Crafting When We Can Challenges 142 - One for the Girls

Over at CWWCC we have a new sponsor.

Our Sponsor the this challenge is a new sponsor Jackie of

Theme:  One for the Girls

We were generously given images to work with and I chose Evath.  I coloured her using Spectum Noir pens and the paper was from a 250gsm paper pad from B & M.  I think it was a bargain at £2.99 for 24 double sided card and I really like all the designs.  The shapes were cut on the SnC and I designed the flourish myself.  Not perfect but my own.  Nuvo glitter drops in the centre of the flowers and ribbon from chocolate box.  My MIL saves ribbons for me, she also asks her friends to save them for her and I'm sure I'm not the only person who uses the annoying ribbons in clothes that are supposed to hold the t-shirt on the hanger.  That's what flocked covered hangers are for.  The gold card is also from B & M 1.99 for 20 and it cuts like a dream.

Hop over to the Challenge and show us your Girly projects.

Crafting When We Can Challenges 141 - Animals

For our challenge over at CWWCC we have a theme of Animals and the prize is a selection of ribbons.  We have not sponsor so we went freestyle.  As people who read this blog know I love my Scan n Cut so my project was completely made using this machine.

I converted an image from a Daisytrail digi kit called Country ways.  CraftArtist 2 has the ability to convert files to .svg.  It took me a while to figure it out but now it's my go to program to convert picture to .svg.

The papers I used were from a 12 x 12 scrapbook pad from The Range called Mix & Match Colour Basics at £2.99 it fell into my basket.  It took a while to find it as it wasn't with the big brand scrap pads.  The yellow and orange are from a pack of Papermania card i've had for years.  Crystals from Poundland.  Ribbon from an Easter chocolate box.

Hop over to CWWCC and show us your Animal projects.
