Top Tip Tuesday

Good TTT Morning!


Really quick post this morning (my Internet was playing up last night) to remind you to pop on over to Top Tip Tuesday to see if you were one of our lucky winners in our 'Bling it On' challenge and to find out what treats are in store for you with this weeks challenge!

I've got to run to work now - but will be back later and update on this weeks sponsors :)


I can't believe I didn't start this post this morning with a St David's Day greeting!

Dydd Dewi Sant Hapus

Now I can spend a little more time adding a few more deets for this week's challenge!

The amazing tutorial this week is by the wonderfully talented Eiglas - you just have to pop over to see what she's created - she is showing us how to make her Tim Holtz Techniques Folio, if you love projects to really get your teeth into, you're going to LOVE this one!

The Top Tip Tuesday Challenge this week is to use your favorite technique or embelishment.........how hard is that - good job you can have 3 entries!

I made a card using my favorite technique, and for those of you that have been visiting us over at TTT for a while you may not be surprised when I tell you it's recycling!

The only things used for this card that are designed for card making are the white card blank and the peel off in the centre of the flower (and of course the sentiment and the flower stamps).

The backing 'kraft' is one of my favorite Recyclables - the board from an A4 rigid Envelope. The backing paper is from a box of chocs my DH bought me for our Anniversary last week and the cord is from..............................I haven't got a clue - I have a bag full of bits of string and cord and other 'tie-able' bits that get picked up on my travels!

The backing image on the chocolate box paper is a FREEBIE digi image from one of our fantastic sponsors this week...

(Unfortunately they appear to be updating their website at the moment - add them to your favorites and pop back soon)

Our other wonderful sponsor this week is...


Don't forget there are plenty of ways to win a prize!
  • 3 Entries with you favorite technique and/or embelishment
  • Leave a Top Tip in the comments section of this week's TTT post
PLEASE make sure you link to your post and not just your blog and also make sure you have added a link back to TTT in your post.
We would also apreciate it if you turn off Word Verification (you can change it to Word Moderation if you want to vet comments as they come in), it takes so much more time to leave comments when WV is on....and I know in the past I have clicked past the 'add letters' bit as that window was out of view!!!

Thanks for your patience with my TTT post this week - I just hope someone does actually come back to re-read it..........
...................................anyone there?????????????????
