All Crafts Challenge October/November!

Good morning everyone! Hope you are well :-) I am here with our challenge for October/November :-)
Thank you so much to everyone who entered our last challenge-we are blown away as always by the skill and gorgeous projects you show, and it means a lot to our team that you join in with us and to create a place to share the fantastic non card projects you create :-) If you are looking for my project please look at the bottom of the post :-)

Our challenge as always this time is Anything goes...BUT NO CARDS! So we want to see a showcase of all the wonderful projects you make which dont fit into the traditional card challenges in blogland. We want to see anything-jewellery, papercraft, altered items, knitting-the list is endless! If its creative then its welcome here :-) It may be an opportunity to use some of your existing stash in a really different way! :-)
As always our challenge runs over two months to give you plenty of time to create! All we ask is for you to enter is follow the blog, and link your project with mr linky. We would really love if you could display the All Crafts Challenge badge on your blog to spread the word about our challenge :-)
Our sponsors this time are:

Our talented DT have made some lovely creations for this challenge-remember to pop by on the first monday of November to see the midway inspiration post by our talented team B too!

For my project I created a panel with Sarah Hurleys 'Gatsby' digi kit and a Bugaboo image in Serif software then printed on canvas. I then sewed this onto a gift bag, and made a gemstone watch as my gift. I used Ametrine, Amethyst and Swarovski bicone beads, a pretty clock face and a heart toggle clasp. 
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

I cant wait to see what you all create for this challenge and thank you for getting involved, as always I encourage you to pop by the other entrants for inspiration and to make some new crafty friends :-)

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
