New Year, New Monday Challenge!

New year, new week, and a new challenge at the Monday challenge blog! This week we’re kicking the year off with celebrating new and/or old things!

An old favorite technique of mine is to “clean up” by grabbing whatever is on my desk and making a project! Here I’ve made a pocket tag with loads of Tim Holtz + Ranger goodness. Can you guess why?


If you guessed because I had just finished working on projects for them (CHA trade show is just a few days away!) you’d be correct!


I just love what that texture paste + a stencil does – love it!


Another “old” favorite of course is black stitching – love what it can add both texture and color wise to a project.

Supplies Used:


The year is off to a great crafty start – what are you making?  Simon is, as always, offering a generous $50 voucher that will be randomly drawn from the eligible entries each week. Join the fun by creating a project this week – and for your chance to win a $50 voucher you should hop on over and join in the challenge here. What will you feature? We can’t wait to see!
