December Mid-month Inspiration!

Now even though we know you are all very busy as we head into Christmas, don't forget to take a couple of hours time out for yourself (and do some scrapping, of course!) Our mood board challenge is the perfect way to recharge your batteries before continuing on with that seemingly endless "To Do" list! ;)

Here's a reminder of the board...

And don't forget this month's prize is a "Secret Santa" prize from members of our Design Team!

Now here are some more stunning samples from our DT to get you motivated...

Flair from Flutterby Designs

Handmade button (from Ali herself!)

Some gorgeous entries have already been linked up on the blog, but we'd love to see more! Don't forget our Design Team have a "Secret Santa" bounty in store for this month's winner, so be sure to get your entry linked up before the end of the month!
Happy scrapping! :)

December Challenge!

Can you believe we are onto our final challenge for 2014? (No? Neither can we!) Thank you to everyone who entered our November challenge, we will announce the winner in a few days.

This month we have a stunning summer themed mood board put together by our very own DT member Paula Perry. You can be inspired by this board however you wish, just remember to include a handmade item on your creation!

And, we have a special surprise up our sleeve for this month's sponsor...

That's right! This month the sponsor is US!!! And in keeping with the spirit of Christmas, our team is playing "Secret Santa" for this month's winner. Our lucky winner will receive a variety of happy, scrappy, surprise gifts. Doesn't that sound fun?! (Maybe if you are all VERY good, we might post a few sneaks during the month to tempt you.)

Now here is some inspiration from our team to get your creative juices flowing...
