Seven Hills Crafts Hellooo!

I’m so glad to be back on the Make The Day Special blog today-
except it’s changed its name. It’s now Seven Hills Crafts
facebook2blogo.. and wasn’t it worth the wait!
The website looks amazing and I can’t wait for a proper explore.
Back to today..
I guess I should have done something all celebratory with it opening, but I’ve got flowers, glitter and a hello instead!
I started with the fantastic die from Neat & Tangled
I wanted it to swing, so once I’d cut it out from some glitter paper (& turned the paper over and die cut again so I had a glittered hoop no matter which way it swung), I added some thread before I sandwiched them together and then suspended it from the reverse of the front part of the card.
For the stamping.. well, I had to use the matching stamp set Hand Stitched..
I wanted to create it using non traditional colours; navy seemed a good way to go! I wanted navy on the front too.
No patterned papers were harmed during the process (!) as it’s all strips of cardstock- great for when you’ve bits to use up, or just easier sometimes to match ink colours or marker colours. The centre is die cut after I’d made the front stripes, which then gave me the chance to twist the central cut out and so play with direction too.
I’ve obviously stuck it into the middle part of the inside, but it adds real interest when stood up and the recipient is looking through!

I added the sentiment coming off at an angle that matched the hanging hoop and popped a couple of little pearls (partly to add a little weight and make the hoop stand still a little better!).
Well, I hope your New Year has started well. Enjoy having a mooch around the site. We’ll all be joining you shopping, and I’ll try not to bump into you down the aisles! ;-).
Don’t forget to sign up on the blog for subscription purposes (see the sidebar).
I’ve got so much to do- I’ve been bought some lovely crafty presents- in fact I must show you them. I’ve lots of learning to do, which is always a good thing!
See you soon ( but minus the chocolates). I love chocolate but I’m trying to pace myself otherwise I’ll never fit into my craft room!

    Very cool. It’s got a ‘girly’ feel but without the froo-froo! Not that I don’t like a bit of froo-froo every now and then, but I like this card way more! The navy is an awesome choice, and I do like the spinner part. I’ll be heading over in just a sec to check out the new SHC. Have a great day.

    Ingenius…that glittery hoop is gorgeous…love the movement. I, too, am on a navy tear right now so these stripes make me very happy. The card looks so clean and fresh, love it.
