elements
  • Mod Podge
  • Glossy Accents for Santa’s boots
  • Fluffy Stuff from Woodware
  • Tim Holtz Disress Stains in Tea Dye
  • Stickles Glitter Glue in Xmas Red 
  • Liquid Pearls in White Opal
  • Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Twinkles Glitter Glue


The Digi Choosday  blog comes out each Tuesday and you have a fortnight in which to get your entries into the challenge which has a different theme each week and me and the other wonderfully creative team mates get to showcase crafty makes using Nikky’s wonderful digi images available from Polka Doodles

Hope you will join me and my other teamies each Tuesday to see what we’re up to. 

Pop back soon to see what else I've been creating.

It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 48 - Xmas

Hello everybody

Well it’s Digi Choosday day and this week’s challenge is ‘Xmas’. 

I’m getting ahead with my Christmas wrapping and have designed some gift tags with Kraft card.

The Rudolph, gingerbread people and penguin are from the Festive Hollybobs Work and Play collection available HERE as an automatic download or  HERE as a CD version.  

It’s absolutely full of the most wonderful digi images that are both coloured and black and white for you to colour yourselves and a large (very large) collection of papers and bows and other embellishments which all co-ordinate marvelously.

You will never ever ever run out of inspiration for all your crafty Christmas and winter makes. 

I've used the card inserts for the basis of the tag and then designed the tags in my Do Crafts Digital Designer and then cut out by hand and decoupaged and glittered them before finishing off with a length of red and white twine and some jingle bells.  There’s plenty of room to write a festive message on the back.

Here is my crafty make.









These are the ingredients I have used:

  • Kraft card
  • Card inserts resized and designed in Do Crafts Digital designer into a tag shape
  • Rudolph, Gingerbread people, and the penguin from HERE (also available as a CD version HERE)
  • Pinflair Glue for the decoupage elements
  • Red and white twine
  • Silver jingle bells
  • Stickles Glitter Glue in Xmas Red 
  • Stickles Glitter Glue in Eucalyptus
  • Ice Stickles Crystal Ice
  • Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Twinkles Glitter Glue



The Digi Choosday Blog comes out each Tuesday and you have a fortnight in which to get your entries into the challenge which has a different theme each week and me and the other wonderfully creative team mates get to showcase crafty makes using Nikky’s wonderful digi images available from Polka Doodles.

Hope you will join me and my other teamies each Tuesday to see what we've been creating and I look forward to seeing you enter some of the challenges.

Pop back soon to see what else I've been creating. 

Take care
