Week 383–something new

Good morning dear crafters, I hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Thank you for all your gorgeous entries for last week’s ‘clean and simple (CAS)’ challenge.  As always it was lovely to see your wonderful entries and the DT had a brilliant time visiting your blogs.  Please remember to come back later as we will be announcing our lucky winner who will receive the $10.00 gift certificate courtesy of The Paper Shelter and we will also be finding out who Andie has chosen as her top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Ali from Team 1, and she has given us the fantastic theme of ‘something new’.  Ali would simply like you to make a creation to celebrate something new I.e new house, new baby etc or alternatively you could use some new stash on your creations I.e. new stamp/digi, new paper pad etc.  Easy peasy, right?  Remember you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card.  As always to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products (promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, aqua markers or metallic markers) and of course follow the theme.  Please can you help us by stating which Letraset products you have used on your creation I.e. ‘coloured with promarkers’ etc.  Thanks x x

Our generous sponsor this week is DigiStamp Boutique and they are offering one lucky winner a £10.00 voucher to spend in their online store.  Some of the DT were lucky enough to use images from DSB on their creations this week.

Week 382–clean & simple (CAS)

Good morning crafters and Happy Valentine’s Day, I hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Thank you for all your entries for last week’s ‘I {heart} you’ challenge.  As always it was lovely to see all your wonderful entries and the DT had a brilliant time visiting your blogs.  Please remember to come back later as we will be announcing our lucky winner who will receive the Promarker 6 pack of pens in rich tones courtesy of Cowling & Wilcox and we will also be finding out who Shelly has chosen as her top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Andie from Team 2, and she has given us the fantastic theme of ‘clean & simple (CAS)’.  Andie wants you to step away from the embellishments this week and try to make your creation as clean and simple as you can.  We know it’s difficult for us crafters not to pile on the embellishments but that’s what challenges are all about right!  Remember you can enter using any type of creation, it doesn’t have to be a card.  As always to be eligible for our prize draw you must use your Winsor & Newton (formerly Letraset) products (promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, aqua markers or metallic markers) and of course follow the theme.  Please can you help us by stating which Letraset products you have used on your creation I.e. ‘coloured with promarkers’ etc.  Thanks x x

Our generous sponsor this week is a new sponsor for us this year - The Paper Shelter - and they are offering one lucky winner a $10.00 gift certificate to spend in their online store.  There are so many super cute images available you will be spoilt for choice.  Some of the DT used one of their images called ‘retro chic’ on their creations this week.
