January 15th Challenge & Tutorial

This is the last challenge until the 20th so we thought we'd give you both a challenge and a tutorial since you'll have a few days to catch up!

The 15th anniversary is celebrated with crystal!

When I relate crystal to scrapping I automatically think of gem flourishes!

This challenge is simple, just add some simple bling to your project such as Dot has done here with her layout. It's a simple layout done with just a touch of pizzazz using the crystal flourish.

This tutorial is brought to you by Kristine!!!!

I call them Twine Curlies you can call them whatever you wish!

very simple to make and add so much "cuteness" to any card or layout
you need :

a pencil, chop stick or I use my Basic Grey File
a button
about 8 inches or so of twine
hairdryer or heat gun (i have never used a heat gun on this)


simply tie a knot with your twine on your button or embellishment
curl your twine on your chop stick, your file or anything thin and round
- the tighter, the better
spray with hairspray
then dry with your hairdryer - let sit for a minute or two and slowly slide off your tool

It's really easy ... remember to have fun with it..
and i'd love to see a layout or card using this technique ;-)

Don't forget to leave us a link so we can she your projects!!
