Hi Everyone, Once again thank you to everyone who entered our 'Lets Get Krafty' Challenge there were some really great entries and to see if made the top 3 please check the Ooh La La Challenge blog
Our theme this time is ....
Pretty in Pink
For my DT piece this time I used the Paula Oakley Collection CD and you can purchase your copy by clicking on the link below.
This is actually one of the sample pieces I made for the launch of the CD on Create and Craft
I used the image from the Hearts and Laces folder on the CD and the plaid backing paper is from the same folder the pink 'textured' paper is from the bonus papers folder.
The bag was one I had left over after making the gift bags for my two youngest grandsons' Christenings
I started by cutting the pink textured paper in two and sticking it top and bottom of a plain white A 4 card that I had run through a patchwork embossing folder. I resized the image to make it larger and used a large oval die to cut it out and used double sided foam tape to stick it to the centre of the panel.I die cut the lettered bunting from white card and backed this with green card before arranging it underneath the oval and securing it. The teddy and 'baby Girl' were cut from white card stock and added to the panel.
Once I had completed the panel I stuck it to the bag using super sticky tape. I then positioned the bunting along the top and cut a length of lace which I secured behind the bunting and then stuck this along the top panel. The flowers and heart pins are from my stash.
On the back of the bag I used another of the backing papers from the Hearts and Laces folder and wrapped ribbon threaded lace top and bottom before securing to the bag. I added a strip of white card that had been embossed through a Patchwork embossing folder. I die cut three hearts in decreasing sizes from white, and green card stock and the plaid backing paper and hen attached this to the centre of the patchwork strip.
I added a die cut sentiment to the heart and then covered a plain white tag with the plaid paper and added a die cut teddy bear, before looping the tag round one of the handles. I added some white die cut butterflies and tied pink and white organza ribbon bows around the base of the handles on each side.
I am entering this into the following challenge
