Operation Got Paper Rosette?

Happy October!

I challenged The E-Team a couple weeks ago after they all received one of the hottest new dies around, the Paper Rosette from the Tim Holtz Alterations collection by Sizzix/Ellison. This is a thin die and you may need some extra plates to help your get it through die cutting machine.  
 
Please visit The E-Team to see what they have created. Then come back to the eclectic Paperie blog and let me know about some of your favorites. Leave a post and I will be choosing a random winner who will receive the 12 newest Distress Stickles plus your own Paper Rosette Die. Plus, you never know what kind of surprise I may throw in the box. It's the eclectic Paperie way.




Wishing you a great weekend!

Oh my, the creative minds where at work on the E-Team! All the projects are wonderful... but Latrice Murphy's tree and hot air balloon took me right over the top!

Cathy V. said...

I'm blown away by the creativity, all the projects are fantastic...but my favorite is Linda Duke's flower arrangement!

Sandra said...

All the projects are awesome! But it was neck to neck with Linda Dukes flower arrangement & Sherry Cheever's projects .... with Sherry winning by a fraction!

Sherry said...

They were all wonderful, but the one which stood out for me and which gets my vote is Linda Duke's flower arrangement in a watering can.

craftysam said...

Everyone's creations were fantastic!It's hard to choose one, but I would say Sherry Cheever's project was very inspiring and would always be because it would hang on the wall.

josie walrath said...

All the projects were great! It was hard to choose just one but...my favorite was Linda Duke!

Elena said...

thank you so much for the opportunity...I especially enjoyed how each one of your designers came up with different uses for the rosettes...very interesting and it makes the die more than just a one use cut...and that's what creativity is all about, right? Good job ALL! but my favorite was LATRICE MURPHY! What beautiful colors... I loved it!

Janet L. said...

Wow! What a gorgeous display of rosettes. All the projects were so great, but my two favorites were Sherry's and Linda's. I loved the colors, the multiple layers and the final projects of both!

Kathi said...

Everyone made such fantastic rosette projects, but I must say I really like Linda Drake's rosette arrangement the best.

Pattyjo said...

I think the E Team are all so talented! I had two favorites. The first was Bouquet of flowers in the pitcher by Linda Duke. I could really see that in my home or as a gorgeous gift. Then I loved Sherry Cheever "Embrace the Journey" wall plague. She is so creative and talented. I do have to mention one more thing that I thought was so cute and that was Starla's cute baby chick. I would never have thought of that one. How clever!

RRPI said...

I have to say, I LOVE that die!
It is so easy to work with. Your team did a wonderful job creating with it.
My fave was Linda Dukes. I just love everything about how she used the die and ephemera.
I also liked simplicity of Broni's card. It's just enough layers, depth color. Cool!
If you happen to pick me to win, please choose another name. I have the die. Just wanted to comment.

artfuljourneys said...

Wow, They were all inspiring.. but my favorites..it's a tie; is Latrice's hot air balloon. Love the colors. I also loved the out-of-the-box idea of Micki block. What a fabulous baby gift idea. Thanks for all the inspiration this morning. Crossing my fingers, would love to win. :)

Gail said...

I liked them all....but I would have to say that my favorite(since I have to pick one) is Sherry with Starla a close second. I loved the project that Sherry made and I think it was great how Starla used the rosette for a "cupcake holder" on the bottom of her project to hold the item in. Awesome job ladies!!!

Kim said...

Thanks for doing this hop; it answered a few questions I had on the roesette die...and of course, now I want it! My fav piece...Linda Duke..loved the colors. This would be a great southern Christmas Arrangement (I'm from the north...just can't do watering cans..sleighs, yes) But a real close second..Sherry Cheever..real, real close!

billiejo said...

The E team did a wonderful job! I hadn't given much thought to wanting this die, but I certainly do now!!!

It's so hard to choose a favorite, but I have to say Sherry Cheever won my heart with her wall haning, and Latrice Murphy grabbed my attention with her creative vision. I can't wait to lift them both!

Elaine A said...

Hi Daisy -

Your E-Team has outdone itself! What gorgeous and creative works of art! It is very hard to pick a favorite because of the designers did such wonderful jobs. I loved Micki's use of bottle caps as centers, Latrice's idea of using the rosettes as something other than flowers, love Broni's ornament, but I think my favorite is Sherry's canvas. You have an outstanding team!

Elaine Allen

paperpapier said...

I love Broni rosette ornament..oh my..it is really stunning and inspiring, creating an ornament using rosette!

nonnie said...

the silver glitter ornament with the white snowflake peeking out is by far my favorite...what a simple, yet elegant application! thanks for all the inspiration.

Cheryl said...

What?!!! I have to choose a favorite? I have coveted this rosette since I first saw it, before it was available for purchase. I really love all the projects, but I'm going to go with Latrice's this time. First, I love the idea of using the rosette as a sun. I can think of several uses for this one. Second, the colorful balloon and Echo Park paper rosette appeal to me with the bright colors and pattern mixtures.

Jen said...

Wow, I cannot possibly pick a single favorite!!!! BUT, my three favorites were the bouquet in the watering can by Linda Duke, Sherry Clearver's wall hanging, and Boni's bicycle card. Just amazingly gorgeous work, ladies!!!!

Rho's place said...

WOWOWOW! There are so many talented ladies! I very overwhelmed on how to pick one, so I picked three! First, Sherry! I love the style and she has so many do-dads to look at too, so I would take the challenge to do this one soon! Love the colors and so pretty! Next is Linda then Broni, so hard to tell you what I really loved about both, but they were beautiful and so creative. I would definitely do both of these projects if I could.

michelle said...

OMj they are all wonderful projects and such a cool sharing moment.

I can not pick between Linda and Sherry but if I must it would be Linda's flowers arrangement!

Mary Friederichsen said...

Your team to a fantastic job!! So much inspiration...wonderful!

My 2 favorites are Linda Dukes and Sherry's...but if I have to pick only one between them, I think it would be Linda's!

Thanks for all the inspiration today and for the chance into the drawing!

Terry said...

Well I hope being diplomatic does not dis-qualify me from entry. I cannot select a favorite. Each DT member did an awesome project and from each one, I sure got ideas! This was truly not one of the dies on my list and it is now! So I have to say, I loved them all!

laurensmom22 said...

Love all the projects, especially Linda's beautiful arrangement.

And wow, love that die!

Karen Denson said...

All of the projects are fantastic,but there is just something about the journal Sherry Cheever did that really got my juices flowing. It is amazing.

bw said...

They were all super, but I had 2 favorites one was Broni, i liked her ornament and since that is my color theme this yr she gave me a wonderful idea and second was Sherry Cheever's I loved her story on what not to do then how to do it right but it was her project that reminded me that we all need to embrace the journey that life dishes out for us

Sandra said...

well, that question is not fair! All the projects are wonderful! I loved Broni's snowflake - that was fun ....Latrice used awesome colors in her project that made everything pop - Linda Duke's flowers were amazing - Sherry's project was just wonderful, Linda Ledbetter's color combination makes a fabulous flower, Micki's project strikes a chord with mother's everywhere and with the holidays quickly approaching Starla's project has awesome potential as gifts!
Thanks for a fun and inspirational hop!
Sandra

Cathy in Az said...

Holy Cow, how to pick a fav but I think Latrice Murphy rocked my boat with something other than a flower image, that balloon is just terrific. All the entries have their own twist on the project and I like everyone of them.
Gotta love that Tim!

Donna said...

I loved all of the e-team creations (they are all talented ladies), but I'd have to say Sherry's project was over the top for me!

Yvonne said...

Love the design on Linda Dukes blog. So different!

Jolanda said...

I loved all the projects - they are all so different! What fantastic inspiration. It was hard to choose but I think Sherry Cheever's project was my favourite.

Toni said...

Wow - how can you let us choose just one? These projects were so creative - each and every one. I loved the flower arrangement of Linda Duke's - the colors were amazing; I wish I cold create good color combinations. Hmmmm, but Sherry Cheever's creation took me over the top as well - I love that vintage look and all the "findings" on it as well. This die looks like so much fun to play with.

Yelowflower said...

oh my, having to pick one is out of the question, they are ALL so creative!!! I must say, however, that the Christmas ornament that Broni created simply took my breath away! It is beautiful! That hot air balloon made me smile right off the bat too lol

the tips and hints that the artists included in their instructions will be of great help when I get the die, whether I win it or end up having to buy it, I WILL HAVE IT!!!! lol

newfiecrafter said...

Oh all the projects are wonderful but I think there is a toss up between Linda Duke's flower arrangement and Sherry Cheever's Canvas . I love altering canvas so I'm going with Sherry as #1 and Linda as #2
Marilyn

Auntie Em said...

