Saturated Canary Designs.


Hi Everyone!
Well i've spent the last couple of days getting sorted and making some great new cards using some Saturated Canary digis, including the some of the new ones!

So to begin with is this one, using the new digi, Pricilla Pie.
For this card, i used my brand new K and Company 360 sheet 12x12 paper pad!!! I love their designs and there are so many to choose from, from vintage to modern.
I also used my tattered rose distress ink and my christmas distressing tool.

I added lace and roses, as well as a pearl twirl that i handstuck each one. I also added the sentiment, stamping it in the tattered rose and then black, to give it a shadow.
PROMARKERS USED:
Oatmeal, Blush and Satin - Skin
Tan, Cinnamon and Cocoa - Hair
Ivory, Pastel beige and Dusky rose - Outfit.

Next, i have used
This card is more girly modern, using pink, lavendar and orange.
I again used some K and company papers.

PROMARKERS USED:
Oatmeal, Blush and Satin - Skin
Honeycomb, Ginger and Spice - Hair
Lavendar, Lilac and Blossom - Outfit

My final Card
Its Frizzy Jinx again!
This time i used the First edition: New Leaf paper pad.


I backed each layer on kraft and added some orange roses and a large brown Magnolia Dahlia.

Promarkers used:
Honeycomb, Ginger and Spice - Hair
Pastel beige, cocoa, pear green, honeycomb and pastel blue - Outfit.

This sentiment is from some old K and company kits i found left over, it matched the colours realy well.

And my last Project is........
Ta Dah!
This is my Copica Doorhanger for your craftroom.
It uses papers from a freebie kit over at shabby princess, called express yourself which is full of notepapers, pastel colours, even pen embelishments, like what i have used on the edges.

PROMARKERS USED:
Oatmeal, Blush and Satin - skin
Tan, cinnamon and cocoa - Hair
Cornflower, buttercup, dusky rose and patel green - outfit



I cant wait to create more using these great digis, and remember to look at older posts to see more cretions using Saturated Canary images.

Why when you are..........

Looking through your embelishment boxes and bags do you always have to search right to the bottom, before you find the thing you were after???

It happens everytime! You look for something that you know is there somewhere, but its always the last thing you pick up!
Last night, we went through all our ribbon bag and our button box to see what we were in need of. The night before, i went through all the embeliie boxes and bags, and isnt it odd how you always find stuff you had forgotton about? I found loads of sentiments, which at the minute are my faviourite things. I just love different ways of saying one thing. My faviourite at the minute is:


A dream is a wish your heart makes

Isnt it sweet? Its perfect for valentines or even wedding cards.

So, unfortunatly, i have no card or project to show you today, being busy sorting after all, but i would like to let you on on my next project that will be on here soon...
It involves the lovely Sweet Crazy Love collection from Magnolia, and it will be a wall hanging project, but thats all im going to say....

I hope you'll all like it.
Just before i go, i'd like to thank all my followers and buddies on Docrafts for your kind comments, they realy cheer me up!
