October Winner, Top 3 & DTSM

Hello everybody!  It's time to announce the October Challenge Winner.  There were some really fabulous entries and we always love seeing what you're inspired to make by each theme.  So here is the winner of our Challenge, Top Three & DTSM.  Are you sitting comfortably?  Then let's begin!
The winner of the £20 Country View Crafts voucher, selected by Random Generator from the challenge entries is

#14 Sandra

It's Monika here

Hello everyone,

first of all, thank you for joining our October challenge

Halloween (make a scene).

We had fabulous entries and I had a very hard job to choose only four for the TOP 3 and the Special Mention.

But here are the winners:


#15 Rosi

I really like the Katzelkraft images and stamps and I love what Rosi made with them. Beautifully coloured Halloween scene with one of the Les Pablos.

#19 Tracey

I love the eerie Halloween night scene that Tracey made with only three colours, the black white and yellow. Tracey's creation with the brick wall and cathedral window, with her own painting in the background is a masterpiece!

#79 Lisa

Lisa has created an awesome Halloween scene in a Display Dome. She made lit-up candles from paper using Tim Holtz instructions (I haven't even finished Tim's tutorial yet!) So the candles are fantastic, they  look so real! I love her fortune teller black cat with a tiny crystal ball. It's a fantastic Halloween decoration!

And the Special Mention goes to

#51 Anne

I just love everything on Anne's Vignette Box Halloween scene with the Day of the Dead characters. It's just simply gorgeous how she decorated the Vignette Box inside and outside. I love the colours of the characters and how Anne dressed them up. I have to mention the little silk shawl on the lady's shoulder - perfect. Ann also put a light inside which makes the decoration more special.

Fantastic work all around!  Congratulations - your badges will be on their way soon, and we hope you'll display them with pride and don't forget to join us in our November Challenge Anything But A Card. Stay Safe. xx

Alice Memory Book


Good morning and a happy Thursday. It's a big day today isn't it, we are all going back into lockdown, and the US election results should be in.

 Here's my second piece for our Anything But A Card challenge made with lots of beautiful Stamporia Alice papers.

There are lots more photos here on my blog, so please grab a coffee and join me.

Take care and have a lovely day x

Vintage Tim Holtz festive artist trading cards

Good morning it's Jane here again with some more inspiration for my November "Anything but a card" challenge. I really love making artist trading cards and coins, which I swap. Here are some ATCs I made using my very vintage Tim Holtz set of Christmas stamps. His traditional stamps never go out of fashion in my humble opinion. There is nothing quite like a "real" Father Christmas. I think it is the child in me and my memories of Christmas past. 

I also made some matching artist trading coins, but you'll need to hop on over to my blog here to see them. I have step by step instructions there too for making both types.

They are such fun to make and swap. Why not give them a try?

Bye for now,

November 2020 - Anything But A Card

 Welcome to our November Challenge, chosen by the lovely Jane


 Welcome to November and our penultimate challenge of 2020. I am delighted to be hosting it this month and I have chosen the theme "Anything but a card". So as it says on the tin we would love to see all your crafty makes BUT NO CARDS 😉

I decided to make a journal spread to remember the glorious autumnal colours I am still seeing around me. 

If you would like to see the start the finish process, some close ups, plus the photos which inspired me, just pop on over to my blog here where a very warm November welcome awaits. 
I am really looking forward to seeing all your NON card makes. 
Back again on Monday,
Bye for now,

 Happy November.  I can't believe we are almost at the end of the year. For this challenge I decided to create a tag:

I hadn't made tag art for so long and this made me really happy to create.

Pop over to my blog to see how I made this.
