An Alternate Xmas....

Hi Everyone
Hope you all had a great xmas!

Today I am sharing one last xmas creation using a SLS Lines image and digital patterned papers all available at the Etsy Store! I added cute little monsters to this balloon gal - she normally has balloons but for some fun I changed the balloons to monsters and added digital xmas hats to them all (also available from the store).
You can see the full instructions on how I made this card over at the Unruly Paperarts Site - all the supplies and step by step pics are in my article!!

Hope you are all looking forward to New Years Eve and a very creative 2016!!!
Keep your eye out for new images coming in January and lots more inspiration from the DT plus our monthly challenges in 2016!!

Susan R's Inspiration...

Hi there - Susan R here with an inspiration for you...

This month I have been taking part in a blog hop oraginised by Smeared Ink
to celebrate 12 days of Creepmas.

I decided to make a concertina book full of creepy and quirky characters...

This page is from this book...first I matted the pages with black card and a strip of washi.

The theme is  Ho Ho Ho...well not quite...

The ATC uses a scrap of DP, black card and the SLSLines image 
Whimsical Pirate coloured with Promarkers
 (check out my blog next Friday for the image used in a similar way on a card).

I also used Halloween sticker bottles, sticker letters and a computer generated Ho Ho Ho.

Happy Crafting!

Christmas Graphic set 1 - Crafting Vicky

Ok so I don't know about you.... but I always ALWAYS end up being late.... not matter how far in advance I start for Christmas.  I always end up adding people to my mailing list, adding home made items WHATEVER always end up late.  And this year as I was telling my husband how I should have started earlier (I started the Christmas card in January, and the gifts in April) he said how I would still end up adding things to my list.... hmmmm.... well he is probably RIGHT.

But I'm sure that I'm not the only one right?!? RIGHT?!? please do tell me that I'm not the only one?!?  So I really really love the precolored set that are available over at SLS LINES etsy store like this fab Christmas Graphic set 1 because all the fab elements are all there for you!  They are precolored and you can just print them and go!  How fab is that?!?  This card must have taken me about 15 minutes at the most to make.  And it's still HANDMADE so that's totally awesome.

I really didn't do much for this.  I used a premade blank card, a tag in my stash some twine and just fussy cut the image and put it on there!!!!  And I'm thinking it really does look awesome!

Here's a closer look at the image that are all precolored!
isn't this cool!??  I'm sure... well I'm hoping that I'm not the only last minute person here and that this might be helpful for others :)  For more info please come to my blog here.

In the meantime I hope you have a Fabulous Holiday season!  I'm off to go and prepare supper because we are having all my in-laws over for Christmas tonight!!!  YIKES thank god this card was easy to do!!!!

Xmas Postcard...

Hi Everyone
Sharon here again sharing some more xmas inspiration - this time something a little different!!!

I hosted a "postcard" swap and the theme was "non-traditional" xmas so I just could not resist using this "Calavera Girl" available at the SLS Lines Etsy Store along with the digital clip art xmas hats!!!
The image was printed on card and I added the hat - before printing of course LOL and I then coloured the image with copic markers (hat already coloured as it is clipart from SLS Lines)!!
I cut to postcard size and added a few layers of varnish to protect it in the post, added a postcard back, wrote a xmas message to my swap partner, added a stamp and posted off - real mail art!!! It arrived safely too!
Hope this may inspire you to think outside the box for xmas!!!

Hipster Girl

Here's a gorgeous stamp from SLS Lines today. I love this winter girl. I would totally wear a hat like that if I was out and about. In fact, I have a hat similar to that which my husband purchased for me except it's a cat instead of a teddy.  This fun stamp can be bought at the SLS Lines etsy store here, Hipster Girl.
Check out the current contest, it's at the SLS Lines Challenge blog is fall theme and will run through the 12th when the new challenge will begin.

Cheers, Holley

Aargh Humbug!!!!!!!!

Hello Fans!
Today I am sharing some super quick and easy Xmas Cards - you know Xmas is coming and I bet some of you are still not ready (truth be known neither am I - too busy working!!)

These cards are a bit of fun and use digi monster stamps and digital papers and clip art - ALL available at the store!
Here's some links for you to the items I have used:
AND these monsters are also available as a clipart set if you want some pre-coloured:
And the link for the little Xmas Hats & Digital papers:
No excuses to not be creating LOL!
I don't normally do CAS style - I always want to add things and then it's not really CAS but I think the little scary monsters with their added xmas hats are really enough for these cards!!
Remember to play along in our current challenge too - we always love to be inspired by you as well!
Happy creating for xmas.......

Au La Naturale......

Hi Everyone

Today for my inspiration post I am sharing a pocket letter I made for an "Aussie" Swap Group I am in - each month we have a theme and we get a partner and swap our pocket letters! This month the theme was "a la natural" so I wanted something that looked natural - colourwise and content so I couldn't resist the "Elf Girl" image and "Kraft Leaves and Flowers" Digital items available from the SLS Lines Etsy Store - all a perfect match for the "look" I wanted to achieve!
I used natural colours along with some soft natural greens, added matching washi tape to the spine with some twine. Hessian, skeleton leaves, muslin cloth, leaves and butterflies decorated the ATC's in the pockets. I coloured the digi Elf Girl with Copic markers, fussy cut her and adhered her to the front of the pockets.
Close ups of each row of pockets.
Top pockets:
Middle pockets:
Bottom pockets:

Here's the final creation with all the ATC's inside the pockets and also a pic of the goodies I put in the backs of each pocket for my partner!

Just love making pocket letters and sending them off and plenty of amazing images and digi clipart and papers at the store to play with!!
Happy Crafting!
Sharon :)
