Paper or Not?

Hello, here we are hurtling towards another weekend and I am here to shout about the first 



Our theme this time is

Paper or Non-Paper projects...simples.

I enjoy most crafts including sewing, knitting  and am actually crocheting a throw at the moment (my biggest project yet!!), however I LOVE paper and stamping most of all. There is so much scope with paper, the possibilities are almost endless.

We are sponsored by


who are offering a £10.00 spend!!

I made a gift bag using Ballerina Isla and some more papers that came free with a magazine. She was coloured with Promarkers to match. The sentiment came with her and I just added a coordinated bloom to the banner for a bit of decoration.



Another gift bag to put away for when the need arises.

I'd like to join in at these challenges

  7. Pretty, pretty, pretty, Sarah! Love that gorgeous image and your pink/kraft combo is one of my faves!
    I’m a paper person too. I love cross-stitch and knitting but my success in both is sadly lacking. I have been working on the same Christmas jumper for the last 2 years!!! :) xxx
