New Get Funky Challenge

Good morning everyone!  Here I am again, late, with the details of this months Get Funky Challenge. Sorry!

Jackie is in charge this month an she has set us a real little teaser of a challenge.  She wants us to create a card or other creation using only a number and some text if you want to add some but NO IMAGES!  Now that will be a one to think about.  Here is her fab step card to get your crafty juices started..

Now as usual the one rule for the Get Funky Challenge Blog is that you use at least one Funky Hand product on your entry.  It's not a really tough rule as each month I give you a total free backing paper which I call the Funky Freebie which is on my website  You don't have to pay for it and they are always relevant to the challenge so you can use it along with your other stash and still have a chance of winning the challenge prize which is your choice of any of the Funky Hand download collections for free.

I really hope that you can find time to take a look at the challenge and the other inspiration cards that the Design Team members will be adding every few days over the month to help you out with ideas.  I can tell you the cards that the Design Team girls make are always wonderful so even just a little visit and leaving a comment to brighten their day would be very much appreciated.

Right I'm off, I have a new download collection to get ready for launch and if the mojo takes me I might have another one hiding here fighting to get out..I've been known to create a whole download collection in one afternoon..lets see if I can do that today!!

Speak to you all again very soon

Demo cards from my TV shows

Hello everyone, I hope you were able to catch my Create and Craft TV shows on Wednesday.  Martyn my presenter and I had a good time, and he is always really good at letting you actually make the demo cards that you have worked so hard on before the shows.

Well I gave you some sneaky peeks of the creations I had planned on making so as I made them all..I thought I'd put the full images on here for you to have a look at.

First up is the exploding box that I made using the templates on the Wishes & Kisses CD. The collection I used was You're Engaged.

Here's a closer look at the lid..

I also made a word book using the word book generator on the Wishes and Kisses CD, the collection I used for it was Hey There Baby

The sentiment was created using the writer in the workspace of the CD and the bunting is one the re sizeable digital stamps.  I coloured it in using Promarker pens. Take a look at my website you will find lots of collections of Promarkers, Aquamarkers and Spectrum Noir pens at good prices.

Finally I made a simple Wedding themed card with a bit of doodling on it to make it more interesting. I used the It's The Big Day collection. The image and sentiment are digital stamps from the Wishes & Kisses CD

I wanted to show that the Funky Hand Papercraft Factory CDs are not just 'click and print out a ready made card' like alot of CD ROMs around are but something to add to your stash collection and use with everything else you own.

Oh before I go, I just wanted to remind you about the Get Funky Challenge Blog challenge for this month.  I set a sketch for the challenge and hardly anyone seems to have been in the mood to take me up on the challenge :(  But, if you pop over you will see the sketch and you still have time to join in (the challenge ends tomorrow evening 14th July) and have a chance to win a free Funky Hand download collection of your choice.  If you don't have any Funky Hand stash yet don't worry, every month I give everyone access to a Funky Freebie download paper so you can join in.  Grab this months quickly from my website as the freebie paper will be gone tomorrow evening and a replacement there for the next Funky 15th challenge.  Don't miss out on it..I mean it's free..are you mad???

Speak again soon

Sneaky Peeks of demo cards..

Hi, I know it's been a while since we have spoken..I've been very busy working on lots of great new craft stuff you'll hear all about in the future.

Here's some news though, I will be on your TV screens tomorrow care of Create and Craft TV. (Sky 671, Freeview 36, Freesat 813 or watch on online ) I will mainly be showing you our new craft CD release Wishes & Kisses. But, there will be plenty of Funky Hand CDs to be seen and also some great deals on the older Papercraft Factory CDs so, if you don't have them yet grab them tomorrow.

I thought I'd not only tell you about my TV shows at 8am and 11am but give you some little sneaky peeks of the demonstration cards that I will hopefully be able to show you.  You know what it can be like on live shows you don't always get to complete or even start all your prepared demos but I've made them anyway!

I hope you can join me tomorrow and if you do, please send in an email so I know there is someone watching!!
Speak again soon.
