Halloween Party!

I have just finished designing these halloween papers and party invitiations.
You could print out the invitations in colour.....or colour the black and white versions yourself or get the kids to colour them in before giving them to their friends!
You could make actual cards and put the invitations inside as inserts.
We have digi versions of 'Halloween Josh & Jodie' in colour and blackline to decorate the front of the cards.
I have also added sentiments with coloured backgrounds in the party invitations pack so you can cut them out with your Nesties.
There is also a blackline version of the sentiment without a background so you can print it on top of the papers if you wish.....or just onto a white background


It's Snow Much Fun!

It's Challenge 28 over at 'A Gem of a Challenge'
Mandy is the host and she has given us this fabby sketch to follow.
Pop over and take a look at all the fabulous  cards made by our lovely DT girls

Here is my take on the sketch

I have used 'Andy on Sledge'  which is one of the new Christmas releases
and also my new 'Corrugated Effect' Digi Papers
The sentiment is from our new 'Let It Snow' A7 sentiment set
Martha Stewart Icicle Punch
 Shapeabilities - Build - A - Snowflake

Corrugated Effect Papers & Halloween Jodie

My latest downloadable digi paper 'Corrugated'
I love using corrugated card but it is quite expensive and difficult to find.
So I have designed this paper pack with a corregated affect.
It comes in the usual 20 colours of our 'Colour Collection' papers with the added bonus of White, Cream and natural

Halloween Jodie

Have you seen our new Halloween Jodie digi stamp?
She is just too cute for words.
