Teddybo's Top Tip Thursday - Kitty's Homework = Pencils !!!

Hello again beautiful Teddybea

Just thought I would share my homework with you for Teddybo's top tips. Great tutorial from Nicole this weeks teacher ! on using primacolor pencils . I have been using all the wrong colours and this tutorial I was amazed at how these colours were so perfect ! She is a top teacher ! So nice to see tutorials with these pencils really helped me. So here she is  Teddybea_003 . I used her in Full size just need to make something gorgeous with her now !! I am so pleased at how it turned out !!


Here is a prismacolor chart which I thought helped if you want to look up the colours and match them with the numbers on the tutorial !  Just click on the  link above to take you there. I would like more pinks can anyone tell me the names of the polychromos so I can add more to my collection as prismacolor don't have many !!!

I was going to put a pic of my dog on and say that my dog ate my homework lol but them I thought if I put paper in her mouth she might start munching my crafty creations  again ! once when she passed by me with a card in her mouth I nearly died ! They now go straight in a box with a lid.  Her current chewie phase is bras, just mine ! ????.

Thank you for visiting and I shall go now and catch up with my commenting !! I follow way too many blogs lol hard to keep up so many talented crafty peeps out there !!

Hope you are all having a great weekend ! Still working loads but I just had to enter this yummy challenge by doing a part every night for a wee hour. I decided to make a wall hanging with a little box to put a folded muffin recipe tied with ribbon and some chocolate chips !!

I chose to colour with my distress inks which I have not used for ages !! I chose this Angel Tilda with heart together with the muffin stamp!! for Chocolate Heaven ! I love brown at the moment and of course chocolate . My favourite muffins are the ones with the white chocolate chips mmmmm !

I had great fun using different crafty products on the muffins. I have used crackle paint for one, flowersoft for the next and my new crafty product glamour dust ! for the third . I Love this , where have I been !!.
I have put so many pretty details on this one. From the beautiful crystal to the gorgeous Shabby Chic papers ! .
Here is my little box ....

Teddybo's Top Tips - Post it Easel Card

Hi Crafty Bloggers

I hope you are all having a super week . I have been working loads and my wee feet are sore !! Awww I think new shoes are required lol with super comfy insoles !! I had to have a go at Teddybo's Top Tips with Jill . I love making anything different so this was hard to resist ! I have been through a lucky phase this month with coming in the top 3 at LOTV and winning the Teddybo challenge !! It's great as I have been trying for a long time and it really inspires me to keep crafting & blogging !!.

When you win the challenge you get to pick ten free digi stamps ! I  have so much now to get crafty with !! Yippee . Just love this image It is called Friends ! I chose my favourite colour blue and used these gorgeous papers also from Teddybo they have so much detail in them and are great value for the price. I will have to buy more lol.

I have added some gorgeous lace and used blue dotty material for the flower and panel behind the sentiment. I used cuttlebug letters for the "Secret Notes".
What secrets do you think these friends have ?
You can see in my wisdom I made it before I bought the post it notes , my excuse is working extra lol.  Then after I took these pictures and came in after work my fella cut them for me to fit and wrote on the first one " Coz I Love you" Awww.  As a family we are always leaving notes for each other, it might encourage the teenager to communicate more !!
If you would like to have a go at making one,  check it out at . 

Hope to post again before the week is out !
Thanks for visiting !
Bye For Now Kitty ;0)

Challenges !!!

Hi Crafty Bloggers

Hope your week has gone off to a good start ! I am working 7 days this week 1 down 6 to go lol. I have made this crafty creation using this Magnolia stamp. I figured it rains so much here in Scotland that maybe this Tilda is Scottish lol !! I coloured her with prismacolor pencils and added glossy accents to the puddle ! I did not get my colouring quite right on this one !! but I shall conquer her !!

I tried my first rosette using these gorgeous papers Tim Holtz ideology Vintage Shabby . It was so funny as once you have folded the two strips you need to put a hole right through for the thread to pull it into a circle and I don't have a cropadile so I had a huge needle with blue tack underneath and a hammer lol .... I got my fella to do it !! it did work but I would not try this at home !! lol I did add the stickles myself and then hide them ! . He likes to annoy me by grabbing a stamp I am using and stamps my arm  ! Just as well the ink does wash off quite easily ;0) 

I also made the tiniest criss cross card with a tiny card and placed it on the tag with a tiny button. It is so cute !!

I also added this marble heart ! and pretty cream lace !

I would like to enter this crafty creation into the following wonderful challenges !!

Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge Blog - Stamp- Tember Blog Hop  - Anything goes

Just Magnolia & Hanglar & Stanglar Challenge - Special Monthly Challenge -  Anything goes with option of adding circles / Rosette
