Sisters, Friends

*** Don't forget about my giveaway! ***

The challenge for this month over at UnstampaBelles is 'Paper Flowers'. I have used both die-cut flowes and made some of my own blooms from dress-pattern paper, as well as making some lace flowers for variety. You can create any kind of papercraft you like for this challenge, you're just not allowed to use any stamps in the design. There is a great prize up for grabs from Blue Edge Crafts:

There are paper tole sheets, stickers, ribbon roses and butterflies, a Spellbinders Tulips Pendant die and not shown will be a special pack of our new flower paper.


Since this is a double LO you have probably also guessed that this was created to be entered into the Gold Coast Show. This will be my entry for the Heritage category. The photos are my mother and aunt when they were 6 and 4 back in 1966. Their aunt took them as part of a photo shoot and I think they are just adorable. As soon as I saw them I just knew I had to use the Lil Primrose range from Kaisercraft with them. I thought using their 'collections' pack would make things easier, but I decided I didn't like the white border around all the pieces so I ended up hand-cutting every single one again!



Chipboard is all by Scrapmatts. The lace flowers I made, they are really so easy to do and look so effective. I think I'm slowly getting the hang of building up multiple layers in my clusters. The one above in particular has a fair bit going on.


I've still got two more doubles and a single LO to do for the Show before the end of the month and I really want to get a chance to play over the Olympiad so I'm going to head back to my crafting desk now. Hope you have a great week!

PS: Here is the prize pack up for grabs at UnstampaBelles. Go check out entering, it looks fantastic!
