TIO #57 - As You Like It - Sponsored by Crafty Individuals

Posted by PicasaHere we go with a very special challenge.

As you can see, there is no tag from me this time. I am challenging you to dream your own theme, and then to say why you would like to win these fabulous goodies!!! They are all beautifully themed for the sea-side and the paper block is just to die for!!! I WANT these myself, you can bet!!! So thanks very much Jean and Malcolm from Crafty Individuals.

Included are no less than 5 sets of stamps, a co-ordinating paper block, a badge and a handbag mirror!!

Your rules for this one then, are

1. dream a tag specially for this blog - please try to give it a twist, you know what I like!!!
2. say why you would love to have this stash
3. use at least one real stamp on your work
4. post your link here
5. have my TIO button on your sidebar

You have a month to join in, so it gives you plenty of opportunity to make your special tag. I shall be on holiday on a cruise, in the middle of the month, so the closing date will be the end of October. There will be something different on 3rd November, when I also hope to announce the winner of this great stash!!

So thinking caps on and good luck to everyone... ENJOY!!

TIO #56 - Through the Window??

LOVED your beady dreams last week. So here we go again with another challenge.

Shortly, Crafty Individuals will be sponsoring a prize for a TIO challenge, and Malcolm is sorting it to send, as I write!!! I am SO excited. With that in mind, I have added 2 of their little windows to my tag this week...

Your dream, should you wish to have it, is to make your tag about windows, and to use at least one real stamp. I think you have enough scope there to have a lovely dream this time, so I look forward to visiting you soon, to check out your tags... ENJOY!!!

TIO #55 - Bead-dazzle

This was a really nice one to do. I am deeply into making beads and these lovely little Lynne roses. This one is only about half an inch across and is painted with peony eco paint and sploshed with red fire cosmic shimmer. The beads are pink, gold and white poly clay, with some gold leaf moulded in.

So, this week, I would love you to dream in beads, jewellery etc ... bedazzle us please, but don't forget one really truly stamp. Mine is printed in sepia archaeval from the luscious new set of words by Elusive Images - Artistic affirmations... you HAVE to have it!!!

Hey... a couple of bits of news that are very exciting for me - I have a ticket for the Tim Holtz craft course next year, and Crafty Individuals have agreed to sponsor a prize HERE on this very site!!! Wooo..
Enjoy and hugs from
Frankie

TIO #54 - Emboss it...Cuttlebug or Similar Machine


So late again this week!!! Still it gave Wanda the opportunity to sneak under the wire!!! Tee hee...  I have had the boys all week, in and out whilst Matt started school yesterday but only half days!!... So crafting has been spasmodic!!!

Here we go then. I have dreamed embossing with my cuttlebug this week. So I would like you to do the same... it could be a different machine, but the embossing should be the focal point... but NEVER forget at least one real stamp... mine is from the new words by Elusive images - they are FANTASTIC!!!!

ENJOY
Frankie
