2.  Make up a challenge and create a project based on that challenge.
3.  Share both the inspiration kit & your kit, your challenge, and your project on your blog. E-mail us the link to

I found this Bellaboo kit

Spring Jubilee May Kit

 I see butterflies, birds, white letters, soft pretty ribbons and bunting.

This is the kit I have pulled... I've swapped the dominant colour from pink to the citrus shades.  4 sheets of 6x6 (Maggie Holmes and Prima Free Spirit), brads, paper clip, eyelets, white 12x12, lace and ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, glitzy white alphas (which I've just discovered didn't make it in to any of the photos).

My challenge is to use eyelets.  I have a few packs.  I never use them.  I've even put them in to kits I've made and still not used them!  This time will be different...

Here are some details...

And here is the layout;

What do you think?  How do you use your eyelets?

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Fab LO. I love the colour change and those little bird brads are so cute.

    Hope you've had a good start to the week.

  2. You have done a wonderful job on this. Eyelets are a challenge in themselves.I love those bird brads too.

  3. Oh Laura I so chuckled when read this post. Prob supposed to be commenting on another one...but when read it had to comment

  6. Great looking kit and fab page - love the eyelets along the bottom! Good luck with the competition x

  7. Well done on a lovely page kit and a great challenge. It made me smile that you chose a Bellaboo kit! I used to be on the DT back in the early days 2007-2009 when my sister was the first owner! Small world. Great use of those pesky eyelets. I have to admit that I threw all mine out rather than find a way to use them.

  8. You chose some lovely papers & pretty ribbons & brads.
    Thanks for your entry!

  9. I like that you made the kit your own with a color twist. Great job on the eyelets - your page is wonderful.

  10. Super pretty kit and a great layout too - maybe I should join in your challenge with the many 100s of eyelets I have! Good luck!

  11. Love pretty and subtle.

  12. Congrats to you :) Lovely kit and I just love the eyelets being used for a border so fun :) I'll be joining in with the challenge I have lots of eyelets

  13. Beautiful layout. Love how you added the eyelets. Congrats!

  14. Pretty kit and very clever way to use the eyelets! I seldom use eyelets, I always seem to use them in "dated" ways. Your technique is very current. Love it!

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
