Birthday Pinwheel Card...


For the Bubbly Scrumptious blog this week I've had a go at making a Pinwheel, a first for me!  A lot easier than I thought and so effective. 
The papers are from one of my favourite scrapbook companies  - My Minds Eye.  Love their 6  x 6 paper pads, 24 sheets of cardstock quality paper and each sheet is double sided so 12 unique designs per pad.
There's a full supplies list and a how-to make it guide over on THIS page.


Scrap Buster...



Are you like me and hate throwing away those scraps of cardstock and patterned papers? Well, now's your chance to use them! Our latest challenge over at Let's Craft and Create is...

Scrap Buster

I get an immense satisfaction from using up my scraps. For my DT project I've created a set of mini cards with some off cuts of Echo Park Happy Days papers, a couple of punches and a few stamps.

Check out the Blog for some inspiring ways to use your scraps from the Let's Craft and Create designers and the fabulous prize on offer for one lucky winner. I hope you can find the time to join in the fun.

Thanks for visiting today :)


Shabby Chic Tag...



It's been a while since I last entered a challenge over on The Shabby Tea Room  blog.  This week's the theme is
Elegance & Lace

I had a couple of hours spare this morning so I made a shabby chic tag using some lovely products from The Ribbon Girl store I had lying on my craft bench.  A nice change from all the CAS cards I've been creating lately.
Check out The Shabby Tea Room Blog for some wonderful inspiration and creativity from the Design Team.

Special Sparkly Giveaway...




Just stopped by to let you know that The Ribbon Girl shop has some lovely new diamanté circle spacers in the store today, together with a selection of jewels and brads that go in the centre to create the most deliciously sparkly embellishments.  They are so new that even the ribbon girls haven't been able to create with them yet :(


To celebrate the arrival of these new embellishments there's a sparrkling giveaway with TWO prizes and TWO chances to win over on The Ribbon Girl Blog.  You've got until Friday 20th July to enter check out the Blog for all the details.



Storage Idea...




Time for another challenge over at Let's Craft and Create and the theme this fortnight is

Decoupage

For my DT project I've decoupaged a washing tablet box with scraps of vintage book paper. It's the perfect size to store my embossing folders.

Stars Stripes and more Crochet...



Here's my make for the Bubbly Scrumptious Blog.  A Congratulations card using star dies and stripy patterned paper.   As always there's a full supplies list and a guide to make it over HERE on the Bubbly Scrumptious Blog.


In other news, I'm still hooked on crochet.  Here's a snowflake I made at my class last week.  The yellow yarn was just to practice, now I'm happy with the pattern I'll be making some in white to decorate the tree and gifts this Christmas.   



And I have a list of projects as long as your arm I'd like to make, most of them from this fabulous book by Nicki Trench.  Don't you just love that tea cosy?
