A Friday Round-Up

Hello friends
Firstly - thank you Rita for claiming your prize yesterday,
Vintage Lace Accents are on their way to you.

Next I must announce the winner of Fanciful Flight...
the winner is....

Congratulations - please drop me an email with your address and I will post them out,
I could ask them to fly but not sure they would flutter in the right direction!

Sorry Bella did not pick out the winner (again!) I seem to type my blog posts very late at night or 
very early in the morning and she is snuggled in bed - I am way too soft I know! 

Today's craft project is a scrapbook page for Spellbinders.
It has just appeared in their Gallery so all the details are here.
I wanted the page to look like a pretty pin-board, I've used a variety of dies including Edgeabilities®,
the new A2 Scalloped Borders One and the very pretty Adorning Squares.
I just kept adding bits, layer upon layer and then finally a butterfly!

Now it wouldn't be a Friday unless something nice was happening....
this week I have a set of pre-loved Decorative Dress Forms dies to give away.

Some time back I created a little envelope gift bag using these.
Ideal for girlie cards etc.
Normal drill please - just leave a comment and I (or hopefully Bella this time) will pick out a winner.
Have a wonderful weekend dear friends.

Morning Christine
I love this page and all the dies you have used, they go so well together. The gift bag is so pretty too..
I thought of you yesterday watching the Hels Sheridan shows on C&C. She was using the Media Mixage Bezels with the melting pot, something very different!

Thank you for the chance of winning the dress forms, they look very interesting!
Have a lovely weekend and congratulations to Buttons.

Hi Christine, I like the gift bag idea. My partners Granddaughter has her 7th birthday at the end of the month. I think I will use this idea.

I already have these dies so no need to put my name in the hat (or whatever Bella, picks names from).

Hope you have a restful weekend.
Take care - Sally x

Sue B said...

What a pretty gift bag, always forget to use dies as closures & then see what you have done & think---why didn't I think of that----maybe that's why you are the professional & I am the amateur lol! Beautiful scrapbook page too.

Hi there Christine, finally (thanks to my nephew) got my head round the leaving a comment. Love the scrapbook page and the gift bag great ideas.

About to start work on 2 frames using the ideas from the brilliant Butterfly Frame workshop. My nephew and his partner have just moved house and i'm making the frames for their son, 4 years old and loves dinosaurs and their daughter, 2years old and loves anything pink so fairies and butterflies I think.

Take care Mary on the kent coast.x

Congratulations on making it through to the next round on the spellbinders DT! I love your scrapbook layout! I have just bought the Homespun die set as you keep using the little flower from it - addictive!
Thanks for the chance to win the little dress forms - they'd be a great addition to my collection so I hope that I'm lucky this time! Have a great weekend with your boys and Bella.

A lovely scrapbook page. Great use of the dies. Thanks for the chance to win the gorgeous dies.

Sandra said...

Aww I love that layout Christine, I can't believe it's Friday again already!
I hope you have something nice planned for the weekend.
My son has his first motor cross race this weekend, he wants us to go but I would be a nervous wreck! We encouraged him to do everything he wanted after being ill for so long! I am beginning to regret it now! But he saved for his bike and safety equipment all by himself, so I want to go to encourage him but I just don' t think I can bare to watch!
Well that's my weekend, hope your's is less stressful.
Hugs to all,
Sandra xx
