A little bit batty & an exciting reveal...

Monday, October 25, 2010

I've got so much going on at the moment that I'm going to have to double up on a couple of posts this week... but hey, atleast I get to share more projects!
Today over at Imaginisce I've teamed up with Liz and Aphra to create a wonderful recipe for you to make a Halloween card and enter the Imaginisce card challenge with two amazing prizes up for grabs... Imaginisce are giving away the complete range of Cottage Christmas and an i-rock with accessories just for making a Halloween card... how easy is that.
This is my sample card with four furry little bats!
So pop on over to the Imaginisce blog to have a look at Liz and Aphra's fabulous Halloween card creations and to find out all the ingredients to make your own Halloween card and be in the running for one of the terrific prizes on offer by Imaginisce.
Seriously exciting news...
How many of you out there purchase kits to do your scrapping? There are so many different scrapbooking kit companies around that sometimes it gets a bit insane trying to choose which one to subscribe to and word-of-mouth usually helps make your decision allot easier, so...
Paper Poppy Kit Co. is owned and run by the delightful and very talented Aphra Bolyer who has an incredible eye for putting together the most beautifully inspirational kits. Each pack contains more product than you could possibly ask for and Aphra carefully chooses every individual item to create a perfectly balanced and co-ordinated assortment of 'scrappy goodness'.
And I'm delighted to say that she has given me a wonderful opportunity to be a guest designer for her company using the October Kit which boasts a fabulous combination of Lily Bee Catching Fall and Pink Paislee Old School. The colours and textures in this kit oozed autumn tonings in hues of yellow, orange, red and brown with a hint of winter chill in combinations such as reds, teals and browns. Not to mention some of the most darling embellishements... itty bitty black board and wooden ruler to run with the school theme along with corrugated flowers, pins, thread, ribbon, chipboard to name just a few.
And my first project was to create a layout using the monthly sketch designed by Aphra herself and to use a number in the title....

For more closeup pics and info on the products I've used take a peak over at Paper Poppy Kit Co. along with gaining some fabulous inspiration from the gorgeous projects by Aphra and her incredibly talented team.

From farm to you...
