Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper January 2017 challenge

Happy New Year

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper
January 2017 Challenge

A challenge that is always about using
Patterned Papers

You may enter any creation on which patterned paper/card has been used

You may enter as many times as you wish during the month and link with as many other challenges as allow you to do so.

As I have an abundance of patterned paper - 12 x 12, 8 x 8, 6 x 6, A4 - I'm giving a prize each month to the randomly chosen winner. I'm willing to post anywhere in the world, so that means that anyone can enter regardless of where you live.

This is the prize for this month's challenge:

My Mind's Eye 6 x 6 designer paper pad
Market Street
Ashbury Heights
12 unique double sided cardstock designs

Please scroll down or click here to see the winner of
Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper December challenge.
It's worth checking because it might be you!

I hope you will join in again for this new challenge and that the news will spread even further so that others come and join us too.

January 2017 challenge

If your cards happen to fit the theme for the week on my CHNC challenge blog, please feel free to add there as well and also for my CHNC challenge extra blog, which is always 'anything goes as long as it's Christmas'.

Remember that for this Patterned Paper challenge designs can be for any occasion

As I said last month, our current DT signed up for six months till December 2016, but I'm pleased to say that most will be staying on for the next six months from January through to June 2017, but, sadly, Kath and Shirley are unable to continue on the team. We will miss you both and your lovely designs. We hope you will join in with your entries sometimes.

As a result of the DT call, we are pleased to be welcoming two new team members:

'Hi! My name is Agnieszka, my nickname is chanya13 and I live in Poland. My husband and I have 4 cats and a dog.

I have been scrapbooking for 3 years now and I’m totally crazy about this hobby! My favorite things

to make are cards, ATC’S and notebooks but most of all, I love to make multilayer cards. I also like making exploding boxes and scrap book layouts.

I have my own style and I love to use flowers. I sometimes make my own, either from paper or I crochet them. I add butterflies, different media and lace of all kinds to my projects. I have a weakness for purple and pink and use them quite a lot. Promarkers are my favorite way to color images. Vintage and romantic styles are my favorites and I make a card almost every day.

In my free time, I like gardening, rock climbing, hiking and traveling. I also love photography.

'Hi everyone. My name is Iwona and I live in Poland in a beautiful city Cracow with my hubby and our little baby girl. I was crafting since I can remember. Cross stitch, decoupage, sculpture, clay, jewelery making. Nowadays jewelery making is my job and papercrafting stole my crafter's heart :) The best thing in paper is that it's really a never ending story because there's always a new technique to try out. Come visit my blog at Dwie lewe raczki '

Here are the Design Team's inspirations:


Using Geometric papers from DoCrafts


using Paper Studio "Pixey Stix" Collection


using Basic Grey euphoria papers


using paper from LC Designs


Lynne is unwell and awaiting surgery - we wish you well, Lynne
