Challenge time!


 

Yes that is right Crafty Purple Frog is running a challenge for you all :D I don't know about you but I love patterned paper but am not so good at using it 🙈 so this challenge was mainly to help us all use and make the most of our crafty stash. 

We want you to do what is called a 1 sheet wonder. For this challenge we have all used 6x6 papers but for a one sheet wonder any size of paper can be used. The idea is that you take one piece and cut it so that you can use every piece of the paper to make a range of cards or creations. If you want to add some more to the challenge you can try and use just one stamp set for your creations as well as the one sheet of paper but that is totally optional.

The challenge will run until the end of September so you have plenty of time to get creative. The prize is a £25 voucher to use in the Crafty Purple Frog shop on anything you want 😃


I often find if I am in a creativity slump then limiting the supplies I use and taking myself out of my comfort zone can really help me. A one sheet wonder lets you stretch your supplies by getting a lot of cards made in one go. You can find lots of examples of one sheet wonders online so you do not have to use the same ones that we have but the DT have some examples to inspire you here:

If you don't have any patterned paper you can always stamp or stencil a 6x6 piece of paper instead to be able to join in. You can join using the InLinkz below, using the #craftypurplefrogchallenge or by adding you picture to the Crafty Purple Frog facebook group album so there are many ways you can get involved. I will pick one random winner for the £25 voucher.

Huge hugs to you all from me and all the Crafty Purple Frog DT

National Teen Self Esteem Instagram Hop



#nationalteenselfesteemhop21



A great group of crafters have come together to spread love, joy and encouragement to our younger generation. Do you have a teenager in your household or maybe a younger child who struggle with Self Esteem, please share with them the lovely projects put together in this hop and maybe they can take some encouragement away from it!



I made this card for the instagram hop which has ended up being quite large, larger than originally expected which goes to show how many people out there want to show their support and spread some joy amongst the community, don’t worry you have 7 days to hop along so you don't need to do the whole hop in one go :D

Please visit @jasmincraftymakes to find the full line up!

You have until 22nd May 2021 to hop along; winners will be announced Monday 24th May 2021 over on @jasmincraftymakes Instagram.

For my card I used the papers that you can get for free during the hop from Crafty Purple Frog (you can find them on the Crafty Purple Frog blog HERE) and the first Crafty Purple Frog digi stamps which are a collection of cute sloths. I coloured him up with spectrum noir triblends and stuck him on the card with foam pads so he has a bit more dimension. The sentiment also comes as part of the Sloth digi set.





I hope you love this hop there are a lot of amazing creations in it.
Thank you for taking the time to look at the blog. I would love it if you would follow me and leave me a link to your blog so I can follow you back. And don't forget to join the actual Insta hop for the chance to win all these amazing prizes.


Huge hugs
