Good Morning Ladies and Gentlemen to the last release of 2011!!  WOW...what an exciting year we've had.  I would like to thank all of our customers FRIENDS who have taken Teddy Bo and Bea to their hearts and have made the most WONDERFUL creations over the past year.  It fills me with immense joy to see my little doodles transformed into such gorgeous pieces of art....thank you....x

This baby wall hanging was made by doing a modeling paste transfer onto material. I then sewed my material around the square with the image, and added some padding and sewed the back with matching fabric. Then i machine quilted with the swirls and then sewed around the edges. I added prima flowers some buttons and rhinestones and some polka dotted ribbon. This is the new release image Teddybeabo_094.

and now for some D'Arcy's Diaries inspiration from the Teddy Bo DT

I've gone with one of the gorgeous new girl images DARCYSDIARIES_002
I've coloured her with copic's and added clear glitter pen on her heart and a touch of glamour dust on her wings.
The banner is from TEDDYBOBEA_091_SWAG. A little bit of glamour dust was added to the swag.
The trellis punch is by Martha Stewart, papers by Bo Bunny Enchanted collection, and card candi by Craftwork cards.
The inside of the card read's
"with love from your little angel"
Not sure I was ever a little angel, but it just fitted the image perfectly.  I simply love stripy clothes so its as if this image was made just for me

May's birthstone is Emerald(green)
I have made a birthday bag for my fiancé's daughter
Lovely new stamp DARCYSDIARIES_001
masked it with a Magnolia stamp(the wall)
Washitape on the bottom and
Charms is from PyHobby!
Paper is from Panduro

I have used my birthstone colour which is peridot,
and made a tag for a gift to my sister for Christmas.

I've used DARCYSDIARIES_002 and coloured her with a combination of Promarkers and Flexmarkers.

I have used DARCYSDIARIES-001 for both of these cards. They have both been coloured in with Promarkers. The top card was made with a digi kit which I played around in Photoshop (ooooo get me!) the second card is made using scrap bit of papers and the most gorgeous button ever! I wanted to show that by using the same image but coloured with such different colours it really changes the image itself.


I´ve played with the cute DARCYSDIARIES_002 colouring as always with Prismas and Polys
cardstock from Bazzill and SU
design paper from First Edition Paper
embellies rhinestones and for the heart and wings I´ve used glitter



Colorured with Prisma Color Pencils
A white paperbag
Martha Stewart puncher for the star border
Stamps from Stempelglede
Flowers from Storyteller and WOC
Purple "berries" from Magnolia
Feathers from my partner Freddy's tail
or maybe it was from Panduro


She's coloured with Prisma pencils and I've teamed her up with K & co.
 Watercolour Bouquet papers.

I made this 7.5 x 10 journal for my first DARCYSDIARIES_002 image! I mod podged some pretty rose paper on the journal front and a rose color to the back. I then spread white paint to them with a scraper and put on a thin layer for a shabby chic look. Added some rose lace ribbon  to the edge.  The image is colored with promarkers, I added the heart and wings in a 3D fashion , and added some gold stickles to the wings and pink distress stickles to the heart.  Gold glitter dotting the edge.  I tied the jounal with some sheer green ribbon. And MY HEART JOURNAL and fun print to the front!

I hope you've enjoyed the inspiration from our wonderful Design Team.  Remember you have until January 8th to enter our latest challenge which is BIRTHSTONE COLOURS.
