CHALLENGE #9 - NEW BEGINNINGS

A big thank you to all who shared their wonderful Christmas Designs with us.  We thoroughly enjoyed looking at your projects.  The winner of our little gift for challenge #8 is No.10, Tracey Clark, as chosen by Random Org Number Generator.  Congratulations Tracey!  Please email Mandy your address and we'll pop it in the post to you.

It wont be long before we're thinking about the New Year and our New Year's resolutions.  But what else will be new in 2011?  Do you know of any babies that are due, someone moving to a new home, a wedding or do you want to wish loved ones a Happy New Year?  This is your opportunity to think about New Beginnings and why we thought it would be an ideal theme for Challenge #9!

Below are our creations for this challenge, we hope they inspire you and we look forward to seeing all your fab creations.

CHRISTMAS TAGS...

These are some of the tags I will be attaching to the gifts I wrap for family and friends this Christmas.  Once the wrapping is complete I will personalise each one by writing the name on the cute little wooden stocking.



And here's my first present wrapped for the teacher I work with at school.

How will you be wrapping your gifts this year?  We'd love you to share your ideas with us.  Please scroll down or click here to read all about our latest challenge.

Don't you just love it when crafters share their ideas and projects.  These snowmen were great fun to make.  Laurie Furnell is the very talented creator of these fab chocolate wrappers, you can find her post here with all the information.  The hats and scarves are made from fleece fabric, Kerry has done a great video tutorial on how to make them.  Check it out here.  Now I just need to make several more!!

For these christmas cards I have used Kanban Embossed Baubles - Monotone Paper Craft Toppers.  I've added a few silver rhinestones to decorate.

I will be making more cards over the next few days so will share them with you when they are done.


For this challenge our little gift comprises of an A4 Natural Cork Sheet, 6 large coasters, 6 large lolly sticks (great for altering) and a selection of clips. 



We look forward to seeing all your fab Christmas creations.  Please leave a link to your project using Mr Linky or send us an email with a picture attached. This challenge will close midnight Tuesday 21st December New Zealand time.
