Mini Zig Zag book

I decided to make an effort to join in with the Mini Marvels FB group swap this month- they have some inspiring swaps which I often browse at and think I should have a go...
This month it was to make a zig zag book.  I have seen others make this accordion style mini book recently and thought I'd have a go.
Front- held together with twine tied onto safety pins
The background 'papers' were made using mixed media (acrylic paints and various inks) with stamps, stencils and other bits and bobs.
Inside I have used quotes from a Clearly Besotted Stamp set: 'Today a reader, tomorrow a leader', 'Think before you speak, read before you think' and 'Sleep is good, books are better'.
'The End'

Just to say

You never know when you just need to send a card to say 'hello' and I think this DigiStamp Boutique dragon with flowers image is just perfect for that message.

Female DIY

No reason why women can't do (or even enjoy) a bit of DIY- I do!  (and Mum loves painting walls etc).  Hence I thought I'd use this DigiStamp Boutique image to make a new home card in feminine colours.

Cheers!

I know this is an older DigiStamp Boutique image but I still like it.  A good one for male birthday cards I think.

Sketch Saturday #463

The Sketch Saturday challenge is sponsored by one of my favourite digistamp companies this week- Bugaboo.  One lucky winner will get 4 free images of their choice.
 I have used 'Happy Valentines to Ewe' on my card.
Hope you are inspired to play along with our challenge this week.

Girly trio

For some reason I seem to tend to make gender neutral or male type cards more than overly girly ones.  However, female ones sell well and of course I use them for friends and family birthdays etc.  Hence I pushed myself to make some girly ones.
The first two use DigiStamp Boutique images.  On this one I have, again, teamed the 'Instagram' frame from the camera set with the new Maddie Happy Days set.
On this card I did a bit of paper piecing with a Maddie Happy Days image.
And on the third card I used a Just ME digital Stamps image with Tiger papers.

Final Trio

of cards made using the free papers in the Crafternoon edition of Mollie Makes this year.  I seem to have been quite 'economical' as usual and got 4 A4 pages to stretch a fair way ;-)
 This first one uses an image from Just ME Digital Stamps.  I think he looks happy amongst the woodland papers.
 And the other two cards use DigiStamp Boutique images- a cutie baby one and an everyday card for a lady.
