Hopscotch with Adornit - Day 1

Tuesday, December 7, 2010

Welcome to Day 1 of the Adornit blog hop and our fun game of 'hopscotch' that will have you hopping your way through a crafty bunch of gals to spy their creations using the beautiful and romantic 'Misty' collection from Adornit!
I will admit, my first introduction to Adornit 'Carolee's Creations' was the tiny Alpha stickers which I use on so many of my projects and I think I have one in every colour produced. I have now been introduced to the Adornit Misty collection and I must say I'm seriously hooked.


I have a very firm love of 'fussy cutting' and the Misty papers have lots to cut, it's not often you find prints that will allow you to cut out full flowers and leaves with intricate detail in such beautiful thick quality paper... it was a delight!



I really enjoyed playing with the Misty 'Clear Stickers'... I placed them onto thick clear acetate to provide extra strength and fussycut each piece and applied to the card with clear gel adhesive.

 



Quality assured... I was so impressed with the ribbon which had a beautiful finish, gorgeous patterns, bold & true colours and a really firm hold when tying a bow... superb!


So who would like to have a beautiful collection of the Adornit 'Misty' range all to themselves... by simply leaving a comment on each of the Designers blogs (including mine) and finishing with a comment on the Adornit blog you will be entered into the draw where one lucky participant will take home a fabulous Misty prize package. 
Now todays hopscotch line-up is as follows so if you haven't started at the beginning, don't worry you can pop back to the top of the list and visit those blogs you've missed and finish at the Adornit blog to let them know you've had a fun time hopping around the creations.


From farm to you...
