Funky Hand Blog Hop!!!


Hello there and welcome to another stop on the Funky Hand blog hop!  I'm so pleased to have you 'hopping' by!  You should have reached me from Paula's blog but if you're lost, or haven't a clue what I'm talking about, then head back to Anice's blog to find your way or to find out what all the fuss is about!

We're celebrating the release of the brand new Papercraft Factory CD...Twelve Crafter's Crafting (how ace is that name?!).  You can pre-order it now from the website ... official launch on 5th November.  Each of the people along the hop are showcasing one of the twelve paper collections from the Christmas themed CD....so you should be getting a good preview of what the CD has to offer!  On top of the paper collections there are masses of digi stamps, templates and all the usual fantastic features like the wordbook creator.

So, I've been having a play with the 'All I Want' paper collection which is a very traditional combination or reds, browns, greys and blacks. Here's what I have to show you today...here's the 'before' picture...


And the 'after' picture...


I've found that this particular collection goes so well with kraft card and I also made the pouches with pearlescent paper which I found to be super effective as well!  For this card I've used some leftover pieces from a wordbook (got to use up all those scraps!) which gives the papers a nice coloured border.  The pouches are so simple to do.  I followed the instructions here. They're so cute and can be made in any size...perfect for those little Xmas treats!

The next stop on the hop from here is Katina's blog. Remember to qualify for entry to win a copy of the Twelve Crafter's Crafting CD you need to leave a comment on EVERY blog on the way, collect a letter from each blog and rearrange them to make a phrase.  Your winning guess needs to be left on Anice's blog before 12 Midnight on Sunday 30th October.

The letter you need from me is...

Got that noted down?  Left me a comment?  Then off you 'hop' to Katina's blog

Thanks for 'hopping' by!

Oh Jenny, not only does it look like some clever folding has been going down on here - but there is chocolate involved... the best of both worlds here... crafting and chocolate...!

Anyway, here's to a successful blog hop;
