Here we go round the Mulberry Bush........

I can't help but start singing this when I see the new Rich Razzleberry - it just pops in my head!!!  The new colours are just fab and I for one can't wait until we get our hands on the full set with the new colour releases.

Many thanks to VAL for sending people my way (Hop back if not and see her fabby stuff) oh and Val if you are reading - its my birthday in August and although I am not 16 - WOW I wish I was your sister - lol.

If you are interested in finding out how a demo can win all the new colour products get in touch and I can talk you through what is involved.  SU are giving all SU Demos the change to win all the new ink and card colours in one fell swoop!!  It couldn't be easier!!!

But I had better show some projects or I will have Debbie to answer to!  Debbie is organising this hop and has worked hard to make sure we are all linked in together and the flow of ideas and projects as well as blog links are just fab - thanks Debbie!

So onto my projects.



This was a little frame I had in my "to do things with" box.  So I covered it in some Cottage Wall paper and then added a mini scrap page - it is about 4 x 4in!!  It also uses some textured Old Olive and then a clear button and some twine.  Very simple.


 This one uses the spiral bound chipboard book and at the moment it is blank inside but I have an idea to record all Caits mad sayings and fun mis-sayings for when she is older.  Cottage wall papers again but also some sticky cuts and glitter - just so easy to use.  Clear button and twine to finish the flow and loads of lovely ribbon down the side on the rings.  I used the two new spotty ones in Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry and then some Certainly Celery which came as part of an offer last year but you could easily use the gross grain.  I used the lace border punch on the green scrap for a bit more detail.

 A friend of mine visited on Friday and she loved this saying so this is a little notelet set for her (when we next meet up) and uses one 12 x 12in sheet for the bag and some ribbon then I punched some butterflies from scraps and glittered them up all over!!!  The saying is from Occasional Greetings and the ribbon used is Melon Mambo Polka Dot.  The cards are very simple 10 x 10cm cards.

So overall nothing too complicated but don't the products look stunning - such rich High Summer Colours!

As the idea of the Hop is some inspiration I am hoping you got some here and are heading for the craft room RIGHT NOW - if you leave a comment and link to your project inspired by what you have seen on the hop I have a little draw for some fabby new product and set of stamps. I will add a photo later as I got carried away and forgot to photo them earlier!!  Whoops!!

I would like to point you in the hopping direction of the next person on the loop which is KARA - yet another severely talented Demo!!!  Do have fun on your onward journey and please leave a comment and if you can link to your inspired project for a chance to win my goodies.....
