As always you can make anything you wish from cards to cakes so long as your creation follows the theme.

Not too many of you joined in last week, but there were some really great entries, don't forget to check out the winners post below to see if you are amongst the lucky names.

Our sponsor this week is Pin and Tack who offer an eclectic selection of handmade items for both the home and crafting from modern to rusty, shabby chic to whimsical. They are offering one lucky winner a $10 store voucher for their products.

And now for some inspiration from the Design Team who have pulled all the stops out again and come up with a fabulous range of inspiration, do pop along to their personal blogs to see how they created their artwork and see more of their lovely work.

Week 212 - Outside the Box

Morning all crafters, Helene here to guide you through this week's challenge. I have called it Outside the box and basically I want you to use something that was not intended for crafting in the first place, like a household item, a candy wrapper, a bottle cap... I'm looking forward to see your inventive skills on this one :)

Sponsoring this challenge is Digi Darla offering 5 images of winner's choice.

Digi Darla 5 images of winners choice

DigiDarla is the brain child of Kim Eskola and her daughter Emilea and both enjoy creating and when the idea of creating digital stamps came up, it sounded like the most wonderful way to earn ever! The stamps you will find in the store and on this site come from our art as well as a few family friends that help to digitize so we can keep up.

And here are the DT contributions, magnificent as always :)
