I’m Black & Blue …….


… from pinching myself silly!!!!

I still cannot believe it but I am part of the new Pink Petticoat Creative Team.

So all week I have been biting my hands to stop myself from shouting this from the rooftops but I managed it and today I am able to share at  last :)


When I first started blogging, the first cards I ever put on here were made using Pink Petticoat papers (the post is here and if you think the photies are bad now, wait till you get a load of those bad boys!!!). 

Over the years, I‘ve continued to be a huge fan and love the products as much now and when I first started to use them as you probably gathered cos I do use them an awful lot!!! . The colour palettes suit my style so well and there are always the solid papers there so that everything co-ordinates -  I like that.

Plus everything is always on trend and always so pretty.

The card was made using Vintage Rose papers and sentiment ribbons


as were these Cutting Cafe nesting boxes.

What do you think is in them?

Leave me a comment with what you think and if you’re the first one right, I’ll send them to you  with one or two little extras :)


I’m still in ‘making decorations from punches’ mode. These are similar to the ones on the  Lili Of The Valley Thursday Challenge card but I made these a little bit differently and included a  Wild Orchid Crafts paper rose


So that’s my happy news peeps.

I have to say congrats to the other girls as well, Leann, Vicky and Katie,  and I cannot wait to meet the rest of the team throughout the rest of the week.

See you tomorrow, mmmwaaaahhhhh :) xxxxx

Jules said...

Many, many congratulations Dawny on your brilliant news.

So well deserved.

Your projects are gorgeous and as to what the boxes hold .. .. .. they will be full of love with perhaps one or two flowers thrown in for good measure LOL!!

Looking forward to seeing even more creations from you.

Love Jules xx

PepPop said...

Congratulations on your new venture! Loving you work (as usual), the boxes are beautiful. Jaqui x

Berni said...

Dawny, these are fabulous, I love them. I'm sure these contain chocolates, because chocs and crafting go together!!

theCook said...

Congratulations! I didn't know this company. I currently only buy "real" paper as I don't have any confidence in my printer to give me great papers...
I'd say the boxes contain chocolates... or small craft items such as buttons, brads or charms...

Miria said...

Hi, Dawny. These papers and ribbons are gorgeous and the flowers as well! What's in the boxes? It's difficult to say, here in Italy boxes of this kind are usually for weddings, to put in sugar-coated almonds ( in Italian they're called confetti). Are there "confetti" in the boxes? Thank you for the chance! Hugs. Miria

Fae said...

My guess would be flowers too but if I had to guess again, I would say maybe die cuts or paper shapes???

Great boxes. Simply gorrrrrguss.

Wendy M said...

Congratulations on your Pink Petticoat DT post.
I am guessing that there are some buttons in the boxes.


Anne said...

Huge congrats Dawny. As for what's in the boxes - a cupcake in each? Hugs x

Katiejane said...

Wow CONGRATULATIONS Dawny! Your projects are gorgeous, no wonder you've been chosen. I'm so pleased to be on a team with you again it's been such a long time since we were at "Willow Designs Challenge Blog" together. what could be in those boxes??? First thought chocolate but I thought that may be too obvious so my guess is a small selection of embellishments?
I can't wait to see your projects each week.
Congrats again, Katie xx

Leann said...

Feels a bit like coming back to our crafty home doesn't it? ;)
