The Hobby House - My Introduction

Good morning Blogger friends...

Today over on The Hobby House Blog it's my introduction day.

Still can't believe that Jill and Kate have invited me onto this fabulous new design team. I'm so thrilled! The Hobby House has gorgeous products and I can't wait to inspire you with them.

Over the last few weeks the design team have all been introduced to you. I'm the last. If you've missed the introductions then you can find them on The Hobby House Blog. All the girls are amazingly talented so why not pop on over to their blogs for some inspiration and to see some beautiful projects.

This is one of  three pieces that I made for the DT call.

I made a book card which I've never done before and it was inspired by the lovely Jenny, who also happened to be invited onto the team!

I really enjoyed making this and found a tutorial on youtube. I love that you can find so many helpful tutorials on so many different things.

These book cards make such lovely gifts and I'll definitely be making more and filling them with goodies to give as presents.

The beauty of working with The Hobby House toppers is that you can make your project in a fraction of the time because there's no colouring involved. Great for the busy times and they give such a professional look.

Jill at The Hobby House also has all the matching embellishments from ribbons, brads, pearls and sparklers to gorgeous mulberry flowers. You just know that everything is going to come together beautifully.

Hobby House products used :-

Wee Card Toppers - Bluebell Wood
Hobby House Pearls - Ivory Silk 5mm
Hobby House Sparklers - Rhinestone Chocolate Crystal
Hobby House Mat & Layer Kit - Bluebell Wood
Hobby House Flourishes - Pearl Border Flourish (under butterfly)

The papers are Maja 8th & 10th April and the dies used are Joy Crafts Leaves, DooHickey Leaf and a Woodware butterfly punch.

Don't forget that The Hobby House now has a challenge blog and this month sees our first challenge which is an easy Anything Goes. The first prize picked by randon org is a massive £25 Hobby House Voucher (excludes postage) and the top 3 will hand picked.

Congratulations on joining the The Hobby House. I didn't realise they were situated so close to me. Did you go to the Stamp Magic show yesterday. I had a long browse at their stand. I am now going to enter their first challenge.
