Club La-La Land - February 2015



Welcome to my showcase of the La-La Land Craft's February Club Kit. For more information on the fabulous Club you can find all the information HERE. Just note that Club products (stamps and dies) will not be available for purchase outside of the kits until 12 months after their release!!!

I have to say that this month's club is my new favourite! Being someone who LOVES to sew I was in raptures when I saw this gorgeous sewing fairy and the accompanying stamps and dies. After seeing my team-mate Sandie's AMAZING sewing machine project I felt inspired to create something a little different as well as a card - check out what I came up with......

 I have seen this gorgeous sewing basket before so tracked it down and am happy with the final result :)


Just a BUYER BEWARE note - I bought the svg file to cut this in my cameo - all went well until I got to my craftroom with all of the pieces to discover the 5 pages of shapes are not to scale and NONE of the pieces fit together as each page is scaled differently. I then printed off the pdf which IS to scale and used the measurements on this to re-size the imported files. You can just print the pdf onto your card and cut out but I don't like seeing the print lines. Link.....http://mytimemadeeasy.com/store/index.php...

It's Sketch Time in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are playing with this fun sketch. I love seeing all the different takes on the same sketch - it's an interesting study in how different we all are! I've gone for a fairly formal style of card and so Masquerade Marci was the perfect choice. I had originally intended not to add in any extra colour - but a brown dress just seemed a tad drab and I'm happy with the pop of colour I ended up with. I was a little disappointed with my pleats though - I'm thinking I need to get my eyes tested again as I struggled with my focus - even with my glasses on!!!! Ah well - she still turned out OK!

Aurora Wings Challenge - My Lucky Colours

 

This month over at Aurora Wings Challenges we are playing with ....


 Now I don't have a lucky colour as such but I do have a favourite one - green - in particular lime green. I used Mitzi's gorgeous Spirit of Diamonds with Roses image and added a burst of green. I love green and pink together so pink was the perfect choice to add in to soften the look.

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.

Ready for Spring in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are getting ready for Spring - well Spring for our Northern Hemisphere friends anyway. I had a lot of fun with this one and the little spider makes me think of Little Miss Muffet - but I love the fun of finding the versatility in my dies. Why should he be hidden until Halloween :)

Valentines in La-La Land


Being a cardmaker and not celebrating Valentines does make for an interesting life. I have used hearts and the word "Love" on my card but for me it's more of a birthday card than Valentines - which suits me just fine! I paper pieced her hat and dress but like always I added some shading. I also like to tie my paper piecing into the layout of my card by using the same papers somewhere else - I hope you like it.

Photo Inspiration in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are using the gorgeous photo on the left as inspiration. When I first saw the picture I thought it looked like pinks and blues - but on closer inspection the pinks were more soft browns. I also added in some black to represent the silhouette of the tree. I love how these colours worked together and hope you do too.

One For The Boys in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land is time for the boys to shine. I love little Luka but like most of us I tend to use Marci so I can add pretty flowers and bling - my comfort zone - LOL. But this little guy and the new Tools Border makes creating for the boys fabulously easy.

Aurora Wings Challenge - Pro/Con Valentine's



This challenge was a hard one for me to play along with as my father passed away on Valentine's Day when I was 18 years old and I haven't celebrated it since. I asked Mitzi if it was OK to use this gorgeous image - Profile of a Woman with Roses -  as I think the roses work well with the theme but the woman looks sad and reflective- which kinda suits the way I am on Valentines. I hope you like it.

Funky Colours in La-La Land

 

This week in La-La Land we are playing with Funky Colours. As you can see I decided to give Marci a bright blue rinse - LOL. I must admit I was cursing with all the ruffles on her dress as I was cutting for paper piecing - but I'm glad I made the effort in the end.

I also shortened the lacy border die cuts but chopping them off and matching the scallops up - the cuts aren't too noticeable and makes the dies even more versatile.
