Christmas Decorations and a Design Team Call

Welcome everyone, Michelle here and I'm excited to announce our June Challenge.

***************************************

Just before we talk about our new challenge, we are sadly saying goodbye to two our of Design Team members, Marie and Amanda.  A big thank you to both of them for all their contributions to the challenge - we're going to miss them.

This means we would like to add some more members to our Design Team
- would you like to join us?

Here's a bit more about what is involved:

1. Our challenges are monthly and we using digi images from sponsors for the majority of our challenges.  You can see the sponsors we have for this year in the side bar of this blog.  This means you need to be confident working with and colouring digi images.

2. We take turns to host challenges which means picking a theme, sometimes choosing the images for the team to work with, drafting the post (with help where needed), choosing the top 3 and preparing the winner/top 3 posts.

3. Commenting is an important part of the challenge - we aim to have one number each to comment on depending on the size of the team.

4. You need to have a blog and a Facebook account - our Design Team group is based on Facebook. 

5. We ask for a six month commitment - you can of course stay longer but having a six month commitment helps us to plan.

So if all that sounds good and you love making Christmas cards then please think about joining us.

If you are interested, please contact Helen either through Facebook or via e-mail to winterwonderlandchallenge@yahoo.com

This DT call will stay open for the length of this challenge so please get in touch!

**************************************

And now back to our challenge and our theme is:

"CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS"

Christmas decorations come in so many beautiful colors, shapes, sizes and each so unique when you look at the varieties from all corners of the world.  

Our sponsor for this challenge is Beccy from Beccy's Place:


Beccy’s Place Designs by Beccy Muir

My paper obsession began with scrapbooking in the late 1990s and has since evolved into card-making and digital drawing.  There were a few years of decorative painting, teddy bear making and silk ribbon embroidery mixed in there too!  I still dabble in each of those crafts, and many others, but 

I generally gravitate toward paper, which I find versatile and forgiving.
I started “doodling” little designs for cards back in 2009, which is when I started my blog and began sharing my images with other Cardies.  From there I progressed to my very own online store selling digital drawings for cards and other paper craft projects. In 2012, Margaret Myers from Sparkle N Sprinkle contacted me with a proposal to make some of my designs into rubber stamps, which was a very exciting opportunity for me. Four years later, I decided to further expand my business by offering my very own range of clear stamps, which are also sold from my online store. My latest venture is a line of cutting dies that will coordinate with some of my most popular clear stamps.
These days, when I’m not hanging out with my husband and kids, I spend a lot of time with other crafters and card makers, enjoying our shared passion for handcrafts. I can’t imagine a day without some sort of creative activity taking place, whether it’s designing a new image, hand-stitching a little toy or just taking some inspirational photographs.

Take care and stay safe

Your Favourite Colour Combination

Hello everyone and a warm welcome to our May challenge!

We hope everyone is keeping safe and well during these difficult times.  Hopefully crafting is still helping you cope and reducing stress levels.

A big thank you to everyone who joined our last challenge - don't forget to come back on Monday to find out who was our lucky winner and top 3.

YOUR FAVOURITE COLOUR COMBINATION

Our sponsor for this challenge is the wonderful:


Etsy shop here
Facebook Group here
Challenge Blog - here

And here's a bit about All Dressed Up:

Hi, my names Wendy, founder of All Dressed Up. I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children (my inspiration behind the characters) - in particular, my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with trends and all things digital.

 Day to day, I work as a textile designer working traditionally within childrenswear, fashion and interiors. Although my work is mostly digital, my work process remains hand-drawn which I hope comes across in my artwork.

All Dressed Up was created in 2013 as a place to share my digital stamps which back then was a whole new challenge for me. Since, Ive been lucky to have discovered a whole creative community and welcomed the All Dressed Up design team who have been amazing to work with. Through our online community and Instagram, the team keep me on my toes to keep on drawing, creating and inspiring. My favourite thing is seeing how my characters are continually given brand new personalities!

On our Facebook and Instagram page we host regular tutorials, challenges (and freebies!) and is the real heart of our community. The stamps are available from the All Dressed Up Etsy shop which is continually updated on a monthly basis with lots of limited edition and seasonal stamps available in particular.

The All Dressed Up community is a friendly bunch (if I do say so myself!) and we would love for you to get involved, see your work and for you to share your stamping tips too! Do get in contact and be sure to visit our Facebook and Instagram pages to see what were creating at the moment.

Now here's some inspiration from our wonderful Design Team:
