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.

Reminder for Challenge #21 It's all about Girls and only two colours (that's Quirky)

Hi everyone, it's reminder time! You have until Saturday 24th October (at midday UK time) to play along.

I have to laugh sometimes at how some people read (or clearly don't) only part of the challenge details, and they then pass it on to their followers who don't read the details either.

 We have a lot of very nice entries from people who have only noticed the challenge is about two colours, and have not picked up on the girl part. Some of those have actually got a girl on their project - but only by chance because they don't mention it, and of course those entries are eligible to be voted on.

The ones that have nothing obvious to do with girls will not be voted on, but thank you for sharing with us and I really hope you can enter a second project that can be voted on. I have been telling people individually if it isn't quite right. One rather scary scull card has been removed by it's creator after I commented that I couldn't really see what it had to do with girls.

I will tell everyone again, and I have changed the title, this challenge is about GIRLS, and you should only use TWO COLOURS, with extra colours allowed IF you use a stamped image or digital image, for the hair, skin and maybe tiny details. But the important thing to remember it is about the Quirky GIRLS!

We have three great sponsors for this challenge and they are:

The prizes for our top three as voted on by the team are:

1st place - 4 images of your choice from Sweet Pea Stamps

2nd place - 3 images of your choice from Jiggery Makery

3rd place - $5 voucher from Digital Delights

Here is some more inspiration from the wonderful Design Team, all of which includes those essential GIRLS, and two main colours!

Doris has used Princess from Jiggery Makery, and Princess was a limited edition digi which is no longer available. When you see them you need to buy them before they go! 
Doris also used purple and green on her pretty card.

For my easel card, I´m using this stunning digi from design by Meredith Dillman "Steampunk Fairy" and provided by Sweet Pea Stamps.

The girls we like to have fun, go out and enjoy the music, the image I used is Penny - Pin Up inspired Digital Stamp - Party Themed, sponsor Jiggery Markey

This post is very special for me, is my last post as part Quirky Team. Cazzy thank my teammates and your support, your friendship.

 In my project I'm using the seal beautiful Karen Middleton 's Summer Fairie our sponsor Sweet Pea. 

 I chose for my project a beautiful garden where this cute and sweet fairy rests. 

I put my project light, allowing us to enjoy another form of this beautiful garden. Quirky's friends, we will be in touch with the technology that has allowed us to share at this time. 

Hasta Siempre!

Sorry I'm late, I'm trying to get back to normal. This card is using Fairy on a Stool by Sal Scheibe from Sweet Pea Stamps, she is so delicate and pretty yet modern. My colours are yellow and brown. Flowers from Samaflora.

I love the attitude of this digi, she is Zoimar Lezama's Kitty Queen from Sweet Pea Stamps. Colouring went a bit wrong, I will explain on my blog. My colours are pink and black as you can see.
