Challenge #2

It's time for our second Design Team challenge, and this week it's for both scrappers and cardmakers!

The challenge is to create a LO or card that includes hand cutting and/or handwriting.

So many of us hate our handwriting (I know I do!) but it can give such a personal touch to a card or LO (especially when it comes to journalling), so this challenge is set to make you use it more!!

And the hand cutting? Well this came about from a personal challenge, I've always been rubbish with a pair of scissors (give me a trimmer, or craft knife and ruler any day!) so I challenged myself to get better. Trimmers etc are all very well but you're limited to straight lines! So on this LO I drew round a dinner plate for the first circle, then sketched and cut the larger ones. The papers I used (for the card and LO) are from the English Paper Company and just happen to be on BOGOF in our new webshop. Check them out here.

Don't forget to post a comment with a link to your creation, or email us at so we can add it to our challenge gallery.

Have fun - can't wait to see what you come up with!
Edited by The Guv 6/8/07 at 5.25pm: Sorry guys - having problems with the links not being live (& we'd love your stuff in the gallery) sooo please e-mail your images (as jpegs please!) & post a comment to say you've done yours - we also then are able to comment on your entries (ha! I just discovered that bit - so there aren't any comments on challenge #1 as yet LOL) Thanx!!
