Pollyanna Pickering

Hi all as you are all aware our beloved Pollyanna Pickering passed away, I got to know Pollyanna and Anna-Louise through doing the paper craft shows with the wonderful Lynda Chapman.

Recipe:

Paper boutique 8×8 card base

Backing paper and topper from the Best of Breeds sketchbook paper kit.

CCW Lynda’s famous White and Black card.

The Daisy die and happy birthday sentiment is from the Paper boutique die set range.

Coming soon to C&C on 3/2/18

Good Afternoon all.

The wonderful Lynda Chapman will be on our screens on 3rd February with Pollyanna’s new dvd rom called Wildlife Adventure they are fab here are a collection of my samples.

These are a sheet of toppers so just made quick cards with them.

The above I printed on Lynda’s white cards then glued them onto craft card, then laminated them and made them into placemats and coasters.

I have made a box full of cards, card samples and posy box.

I hope everyone has a good day

I so love Sheena

Well I have purchased a few products of Sheena Douglas and I can say I have digressed from using them as I felt I was not good enough to use them.

I subscribe to cardmaking and papercraft magazine and what was in it, a colour clinic page which used a little bit sketchy Hummingbird stamp which I already had and the new Sheena Douglas Sparkle pens and again I had not used.

So I read the colour clinic page several times and decided that I need to get them out and start using them.

The 1st one I did was using the sparkle pens and I must admit it is my favourite. The colours used are in the magazine.

The 2nd one I did was using my Spectrum Noir pens.

The colours I used were

Flowers: PL1,PL2 and PL3

Stamen: CT3

Leaves: JG1 and JG2

Highlight: TB1

And the bird I used

CT3, AB2,PV3 and OR2

And I used clear sparkle pen on the bird and flowers.

I can honestly say that I have enjoyed doing these 2 different cards and I have vowed to use my stamp sets that I have not used as it’s such a waste. I can say this has taken my mind off my chest and sinus infection that I have had since before Xmas.

Make a Xmas card a week challenge.

I have decided to make a Christmas card a week, as I joined a Facebook group which you are challenged to make a Christmas card every week.

I needed to do this challenge as last year I brought cards from the shop which I felt disappointed with.

So as well as new blog, I am going to do the Xmas card challenge. This week I have made 2 one for last week and one for this week.

The first one I made I used cream card stock from CCW, and cut out using CCW dies which I so love, and Pollyanna Pickering paper pack which had die cuts, and the gold mirri card is a 6×6 pack from hunkdory.

Now the 2nd one is s SWALK stamp set from Crafterscompanion and I coloured it in with Spectrum noir pens. And the red gems are from an old stash.

I must admit I have lots of rubber stamps and I am going to use some this year that is my challenge.
