Passion for Markers Holidays Challenge

Good morning bloggers!

  It's my turn in the hostess chair (sadly no cocktail in hand!) over at Passion for Markers this week and I've chosen a theme of holidays.  It can be any sort of holiday - summer, Christmas, adventure - whatever sort of holiday you like!

The papers I've used are from a really old Recollections 12x12 pad and I've used a gorgeous new die set from Marianne Designs  with this fab deckle edge - it's called Stamp Frames COL1532.  I then added a postcard stamp sentiment form Tim Holtz and the Wish you were Here is another Marianne item from the Wishes sentiment set , CS1079

The DT have been lucky to be able to choose an image from our sponsors this week, Leann's World  101, and I've used this gorgeous image called Martini.
 Leann’s World 101 and they are offering one lucky winner 2 digi images of their choice from. their online store.  

As always, you can use any type of marker, just remember to state which ones you've used.  You can join in the challenge here at Passion for Markers - you can also see all the fab makes of my teamies.
I'm already looking forward to seeing all your holiday creations this week - have fun!

First Christmas Card with July release Marianne products

Woohoo my first Christmas card of 2023 - well, for my own personal cards!  I absolutely  love this Winter Rectangle die which is part of the July release from Marianne Dies.  I've used it with Colour Core paper and sanded it gently to reveal the white core.  It was a great card to make - quite simple but I love the snowman die and stamp too - will be making a few more of these, I think.  Full list of products below.

Passion for Markers Clean and Simple

Hi folks

I'm a little late in sharing my card for our latest challenge at Passion for Markers - I'm down in Norwich at the minute helping my sisters look after our very poorly Dad.

Anyhoo, this is my card for our current Clean and Simple themed challenge over at Passion for Markers here.  I've used one of our sponsor images, Valentine, from Sheepski Designs, and you can see more fab creations using Sheepski images from my teamies over on PFM HQ.

Our generous sponsor this week is Sheepski Designs and they are offering one lucky winner 3 digi images of their choice from their online store.  Most of the DT have used images from Sheepski Designs on their creations this week.

The distressed edge DL frame is from Marianne Designs (CR1569) and the sentiment is an older Stampin Up one.

I do hope you will find some time to create something for the challenge, and I look forward to seeing what you create.

Hugs, Juliexx

Stamps By Me Premium Magazine

Aren't these just the prettiest papers and stamps!!  They're from the latest Stamps By Me Premium Magazine released at the end of May.  It's such a lovely collection to work with.  I've interspersed my photos with those from the publication - I just love how they stage everything so perfectly!

You can find the magazine here at Craft Stash for online ordering if your local newsagent doesn't stock it.
