Happy Freebie Tuesday! I thought you guys might like a fun flower border that could be used all year round and this would make a great border for Christmas cards with red and green flowers, dont you think?

I hope you like this one, it reminds me of a border in a fairy tale book:)

I want to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and I hope you all enjoy your special time with your friends and families. Thank you all so much for your wonderful friendship and for all your lovely comments over the past year, I appreciate each and every one of you!

Merry Christmas!

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope your weekend was wonderful. I am so happy that I finally finished my new "Autumn Moon Venus" digital stamp, she is now available at my Etsy shop.It felt so amazing to be creating again, its been forever.
I hope you enjoy her as much as I do. I love this time of year, its so much cooler and it feels like fall almost and it makes me think of Autumn fairies and pumpkins and magical things to create for Halloween!

Tuesday, September 13, 2011


Since I've been so busy with my petsitting business I thought this would be a fun image for a freebie this week:)

Two puppies are always better than one, right? This would be a cute image for a best friend, a brother, sister, birthday for the twins or a cute image for a card for the dog lover in your life.

If you had to think of a caption/sentiment to go with this image, what would it be? I'd love to hear your ideas and I hope you enjoy your Puppy Twins Freebie this week!

And please visit my Etsy shop for your fall and holiday digital stamps and please also visit my Facebook page, and post any of your creations at the MPS Facebook page here!

Have a wonderful and creative week!

Hi friends!

I hope you all enjoyed your long Labor Day weekend for those of you in the US and for those of you elsewhere in the world I hope your weekend was just as nice!

I thought you might enjoy a little fun Halloween broomstick for your freebie this week since I know alot of you like to get a jump on the holidays coming up and my gosh Halloween is next month already! Cant wait for Halloween, its one of my favorite and I think the most fun holiday of the year. The Halloween decorations are already in the stores, too and I love looking at them especially those with lots of glitter! Are you guys dressing up for Halloween? What is the hot costume for the little ones this year? Are you going to dress up your doggies or maybe the cat has a cute costume? I'd love for you to share your Halloween fun with all of us!

Feel free to post any of your creations at the MPS Facebook page here! And please visit my Etsy shop for the latest digital stamps!

Enjoy your Halloween freebie!

Seems funny to not have a challenge for you this week but I wanted to keep posting a weekly freebie for you all, you have been such wonderful friends of Michelle Perkett Studio and you all deserve something special each week!

I know this is a "recycled" image from one of our Papercraft Planet parties and some of you may already have this one but I thought it would be a good one to start off the school year with. There are endless possibilities for the new year, so much to learn and this is the time of year when all of our returning students imagine the most I think! I hope you enjoy this one and I'll look for you next week with another fun freebie!

Ali Stanney - Guest Designer

This is our last week for our Guest Designer.
I am sad to see it come to an end.
I would like to thank everyone that participated with us.
All the projects have been so fabulous.

This week is no exception!!
We have Ali Stanney with us this week.
She has two gorgeous projects to share with us week but first lets learn a little about Ali...

I am 41 years old or young, depending on which way you like to look at it, and discovered cardmaking about 5 years ago, when I took a temporary break from my job as an infant school teacher after working for 15 years, to look after my family. I have been married to Simon for almost 19 years and our 3 little ones are aged 11yrs, 6yrs and 4yrs. Almost 6 years later I have become a full-time SAHM and care for our youngest who has Autism. I mainly use digi images although I do own a few rubber stamps, I still need to practise as I'm not great at it so far! I love my Bigshot, and have way too many dies and embossing folders, and don't use them nearly as often as I should! There are so many new products and techniques out there I'm looking forward to trying at some point in the future, and I can't wait to see the possible new directions my cardmaking may take!. The Autumn will see an exciting new start for me, as he will be starting school and I will have time to dedicate to other things. I look forward to volunteering at our local Opportunity Group for preschool children with special needs, where I  will be introducing lots of craft and sensory-play activites. I have only been blogging for about a year, but have met some truly  wonderful people along the way. I am delighted and honoured to be a GDT for Michelle Perkett Studios, as I LOVE Michelle's work and the challenges the team bring us each week...thanks for having me!

Now look at what she created to share with us using
Air from the Four Elements Series.

Aren't these gorgeous!!
Thanks so much Ali for being our Guest Designer this week!

Love and Hugs,


For inspiration, take a look at some of our Design Team projects using this week's challenge theme...

Shelley used last week's vintage freebie...

Mari uses this little cutie...

And a special note from me to everyone - I am so thankful to have been part of such a great team, full of talent and compassion. The inspiration from everyone has been truly stunning and awe-inspiring. I wish everyone (especially Michelle) the best and can't wait to see us all achieve the things in life we deserve. Take care and come back Saturday for our Spotlight Saturday wrap-up! Thank YOU!

Lizzy Miller - Guest Designer

I'm late, again!!
Sorry about that. This week has simply gotten away from me. I  can't believe it is Thursday already. I meant to have this posted this morning.
We have a very special guest with us this week
7 year old, 
We have been honored to have her mother, Rhonda and her older sister, Abby as guest designers in the past.
This entire family is very TALENTED!

So let's hear about Lizzy!

My name is Lizzy and I am 7 years old.  I will be starting 2nd grade next week and am very excited.  I just love spending time with my mom and sister doing crafts and making cards.  I've been crafting with my mom for as long as I can remember.  I love to add embellishments and bling to my creations whenever my mom let's me use her stash.  I also like to play outside on the swings and go to the park.  My favorite place to visit is the zoo.

Now look at this gorgeous card Lizzy
created using Eva the Glam Mermaid.

Thanks so much Lizzy for your inspiration this week! 

There is still time to join the Vintage challenge,
