DP2 challenge

Good morning all, I don't know how, but I lost a day this week... I thought today was Thursday oppsey.... so I am a little late in putting up my post for the new challenge that started yesterday, over at DP2,  (think I going senile lol)...   The challenge for the next three weeks, is NEW BEGINNINGS, so I have chosen this gorge image (aren't they all), by Mo Manning, called Bride and Groom Dancing.
I bought the new butterfly die, whilst I was away staying with my bestie, and couldn't wait to use it,  I have to say, she had the perfect embossing folder to go with it as well. :)  I have left a small space at the bottom so that I can personalise it if needed at a later date.  I also raided my friends stash for the feather and beads.  I did however use my own heart shape doily lol.. 
Right Im off to treble check what else I should have done yesterday.... as a tad worried now.. bound to have forgotten something else lol... Have a fabby weekend all.   Make sure you also pop by on FB and see all the wonderful creations everyone is making there too, at Bella and Brontes Clubhouse.
hugs Jackie

Design Team Call for Bearly Mine Designs

Bearly Mine Designs - Design Team Call May 2014

We have had a number of Design Team members leave and thought we need 3-4 more Design Team members. 
We are a friendly bunch and talk via a closed Blogger Admin Blog and a Facebook page. It is not a requirement to be part of the Design Team to be on Facebook but if you want a speedy reply to a question or like a daily natter that’s the place to be!!!
What are the commitments for the Design Team?
  • Bearly Mine Designs has a monthly challenge so you need to make a card/creation for that using Bearly Mine Designs digital papers. The challenge starts on the 1st of the month. Your card/creation needs to be posted onto the closed Admin Blog at least 2-3 days before the start of the challenge so that the Design Team Leader can get the challenge post ready.  Your card/creation needs to go "live" on your own blog on 1st of the month
  • There is also a rota so that every two days an inspiration card goes on the blog and you will be required to make a card for that. For this card you can make whatever you want as long as you use Bearly Mine digital papers. You will be required to do your own post and schedule it to go “live” on the Bearly Mine Design Challenge Blog on your day each month along with it going "live" on your own blog on the same day
  • This means that you are required to make two cards per month as part of the Design Team
  • In respect of the Challenge Blog there is a rota for comments. You will be allocated two numbers and you will need to comment on all cards/creations with those numbers. Commenting is a very important part of the Design Team as it gives everyone that enters a boost to see that their card/creation has been looked at
  • picks the main winner of the challenge but the Design Team pick their Top 3. You will need to put your Top 3 into the Admin Blog in a timely fashion so that the results can be counted and entered into the post going “live” for the next challenge on the 1st of the month
  • If there are any Bearly Mine Designs new sets to be released/ sales/special offers you will need to promote these on your blog and Facebook page (if you have one).

What will you get in return for being part of the Bearly Mine Design Team?
  • You will get to work with some stunning papers designed by Donna at Bearly Mine Designs
  • You will get to pick 4 sets initially to use and you can pick these from the Bearly Mine Designs Shop and just let us know which ones you want. We do this as everyone has different styles of cards/creations so we leave it to you to decide which papers would work best for you/what you would get most use out of
  • Whilst you are on the Design Team you will automatically receive any new digital paper sets that come out from Bearly Mine Designs
  • You will be part of a wonderful and friendly Design Team that is here for each other.
After reading the above would you like be a new member of the Bearly Mine Designs Design Team?
If the answer is “YES” please link one of your favourite cards/creations to the Inlinkz at Bearly Mine Challenge Blog  and do a post on your blog about the Design Team Call explaining why you would like to join the Design Team.

It is important that we have an e-mail address to contact you.  If this is not in plain sight on your blog please e-mail Kym  with an e-mail address.
The Design Team call will be open for two weeks from Saturday 10 May 2014 and ending on Friday 23 May 2014.  
All being well we will be in contact with those that apply from Monday 26 May 2014 onwards.  
We would not expect new Design Team members to make a card/creation for the challenge on 1 June 2014 but if you wanted to you could.  
An Inspiration Post would be appreciated in June 2014 and some existing Design Team Members could swap dates to facilitate this.  
We are a very friendly bunch of crafters!!!
If you have any questions before applying please contact me at this e-mail address.
We look forward to hearing from you.

Paper Piecing Tut for Bella and Bronte's Clubhouse

Good morning all... from Essex this time LOL... told you I was 'touring'.. :)

Today I am doing a simple Paper piecing tutorial for Bella and Bronte's Clubhouse,   I am using, 'Bossy' by Mo, who can be found HERE .  The papers I am using/used are Romance and Roses (scaled down) by Nitwits collection.

1. Start by stamping up/printing  the image onto your normal 'colouring' paper/card stock, I have used Whisper White, by SU, as I will be using copics to finish. 

2. Stamp up/print out the image again , onto a chosen paper of your choice, (This will be for the main part of the dress and sleeves)

 3. (As I want to use two different prints, I have printed the image again onto a co-ordinating paper. Which I will be using for the smock top and  panties.

4.  Cut out the parts required from the two images printed onto your dp's. (as below).

 5. Using a glue of your choice, pritt stick,  a wet glue, or glue pen, glue up the cut out pieces, and overlay, onto your first printed plain image.  (as below)
 6. Here is the finished image, with dress, smock and panties all  paper pieced, and image coloured with copics.

I hope that I have made this nice and easy for everyone to understand, if you have any questions, please leave in the comments box, and I will reply to you asap.

hugs Jackie xx
