Au La Naturale......

Hi Everyone

Today for my inspiration post I am sharing a pocket letter I made for an "Aussie" Swap Group I am in - each month we have a theme and we get a partner and swap our pocket letters! This month the theme was "a la natural" so I wanted something that looked natural - colourwise and content so I couldn't resist the "Elf Girl" image and "Kraft Leaves and Flowers" Digital items available from the SLS Lines Etsy Store - all a perfect match for the "look" I wanted to achieve!
I used natural colours along with some soft natural greens, added matching washi tape to the spine with some twine. Hessian, skeleton leaves, muslin cloth, leaves and butterflies decorated the ATC's in the pockets. I coloured the digi Elf Girl with Copic markers, fussy cut her and adhered her to the front of the pockets.
Close ups of each row of pockets.
Top pockets:
Middle pockets:
Bottom pockets:

Here's the final creation with all the ATC's inside the pockets and also a pic of the goodies I put in the backs of each pocket for my partner!

Just love making pocket letters and sending them off and plenty of amazing images and digi clipart and papers at the store to play with!!
Happy Crafting!

November Inspiration from Susan R

Hi! Susan R here

Here is my inspiration post for you this month using an SLSLines image.

This time I used Sugar Plum Fairy coloured with Promarkers.

Just a simple easel card - starting with a white card blank. The image was placed on a separate piece of white card matted with red.


The base and easel were matted with Christmas paper from my stash...

Don't forget the 'Autumn/Fall is in the Air' Challenge...


Happy Crafting!

Cat - Crafting Vicky

I totally ADORE doing mix media.  And when I do that I try to reuse my paint as much as possible.  So while making something I will use the left over on some little index cards.  And 1st thing I know I have some very cute little backgrounds.  This is what I decided I wanted to use today to share with you some inspiration!

I know that there are lots of Cat fans everywhere and I don't know if you know but SLS Lines has the cutest little cat set ever Cat set.
Digital Stamp cute cats cat digistamp, instant download, kitty pussy cat
I really wanted to use one of those cutie pie on my make and here it is.

Isn't he cute?!?  He was colored using my copics and I used my sharpie fine liner to add some whiskers.

You can find the details on how I made this on my blog.

Hope you have liked my inspiration for you go and check out the fabulous digis in the store.

Say Cheese!

Hello SLS Lines Fans!!
Say Cheese!!!

Today I am sharing a quick birthday card I made for my daughter's boyfriend a few weeks ago - couldn't resist having some fun and using this funny guy again and it's always good to get some inspiration to make a male appropriate card!!
You can find this cheesy "goth" guy in the Store here. He's also part of this colouring book with lots of other cool "goth" images - too good to resist and think how many co-ordinating cards you can make with all the images!!!!!

Background patterned papers are from a little 6 x 6 pad I have had for ages "Prima Engraver Collection" - I love the neutral colours and the designs. Goth boy coloured with pastel pencils and fussy cut. I cut the wording and camera on my Silhouette. A fun card!
Remember we always have a challenge running with the opportunity to win some images so check it out here at the blog along with the other amazing DT creations!!

Kate's Autumn Inspiration

Hi Bloggers

I'm sharing my SLSLines Inspiration make with you today

I decided I wanted a challenge and chose to use 'Air Fairy with Long Flowing Hair' and coloured her with ProMarkers and added clear Wink of Stella Glitter pen to her necklace & the edges of the rolled roses. I used gems, pearls, Stickles & Liquid Pearls for the bubbles. The papers I used are from the fab 'Leaves & Florals Brown Kraft Style' paper pack and I also used them to make the rolled roses which have pale green gems in the centre

I hope you like my card as much as I liked colouring all that amazing hair :)

Holley's Handsome Pirate

Here's a great image from SLS Lines, this Pirate is one handsome man.  I used one of the newest card die cut sets from Sizzix to create this foldout card.  Here's the front of the card which I embellished with this Tattered Lace die cut and pirate flag charm.

Inside the card stands up and you can see the Handsome Pirate from SLS Lines.  How fun is that?  SLS Lines has several other great pirate images to go with this set as well as a paper collection that matches perfectly.  Here I added some Bling which also seemed so appropriate for the topic.

Thanks so much for dropping by.  Check out the latest challenge over on the SLS Lines blog and keep and eye out for the new challenge, which will begin on Oct 12th!

Cheers, Holley
