Let's See What the Team have made for us!
Scatty Jan What a fun time i had making my little hat for this challenge - I think they would be great for a childs Birthday party. I went for the Policeman this time from Work and Play 3 collection but you could use tons of the images and make each child a different hat. I cut the hat on my portrait and coloured the image with Graph'It Markers xx
Yvonne - Hello there!! Well this week I had a complete blast! Make something for a kids party; well it has to be the invites, and what better little character to use for birthday invites than Cowboy off of Work and Play Collection 3 which is now available to download through Polkadoodles Digiworld Downloadables or as a CD-Rom. I adore him and he comes with his own fab papers too, one of which is what I used for the backing paper. Cowboy also has his own sentiments and I took the sentiment into craft artist along with the paper and printed them out as one. I also used embellishments from Digistamp Heaven CD-Rom, for the gifts and bunting (there has to be bunting on invites, it's the law). All coloured with my Graph'It Markers which are simply fabulous and there you have a nice wee A6 Birthday Invite! Yee-hah!
Susan This week I have used a little bit of something old and new to celebrate Polkadoodles 5th Birthday. The papers and the cute little owls are from the CD Sugar Birdies or as Digi Set ,and the Drummer Boy is from the CD Work and Play 1 also available as a download.
Zoe - So this week I used 2 digi's from the Bonbon Belles collection. I used the banner and a butterfly to create this name banner. I coloured them both using my Graph It markers and also added the silver glitter shake pens to bring out details. Perfect for any party!!
Sally - This week I have chose 4 digis from the Bonbon Belles Collection. I used one of the toppers with the Pirate Ship, the Pirate, treasure chest and the rocks. I then made a stepper card. I matted the main image with some plain cardstock and the steps with the same colour. I then cut out the Pirate, treasure chest and rocks and adhered them to the card. I die cut some bunting and made some ticket sentiments. I added gold glitter pen to the gold treasure and some liquid pearls to the pearls.
Jo- Something that can be a bit off putting about making party decorations and favours is having to make lots and lots of the same thing, but digi images makes it easier to bulk make unique decorations. I have used just one element from the flowers and leaves digi bundle and just diecut and decoupaged and added gems for a pretty party cupcake topper, you could add children's names to the back for a personalised touch.
Anjie - I have used the Boys Hoot Download Bundle to create this invite, I thought the owl peeking out of the box was perfect for a surprise party. I took the topper into a graphic program (MCS) to make the sentiment. I have layered up the lid and bow on the box and the sentiment using 3D foam.
What great inspiration again this week!
