Morning all. As you might have twigged from the post title, I have been invited to join the Design Team of those super talented crafters over at As You Like It Challenge!
This is my first challenge for the team and the theme for this fortnight is
Paper or Non Paper Project
(and remember to tell us why you chose what you did)
Here is my first DT project
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!
I decided to have a go at making a perpetual calendar, which I did completely freestyle with no template. It took the best part of a whole day to make but I am quite chuffed with the end result.
Papers used are all from the First Edition Sweet Owl pad, with the exception of the black card
Numbers done with Memory Box dies
Days with letters from a Clearly Besotted set
Months (cut down, they were too long otherwise) from a MFT Die-Namics die set
Flowers made with Woodware punches and an office hole punch
And some lace trim from my leftovers box
This challenge is sponsored by DIGISTAMP BOUTIQUE with a £10 voucher
So there you have it, do come on over and join in the fun - this challenge is wide open for you to make all sorts of projects, from a simple card through to a wedding cake (if you feel that ambitious!), it's all about your style of craft.
Hugs, Squirrel xx
