SWALK Pawfect Pals – Sneak Peek no.3 for today!

And here I am again!

I know you want to see more before the launch of the SWALK Pawfect Pals range tomorrow so I thought I would give you another image. This time it’s a dog! Every SWALK character in this range is shown with a pet/animal so this range is perfect for all the animal lovers out there.


I coloured this little person as a boy but you could easily turn the character into a girl by changing the colour of the outfit. And of course the dog would look just as lovely in black, brown or even purple if you are feeling brave! I used my Spectrum Noir pens to colour the image, the Petite Dots embossing folder by Crafter’s Companion and a backing paper from the Pawfect Pals CD-ROM for the background. Hope you like it!

SWALK Pawfect Pals – Another sneak peek for today

Hello hello again!

I just had to give you another sneak peek for today! I had so much fun colouring these stamps so I have to show you!

This one is the little princess kissing the frog. Isn’t she cute?!

Again, I used my Spectrum Noir pens to colour the image. To make the heart shaped easel card I used the Crafter’s Companion Ulti-Bags board. See? You don’t have to use it just to make boxes! The backing papers are from the SWALK Pawfect Pals CD-ROM. The stamps and the CD-ROM will be released on Friday so make sure to check the Crafter’s Companion News Blog for more information and more sneak peeks!!!

SWALK Pawfect Pals

Hello all

I have a little sneak peek for you today. It’s one of the new SWALK Pawfect Pals stamp. And yes, it’s a kitty! It’s no secret that I love cats so I can immediately drawn to this image.

I used my Spectrum Noir pens to colour this image in purple. But then I thought that she would look good in red as well so I created another card with the same stamp

The backing paper is from the Pawfect Pals CD-ROM. Most papers have a lovely texture and they look really good.

You have to wait a little bit more before you can get your paws on this stamp and CD-ROM – but it’s not long now, Friday is almost here!

Make sure to visit the Crafter’s Companion blog for more information and for more sneak peeks!

Love, Nandia

Toreads Book Stationery Box

Good evening all

I know I’ve been away for quite a while and I apologise for that. I was in Greece getting married and then I was on my honeymoon.

Now I am back and one of the first emails I had was from Leann asking me to make a sample for the Toreads release similar to the one I made for Moreheads. Well how could I resist?! I loved the shaped cards and I wanted them ALL in one place and that is why I made the original sample. But from this CD-ROM I also ADORED the concertina cards (anything with shape and movement – that is me!) So I’ve created the sample below that aparently everyone loved and I had requests to make a tutorial

I promised I’ve make one so here it is! I took a lot of pictures, I hope that makes it a bit easier. It is not a difficult project but it needs some time. I believe that once you make one you can easily make more quickly.

The tutorial is in a .pdf format so you can save it, print it and make it again and again.  To get the instructions click here  Stationery box tutorial

I would LOVE to see what you created using the tutorial. If you have any problems just leave me a note and I will get back to you.

And if you have time and you want to leave me a little note I would be extremely happy to read it and see what you think.

Craft into Christmas – Sneak peek 2

Hello hello!

Second sneak peek for Nigel’s new “Craft into christmas” CD-ROM and stamp range.

Today I picked to show you a card I made using the christmas tree stamp. It is a very intricate stamp but was suprisingly easy to colour. In this card I chose to stamp it on acetate with my glue pad (it’s an ink pad that has glue!) and then use some fine gold powder. I left it to dry and then I buffed it. I mounted it on some red card making it into a dome. The gold tree looks almost 3D! I was really pleased with how it turned out. Here it is!

It looks much better up close as you can see the tree pop out. The backing paper is from Nigel’s Craft into Christmas CD-ROM. The punch that I used to make the border is by Martha Steward. And of course some red ribbon!

If you would like a chance to win the whole Craft into Christmas range just put the image below in your blog or Facebook page and then enter a link in the Crafter’s Companion blog using Mister Linky. So what are you waiting for?! I promise you, you will love this new CD-ROM so go ahead and enter the competition to win it and all the stamps!

