New Funky Hand Challenge for May!

Oops! I'm afraid I'm a little late with my blog post for our brand new challenge over on the Get Funky! Challenge Blog.  The new monthly challenge all kicked off yesterday (Sunday 15th May) and Kathy is in charge this month.  

Now,she has set us a fab challenge for this month, a craft recipe.  Don't worry if you are not much of a cook (Like me!) as this is a great bit of crafty cooking, which I know you are all good at!  Here are the recipe ingredients and Kathys creation to get your craft juices flowing!


3 different papers
5 flowers
2 buttons
1 length of ribbon (you can chop this up to taste)
A sprinkling of pearls or gems to season.
At least one Funky Hand product must be included!
Now isn't this a fab card?  If you pop over to the Get Funky! Blog you will see lots of information from Kathy about how she made this card and some great ideas about how to manipulate your digital papers to meet your crafting needs exactly.  As always there is a new Freebie craft paper download available from my website  You will find it in the download collection section.  This month is a great kraft paper style design which I hope you enjoy trying out.
I'm looking forward to seeing your creations with Kathys recipe this month, and keep calling back every couple of days to Get Funky! to see more ideas from the rest of the Funky Hand Design Team. 
On the Funky Hand front it's all go here as usual, our latest download Rainbow Stripey Stripes seems to have worked out to be as popular and useful to you as it's sister download Rainbow Polka Dots so thanks for buying those and putting some fab colours into your crafting.  Keep your eye on here and the Funky Hand website for our next download release in the near future.
I'm still working away on the new Funky Hand CD ROM release as well and it's going really well, I'll be back with sneaky peeks of that and lots of other news over the next few weeks.
Enjoy your crafting

It's Get Funky! Anice style again!

It's my turn to put a bit of inspiration on the Get Funky Challenge Blog today for this months Spots and Stripes challenge. So, here's my card..

I made it using spotty paper from the Rainbow Polka Dot Download Paper collection, the stripes are this months Get Funky Freebie Download backing paper which can be found on my website in the download section, best be quick though as it will be changing to a new freebie download paper on the evening of the 14th ready for the new Get Funky challenge on the 15th.  But less of that as you still have time to enter this months challenge first!

The topper was created using two images from the digital stamps available on the latest Funky Hand Papercraft Factory CD Craft The Year Away. I used the coloured version of the cake as I was short of time but you could colour one to match whatever you were creating as there is a black outlined drawing available on the CD as well.  The ribbon and buttons are from a couple of different Funky Hand stash collections all available on the website.

Well, it's been a very busy time here at Teapot studios with Easter sales, new downloads and me working on the paper designs for the next craft CD ROM release.  I hope to be able to share some more info on the new CD soon and when it will be available.

I hope you are all well and enjoying your crafting and this little bit of good weather we have been having recently! Don't forget to pop over to the Get Funky Challenge Blog and take a look at all the amazing creations that the Funky Hand Design Team have created this month, there are some great techniques and tutorials from everyone all month long every few days so lots to inspire you with your crafting.

Speak again very soon

It just never gets old!

I know I've been around in this amazing crafty world for a while now but, I have to admit I still get excited when I see my products in magazines so, I thought I'd share a few pictures of the great spread we have of cards made with our range of Our Betty clear Stamps in this months Simply Cards and Papercraft!

We were lucky enough to have a fab designer from the mag Laura Dougherty working with the Our Betty stamps and coming up with some great card designs.. here are a couple of pictures of the four pages.

As well as using the Our Betty stamp collections Laura also used papers from my last CD ROM  release Craft The Year Away.  This months Simply Cards Magazine has loads of great stuff included in it, not just our stamps! So, go out and get yourself a copy, you wont be disappointed!

Oh, before I rush off back to designing backing papers for my next download release and CD ROM, I wanted to remind you of what I said in my last post about the reduction of the prices for the Our Betty stamps they are now only £7.99 a set.
Also, don't forget to pop over and take a look at all the fab creations from my Design Team this month on our Funky Hand Challenge Blog Get Funky!  There have been some wonderful cards so far this month and plenty more to come before the 14th.  Get inspired and join in with us for a chance to win a Funky Hand download.

Right, enough reading crafty magazines I have to get back to work! Speak again very soon
