Jill-Spirit of Christmas -Tiddly Inks-TPE279

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!  I had a great time in San Francisco with my family.

For the month of December we have a month long challenge over at The Pink Elephant blog that uses a photo for inspiration.  Here is my take on the photo:

 
I used an image from Tiddly Inks called Jill-Spirit of Christmas .  I used two different paper pads for this card, one from Heidi Swapp and one from MME called Lost & Found Christmas.

 
Oc course I colored it up with copics.  :)

Mini Album - TPE277

Hey everyone!

I am so excited to share this awesome mini album I made for the "Anything But A Card" Challenge over at The Pink Elephant!


I used a pre-cut album that I bought at Michael's.  It's in the shape of a camera.  I love how this looks! 

I used a paper pad from MME called Cut & Paste.  There are so many embellishments that I have in this album - I will talk about them all in the video on my side bar. 


I have completed all of the pages and I will put a link to the video below and on the side of my blog when I finish taping it.  I hope you guys love it and want to join in on this weeks challenge over at TPE.

Home Sweet Home - Avery Elle - TPE264


 


Happy Monday! 

This week over at The Pink Elephant we have a Sketch for you to follow. 

 
Here is my take on the sketch:
 
 
I used the cute little camper from the Avery Elle "Home Sweet Home" set.  I colored it with copic markers.  I used the Here and There paper pad from Studio Calico, but when I set it up the colors were competing with the camper and looked very busy.  I fixed it by adding a layer of vellum over the little squares and I love it!  :)
