It is the combined collaboration of  a Mother and Son team who both work in the paper craft industry.

Bibbys One of a Kind was established in 2011 out of my passion to create.
 I am a SAHM and spend each day creating something new, I have a facebook page where I do a lot of my advertising and updates ,
and a small blog page which I am trying to grow. 
I make embellishment packs, crochet items, party favours and invitations to name a few. 
New ideas are born regularly. 


The winner of this challenge, as chosen by the Design Team, will receive this from 

...a pack of their latest and most popular chipboard. 
The best thing about this, is that the pack will be different each month and will be customised 
to fit the winners needs. So if you have girls, you will be sent girly chipboard etc. 
And don't forget that they also sponsor our entire Design Team so please see the examples
 above for all the creative uses of this awesome chipboard.  

One RANDOMLY chosen winner will receive this gorgeous embellishment pack from 

Nadia is sending the winner of my prize two of my previous embellishment packs and a 3rd mystery pack with a theme of your choice. This pack will be a 'one off' handmade pack created especially for you! Good luck everyone, Bibby.
Thank you SO much to our lovely sponsors . We couldn't do this without your support!

Love the new look Blog Miss H. You have done a wonderful job and I love the doilies and banner.
Just a note FYI: it took a while to "load" onto the screen so not sure if it is my end or not. I will have a look next time and see if it does the same. Not an issue for me but for those with a slower connection it might be.....
