Polkadoodles Crafting Challenge

Happy Friday Everyone!
Here today for 
*Anything Goes*

For my project this week I have mainly used the lovely collection 
Winnie Starfish and Sandcastles
I have made a Pocket page mini album which was cut on my portrait.
I loved using all the delish papers
this really was a labour of Love but so much fun

All the tags were coloured using Polychromo Pencils
Mounted onto cardstock
and then attached different coloured Organza Swiss dots ribbons ~ you can find these here, from Crafty Ribbons

The inside contains more pictures from the collection along with some quotes
(see more in the moving pictures below)

I finished off adding   a charm and some shells
For the seaweed on the front I used the fantastic Cherry blossom die

Starfish & Sandcastles by Felicity

I really wanted to share with you this game that Felicity made
She made it at one of her summer craft classes but as soon as she was home reconstructed it.

Felicity made the background colured with pencils
and used the Polkadoodles collection
for the creatures ( I cut these out for her)
Felicity coloured these 
and added randomn numbers to the back of each one
As we wanted the game to last I laminated them (optional)
and then she popped a paper clip on each one so they become magnetic
Using her rod she had made at class
all thats needed here is wood, string and a small magnet
The game was complete
Simply pop them behind the background so no one can see them
dangle your rod and fish away
You could vary the game -i.e the highest number wins
letters on the back - spell something
My little Grandson visited on Sunday he loved playing 
Thank you for looking 
P.s ignore the numbers on the front I have added those as I am using this for our Polkadoodles weekly game on facebook - why not pop over and join us you could win a prize xx

Live in the Sunshine

I have had an afternoon of stamping fun
and decided this time on a bookmark for my Granddaughter Felicity
She loves reading and joined in the Summer reading challenge at our local library.
She has her own book bag for when she comes to stay but all the bookmarks we have made she has taken home so here is the start of a few for here.
I know she will love this but may not be too happy that I've used shrinkles without her she loves the magic paper!!

I have used watercolour card I like to use this when using the Distress Oxides 
So the background was done using Oxides - Salty Ocean ~Broken China ~Peacock Feathers and Lucky Clover - The stamping (except for the sentiment ) was done using Faded Jeans.

The actual bookmark was Salty Ocean and then spritzed
I then did the background and gave a good spritz and added droplets of water
I used stamp set
Wish you were here
The sentiment was stamped and then cut out
I coloured the starfish and the dolphin using my lovely polychromo pencils
adhered the starfish 

added one of the dolphins with a few foam tabs and the other which had been stamped on shrinkles was attacked with my heat gun 
I soooooo love him, uber cutness

I finished of with splashes of white pen and a little doodling with black pen
and a slice of ribbon

Polkadoodles Crafting ~Christmas Organiser

Happy Friday to you all hope you all have a great weekend
I am sharing with you a Christmas Organiser that I made
It took a few days to make but I did love the outcome.
I started of with the file from Sandra's that you can find here

I used buff card from Papermill direct as its nice and sturdy and a good colour choice for a Christmas project
Once my project was all cut out I  inked the edges with walnut stain distress ink.
I then used the lovely
Winnie Winterland to decorate
this was totally fun
Not only is it decorated outside but also inside
I filled it with bits n bobs for Christmas
Like tags, cards, bows, flowers etc
This is the inside that lifts out

and here is the drawer that pulls out
 A quick look at the inside
Some cards with matching envelopes

I totally loved making this and already have plans to make another
Here is a little capture of many more photos there really is so much to see

Polkadoodles Crafting ~ Be a Unicorn

Happy Monday to you all hope you have a good week
The sun has got his hat on here its a lovely day
I am here to share with you a little tag that I made last night
Have you met the little character 
Li'l Miss Sugarpops from Polkadoodles
She is totally sweet I'm totes in love
The image I have used today is
You can find this and many more in the store
I coloured her up using Graph'It markers and Polychromos using a little white marker for dots on her stars
I used a few of the sentiments mainly because I could not choose which one to use
using again the oxides to match them in and giving each one a little doodle round with black micron pen. 
I adored making the background to my tag
Of course I used my new love of Distress Oxides, I also used a stamp down the side I'm so not sure why but it made me think of candy floss (must of been the colour ...maybe)
I felt the background was so pretty it did not need a lot of work so a few droplets of water here and there was all that was needed

Ula ~ Polkadoodle Crafting

Well yesterday was the magical day My Granddaughter has broken up from school for summer
which means we get a little visitor to stay
As soon as Felicity was through the door she was straight to her craft desk
Which also means crafting time for Grandma
I am so into making tags at the moment 
So that was our play for the day
Felicity made 2 tags for her Mum with stamped cats on and one she drew

and here is mine another Ula make
I just love her attitude
This image is called Ula create and you can find her in the Polkadoodles store right here
The sentiment is from Ula's Life collection

For the background I used Distress Oxide's ~ I'm loving these
I used the leafy stamp from Belle Papillon Collection
and painted it orange
I used Polychromos and Graph'It markers to colour Ula and with some tiny alphabet stamps popped her name on her book.

With the sentiment  printed I dusted round with distress ink and then used a white marker to highlight.
I then doodled round with a micro pen.

Ula ~ Polkadoodles Crafting

What a fab afternoon I had yesterday
I have always wanted to try a bit of mixed media and yesterday I think I managed it
I love the new Ula character from Polkadoodles
I have not managed to play with them all yet so my project was set around 

I started out cutting a tag from water colour paper
and then used Distress Oxides broken china and faded jeans spritzed with water and dabbed my tag in
whoooooooo I love this stuff it was just so pretty
Now I felt it needed another dab of something striking
I had vintage photo Distress Oxide in my hand, dare I? dare I? dare I? eeekkkk I did it just a smidge Oh My Days it worked , it actually worked
There was actually no stopping me now
I stamped some seaweed on the background and painted it up 
I stamped some tiny bubbles using faded jeans normal distress ink

Printed the sentiment and dabbed the edge again using faded jeans, I also used a white pen to highlight the letters.
I squiggled round the edge of the tag with a micro black pen and also around the little bubbles 
The mermaid was coloured using a mixture of Graph'It Markers, Polychromo Pencils and Gelly roll pens

 and finally Ula was finished of with some sparkle on her wings and for the shell. Popped her on with foam for some depth.
