Mystery Book details and Rock star card project Download

Hi all

I have had an amazingly hectic day yesterday , so haven't managed to do any more examples for the competition. I had a box through the post yesterday morning from Cosmo Cricket, Wow love everything. I am really keen to work with all of it. You will be seeing and hearing more in the near future.

Cosmo Cricket honey pie

I do patchwork and quilting and have been thinking about mystery quilts. They give you a list of fabric one week, tell you what sizes to cut it in the next week. The week after you get some instructions to assemble sections and so on.

I have been thinking that it might be a great way to do a project say over a week. (Obviously I would give you the supplies needed list 2 weeks before) I am in negotiations with an interested shop owner , So there will be a kit. Details when supplies list is issued

I would like to think that each stage is a starting point and that you can wander of it and back to it whenever you want. Alter bits add bits leave bits out etc. It would be really interesting to see posts at each stage to see just how quickly they all deviate. There will be a downloadable sheet of instructions every day so that you can complete it in your own time if you prefer.

I would love to do a project with One of the Cosmo Cricket packs and a Cosmo Cricket blackboard book . If you would be interested in taking part in this challenge leave a comment on here.

Cosmo Cricket Fleuriste papers

I will put up two votes on my side bar and you can vote for which collection and which album you would like me to use for the project FLEURISTE or HONEY PIE and KATES ALBUM ( project will be a Music journal which will hold 6 cds or RUBYS ALBUM (project not quite finalised).

Click on the links to see each paper pack in detail then vote on my side bar . Project will be made with the top collection and album choice.

I will give you a week to vote and comment and if there is enough interest I will then announce the supplies list and start date the following week. Then on the start date you will get the 1st instruction download.

As promised I have the DCWV Rock Star Cards project download which you can download free here

Anyway thats me for the weekend, I am having a day off after an amazingly long week. I am still supposed to be taking it easy so I will not push it so tommorow I hope that some of you post links to the competition post, start getting you challenge entries posted and work on your competition entries.

Don't forget there will be another challenge on the 7th and the competition starts in earnest on the 14th.

I would also like to tell you about Explore a new craft. My new group on squidoo.(Brand new last night has 5 new lensea already) I have recently been experimenting with mixing different crafts in finished items. I think lots of papercrafters are looking for something new and different. I am taking a glass slumping class. so I can make my own embellishments, and am learning beading techniques for the same reason. I thought that it would be great to have a place where crafters from different mediums could get together and exchange ideas, techniques and skills.

So I have started the group, if you fancy messing around with new techniques in your crafting come along. you can share your knowledge and learn about crafts that you had not even thought about.

I am planning to record my experiments in mixed medium crafting on my blog and hope that you will enjoy the successes and failures as I go along.

Have a great weekend
