City Crafter Special Challenge

Hello and good morning to you all ...
I hope you all enjoyed your Easter weekend ...

Are you ready for a Special challenge at City Crafter
This week we will be sharing projects using goods kindly supplied by Madeleine at

A friendly UK based online craft store for all your needs which you can visit by clicking Here

This week each of our 4 Designers have chosen a product they would like you to use on your project ... 
My product is Pearls

To qualify you need only choose One of the products but of course you can use 2,3 or all 4 if you wish
To see what the other designers have chosen and for full details ... you need to visit the CCCB blog ... And there is a mystery prize up for grabs this week too!

Ok, on to my projects 

Using the products supplied by Craftsite - which I will list at the end of my post ... I've made a handbag card, an album and a book box to hold the album ... all papers are En Francais by Prima

First up is my handbag card which I just cut free hand and used a Sizzix circle die for the handle and a PTI die for the butterfly

The only things added from my stash are the leaves cut from burlap ... the little metal handle holders (from an old handbag) and a mobile phone charm - I also did some stitching - you can click to enlarge the photo

Stickles and pearls on the butterfly and a strip of the pearl flourish on the bottom of the 'bag'

This is the book box to hold my album ... again just cut free hand and covered in the lovely Prima papers ... I also cut pieces from the papers like those little tickets to use as embellishments 

I added liquid pearls to the pretty Prima En Francais flower stamp 

The box is decorated inside and out 

and here is the front of the album

The card stock ribbon and lace are from my stash as is the pearl brad and diamante but everything else in and on this album come from Craftsite

There are lots of pages in the album ... far too many to show today

So if you would like to see more ... please come back on Thursday when I will share each individual page for you ...

Here's a link to the rest of the Designer's blogs so you can check out their lovely creations

 And don't forget to go and visit the Craftsite store and browse the lovely goods...
With grateful thanks to Madeleine

Thanks for stopping by ... Have a lovely day
