Week 88 - Saving nature

Morning all,
I know you have all come across things that weren't really designed as crafting items and thought "hmm, maybe I can use that for something, I'll save it for later". Well, now is the time to dig that stuff out and join this week's recycling challenge.


And... we are thrilled to have Letraset as a new regular sponsor.


Letraset are offering a set of the fabulous new Aquamarkers. AquaMarkers are a dual tipped water based, pigmented ink marker with the advantage of being water soluble. They can be easily blended, even when dried, giving the effects of water-colour paint but with the convenience of a marker. The water colour quality of the markers makes an ideal accompaniment to an artist's tool box, providing a clean and convenient alternative to water colour paints.

The DT have all used Aquamarkers on their work this week to demonstrate the fabulous colours and blending versatility of the pens.


So, dig through your drawers and see what you find and don't forget to write WHAT you recycled =).


It's the final week that Polkadoodles are joining us at our Guest Deisnger and this week Miria has created a lovely card using scraps of Polkadoodle papers, a clothes label and some recycled buttons.



HeleneI started with a paper bag I got when I bought some ribbon, and turned it into a frame and while I was on a roll I cut out some flowers too. The white doily I found under the glass in a hotel bathroom =).




(Red ribbon re-cycled from Christmas wrapping and Aqumarkers used directly onto stamps)

Apologies.....

Morning all!! I am here to apologise for the fact that the winner and top 5 will not be announced today.

My littlest monkey, Alfie, who is just a year old has been a bit poorly this week so between sleepless nights and clingy days where I have had him hanging off me all day I have not had the chance to get round everyone yet. He is starting to feel a bit better so I should have some time over the weekend to fly by everyone and should be back on Monday with the relevant info.

Enjoy the new theme later when it's announced, I think you're going to love it :o)

Week 87 - Male/boy

Welcome to week 87 at Allsorts. A big thankyou to everyone who joined in Kirsten's Teal blue and brown theme, the entries were super. Remember to check and see if you are the winner or if you made the top 5.
This week I, Amanda, challenge you to make a card/project for someone of the male of the species! I have to admit that I sometimes struggle with cards for men and boys so it was a particular challenge for me :o)
This week we are delighted to welcome a new sponsor ~ (click on the banner to go to the shop)


Kristy Dalman, Owner of Some Odd Girl:

“Some Odd Girl is the place to find fun and quirky digis that I know you will love! Some Odd Girl was inspired by two great friends who are such dolls! They took one of my pencil drawings and made it into red rubber and that act of generosity spiraled into what you see today. I am a married FTWM of 2 who has a hubby who not only loves me but supports my crafting and my site as my IT guy. What more could a girl want? I am an artist born who started out with pencils then acrylics and now scrapbook and am a cardmaker. I design things that I love and hope you have as much fun with our stamps as we do! Don't forget about our monthly freebies and SOG Points program

The lucky winner will receive three images of their choice.

We are so looking forward to visiting your blogs to see your male inspired projects.

We are pleased to welcome this weeks Guest Designer for Polkadoodles .......Enfys, whose lovely creation has been made using the Not for Girls CD
