Crafty Ribbons Easter Bunny Hop

Hello!  Happy Easter!  You should have arrived here at stop two of our Bunny Hop from the CR INSPIRATION BLOG.

Today's showcase of ribbons also includes a Bunny Hop, so if you have just popped by to say hello to me and would like to join in with the hop you will need to start at the very beginning which is on the
CR Inspiration blog.   Hop around the DT blogs in the order they are listed and leave them a comment. While you are hopping around please watch out for the lovely little bunny/bunnies which is/are hiding away and make a note of whose blog/s they are on so that when you return to the Inspiration blog you can link up with your name and which blog/s you saw the bunny/bunnies.....GOOD LUCK!

I bought this wire heart cage from Panduro a good while back.  One of those things that you buy thinking you will turn it in to a masterpiece and then sit and stare at for a few months!  Any way I thought I'd give it a whirl and used paper flowers from my stash to fill it up.  Now, I don't use tonnes of flowers so the few that I had were not the correct colour, so I got my inks and promarkers out and got messy and made them the correct colour!  I added diamantes as the flower centres for a little bit of bling.

The butterflies and the two banners are from the Chilled Cucumber Soup collection by Jilly Bean.  And the ribbon, perhaps my most favourite ever ribbon, is part of the baby washing collection from Crafty Ribbons.

I'd like to enter this project in to these challenges

  19. Hi Laura, I am doing the hop, and while I am here I will tell you that I think your heart is gorgeous and perfect for our Quirky challenge, thanks for entering!
    It is difficult to say which is my favourite essential tool, I guess my rotary trimmer is essential because I can't cut a straight line! I love my die cutter and use it all the time, so that could be it too! My ATG gets used on every project just about although I have a box of alternative adhesives. So which is most essential? I will say the trimmer lol.

    My favorite essential tool would have to be my Cuttlebug - I love dies and embossing folders and I need my Cuttlebug to use them. If something hapened to my Cuttlebug I would run right out and get another one! Wishing you a joyful day!

  23. Gorgeous creation, very very original!

Hello, Happy Whats On Your Workdesk Wednesday !  As promised a picture of last Wednesdays 'work' finished off.  Post and more photos here . This week I'm showing off the beaded ATC I made... Tricky to photograph so your getting one with flash and one without... It was all parcelled up and sent off to Queen of Desks Julia .  Here is a basic of how it was made... (lots of waffle about wefts and warps!) I use a flexible beading needle.  It is mainly 'eye' so it is very easy to thread. And delica beads which are more regular and accurate than the better known seed bead.  They are slightly more rectangular than round so they line up better. Thread your needle with the weft thread.  (The cross ways thread that weaves back and forth.)  Pick up the beads... Pass the needlefull of beads underneath the warp (tight length ways) threads on the loom... ...and push each bead up in the corresponding g


Hoppity hoppity!!  :) Hopeful you have arrived here from Fleur 's blog as part of the Crafty Ribbons Easter Hop .  If not and you've found yourself here wondering what on earth I'm on about (and let’s face it J you wouldn’t be the first!!) check out the Inspirations site for all the juicy details! My project for the hop is         Easter bunting!  I cut three templates first - a triangle pennant, a bird and a heart.        Then I cut the pennant shapes from fibre ribbon, threaded them on to some 3mm satin and evenly spaced them.  I embellished each flag with some beads...       I backed the birds and heart on some thin white card and glued them to the centre of the pennants.   My supplies list: yellow fibre , pink fibre , lime fibre , 3mm satin , button box , white card, glue, beads, needle and thread.   At each stop on the hop there'll be a word to collect and a candy draw. I've got these

WOYWW & Card Deck Swap

First up is my desk ... Hmm.  Perhaps the less said the better!  I really should have a sort out but I fancy desking instead! Next I want to share my card deck swaps (deskers don't have to stay for this bit but I reckon you'd enjoy joining in with us, which is why I'm including it in this post) You can read about the swap here on Jessica's blog and sign up here .  Basically, we take a deck of cards, add paint and/or paper, then add a positive sentiment to each card.  Post them to Jessica who shuffles them and sends back 52 different cards from different artists (yes, you are an artist!) from all over the world. These few are ones I have picked out to display first.  I'll swap them round after a few weeks.  Do you like my domino pegs?  :) Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you'll at least consider joining us for the card swap - it's like a super sized ATC swap, and all WOYWW er's know they are fun! See you at your desk x
