Pollycraft Blog Hop


I hope you are all as excited as me!! The team have been busy creating projects with these awesome new images for weeks!! We've been sitting on pins and needles this WHOLE time and we're ready to burst and show you what we've got!!

First of all I wanna let you know that each team member will be having a little mini giveaway with the image they have used on their project for the hop. All you gotta do is leave a comment and place the blog hop logo in your sidebar, and a random winner will be picked from each blog and announced on Monday with the new challenge post. Got it? :)

So.. if you've arrived here from Cazza's Blog you're on the right track. If not.. start HERE back at Cazza's Blog to get you started - you won't wanna miss ANYone out!!

As soon as Paula showed us the new Lunas I almost DIED!! I had to get them printed out and coloured up straight away. You might recognise this card I'm about to show you from the Blog Hop Logo..

All of the images from this hop will be released on Monday 29th August over at Pollycraft. So be sure to keep your eyes peeled.

Check out her PINK hair and the whole overall general PINKness of the card. You like? I think I do! :) A couplea weeks ago - it seems like forever ago now - I was trying out some new colour combos and I thought hell, this rock chick needs some funky hair!! So I coloured this image to match some ooold papers from My Minds Eye - Oh La La for Her collection and ran with the whole pink theme.

I designed the layout as I went as I couldn't find a sketch I was feeling at the time. I have added a slice of patterned paper at a jaunty angle which I really like and an embossed strip near the bottom which I have wound some ribbon from The Ribbon Girl around and added a cute little bow.

I added some light blue chalk from Dovecraft around the outside of the image to make it pop and cut it out leaving a border big enough for a sentiment and some little stars dotted about. All stamps are from Papertrey Ink - Star Prints collection stamped in SU! Pretty in Pink.

I have distressed and doodled all edges with Distress Ink and a brown fineliner. I also added some Star Dust Stickles around the outside of the piece with my image on. For some extra embellishment I have added some WOC goodness and some Prima pearls and gems.

Here is a shot at the inside of the card. It's sort of a simpler version of the front with the same star pattern down the right hand side which you can't see all the well on the front. Again I have distressed and doodled all edges and added the same sentiment!

All you gotta do to win this rock chick is leave a comment and place the blog hop logo on your sidebar.. then a winner will be drawn ready for my challenge post on Monday 29/08.

I'm now going to send you over to Mary J's Blog to continue with the hop!! I hope you have a great time and enjoy the ride!! :)
