Play Date Cafe & Practicing Creativity

Today it’s time to play along with us over at The Play Date Cafe with some lovely fresh colours, pink, yellow and grey. 

I decided to make a little tag to match my card (see below) using my Practicing Creativity Key to my Heart stamp set.  It goes really well with my little tag die.  Behind the circular label you can also see I have stamped some diamonds so that I get my pop of black again!  I really love that harlequin pattern.   I'm going to be using them on my journalling pages too, one of the next few things on my list of things to do. For the heart shaped lock in the centre I stamped the big heart in pink and then overstamped the little heart in black.

I had made this little card for my Marmie (My Mum).  It’s really nice to make cards ‘just because’ instead of for a particular reason, don’t you think?  I’m sure you all know I find pastels a bit more challenging than bright colours but a pop of black helps me get out of my comfort zone!

At the weekend I also had a quick play around with my digital scrapbooking software to create a another page, for more info see my post here. This is what I came up with using our PDCC colours..

My Album 3-001
For this LO I used the Sweet Baby Girl template, switching out the background for large polka dots.  I then replaced the ribbon embellishments with some lemon flowers, added some text to each of the pictures and a title, and ta da…done!

Pop on over to the main Play Date Cafe blog to see what the girls have created with this week’s colours and check out all the deets on the prize to be won!
