21 April 2014


The challenge for April is to create a paper based project - card or scrap or similar - and to do it without using a stamp AND incorporating in it either a bird or an animal!

There is also a TWIST - to use pastel colours!

Our wonderful Sponsor this month is REGAL CRAFT:

The very wonderful DT here have created some more beautiful inspiration for you but before we look at that, we have a guest designer this month

Our Guest Designer in April is
Victoria Botham

Hi everyone, I’m Victoria (although usually known as Tor or VeryBelleMakes!) and I’m from Essex, England. I am a stay-at-home mum to two great children, aged 7 and 4. I’m also really lucky to be supported and encouraged by a very patient husband, who regularly has to wade through a ton of glitter just to make it to his desk next to mine!

I have enjoyed card-making since my early twenties; I drifted away a bit when my son was small, as there were never enough hours in the day, but now that the children are a little more independent, I’m enjoying picking up where I left off!

Thank you very much to Susan and the Unstampabelles team for having me as a Guest Designer this month!

They are just so cute!!

Now, for the DT work!

Julene has made a  birthday card

Jane on 'beeing' happy!

Using Kaiser craft paper,  chipboard tag from Unique Paper Graphics Graphic 45 chipboard tags which were free with a magazine and happy birthday sticker.

Plus scrapbook page using Easter papers

Susan using freebies from magazine; egg die; letter dies - Regal Press card blank

Tracey using a Penny Black Christmas sticker and dollar store sentiment sticker...who says Christmas can't be pastel!


Well,  there you have it folks - and all that time over the Easter break too - so why not have a go at a card or page or paper item for our current challenge! Looking forward to seeing what you create. 


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. The Design Team really appreciate it. Have fun with the challenge.
