Challenged by Alison Bomber and Winners

Last week we had some wonderful projects from Jo Myhill. It was fun to see the wonderfully festive Advent calendar and whimsical house come to life, fantastic projects that can be used for many years to come. It was great to see how many of you were inspired by the dreamy,shabby chic heart canvas. 

Thanks to everyone who joined in and made projects alongside Jo.

1. And the winners are...
Random winner #1 from the First Challenge draw (every single entry linked, including multiple entries) is: Claire


 Congratulations, you have won a PaperArtsy A5 stamp of your choice. 


 Random winner #2 the winner from the Second Challenge draw, (only one entry per name)
 is: Karen.C

 Congratulations, you have won a PaperArtsy A5 stamp of your choice.


*Winners please get in touch with Darcy (darcydotneedles@hotmail.com) with your full  name,  address and choice of stamp plate. 

2. The week ahead...
Coming up in the week ahead we welcome back Guest Designer Alison Bomber. Let's see what she has been up to since we last saw her. 

Over on Alison's blog there are some gorgeous projects. This stunning winter canvas has so many delicious layers. One photo cannot do it justice, go over and see the whole project. 

Another recent favourite on Alison's blog is this journal page, what can I say other than just beautiful. 

Finally, Alison's process for transforming this bottle is mind blowing, who would have guessed that it started life as a bottle of balsamic vinegar!

Alison's first project will be up soon, so get comfy, we are in for a real treat as Alison does some festive upcycling. 

3. Challenged by....{Alison Bomber}

I do hope that you will find time to join in with Alison's techniques this week. You can link to your own blog, Pinterest or Flickr pages, or any webpage that shows us what you have made in response to her posts this week. Just come back to this page, and use the linking tool to show us your entry.
On Sunday 8th December  by noon (GMT) you need to have your link entered below, and you will go into one of 2 draws to win new stuff.





  • The first draw is for every single entry listed, so if you have multiple entries, you get entered multiple times. The second draw is only for one entry per name, and the winner of Draw 1 is not included in this second draw. Having 2 draws makes it fair for everyone, no matter how many times you can join in during the week.

  • As this challenge is to show how you have been inspired to action by this week's designer, make sure in your blog post you explain what prompted you to create.

  • Please don't feel you need to copy a designer's work, it may be one small aspect or idea that you want to explore that sends you into the creative zone. You are also welcome to use any stamps/ products / substrates you have to hand, we do not expect you to exclusively use PA products - but of course it is lovely when you do!

  • The winners are announced Sunday evenings in the 7pm blog post (as above). It is your responsibility to check back and see if you have won. If you are a winner, email Darcy darcydotneedles@hotmail.com with the name of the stamp you would like, and your snail address. We do not chase people for unclaimed prizes.

  • If we are away at an event, then the winners post would generally be updated by Monday evening with draw details.
