March Product Focus - Bling and Pearls

Hello there, Liz here with some cards using some gorgeous pearls and bling from the Red Earth Scrapping shop.

On this card I have used a gorgeous ZVA Creative crystal flourish

On this card I have cut off some small flourishes from a ZVA Creative pearl flourish

And on this card I used the rest of the ZVA Creative pearl flourish to make a really simple and easy card.

I hope this inspires you to use some of your bling and pearls to create some projects of your own and because one always needs plenty of bling and pearls in their stash make sure to visit the Red Earth Scrapping shop.

March Stash Stomper Challenge

Poor Susanne has had a really hectic month and an awful lot on her mind so I'm just popping in to belatedly post Susanne's challenge for March ...

I absolutely loved her concept for her February challenge - something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue - but sadly it didn't get any entries in our gallery.

So this month, we're giving you a second chance at it, and to spice it up just a little, I've found this picture to provide inspiration for the basis of your creation.

The challenge is therefore thrown open to interpret the phrase AND/OR the picture as you like.

Remember to get your entries in the gallery by the end of the month and for a shop voucher prize to be awarded we need a minimum of 3 entries.
