Check This Out!…it’s ‘Dot-A-Licious’!!

Well, here we are…it’s the first of March! A very happy St David's day to any of you of Welsh origin! It was so nice to see all the daffodils starting to break bud in the village this morning & what perfect timing they have!!

Mar2011 So..first off I have to point you in the direction of the March kit over at Dixie Pieces.  Called ‘Dot-A-Licious’ it is just fabulous! It includes so many gorgeous items…lots of polka dots as the name suggests, but also buttons, ribbons, flowers, bingo cards…& more!  Pop on over to Dixie Pieces to check out the content details in full! 

I have so enjoyed working with it & I suggest that if you want to order, you do so pronto!  February’s kit sold out very quickly & I have a feeling that this one will fly too!!

So what did I do with it?

6 CircusSchool  
My boys in 2004…learning circus skills at a school workshop! I used all four of the green check vinyl flowers in this one, inking & curling the edges…I also loved the red check semi transparent sticky tape I used for the name banners!

5 SeaAndSand 
More ‘vintage’ photo’s!! "2004 again…on Marazion beach in Cornwall! The double sided paper with the retro beach figures was my inspiration for this one!

4 AllTheFunOfTheFair 
A little more up to date…Bedford River Festival Fun Fair in 2006!! The frayed denim fabric strip was fun to use…I chose to make rosette flowers.

7 Flower Basket Card
I also put together two cards.

For the first used the shrink plastic from the kit to make flowers by stamping & then colouring in with ‘Whispers’ pens, before cutting them out & popping them in the oven…great fun!!!

I drew & cut the basket from the gutted piece of Kraft CS & the word ‘basket’ was from one of the flash-cards in the kit. The organza ribbon lends itself to pleating & bow tying beautifully!


8 Congrats New Job Card

The second card involved a bit of fussy cutting & stitching from one of the papers.

I’ll be using this one as the example for one of my challenges!  The theme for March’s challenges is ‘Green’ & they will be posted daily from now until the 10th March & you will have until 31st March to complete as many as you’d like! Details of the prize to follow shortly!!

You can check out the Design Team Gallery for the ‘Dot-A-Licious’ kit HERE!  It amazes me that we were all working with the same items & yet there is such a variety of work on display!!

That’s all for now, but I’ll be back soon with details of another challenge & what the Postie brought me this morning!!  Thanks for dropping by & I’ll ‘see’ you then!!  : )

Beautiful! Just beautiful! Your attention to detail is amazing. I especially love the seaside one too - I really need to get a bit of that paper with the figures on it.

You are doing them proud Sandi

Oh, wow! Love the kit, and love what you've done with it :-)

I'm all spent out right now sadly, after my Tim Holtz class (and the shop they had there!) - so I am NOT clicking on the link. They've probably sold out already, right? In which case a quick peek wouldn't hurt.... Aaargh!!! ;-)

And your shrinky-dinky flowers...to die for!!
Happy weekend,
