World Book Day at The Paper Shelter

 Hello Crafty Peeps,

This week at The Paper Shelter we are celebrating our favourite books, which gives so many themes to play with!

One of my favourites as a child was always The Worst Witch and I have read my copy to my daughter. Let me know below what your favourite childhood book was!


'Cool Little Witch' is a great image for this book, as she seems like she wouldn't be the best student at school!

I have made a twisted easel card, with an added side panel to give it that extra space to play with!

I was wondering what to do with the side panel, but I thought about Mildred tying up her boots and thought eyelets and ribbon would be perfect!

I dressed the witch in stripes to portray the uniform at Miss Cackle's Academy. Not the same colours, but I wanted purple to go with my colour scheme.

Please come and join in our challenge this week and remember, you can use any image but if you use a Paper Shelter image you are eligible for a higher value prize!

You Are My Sunshine

 Hello Crafty Peeps,

After a couple of weeks with both kids at home with colds, it feels weird to be sitting here alone. I'm just thankful that they are both well and it wasn't Covid. 

Of course, there are other bad things happening in the world and that brings me to the creation I want to share today. Sweet November Stamps have monthly newsletters with free images and the last one was created to share some love with the people of Ukraine.

'Sunflower Fairy' is also available in the store if you missed the newsletter.

I made a cute 4x4 card with no embellishments, as I wanted the image to be the main focus.


I love to outline the wings with white to make them look more transparent and of course I had to add some sparkle!


Thanks for stopping by to view my art,

Spring Pastels at The Paper Shelter

 Hello Crafty Peeps,

This week at The Paper Shelter we are asking you to use Pastel Colours.

I have used 'A.Mucha Influence - Spring' to create a single-layered card that focuses only on the image.


I wanted to add a little something, so I made the dress sparkly.


Please come and join in our challenge this week and remember, you can use any image but if you use a Paper Shelter image you are eligible for a higher value prize!
