Nicecrane's new designs



Note re Saturday candy: I know I said I would bring it back after Christmas but the hospital have added more tests and MRI's in for the coming week ahead of the 15th so I decided it was a safer bet to just do a larger candy for the month. It's posted at the top of my blog and hope you will all join in the fun.

So now it's time for our first Allsorts challenge of 2014 and our Tracy Mouse has chosen Free and Easy as the theme so it is a great opportunity to get out all those new crafting goodies Santa delivered. Our sponsors are Nicecrane Designs and DigiStamp.

I have used some of Ignacios new designs, the top one using the Magical Names sheet and the one below the new Alice in Wonderland sheet. The photo of the who card is not brilliant so I am including a couple of close ups as well.


I rather like the way the various images allow you to tell the story of Alice's adventure and I thought a concertina book was the perfect way to showcase them


The frames around each photo is an integral part and I added a little distress ink to each and printed a few extra so I could colour them and cut out to embellish the sections and added some computer generated words.


Have a lovely weekend everyone and I hope you will join in our challenge this week. I will be popping in to visit ass and when but this weeks sees the start of renewed hospital visits before the op so it may be spasmodic.

I´m also going to do a MRI on tuesday. To see if I had stroke

We just have to enjoy the moment and appreciate each day.

I love all the Magical names images, and the colours you used look so pretty and great design with the branch.
What a fantastic way to show case the Alice In Wonderland image sheets. It's a fabulous creation.
Happy crafting

Paula (PEP) said...

I particularly like the first with the way you used the die-cuts to echo the little bird on his sprig from the image itself - I love the little bird's eye & the way your little flowers really brink out the aqua tones.
The sec on is beautifully put together with your added accents really brining it to life.
Thinking of you
Much love
Paula (PEP)
