Welcome to Quirky Crafts Challenges

Welcome to Quirky Crafts Challenges the place where any craft project is allowed.

We're a small design team with big inspiration.

On the first Sunday of the month, at 6pm UK time, we will set a new challenge which will close on the 28th of that month at midday. The DT will pick their top three favourites and you could win a prize and join us as a Guest Designer. Winners are posted on the first Sunday in the month (midday usually) before the new challenge - don't forget to come and check if you are a winner.

It is with great regret that over a few months we have had some design team members leave and go on to pastures new. We wished them all the best on their new Journey thanked them greatly for being a part of Quirky Crafts Challenges for the time they were with us.

Sadly I myself now am having to leave the challenges due to time and commitments that are needed within my family and working life.
I hated saying goodbye to the girls and leaving the challenges behind, but I just cannot commit to them and hate letting people down.

Luckily for you the girls want to continue with the challenge blog so the challenges will run as usual on a fortnightly basis. I'm sure they will keep you posted on the goings on.

I wish all the best to Anne, Cazzy, Caro and Lyn with the challenges and I'll try to pop in for a challenge as and when I can.

Thank you for taking the time to read this

Challenge 33 - 15th August - Anne's recipe

Quirky Crafts Challenge 33

Firstly thank you to everyone who joined in with our Sketch Challenge and thank you for coming back to us after our summer break.

Onto this weeks challenge which is a RECIPE by Anne

Your project must include the following:

2 different patterned papers, 1 ribbon, at least 1 eyelet and some shrink plastic.

We'd love to see your interpretation on this recipe and are happy to accept cards although we would prefer to see altered art or scrapbook pages or metalwork or stitching or some other interesting crafty creation.
Leave a link so we can pop by to say hello
