So, to celebrate my 200th blog post, I thought I'd have a giveaway... but this is a giveaway with a difference.
Last week, I got to work making some embellishments: a little lace, a bit of the old tape measure, a button or butterfly or two, maybe some text paper, a spot of stitching.... and the all important paper clip. And here's what I've come up with:
Each one is slightly different but they all follow a similar design with a scalloped circle and a little tag, combined with snippets of lace or ribbon and an embellishment or two. Each one also features a paper clip. They can be glued to things permanently or you can use the paper clip to simply to clip them to something, and take it off when you've had enough!
The giveaway challenge is this: all you have to do is request an embellishment and I will send one winging its way to you through the post. Then, you need to do something with it, whether that's include it on a scrapbook page, a minibook, a card...even just using it as a bookmark counts! Whatever you do, however you use it, snap a picture or two and get ready to blog it. All being well, I can then set up a bloghop so we can all admire your work! Interested? Just scroll down for the details.
But first, a little inspiration. Not my final project, but a work in progress :D
Below are the nuts and bolts of the thing. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch!
- If you want to take part, drop me an email at kirsty dot merran at googlemail dot com. Or leave a comment with your email address if you prefer. Either way, let me know what address you'd like me to post your embellishment to! Make sure you include your country if you're outside the UK!
- Wednesday 31st August is the last day for emailing - I hope to get the embellishments made and posted out by the beginning of September.
- Assemble a project. It doesn't matter how big or small, but it must include the embellishment somewhere. Absolutely anything goes! Well, apart from throwing it in the recycling.
- You have until Friday 16th September to get it ready, snap a picture and put together a blog post ready to publish. I'll email anyone who wants to play along nearer the time and organise the blog hop for Saturday 17th September, and all the posts will go live together.
I really hope you can take part - it doesn't have to take hours. I've never done anything like this before so I'd really love it if lots of people could join in, in any way at all! One of the things I love most about projects like this is seeing the hugely different interpretations people have on the same idea :D
So. Have I whetted your appetite?
P.S. If you mention this on your blog, let me know and I'll send an extra embellishment your way! It's a good way to get people involved (I hope :D)
