Holly without her bauble!!



Hi all, hope you are all well and ready for christmas! If you still have some quick cards to make then check out Bec;s range of digi's from the Blue Butterfly Digi -
'Christmas Collection', Holly is supposed to be sitting on a lovely Christmas Bauble , but I decided not to use it. I have again used the 'Eskimo Kisses' DP from Basic Grey, and MFT Snowflakes, the Kindy Glitz is Crystalina, but for some reason on the bottom Snowflake it looks green! Some ribbon an bling all done, and I made the white flower, didn't like it where it is but used my hot glue gun so it wouldn't come off lol, oh an the sentiment was a freebie by Ladybug Crafts with the Australian Simply Cards Magazine. Holly is of course coloured with my Copics these and all your supplies are available from Bizzy Bec's on-line store.
hugs

Best Friends

Hi Everyone,
Cheryl here, and today I have a card to show you using the adorable S.W.A.L.K stamps from Crafters Companion, this one is called Best Friends and the sentiments come with the image, don't you just love that sentiment , how true is it ! lol, if you dash over to Bec's Store you will find them at 15% off at the moment, and there is so many to pick from, and you will probably want them all.
I had so much fun colouring these little girls and even had a go at some grass and clouds. I cut them out with spellbinder ovals available HERE.

Just a reminder our Christmas Challenge is on right now, so get your Christmas creations entered!

I hope you all have a lovely weekend and happy crafting.
Hugs Cheryl

Here is a little information about Karyn.
Hi there! I'm a mum to 2 busy girls (3 and 10) and have an amazing husband who lovingly supports my crafting obsession. I live in the Adelaide Hills in Australia. I’ve been crafting my whole life but I only found images for colouring about 2 years ago when I was introduced to blog land! I like to colour using Stampin’ Up! inks, Prismacolor pencils, Distress Inks and more recently Copics. I’m often drawn to a vintage style with my cards and love to colour in black & white.


*************************************************************
On a really sad note, Today we are saying Goodbye to CHERYL, a really gorgeous lady who has been with Bizzy Becs Store Blog Challenges from the very beginning.
Cheryl has provided us all with some fabulous, amazing and creative inspirational cards over the very long time she has been associated with Bizzy Becs and we will all miss her.
"Cheryl" from all of us here at Bizzy Becs, Thankyou so very, very much.
but....... the good thing is Cheryl is not disappearing all together , you can pop over and visit her blog, HERE and even catch her creative genius on the Creatalicious Challenge blog HERE, phew !

Gift Card Tag Card Holders Tutorial


I no longer buy lots of gifts for neices/nephews as they are all getting older, so I get them gift cards from places I know they love and give them at Xmas. I was making some of these gift card holders to hang on my tree the other day and thought...hmm maybe others would like to make some too so I have done up a quick tutorial for you all.

I hope it makes sense and you take some inspiration from it.

First up you will need a piece of cardstock 12 inches x 4 1/2 inches (30cms x 11.5 cms.)
Score this at 5 inches (13cms) and fold in half.
You will then need to cut this into a tag shape.  I do this by measuring down 2 inches (5cms) down the sides and in 1 inch (2.5cms) across the top, drawing a line then cutting off the corners, and cutting through both layers. Hopefully the picture below makes it more clearer.


Now you can decoarte the front and the insides with paper of your choice.  You can do the whole front but for now just paper on the inside.

For the inside I like to create a writing panel so I can put a little note on it to the recipient wishing them a Merry Christmas. On this example I did this on the back of the front panel.


Now you need to create a pocket or something to hold the giftcard on the inside so it doesnt get lost.
I normally do this by cutting a piece of cardstock 4 1/2 inches x 3inches (11.5cms x 8cms).  Glue across the sides and bottom only and stick to the inside back flap and decorate.  You gift card then slides in this bit!

Now to hold it shut you will need to create some kind of catch to keep it closed.
On this card I did this by stamping out a small sentiment and creating a small rectangle with it.
I then just glued down the top of it making sure the bottom covers the front flap to keep it closed.

Now you just need to punch a hole and thread some ribbon through to hang from your tree.


and another one I did along the same lines but used a sentiment in a circle shape to keep it closed.
Just use your imagination!!!


Stamps I have used are Magnolia and Whimsy stamps available from Bizzy Bec's.
Images are coloured with Copics also available from Bizzy Bec's.
Ribbon, Lace and papers also available from bizzy Bec's wonderful shop!

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial!




Little Santa with Letter

Hi there!

Here is a Christmas card with a Blue Butterfly's digistamp named "Little Santa with Letter". I have colored him with my copics. This bag full of letters is the stamp of Magnolia.

Have a nice week!

Hugs, Sande xx

Romantic Magnolia's

Friday at last!

So this my first post for Bizzy Bec as one of her new Design Team members. I would like to share with you all a card that I made for my daughter as she is attending a wedding this weekend and needed her mum to make her a card.
Now I know that Bec doesn't have these particular Magnolia Images listed - however do you know if you email her - she will be more than happy to help you find the image you're looking for.

As you can see I've used some lovely papers (My Mind's Eye), flowers and a Magnolia die (hearts border), hearts (coloured with my copics) as well and these you can also pick up from Bec whilst perusing her online store. I've coloured my image with my trusty copics and did you know that Bec is a Copic Rewards Authorised Partner? Well she is.. and this is great as you can now order all your ciao's, sketch's and most importantly refills from Bec and get tokens to redeem on special Copic items..

Now don't forget you still have a couple of days to enter Bizzy Bec's November challenge circles!

So have a lovely creating weekend.

To love....

Hi Everyone, Debra here,  I have been having a play with my Magnolia stamps, I love this little Tilda, sooo cute.
Tilda Holding Egg Basket is her name and she came from Bizzy Becs Online Store  so if you pop a line to Bec I'm sure she can help you out if you cant find her.
 She did have eggs in her basket but I put in some little hearts instead, they come as pearl white so I coloured some of them with my Copic markers. These gorgeous hearts are also available from Bizzy Becs.
I also had a bit of a play with some grass for the grounding, lots of copic markers used here along with a White gel pen...
Don't forget to enter the Challenge this month, the theme is Circles.
Hope you Have a Great Day and Happy Stamping,xxx

Are you having Trouble with Blogger?

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone else was having trouble with Blogger..

I am unable to see any Images.. They all have a White Squares.. I am also unable to see any headers or profile pictures..

If you know of a fix I would love any help you may have..

Take Care,
Bec xx

PS.. As this is happening I am unable to see the Design Team entries blogs..

UPDATE -

Just in case someone else has had this issue.. I have now fixed it..

By any Chance are your using Kaspersky Anti Virus? If so here is the fix..

FIXED MY IMAGE PROBLEM

Click on Settings in Kaspersky > Go to Anti Banner (it would be at the very bottom of the lis)t > Go to the part that says "Use list of allowed URLS" (make sure it is ticked) Then click on Settings > Click on "Add" the add URL - blogspot.com - , then click OK..

Now restart your Browsers and Check your blogs.. I found that All my images have now returned in all my browsers, IE, Firefox, Chrome..

I hope this helps someone else.. Thank you "remoonline" in the Help Section for pointing this out.. I am sooooooo happy I can see images again on all blogs..
