Meet Gorgeous - Pollycraft Freebie!

Wow, the end of the week already, how did that happen?? I would like you to meet someone special:

This is GORGEOUS isn't he just?? I made this card for my Hubby for our Anniversary this week. I used an acetate blank and added Sassafras "Monstrosity" papers. Gorgeous (es) are coloured with promarkers. What would you call a group of Gorgeous I wonder?? The sentiment is from my talented Pollycraft teamie Marit.

Gorgeous is available from Pollycraft.

Wedding Card

Good afternoon all - we are having glorious weather at the minute, hooray!! We've just came back from a 1st Birthday Party so we are suffering from a sugar high!!

Got a little wedding card to show you, it is very similar to the bottle tag I made for a CES challenge a few weeks ago. It is always handy to have a wedding card made up!

Promarker Storage

My favourite colouring medium is ProMarkers but it always annoyed me when I had to hunt around for the colours that I wanted! I saw this idea in a magazine and decided to give it a try! It's fab, easy to use but sadly not too portable!!

It's basically a DVD storage box from Ikea and DVD boxes without covers. In Microsoft Word I created boxes which I then named with the colours and a space to colour it in. I put the colours into order using one of the colour charts you get with the packets of ProMarkers - this makes it really easy to work out which ones to blend together! I then put the little tables along the spine of the DVD box. I put a coloured adhesive dot at the end of each pen to make it really easy to find the colour needed.
