Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper December 2016 challenge

Craftyhazelnut's Patterned Paper December 2016 Challenge

A challenge that is always about using
Patterned Papers

I don't know about you, but I have enough patterned papers
to keep me going for a very long time -
so let's make sure we use plenty of them

You may enter any creation on which patterned paper/card has been used - you are no longer required to completely cover the creation with patterned paper, as long as you use some on your creation, obviously the more, the better.

You may enter as many times as you wish during the month and link with as many other challenges as allow you to do so.

As I have an abundance of patterned paper - 12 x 12, 8 x 8, 6 x 6, A4 - I'm giving a prize each month to the randomly chosen winner. I'm willing to post anywhere in the world, so that means that anyone can enter regardless of where you live.

This is the prize for this month's challenge:

Elegant Christmas Design A5 paper pad
32 sheets
with 4 x 8 designs
200 gsm

I used paper from this range for my own design

I hope you will join in again for this new challenge and that the news will spread even further so that others come and join us too.

December 2016 challenge

If your cards happen to fit the theme for the week on my CHNC challenge blog, please feel free to add there as well and also for my CHNC challenge extra blog, which is always 'anything goes as long as it's Christmas'.

Remember that for this Patterned Paper challenge designs can be for any occasion

Our current DT signed up for six months till December 2016, but I'm pleased to say that most will be staying on for the next six months from January through to June 2017, but, sadly, Kath and Shirley are unable to continue on the team. We will miss you both and your lovely designs.

As a result of the DT call, we are hoping to have two new team members joining us - I will introduce them in the January 2017 challenge post when their designs will be included.

Here are the Design Team's inspirations:
