Summer Holidays

Hello and welcome back to another challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges.  The Challenge for the next two weeks is 'Summer Holidays', this exciting topic was chosen by Sandra.

In England and Wales last week (school holiday dates are slightly different in Northern Ireland and Scotland) the schools closed for the long summer break and families are packing for their annual summer holiday.  The weather, which up to this point had been glorious, immediately changed and for the past few days we have been experiencing thunderstorms, flash flooding and even hail.  What can I say?

We would like you to show us your take on summer holidays.  Our design team have come up with some amazing inspirational projects.

This challenge will remain open until 12 noon Sunday, 3 August.  As always, there are very few rules, other then to have fun.  For a full set of rules please see here.

Christmas in July

Hello and welcome back to another challenge at Crafty Boots Challenges.

The Challenge for the next two weeks is 'Christmas in July'.  Can you believe that we are halfway through the year already, which means that there are just 24 weeks until Christmas.  Before we know it, most of us will be complaining that it is almost Christmas and we have not started making our cards yet.  So this is your opportunity to make an early start on your cards and on all of those Christmas projects that every year you tell yourself that you are definitely going to make for next Christmas.

Your project can be anything to do with Christmas, a card, a gift, a tag, a decoration for your walls or your tree - the list is almost endless.

This challenge will remain open until 12 noon Sunday, 20 July.  As always, there are very few rules, other then to have fun.  For a full set of rules please see here.

Our design team have come up with these some amazing projects to get you in the mood:
