Stamping Bella Bellarific Friday Challenge- Peggy and Paige Pour Tea

Woo hoo! It's Bellarific Friday time. 
This week's inspiration photo (far below) was stunning, right?

I thought they couldn't be a better image than Peggy and Paige Pour Tea...

These gorgeous girlies are coloured with copics and Stickles added for that bit of sparkle. I stamped out just part of the sentiment. Papers are by MME. Ribbon is recycled. Flowers are made using Magnolia and MFT rolled rose dies.

Can't tell you how much I LOVE this image. The gorgeous dresses, the flower in Paige's hair, teddy on the table, the dainty way Paige is holding her tea cup- sigh, just soooo lovely!

I think this called for a dreamy close up!

Here was your inspiration photo. Peggy and Paige were perfect, no?

Next week's challenge is a sketch (above). Deets for entering are here.
As it will be the first Friday of the month, the DT will be showcasing Em's STAMP OF THE MONTH which means you get a stonking 20% of that stamp for the whole month!

Bellarific Friday- Mo Manning's The Reader

Hello my crafty peeps. 
Today is Friday so that means it's Bellarific time!

This week's challenge was a sketch (see further below). I used Mo Manning's The Reader...

Such an amazing image by Mo! I know lots of avid book fans who'd love this stamp. Blanche is coloured with copics. Papers are by Theresa Collins and purple background one is DCWV. The sentiment with this stamp is soooo funny!

Your close up. 
This was such a fab stamp to colour. The image is BIG and Mo's attention to detail is just amazing. Love it!

Here was your sketch for this week

Here is your inspiration photo for next week. How gorgeous is this?
Looks like a wonderful afternoon tea in the garden!

Entry deets are here.

Some Odd Girl- Hey Mae!

Hi ya. Hope you're all well and getting to enjoy some crafty time.
Today's card is one I made a while ago featuring Some Odd Girl's Hey Mae...

Mae is coloured with copics. Papers are MME. Friend die and speech bubble die are both from Paper Smooches (with the heart from a PTI die). I kept the layout fairly simple- it's such a gorgeous image!

Thought I'd upload this to the SOG linky party.

Your close up. 

Thanks for coming by today! x

Bellarific Friday- my copic journal- Callista Loves To Craft

Hey everyone! 
This week's Bellarific Friday was ANYTHING BUT A CARD.
I'm so excited to show you my copic journal featuring, who else, but Callista Loves To Craft...

I've been wanting to do a copic journal forever! I've finally got round to it and here it is- ta dah! I'm actually planning on doing 2 journals: this one which has copic combos for specific things e.g. eye colour, skin colour etc. and one for pure colour combos arranged by copic colour grouping.

So for this journal I used the Xpress It Blending Journal. The front is decorated using Callista Loves To Craft and she is coloured with copics (!) I squealed when I first saw this image. I just knew I had to have it! Papers are by Pink Paislee. Lettering is done using MFT dies. I laminated the whole decorated cover (I knew it would be used loads and I didn't want it to get too dog-eared) and then stuck it to the front of the journal using some heavy duty glue.

Here's a closer look at Callista. 
Sorry, the image isn't as clear as it would normally be because it is laminated.

Here's a side view showing you how I've divided up the journal. 
The journal is divided into 12 sections (with a little room at the end for a couple more sections). These sections are: Eyes, Skin, Hair, Clothes (specifics as in jeans), Skies, Snow, Water, Foliage, Wood, Metals, Fur and Light.
Big shout out to Michelle who is THE Storage/Organizational Queen!! She used these fab sticky Durable Quick Tabs on some of her storage posts so I thought "They look fab, I'll have some of those"!!!

A massive shout out to the VERY generous Sas who has created a huge number of templates suitable for us copic lovers to experiment with. They were just what I was looking for! Here's the skin tone one.

Example of some hair colours



Anyway, hope you liked a sneaky peek at the beginnings of my copic journal.
Next week's Bellarific Challenge is a sketch (below). Deets for entering are here.

Lili of the Valley- Meant To Be

Alrighty my LOTV fans! Today is the Summer Special and lots of exciting new products are in the release including new paper collections, sentiment stamps, cross stitch kits and art pads! Phew!

Today I am showcasing some papers from the new Sunny Side Up collection released today and a sentiment from their new collection also released today.

Bellarific Friday- Big Words!

Hey Bella lovers! 
It's Bellarific Friday, it's ANYTHING GOES and it's STAMP OF THE MONTH!

So I decided to make a gift voucher holder using Samantha And Sierra Take A Selfie and our STAMP OF THE MONTH which was to use any of the BIG WORDS- I used Ridiculously Brilliant. Samantha and Sierra are coloured using copics and then fussy cut. To the sentiment I stamped some contrasting stripe patterns in alternating inks. The holder was constructed using Mama Elephant dies. Hearts are by Paper Smooches.

Close up of BIG WORDS sentiment.
These sentiments are so cool as they are designed for outside and inside the card. Fab, no?

Once again, I'm giving a shout out to Pamela Ho for using her holder design

Next week's challenge is ANYTHING BUT A CARD! Entry deets are here.
