Crazy Crafters and Pootlers December Blog Hop



This month our blog hop is extra special. The Crazy Crafters (an Australian team) are combining forces with the Pootlers (a UK team).

If you are not familiar with these guys I suggest that you take a look sometime soon as they all do some amazing blogging and some fab tutorials. A huge thank you to Kylie Bertucci and Sam Donald for organising this across the sea hop.

Our Blog Hop for December will be a Sneak Peek from the 2016 Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalogues. I am sure you are going to find some amazing projects.


You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Rosalie Desmond or may have come from Fiona Badley's blog. If you get off track at any time, the list of the full lineup is towards the bottom of this post.

For my project I created a wedge box out of basic black cardstock. The DSP I choose for this box is a sheet from the "It's My Party" designer series paper stack from the 2016 Occasions Catalogue which will be available for purchase from the 5th of January.


 
 
 
I then decorated the box using the "Botanical Builder Framelits" to create the flowers. These framelits are amazing. As you can see in the picture below the flower pops out. This is all done by the framelit I did nothing special to create this effect. So quick and simple.
 
I then used the silver mini brads to hold the flower pieces together, at the same time adding a touch of silver to the flower centres.
 
The leaves were also part of the Botanical Builder framelit set. However with these I heat embossed the veins in silver, using the "Botanical Blooms" stamp set. These two items will be available either individually or as a bundle.
 

PLEASE NOTE: These new items will be available for order from 5 January 2016 - 31 May 2016 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Thank you for stopping by. Please continue on and see the remainder of the blog hop.

    1. Thanks Fiona. They seem to be my got to colours. I have this box in mind for a particular person. I always think "elegance" when I think of her, so black and white was sure the way to go.
