January 2018 - Anything Goes

Welcome everyone to our first Challenge for 2018
Let's see your creative makes with our theme this month - Anything Goes

Happy New Year and welcome to 2018! My crafty resolution is to be a bit more adventurous, and to try journaling, so I've been waiting for the new year to try out my Dylusions Creative Dyary.
I was straight in, without a safety net, and there are lot's more pictures here on my blog. I'll also be putting my 1st of January weight on here, but that's for my eyes only!
By the way, it's only 357 days until Christmas - woo hoo! ;-) x

Hello there! A very Happy New Year to you and welcome to our January challenge! I decided to use some goodies I got for Christmas to make this ATC storage box. For full details please check out my blog here.

Happy New Year Everybody!!!
For our new challenge, I made a New Year card with Tim Holtz stamps and dies.
If you like it and if you want a tutorial, please visit my blog.

  Let me wish you a Happy New Year, full of crafting inspiration and stash!  
  Today I am saluting the cities of the world, well some of them anyway, in a Diorama. 
If you've ever wanted to try Diorama and didn't know how to, come by and check my shortcut to an easy version on my blog.

and Happy New Year !
It's business as usual here and so we are starting a new Challenge today ! Yay !
I have made an art journal page:

Happy new year everyone! I am kicking off 2018 with some sparkle and shine after last night's fireworks to herald in the new year. I have made a new year card.
You might need to put you sunglasses on to check it out, particularly if you had fun celebrating last night 😄. A glass of water  warm welcome awaits you over at my blog here if you would like to see how I make my inky background and put my new year card together.
Wishing you the very best for 2018.
Bye for now,
