Week 337 - Anything but a card

Hi Tracy Mouse here and welcome to this week's challenge here at Allsorts, I would firstly like to thank you for joining in with our 'Ribbons & Bows' theme last week, please check the post below to see if you were a lucky winner or in our Top 5.

As it's my turn to host I chose the theme which is

Anything But A Card
(so this can be gift boxes, tags, gifts, etc.......) 
Please NO cards

My theme is to create anything you like, but use the theme and get creative.

The prizes this week are:-

Hello! My name is Mei and I have been card-making for about 3 years now but my tremendous love for it has inspired me to open up my very own online store! Yours and Mine Paper Crafts is a place where you can purchase supplies to create your own projects, or view my gallery for inspiration! We carry brands like The Greeting Farm, Penny Black, Spellbinders and more! All the brands and products we carry are items I have personally used for my own projects and I feel are awesome products that you would like as well. Its my pleasure to sponsor this challenge and as a bonus, use discount code TAKE20 for 20% off my store until the closing date of this challenge.  

Deedee's Digis offers wholesome digital "stamps" and printable digital papers that are the original creations of Deedee Anderson. All of our sets include both outline and pre-colored images, in both JPG and PNG formats. Our products are offered in high 300dpi resolution so that they are fully resizable to meet your crafting needs. We are a Christ-centered company, and you will find that many of our sets include KJV Scripture verses, in addition to encouraging sentiments of all sorts. We feel very blessed to be part of such a talented community of paper crafters, and thank you for allowing us to sponsor your challenges !

Now to see the Design Teams creations and they have done me proud!

Week 336 - Ribbons and Bows

Hello! Thank you so much for your gorgeous entries to last week's  "Christmas" theme. Please look the winners post below.

It's Mervi here, your hostess this week welcoming with a new theme

 "Ribbons and Bows".
Our sponsors are:

Crafty Ribbons is a ribbon emporium, we are passionate about ribbons and want to share our fantastic ribbons with others. Our range of Christmas ribbons is second to none. Remember when we only used ribbons to add a bow to our hair, or tie up a birthday parcel ? Ribbons are now a "must-have" for all types of craft. Whether your project requires satin, sheer, silk, grosgrain, gingham or polka dot ribbon we have them all! Lots and lots of different colours in a range of widths. Need a little bit of ribbon inspiration - then have a look at our projects on our blog,or visit our Inspiration blog,or maybe join in with us at our Challenge blog. Go on, have a look... It's worth it !



Jiggery Makery My name is Adele, I graduated in 2013 with a degree in Interior Design and I am currently a carer for my Grandma but in my spare time I love designing digital stamps. They are mostly inspired by 1940/50s Pin-ups and can be quite sassy. My favorite Pin Up artist is Gil Elvgren, whose work is just stunning. I have been both a crafter and an artist alternately all my life but finally feel I have been able to achieve a great balance as a digital stamp designer. Jiggery Makery is my brand, my creative expression and a way to share what I love. ___
And a little message before our samples:

We feel the need to explain why the DT are unable to comment on some entries - we are seeing an increasing number of entries on third party hosted sites - i.e. not conventional blogs. Usually these entries have no product details or explanations, often no link to our challenge and invariably require those commenting to sign up to the host site. The DT do a sterling job visiting entries, but in future will not spend valuable time trying to find a team member who just might be able to access one of these sites.

Here's the Design Team inspirational samples for you, please click the name, you can visit their own blogs to see the details of the cards - and leave a comment!

Now it's your turn to show us "ribbons and bows", let's have a great week;-))m
