Totally Gorjuss DT - Challenge

This weeks challenge is "anything but a card"

As Christmas is creeping up on us we want to see your gift ideas.

I intended doing a Candle but it went wrong and I only had one. So we have got some notebooks instead which I have made for the school Christmas Fair next week.

Notebooks from Poundshop covered with odds of backing papers, Gorjuss Girls coloured with Promarkers and cut out and a few embellishments to finnish.

This week's Totally Gorjuss Challenge

I was a bit sneaky in that I used my DT card to enter a challenge, this week's theme is Christmas. I wanted to do something a bit different so used Acetate, if you scroll down you will find my DT card which I used for the Crafty Cardmakers challenge.

Come on over and join us at http://totallygorjuss.blogspot.com

Oh and by the way you not limited to using just Gorjuss Girls anymore. You can use any cute girly image, but if you do use a GG you will get two entries into the prize draw.

This is for my Son`s 5th birthday next week.

8 x 8 card from Craftwork cards

Spotty paper is Basic Grey and the pirate paper from Equilter with some American Crafts textured cardstock.

Dustin Pike digi stamps which a very dear friend merged together for me, because I am not clever enough to do it! Coloured with Promarkers.

Sentiment made on word and some Candy dots.

Crafty Cardmakers - Clear as Day Challenge

I've not entered a challenge for ages and saw this idea in a magazine. I never think to use acetate as a card blank and when I saw this challenge decided now was the time to have a go.

First of all apologies for the pictures as it not the easiest thing to photograph, the scanned one has a piece of black card underneath it.

Anyway back to the card.

Cut down an A4 piece of acetate and scored to make a gatefold card, then stamped it all over with snowflakes in white Stazon (why do they only sell the pad and refill set - anyone know?). Cut some nestie labels, a border of Papermania background and some coredinations cardstock and stuck down. The labels on the back hide all the sticky tape.

Lastly coloured my Little Star Gorjuss Girl with Promarkers and added some Glamour Dust, cut her out and stuck her

Pretty Giraffe

This is for my favourite Auntie, she used to live in Kenya and loves giraffes and elephants. I borrowed the stamp off a friend at Craft Club, it is the prettiest giraffe I`ve seen, love those eyes.

8 x 8 card from Craftwork Cards

It's a Rubber Cottage stamp but came from Topaz, inked it with Stampin Up Chocolate Brown ink and coloured with Prisma`s.

Papers are Basic Grey, matted on American Crafts Cardstock with a ribbon, sentiment and flower.

Really pleased with this one.

Picked this Calendar up in Poundland, the top half is a memo board which I decided to decorate.

Used DCWV papers inked the edges, flowers and vines cut with Sizzix die and Miss Anya coloured with Prisma's.

Think it will be a trip back to the poundshop and everyone will be getting calendars and candles for Christmas, lol.

Morning all,

Not been on for a while, don't know where the days are going. Been busy the last few days I was at a craft meet in Warrington all day on Sunday which was great. Spent Tuesday in the hospital with Son having five teeth taken out.

Then I had my first craft club on Tuesday evening. I offered to take over our local group as the lady running it was stepping down, my friend is helping me along with another lady who was already on the committee. We decided to do more make and takes and everyone will now have to bring their own equipment and materials.

I have now got to come up with plenty of projects! We started off with a Slider card, it was a little disorganised but I think everyone enjoyed it and we had five new ladies.

I've not got a card to show you as I was too busy sorting everyone else out.

These are the ones I made at Warrington Crafty Devils, the monkey was a Challenge using a template, we were all given a different one. I don't think anyone was impressed but the results were really good.

Finally a Good Luck card ordered by a friend

I've got a DT and two challenge cards to do, not to mention cleaning up so I better get a move on.

Here's mine

I used Papermania spotty paper, the black polka dot paper is Craftwork Cards and a few more bits of card from stash to mat and layer. The sentiment is by Cuddly Buddly.

I chose one of my favourite Gorjuss Girls "Miss Attitude" coloured with Promarkers and masked her to add the Inkadinkadoo Guitar. I picked the "Rockstar" bling up at Craft Creations for the bargain price of 69p and the Guitar Charm from The Works.
