Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper December 2022 challenge


Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper  

A sad announcement

Having run the Patterned Paper blog for eight years, I've been thinking it's time for a break .... this isn't an easy or quick decision, but one that has been on my mind for some time and recent family situations and life in general has made me realise that this is the right decision. I've been through difficult times during those eight years and have never missed a challenge. So the December challenge will be the last one,

I've been so grateful for all those who have been on the design team over the years, including, of course, the present ones. So many have shared their inspirational designs and so many wonderful crafters have entered the challenges to share theirs.

December 2022 Challenge

A challenge that is always about using
Patterned Paper or patterned cardstock

You may enter any creation on which some patterned paper/card has been used - please remember that you must use some patterned paper/card

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.

Thank you for all the lovely designs shared with us last month

December 2022 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/card challenge designs can be for any occasion

Here are the designs from myself and the rest of my wonderful team - I am so blessed to have such an inspirational lot of crafters:
