Challenge 3 - Nature

This week, we have one of our favourite and popular themes, Nature.

As always, we would like to encourage you to have a go at alternative projects such as altered pieces, canvasses, something other than cards and tags etc, these of course, can also be entered.  As long as it's nature related and a completed created piece.

Sadly, Eileen has decided to step down from the DT, she will be missed and we would like to thank her for all her beautiful work (and the nagging heh heh).  We wish you well Eileen, and we hope your crafting continues to be successful.

February will see a well known crafter joining our DT - watch this space!

Challenge 2 - New Year/New Technique

Now the new year is over and we are settling back into our usual routines, to keep your creative juices flowing this week we'd like to see some new techniques.  This doesn't necessarily mean you have to invent a new one, just try a technique you've never tried before, or try something different.  Remember, it's all about experimenting, think outside the box, outside the 'routine' project.  Have I succeeded in creating a thread there I wonder lol.

Our DT have made some stunning inspirational projects as always.  For more details on how they created their items, visit their individual Blogs (links are always on our Meet Our Design Team page.

Always remember, you can enter any kind of projects, it doesn't just have to be a card or tag, although these are perfectly acceptable, try a canvas, a journal page, altered household items etc etc.

Thank you for joining us, don't forget to check out our other pages, and why not join us on Facebook and Twitter.
