Button Fairy Tutorial for Crafty Fairy Godmothers on Face Book - Kim Wil...

The lovely Kim has another tutorial and swap for you to join in with.  Sign up for the Button Fairy Swap is by March 2nd so don't miss out.  This swap will be on Crafty Fairy Godmothers, which is our main hub.

Button fairy's add a new twist to decoupage and are very versatile as you can add them to so many projects.


The lovely Kim Williamson (one of our talented admins) has created a tutorial and a swap event for you to join over on CFG Minis.

This swap is already live and you have until Feb 28th to sign up for it.

This is a great little mini to make, especially if you are new to making mini albums.  Quite a cheap too as the items needed can be bought cheaply and you don't need a lot of equipment.

Weekend Challenge

Every Friday, usually around lunch time, the weekend challenge goes up on Crafty Fairy Godmothers.  We are given a choice of three projects to work on and entering earns us points.  You get 1 point for entering (so if you do all three projects you will get 3 points).  We use random organiser to choose three winners and those three people (First, second and third) all get extra points.  It sounds a lot more complicated than it is, but it is a lot of fun.  We have a spread sheet with all of the points on so you don't need to keep tally yourself.

This weekend the theme is LOVE.  We have a choice of making a scrapbook layout, making a valentines tag or making a valentines card for him.

If you would like to take part or just have a look at what is going on, join us over at Crafty Fairy Godmothers.  We are now on week #6, but you can join in at any point and don't worry if you miss weekends as you are free to dip in and out when you want.

We will be announcing the top 3 winners in a day or two.

CFG Craftstruction

Crafty Fairy Godmothers has a sister group called CFG Craftstruction

In this group we focus on 3D construction pieces (mainly made from chipboard/greyboard) and altered items.  We aim to bring you two projects each month and each comes with it's own shopping list and tutorial. 

This month we are featuring a desk caddy (great for beginners) and the brilliant stationary Box that Deborah Hemsworth has created a tutorial for.


We have loads planned for the next six months, so come and take a look.
