Week 298 - Any occasion than Birthday

Hi All

Thanks to everyone that joined in with last weeks love is all around challenge, please check if you are a winner or in our top five.

This week it is me (Tracy) setting the theme and i have chosen


Plenty of scope for new baby, anniversary, Christmas, Easter, mothers day etc., all i ask is that it is not birthday and it is for another occasion!

Our lovely sponsors this week are:

Jiggery Makery My name is Adele, I graduated in 2013 with a degree in Interior Design and I am currently a carer for my Grandma but in my spare time I love designing digital stamps. They are mostly inspired by 1940/50s Pin-ups and can be quite sassy. My favorite Pin Up artist is Gil Elvgren, whose work is just stunning. I have been both a crafter and an artist alternately all my life but finally feel I have been able to achieve a great balance as a digital stamp designer. Jiggery Makery is my brand, my creative expression and a way to share what I love.

I am also going to provide a small crafty prize this week

Week 297 - Love is all around

Welcome to to this weeks challenge, Brenda here with our new theme and a big thank you for all your gorgeous Flower Power entries last week, goodness me you did keep us on our toes and you clearly love your flowers as much as we do. The winners post is below so do check out to see if your name is there.

******Love is all Around******

The perfect opportunity to share some of those Valentine makes or perhaps something for Spring weddings.

We have two fabulous sponsors this week, we probably don't say it enough but we really do appreciate all your support in helping make our challenge such a success....................

At Buttons For Brains we specialise in card making kits as well as an increasing range of craft accessories. We chose to focus on card making kits because they allow crafters to try out different ranges of products without the need to buy complete packs of everything needed to create a handmade card. The card making kits all contain top quality materials and are suitable for beginners and experienced crafters alike. They also make great gifts. Beautifully packaged the items are despatched quickly and delivered first class. We know crafters want access to the very latest products and so will be adding new kits and supplies regularly so remember to visit often or even better, sign up for our Newsletter.

Deedee's Digis offers wholesome digital "stamps" and printable digital papers that are the original creations of Deedee Anderson. All of our sets include both outline and pre-colored images, in both JPG and PNG formats. Our products are offered in high 300dpi resolution so that they are fully resizable to meet your crafting needs. We are a Christ-centered company, and you will find that many of our sets include KJV Scripture verses, in addition to encouraging sentiments of all sorts. We feel very blessed to be part of such a talented community of paper crafters, and thank you for allowing us to sponsor your challenges !

Now for some inspiration to set you on your way................................
