Week 375–Mega Christmas challenge!

*** WARNING – LONG POST ***

Grab a cuppa and a biscuit (or two) and make yourself comfortable!

Good morning dear crafters, we hope you all had a fantastic week last week. The DT really enjoyed visiting your blogs and seeing you fabulous creations for last week’s “eat, drink & be merry” challenge.  Don't forget to check back later to find out who the lucky winner of the stamp set (must be in stock) courtesy of Clearly Besotted stamps will be and also to see who Lisa has chosen as her top 5 Passionista.

Before we announce the details of our biggest challenge of 2016 we would like to let you know who our new DT members will be and who will be joining Team 2 in January 2017.  Please welcome Jacky and Kitty.  Check out their blogs to see their amazing creations.  Thank you to everyone who entered our DT call.

This week we are launching our very special “Mega Christmas challenge” which runs for a whole month and ends on 3rd January 2017!  I’m sure you’ll agree that both design teams have worked extremely hard once again this year and they deserve a little break to catch up on their last minute gifts and cards.  However to make up for the lack of challenges we have some fantastic prizes up for grabs!

Our theme for the Mega Christmas challenge is “use your dies/punches”.  You are welcome to make Christmas cards but as the challenge will still be running after the ‘BIG’ day you can of course make any type of creation as long as you follow the theme.  As time is precious for our DT at this time of year we are limiting the number of entries you can make to just 3 for this month long challenge.  Please remember to be eligible for our prizes you must use your promarkers, flex markers, tria markers, metallic or aqua markers.  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

So now for the exciting bit – the prizes!

Winsor & Newton are offering one lucky winner a Student Designer pack of 24 promarkers

Week 374–Eat, drink & be merry!

Good morning dear crafters, I hope you all had a fantastic week last week.  Thank you for all your entries for last week’s ‘3 favourite colours’ 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 Winsor & Newton 12 pack of Promarkers (neutral tones) and we will also be finding out who Karen has chosen as her top 5 Passionista.

Onto the new challenge, which has been set by Lisa from Team 1, and she has given us the fantastic theme of ‘eat drink & be merry’.  Lisa would simply like you to make a creation that includes some form of food or drink on it.  Lisa would love to see all your Christmas creations but it doesn’t have to be Christmas themed, you can create anything you like for any occasion as long as there is some food and/or drink on it.  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 Clearly Besotted Stamps and they are offering one lucky winner 1 stamp set of their choice (which must be in stock) from their online store.  I know the store is currently closed but Jenny will very kindly send the chosen stamp set out straight away!  They have so many gorgeous stamps to choose from you will be spoilt for choice!
