Papercraft Essentials Magazine issue 99

Evening folks, just a quickie post about the fact that my Papercraft Essentials Magazine popped through the letter box the other day. Why is that so interesting I hear you ask....I'm in it, that's why.    I have a wonderful 2 page spread with a fantastico project for you. I used lots and lots of Jellypark images. The main feature of the project is the amazing Calendar digis which are also available from Jellypark.
Here's a pic of the front cover. I'd show you the inside but don't want to spoil the surprise for those of you who haven't got it yet lol. Page 34 by the way he he.

I enjoyed making the calendar so very much and to see it photographed professionally was just wonderful. To top it all the lovely people at the magazine sent it back to me so I get to utilise it.
Happy Crafting Folks

New releases in the jellypark store

Good morning planet earth, oh and shiver me timbers, I'm a bit late with that one as it was national Pirate Day yesterday apparently, but never mind lol.
I'm here today with a card that I made from one of the new release images which is available
Isn't it just Fabulous with a capital F.  
I decided to try cutting around it so that I could keep all the lettering together as I had an idea to make a door hanger for my daughters room. I thought I would try a smaller version first on a card. It worked a treat so that will definitely be one of my weekend projects. The papers and frame are from a digi kit and the flowers are made from a die cut that I have.
The other new release card will be blogged shortly and it will be part of my alphabet theme blog posts :o)
I spent a very happy couple of hours yesterday rearranging my promarker collection, as the new Autumn/Winter set arrived. It was such a wonderfully satisfying job. I just hope they don't bring any new colours out anytime soon though because I'm not sure I could do it again :o).
Happy Crafting.

A is for Anniversary

A little while ago over on the Jellypark Team twitter account, I did an alphabet product list, advertising digi's for each letter of the alphabet. I really enjoyed doing it, so I have decided to make up for my total lack of blogging recently by challenging myself to do alphabet blog posts.
Today's offering is A for Anniversary.
It was our 15 year wedding anniversary yesterday, I had a lovely day with no cooking, we went out for lunch on our own and then took the children out for dinner, both meals were yummy and I felt very spoilt.
I made a card for my hubby using this super cute love bird digital stamp from Jellypark. When I printed the image out I wasn't sure of a colour scheme so I googled love birds and oh my goodness they are the sweetest, prettiest little feathered friends ever.

I used my safmat for the sentiment, I've had it for ages but forgot all about it, it worked perfectly to get some writing on my background paper. I used some washi tape and coloured it with distress inks to match the paper. The birds are coloured with promarkers and then glossed with glossy accents. I then used my distressing inks to colour the background of the digi.
That's it for today I will be back very soon with B is for ??????
p.s. the current challenge over at the Jellypark Friends Challenge Blog is "one for the kids" and it's proving to be really popular, I'm just heading over there to do some more commenting on the entries:o)

New release time over at Jellypark Friends

Oh well slap my wrist it's been a while hasn't it. To be fair I've not had much time to spend in the craft room.
I did however go in there the other day when I saw the latest new release image from Jellypark, it is so super cute that I just had to make something.
Shame I can't enter our own challenge this week as it's "One for the Kids"
I made a tag with some pretty ballerina paper that I've had for years, I really enjoyed colouring her in, she will definitely be making an appearance on my daughters birthday card this year.
Promise not to leave it so long next time.

Happy Crafting
