It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 48 - Anything Goes

Hello everybody             

It’s Digi Choosday day again. 

Hope you’re ready to enter another Digi Choosday Challenge.

Every week our challenge will be ‘ANYTHING GOES ’ but the design team will have their own challenge theme just to keep them on their toes, which this week it’s SPOTS AND/OR STRIPES, of which I've used a mixture on the paper and embellies and on the colouring I've done.

And as usual if you click on the Thumb Linkies below you can be speedily taken over to the Doodle website for the collection details.

My make this week uses one of the older digis called ANGELBERRY SKATER which is available on a CD collection or on its own as a black and white digi.


The papers and embellies I've used are from the Winnie in Winterland collection and the Festive Christmas collection with the addition of a little christmas tree I bought from The Works and some little snowballs from Hobbycraft.  I coloured the black and white digi with a mixture of polychromos pencils, Inktense pencils and a white gel and gold gel pen.  The kraft card shape is a circle that I folded in half.  It was in a pack that I bought from The Works as well.
Here is my make for this week’s challenge:

It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 47 - Anything Goes

Hello everybody             

It’s Digi Choosday day again.  Hope you’re ready to enter another Digi Choosday Challenge.

Every week our challenge will be ‘ANYTHING GOES ’ but the design team will have their own challenge theme just to keep them on their toes, which this week it’s RED & GREEN/WINDOWS & DOORS.

As usual you can click on the Thumb Linkies below to be taken off to the Doodles website for all the collection details.

So I've made another card to add to my Christmas collection. But this time I've gone big to make an A4 size card using the wonderful Versatile Door Die out of Kraft card.

I've created a scene using elements and papers from the Festive Christmas collection and the Winnie in Winterland Collection.  Check out the red and green wallpaper and the carpet too.  Love love love the versatility of the papers from these collections.  I created the scene outside the window and then used snowflake acetate from Hunkydory to go over the top before glueing my die cut windows over the top.  I've added a sprig of mistletoe over the cosy fireside chair as the person who lives there is hoping he'll get lucky over the Christmas season.  Ha ha ha.  With touches of glitter here and there on the tree and the fire flames this is a really quick make from me and very one dimensional.  I've left a space on the bottom right of the card so I can personalise it when I work out who to send it to.

Here is my DT Inspiration for this week:

It's Digi Choosday Day - Week 46 - Anything Goes

Hello everybody             

It’s Digi Choosday day again. 

Hope you’re ready to enter another Digi Choosday Challenge.

Every week our challenge will be ‘ANYTHING GOES ’ but the design team will have their own challenge theme just to keep them on their toes, which this week it’s MORE THAN ONE LAYER.

And as usual if you click on the Thumb Linkies below you can be speedily taken over to the Doodle website for the collection details.

My make this week uses the brand new Winnie in Winterland collection which I've used Design Sheet Number 12 and one of the backing papers and just printed out the design sheet several times so I could decoupage the character and the trees.  I've used an 8x8 card base and Deco Art Glistening Snow Writer for the tree glitter and Dew Drop Versa Magic Ink in Jumbo Java for the edging of the backing paper and Liquid Pearls in White Opal for the snow drops and Pinflair Glue Gel to assemble my decoupage.  At the bottom of the card you will see that I've cut away a portion of the card and inserted some snowfall acetate from Hunkydory.

Here is my make for this week’s challenge:
