The Anything Goes with ItsyBitsy Challenge

Folks, it's the 15th of the month and time for a brand new challenge here at ItsyBitsy. As you know ItsyBitsy is India's number one Hobby and Craft Supplies Megastore and we have literally over 15000 products to choose from. So your challenge this month is to create anything you like as long as it includes a product from ItsyBitsy. The challenge name is 'Anything Goes with ItsyBitsy because with ItsyBitsy, you can make almost anything!!! As always there will be two categories - Jewellery Making and Paper Crafting. 

And to get you started, here is some inspiration! For Paper Crafting, I created a gift set. I have to say I was extremely inspired by the submissions of last month's challenge. Mansi made a beautiful set which inspired me to make one. And Sathya created this fabulous mosaic design card which again inspired my project. Nothing gets me more excited than great new ideas and you ladies got me crafting like crazy!!


My set begins with a card inspired by the Mosaic design I mentioned earlier. I used a sheet from the DCWV Luxury Stack and cut it into little 1" by 1" squares. Then I used 2 Intricutz dies - one a flourish and one a rose to create that pretty white ornate design on top. I finished with some ItsyBitsy vintage roses, ribbon and beads. This card set the tone for my set. 

         

The next project was a coordinating gift box. I used the same mosaic design to start and added the same die cuts albeit at different locations creating a different layout. The flowers and beads continued here and the DCWV Luxury stack paper continued the colour scheme. 


Finally it was time for the gift bag with a matching tag. Here the beads became the bag handle so both the bag and the tag and devoid of beads. For some relief from the Mosaic style, I made the tag with a simple overlay of pattern paper from the same stack while the die cuts and the flowers continued the theme. 


Now on to the Jewellery Making Inspiration. Our team at ItsyBitsy really went all out to showcase our fabulous product range with this one. 


All the beads are terracotta and they have been painted using our artist acrylic colours. Isn't it just stunning!! Now that's sure to get you crafting!