See you tomorrow with another sneak peek!

Sneak Peek 6 – Paintbox Poppets stamps and CD-ROM

And here I am again!

One more sneak peek for today. Are you all ready for the launch tomorrow? This sneak peek is another decoupage from the CD-ROM

I am so excited because now I can give my favourite decoupage away but always have copies for myself since I can print them again and again from the CD-ROM! The backing paper is from the CD-ROM as well. The metal embellishment was made with the Epiphany tool and the matching metal setting.

Now just leave me a comment below to have a chance of winning a copy of the CD-ROM. I will pick my winner on Friday morning

A bit over 12 hours till the launch now!

Sneak Peek 5 – Paintbox Poppets stamps and CD-ROM

And hello again!

Second sneak peek for today. Just thought I’d give you a little bit more before the launch tomorrow.

This image is from the Reddy die-cut decoupage.

I added a label cut with Spellbinders and embossed with the Large Petal Background Embossing Folder by Darice. It is one of my favourite embossing folders. The backing paper is from the Paintbox Poppets CD-ROM and if you want to win a copy simply leave me a comment below. There is still time! I will be picking my winner on Friday morning.

Lots of love, Nandia xxx

Sneak Peek 3 – Paintbox Poppets stamps and CD-ROM

And you thought I would post today! But here I am. I’ve been a bit ill today and had to come home from work. Still not feeling great but here I am with another sneak peek.

This time it is one of the stamping companions and the boy on the steps stamp.

For those of you who might not be familiar with the stamping companions it is a page that you print out from the CD-ROM and has all the elements to create a card but it also includes a tag which is the perfect size for your stamps.  I went for different colours this time for the stamp but still colouring with my Spectrum Noir pens. All the elements on the card (apart from the little piece of thread) come from the stamping companion on the Paintboc Poppets CD-ROM.

And if you want to get your own copy of the Paintbox Poppets CD-ROM just leave me a comment below and I will select one winner out of all the comments on my Paintbox Poppets sneak peeks on Friday using the random.org website.

Watch out for more sneak peeks!!!

Sneak Peek 2 – Paintbox Poppets stamps and CD-ROM

Hello again!

Here I am with another sneak peek and another chance for you to win the Paintbox Poppets CD-ROM

I chose to show you another stamp because they are my absolutely favourites. They are so detailed and intricate and look simply amazing! Like this little girl below – her shoe laces, the flowers, even down to her eyes, all the details are there. You really have to look at the stamps up close. 

I’ve used my beloved Spectrum Noir pens to colour her in and Leann’s technique from the DVD for colouring in really tiny areas – it works! The beautiful backing paper is from the Paintbox Poppets CD-ROM. All the papers in the CD-ROM are stunning and they will work with so many other projects, especially all your die-cut Paintbox Poppets decoupage. The flower corners were cut with April, my eCraft machine – she’s done a good job, hasn’t she?!

For your chance to win a copy of the CD-ROM and see the tons of lovely stuff on there just leave me a little comment to let me know what you think of the Paintbox Poppets stamps so far, what you think of the whole range, if you’ve have some of the decoupage or simply say “Hi!”

And keep checking back – you never know when the next sneak peek will pop up!

Love, Nandia

Today is the day!

Good morning all!

Launch day today, are you excited? In just a few hours you’ll be able to order your own SWALK Winter Cheer stamps and CD-ROM.

Here I am with my last sneak peek and it’s all about partying!

It’s called “Time to celebrate” and it makes me want to party! I’ve used Nestabilities to make the shaped easel card and some Core’dinations card for matting and layering. The stamp was coloured with my Spectrum Noir pens. I have added a tiny bit of glitter on the image to add some sparkle. The backing papers are both from the SWALK Winter Cheer CD-ROM.

I am looking forward to the shows tomorrow. Unfortunately I will be at work until 4.00pm so I have already set up the box to record them. Can’t wait to see what Leann has prepared for her demos, I love getting ideas and tips!

Love, Nandia
