Ready, Set, Launch!!!!!

Thankyou everyone for joining me in my very First Blog Sale!!!!

I have been busy hooking away for the last month creating lots of yummy goodies for you all. I decided to showcase some of my newer patterns this time round.

Please let me know if there is anything else you would like next time round (looking at late Sept) in either and email or a comment below. I will take all suggestions into consideration.

All of my products are hand hooked by me using cotton thread. The threads do vary a little in thickness so you will find some items are slighter bigger than others because of this. Makes for great layering!

Please email me at beccisund@yahoo.com.au with your order. I will notify you of the total of your successful order including postage.
Postage prices range from $1.40 for a couple of items, $2.70 for a few more and if you order a tonne I'll send them in a $6 satchel (for orders within Australia).

Without further ado here are my items!!!

Build Your Own Lollypop Flowers! - $10

August 123 Challenge

I just loved the criteria for this months 123 Challenge.
The criteria were:
Yellow
The word SUNSHINE
And to use misting.

Here's my take:
Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket


I have yellow in the word Sunshine and in a button and I have misted the butterflies with some thinned down paint.
I used Bazzil Swiss Dots paper for my base. October Afternoon pp's and journalling card. DCWV pp.


My very own Lollypop flowers (look for their reveal later tonight!).

I cut a slit in the cardstock base and created a pocket on the back to house the journalling card.

50 Posts!!!!!!! a giveaway and some sneaks

Yep 50 posts came and went and I didn't realise! Will have to have a bit of a giveaway for that I think.
But first here's another sneak.

Photobucket

What do you think?
Now don't forget launch time is this Monday the 30th August 8pm Central Austarlian time (Adelaide).

Now for that giveaway.
I have been giving lots of thought to colour combos while I have been hooking away for this launch. So for your chance to win a mystery giveaway of some crocheted goodies leave a comment below telling me what your favourite 3 or 4 colour combo is (Aussie entries only sorry gals). That's it, no promos etc needed for extra entries etc.
Entries will close at the commencement of the launch.

August Scrap The Boys Swaps & LO's

I have had a lot of fun making this months swaps for STB. At first I wanted to create a lollypop flower using a circle of denium and a red crocheted circle with a covered denium button. Well being a novice at such things it didn't go to well and I admitted defeat. Instead I went for an extra layer of denium and then topped it with the top of a silver (they do look black the in pic) snap button.

Here's the final result:

Photobucket

The second challenge for this month at STB was to use ribbon on your LO with the option of using the sketch.
I have been wanting to try this idea ever since I saw somehting similar in an SM magazine not long after I first started scrapbooking 2 years ago.
I chose not to use the sketch but have used lots of ribbon.
I just love this pic of Brian and Eli in the shower.

I added an October Afternoon lullabye card and journalling spot, a blue crocheted heart made by me and have added a lock and heart from My2Angels. AC thickers I have inked and then doodled on.

Sneak Peeks!

So after completely swamping everyone with my last few posts I thought I'd let you all have a couple of sneak peaks at what I have been working on for my first sale.
Sorry about the poor quality pics, it's all gloomy here.

Photobucket
Hmmm Lollypops come to mind shhhh

Photobucket


At this stage I'm hoping to release my new kits on Monday night the 30th August. Plenty of time to put those pennies away.

The Lollypop Ladies 1st Challenge!

I have been so wanting to get this page scrapped and entered for the 1st Ever Lollypop Ladies Challenge!
Unfortunately i miss read the closing time. Thought it was midnight tonight, but it was midday :)
I'm so disappointed in myself. I really wanted to be in the first challenge and support Marcia and Sam on their new adventure.

Anyway here's my entry:

Photobucket

Photobucket

I have used October Afternoon Ducks in a Row pp's and one of my little lollypop circles.

Head on over to The Lollypop Ladies, I'm fairly sure the next fortnightly challenge is release tomorrow.

Scrap The Boys Swaps

I have finally taken part in my first ever swap! I have been a little scared to participate in swaps partly because I'm not sure of the standard that is required, but also because I haven't wanted to get too many girly pinky intems. Some are great for sure, can use them on cards, but not heaps.
So when Scrap The Boys started back up and they were to have a swap I jumped at the chance.
July was the first swap. A Kraft swap. I love Kraft! We had 15 particiants too!

Here's a dodgy pic of what I made:

Photobucket

and this is what I recieved back:

Photobucket

OMG! I was so excited! I have already used some of the items too.

Augusts swap is 'Blue Jeans' (you can see a better pic of the Kraft swaps here too). The swaps closed for this month and we have 19 particpants! Have started on mine and can't wait to get them sent off.

If you're interested in taking part next month head on over to the blog and become a folower. Then keep an eye out for the 5th of September when the next Swap is released.

A friendly flower order

My gorgeous friend Sam of KnitMadMum on FaceBook asked me to crochet her some of my flowers for a pair of verigated red/orange pants she had.
This is how they turned out.

Photobucket

Sam was very happy with how they turned out. Can't wait to see them sewed onto the pants.
Now if you're after some gorgeous hand knitted items for your bubs then search for KitMadMum on FaceBook. She's takeing orders. I just love her Monster longies!

So much to share....

So sorry for not blogging much lately. I've been very busy scrapping and hooking up items for my up coming blog sale, more on that in another post though.

Now where to start. Well I'll just start with the first pic in my gallery.

I think I'll start with some LO from last months CyberCrop at Scrapbooking Top 50 Australia.

Our Soldier Boy

Photobucket

I have used Kaisers Military pp's and alphas. I have also included a couple of Randalls old Lance Corporal badges as embellies behind the pic.


Photobucket

I have used Bo Bunny's Block Party range. One of my very faves atm.

Photobucket

Block Party again here too.


Now for this months CyberCrop at SBT50.

Photobucket

Photobucket

I have used lots of Kasiers Le Chateau pp's, Making memories title alphas, Kaisers mini alphas for my journalling. Scrapware and Buzz & Bloom chippie bits. My own crocheted flowers topped with a Purple Pumpkin robot button.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Thought this embelly was a little cute. Used a short piece of ribbon from Purple Pumpkin, topped with a ticket I received in the Scrap The Boys Kraft swap last month, added a Purple Pumpkin denium button. Broke the pics off of a Block Party brand and glued it all together.
Block Party here again, with a little bit of Sass Lass thrown in for good measure. A little bit more Purple Pumpkin too.

Next up is my entry for Scraphappy Kats monthly challenge. This month was my first month taking part in this challenge. We were given a pack of goodies and had to use it to creat a LO. This time we were only allowed to use what came in the pack, nothing else, well other than adhesives and pics. No inking the edges, no other alphas, nothing!

Photobucket

Photobucket

Oh here's another LO for SBT50. This is my take on one of last months challenges.

Photobucket

I have used Kasiers Jungle Bugs range here again. So love this range.

Well I think that's it for now.
