June Sneak Peek

We are busy getting ready for June's challenge to be launched next week, in the mean time here is a peek at what's to come. Any ideas what we might be planning as a technique?

The June challenge will be available from 1st June.
We are scraplifting an American designer.
Come meet a new guest design team member too.

For now there is still time to have a go at the May Scraplift challenge 'V is for Vine' which runs until 5th June.

The May 'Thank You' card challenge will continue until 15th June.

See links to both these challenges in the side bar on the right.

Our New Blog Header

Good morning crafty bloggers!

Hope you like the new header we have added to this blog. It was made with as many different products and techniques as possible. We hope that this reflects what this challenge blog is about - encouraging you to try out lots of new ideas and products by learning new techniques and introducing you to different designers each month.

Thought I would identify the different bits and pieces for you here, both for information and a bit of fun.

How about a bit of Eye Spy?

You should be able to see:
October Afternoon papers, sketches, Cricut die cuts, hand-drawn stitches, buttons, hand stitching. ribbon, dry embossing, rubber stamping, colouring with promarkers, PSX stamps, shells, Glossy Accents, dimension, layering, distressing, Craftwork Cards products, Candi, Glimmer Mists, glitter, inking, bunting and more.

Had great fun making this, hope you like it!

May Card Challenge - Thanks!

I hope you all enjoyed last months card challenge?

This months has been set by the wonderful Zoe Pierson, see her blog here.

I'm addicted to card making, scrapbooking and chocolate! My style is quite simple and I struggle with tearing or anything messy! Nice clean lines, bright colours and a bit of glitter keeps me happy! You will see from this blog that I love a wide variety of products but my current addiction is Stampin' Up! I like nothing better than being in my craft room creating. (OK I admit it I organize, tidy and stroke more craft stuff than I use but it makes me happy!)

The theme is "Thanks" using the sketch below.

Zoe made this charming card.

Here are the DT examples:
