Today we are launching a new crafty project that we would love for you to be involved with!

It is called 'Try It Tuesday' and we thought it would be a really nice way for crafty bloggers to test out each others tutorials and share some love! Not only is it great exposure for everyone involved, but it is also a really good way to make friends, form connections, and get inspired. There is nothing better than knowing that someone has tried out your DIY and loved the outcome. And that is what we want to promote. Our aim is to spread the crafty love! :)

What you need to do:

1) Find a tutorial in the blogosphere that you would like to try out. And get crafting!

2) Take a photo of your finished item and post it on your blog (on a Tuesday) crediting the idea to whoever designed the tutorial. 

3) Tweet the person/blog and let them know you've tried their tutorial using the hash tag #TryItTuesday. 

And that's it! If someone tweets you to let you know they've tried one of your ideas out, retweet them and thank them. This creates exposure for both parties involved. Happy days! 
If you've posted a tutorial and want people to give it a go, use the hash tag and promote your DIY. You don't know who might give it a try.

What do you think? We would love for you to be involved. We feel the world of craft bloggers could do with a bit of promotion, and what a great way to get started. Please do spread the word and get lots of lovely people involved. Follow us on Twitter for more information and to let us know what you think and if you are taking part in #TryItTuesday. We'll make sure to retweet every post we see :)
If you would like a #TryItTuesday badge to stick on your blog, then please do drop us an email (trendswb@gmail.com) and we'll get one over to you!

Can't wait to see all of your creations!
Lots of Love,
