Special project for Frosted Designs

Hi all,

Now is you haven’t ever seen/been/visited Pinterest then your missing out on everything fun..It is a site that you can search for ideas, recipes, crafts, home decor, colours, anything……and I mean anything. I have many tags that I just know I wanna do and use one day in my dream house. I came across an old cheese grater on there, that someone had spray painted and used as a holder…So of course I had to give this a go and put my own touch of fab to it. In one of my junk shopping sprees I was lucky enough to find some old rusted round graters and just knew they would be perfect for this creation.

So I started off with a rusty old grater…cleaned it up, sprayed it white and started creating. This is what I came up with

Hexagons- Frosted Designs challenge.

Ok crafters..time to get creative with the hexagons….Our challenge to you is to create anything you like as long as you have incorporated the hexagon shape into it some how.

I have been flat out with my studies so managed to come up with a quick card that while not that creative…and yes a card (now I don’t normally do cards)…I still think it was quite effective.

So come on over to Frosted Designs and check out the design teams fab ideas and get creative..add your link to our page. Can’t wait to see what you all come up with🙂

Frosted design…Banner challenge

Ok ladies,

The next fantastic challenge that I was involved in over at Frosted Designs was Banners.

Now I am not a banners girl..its a little too pretty for me..but I knew there would be some way I could achieve a ME banner and be happy with it.

So what I did was get an old sewing pattern, cut it up into strips, glimmermist it with my fav colour , dry off with the heat gun, then scrunch it up a a little…and of course finish off the look with some bakers twine.

This is how it looks on my page.

Image

ok so the challenge to you is to get creating…make anything your crafty heart desires …as long as it has a banner of your own style happening somewhere…you fit the challenge.

Now remember to head over to Froster Design‘s blog and check out the talented friday team and all their fantastic banners and work.

Happy crafting

Frosted designs- Grids challenge

Well its that time again for my fab friday team to showcase some of our work for a new challenge. The challenge is GRID! Thats it, plain and simple….Interpret that anyway you like! We would love to see what you come up with and come over to Frosted designs and upload your creation.

Here is my LO that I did using my sewing machine to sew grids onto the boarder, and also drew up a grid that my title is enclosed in….

And yes sorry about the gory pictures…This was my son’s scooter injury he received 4 days before our school holidays ended. He had a cut or should I say gash right to the bone. It was Lydia (another frosted designs member) that had to get my bleeding son back to me, so I could take to the hospital for treatment. His cut surprisingly only required 5 (deep) stitches and he had to be braced for 3 weeks. Lucky for him (and me) that school was starting so he never missed out on much of the fun of school holidays and he was also the centre of attention at school for some time. And in typical form..a scrapbookers son…I had to print out these pictures and more to send along with him to school so he could show everyone how horrid it looked. The poor nurses must have thought I was a nutter when every dressing change, I would snap some more shots of the healing wound. LOL. So if you don’t lik blood then don’t look at the next close up :)…that is your warning.

Ok so I saved you from the worse one…we have a few really good close ups LOL.

Hope everyone having some scrappy fun and can’t wait to see what you all come up with for your grid idea.

I glimmermisted up some rice lamp shades for my daughters room..they look so awesome with the lights on too and she is pretty happy
