LLC January Challenge and Some Exciting News



Happy New Year to all my Friends and Followers

Wishing you Health, Happiness, Friendship and Good times in 2014


It's the 1st January 2014 and time for Live and Love Crafts first challenge of the year and before I give you the theme I have some exciting news to share with you.

I am an SNR Class Instructor


This is very exciting for me and will make sure I get those tutorials done that you all keep asking me about.  For those of you who have not heard of SNR (Scrapbook News and Review), here'a a little about them.

Scrapbook News and Review Magazine is the largest online paper crafting magazine in the world. Each month, we offer over 200 original pieces of artwork, including layouts, cards, stamped items, mixed media and altered art and home décor projects as well as a wealth of other inspiring projects and ideas.

We also offer in-depth articles, product reviews, and fun and practical technique tutorials complete with pictures and step-by-step instructions to guide you throughout the whole creative process. Even more, we have an online classroom that offers classes in every category and style to fit the needs of crafters from the beginner to the more advanced, and all classes are taught by passionate instructors with a desire to teach and share. No matter what your style or skill level, you’ll always find a class to fit your needs.

My first tutorial will be of the swinging baby cradle with cot mobile and vintage drawers set in a nursery scene, do you remember this?  Well on Friday 3rd January my video tutorial will be going live, eeek, so you'll be able to follow me every step of the way.



I have also in the making a second tutorial on how to make the Lace Book below which is also my project for the LLC January challenge.  If you are interested in this tutorial don't worry I will be back to let you know when it will be going live.  I'd also appreciate knowing if there is anything specific you would like me to do a tutorial on, just leave me a comment or email me.


Oops, nearly forgot to tell you what the LLC challenge theme is.   Well the challenge is perfume.  Interpret as you wish.  I have took a picture of Jean Paul Gaultier's perfume

There are so many ideas I had with this picture, chic, elegant, beautiful and of course the fabulous shape of the bottle, so I put it altoghether and arrived at this beautiful lace book.  The dress was created using Maya Design crea papers and like the bottle, goes in at all the right places, lol.  I have also picked up the colours of black and pink.


I tried to co-ordinate the all the embellishments to black, white and a dash of pink and just love the result.



The gorgeous flowers were complimented with the black berries, so perfect for this project.

Stunning work; I can imagine your sis was very happy to receive this one! But what I don't understand is how you can bear to separate from your lace books? On the other hand; lace never gets old in your stash, so you don't really need the books, I suppose. :-) Thanks for great inspiration.
