La-La Land April 2015 New Release Showcase Day 2


It's Day 2 of the inspiration using the new stamps and dies from La-La Land Crafts. Once again I've used one of my stained glass window digital papers from Tin Teddy - but this time to create a church window by adding it behind the new La-La Land Arched Window die. The fabulous Praying Marci stands perfectly in front of the window - making this a fabulous idea for a confirmation card.

Here's a reminder of what the full release looks like....

Anything Goes with Buttons or Butterflies in La-La Land


This weeks it's all about Buttons or Butterflies in La-La Land. I have made another mini double easel card - these are sooo much FUN! I have done a tutorial for these on the La-La Land blog HERE if you're interested in trying one yourself. This one has a bit of a Spring feel about it too with the colours going on. Shame it's Autumn here ;) The "flying" butterfly is attached by a thin strip of acetate. Just a hint - scuff up the area of your acetate you are planning on applying glue to - it makes it stcik better if it has something to grip to!

Daisy Elf from Aurora Wings


This Easter weekend there has been a party going on over at the Aurora Wings Facebook page  to celebrate reaching 2,250 members. This gorgeous Daisy Sprite image is a freebie Mitzi is giving out for her fabulous fans and Facebook page members. 

As a lucky DT member I got my hands on this little cutie early. Luckily for me it was one of those days when time, inspiration and motivation all aligned and I managed to have her printed off, coloured and on a card in less than 2 hours!!!! Unheard of for me - LOL. Thanx so much to Mitzi for the gorgeous inspiration she gives us all, and to my laundry who waited while I made the time to play ;)

A New Release from Aurora Wings


Today I am happily playing along with a new release showcase of this gorgeous new image from Aurora Wings called Reverie. I have popped her onto a digi designer paper before printing her out - a technique I use often and LOVE as it adds a whole new dimension to the image. I had originally planned to use more "mothy" colours but then I figured this is fantasy art so I can do what I like. Practicality and realism play a little too much into my card making and I want to break out of the mold a little bit more.....baby steps though ;)

Don't forget to check out the rest of the AMAZING DT inspiration on our BLOGWe also have a very active Facebook Fan Group with additional contests, challenges and inspiration.  We hope to see you there.

Spring/Easter in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are getting ready for Easter and Spring. I think my fenced egg box is a little bit of both. The box base was cut on my cameo using a design from the Silhouette store. I replaced the grass from that design with the La-La Land Tulip border. I also made a platform for my large Easter eggs to sit in and cut a hole using one of my stitched circles dies so it would sit nicely. The butterfly has a thin strip of acetate holding it up and giving it a fluttery movement everytime the box is moved.

The cute little mousey is from the La-La Land Stump set. You can find the retired rubber stamp set HERE (if still available) or HERE in digi.

Doilies in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are using Doilies. La-La Land Crafts have some wonderful doily dies and I have used one here in the background. I also used a Prima paper pad and fussy cut the overlays of the dress from a pattern with lace/doilies on. I paper pieced the underskirt, sash and headband after giving them the glitter treatment - glitter looks so nice on stage ;) The bottom sections of the dress overlay are raised up to give some movement to her dress.

Aurora Wings Challenge #13


This month our Aurora Wings Challenge is....ANYTHING GOES!

Recently one of the ladies in the Facebook group commissioned this fabulous microbiologist image called Cultured from Mitzi. This image immediately appealed to me having worked in micro labs for 20+ years :) I have also found a number of other crafty friends have the same science background which is always fun. I used some microscopy images as my background paper and overlaid her onto them before printing - this completed my nerdy science design and was perfect for an upcoming birthday for a fellow microbiologist.

Don't forget to check out the rest of the AMAZING DT inspiration on our BLOGWe also have a very active Facebook Fan Group with additional contests, challenges and inspiration.  We hope to see you there.
