TIC TAC TOE DT project for Tiot.
Maybe I should say this my first attempt at one of these I think, make sure you check my team mates brilliant projects here , there is also the tac tac toe board there as well.
Here is my attempt, a little tongue in cheek, as I created a tic tac toe layout. I used the punches, bling and cardboard row, I actually think I got a little confused, so be sure to check the row you choose carefully.

Add a photo ( Vintage or Modern ) TIOT challenge DT project.
Hope everyone has had, a good weekend, mine was busy Saturday trying to catch up and finding a missing die (instead of sock gremlins in this house we have die gremlins !!! ). Today we were at church saying goodbye to the vicar and his wife.
I had planned to use a Tim Holtz die and some vintage photos but of course could not find them, my excuse is we are very topsy turvy at the minute finding new homes for our crafting goodies, so they are all over the house until they find a new home within the house.
The rubric and my fellow DT's projects can be found here .
I had said to her about my problem and she said do a project life page and proceed to bring all her stuff and there's a lot to my work table. To say I was overwhelmed is a understatement, this is what I came up with, the pictures and words relate to one of my daughters training days for The Tour De France last year.
I used a Heidi Swapp stamp set I have just got from the states to say I am unimpressed with the quality would be a true statement, so please excuse the poor stamping.
Thank you for looking, I look forward to seeing your projects.

Spooky is the challenge on TIOT this week.
This is my offering for this challenge, it's just a simple folded card, I used this image a few years ago to make invitations for charity Halloween party, it was well over a hundred invitations that time. I had to compete with a lack of electrics so it was interesting making the card in those conditions.
Please look at my team mates wonderful projects on our blog and the challenge details, I look forward to seeing your entries.
Have a good week.

Colours of Summer : TIOT challenge
This challenge made me think a little and I was not sure where to go with it. I recently got some mini pads from craftwork cards and the papers in this pad made me think of those colours from my childhood on early morning walks when we were on holiday in the south. They are soft hues the sun throws out as it rises in the morning.
The photo does no really do the paper justice, and you cannot see the shimmer I got from using a iridescent pen.
Please be sure to check out my team mates great projects here and details of the challenge.
Have a great week.

Hope you are having a good week, make sure you check my wonderful team mates projects and details of the challenge here.
I have had the Stampin Up framelet set for a little while and it has screamed out at me to use it and I have become a little deaf, but I heard it for this project.
The image is a stamp from Lilli of the Valley which i have paper pieced apart from the skin which I coloured
The paper is from a mini pad from craft work cards

Today's challenge at TIOT here, is using a mask on a birthday project be sure to visit our DT projects for inspiration.
As you will know from the blog,I am celebrating a very special birthday this week and have a small prize for all that leave a comment here and post an entry on TIOT for this challenge if you give me your entry number I can go and look at your entry. I will post worldwide.
here on you tube.
The masking is the clouds at the back, I made my own stencil and then used distressed inks. The stamps are from CC called " Around the World", these are some places I would like to see. I stamped the images with Espresso Truffle by Memento and then inked the edges with Frayed Burlap after I had fussy cut them. The happy birthday was cut from a die that was a freebie from a magazine.
Here's a overhead view
Here's a view of the back.

DT Challenge Handmade on TIOT
The challenge today, is to make a project showing handwriting wow was that a task ( I cannot believe I used to do wedding invitations etc and received training as a Calligrapher, sadly since my illness developed I cannot do it anymore.)
That said I enjoyed giving it a try, but the writing is nothing to write home about hee hee. I made two, cards in a box, have found a lovely tutorial showing you how to get two cards out of one A4 sheet tutorial here. I used the stamp set from the creative stamping magazine called Timeless Opulence, I love it, my daughter went yuck until she saw them stamped now she likes them. I also used a old piece of Stampin up paper both sides and a new Stampin up stamp.Sorry the rest is picture heavy.
Here comes the handwriting
A last look at the cards

TIOT challenge Travel DT project. A squash book.
The challenge this week is "Travel", which gives you a wide interpretation, do join us in the challenge and check the other design team members at our blog here
This travel journal is made from three sheets of 12x12 card and decorated with papers from my stash, the cover is covered with printed acetate with map paper underneath. I have not included instructions as there are lots for squash books on the Internet. I used Washi tape on the project, the first time I have used it.
This post is rather picture heavy:
