Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper September challenge


It's the beginning of a new month and time for a new challenge on my Patterned Paper blog - Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper September challenge - please click on the link to see the wonderful designs of my team - I am so fortunate to have such a talented bunch of ladies.

As the prize for September is a lovely 12" x 12" K & Company paper pad (more details here), I thought I would use similar K & Co papers for my easel card, using some die cuts, corrugated card strip, hearts, bows and lace as well as the gorgeous vase of flowers 106 embroidered topper kindly given to me by Crafty Bren.

CHNC challenge extra for September


It is hard to believe that we are already starting September. Here in the UK the nights are really drawing in (especially on rainy days like today) and Christmas is getting nearer! If you haven't yet started your Christmas cards etc, September can be the ideal time to do so before it gets to the panic season for crafters. I know that many of my visitors have been ahead of the game and entering into my challenges throughout the year, but if you haven't, please step across to CHNC challenge extra for September and join in the fun.

This is my design card using supplies from Bugaboo Stamps who are always the sponsors for my CHNC challenge extra blog. I am so grateful to them, as I know my winners are.

I used digi papers Frosty (red snowflakes) and Girlz Christmas present, adding a big red bow and the sentiment.
