I was surprised and happy to receive an 'Liebster Blog Award' from Becky Litz. Thank you Becky! What is this award you probably think (and so did I:)

From Becky's blog...
The origins of the Liebster Blog Award are unclear but "the word translates from German as "darling" or "beloved". It's given to bloggers who have less than 200 followers in order to generate some traffic for them.

Here are the guidelines for the Liebster Blog Award
1. Acknowledge the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2. Give this award to 5 other bloggers, who must have less than 200 followers, and let them know through a comment on their blog.
3. Post the award on your blog
4. Best of all- bask in the glory, have fun, and share the love!

I will pass this award on to the following bloggers...

1. Alex from Sweden...I love her style and use of 'white space' in her projects

2. Janine Koczwara from Australia...beautiful photography and vintage creations

from Greece...inspiring projects (despite the fact I can't read Greek)

4. Aga from Australia... colorful and inspiring

5. Belinda Howard...long time no see:) How is life?

Thank you for the inspiration ladies and pass on the love!

I was also picked for the Top 5 that entered the Glitz Blog Challenge...happy about that, I liked the LO I've entered. Congrats to Wendy Kwok who won the challenge!

Glitz Color Challenge

I have been hoarding my Glitz products for a while and just needed a little push to start using them...they are all so beautiful!
The Color Challenge this month on the Glitz Blog was just the right inspiration to get me started!

Isn't that just the most beautiful color combo?

So here is my sample using mostly 'Little Dreamer' products and a few other bits and pieces.

Have a great weekend!

Lily Bee CHA Sneak Peeks

Lily Bee has some amazing new collections coming out at CHA Winter 2012!
Four new collections with 6 papers in each collection plus matching Stationery papers, die cuts, ABC stickers, cardstock stickers and stamps!
You have to go and see all the reveals going on at the Lily Bee blog right now!!

Jillibean Guest Designer

I've had the pleasure of being the Jillibean Soup Guest Designer for January!
The products are amazing to work with! Love the colors of the papers and all of the different embellishments that come with every collection.

My first LO 'Hold On' was created with papers from the 'Hearty Barley' collection and the soooooo versatile kraft tags (they come in different sizes).
I've used some different background stamps and embossed the images with white embossing powder. I totally love the look it creates.

The next LO 'Spark' was created with the 'Sweet and Sour Soup' collection. What a great color combo with the teal, grey, orange and pink!
I have also used lots of the little stickers and die cuts that match this collection and the 'Cool Beans Buttons'.

Next we have a Christmas Holiday mini Album created from the 'Christmas Eve' collection. The corrugated shapes, label stickers and small die cuts were just perfect for a project like this!

Last but not least a card created from the 'Hearty Barley' collection...

Playing catch up...

Well, Christmas and New Year has come and gone. I have been to Europe within a week and back and now enjoying the last two weeks of school holidays with my parents in the country. It is just incredible how busy the last two months were and how fast they have gone by.
I have been busy with traveling and children but still had time to create. Here comes the picture overload...

Lily Bee has some great new products being released for CHA but the previous collections are still wonderful to create with. This week we are focusing on the Cardstock Stickers that come with every collection. Take a look at the Lily Bee Blog for all the amazing samples created by the Design Team.

I have also had the pleasure to create with some of Grant Studios products for their CHA catalog. These are some great products that should hit your local craft stores very soon.
