Design Team Call

Our current design team term has come to an end and I'm delighted to say that some of the team are staying on.  Some are moving on to pastures new and I will miss them as I'm sure you will agree all the work has been fantastic. 

Anyway that leaves me with some gaps in the team to fill so I'm bringing you a design team call.

A little about what we are about - we are a monthly challenge so there would only be one project required per month. I don't rely on sponsors, although they are welcome, so you would be producing work with your own products. There is no payment for work. It is intended to be fun.  You are expected to produce a project (can be anything) every month for the design team term which is for 6 months from June 2012.  I will provide you with the schedule of challenges at the beginning so you can be fully prepared for your 6 months with the team.


Please send me an email titled DT Call to with the following

Your name

A link to your blog or online gallery

Please attach to your email at least three examples of your work

A little bit about yourself and your craft interests etc.

The design team call will be open until midnight on 30th April 2012.

International applicants are welcome

If you are interested then I would love to hear from you.

I have just bought some fabulous new stamps from Jennie at The Artistic Stamper and wanted to share them. They have been just perfect for my journal entry today as the decorating began! I have several of Jennie's stamps now and always find them really good to work with. They are made of red rubber which is just perfect if you like to stamp into UTEE.

April Challenge

Welcome to April.

Our challenge to you this month is simply to use  pastel  colours.  The inspiration is the colours not the picture this month.

There is a prize of the following selection of flowers and embellishments for one winner chosen at random from all the entries fulfilling the criteria for entry.  Only three entries maximum allowed per person, you must complete your project in the month of April 2012, no backdated entries, you must link your actual entry via the inlinkz tool below (please don't just link to your blog - it needs to be the actual entry). International entrants welcome.  Entry is open until 23:59 GMT on 30th April and a winner will be chosen shortly after then.  Good luck everybody.

Here is what our design team have created:

These two lovelies are now 23 and 21 (my niece and nephew). I love using a rainbow of colour and I think pastels really lend themselves to this too.

Easter Wishes

I made some felt flowers and some keyrings.  I have a tutorial over on my blog for the felt flowers 

I couldn't resist a knitted pastel egg this month!!! My little boy (2.5years) is obsessed with eggs, so i'm trying to make a whole lot of mixed crocheted and knitted eggs for him for easter :D
