A Tip & Tricks Tutorial Video for LLC ♥

EEEeeeeek Im kind of giddy today because Ive something new to share with you!!
Well new for me that is!!
At LLC this week our challenge was Tips & Tricks!

Ive always shied away from YouTube and 'How To' videos', as I never watch until the end, or I get distracted because I just want to create myself!!
But Ive made a simple, very short film..... a little insight of how I prepare my cards...
You never know I may attempt a video next!!!
 Watch this space!!!

So grab a cuppa and click the pic below

Ok so are you still with me hey!!?? 
I hope you haven't fallen asleep, but I tried to make it short and sweet♥ and give you a little insight on what goes on behind the scenes at Dolphin HQ!! Saying that I daredn't show you my craft room right now!!! 
For my card I've water coloured 'Tilda With Kneesocks' from the Sakura Collection 2015
I actually decided the colour of her dress(TIP) before I chose the papers with this one.. I love the colour jade green and cream together and to get this colour I mixed Weathered Wood and Peacock Feathers
Then I matched up the papers..I dont always do it this way around...The easiest way is to choose the papers first and work your colours around it.
Luckily for me I found Pion 'Paris Flea Market' papers were just perfect :D

Dies used are DooHickeys from Magnolia. The Flowers are from the DooHickey Volume 5 Celebrations and Leaves, Butterfly and shape of the card are from the Vintage Box Volume 1
The rest of  HOW is in the video and what I have used is listed below.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did making the video...I surprised myself with this as I actually really enjoyed making it!!! 
Though the tune is stuck in my head now!!!hee hee
Have a fab weekend


Winter Fun♥

Oh its finally the weekend! :D
It seems to have been a looooooong one this week. But now its time for some fun:D

Here's my card for this weeks Live and Love Crafts theme- Winter

Ive been inspired this week by all the amazing Snapchats Ive had from my Scandinavian family and friends of the stunning pictures in the snow.
Just beautiful...We had snow last weekend here in the UK, but its all gone :(

For my card Ive coloured Italian Speedy Tilda from the 'Little Italy Collection' with Distress Re-Inkers
I masked her with the Magnolia Wedding Background stamp, though I managed to mask out the church and just use all the trees, which have been covered in lots of Snowtex.
Lots of DooHickey Winter Tress
The rest Ive listed below is from LLC...Just click the links :D
