Polkadoodles and Emma

Polka what?  PolkadoodlesPolkadoodles and Studio 12 actually.  A brand new Design Team I've begun to create for.  Brand new to me, that is!   We have so many wonderful products to offer you that to attempt to describe them all makes my head start spinning!  I think best to describe Polkadoodles as our logo states- Cardmaking.  Papercrafts.  Inspiration.  Yes, that is safest until I learn all we have to offer.  I do know we are coming out with new lines in March.  CDs, papers, embellishments, digital download bundles, and newly discovered, wonderfully talented have got to take a look-see at our store!!! You will fall in love with the Polka Doodles/Studio 12 line as much as I have!  We even have a magazine and are on the telly!  Whoo-Hooo!!!

Oh dear, I forgot to mention that we have weekly challenges, too!  Every Friday.  Our theme this week is "Spring Flowers."  We have the best prizes and Top 3s too!  

For my first project, I made a step card with an Emma Canning image from the Polka Doodles Valentine Challenge.  I added a sentiment from the Heritage Download Bundle.   But oh, hogwash! I had a little problem with colored ink so I was unable to use all the fantastic goodies that come with the Heritage bundle so plain card stock for me.  Our papers available for download would have been perfect.....oh well, next card I will!  I hope you like my first project for Polka Doodles. 

The image is called "Be My Valentine" by Emma Canning.  Smell that sweet rose?  I made a few butterflies and covered them with Glossy Accents.  Other than the roses, I've cut up some flower dies to place around.

A little long of a post today but I am so very excited to share this news with you!  I'll be back with more Polka Doodles so you can get an idea of the many images  and goodies we have to offer...better yet, hop on over to the store and have a look around, especially the Gallery.  Don't forget to add your "Spring Flowers" project to the PD ChallengeTake a look at my Teamie's creations too, as we have a super talented DT that is sure to inspire you.

That is all for a moment!  I'll be right back...
Your friend,
Did you think I forgot to mention Bright Spots?  Ha!  I didn't! 


  1. I am speechless once again. This is a little piece of art and I so love the rainbow colours, the sequence of bows in front of her and the beautiful flourishes. Congrats with your new design team position - so well deserved.
