Oh my! kanda's made a stunner!

We love having guest DTMs joining us each month, there are so, so many wonderfully talented crafters out there in blogland - you're all phenomenal! All our guests add dynamism to our blog and the exciting thing is that we never know what the guest project is until it pops into the inbox! Today we have another guest, one of January's Top 3 winners, and she is sharing this corker with us!...


"Hi, my name is Andrea but in blogland I go under the crafty name of kanda.

I was taught so many types of different crafts as a child as it was part of the way of life in those days - cardigans were always hand knitted,  dresses were sewn and those were skills I'd learnt even before I started school.  I made the obligatory cards as a child at school but never really started paper crafting until a few years ago. Now I'm hooked and haven't sent a shop bought card since I started blogging a couple of years ago."

"I was so delighted to be invited to join in as a GDT with this months 1st blogaversary challenge and rather than make a card I decided to do something different with paper.

This basket is made with a selection of papers of varying thickness and finish. The 'cube' base is made with a 12 inch paper so you get a nice size basket that would be ideal for mothers day. The flowers, butterflies and tag are all made with dies / punches and I just added a few gems and a lace bow to finish. If you want any further details I will list the materials I used on my blog."

This is stunning Andrea and what a fabulous idea - this works well at any time of year but would be extra fabulous for Mother's Day and Easter! Thank you!

Having 'Paper chase' as a topic this month really gives everyone carte blanche! We're exited to see such contrasting and stunning projects being entered already - please keep them coming!

More soon. xxx
