Hi everyone, I'm here with today's make for the Polkadoodles Sudio 12 blog post. I hope you are all looking forward to Christmas.  I have only just started shopping myself which is very late, but there's not much I can do about it now is there lol.  Anyway getting back on track I've made a real cute little wall plaque/tray/hanger/thingy! not really sure what to call it if I'm honest.  This was a little wooden box that had wooden embellishments in it, I've had it knocking round the work room for a couple of years now.  I always knew I would do something with it and inspiration hit yesterday.

I used a few different stamps from the studio 12 and Susan Weckesser studio 12 stamps, shrink plastic and Sakura Stardust and Wink of Stella pens.  I painted the box with mushroom and light blue acrylic paint then I used scraps of backing papers from the Studio 12 Collection 1 CD in each compartment.  I added a  few odds and ends from my stash to finish it off.

 I took this pic with it by a ruler so you cab see just how small and cute the shrunk elements are.  Each compartment is just a smidge over 3cms so that shows the scale for you.
Here are the remaining Creative Expressions TV samples from my last show.  The Creative Expressions DT have now been given these Henna stamps and are making some fabulous creations with them, you can check them out of the Creative Expressions Facebook page and on the team Blog.

If I don't get back before Christmas I hope you all have a wonderful time.

Hello all, at last i'm here with another post, I just never seem to get the time to blog on a regular basis, but I do get here eventually.

There is some fantastic inspirational makes over on the Polka Doodles blog.  Did you know there are now two challenges a week? the normal Friday challenge and now digi chooseday as well. Why not try entering, someone has to win and you never know, it may just be you.

I know these are rather late but here are some of the pics from the last Creative Expressions Create and Craft show.  I will post the rest on my following posts.  These Henna stamps really are lovely to use, and you can do so much with them. I'm sorry I cant put all the info down on the products used but I'm really running behind so time is not with me.  Everything used are Creative Expressions products though.  If you see something you'd like to know about them leave me a message and i will answer for you.
 Fun sprung utee hearts.
 I love this canvas, and i love how the micro beads in the utee look like bubbles

Hi everyone, where does the time go? I'll be on Create and Craft TV Monday 11th Nov at 9am and 4pm.  I have some lovely new Creative expressions stamps, masks, texture paste, gilding flakes and much more so please join me.

Have you seen the Dottie Hearts design gifts yet? just the perfect personalised high quality Christmas gift ideas.  Gorgeous designs all created by Nikky Hall, no stock pictures here they are original NH images and while some items are printed some are hand pained especially for you exactly to your requirements, what more could you want.  You can find them here

It was my partners birthday last week and I wanted to make him a card that wasn't too slushy but said what I thought of him (only good things).  I looked through my rather large stamp collection but nothing jumped out at me till I got to the Polkadoodles Studio 12 stamps, and there I found the perfect stamps for what I wanted.  The circle and heart stamps are firm favourites of mine and the sentiment was just perfect because he is incredible (well most of the time lol).  I also used 2 of the faux stitching stamps and the distressed dogs-tooth stamp which are very useful stamps indeedy.  Red, black and white inkpads with some white embossing powder and kraft card and voila, a special card is created.  As this card was made with Studio 12 stamps it is also my project for the Polkadoodles and Studio 12 blog.
Nicky has been working really hard and filled the Polkadoodles shop with loads of gorgeous new goodies, so many in fact that I cant possibly mention them all or I'll be here all night.  Check out the digi section as there are new digi stamps being added daily, don't worry if you are not a digi fan though as there is plenty fantastic stash such as stamps, stencils/masks, alterable objects, metallic Pan Pastels and so much more.  If you are quick you may even catch one of her special offers.

And at last here are the samples from my last Create and Craft show for Creative Expressions.
