Karens Doodles UK 9th challenge


It's Wednesday (already?!) so it's time for another Karen's Doodles UK challenge, and this week it's an 'anything but a card' challenge. Now I'm very much a cardmaker and I don't normally attempt much else, but I've recently treated myself to the Martha Stewart score board and so I've been hunting around the internet for ideas and templates and I'm going to try and be a bit more adventurous. So this challenge was an ideal start for me really. I'm hoping lots of you join in so I can pinch all your ideas lol :o)

Today I also have 2 different pics of my project - the one above is taken with my old camera, and the one below is with my new camera. What do you think? Anyway, onto my creation! I've made 4 post it note covers and a little gift box that holds them all - I used a template from The Cutting Cafe (I cut the templates out by hand as I don't have a fancy machine for that!). I've used this cute little 'puppy with her bone' image, available here, coloured with promarkers - her bone is ideal for popping little messages on, and I've added 'notes' to mine. The papers are Papermania capsule collection with cardstock from my stash. The flower is also Papermania, pearl and lace from stash and some little pins from Wild Orchid Crafts.


I'm also entering my set for the following challenges:

Hi Lisa
For someone who only makes cards you've did a gtreat job of this. It's great, love the little notebooks too.
I can really see the difference in your pics too, a good camera does seem to make a difference

What gorgeous creations, love the papers too! You should dabble in anything but cards more often (I should take my own advice too LOL as I am very much a card maker).

The image taken with your new camera is so much crisper!
