July 2018 challenge

If your designs are for Christmas, please feel free to add for my CHNC weekly challenge, which is always anything goes as long as it's Christmas, with an optional theme each week.

Remember that for this Patterned Paper challenge designs can be for any occasion

Before I show the designs of the team I need to let you know that, sadly, Agnieszka and Heidi didn't feel able to continue for another six months till December - we will miss you, ladies, with your beautiful inspirational designs and hope that we will see some of your lovely creations when you enter our challenges.

I therefore put out a design call and wish to thank all those who applied. I'm pleased to say that the following ladies are joining our team for the next six months:


Hi folks,
My name is Gina Morley, and I am a stay at home Mum who is too restless by half. I care for my Asperger's son and Workaholic husband,so I jump from one project to another in the randomness of my days.
I find arts and crafts therapeutic, as well as fun, trying my hand at absolutely anything from "Abstract art" to "Zen-tangling". I also work with fabrics, Quilting, doll making*and am trying to get into making/upcycling clothing*.
Most of all I try to encourage others to be themselves, and arts/crafts (and gardening) are a great way to "find you and stay Younique"
I love all forms of art from soft watercolour realism to grungy gothic horror. This keeps Life a constant adventure.

My name is Wendy and I live in Spain. I have been crafting all my life but got into card making about 2005. 
My blog address is-
I do try to cover allsorts of cards, altered items, gifts etc. etc. I make alot of cards because I supply afew charities in Spain - animal charities and cancer support who need to raise funds for their causes. It is a good outlet for my creations because when we moved to Spain I built up quite a stock in the first few months as you can imagine. I cannot not craft, I have to do something every day near enough, even when we go on holiday I have to take my scissors and decoupage with me.

Here are the Design Team's inspirations:


Papers and everything else from Papillon range by Love to Craft
(same as prize)
