Easy Peasy ANYTHING GOES at Crafty Catz

Good morning are you well hope so. Have a little sore throat now omg that boy of mine likes to share his bugs but on the whole I am fine and yippee it is Friday. Wow you did us proud at Crafty Catz last week with our special Birthday Celebrations. My candy is still on till the 10th so if you haven't entered have a peep. All winners from the challenge will be announced as usual on Saturday so check them out.
So this week it is the lovely Janette's turn to pick the theme and she has made it nice and easy with
ANYTHING GOES
Our sponsor for this challenge is the fab digital company BUGABOO

So now it is my turn to show you what I have made and no card today just a little jotter for notes and lists. I have used a image from our sponsor. I picked this image because if you are like me I like a cuppa when I am making lists so thought this was apt for the cover.

I have coloured the image with my promarkers and used 3d gloss on the cups. Card from the papermill and some seem binding from crafty Ribbons. few candy dots coloured to co ordinate with the image. I have used my Martha Stuart punch on the top. I really enjoyed making this and think you might see a few more of these. So that mine lets hope you can find some time this weekend to join us remember we allow up to 3 projects per challenge now. Pop along to the blog and checkout the rest of the teams creations.
Before I go i would just like to say a BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our leader Carol for this weekend..

Good evening have you had a good day. I have been busy doing my DT Duties but have had time to play with a New Digi image from CRAFTY SENTIMENTS called WITCHY RIDES you can find it in the shop this week at a special price of 99p. Yes what a great price.
Oh isnt Harriet sweet in her halloween costume. I think she is training to be a great witch. So onto my version of this fab digi

Image is coloured with my promarkers and the background is coloured with chalk and has a lovely shimmer but the camera doesnt pick it up. Few bats part of a waltzing stamp ser stamped onto it. Purple satin ribbon and Dp is from a old papermania pad.Some Black glitter card to give it some sparkle and her hat and boots have been 3d glossed,
Hope you like my little quick halloween harriet and checkout Crafty Sentiments for some more inspiration using this fab digital stamp.

ORIGAMI DIAMOND FOLD CARD - WHY NOT SWING

Good morning hope you are all well I have been a little out of sorts this weekend so forgive me if i havent visited you i have been trying to stay off the computer to help. 
However I have to show this amazing fold for a card I came across at Splitcoast stampers. As you will be aware I am guesting for a while at CRAFTY SENTIMENTS and boy am I enjoying it. The stamps we are given to work with are just a dream  and the team are so friendly and the lovely Suzette is just the best. 
Well each month we have a stamp release and i was given a secret stamp no one knew except Jan our lovely leader and we where asked to make something other than a card unless it was a fancy fold one. 
Today is my day to d├ębut my stamp and it is this gorgeous little girl on a swing called 
WHY NOT SWING 
which you can find in the shop here
why not head on over and checkout the rest of the stamps in the shop
if you pop along to the INSPIRATIONAL blog you will see each day a stamp made up into a stunning creation by one of the team from the release.
Well the card I am sharing with you is called a ORIGAMI DIAMOND FOLD CARD
and although it may look complicated it really isnt and I think i will be making a fair few of these.
1 tip though do not use card for the base and do not use very thick paper a good weight but not too stiff.
I will not bore you with all the details but just share a few pictures if you like the look of it then hop on over to the INSPIRATIONAL BLOG I have done a step by step tutorial on it with lots of pictures.
