Chameleon Color Tones pens Giveaway winner announcement

Hi Everyone, sorry I've been so quiet on here lately, but I've been crazy busy being mum, educator and also dealing with lots of computer problems :(  Hoping to see the end of the computer problems before long!

I am VERY overdue with some giveaway announcements, but today I'm onto it!  Recently I had an article published in Scrapbooking Memories Magazine featuring the new Chameleon Color Tones Pens.  These pens are SO much fun!  Here are the two layouts I created for it if you didn't get to see them:

Anyway I held a little giveaway with a small pack of the pens and so I am very excited to announce the winner!  I used the 'Random number generator' to work out the winner off the comments left on the post (not including mine)  And here is the winner:

These look like they would be a lot of fun My mind has gone into overdrive just thinking of how to play with them.

YAY to my announcement!  

Happy Crafting!

Spellbinders YUMMY Sapphire machine is doing the rounds

Hi Everyone today I am here to share with you some fun projects I have created with the new Spellbinders Sapphire collection.  This collection of dies makes creating so fun and easy and teamed up with the wonderful new entry level machine that looks OH SO CUTE it could not be more fun!

And you have a chance to get your hands on one for yourself!  More details on that at the end.

Currently Spellbinders have a blog hop with partnering companies sharing projects from all over three days.  I just adore the products these companies share with us and set about using them on my fun projects.  Along with these I used Spellbinders Sapphire Collection Die sets:

Basic Set B - PHS-503
Birds and Butterflies PHS-507

Butterfly Reverse Canvas

To create the canvas above perfect for a sweet gift start by turning your canvas around so you are working in the reverse area.
  • Add DecoArt® Gesso to all the inside and allow to dry.
  • Add some DecoArt® Modling paste over the staples and allow to dry
  • Cut/emboss the large butterfly from the Sapphire Birds and Butterflies PHS-507 set from different papers in the My Mind's Eye 'Fancy that' collection
  • Add a little colour with Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® Gelatos in metalic melon to the white areas of any butterfiles
  • Adhere butterflies using Beacon 3-in-one all purpose Adhesive
  • Now wrap and give to that special person!
See you don't need to do much with these sweet die sets to create beautiful projects!

  • Layer more My Mind's Eye 'Fancy that' collection papers onto a whitle cardstock base
  • Add some splatter from the Imagine Crafts® Tangelo Fireworks spray

  • Cut/emboss the large tag from the Basics B Set PHS-503 from white cardstock
  • Stamp your 'Happy Birthday' sentiment from the Kaisercraft 'Pop Quotes' clear stamp set with the Tsukineko® Tuxedo Black StazOn ink pad.