Loved them all...it's so difficult to pick just one. The creativity and talent in this team is awesome!
If forced I guess it's Broni's snowflake ornament! I think it's the glitter factor and the nostalgia flavour that did it for me. I would love to make enough to cover a whole tree!!!
Thanks for sharing! :o)

iluvmybugs said...

What beautiful projects from all the designers!!! My absolute favorite is the flower arrangement by Linda Duke.

This was one very inspirational blog hop...thank you!!!

Gayle said...

Oh my...how beautiful are those Rosette's. Who would have thought that so many gorgeous things could be made out of the humble Rosette.
You have all done Tim proud. I bet he is loving what you have each created.
I love them all but if I have to choose just one I would have to say Linda Duke's her arrangement is just stunning. But I also love the cupcake/snowflake by Starla Nelson.
Thank you
Gayle

Naomi said...

Such creative stuff from the E team. It's hard to choose but I will have to say Sherry Cheevers' was just wonderful. But I must say that I couldn't get Linda Dukes- Just a blank area come up on her blog.

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

I don't know where to start. A terrific Mission Hop. The E-Team went above and beyond.All were so fun. I loved Broni's Ornament..then Linda Dukes, flowers were awesome, Starla's piece was super, but that Sherry, hit my heart with her creation. Just everything about it.
Thanks Mission Accomplished.

Connie said...

This is too hard! I loved them all and thought my favorite was Linda Duke's beautiful flower arrangement then I saw Sherry's artwork and thought I would have a difficult time choosing between the two. But THEN I went to all the others and decided it really was going to be hard... IF I HAVE to choose one favorite I guess it will be Starla.

Debbie K. said...

All the projects were amazing but my favorite was the one made by Starla. That would be an awesome place setting for our Christmas dinner table. Thanks so much for the inspiration. Great job ladies!!!

Deepa said...

That was so fun!! It was pretty hard to pick a favorite, but I love Sherry's project - it was stunning. Linda's watering can project was a close second!

Linda said...

All of the designs by the E-Team were very creative but my favorite was Linda Duke's flower arrangement. Sherry Cheever's project takes second and I liked Latrice Murphy's tree and hot air balloon designs also.

Sharon Harnist said...

Wow, where have I been for the past month?! Congrats to the E Team -- great group! And all fabulous projects. Think my favorites were Broni's.

Susan said...

Wow, what creative uses for this die! I love them all but I think the most original idea was Latrice's tree - it never occurred to me to use a rosette for a tree!
Susan

Linda Carson said...

I want to THANK YOU for showcasing this die! I didn't realize the versatility of it outside a flower. Your design team made wonderful projects from sunshine to snowflakes to hot air balloons! Loved all of them!

Kim C. said...

It was a toss up for me but I have to go with Sherry Cheever's. I loved the metal embellishment she used in the centers. I would love to have that die. I haven't seen it in any of the stores I shop. Guess I will have to get it online.

Janis said...

I love what everyone did with the die, but I especially liked Linda Duke's project. Wonderful!

Rebecca Ednie said...

I really liked Linda's rosettes in the watering can. Very cool die!

janbythesea said...

Greetings,

Wow, you gals are so creative, I found something beautiful in each rosette project ..but my fav was the Bottle Cap Face Flowers by Margie Harper..so CUTE. its impossible really to pick a favorite because they are all ART!

Great HOp, glad I joined up,

Jan

Karla Anderson said...

Hard to pick a fav -loves Starla's with a possible idea for Christmas place setting - but they were all great and I need this die!!

Esther said...

Wow..what wonderfull creations, it was so hard to choose..but I decided on Linda Ledbetter's photo frame as my favourate, loved that the Rsoettes stood out and spoke for themselves without too much fussiness and the Purple adn green colours of her project are one of my fav combinations.

rush said...

wonderful hop! everyone had a surprise. my favorite has to be broni's tricycle card, although all of the projects were inspiring.

mackbrad said...

All the projects are gorgeous - but I think I like the two flower boquers and the Christmas topiary the best!

Liz said...

Daisy, love all the ideas for the paper rosette die but Sherry Cheever is my favorite. She is an awesome artist and I enjoy visiting her blog every day to see if there is something new. Thanks for the opportunity to win. Liz S.

QC said...

They're all amazing, but I adored Starla's Christmas decoration with the blue snowflakes. LOVED it...but it was hard to choose, because everything was absolutely fabulous!!

Toni K said...

