Hi everyone.  Firstly, a huge thank you to all who took part in our Heart Felt challenge.  We thoroughly enjoyed looking at your projects.  The winner of our BasicGrey Paper Pad as chosen by random org number generator is No.1, Diane.  Congratulations Diane.  Please email Mandy your address and we'll get that in the post to you. challenge #13 is as the title suggests, absolutely anything so long as it's not a card!  Let your imaginations run wild!

....and now for some exciting news!  We have the lovely Vicky joining us as our Guest Designer for this challenge.  Vicky's creations are stunning and so inspirational.  I'll let her tell you more about her project below...



I’ve ‘upcycled’ a plastic container into a birthday gift box.  I’m going to fill it with a card making kit, just some simple card making supplies for a newbie card maker. 

To take a peek inside, and see more of Vicky's fabulous creations visit her blog here.


In my daughters class the children are all asked to donate a box of tissues for the year.  This week I have decided to cover a tissue box.  I used this cute paper and decorated it with ribbon and the flowers are made using the Marianne Creatable flower die.


I had gift boxes on my mind this week too!  I found this lovely Kraft box at Paperchase and knew it was perfect for altering.  As you can see I am still enjoying my Pink Petticoat Papers and Papertrey Ink Butterfly dies!

Pink Petticoat: Vintage Rose Papers.  Papertrey Ink: Love Lives Here Stamp Set, Love Lives Here Butterfly Die, Large Butterfly Die.  The Ribbon Girl: Seam Binding, Button, Natural Twine, White Lace

I have a couple more non-card items to share with you.  The first is a bookmark which I have packaged using a pretzel bag.... perfect size for these little projects!

A matching gift tag...

which together with a glassine bag make cute packaging!

Papertrey Ink: Love Lives Here Dies, Heart Print Collection Dies, Tag Sale #1 Die.  The Ribbon Girl: Natural Jute Ivory Button Twine, Natural Lace.  Graphics Fairy: Postcard Image. Craftie Charlie:  K & Co Bailey Papers. 

Our giveaway for this challenge is a metre of lovely natural lace and 5 Pink/Silver Filigree Fancy Pins.
