Love from Andrea ...

Thank you for visiting my new blog. I hope you enjoy my cards. I just love to make pretty things and if I'm not crafting or shopping for crafting supplies (it's a hobby in itself!) then I'm plotting and planning and thinking about what I want to make next!

Polkadoodles: Girly Card ...


There is a lot of pinkness in this girly card made for the current Digichoosday challenge. Using papers from Work and Play 9 Love and Kisses and the cute Earlie Hedgehog Dandelion coloured digital stamp both from Polkadoodles


Entering Challenges:

Polkadoodles: Green ...


There is a new challenge over at the DigiChoosday blog - lots of green.
I've used a Winnie image and papers from the Winnie Fruit Punch download collection from Polkadoodles to make my card and added green ribbon, green pins, green polka dot button and green butterfly beads ... I think all that green means I've definitely fulfilled the challenge!

We're all loved up at the Polkadoodles DigiChoosday blog and for my card this week I've used the sweet little Earlie Hedgehog Dandelion Fuzzypuffs COLOURED digi stamp and papers from Winnie Celebrations 3 Paper packs 1 and 2. Some doodled edges, corner rounder punch and bits and bobs of embellishments from The Ribbon Girl finished it off nicely

Polkadoodles: Fancy Fold ...


There is a new challenge over at The Digi Choosday challenge blog today, anything goes as usual but the DT were challenged to make a 'fancy fold'. My fancy folds still have straight edges and doodling and aren't too fancy but ... I've designed a step by step tutorial to share more information about how I made my project!



I've made a Halloween Treat Pocket all ready for Trick or Treat night ...





Products used:


Papers and pre-coloured image from WinnieWednesday download collection by Polkadoodles



Polkadoodles: Forgotten Techniques ...


There is a new challenge over at the Polkadoodles Challenge Blog... it's always 'anything goes' but the DT were challenged to use a forgotten technique and I just can't turn down the opportunity to make another Christmas card so my project is a Christmas card but my forgotten technique is the doodled border around the edge of the card. My cards always used to have this kind of doodling on them and I'd forgotten how it can finish off a card and bring it all together within the focal point

I used a precoloured image, papers and sentiment tag from Work & Play 5 Festive Hollybobs (Polkadoodles) and added my favourite red saddlestitch ribbon, polka dot button, pins and stickles all from The Ribbon Girl. I also used corrugated kraft card and dimensional Snowpaste to add to the festive feeling
