The Crafting Cafe Challenge Blog - First Challenge

Hi there

It's the big launch of The Crafting Cafe Challenge Blog.

The first challenge is up and running over here.

The Challenge is sponsored by LEJ Designs

 and you can visit her wonderful digi images here.
Now the First Challenge on the blog is nice and easy, Anything Goes! I have used a digi image from LEJ Designs called 'An Angels Touch' and it is available to buy from LEJ Designs website.
This is my card
It's a twisted easel card (only my second time doing one of these and I do quite like them). I used very muted colours, I was originally going to just stick to white on white, but decided that the wee touch of gold just set the card off.
This is a close-up of the image
I decided to try something a wee bit different with the wings and used some maribu feathers to decorate them. I think they look really effective and like a real angels wings (Yes - angels are real, and you won't change my mind!). I coloured the hair and skin with my promarkers and used gold mirricard for the backing. The butterflies are also from gold mirricard with some bling added.
This is the sentiment
Very fitting for the card. I have a guardian angel, but that is a long story for another day :) xx
Now pop on over to The Crafting Cafe Blog to enter your card, you might even win 4 fab digis from LEJ, and see some more inspiration from the other members of the DT. New wonderful inspiration will be posted throughout the month!
Love n Kisses
Thanks for looking

A Review of The Docrafts Creativity Club

Good Morning 2013!

I have not been around for many moons, but this year I intend to get my blog up and running again :oD.

I spend a lot of time on Facebook now, where quite a few of my crafting friends live. While on there a few days ago I saw a request from Emma Collins (the Creativity Club Manager) for some people who are Docrafts members, but not Club members, to do a review on the Club.

I was given access to the club for a few hours in order to have a look around and play to see what my thoughts were.

Welllll - how could I resist. I was thinking about joining the Club when it first opened, but fear of the unknown and all that (and the fact that my kids have me robbed blind), I didn't bother at the time.

After having a good old play and checking out all of the content in the Club I must say I am very impressed. For the not so pricely sum of £24 for 12 month (YES - just £2 a month!) you have access to the following:

1. Club TV - An area where you can view all different kids of demos presented by real crafters, who know what they are talking about. With step-by-step demos on how to create a number of items from different shaped cards to clocks. A brilliant area for those of us who aren't so good at following the picture tutorials.

2. Exclusive Forum - Just for Club members where you can discuss all items relating to the Club (i.e. help with projects etc) or just for a general chit-chat, something we crafts love to do just as much as crafting :oD.

3.  Projects - An area where you can follow step-by-step picture tutorials on how to create a variety of different items Exclusive to the club like gift bags, photo holders, cards, jewellery and gift boxes to name but a few. Easy to follow instructions on how to make each item.

4. Downloads - A priceless area which allows you access to Exclusive content not available to anyone else. Papers can be downloaded that match the Docrafts Range of Products, Templates for the Projects, Digistamps, Jewellery Making, Decoupage Sheets, samples of up and coming ranges, the list goes on.

5. Magazine Library - Where you can access full back issues of the Docrafts Magazine. A must if you want to see something in a magazine that you might have missed, or if , like me, you have so much craft stuff, you just can't find the magazine that you want!

On top of all this you also get 15% reduction in the Docrafts Online Store!! as we as reduced P & P. I also spied Exclusive Offers on items for Creativity Club members. Along with Club Member prize draws!

As if that wasn't enough, once you join you also get a free goody bag with your first order. This includes a set of clear stamps, a mug, a cotton bag, a mouse mat and a Club Member badge!

I have a birthday coming up soon and I think this is going to be on my list. With all your crafting needs in just one place, how can I resist, How can you resist!!!

At only £24 for 12 months OR £13.50 for 6 months why not give it a try.

For more information and details of how to subscribe please pop over to Docrafts

Thanks Emma for the opportunity to view the Club and all it has to offer.

Go on - go and join! You know you want to. It costs less than a mag per month and has loads of useful content, which is updated regularly.
