Fabulous Friday - Helga Hippo Gift Box

Well hello there!  Happy Friday everyone :-)

All Polkadoodles challenges are now Anything Goes so why not come along and enter.

My make for this week is a card gift box, using this tutorial on my blog HERE.

I have used the delightful Polkadoodles Helga Hippo collection, and one of the wonderful Design Sheets from the collection and some of the fabulous papers to cover the box.


I inked all the edges of all the layers and added a little bow to the umbrella.


I have added a little depth to the front by popping the embellishments on some foam tape.


All these elements on the card and the stopper are in Design Sheet 2-02 in the collection, or you can also buy it as part of the Duo of Design Sheets #7.


I am in the process of making six 4" by 4" cards and envelopes to go inside the gift box.

I would like to enter this gift box in the following challenges.

Fabulous Friday - Queen of Hearts

It's Friday - yay!

Hope you are all having a great day and looking forward to the weekend.

Our challenges over at Polkadoodles are now, always, Anything Goes.  So why not pop along and enter you could win $10 to spend in the Polkadoodles download store.

I have used the wonderful Winnie in Wonderland Collection for my hubby's Valentines card. Couldn't resist adding the Eat Me sentiment :-)


All the pieces for this card can be found on Design Sheet 7 in the collection.  You can buy just the Design Sheet on it's own too :-)


For the bottom layer of the front and the inside of the card, I pulled out two papers from the collection that had already been printed from another project.  I couldn't resist using the fabulous Polkadoodles Elegant Nesting die (this is the middle size of three in the set).  And two hearts left over from the Design sheet.


As always, all the edges of all the layers have been inked. 


I add some foam tape to some of the layers to add a little dimension to the card.


I am entering this card in the following challenges.

'Tis Tuesday - Tutorial (Video) - Using Polkadoodles Collections and Silhouette Design Studio

Hi everyone.  Hope you are all well and busy crafting bees :-)

So, I finally got around to doing something that I have been meaning to do for ages!

I have wanted to do some video tutorials combining the Polkadoodles Collections, how I create and how I use Silhouette Design Studio and the Cameo for my crafting.

My first recording has gone live!  Using the Polkadoodles Design Sheets in Silhouette Design Studio.


You can view it on Youtube if you prefer, or you can watch it here on my blog :-)

I used Winnie Sugar Sprinkle Design Sheet 2 and Winnie in Wonderland Design Sheet 3 in the tutorial.

The other day I downloaded OBS Studio (Open Broadcaster Software) and had a little play.  It is really easy to use and there are a few tutorials out there to get the initial set up done.  I only want to use it for recording my screen in Silhouette Design Studio, so there was nothing to in depth about it :-)

I hope that you understand and if there are any questions, please leave them in the comment section, or you can email me (if you click on View my Profile there is a link on the left). Also, if there is something you would like me to do a tutorial about let me know :-)

I will also try and do some tutorials of how I design and create my cards using Silhouette Design Studio - from start to finish :-)

Hope that you enjoyed the first tutorial.  Please excuse the Welsh accent - it really stands out on recordings LOL!

You can pop along to our Polkadoodles Digi Choosday blog and enter our weekly challenges, there might even be a discount code (valid today only) there for you to buy some digi's :-)

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

Happy crafting.
