Inspirtional Post by Jules

Hello my fellow crafters

As you've probably all seen by now we've had some very sad news here at Bearly Mine Designs that Donna has had to make a terrible decision to close down the store due to new VAT laws coming in on the 1st January 2015.

So here is my second last inspirational post and as promised I did something besides a card.

My BFF's birthday was coming up so I decided to have a look into an explosion card and boy was this a lot of fun to make.

I have used papers from the Mixed Media 2 range both on the outside and the inside, I just love this set of digital pattern papers.
So back to the sad note on closing down, for your benefit Donna is having a closing down sale commencing today so why don't come along a grab yourself a bargin while you can as after the 31 December 2014 they will no longer be available EVER.

So that's me for this month, make sure you head on over to look at all the inspirational post next month as they will be final one for each of the Design Team members.
Happy Crafting.

Some Very Sad News ...........................

There are some new European VAT Laws coming into effect on 1 January 2015 so Donna has had to make the VERY difficult decision to close down Bearly Mine Designs on Wednesday 31 December 2014.

Donna has looked into keeping the Store open but just like some other small businesses around it just isn't viable.

I have been on the Design Team for quite a few years now and have worked alongside some wonderful Design Team Members.  I've been the Design Team Leader for a while sorting out things in order for Donna to design her wonderful papers.  I shall miss working with Donna and the Design Team and thank them for making all their wonderful creations to promote Donna's papers.

Our very last challenge will go "live" on 1 December 2014.

Please make sure you pop along and enter the challenge as a good-bye to Bearly Mine Designs.
As from Saturday 29 November 2014 to Wednesday 31 December 2014 there will be a 50% off sale over at the Bearly Mine Designs Store.

Pop on over to the shop to grab some bargains.

Joyous Greetings

Inspiration Post by Collette
Collette here ... It's my turn for an inspiration post for November, with the theme being Christmas.  I used papers from the newer Holiday paper pack called Christmas Ice.  Here's a preview of the whole pack of papers:
I used the white on white background with words all over, going every which way for the base.  I then used the white on white snowflake paper for the strips.  Stampin Up's Pool Party was used for the mats, card base, and "Joy" (cut from my Cricut). 
The image is from Saturated Canary called Spritz, that was colored with Copics and then die cut using one of the Nestabilities dies.  While it was still in the die, I sponged Pool Party around the edge to give a faux frame.  I sponged the edges of the papers and the letters with the same.  Finished off with a white ribbon.
I love the soft feel of this card, it's very soothing.  I hope you like it as well.
Check out the Bearly Mine Design for our November Challenge:  Christmas/Holiday.
Also, be sure to scroll through the other Inspiration Posts left by the other members of the Design Team.  There will be a new one posted every couple of days.
If you'd like to see more details regarding this card,
please feel free to visit my blog, Heaven Sent For You.
Thanks, Collette

Bearly Mine DT Challenge post by Jacqui November 1st Christmas Cards

Hi there everyone it's Jacqui back with a post for Bearly Mine For this piece I wanted to do something different with the papers to show their versatility. They don't always need to be behind they can actually be the focus of your project. I used a Sizzix Snowflake die it's a big long one that cuts & scores so you fold your die cut up to make these lovely snowflakes rosettes. I used the Christmas Glee Papers for these and used them as backgrounds behind my embossing and my Sentiment. I really like the result too as it's something a little bit different.

Till next time Jacqui over and out.
