Halloween Time at All That Scraps

It is Halloween release time at All That Scraps! Tomorrow a bunch of gorgeous digi images are being released including this oh so cute Goth Girl along with the skull, bat and spider as accessories!

She was just so much fun to colour! Now it is a little bit tricky to see, but the background spider, bat and word art is actually on acetate. I wanted it to look like the bat and spider are hanging in mid-air. It is hard to see because I had to put a white background behind in order to photograph it!

Anyhow, what would Halloween be without a little treat....right!?!

Hop on over the All That Scraps Blog to have a look at the other beautiful creations by the DT... and remember these images will be released TOMORROW!

Happy Colouring .... Mandi

Release Day at All That Scraps!

Today is release day at All That Scraps! The cute CC Designs Back to school digi stamps are now available in the All That Scraps store.

I had such fun putting this card together....

Emma and the Apple are printed onto X-Press It Blending Card and then coloured with my Copics. The wall has been hand drawn and coloured!

I spent some time constructing Emma's little schoolbag. Here is a close-up!

....and there is even has an extra special surprise inside Emma's school bag! Have a look!

Back to School Time at ATS

It's back to school time at All That Scraps! Christine has designed these gorgeous Back to School Digi Stamps. The set consists of Sugarplum Emma's and 2 matching background images.

I tried my hand at creating a diagonal double pocket card, which I have never done before. I think it worked quite nicely as the pockets provide the perfect "home" for the two bookmarks that I have created using the digi images.

For the bookmarks I used Emma with Pencil and the Pencil and Apple Images. I used X-Press It Blending Card, my Copics to colour and lots of Spica and KindiGlitz to finish off with some shimmer!

The Back to School digi's will be released on August 20th at All That Scraps.
Check out the other beautiful creations from the Digi DT Team here.
Check Back here tomorrow for another Back to School Project!

Recipe Friday at Anya Ink

This Weeks Challenge at Anya Ink is a recipe Challenge!

The recipe is 1 Bow, 2 Buttons 3 Flowers. This is what I came up with. I sometimes add a little bit of creative license to my recipes and for design sake and balance, I added an extra button....sorry!

I just loved the idea of creating a flowerpot card!

The really cute thing about this card is that the insert slides in and out!

....and I really think "little girls are heavens flowers!"

This Challenge is being sponsored by Kellie from 'Tickled Pink'

Have a look at the rest of the gorgeous creations that the talented DT have come up with at Anya Ink.

Join the challenge and show us what you create!
