Nog een weekje en we hebben de eerste wijDUS maand er al weer op zitten.We zijn aangenaam verrast door het aantal blog bezoekers en zeker ook door de hoeveelheid layouts en andere scrapitems die we elke dag weer in onze mailbox vinden. Erg leuk om te zien en te merken dat wij naast elkaar DUS ook heel veel van jullie hebben kunnen inspireren.
Bijvoorbeeld met plaksteentjes, stickels: glitterlijm, brads met een steentje erop of erin, glitterverf en zelfs losse potjes glitter (handig te verwerken met bijvoorbeeld paperglaze) en gaan nog maar even door. Op dit moment kan het ons niet gek genoeg.. we zijn helemaal in to the BLING BLING !
Another week, and the first wijDUS month is over! We were very pleased by the number of visitors and especially the number of layouts and other scrapitems we find in our mailbox everyday! It’s very nice to see that besides us girls we were able to inspire a lot of you all!
We would like to take the opportunity to tell you that if you want to make a chance to win the great give away, you still have one week to finish your TIME challenge or the sketch and send it to us. On February 28th we will randomly choose a winner. So, it’s both the TIME and sketch challenge you can send in, and if you send them in both, you have two chances of winning! On March 8th we will reveal the winner so you will know who can expect that great give away!
We already have had some emails with the question if we are going to show all the layouts you sent in somewhere. Yes we will, on March 8th you will probably see a slide show of all the gorgeous work we have received!
Ok, back to the reason of this post! As promised we will have a SPOTLIGHT post around the 22nd of every month. We would really like to know what you want to know from us, do you have a good question or subject for the SPOTLIGHT? Let us know, and send an email to us at the email address you can find in the sidebar.
This month the SPOTLIGHT item for us is very obvious: BLING! Cause if there is something us wijDUS girls are completely addicted to it’s blingbling! Or better known as HOTFIX or rhinestones.
Behind the scenes we girls send hundreds of emails back and forth about this subject, and not that long ago we ordered a lot of those yummy stones together, which is a lot cheaper. So at this moment we all have lots of stones in lots of colours!
Which gives us the opportunity to thank Peggy, cause we think she’s still counting all the stones in her sleep!!
So this month in the SPOTLIGHT: our layouts with lots of blingbling!
For those of you who don’t know the Hotfix yet, we are talking about really small stones here in all sorts of colours, which have a layer of glue at the backside. With the hotfix tool you heat the stones/crystals until that glue is melting and sticks to your project. Hotfix crystals are great to use on layouts, cards, and other scrap items, but also on bags, shoes and clothing.
Except for the Hotfix stones, also known as rhinestones or crystals, there are a lot of other ways to give your scrap items the GLITTER & GLAMOUR it needs!
For example crystals which already have a stickerlike glue layer at the back, stickles, glitter glue, brads with a crystal in or on them, glitter paint, and even just a jar of glitter (really good to use with paperglaze) and we can go on and on. For now, we at wijDUS are all “into the BLING BLING!”
