POLKADOODLES MAGIC GARDEN SAMPLE

PRE-ORDER Magic Garden CD-rom Hello

I'm back again with another one of my samples I made for Nikky's show on C and C featuring the Magic Garden CD

You can buy the collections on pre-order by going to the website.  Click HERE for full details of everything available.

So along with the matchbox template on this collection there's also a mailer template which can be used for those cards that you make that have a lot of dimension.  The mailer template prints out on one sheet of card and is really easy to put together... just as easy as the matchbox template






I used the green check paper for the base and then one of the chalk sentiments and the flowers from the collection which I decoupaged.  I added some cream lace to the bottom edge of the mailer and used Memento Ink in Desert Sand on the edges and finished the mailer off with some Liquid Pearls in Gold Pearl.

Here it is....



Hope you like it.

POLKADOODLES LITTLE KINGDOM SAMPLE

Little Kingdom Collection - over 500 printables



Hello

I'm still sharing my makes from the Create & Craft show on the 27th April and I've decided today to share with you another of my makes from the Little Kingdom Collection (CD)

I just love the templates on this collection, considering I've always been scared by templates in the past, but with careful cutting and a bit of a deep breath, I managed to make the milk carton template on this collection by printing the template onto card and then printing one of the papers from the collection on the other side ( a tip I got from Scatty Jan off the DT)

I just love the stripy paper on the collection.

I then printed off some embellies and resized them so they would fit onto the sides of the milk carton.... glass jars which I layered the butterflies over and then printed off some keys and the flower garland and the 'home' word art and then using some twine and Stickles Glitter Glue in Icicle, voila, my simple make was finished.

How easy was that?  I would love to see your makes using the milk carton template on our FB pages or maybe enter into one of the forthcoming Polkadoodle challenges.

Here it is....








Hope you like my milk carton.  I can see how this template can be made into lots of different things making it a very versatile template.

Take care

Little Kingdom Collection - over 500 printablesPRE-ORDER Magic Garden CD-rom

PRE-ORDERS can now be made on the website too for both collections, be it stamps or CDs or both.  Just click HERE

So I'm popping on to show you another of my samples made for the TV show which you may have seen Nigel holding in his hand which had the flowers on from the Little Kingdom Collection







The base of the card and each of the layers were made from an X Cut Extra Large Die called Square Paranthesis.  I used white card for the base but Kraft card for the rest of the layers and also the lovely checked paper from the collection.  I printed the sentiment from the collection onto Kraft card as well and then printed lots of the flowers and leaves off from the collection in black and white digi form and coloured them with my Gansai Tambi paints that you saw Nikky using on today's show.  I finished off the centres of the flowers off with Ice Stickles Glitter Glue.

Hope you like it.

So I'm popping on to show you another of my samples made for the TV show which you may have seen Nigel holding in his hand and popping down on the desk.... it's a stepper card with very large toadstools from the Magic Garden CD.


Here it is...








I printed the spotty red and white paper from the collection onto white card to make my stepper base and printed the chalk board sentiment 'Look for the magic in the daily routine of life' and then embellished the stepper with rolled roses, oversized toadstools and leaves and a fence all from the collection.  It's a jam packed collection and I think if I created with it every day for the next year I still wouldn't use everything on it....that's no lie either.  Combine this CD with the stamps and you have infinite things to create.

I used Ice Stickles Glitter Glue and Liquid Pearls in garnet to decorate the stepper card.

Hope you like it.
