Hello everyone and welcome to the blog hop for FAIRY Day hosted by Gill McCall on this the 24th and 25th June 2011. This is a 2 day hop for 24th and 25th where the line up on both days is different
If you have just come across this posting while browsing around in blog land then feel free to hop along but if you have arrived here from
Cynthia - http://cynchronicity.wordpress.com/ then you are on the right track but if not then you need to go and start at the beginning with
The theme of this hop is FAIRY Day so what we are doing is bringing together a select few people from all over the world to take part and for them to create a project with a fairy or fairies on it.
This is a hop with a difference as along the hop there are letters to find in the postings - not all blogs have the letters, but if you gather all the letters, then at the end of the hop on day 2, assemble them to create a fairy related word.
Go back to http://creationsbygillm.blogspot.com/ and enter the Mr Linky at the bottom of the post (do not reveal the secret word yet). After the hop Gill will contact someone at random and ask them to email her with the word - if correct they win some lovely candy. Sprinkled with fairy dust of course!!
Now on to my projects - I have created 3 projects for this hop.
The first is a Triangle exploding box that could contain a little surprise.
The outside triangle is 8” x 8” scored and folded to create a 4” x 4” base. The centre triangle is 53/4” from each point to the opposite centre. The lid is the same as the base with a flap left down one side to glue together.
I stamped with versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder, then distressed with Tattered Rose and Milled Lavender distress inks before I put the box together. The fairy was stamped and coloured with promarkers and glittered.
My second project is a card that I made using my flower fairy cd from Crafters Companion
My third project is a bookmark which is a basic card base which I stamped with SU Baja breeze and Certainly celery and the fairy was coloured with promarkers and glazed.
So there we have it – my entries for day one of the Fairy Day hosted blog hop – hope you like them and will return again tomorrow for some more fairyness!!
There are a lot of talented crafty women on this hop and I hope you enjoy looking through their hop entries. So now please hop on over to
Dawn - http://dawnsdesignsthatdelight.blogspot.com/ for the next fairyesque creative project.
Good luck everyone and thank you for hopping or should I say flying along! Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for day 2 and to gather the rest of the hidden letters.
