UKS Blog Hop!

Today we are taking part in the UKScrappers Blog Hop!

You may have come here from The Biskit Barrel (A Sprinkle of Imagination) and if so I hope you enjoyed your visit there. Here at ATDML we are uploading a layout project using the My Little Shoebox 3D roll up flowers.

Available in 5 different designs these versatile double sided embellishments will add dimension and texture to your pages.

The class is a layout designed by Ann Freeman, feel free to use it to create your own version of the same layout, or to get inspired to use these fabulous little 3D flowers in some other way!

The full instructions can be found HERE on our website as a free downloadable PDF

Here is an excerpt from Anns instructions talking about assembling the flowers:

• Choose a selection of 3D flowers (they all make different size and height flowers) and carefully pop out of the sheet. Note that the sheet is double side with a pattern on one side and a plainer complimenting colour on the reverse.
• Taking a needle or paper piercer start the rolling of the flowers from the outside working in to the centre, and once you have got the roll started you can carry on with your fingers. Roll the flower up and secure in place with a glue dot. You can practice how loose or tight you want your flowers, it is a matter of individual preference.
When you have a selection (I think I rolled 5) layer some of these onto the standard flower die-cuts on your sheet and use a needle or piercer again to gentle curl the petals on these.

We have donated a prize to UKScrappers which, along with some others donated by other UKS sponsors will be drawn for those who participate in the blog hop by commenting on all the blogs and on the UKS thread (link at the top)

In addition, all orders over £20 placed between now and 6pm on Sunday 6th November with your UKS name in the comments box will qualify for a free selection of brand new 2011 Christmas papers.

Thanks for joining us. Next on the blog hop list is Dyan Reavely of Art From the Heart
