All Crafts Challenge Blog hop and relaunch!

Good morning everyone! Hope you are all well :-) I am here with the relaunch of my All Crafts Challenge-I have got some fabulous sponsors on board and a new design team to give you more inspiration of what non card creations you can make :-)
Id like to welcome my new team-May, Lorraine, Lisa Grace, Linda and Deborah-very talented ladies as I am sure you will agree! I am still looking for a couple of others so the DT call is still open so if you haven't heard yet I will get back to you! :-)
Our theme is always Anything Goes but no cards, and each challenge runs over two months to give you plenty of time to create some fabulous non card creations-think jewellery, knitting, altered art etc-basically anything you can think of! I wanted to create a place for people to share the gorgeous creations they make that dont fit into the usual blog challenges-it seemed such a shame for these things to be neglected in blogland! I encourage you to visit my team and the other entrants of the challenge-you may make some new friends and come up with some really great ideas from the inspiration out there :-) I will feature creations which catch my eye during the duration of the challenge and choose a winner via and top three at the close of the challenge.
All I ask for you to get involved is you are a follower of the blog and link your creation using mr linky. I would love if you could add the badge to your sidebar with a link back to the blog :-) If you need any help at all drop me an email-find this in my sidebar :-)
This challenge and blog hop has some fabulous sponsors-
If you wish to win the Crafty Ribbons prize you need to answer the following question and email me the answer (the address is in my sidebar). What are the tutorials Crafty Ribbons have on the pages bar of their inspiration blog? You can find this blog by following the hop below :-)

and Stampin' Up candy from Carole Bryson Wood!

We are very blessed to be joined for this relaunch by Guest designers from Crafty Ribbons and Sarah Hurley's Design teams which is really exciting! 
Lets start with the DT projects for our challenge

I made a bag using Crafty Ribbons 'Sew' ribbons, and Sarah Hurley's 'All Sewn Up!' digi kit. I began by designing my panel in Craft Artist software using Sarah's kit, which I then printed on Printable Cotton. I made a simple tote bag using denim and decorated using my design panel and the Sew ribbons, then added wooden buttons :-)

Now for our hop:
If you visit all the following blogs and leave a comment on each one then we know you have hopped :-)

An exciting new challenge for all my crafty friends!

Good evening everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here to announce something new for my blog that I hope you will all get involved in! :-) I quite often make items which don't fit into a 'card or scrapbook' page category and often struggle to find places to show these in blogland. I thought I would remedy this by making a new two monthly 'Anything goes' challenge where we can all inspire each other with the different crafts we have been playing with! :-) So I mean jewellery, altered items, knitting, etc etc.

I will choose items to showcase on my blog throughout the challenge with a link to your blog to show the talent out there and hold a draw every couple of months of all the entries to win prizes-this first challenge will be sponsored by the wonderful Sarah Hurley-you can drool over all her lovely items at her etsy store here!
I encourage all of you to pop by each others blogs for some fabulous ideas, fun and mostly to meet other like minded crafters and hopeful…
