Launch of Paper Boutique 3

Today saw the launch of the new Polkadoodles CD on Create and Craft TV here in the UK. This one is Paper Boutique 3 - full of the most gorgeous templates and papers. For those of you who are new to digi CD's, they are really easy to use, all you need is a computer and a printer. You can print the templates out in black and white to colour with your promarkers or copics or whatever, or print them out already coloured which makes short work of producing the most fabulous cards.
I am a bit of a Westie fan - I love these little white dogs, we used to own a dearly loved Westie ourselves. Here I just made up the dog and popped her onto a simple card...........

the Scottie dog was turned into a shaped card. The little tag around his neck reads 'sorry you're feeling ruff'. You can type any sentiment you want onto the tags on the CD, then print
Here's his back side. The sentiment inside reads 'hope you feel better soon'

and how about this for a card with a wow factor? It would make a great wedding card, done in white with a pair of lovebirds inside. I just used the ready coloured version. Yes, it was a lot of cutting around the struts, but they were clean and simple cuts, so didn't take too long...........




and here's the inside of the card. This one is huge. You have the choice of printing everything out in A4 (like this one) A5 or A6


If you are tempted, don't forget that Nikky does free shipping to anywhere in the world
These cards were made and parcelled up last week, ready for today's show, which is just as well, because yesterday, all the crafting gremlins in the world decided to pay me a visit.
You know the type of thing, carefully position an element onto a card with permanent adhesive, find out that you have stuck it on upside down....................... finish colouring a stamped image, drop it right into the middle of a black ink pad..........................cut carefully around a stamped image and CHOP right at the last snip, you cut right through a leg.............console yourself with a cup of coffee, oops, knock it over, how can one cup of coffee make a flood that looks as though a muddy Amazon river is flowing over your desk?
When that happens, there's nothing else for it, shut up shop for the day and watch a few soaps to numb the pain

  10. Very nice cards!
    The gremlin visited me last night too. I had one more gift to give a friend and made a tag to go onto it (see it on my blog www.kristiekreates.blogspot.com ) I got the gift all wrapped and discovered that I stamped and embossed the N upside down in her name. Oh brother! Oh well, that's the beauty of handmade!

  18. Love those cards! I've been playing a bit with the Sundae of Seasons I won from you. Do you just print on cardstock? I'm not sure about my printer ink. I think it may run when colored on. Do you set the ink with something? I think you can spray those gremlins with glitter mist to get rid of them!

  25. Love these cards especially the bird cage that really does scream wedding doesn't it.
    I am so glad I am not the only one that gets a visit from those gremlins but why oh why do they pick on us crafter's and not anybody else?

  26. Oh wow! I love that little dog! I'm fond of westies too. And that birdcage is so unusual!
    I too have had a major spill on my scrap stuff! Many years ago, and I have a cup holder on the side of my table. So my cup never comes in contact with the table top. So far so good! I also use covered bottles or cups too. I hope you didn't lose too much stuff!
