New Challenge at Try it on Tuesday

Welcome to Jumbled Crafts and thank you for calling in. I am sure some of you will be here to see what the latest challenge is at Try it on Tuesday. Always exciting every two weeks when we start a new challenge. Lots of inspiration by the team as well if you visit TIOT.  The theme this time is Hearts and Flowers.


I made something to give to Vic on Valentine's Day


Inside it will have real seed packets when I find out which ones he would like this year. We always get lots of seed catalogues in the post and he orders lots of seeds from them so I will pay for them this time.


Good old Amazon envelope with the sides cut off to make a folder shape

Covered with some of the beautiful papers from this book my daughter gave to me when she gave up paper crafting. That's about it really except for using a couple of envelopes to make pockets and some pictures of seed packets.

Have fun with the challenge

Love Chrissie xx
