Totally Gorjuss NEW

The last challenge for 2013 for Totally Gorjuss is here... and its all about new.
I was talking to my friend and decided this could be taken as New Year, New Beginnings, New product, new technique.. I mean really its all about your perception of the challenge isnt it
I am lucky enough to work with a beautiful young girl who found out she was pregnant earlier this year, and after the shock subsided the excitement kicked in.
She had her baby on the 19th Dec, what a great Christmas present that keeps on giving.
Please visit the Totally Gorjuss Challenge blog and play along with the rest of the team this week and stay tuned for the new challenges to come in 2014

Eek, Christmas Card - Quick

Hi everyone and Merry Christmas to you all.

Have you got any last minute cards to make for Christmas this year?  If so your in luck as our theme for this weeks Totally Gorjuss Challenge is
Eek! quick Christmas card.

I actually had a ball making this card, which started off as a piece of white card stock and ended up like this.

I realised that it was a little bland when left white on white, I grabbed my copics, air brush and compressor with a few post its for masking and wallah.. a quick cute little Christmas card.  I was impressed that my compressor and air brush got some use, I tend to forget I have those tools!

The sentiment is another from Amy R - Big Christmas Wishes

Anything with Santa

Totally Gorjuss is having another Xmas challenge and we are after your anything with Santa projects. I dug into my SVGcut files and found this lovely guy.

I must remember to dig into cut files more often, I quite like the stamp style card base.

We finally popped our Xmas tree up this weekend and just as we finished with the Christmas ornament vomit (oh sorry..adding decorations) I declared we forgot to put the lights on the tree ...oops.

below is work in progress

near complete xmas ornament vomit..decorating that is..

we had to keep it fairly low on ornaments on the lower edge of the tree as our dearest little kitten is in ornament frenzy.

Now.. back to the challenge. Please pop over to the Totally Gorjuss Challenge blog and link up your creations. We are looking forward to seeing your Santa creations.

Clearing my table....

So who can craft on a messy desk?  I nearly just dragged my arm across the desk to bin the lot but on closer inspection I realised I could actually make something with these bits and pieces on the desk.
So.. here was the result of about an hours work and I now have a semi clean desk (some things are still to be binned I fear).  The irony of these little bit of pieces.. my inlaws have decided we are not to buying gifts at Christmas, and im really only buying for my kids and my sisters boys.  So.. lots of tags and not many gifts!  The bright, very ugly tag with splotches is for my sister who is an artist.. its meant to be tongue in cheek, I hope she gets it
Im going to play in the Simon says stamp challenge today, its anything goes but they are keen to see some Ranger and Tim products used.  I used my distress, time tag die and archival inks, aswell as stains on that ugly tag!

Snowing at Totally Gorjuss

Another week has passed and its time for another Totally Gorjuss Challenge.
This week we are after your projects with snow, initially I was lacking in inspiration but then I started colouring an image and found the perfect background paper in my new Echo Park christmas paper pad and I was off.
I even used my Tim Holtz stamp to create some faux snow..

of course I would like to link up with a few other challenges
Simon Says Stamp are having a Anything Goes challenge but wouldnt mind seeing Ranger/tim products.
Crafty Calender Challenge are all things Christmas in November.
