It's Halloween!!!

Welcome to the last week of October! It's Maureen here and I hope you are all looking forward to Friday night - I know I am and the kids are too! But before that, we have a Halloween challenge for you. Our sponsor for this week is Alicia Bel and she is offering 3 images from her store for our winner. We would love to see your crafty Halloween creations whether it be a card or something more dimensional. Just have a look below to see what our Design Team have been doing this week!



 Julia - Malefica

   Carole - Lily Monster


Maureen - Berta Barton







And we have some talented Guest Designers joining us this week too! Why not pop by their blogs for more information and inspiration.

Jo from Siggi Shop
Hi, I'm Jo. I'm very happy to be here today as a guest designer for Crafting By Designs.
I live in the West Midlands (UK) with my husband and son. We also have 2 grown up daughters who have both moved out into their own homes. My youngest daughter got married earlier this year, and gave birth to our grandson, RJ, a baby brother for Mikey, who make me so happy & proud!
I've been crafting for close to 10 years now. Mainly card making, but have dabbled in jewellery making too. You can find my personal blog at http://siggi-shop.blogspot.co.uk


Gale Knight from Gale's Stamping Corner
I have always been a crafty person, but have been making cards for several years. So, now that I am retired, I have more time to enjoy my craft. I love using digital stamps and bringing them alive with my Copic markers.




Thanks to the Design Team at Crafting by Design for inviting me to join them this week for the Halloween Challenge! My name is Kim L. and I love playing with paper! Card making is my main love but I've been known to create a few mini albums or in the case of this week, some treat boxes! My new Grandson Calvin (Callie to me) inspired me to make these, even tho he's only 7 months old, I will be giving them to the 4 little girls he goes to daycare with. I hope you all have a nice Halloween and a blessed upcoming Holiday season.

Well, I'm sure you will agree there is lots of inspiration to be found here. I hope you will join us for this Halloween challenge and I cannot wait to see what you come up with this week!

Ugly Paper Challenge

Hi! Sharon here. I'm the hostess of this week's Ugly Paper Challenge. The theme is to create something with Ugly Paper. Well maybe Ugly is too harsh of a word, maybe we could say the theme is to create something with the most non-attractive piece of paper in the stack.
Eureka Stamps is one of our favorites and they just happen to be our sponsor this week. The prize they are offering is 5 digi images of your choice. How cool is that?
So without further ado, please stop by and show them some love and then check out the wonderful creations from our design team.
Maureen - 1805 Bat


Doris - pumpkin




Tammy - 5605 Sm Best Friends

The challenge will run until October 21st. We can not wait to
see your creations! You all inspire us so much!
