Guest Designer card for Use it Tuesday


 Wahoo I am a Guest Designer for Use it Tuesday
The idea behind this awesome challenge is to use at least two of your hoarded items....
pfft, please, way to easy.!!
I have been holding on to the origami shirt since forever, and the dress is a pre made die cut I bought ages ago on you do...
I just could never marry the colours and never really knew what to do with them and then one day had an Epiphany...and this is the result. A his and hers congratulations card (which I have done many more in different colour combos) that could be used for engagement, wedding, anything really....I also used some scrap pieces from my stash for the background....(my stash seams to be growing not decreasing, why is that???) just added some bling as well ( I had to), and some gro grain ribbon, 
and there you have it.
Hope you like it.
Make sure you visit Use it Tuesday and take part in their challenge, a really great blog, and a big thank you for allowing me to be your Guest Designer for this challenge..
Blessings Hilde

DT Card for Challenge with Dragonflies # 11: Use at least 5 different scraps

Using sponsor Meljens image : little birdsong

Hi guys, here we are already up to challenge # 11, I still feels like our challenge blog is sort of  newish Crafting with Dragonflies,  I guess not really, lol...

Over at the Dragonflies we have a challenge every two weeks and we alternate between a card challenge and a project.

This fortnight we are asking you to create a card with your
leftover paper scraps, at least 5 different ones....

Here is a list of my scraps, the birdcage, there are 4 background scrap pieces, one with a butterfly. The scalloped circle punch and the I have 8,
Our generous sponsor is Meljens and this cute little bird is singing his heart out, just happy he is not in the cage....I coloured him with pro markers and sponged the edges with some pale blue ink....and as you can see I used lots of liquid pearls for embellishing.... (that stuff is very addictive, when does one stop, I couldn't find that in the instructions......?)
Blessings Hilde
Now over to you....

DT Card for the Squirrel and the Fox # 52 : It's raining men

Hi everyone, hope you are all well and ready to play with us over at the Squirrel and the Fox in our next challenge. The theme this fortnight is:

It's raining men

Our generous sponsor this week is Kenny K. This handsome, cool as ice young man, looks very confident in his grey silk suit and purple shirt...I love purple, and thought this still looked ok without being too feminine.. All the papers are from my stash and I always use promarkers for my colouring, I kept this card in CAS style, as I find this seems to suit male card much better.....even though I am tempted to shouss it up some more...(hence my choice of the purple)

Card with the cutest Kangaroo for challenges

Hi all, I set myself a bit of a challenge,  I have been trying to steer clear of my usual card making and that means filling the card  up with flowers and embellies galore, this is a more CAS style I think..I am trying out different styles to keep myslelf from constantly defaulting back to the same old, same old...I get too comfortable with that...
I used some new papers I bought here in Australia, Sydney from Big W, and they were printed on really nice textured paper...8 x 8 stack from Merci Collections......Big W had a great range of stacks, and will definately go back for some more, when I have the money to do so...
I always use pro markers for my colouring, 3d butterfly is made up of  a MS punch and a butterfly I had, made from the same material those flowers are made from, lots of glitz and some bling.....
I really like the geometrical looking background.....and who has ever seen a kangaroo with fairy wings? I just love cool, the image is from ADFD ( a day for daisies) they have the most wonderful images.

and grab this guy whilst he is still available for free.
I used papers from my stash, I always use pro markers for my colouring, I sponged the edges of the image and the sentiment. Blessings Hilde

DT Creation for Crafting with Dragonflies # 10 : Create a Mini Album

Hi everyone,hope you had a wonderful weekend and a great start to the week, half way through already again......
Over at Crafting with Dragonflies we are making Mini Albums, well I realise this might frighten some of you, but you do have 2 weeks to create one and we did give you a heads up last time that this was can make a little one folded mini album out of one 12 x 12 scrap book page or go all out like I did...I figured I might as well make a paper bag album and go overboard and this will be a Christmas gift for a special friend I have in mind...Hope you like it...I had fun creating it...
I bought a pre folded, stitched paperbag album with 5 holes, 3 paper bags were used for this album, which gives me 8 pages to use as, not counting front and back...
I don't really have a link for you as I made this one up as I went along, it's just stuff I have picked up along the way, not really a copy of anyone's.

One of our sponsors Eureka, were very generous and gave us some extra images when they heard we were making mini albums.....thanks so much, really loved these... I used 4 different images to complete this album.
A big Thankyou to Di's Digis that has very generously offered our second winner a fantastic prize...

I always use promarkers for my colouring, and the papers, ribbons etc. are all from my stash....
for the dangle at the top I used an old necklace of mine and some charms...the butterfly is a die from Quickutz, love it and I use it often..., the butterfly is a MS punch and mini dragonflies is a punch from no brand name, cheapy I bought the other apologies for using lots of bling and glitter...

 This is the first page as you open it, with a little pocket on the left and the image on the right i made into a little pocket to slip a tag or photo under
 Next page, and this time the pocket is the the right, I used the dragonfly image and some dies to frame it.
 Next page I use the image to make another pocket again, coloured with promarkers and lots of glitz
 Last page, great area for lots of photos, and another pocket
This is the back of the book and again I finished it off with that gorgeous butterfly die...and a MS heart border punch.

I went over board with the tags, 6 large tags that fit into the bag pockets and then lots of little ones 
Hope you like it, I enjoyed making it, make sure you hop on over to the other Design Team Members to you can check out their awesome mini albums, now go and have some fun....
Blessings Hilde
