High Tea and I'm on another DT!

How about we start with the exciting news: I have been selected to be part of the UnstampaBelles Design Team! I only recently came across this challenge blog but their concept intrigued me so I started following them. You can enter any kind of papercraft project for their challenges as long as you don't use stamps of any kind. This suits me just fine because even though I have a lot of stamps I don't actually use them all that often.

The current challenge over at UnstampaBelles is Celebrations, in honour of their first blogoversary. I have created a LO about my hen's party high tea. It will also be my entry into the Gold Coast Show this year in the celebration category so feel free to leave constructive critism if there is anything you think I could improve. 

Be sure to stop by the UnstampaBelles blog. They are running a giveaway this month as well as having two great sponsors:
Cairns Bookbinders a small Book Bindery who create menus, compendiums, wine list covers for Motels and Hotels throughout Queensland. Like them here on Facebook.

1st Prize - One A5 Handmade Journal and three lengths of ribbon.
Plus, Cardmaking Online is offering a $25.00 voucher to their store.
I used the Kaisercraft Blae and Ivy paper range for this LO, which I received free whilst attending the flower class at Kaisercraft Robina. I used quite a few of the techniques I learnt during that class on this LO. You can see in this close-up the lace flower I hand-made. I had always thought these would be harder.

This close up shows some of the scrunched flower technique I like to use to create blossoms with depth from multiple Kaisercraft petals. You can also see some Kaisercraft mini-blooms, sparkles and a resin flower. The chipboard is from Scrapmatts.

Finally, I used a beautiful sketch from ScrapFriends as the basis for this design. This is for their third sketch challenge. I can't seem to stay away from their great designs. :)
