Going Round In Circles

Hello Crafty Peeps,

I hope you're all enjoying the new and exciting Blog, here with us. It's so nice to have a little cheeryness even though it's a bit grey outside.

I think sometimes, we all feel as if we need to use fancy shapes to make a card, and our poor basic shapes are a bit neglected (all together now, ahhhhhhh!). So, I though I would try and make something using plain old circles, but with a different perspective.

I have been a little bit inspired by the wet weather too, and felt compelled to use the umbrella paper from the Brittannia Kit ;)

I printed a few different patterns and cut different sized circles from each, so I'd have a selection. I then layed them out over the umbrella paper, until I was happy with the layout. Some are stuck down flat, but on others, I used foam pads to give them dimension. A bit of ribbon and a few "Zazzy" Big Bang Theory Fans will know) stickers, and I think you've got quite a pretty little card.

Hi all.

I'm really excited as this is my first post for the brand new Sarah Hurley 365 Blog

I've decided to Try Something Different.

As a crafter, usually cards, I sometimes find that I use the same techniques - but I really wanted to try something I hadn't done before.

I like the idea of finding other uses for things and experimenting with them. So today, I thought I'd play with some toilet paper!!!!! ;)

Head on over to the Blog to find out how I've made this.

I hope this will inspire you to look at your craft stash differently, or even household items!! and try something different.

Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Happy 2014 to everyone!!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are looking forward to lots of crafting this year.

We Hurley Girlies have some fabulous news - a few changes have been made to our Challenge Blog and we very much look forward to you joining in on all the fun and frivolity!!!

First things first - a new name!!

As Clare mentioned in her previous winners post, we have some exciting news to share with you! The Sarah Hurley Challenge Blog is changing! We have a fresh start for 2014 with lots more features for you and we can't wait to get started. Click here to see what's new :D

Our first challenge for the new year is Thank You, and here's Jaine to explain all:

"Since Christmas and the New Year festivities are now over, it seems we all have something to be thankful for. It may be a thank you for the present, thank you for having us or simply a show of thankfulness for having got through Christmas without gaining much weight! (that's not me by the way). So it's right that we show our thanks in this first challenge."

Thanks Jaine - Here is my Thank You Challenge entry:

I have used papers from The Most Wonderful Time Digi Kit to make my card, and used the Memory Box Circle Burst Die, which was a Christmas gift from my lovely friend Pam.

We really hope to see lots more of you and your lovely creations this year, so please spread the word!!!!!
