Your entry to Stampalot Challenge this month


Happy Sunday everyone.

I know it's almost the end of the month, but I need to tell you that quite a few of your entries have apparently not registered on Mr Linky's list this month. 

So if you thought you entered and wondered why none of the DT have been round to visit you, chances are your entry did not register with Mr Linky so you will need to do it again. 

Just go the the Mr Linky entry widget as usual, enter your project..............we realise that some of them may be entries from earlier in the month but given the circumstances these will not be viewed as back linking............and please make sure you can see your entry box before you navigate away, if you can't see it then neither can we and won't be able to comment on your entry.

February Challenge


Good Morning everyone, it's time for a new challenge and this month we are thinking about Spring and Summer and those lovely lighter brighter days and inviting you to join us..................................

In the Garden

Plenty of scope there and we hope you will share all your lovely garden inspired work with us. This months challenge will run until midnight on 29th February.....................and that's the four yearly date tradition says's us ladies can propose apparently !!

Andy and Janice are due back from the big USA trade show CHA any day now and with them news of all the new goodies that will be coming our way over the coming weeks, as well as the new crafting trends that we will all want to be trying out. But if you just can't wait and want to get ahead of the game, I can share a few pictures with you and if you keep an eye on the what's new section here and here you will be able to pre order so your goodies are on their way to you the moment they are shipped and landed.

The new Tim Holtz Distress Markers, who won't want to get their hands on some of these ? I guarantee blogland will be full of talk about these.

This fabby machine is the answer to all my prayers, an electronic die cutting and embossing machine, large enough for A4 carstock and Grand Nestabilities. How good it that and before you ask, yes my name is already on one.

Kaisercraft have launched lots of new goodies, DP, embellies and chipboard kits like this "desktop spinney tidy thingie" - Janice's words !


And of course Penny Black have come up trumps again with some fabulous new stamps. This is sneak peek on one of the beautiful cards on display using one of the new images. I can't share the whole card until they are on general release later this month.

Back to this months challenge and as always there is a fabulous prize on offer from Sir Stampalot and of course the chance to be selected as one of our Top 3. Here's the prize full of gorgeous garden inspired goodies..........................................


My wonderful DT girls have come up with some beautifully inspirational work as always and as I looked through their work I really did believe Spring was just that little bit closer.

We also have a Guest Designer this month, Lai Yoke who has made these beautiful pieces to share with you. Please do pop over to her blog to find out more.





Have fun with our challenge this month, good luck to you all and we look forward to visiting all your wonderful entries

And please remember, you can combine your Stampalot entry with up to five other challenges.

January winners


Good Morning to you all, time for some winners from our January challenge and what a mammoth month it turned into, you really did love our monochromatic theme and we saw some really awesome piece of work on our DT rounds. And that means we had a really tough time selecting our winner and Top 3, but we had to narrow it all down as we always do.......that's the very worse part of the 'job', so here we go.

In top spot and winner of the fabulous Hero Arts prize from Sir Stampalot is......................

What a stunning wedding card and candle
