Polkadoodles Spring Colours




Hi everyone, today I am sharing some inspiration for a brand new Polkadoodles Challenge. All our challenges are

Anything Goes

while for an added challenge the DT's are featuring spring colours in our creations.
For my DT Inspiraton this week I used one of delightful stamps from LDRS Creative -Polkadoodles Just For You Winnie to decorate a notebook. This stamp is so lovely and gives a perfect image every time.


Here is my notebook:



I stamped my image on Copic Xpress-it cardstock using my Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad. The colours I used are: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20, E57, E55, E53, E51, R0000, R85, R83, R81, Y00, Y11, Y15, Y18, Y21, Y23, Y26, B91, B93, B95, YG03, YG25, YG63, YG67

To cover my notepad I used one of the papers from Twiggy and Toots Paper Heaven 6 and tied ribbon on each of the coils to add some fun.


I hope you come and join in our Polkadoodles Challenge


Happy colouring until next time

Polkadoodles Winter Birthday

It's time for another fabulous Polkadoodles Challenge. As always our challenges are

Anything Goes

For my inspiration I made a wintery Birthday Card.





 I chose a wintery grey paper and a pre-coloured image from Octavia Frosted Winter collection and added a sentiment from Winnies Sugar Sprinkles Sentiments collection. I really love how the Polkadoodles collections all work together, so you always have the perfect paper, image and sentiment for any occasion.

Using a base card stock in dark grey, I layered my papers and images using some Martha Stewart around the page punches and some die cut fancy ovals. I then added a touch of colour with a bouquet of flowers and a ribbon from my stash that tied together the colours in the image and flowers.


Happy crafting until next time....

Polkadoodles Thank You box

Today is the start of the first Polkadoodles Challenge for 2018. As always our challenges are

Anything Goes

For my inspiration I made a Thank You Box Card that folds flat for posting, but pops up to display a thanks you message with flowers in a box.



I used paper, flowers and foilage images from Helga collection with a few roses from the Belle Papillon foilage collection.

I kept the embellishments and layers to a minimum so I can post my thank you card to a friend.

Polkadoodles Not a Card

Hi everyone and welcome to another brand new Polkadoodles Challenge. All our challenges are

Anything Goes

while for an added challenge the DT's are making something other than a card. For my make I decided to create a Christmas wreath using flowers I printed from the Twiggy and Toots Festive Collection. I shaped the leaves and petals and  added some kindy glitz to the edges of each petal. I combined 3 flowers of different sizes to make a single flower, and added a pearl button embellishment as the flower centre.  I added some glitter to the leaves for some more sparkle.

I used an embroidery hoop as the base for my wreath and used my hot glue gun to glue the flowers, leaves, gold lacy embellishments and bow on the hoop. 

Here is my wreath:



Happy crafting until next time....

Polkadoodles Challenge Winter Blues

Hi everyone and welcome to another brand new Polkadoodles Challenge. All our challenges are

Anything Goes

while for an added challenge the DT's are following a theme of Christmas or Winter. This is a strange theme for me, when this week has been filled with hot Summer days in Sydney and next week they are predicting heat wave conditions.

For my DT Inspiration this week I used a pre-coloured image and papers from Octavia Frosted Winter collection. I printed my papers and cut out snowflakes using my Silhouette Cameo. I used a sentiment I found in the Silhouette store and printed it on the background paper before cutting out the top layer.

I then printed one of the pre-coloured frames from the collection to add to my card and finished the snowflakes with some pearl embellishments.


Here is my card:




Happy crafting until next time....



I have entered this card in the following challenges:

Polkadoodles white with a touch of colour

Hi everyone and today I am sharing some inspiration for the latest Polkadoodles Challenge. As always, our challenges are

Anything Goes


with the DT's are creating something white with a touch of colour. I chose to make an easel card.

For my touch of colour, I took inspiration from a patterned paper from the Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun collection. I loved the subtle teal snowflakes, and what better match than the lovely Beary Family image from the Octavia Frosted Winter collection. I coloured my image with Copics.



I hope you come and join in our Polkadoodles Challenge

Polkadoodles - Not a Card

Hi everyone and today I am sharing some inspiration for the latest Polkadoodles Challenge. As always, our challenges are

Anything Goes


with the DT's are bringing a little Christmas spirit and creating something that isn't a card.

Today I made an ornament using one of the pre-printed tags and frames from the Winnie Winterland collection.  I combined a background paper, the joy tag and Christmas garland using my graphics program on my PC I then printed it out and used a scalloped circle die to cut out my ornament. I also cut out another scalloped circle of dark grey card to make a backing. I added a gold ribbon to use to hang it on the tree.


I hope you come and join in our Polkadoodles Challenge
happy colouring until next time
