Polkadoodles Challenge - Use more than 2 papers

Hi everyone and today I am sharing some inspiration for the current Polkadoodles Challenge. As always, our challenges are

Anything Goes


but this time the DT's are using more than 2 papers in our creations.



For my make today I couldn't go past the Helga collection which is filled with beautiful digital papers. I chose three coordinating papers from the collection, cut out some unusual shapes using my Cameo and layered them onto a base card. 

I decided to use the pre-coloured Helga Hippo Peek-a-boo on the front of my card. I then decorated the card with some of the butterfly embellies, flower images, banner and a sentiment from the collection. 


Here is my card:

Colour Crazy Challenge - May

Welcome to another Colour Crazy Challenge. All our challenges are Anything Goes and we'd love you to join us.

This week's challenge is sponsored by Scrap N' Dipity and I used Wind in my Hair Fairy image. I found her easy to colour, but after I finished realised that the large leaves I coloured, were actually her wings. Oh well never mind, I still am happy with my card..

Here is my card:



I printed my image on Copic Xpress-it cardstock using my Canon Pixma inkjet printer. The colours I used are: E0000, E000, E00, E11, E13, R20, E57, E55, E53, E51, YG67, YG63, YG03, YG17, YG25, RV00, RV04, RV06, RV09, YR38, YR35, YR21.

Hi everyone and today I am sharing some inspiration for the brand new Polkadoodles Challenge. As always, our challenges are

I printed my design sheet and cut out the images and layered it up on one of the papers from the collection. Then I added one of the Word Art elements. Such a lovely quick way to make a fabulous card, perfect for those days you are in a hurry and still want a personal touch to your card.

Polkadoodles Challenge–Anything but a Square Card


Hi everyone, time for me to share some inspiration for the current Polkadoodles Challenge. All our challenges are

Anything Goes

while for an added challenge the DT's are creating anything but a Square card.
For my DT inspiration this week I have made a delightful Easter basket featuring Helga Sitting Pretty.


I made the basket using a 12x12 sheet of cardstock and then punched strips from another 12x12 sheet to make the handle and side decorations.




Now all that's left to do is to hide the chocolates ready for the hunt on Sunday morning!! Happy Easter everyone, hope you all get a chance to relax and enjoy the break.

Polkadoodles Challenge - Use a design sheet


Hi everyone and today I am sharing some inspiration for the current  Polkadoodles Challenge. All our challenges are

Anything Goes

while for an added challenge the DT's are using one of the fabulous Polkadoodles Design sheets. 

For my DT Inspiraton this week I used Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Design Sheet 4.

I printed the design sheet and cut out the images using my Silhouette Cameo. The design sheets make it so quick and easy to make a coordinated card.

Here is my card:


I used a strip from one of the luscious papers from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Paper Heaven 8 Bundle and then added some extra flowers from the Design Sheet to make it look like the strip is behind the flowers from the backing layer. I also added a flower from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Blooms Bundle behind the sentiment, and topped it off with a butterfly from the Winnie Sugar Sprinkles Embellies Bundle.

Why don't you try using a Design Sheet next time you need a quick coordinated card. I'd love to see your creations in our challenges.
