NEW Sunday Challenge!! We have a Blog Hop and my first DT project for Hobycutz

Hi and Welcome to the Launch of 


and a Blog HoP

 I am a Designer for Hobbycutz and we will be running a bi-weekly challenge and hope you will enjoy the creative projects we will showcase, and that we will inspire you all to come and take part in our challenges.

Kobie is the Owner and Designer of Hobbycutz Lasercutting & Designs and this is her story

I am Kobie and I am the Owner and Designer of Hobbycutz Lasercutting & Designs.
I  grew up in a Crafty family, with a very creative Gran, Mum and even Dad...he was always into woodworking....
I acquired a laser cutter early December last year after having my second child, which made it nearly impossible to return to work because of expensive child care, so I had to look for something I can do from home.
It was the biggest learning curve of my life and never really realised what I was getting myself into until the machine arrived.
But anyway not going to bore you with the rest, I am here and we will have to see what the future holds.....

So to celebrate the launch of this new adventure we are having a blog hop and you have 2 weeks to join in the fun and try and win some prizes.

So I hope you arrived here from Wenche - (No Letter)

If not please go back to the Hobbycutz challenge blog and start the Hop there as You need to collect a letter from each member.

The rules of the hop are as follow:

1. Leave a comment on each of the DT posts as you hop, this is a must to qualify for the prize.

2. Collect the letters from the DT's blog and email with the word they spell (ps they are mixed up and not everyone has one) 

3. Leave a comment on the Challenge blog letting us know which design from the website you like best

4. Display our badge in your side bar to spread the word. 

The winner of the hop will receive a £10 Voucher to spend on the website and two runner ups will receive each a £5.00 voucher to spend on the website.

Not only can you do the hop and win a prize .. but we also have First Challenge running which is


The prize for the overall challenge which will be picked by the Random thingy will be
a £10 Voucher to spend on the website, and I will also give away a £5.00 Voucher every challenge for a Random winner using a 'HOBBYCUTZ' product.

Here is my project for Challenge #1, Anything Goes.  I made a A4 card. I used a film strip and a lovely butterfly from Hobbycutz.  I used tackie embossing powder and scattered glitter on the Butterfly. For the film strip I used a Stazeon Jet Black. It would look very good on a scrapbook page. I had loads of fun creating this. I coloured all the Magnolia Tilda's in with Promarkers. The DP I used is from Paper mania.
