Polkadoodles Not a Card

Hi everyone and welcome to another brand new Polkadoodles Challenge. All our challenges are

Anything Goes

while for an added challenge the DT's are making something other than a card. For my make I decided to create a Christmas wreath using flowers I printed from the Twiggy and Toots Festive Collection. I shaped the leaves and petals and  added some kindy glitz to the edges of each petal. I combined 3 flowers of different sizes to make a single flower, and added a pearl button embellishment as the flower centre.  I added some glitter to the leaves for some more sparkle.

I used an embroidery hoop as the base for my wreath and used my hot glue gun to glue the flowers, leaves, gold lacy embellishments and bow on the hoop. 

Here is my wreath:



Happy crafting until next time....

Polkadoodles Challenge Winter Blues

Hi everyone and welcome to another brand new Polkadoodles Challenge. All our challenges are

Anything Goes

while for an added challenge the DT's are following a theme of Christmas or Winter. This is a strange theme for me, when this week has been filled with hot Summer days in Sydney and next week they are predicting heat wave conditions.

For my DT Inspiration this week I used a pre-coloured image and papers from Octavia Frosted Winter collection. I printed my papers and cut out snowflakes using my Silhouette Cameo. I used a sentiment I found in the Silhouette store and printed it on the background paper before cutting out the top layer.

I then printed one of the pre-coloured frames from the collection to add to my card and finished the snowflakes with some pearl embellishments.


Here is my card:




Happy crafting until next time....

Polkadoodles white with a touch of colour

Hi everyone and today I am sharing some inspiration for the latest Polkadoodles Challenge. As always, our challenges are

Anything Goes


with the DT's are creating something white with a touch of colour. I chose to make an easel card.

For my touch of colour, I took inspiration from a patterned paper from the Twiggy and Toots Festive Fun collection. I loved the subtle teal snowflakes, and what better match than the lovely Beary Family image from the Octavia Frosted Winter collection. I coloured my image with Copics.

Polkadoodles - Not a Card

Hi everyone and today I am sharing some inspiration for the latest Polkadoodles Challenge. As always, our challenges are

Anything Goes


with the DT's are bringing a little Christmas spirit and creating something that isn't a card.

Today I made an ornament using one of the pre-printed tags and frames from the Winnie Winterland collection.  I combined a background paper, the joy tag and Christmas garland using my graphics program on my PC I then printed it out and used a scalloped circle die to cut out my ornament. I also cut out another scalloped circle of dark grey card to make a backing. I added a gold ribbon to use to hang it on the tree.

Polkadoodles Challenge - Christmas Tags

Hi everyone and today I am sharing some inspiration for the latest Polkadoodles Challenge. As always, our challenges are

Anything Goes


with the DT's are bringing a little Christmas cheer to our creations.

Today I made some Christmas tags using some of the Tags and Frames from the Winnie  Winterland collection.

Here are my 3 tags.


These were so quick and easy to make and I got to use up left over bits and pieces from my embellishments and ribbon stash. I'll have to make a few more before Christmas and Polkadoodles makes it so easy!!!
