Crafty Ribbons Challenge 'Back to School'

Good morning everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with my 'Back to school' project for our challenge at Crafty Ribbons this week :-)
I used ribbons from the fabulous collection of 'Jam Pot Ribbons' from Crafty Ribbons which have lengths of complimenting ribbons in a bundle for you to choose from :-) I chose the cherry red set shown here :-) I bought a faux leather padded notebook a little while ago which was nice, but the cover soon showed signs of wear-I didnt want to have a scruffy notebook so I dug out my material offcuts and fragments and found enough denim to cover the book. I then removed the elastic from the notebook and made sure I put it on top of the denim so I could still use this feature of the original notebook-it was the most challenging part of the redecoration to be honest but totally worth it for the end result. I then decorated the book with polka dot and gingham ribbons from the Jam pot collection :-)

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments :-)

All Crafts Challenge August/September!

Good morning everyone, I hope you are well :-) I am here with the new All Crafts Challenge for you. 
First of all thank you so much to everyone who made the relaunch a success-the sponsors, my fab DT and all of you! I really appreciate your support in creating a space for us to share non card creations :-)
Tania has kindly chosen our top three this time-and I will be back with the random draw winners soon :-)
Thanks Elaine,
and many thanks for all your wonderful entries, 
I really had a difficult time choosing my top 3.
But eventually here they are

I thought this was stunning, and both Elaine and I love butterflies.

I loved your blog and the photos of what you used and the stunning butterfly too.

I loved this Jen and appreciated all the hard work that went into
the project.

So on to our current challenge. 

We start with our fantastic sponsors this time

As always our theme is Anything goes...but no cards! So we would love to see anything else you can think of to make-altered items, jewellery, knitting, scrapbooking-the list is endless! It may be a way for you to think out of your comfort zone and use some of your wonderful crafty stash in a really different way! 
As always our challenges run over two months to give you plenty of time to participate. All I ask is that you are a follower of the blog and link your creation using mr linky. If you want to add the challenge badge to your blog sidebar that would be wonderful and we would really appreciate it!
We have a couple of new additions to our DT so please join me in welcoming them-youll love their gorgeous creations as much as I do I am sure! :-)
Our DT member Linda had to step down due to other commitments but we just wanted to wish her all the best and to say we will enjoy visiting you to see your journey in your lovely new ventures :-)

Our design team have made some gorgeous creations this time-remember to pop by at the start of September to see the midway inspiration from our team B too! :-)


I cant wait to see what you create this challenge-I am always so happy to see such wonderful pieces of art! 
As always please pop by the other entrants to see what everyone's been up to and to maybe make some new crafty friends along the way :-)

Thank you for visiting today and for getting involved-I love seeing all your gorgeous creations! Remember NON CARD projects please. If you would like to be a guest designer please put 'GDT' after your name in Mr linky :-)
