This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Colour Combo: Blue + ? (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:


Anne
I think blue along with green and brown are the colours of nature and they go with anything. I love pale blue and white together and I just added a touch of yellow on this card for a new baby boy






Blue is one of my favourite colours, and I love pairing aqua-blue with pink for a feminine touch.  





Since some consider white a color so I'm going with my favorite blue and white.  I love the crisp coolness of these two together and it makes me think of the beautiful Delft Blue china. 





Elaine


I like blue with a touch of yellow. I think it has a lovely fresh feel. 






I love the combination of blue and red. They look amazing together and for my project today the red added the perfect christmas feeling for my project.



I love blue and green together and it's a perfect combination for any type of card from flowers to snowmen!




 I love blue and white together for wintery cards. I think the combination adds to the coolness of a winter scene.




Blue is not a colour I use very much, however, I do like it teamed with a soft pink so this paper pad was perfect.



Blue and Red, no choice, it just is.





Blue and Red! I am not a watersports enthusiast but I just love the nautical look.
Or maybe because these are the colors of our national flag.


So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.

Good luck, and happy crafting.

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Non-Card Project (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

I don't often make anything other than cards but when I do I really enjoy it. This was one of my favourite projects, some paper cacti and I was pleased with how they turned out





I really love making these supersized tags. They're great as a change to making cards, and lovely to use to decorate a present for someone special.  I've made the base shape myself using a stitched rectangle and oval stax die.





I sometimes make jewellery and I especially love being able to make custom pieces with special charms, like this one.





I enjoy making bottle tags. I think they make an ordinary bottle of wine look extra special.





I love making little gifts for people and this time I have made something for my sister-in-law. I have decorated a chocolate bar for her as a nice little gift. Because of Covid-19 we can't see each other very much and I thought it would be fun to give her (and my brother and nephews) a little gift. I really enjoy decorating those little presents to make them extra special.





This year I will be doing my Mum's Christmas shopping for her and I thought it would be nice to make sure she has all the wrapping paper, ribbon and tags too, so that's where I started....with the tags!





Just recently I have rekindled my love of fabrics. While looking for suitable fabrics for face coverings I found some really lovely Christmas fabric and felt so have made a start on some decorations. Quick to do during these darker evenings.




I'm not very well organized when it comes to present wrapping but, on those rare occasions when I do get my btm into gear, I love gift boxes.  I'm currently loving the kraft and white combination and I think it works really nicely for a festive gift.





I like to make wreaths. This one is with mussel shells. I love the gorgeous bleu colours and the pearly shine of the shells.





So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.

Good luck, and happy crafting.

This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Your Favourite Brights or Pastels (& why).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:


Anne
It does depend on the occasion but I love brights. I like to add some black in there too which really makes the colours pop


 


I knew as soon as I saw the challenge theme that I would be choosing pastels but having now seen my card I'm worried that I've gone a little in the middle.  I much prefer the muted tones of pastels, especially pink and purple so both have featured on my card.





Hmmm, brights or pastels, it really depends on the image or occasion.  For this image, I love the pastels because they are soft and sweet, just like this cute bunny.






Elaine


Hard to decide, I do like all colours. It all depends on the mood I am in. Today I was in a pastel mood, I love these LOTV papers which inspired me to colour this image.






I like both pastel and bright colours, but I am not doing really well with pastel colours. Sometimes I try to make a card in pastel colours and then I am adding too much colour and it becomes a card with bright colours...lol. I love making Halloween cards and they really need bright colours, so I went for bright this challenge.




I love brights and I love pastels but it all depends upon the type of card I am making. I've gone for brights for this card - they just suit this little penguin so much.





For me it all depends on who the card is for and, with this card being for a baby, I have gone for pastels using my favourite baby paper pad.




Most of the time I am a bright and breezy kind of girl so it has to be bright colours for me, especially on these contemporary style Christmas cards.



I actually had to look back over cards I have already made because in my head I was thinking "pastels", but it seems that, in reality, I favour brights, quite a lot of brights if truth be told!




No question about that: bright colours. Bright colours always make me happy!





So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
