Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Home For Christmas

Have you seen there's a new fab and rather lush collection from Polkadoodles? It's called Home for Christmas.  Well the rather talented Nikky Hall has given us DT permission to start sharing some of our projects with you all using this new collection. 

So over the next few days expect to see glorious creations of fab-tastic design! 

So today I'm going to share a card I've made with one of my footy friends in mind. I've literally only used a few digi stamps & a sentiment from the collection.

So I took the Santa and coloured him with markers choosing the appropriate shades of blues! 

Then I printed off some of the other digi images and only added a slight shade to them. I wanted Santa to be the bold image, but wanted to create a collage-type effect. I did also add sparkle to the house windows (Oh my you should see the houses in this collection!) and flower centres before touching Santa's Glasses with Glossy Accents.

Once I had layered everything and stuck it to the shaped card I added sets of 3 dots in the gaps. This is a great tip I picked up it means the white spaces are no longer too obvious and they help to finish off the card.

There hope you like this first of many projects and I've only used a minuscule amount of what is in the collection so you will see lots more if you check out the other DT blogs over the next week or so!

Take care Zo xx
