Totally Papercrafts 1st Anniversary

Do we have a special challenge for you this week?
Totally Papercrafts is celebrating it's 1st Birthday.
A HUGE thankyou to everyone that has joined in with our challenges and supported us over the last year... we couldn't do it without ya and we loves ya!
Let's here it for my teamies too - the most fabulous bunch of girls - who work hard behind the scenes to bring you inspiration every week.

So, what do we have planned - well, we would like you to enter a card/project following our theme..


For my project I decided to put together a little gift set for my best friend.

Before I share with you how this was made (it's easy peasy) take a look at our list of generous sponsors. There are some awesome prizes on offer - pop on over to the blog to see all the details.


My gift set contains a candle, notebook, bookmark, and post it note/calendar block. Everything fitted neatly into a re-cycled perfume box. I think I will add some chocs too - I can't give a gift without chocklit, can I ?
The gifts and box were all decorated with Docrafts Hanoverian DP - with ribbon and brads from the same range.
The 'Friend' sentiment is Making Memories, velvet alphabet stickers and I made the bookmark sentiment on my comp.

Challenges I would like to enter - 
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes and optional flowers. My paper is flowery and I have also used a XCut punch to make some blooms and added card candy to the centre of them.
Top Tip - Anything Girlie.  Hope this is 'girlie' enough!
