This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
your Favourite of either a Paper or Non Paper Project.
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing,a nd we're delighted to be welcoming Squirrel to the team.  :0)

My current favourites are paper projects, although I do like adding non-paper items (like ribbon and lace) onto my projects.  I love the variety of papers you can get and that you can paint your own designs on it too.  I've made a bag-in-a-box for this project, and added some lace around the edges. The handles are made from double sided cardstock, and I've added a little tag with a large flower brad.

I love both Paper and No paper crafts but I am choosing Crochet because I can take it anywhere!

I think I have mentioned before that I love many types of crafting.  I love sewing, needle crafts, jewelry making and paper crafts.  I have to say paper crafting wins because I can complete a project much more quickly.  I love all the fun stamps and papers and embellishments that are available.

I have chosen a paper project. I love all crafts but at the moment my favouite is cardmaking. I love all the beautiful papers and the many images that are available.

It has to be paper projects for me as I don't really do any non-paper crafts...not sure where I would find the time!  Plus I LOVE pretty papers!

Well, this challenge was a difficult one for me, I'll be honest....however...crochet was my very first craft "LOVE" 19+ years I am gonna have to say that if I had to decide between paper crafting for crochet - I'd pick crochet! :)

Bathtime Bobbi
Although I have tried lots of different crafts including flower pressing, knitting, crochet and painting I always return to Paper Crafting for my crafty fix, I just love creating with paper.

Love you tons
Well I love paper projects, especially cards, you can make them so interesting, add a lot of embellishments or make them plain ... there is so many options and that's why I love making cards.

I try my hand at all sorts of crafts including knitting, crochet and sewing, however I LOVE paper crafting most of all, in particular patterned papers and can do soooo much with paper!!


It wasn't a difficult choice for me, having tried many crafts over the years, some more successful than others, I have always come back to papercraft.  I love that you can create something so colourful and/or dimensional from a flat piece of paper!

For me it wasn"t a difficult choice: paper! Although I also like to knit or crochet cards remains my favourite.
