Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper March 2016 challenge

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper February 2016 Challenge

A challenge that is always about using
Patterned Papers

I don't know about you, but I have enough patterned papers
to keep me going for a very long time -
so let's make sure we use plenty of them

You may enter any creation on which patterned paper/card has been used - you are no longer required to completely cover the creation with patterned paper, as long as you use some on your creation, obviously the more, the better.

You may enter as many times as you wish during the month and link with as many other challenges as allow you to do so.

As I have an abundance of patterned paper - 12 x 12, 8 x 8, 6 x 6, A4 - I'm giving a prize each month to the randomly chosen winner. I'm willing to post anywhere in the world, so that means that anyone can enter regardless of where you live.

This is the prize for this month's challenge:

The Night before Christmas
Designer Stamp & Paper Pack

8" x 8" designer paper pack
20 sheets - 2 sheets of 10 designs

Before I show you the lovely designs of the team, I want to thank those who applied to join the DT. Please give a warm welcome to two new ladies joining the team:


I've been crafting 'properly' for the past six years although I had dabbled before that on and off. Crafting time is my chill out and relax time! I make cards, scrapbook, art journal and play with altered art too. I am a lucky girl who has the support of my hubby for my obsession (just about) and my gorgeous daughter who allows me time to myself to create (sometimes she joins me too!).


I'm Sandi (aka ..Sandi Lee) I am a Mom to three amazing children. It's hard to believe my oldest is 21. She is in the US Navy and stationed in Japan. My middle is a freshman in college and my youngest is a freshman in high school. By day I am a special needs teacher (grades K-3) and by night my Min Pin/Toy Fox Terrier named Stamper and I enjoy playing in my studio designing cards. I have found that creating is part of who I am and truly soothes my soul. I am looking forward to sharing and learning from all of you here at Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge blog. You can find me at Sandi Lee Scraps.

Here are the Design Team's inspirations:

Using Bugaboo - Houses. Paper is from Stampin Up

Using Tim Holtz Crazy Birds and paper from my stash (origin unknown!)

Using image from The Paper Shelter and paper from DCWV (Once Upon a Time Collection)

Using Bugaboo Stamps and Embellish by Dana papers

Using Kanban supplies, torn paper from PDA Cards and Crafts

Using DCWV Everyday Stack


Using Echo Park Happy Easter Collection

Using Stampabilities stamp and K & Co. paper

Using Aurora Wings Image and Sweetshoppe papers
