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.

February 2016 midway reminder and DT call.

Unfortunately Nana Connie has broken bones in her hand and can't create the reminder post, in fact there is a lot of it about - my son broke his toe recently, my nephew got hit by a car and broke his ankle....... but on the team we have problems too, Marg is poorly with a chest infection, Lynne left with health issues, as you may know, and we are sad to tell you that Tracy is leaving us this month due to other commitments taking over her time.
Anyway we wish all the team members with health problems (and all of you too) all the best for a speedy recovery - lots of hugs to you all!

If we haven't commented on your entry I apologise, with only a couple of us able to (and I have a lot on my plate right now as well as the admin to do), please forgive us. Once we are a fully functioning and fully staffed team things will get back to our normal standard.

So as well as a reminder post, with less that usual examples from the team, this is a DT call.

We really need at least two more team members, if you think that could be you please contact me by email or contact form, email link and form can be found in the sidebar.

We are sponsored by a very generous sponsor The Cutting Cafe for our February challenge.

They are generously providing the following prizes:

1st Prize:  3 sets from Cutting Cafe
2nd Prize:  2 sets from Cutting Cafe
3rd Prize:  1 set from Cutting Cafe

The images and (cutting files in various formats) files kindly supplied to the Design Team by The Cutting Cafe are:

Now for some great inspiration from the team.

Patacake Pat.

I used both the Bendi Card Templates and the Wheelbarrow set on my PINK with Black & white card.

I have used the Bendi Card cutting file and the Wheelbarrow digi from the Cutting Cafe to make my Red with Black & White card.  I coloured the card and images with distress inks and glaze gelly roll pens.

Cazzy and Marg will be along later.

Have Fun - The Quirky Crafts Challenge Design Team.


  1. Oh my goodness, wishing everyone God's blessings and healing for 100% Recovery.

    Beautiful creation with the wheelbarrow!

  2. Sorry to hear of all this. Wishing you all a speedy recovery and every success in the future 😊 xx
