Chi Chi Memories - Friends Forever

Hi! Flying by with a new card for Chi Chi Memories, featuring Hello Girl 2. I just love how sweet and innocent this image is. 


My papers are from Kaisercraft's Magnolia Grove paperpad and I've matted it with white and dark plum cardstock. For the sentiement heart, I covered a chipboard heart withe paper, trimmed around it with a craft knife and sanded the edges. The sentiment stickers are from the Chit Chat words by Tim Holtz. 


The flowers and leaves are from both Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts, and the lace & ribbon are from my stash. 

You can keep up to date with all the Chi Chi Memories news over on the Facebook Page. Drop in and say hello :) Also, for your chance to win some fabulously cute digis, why not play along with the CCM Challenges

Thanks for looking!

Stamping Bella - Senior-ita Dolores

Hi!! If you're here for the La-La Land Crafts New Release Showcase then click HERE or keep scrolling down :) 

Don't you just LOVE when Blogger reverts your posts back to draft all by itself??!! No? Well me either! *hmph*. I've been seeing Facebook posts about blogger acting up this week but didn't think to check my blog. Poor Senior-ita Dolores was sitting there, in draft, all sad and lonely, lol. 


I made a committment to start using all my old 12x12's after I got my craft space all sorted out. I have so many 12x12s and it's shameful to waste them. The papers I've used on this card are from the Sweet Sping collection by Fancy Pants Designs. 

I've coloured Dolores up with copic markers and cut apart the sentiment to work it into the card design. The flowers are leaf are dies from La-la Land Crafts.

Waltzingmouse Stamps - Vintage Garden Seed Packet
White & Wine Cardstock
Brick wall Embossing Folder
Distress Markers
Foam Dots or Tape
Staz-On or Archival Ink (Black)


Fold the wine cardstock in half on the long side and cut in two, to make two card bases of 105mm wide x 248mm long. You will only need one base. 

Cut a piece of white card at 100mm x 243mm and emboss with the Brick Wall folder


On watercolour card, stamp out the flower from Vintage Garden - Packet Seed with either Staz-On or Archival black ink. Colour it up with distress markers, then fussy cut it leaving a little white border all around.


Adhere the flower to the card front with 3D foam and stamp out the sentiment carefully, pressing down firmly to ensure even coverage over the embossed bricks. Then adhere the whole panel to the card base with foam tape, for extra dimension.


Hope it inspires

Chi-Chi Memories GDT - Candy Girl

Good afternoon!! Today I am sharing a Guest Designer card I made for Chi Chi Memories. Such fun, cute images and I am excited to be creating with them for the next couple of months. 

The image I've featured on my card is one of the new April Release images, called Candy Girl


Don't you just love that HAIR! I coloured her up with copic markers and then cut her out with a classic circle die -first cutting around the hair so that goes outside the circle. I matted it to a scalloped circle and adhered it to the card with 3D foam. 


You can find more Chi Chi inspiration over on the Chi Chi Memories blog and on their Facebook Page

Have a great day
