Crafty Creations Challenges - #158 Fancy Folds

 Naughty Blogger - playing up on me AGAIN!! I couldn't get my post done on Wednesday - had to wait until my IT genius returned today - WHAT would I do without him!!!!!

Anyway....the theme this week at Crafty Creations Challenges is.....

Fancy Folds

I watched a video of Teresa Collins making this dinky lil 4"x4" mini matchbook album from ONE sheet of 12"x12" patterned paper.  I had to give it a go straight away!!

I used this yummy pink spot paper by Girls Paperie, accented with a few die cuts from October Afternoon, a gem from Recollections, sentiment from Cornish Heritage (I'm almost sure!!) and FOLDED some Pink Paisley tissue paper to create that lil pleat!  With the great instructions it was very easy and FUN!
 As you can see I still have to decorate the insides.....
This is how it all folds up - so cute!!  I left out one of the inside strips to allow some "bulk" from embellishments etc!!

Our fab sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish - so please join in and show us your Fancy Folds for your chance to win a fab prize! bx

Crafty Creations Challenges - #156 Swirly Whirly

This week we have a fun new challenge for you at Crafty Creations Challenges - here it is:

Swirly Whirly

Claire set this week's challenge - and she is also generously sponsoring (Hope Jacare Doodles) this week too!!  She kindly gave the team some images to play with - I loved this wise ol' owl as soon as I saw him!

I coloured "oh wise one" with copics, and thought that wood finish paper (My Mind's Eye) worked well as the background. I added a few pearl swirls to the card to continue the swirly theme, couple bits of trim, added a die-cut kinda swirly edge to his mat and I think that's it!

For your chance to win our fab prize this week come and show us your swirly projects! bx
