It's Digi Choosday Challenge Day - Week 2 - January Birthdays

Hello everybody

Welcome to the second of this year’s Digi Choosday challenges and it’s January birthdays.

*DOWNLOAD Work & Play 8 **BONUS**FULL Collection
I've always struggled when it comes to making boys/male cards as I don’t want to go too cutesy so I squealed with delight when the Work and Play CD’s and downloads appeared as they cover the male themes really really well.  I was doubly delighted to find out that a new Work & Play digis (Number 8!!!) had been released and have had a sneaky play with it ahead of the release date last week.  I've made a male birthday card using the coloured image of the guitar boy which I have printed out four times and decoupaged in layers using Pinflair Glue gel.  You can buy the image HERE as a single one which isn't coloured and the CD for the full collection is available HERE and the download available HERE

I have used four of the papers available on the collection and resized them using my Do Crafts Digital Designer and layered them onto one another to create the squares.  Finished off the design with one of the many many tags available and with a length of satin musical note ribbon which I've distressed using some Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

Here is my crafty make:-

These are the ingredients I have used:

  • 8x8 card
  • Sheets of card to print the images onto
  • Digi image and papers and sentiment from the Work & Play 8 CD collection available HERE and HERE
  • Pinflair Glue for the decoupage elements
  • Ribbon with musical notes on
  • Distress Ink – Old Paper

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.  Maybe you could make it your New Year’s resolution to enter our challenge each week.  We would love to see your creations, so what are you waiting for…. Get crafting!!  And remember, it’s not just for cards, you can create ANYTHING you want from home d├ęcor to cards.
