DT Day with SUE

HI Everyone, it is my DT Day today and I thought I would do a little project!
I believe in recycling, reusing and repurposing things and when my daughter's Epipen expired I was left with this great green case with a locking lid. Just the thing for me to find something to do with it!
I first printed the image called " Little Sign Mouse" by Meljens and punched it out with a square scalloped punch. I then cut a background cardstock and rounded the corners of it. The image was then coloured with Copics and I added the word "Piercers" to it.
Here is the end result! I now have a fantastic container for my piercers and needles (which were ALWAYS getting lost!) and a great tag to go on it!

Check out Meljens wonderful designs at: and also join us in the monthly challenges!

Hope you enjoy,
Pin It!

September DT Day with Susan

Good morning everyone :) And happy Tuesday!! I can't believe that half of September is gone!!!  Crazy!! So, today is my Design Team Day at Meljen's Designs. And I am loving working with the little dragons, so for this inspiration I have used Sleep Little Dragon and created an ATC with it:

I colored this little cutie up with my Copic Markers. I used the Colorless Blender to add some texture to him. I did a bit of decoupage on him.. his belly is rounded and popped and then his hands and feet are popped as well. I stamped the white paper with a couple of different stamps. I added the green and orange gems. I wrapped the twine in the middle and that is it!

Copic Markers Used:
  • Orange: YR02, YR04, YR09
  • Green: YG01, YG05, YG09
  • Mouth: R39, R59, RV69
  • Tongue: R22

DT Day with Tracie

Today I decided to use another Christmas Card for my Design Team entry for Meljen's Designs.  I know Christmas is right around the corner and I won't have enough Christmas cards.  For my card I used the adorable Cozy Winter Owl image.  I used my green, red and Stardust stickles to really make the image pop.

Have you visited Meljen's Designs recently and seen Melissa's new look to her blog?  It is amazing.  In honor of the new shop launch, Melissa is currently having a 50% off sale for the month of September.  Be sure and get your holiday images now.

DT day with Céline

Hi everyone!!
I had lost my inspiration this week but luckily there's Pinterest. I couldn't think of anything to make for my blogpost for today so I went browsing on Pinterest and found this cute milkcarton.
It's really easy to make and it makes a perfect last minute gift.

I've used "Berry Happy" on my milkcarton and fuzzycutted the strawberry so it popped a little more. I've decorated my milkcarton with a big flower and some leaves, punched two holes in the top and put a ribbon through it. Before you tie it closed, you can fill it with little treats of your choice like sweats or cookies.
(If you want you could even make a little window in it, so you can see what's inside)
Don't forget to take a look at the shop because Melissa gave the shop a fabulous make-over!! In honour of the shop upgrade she's got a sale going on!

Until next time!

DT Day with Amy

Good Morning! 

We have a challenge #226 going on right now using "SCHOOL SUPPLIES"

So I thought I'd make a Post-It Note Easel Card. 
I found this great tutorial over at StampARTic.

I used the fabulous NEW Melissa Pencil Mouse. I thought it went well with the note holder. :o)

I have a 1/4 inch fold, so it lays flat when needed.

I layered the pencil in 3D for more dimension

I sure hope I've inspired you to join in our 
"School Supplies" Challenge

For more information on how I made this, check out my blog

Don't forget Melissa has a 50% off sale all September to celebrate the new shop launch

Happy Craftin'!
