Teddy Bo Top Tips, tutorial

Good morning friends!
Today over at the Teddy Bo blog I will show you how I do my bookcards.
It is a perfect gift filled with some chocolate or maybe crafting stuff
for one of your friends for Christmas!
I got a bookcard from Helle for my birthday and I measured it up to find out how she did it, and now I just love doing them!
@Laurie: Hope you like the tutorial :)
This is what I have done today:

Head over to Teddy Bo and check it out. If you follow my tutorial and do some homework using a Teddy Bo or Bea image and show it to us, Gayle (bigboss herself) send you a Bo or Bea image for free!
How cool is that!
And remember it is Christmas before you know it....
Hugs and Kisses

Halloween at Allsorts

 Happy Saturday crafters and friends!
As Halloween is coming closer, we have a fantastic challenge for you at Allsorts this week!


I have created a goodie bag for my daughter Gabriella since she has got permission from her brother to go out on Halloween with him.
Ok, we will se how that will turn out... Probable she will chicken out and stay at home...
But she is very proud of her bag and have had it on her chair beside her bed since I made it!

Front of the bag, showing the fantastic image Lil Haunts Vampire Lilith from Tickled Pink Stamps.
coloured with my copics.
The paper is a digi from Rasberry Road, butterfly set, one of their freebee set.
The text is computer generated
The only embellishments are the flowers, because Gabriella is not sooo careful and I guess if I covered it with flowers and charms and stash it will fall off the way she swings her bag!

On the back of the paperbag I have used digi Lil Haunts vampire Lestat, also from TPS, found here
The ribbons is from stash.
Fabulous images to work with!!

Soooo, now I wan't to see your Halloween creations,
come join us!!
We have some fabulous prizes up for grabs, check out the Allsorts blog to find out :)

Have a fantastic weekend!
hugs, Jill
