Mini Blog Hop 2010

For those starting with me for the blog hop, Hello and are you ready for some beautiful projects??!! And for those joining me from MONICA, hi and I hope you've seen lots of lovely things inspiring you and getting you all excited about what the NEW Mini has in store from 1st April. I'm absolutely lovin' all the new items, trouble is which one to play with first!! lol
So, my project for the Blog Hop is this Card Organiser designed by Linda Moss and inspired by one made by Hayley Gillie at the Regional Training Event last week. I've used the SWEET PEA DESIGNER PAPER STACK - 48, 12x12 sheets of Double Sided Paper in 24 designs. All the papers are devine and colour co-ordinate with Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand, Old, Olive, Taken With Teal, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Pretty in Pink and Rose Red. There's quite a few colours as you can see and each design really is beautiful. I had a hard choice with which ones to use for this Organiser they're that lovely, but I went with these gorgeous butterfly and Pretty in Pink dotty papers.

The little pocket on the front has another NEW item from the MINI, SWEET PEA STITCHED FELT....love it! A bargain price too as there's 52 pieces in a pack for £6.50.

'Scuse the wonky angle of this next photo, goodness knows how I managed to do that. It does however show off the sides of the Organiser really well. See the ties on the side? The beads are also handmade.
Each pocket of the organiser has a monthly calender to slot your handmade cards behind, which is great for keeping up to date with up and coming birthdays. And finally a photo of the back of the Organiser, only becuase I wanted you to see more of these beautiful papers which is still part of the same piece from the front. You can click on any of these pictures and they'll all pop out as a much larger image for you to see the finer detail.

So that's me for this blog hop. Hope you've enjoyed what you've seen and I'll pass you on to SHAZ for your next stop and dose of eye candy which I know you will love.

Tomorrow I have something very cute to show you using another NEW item from the MINI so hope to see you then!

Enjoy the rest of the 2010 MINI BLOG HOP and hope it's got your juices flowing for making your purchases on the 1st April. I've also an EXCITING OFFER coming up very soon so if you're thinking of placing an order and would like the chance to WIN some MEGA PRIZES, stay tuned. Or if you'd like a NEW MINI catty posted to you, please drop me an email at jodumbleton@aol.co.uk and you can also get an insight into what the prizes are.

Tfl,
