**NEW** T4T Holiday Release!!

Hi there!
Is everyone busy putting up their Christmas trees?? I've not started yet but am hoping to tonight & I've a feeling it may start with some Christmas Light untangling :) Queue the inspiration for new digi no.1! :)

I loved colouring this one up but unfortunately I didn't get time to colour up the rest. :( It was great fun creating the folds on her skirt & the tinsel effect for the decorations. I used Copics to colour & a mix of glitter & Tinsel Embossing Powder for my sparkly tinsel.
Next up is the super cool Beanie Girl. She's ready for some Boxing Day Sale action I reckon...

 This next one I love. She's called Masquerade Ball as was inspired by the theme for my work Christmas Party. We won't be dressed quite as elaborately as this, she was based on Kirsten Dunst in Marie Antoinette, but we will all be wearing the venetian style masks & I can't wait! :)
Some more winter themed gals are up next; Super Cute Hat, so named because it so is!
 & the oh so cute Winter Hoodie completes the collection!
I really hope you like this months digis & that you enjoy colouring & creating with them.
Happy Holidays everyone & don't forget to support Small Businesses this Christmas. :)

Winter Socks & a 'Virtual' Card

Hi there,
As promised here is some coloured inspiration in the form of a 'virtual' card!
I really enjoyed colouring this image & couldn't wait to do it but then found that I'd run out of time to make a real card using her! It's one of the downsides of being so busy that I spend so much time designing I don't get enough time to create using my own designs!! Raargh!
I am pleased with how this looks though even though it was hastily put together digitally! The colouring is all by hand though & I spent a good deal of time getting her just right. When I get time I will definitely be make her into a 'real' card.
Anyway I hope you like her. You can get her here now! :)

Charity Sale Update

Morning all,
This is just a quick update on how our recent fund raising efforts went!
I am so grateful to everyone who bought one of these special digis from me. Your kind purchase has helped my team raise a whopping great £1600.00 for Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity. Isn't that amazing???!
I'm thrilled & a huge thank you to everyone who donated, helped & spread the word! :) x

Sunday, 20 October 2013


As I've grown up I've come to love Halloween more & more! I think it reminds me of being a kid plus its a great excuse to dress up & have a party!! I have 2 different outfits planned this year for 2 different events & I cant wait!!
In the meantime I've had chance to get some crafting done - a rare event these days! I've also managed to get myself organised with updates to FB folders & my Pinterest accounts. Wow!! That Pinterest is ADDICTIVE!! Lost a good hour and a half there!
I've also got my sketch on this weekend which was so much fun! Really missed it & have some fun images to share with you soon.
Anyway enough rambling here is my latest make Frankencutie.

The papers are all digital from Jessica Sprague various collections & Frankencutie is coloured using a combination of Copics & Promarkers.

I really enjoyed making this card & it came together pretty quickly for me. Usually I spend hours pondering over my layout but this just seemed to work! maybe a break has done my mojo some good :)

Get Frankencutie now here.
& here she is 'spooked' up using some clever phone app thingy :)

I hope you like her & Happy Halloween!

 Tonight's newest digis are hopefully going to raise some much needed money for a very worthy charity & I really hope you like them.
Via my full time job I am hosting a charity event this weekend to raise money for W...eston Park Hospital Cancer Charity. Weston Park Hospital in Sheffield is one of only four dedicated cancer hospitals in England. Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity supports the hospital by funding pioneering cancer research and helping to improve cancer treatments and care for patients from Sheffield, all of South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and North Derbyshire.

As the event my team and I are hosting is a Comedy Night a Clown digi & her performing pooch seemed appropriate!

For this weekend Circus Hoop & Pasquale the Circus Pooch will be available for £1.00 each with all proceeds going straight to this well deserving charity.


 I really hope you like the images & can offer your support to this great cause. For every donation made my employer BSkyB will match so really you are donating twice as much with every digi bought!!

You can find out more about the amazing work done at Weston Park at: http://www.wphcancercharity.org.uk/

Thank you

September Time For Tea New Release!!

Evening everyone & Happy September!!
This months release has a real Fall theme that will hopefully be perfect for your back to school cards & upcoming Halloween celebrations. I really love this time of year as its the build up to Christmas & there's loads of things to celebrate like Halloween & Bonfire Night! Its also great crafting weather haha! :)
This month I'm also introducing a new character, Polly! Polly is ...a little more childlike & traditional in style. She was inspired by a request I received from a magazine recently & once I'd created her I couldn't stop sketching her! I have loads of other sketches of her on the go for future releases so I really hope you like her.
Its been so busy round here lately what with holidays & starting projects with Whimsy Stamps that I've barely had a minute. Hence the reason I haven't coloured up any images for this release yet. I hope to get some colouring tutorials with the new digis up in the near future so look out for them.
Any hoo here is the latest release - its already one of my favourites & you can get it now from my Etsy shop here.

Happy Fall to one & all!!

I am so excited to announce I will be joining the team over at Whimsy Stamps who are currently showing at CHA in Las Vegas. They'll be sharing the news while there & the first collection will be available from August. For more details follow this Link. In this Post you'll see my designs up on the Whimsy stand!! How cool :) 

The second thing to update you with is that I will be back at Hobbycraft this Saturday (27th) in Sheffield. Hopefully I'll be showcasing the new Teresa Collins Stamp Maker as well as my usual card making & colouring techniques. I really hope you can join me. :)
