Bad Blogger - but lots of stuff in this post :o)

Yep, I know I'm a bad blogger (I've been told off), I'm making up for it now with this rather substantial post :o)

If you haven't already, pop over to Charmed Cards & Crafts and take a look, we have LOADS of new goodies in, including Basic Grey Euphoria, FOUR collections form Cosmo Cricket: Hello Sunshine, Cogsmo, Get Happy and Honey Pie, a gorgeous collection from Imaginisce, All kinds of happy, superb for all your birthday projects, plus other goodies from Around the Block, Making Memories and of course Louise Brigden's new download collection. Ooohh it's all so GORGEOUS!! Click here for our newsletter.

We have even more projects. Caroline and Tracie have both created some more for you. Click here for the design team projects.







To finish off, here are the latest cards I have created for the challenges on Dottie's World using our downloads. Click here for Dottie's World.



This one was for Juliet's "Pick a Letter" challenge. I chose P for: Punk George, paper, pen, purple, pink, petals, paint and POEM (read it and weep!). I took the opportunity to use one of the new Basic Grey Euphoria papers here. I also used Button Bonanza buttons, Acrylic Paint, Prima Essential 4 flowers, Dovecraft and Basic Grey brads, American Crafts Ribbon, Bazzill cardstock. A normal biro was used to doodle around the edge.





The next three was from my own sketch challenge:



Dottie and George Christmas downloads, Basic Grey Figgy Pudding papers, Basic Grey buttons and brads. "Joy" is K&CO Adhesive chipboard.



Dottie downloads, Basic Grey Figgy Pudding papers, Cuttlebug "Snowflakes" embossing folder, K&Co adhesive chipboard "Christmas".


Basic Grey Sugared papers, Basic Grey fibres, K&Co Wild Saffron paper ribbon, K&Co Adhesive Chipboard "General Birthday", Basic Grey Sugared papers, Basic Grey fibres, K&Co Wild Saffron paper ribbon, K&Co Adhesive Chipboard "General Birthday".


...... and the final one was Louise's "Holes" challenge where I used Bazzill cardstock, my Snowflakes Cuttlebug embossing folder, mesh and ribbon, plus some Prima flowers and a Dovecraft Funky Christmas brad. There is a lot more going on inside the card with several of the download images.


All products used are of course available to buy at Charmed Cards & Crafts.
