Best Creation Blog Hop.

Welcome to all those participating in the first ever Best Creation blog hop. You should have arrived here from Jona's blog. If this is your first stop please go to the Best Creation blog to start and make sure you visit all the hop stops!

It's our first blog hop at Best Creation today and all of us are excited to show you lots of fabulous projects for the upcoming Holiday and we are giving 1 lucky person a chance to win $100 worth of Best Creations products and a second person a chance to win our Valentine Collection of papers and stickers! How wonderful is that!!

Best Creation have such beautiful papers and are obviously known for their glittered papers, and who doesn't love a bit of glitter...especially as Christmas time.

To make a simple, but eye catching table centrepiece for Christmas, arrange some pillar candles on a white decorative plate. Cut strips from your chosen papers and adhere horizontally to your candle using a Helmar tape runner. Cut flowers from the Best Creation papers in varying sizes. Shape them, then layer together with Helmar zap dots. Adhere them to the candles, along with some spiral and punched flowers.

To complete the blog hop, you will have already collected a series of letters to create our winning word. The final letter is...

Helmar blogging

Over the last couple of weekends I have had my first posts on the Helmar blog, so I can share those projects on here now too.

Check out the blog here, to see how I made the title.

Here's the second one.

See the blog post here.

Best Creation are running a Holiday blog hop, starting tomorrow. There are some great prizes to be won, so it would be great to have lots of friends playing along. (It's international).
Here's a sneak at the prizes on offer:

It all starts on the Best Creation blog at See you there.

Christmas Card Sets

So, I have been making Christmas card sets for sale this year. I mostly go through facebook, but I know that not everyone is on there, so I thought I would post them here to. If you see something you like, you can purchase through my Made It store or you email me directly at

Each set is $15 +P&H and includes 5 handmade cards (no two ever the same), plus envelopes, plus 5 matching gift tags.

New month of challenges at Scrapping Outback.

Oops, I'm a few days late with these, but the challenges go for the whole month, so it's all good.

I had the sketch challenge this month. it was really nice to create a sketch again. It's been a very long time.

I also had the DT mini kit this month, which had very pretty Prima flowers with multicoloured paper flowers. I made some cute little quilled butterflies out of the patterned paper.

You have until the end of the month to complete the challenges and upload to the SO gallery to earn store credit.

there is also a cybercrop coming up, with some great challenges, games and of course prizes.
