Shabby Chic at Polkadoodles- When is a toilet roll not a toilet roll

Happy Friday morning are you ready for the show with Nikky from Polkadoodles at Create and Craft she is on with the fab Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor Pencils. I have my seat reseved  hoping to get some tips and I believe they will be having a fab set on if you are starting out.
Anyway lets get back to the Shabby Chic and it is Team A's turn at Polkadoodles turn to share their inspiration on the challenge blog today.
The theme is Shabby Chic dont run for the hills you will get lost
Be warned I have a few pictures to share so grab a cuppa and a biscuit.
Well for my Shabby Chic Project which I had to look up the definition for. I have done a little mini album/Tag book.
 I idea is that you write on the tags or add little pictures if you want. I havent used a image but used papers and elements for each of the pages from 2 cds- Rose Budd collection  available here and one of my favorites Twiggy & Toots available Here. 
Ok pictures start here
 !st and 2nd page
 3rd & 4th Page
 %th & 6th Page

 Back Page

I have added Lace and Ribbons and gems from my stash. 
The Pages Bases have actually been made from Toilet Rolls. I ran these through my big shot to crease and then covered with papers. Cut some tags to slide in.
I do hope you like it as much as I have enjoyed making. We would love for you to come and join us in the challenge and share your Shabby Chic I am sure it wont be Shabby at all.
Thank you for popping by and hope the picture show wasnt too long. Now go checkout the rest of the amazing team they have really rocked this challenge.

Mrs Ginger Bread- Frosted Winter- Create & Craft Sample

Good morning and Happy Monday.
I dont have a card scheduled to be posted today so thought I would share another of the Octivia Frosted Winter samples i did for Polkadoodles Create &Craft show last week.
This time I am sharing a shape card which I made from one of the embellishments
All the elements can be found on the CD here
I copied th file into word and enlarged then printed onto Craft card. I cut 2 of these and made a hinge for the top with a circle die joining the 2 shapes. I shaded the Kraft card with my Promarkers and used a white pen for the mouth etc. I printed some of the spotted paper from the CD and cut to shape adding some narrow lace. Tied a few tiny bows for the hair and also the dress. Cut one of my sentiment dies to finish. This was mainly made to show that an embellishment can be enlarged and made into a card. There are many of these on the CD that would make fab card templetes.
Well I hope you like and maybe next time I will do a Mr Ginger Bread Man. Not sure if he should be suited or dressed casual. I do think she is in her best dress though.
Thanks for popping by
