C.R.A.F.T 61 - Hot & Spicy!

I've no clue where this post went to! I wrote it up days ago and it just disappeared! That should not be possible!
Never mind - here it is again!

Over on C.R.A.F.T this week -
as we don't seem to be getting any 'real' summer at the moment, we have decided to create our own! Yeah, we're fed up of the miserable weather so we want you lot to come up with something Hot & Spicy!

You can use any genre you like, you can stamp, decoupage, knit, make a scrapbook layout or otherwise express yourself but your creation must be in Hot & Spicy colours.

Think of reds, oranges, hot pinks, golden yellows! We'll even allow you a little tiny bit of contrasting lime, lemon and turquoise but the overall effect must be steaming hot!

We have a fab sponsor for this week! Rosemary Merry's 'Crabapple Crafts' are offering a fab prize to the winner of this week's challenge so it would be good to see some summer holiday scrapbook layouts!

As tv's (...and certainly mine...!) favourite Scrapbooker, Rosemary always bring us great products in her own shop, Crabapple Crafts and on QVC and this August is no exception!

Rosemary will be appearing at the following times.

Crafts Creative Moments (the name of her relaunched shows)
3 August from 2.00pm - 4.00pm
3 August from 7.00pm - 8.00pm shared with USA guest Teresa Collins

American Crafts
16 August from 1.00pm - 2.00pm

Most of the products in all these shows haven't been seen before on QVC so it's going to be interesting and fun!

I personally love American Crafts (amongst others) and have a few of their stacks - the quality is just wonderful and the designs strong and contemporary - and Rosemary always presents an interesting show with lots of demos and inspiration.

That's why I've done a scrapbook layout this week!

It's fairly self-explanatory ( scrap-pages are wont to be...!) and as you can see, Charlie & Izzy have been busy! We'll see how busy in a few weeks! LOL!

Pop over to craft and join in with our summer fun - it'll be cooler everywhere else...!


  1. Hi Ei. Sorry I haven't been by for a while, life has got in the way of blogging a bit lately. Your LO caught my eye. The spicy colours are great and what lovely photos.
    Thanks for the heads up on Rosemary. I love to see her on QVC and shall make a note in my diary.
    Hugs Lisax

  2. What cute dogs, love the story behind this page.

    I do hope nature will take it's course and we get to see lots of piccies of cute puppies :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment!
I will try to respond where time allows.

I've been home from work now for nearly three months - and it has been wonderful...! I've drawn, painted, had an amazing time with ...
