Challenge 9 Anything Goes

Can you believe we've been running challenges for 4 months already? Wow the time sure flies when you're having fun...

This also means the end of our first DT term. With that we are sad to say goodbye to Louise, Debbie and Margy...

But (in the same breath), we are pleased to announce that we will soon be joined by another 3 very talented ladies. They will start their term in January

Our challenge for this week is "anything goes". We've kept it easy because we know just how hectic this time of the year is.

To get you started, let's have a look what our design team put together





We'd like to wish you all a very happy festive season (whatever you may be celebrating), and and a very blessed new year. If you are travelling, please be safe.

See you again with our next challenge in the new year...

Challenge no. 8

Our design team has absolutely outdone themselves. This week's challenge entries are outstanding.


You can create anything, but a card, for this project. That could be a variety of things... a bookmark... a tag... a scrapbooking layout... a box... anything... as long as it's not a card.

Louise used Sammy Jo on this gorgeous gable box. So festive and jolly...

Gemma has used one of the Christmas Wreaths for this "oh so beautiful" Christmas tag...

Jen has refashioned an ordinary gift bag into something heavenly. And the gift wrap inside matches!!!

Debbie has used the Christmas tree image and used it in this matching card and box set (I wouldn't mind this for Christmas - look inside that box... my favourite ... flat backed pearls!)

Margy has used the Christmas Angel tutorial on CDAC to make this beauty. And she used a border digi on her skirt...

Audrey has made an adorable gift bag using the Angel with heart image from our store... Love the note...

We'd love to see what you create. You have the next weeks to enter. Please try and use a Digistamps 4 Joy image.

1 Random winner will receive 3 images of their choice.
Our DT's choice winner will receive a $6 voucher
2 "runners up" (and the DT choice winner) get to display the top 3 badge on their blog

Wow... another challenge, more winners, and a new format for challenge winners (see below).

Challenge winners for challenge #4 have been announced - scroll down for winners.

Now onto this fortnight's challenge. You Spin Me Right Round!!

The idea for this challenge is to incorporate circles into your project.

The Design Team went all out with this one, and they have come up with absolutely brilliant cards for inspiration.

Margy made this gorgeous easel card - bound to make anyone feel a little better when times are "ruff"... The purple and green colour combo is perfect.

Jen took the challenge literally, and made a spinner card using soccer KC and lots of little soccer balls... Some little boy is going to enjoy playing with this card!!

Louise used Fairy Friends for this cute card (and had her 10month old daughter helping her out, but you can understand why she had to get her hands on it - it's bright and beautiful).

Gemma used Funky Fairy Kelly to make this thank you card in awesome colours.

Debbie went to town with the circle theme, and did a fantastic job of it.

Audrey chose a bright pretty circle patterned paper and lots of scallops. She used the "Let's go" image from our store.

Our guest designer for this challenge is Theresa. Theresa needs no introducing around here, she's participated in every challenge we've had. Thank you for your great support "Tee"...
Theresa used the Daisy Dee image - to go perfectly with the circle theme.

Wow!!! How's that for inspiration... Now it's your turn...
