Make It Crafty Special Celebrations!

 Morning Peeps,

We have something special going on for you today.   Make it Crafty is turning ONE!! 

Woohooo – The celebrations have begun at Make it Crafty!!!

We are excited today to be sharing this celebration with Quixotic Paperie, who were the very first company to take on the Make it Crafty line of stamps, laser cut embellishments and now the Make it Colour blending card.

Quixotic Paperie are celebrating too! It has been their two year anniversary celebrations for the month of June!

To celebrate we thought, rather than a blog hop we would set a CHALLENGE using Make it Crafty products!!

To get inspired, hop on over to the Make it Colourful challenge blog where you will see the amazing creations our fabulous DT’s have created for this event! PLUS find out all the details on how you can play along! You have until 30th July to enter, so plenty of time to get more than one entry in, hehehe.

For my project and of course being the MIC Embellishment Queen I have created a project based on the  "No image and Lasercut Chipboard pieces only" category showing off all those gorgeous Lasercut Chipboard Embellishments that you all know I love and praise to the hilt. Warning, lots of photos to follow..........

All of my lasercut chipboard pieces have been painted using Making Memories Acrylic paint using different colours.

The papers are gorgeous Pion papers, my new favourite.  I did the fancy stitching using my sewing machine.

I have used the following lasercut chipboard embellishments:-

Butterfly leaves
Flower leaf swirls
Fancy Ribbon Sliders
Flower leaf Frames
Butterfly Swirls


There are FIVE challenge categories and there will be FIVE GRAND WINNERS!


There will be random winners throughout the whole month. The numbers have been pre-selected and as soon as an entry is added that matches that number they WIN! Winners will be announced soon after entry on the sidebar of Make it Colourful.

PLUS there’s MORE!!

Quixotic Paperie have a little something for you too!! Make sure you pop on over to HERE to enter your name for a chance at MORE Make it Crafty Goodies!!


Zoe, the owner of Make it Crafty has a super duper HUGE Candy give away – choc-a-block FULL of Make it Crafty goodies!! AND I have heard a whisper that she is planning on having random giveaways on her blog throughout the month of July! All you need to do is leave her some love as she’ll randomly be choosing people who have commented on her posts throughout the last year!!


You’ll also receive a set of steak knives when you... hahaa ONLY Joking BUT... for THREE DAYS ONLY you’ll be able to get 40% off Make it Crafty Digi Stamps when you enter the coupon code: CELEBRATE (Ends 28th June).
