Eggstravaganza and a Love Letter

Just Magnolia Challenge

A Basket/Box for Easter

Its the First challenge of that month that means we ask a guest designer to choose a theme and make a tutorial for us, this month we have the fabulous super talented Lena Katrine as our guest and she has created a tutorial for the most stunning Easter Basket, to see Lena Katrine's tutorial just click Here.

It is not necessary for you to follow the tutorial and we would be pleased to see any type of Basket or Box as long as you use a Magnolia Image. Of course as usual with out Monthly Tutorial our fantastic sponsor is Heidi from Simon Says Stamp.

When we saw the tutorial we (the DT) were a bit afraid of attempting it but to be honest Lena Katrine has written such a brilliant tutorial that the baskets really are very easy to make and – a word of warning – are rather addictive too! My little creation is just a shadow of some the the beautiful baskets and boxes created by my fellow DT members please pop over to the challenge site it would be a shame if you missed them.

I Love this Tilda with Tulips, must remember to use her more, she has been coloured with Distress Inks with added Glamour Dust. Lots of MS punches used on here too.

Of course the flowers come from Wild Orchid Crafts .

Wags'n Whiskers Challenge


We are asking you to use metal somewhere on your card or project. This could be charms, spacer beads, head pins, brads or any metal embellishment.

To play our challenges you must use a Wags 'n Whiskers Rubber Stamp as your main image to be entered into the prize drawing.

This gorgeous image is called "With Love", and is just so sweet, she has been coloured with Copics, the papers are Imaginise, Small Medium and Large Retro Flower punches have been used for the flowers.

I am off to Durham now until Wednesday, I will try to schedule my posts but will be unable to visit you and leave comments, hope I am excused. Hope you all have a truly brilliant weekend.
Thanks for looking
Jacqui xx
