Happy Birthday Crafters Companion!

Well, it's finally here, the 11th Birthday party for Crafters Companion and everyone's invited!

OMG, you are so in for a treat, there are some incredible new launches coming (click here for the fabby brochure) - this is really amazing, it's their birthday, but we all get the presents!

Now, speaking of presents, one of the special events for this year's party is a blog hop, which begins at midday today, you need to head here to get all of the information and details of all the other blogs involved, but essentially we are playing pass the parcel with blogs.  When the music stops, you will be asked to go and visit a specific blog and leave a comment during the time period given.  From the commenters, a winner will be chosen...... and the prize, you get to win what's been made and shown on the blog post!  There are some amazing prizes on offer...


And so, as I'm taking part in this incredible event, here's what I've made for your delight:









 Please excuse the ton of photo's I took, but I really wanted to give you a sense of the size.  Each of these hexagonal boxes is 4 inches high (made with the brilliant big score), and they are actually independent boxes so if you win, you could use them as 3 separate gift boxes.  This gives you a taster of one of the launches during birthday week, which is some incredible (very strokable) A3 double sided Centura Pearl cardstock, two everyday (Decadence and Regency), which I have used here, the Regency is the purple/lilac shades, and I've included a bit of the Decadence in the flowers, this has gorgeous cream and gold tones.  I've also used flowers, swirls, leaves and butterflies from Sara's signature collections, and a little bit of glitter cardstock (from the Luxury Card Pack - Silver).

Well, I really hope you like my make, and I hope even more that you'll keep checking the facebook page and join us hopping.

If you're lucky enough to win (hop is open until 30th October), please email details of your address to socialmedia@crafterscompanion.co.uk , who will arrange for your prize to be sent out (within 2 weeks)  Please keep checking on the blogs (there will also be some stunning makes using other new products from the Birthday launches on everyone's blogs) and facebook to see if you've won.

Okay, well I must be off to work now - have fun and enjoy the party!

Deirdre Percuval said...

Stunning colours used. The butterfly's and flowers really complement the boxes.

Misty Shaw said...

These are stunning it shows a novice like me what can be made using the ultimate pro and the various plates. I love the colours and the butterflys always make people happy. I can just imagine these with handmade bath bombs and soaps or cookies in them.

Tracey said...

Wow - what a gorgeous creation you have made - so CC purple but so so much more too with all the butterflies, flowers and other decoration. This is certainly something to keep - where the 'wrapping' is as exciting as what might be hiding inside
