April 2020 - Animal Magic

Welcome everyone to our April Challenge.

Our theme this month is Animal Magic, chosen by the lovely Corrie. We love you taking part in our challenges so this month, don't forget Animal Magic must be included in your projects to be in with a chance to win a £20 Gift Voucher.

Hello everyone, 

I am happy to be hosting the challenge this month ! I have chosen the theme 'Animal Magic' and that means I want to see an animal, real or fantasy, as a focal point on your project ! 
For my first inspiration piece I have made an art journal spread and of course there is a video too. 

If you would like to see how I made this, please hop over to my YouTube Channel HERE.
You can also go via my BLOG.
I will see you soon for more inspiration!

This is the front of the accordion card I made for this can find the rest of the card plus details of how I made it here. I do hope you can join us this month! Hugs rachel xx

Do come by to read the details of my make, I promise I won't leave you hanging for long!

I think you do agree with me that the Easter bunnies are magical.
They not just paint eggs but bring gifts for the kids 
and they are so cute.
If you need a supply list, please hop on my blog.

It's a covid 19 birthday for me today, yes seriously not only is it the first of the month but my special day. During this turbulent time I have been making cards to send to friends and family so the animal theme for our challenge was perfect. I think everyone, young or old loves an animal card, don't they.
 If you would like to see how my owl took to the skies do fly pop on over to my blog here where all is revealed. I might even share a slice of virtual birthday cake 😁
Take care, stay safe, stay at home and carry on crafting,
Bye for now,

Happy April,
I was really excited when this topic was announced as it meant that I could use the new PaperArtsy Hot Picks stamps which I adore!  Here is my first project for the month.

Pop over to my blog to see how I created this card.
Stay safe and happy crafting!

Good morning and happy Wednesday. I was so pleased to see this theme as I have lots of animal stamps many of which are sadly uninked. But at least this one has been used now, twice in fact!
If you would like to pop on over to my blog there are lots more photo's, and I'll share my sad tale of the silly moo!
Take care and have a great April x

  4. Fabulous inspiration from the team, as always. I'm looking forward to hopping round (like Monika's bunny!) to see the ones I haven't already visited. I'm never sure whether insects count as animals or not, but I'm going to risk it! Have a lovely April everyone.
