BIA Maze books

In all my excitement of doing my first project for sprinkles and the forum, i completly forgot about posting pics for the maze books. You can find a full set of instructions on sprinkles here and the forum here. So pop on over and have a look.

Here are a few piccies to tide you over, lol.

Back soon with some more BIA projects. I hoping to do another swap soon and organise some BIA challenges over on the forum.

Stash Bash over on Carolinez Craftz Forumz

How many of us have massive ribbon collections. If like me you are a self confessed ribbon addict then you will have loads of spare ribbon and scraps to play around with. Why not jump over to the forum to see the loverly creations Paula has come up with. Ingenius ways to use your ribbon. The DT has joined i as well.

Here is my attempt. I used a Prima Paintable which i lovingly sat and painted, not. It was hard going but sat in front of the tv it was a nice relaxing time.

Here is the paintable before i used it on the LO.

And here is the finished LO. I made all my little flowers from ribbons.

If you fancy having a go with your ribbon stash, head on over to the Wonderful forum.

That me folks, more essay to do.

See you later

I am sooooooo peeling the love

Firstly for the good news, that's an understatement, fantastic news. I am a Sprinkles girl. I got a PM from Caroline asking me if i'd like to come on board the dream team. After i summersaulted around the room for a while I stopped jumping up and down like a nutter, I replied with a big fat yes.

Of course i would, i love the shop (spend too much money on all Caroline's scrummy stash, the forum is my second home and i love sprinkles for daily inspiration.

I can't wait to get started. I have done some cute little BIA projects recently which are going live soon. And i will be running a BIA challenge as well.

Caroline has some loverly, funky, blingy peel off's. Now anyone who knows me, will know i hate peel off's. The yucky, gold and silver, granny peel off's as i fondly refer to them.
But Carolines are just georgeus.

Here is a LO i made at the weekend. I used the blingy crowns, black brackets and funky flowers. I love how it turned out.

I am snowed under at the moment with essays and lab reports so may not be around this week much.

But plus side its my crop at the weekend. I need to do two elsie challenges and three A to Z challenges

Off for inspiration

TFL as always

Elsie Flannegan challenges

Here is the next installment of my challenges.

Number 5 was to embellish a bloom. I hand drew some spots on a large bloom, versa stamped and embossed with clear ultra thick embossing powder. The little ones were stamped with a swirly stamp with staz on and again embossed.

The Lo is about me new glasses. Not sure on these yet, I look a bit nerdy. \Dan bless him said i looked very intelligent. Which I am of course.

The next challenge was to use a cluster of ribbon. I used 7 ribbons as a frame around the picture. I then attached a large safety pin with homemade chipboard embellishments dangling down.

i hand painted my background cs to make a stunning backdrop to the quite plain LO. I chose red for a romantic touch as its valentine. It was a hint to DH but i should be so lucky!!!!!!!

Oh and my special news, me and mum are off to Amsterdam, to scrap-a-ganza, so exciting. will put some bits on when we get more information.

And i have made a start on organising publicity for the Aberdeen Craft Group big event, scrap Attack. Will put more bits on again when its confirmed.

that's all folks

Take care