Every project was fantastic, but I have to say Linda Duke's was over the top. Amazing!

pj_ireland said...

Daisy, these are all just beautiful! It's really hard to pick a favorite. I pick...Linda flower arrangement because of the versatility. You could use this for different holidays and occasions for both home decor and gifts. Her photos and tutorial are awesome.
Thanks to all the DT members for sharing their creations. I would love to be the lucky recipient of this prize. Thanks Daisy for the opportunity.

Saranne Valentine said...

Oh! what awesome creative projects from some very talented people…Fabulous! just Fabulous!!!!

CuddlyBunny said...

Everyone's creations are fantastic: I love that Linda Ledbetter created a crafty 3D version of your logo, and the flowers, balloons and Starla's centerpiece! Wow!

Still, I might only be a sucker for all things glittery that can be hung here and there, but I must vote for Broni Holcombe's wonderful snowflake ornament!

Playing with Paper said...

Oh Wow!! What a hop that was so many wonderful projects and inspirations truly amazing! So pick one... ok I have to say Linda Duke's flowers in a watering can, really love that!!

Carole said...

All the rosettes are fabulous. Such creative and inspiring ladies. My choice for fav is Sherry's.

Alice said...

All of the projects are super dreamy. BUT I really was impressed with Linda Ledbetter's great project.

Lisa said...

Oh I love all of these ideas! I hadn't thought of a rosette ornament or on a card! Thanks for the inspo ladies! My fav has to be Linda's flower arrangement. So creative, I never would have thought of the little buds!

Joan said...

All of the projects were inspiring. My favorite was Linda Dukes flower arrangement. I also love Starla cupcake holder. Great job everyone.

Lyn said...

What a bunch of wonderfully talented ladies. Loved everyones take on the rosette, all so different, all so pretty. Loved that all shared tips and what to watch for and be careful of. It is so hard to pick just one, but I think for me it would be Linda's flower arrangement in the watering can. Sherry's hanging was beautiful too. Liked the sparkly ornament a lot...Thanks to everyone for a great hop!

Scrappy Mom said...

I think all of the projects were great and it was hard to choose which one I liked best, but if I have to make a choice it would be Sherry Cheever's project on canvas.

Plume said...

I I am just crazy about the rosette die. I must say that all members of the design team surprised me with their ideas. But if you ask me wich are my favorites I will mention Linda
Ledbetter's card for her choice of colors, composition and tricks of the trade to use the rosette appropriately. And I also want to mention Starla's center piece. It is very inventive and I like the base of her creation. I want to make some cup cakes with this technique using the rosette dye.I must have that dye...

Judith said...

Wow, They are all great. I love Linda Duke's flower arrangement. I also loved the table favors of Shara's but Linda's won out.

cjsimplyscraps said...

there were so many great projects that it made it so hard to pick. i think in the end it came down to a love of the papers used in my top 3 choices. my favorite is linda duke.i also want to thank you for putting together such a great tutorial for your project. i picked it before i even saw that though as it was the last project that i got to look at as when i was looking at the other blogs last night linda's was not working. glad i waited. great work everyone....thanks,carol curran

aurorawitch57 said...

Everyone's work is very beautiful, but Sherry's project get's my vote today!

Anne Temple said...

All the projects were great, but I liked Sherry Cheever's project the best. A close second was Micki's with the bottle caps for centers.

Robin said...

Great projects by everyone - it was great going to each blog and seeing all the brilliant ideas. Snowflakes & sparkle just warm my soul! Broni's snowflake was my favorite I mean who would have thought a rosette could turn into a snowflake?

DebbieD said...

WOW! Absolutely the most creative ideas I have seen for 1 die. It was hard to pick just one, but I have to say that after much thought Sherry Cheever's project gets my final vote.
Thanks to each of you for sharing your talent.

Shelann said...

I like them all of course and really enjoyed seeing how versatile the die is. I can't wait to get mine, pre-order is torture! So if I must pick one, I choose Sherry Cheevers, I just loved the texture that the pattern of the paper gave the rosettes.

Karinn said...

I love the look of all the creations created with this new die! I am a HUGE fan of Linda Duke's style, so I have to choose hers. The colors and papers and extras that she chose are gorgeous!

Pamela said...

Wow what incredibly creative minds you ladies have. I loved them all but if i had to pick a favourite, it would have to be Sherry Cheevers Embrace the Journey Plaque.

Susan said...

ok I loved them all and now I must have the die!! But I thinks I liked Linda Dukes' the best.
