La-La Land Crafts - October Kit Club DT Post

Happy Tuesday everyone! Well I hope it will be, Monday wasn't so great as it took me 2 hours to get home from work last night due to roadworks, that's crazy, I'm hoping that today won't be the same.

 It's time for me to showcase the October La-La Lands Kit.  I really do think this is the best one so far! BUT if you haven't signed up for the club and you missed out on this one, do sign up quick, because the next is even better! You can find full details of the Club here.

But on with today's makes. I made 2 Christmas cards in very different styles. 

For the first I went for very bright non traditional colours for a very modern feel, and I coloured Chickadee Marci with my Copics
Skin: E11, E21, E00. E000, R20, E04
Hair E30, E31, E33, E35, E37
Clothes: RV10, RV19, RV66, RV66, YG00, YG03, YG06, YG63
Bird: E33, E35, E37, R20, R00

Papers are by Whimsy, Merry and Bright. I used the snowflake border around the oval frame and lots of the tiny and small snowflakes cut with the dies in the kit.

Love this ribbon and the button.

I popped some of the pine branch die cuts under the flowers.  Lots of goodies used from The Ribbon Girl
38 mm Fuschia Pink/White Spot Organza Ribbon
Snowflake Wodden Button
55 mm Monique White Guipure Lace
White Chrysanth
White Semi Open Rose Bud

For my second card I went to the other end of the scale, I coloured Marci in black and white with just a touch of blue for her cheeks, her ear muffs, her boot cuffs and the breast on the bird.
The card is in blue and white for a lovely 'frozen' appearance.

This time I used distress inks in Black Soot and Weathered Wood.

The papers were some older Pion Christmas papers I had lurking in on of my paper drawers.

Both cards are available to buy in my Etsy shop


Well that's all from me today, I hope my makes have inspired you and shown you how it's possible to create very different styles with the same kit.

Have fun! :) xx
