A little bit more...

Been out shopping with my big sis today. Decided to go to our nearest HobbyCraft store thinking they'd have all the bits I'd want but you know what? I came out with just a couple of ribbons which weren't even on my list!! Grr. So suprised and really really disappointed :o( Feel like a child at Christmas that didn't get the one toy they asked for! I thought they'd sell all the leading brands like Tim Holst, Woodware and Dovecraft but they don't.Their prices are sky high too. Take the Cuttlebug machine for example; they charge £98.99 for it. I got mine online from a craft shop up north for half that price! Oh well, I'll just have to make my orders online - boo.

Anyway, I digress - as you'll soon discover I often do!

This fortnight's challenge on bee crafty is to create a project that's with 'a little bit more' ie. a bit OTT in some respect. I found this quite challenging but after a couple of days thought I decided on a red, black and white colour scheme and to overload on circles and dots.. and here is the result.............

~Crafty Ingredients~
Black scalloped cardstock~PaperMania
Black dotty paper~PaperMania Stampin Chic Pack
Image~Bee Crafty 'Bunny and Flowers' here; Sentiment~PaperMania Stampin Chic set
Ribbon~from stash
Flowers~XCut retro flower punch
Tools~ Spellbinders nestabilities (large circles and scalloped circles), Cuttlebug, Swiss dots embossing folder

I hope you like this one folks. I actually like this one which makes a change lol!
Thanks for stopping by for a crafty look,


  1. Glad you like this one, I think it is amazing. Such strong design with loads of interest, a great success! Thank you for producing this for Bee Crafty.
    Totally agree with you re HobbyCraft. They are overpriced and don't seem to be in touch with the crafting community at all (I also sourced my Cuttlebug recently online for significantly less.) If you have a 'The Range' nearby that's the place to go, all the top brands and reasonable prices, my crafting mecca!
