August Challenge - Pockets!

It’s Dolly here this month to set the challenge. But before we get on to this months theme I’d like to say a big THANK YOU to all who joined in with Ruth's 'Something New' challenge last month – Lots of lovely entries but there can only be one winner, so scroll down for more details.

Happy Birthday Get Funky!!

Would you believe Get Funky is one year old today, and hasn’t the year just flown?
To celebrate our first birthday we’re offering more prizes this month but on to that a little later firstly let’s get on with this month's theme which is ...


It could be anything you like – a card, a mini album, a wordbook as long as it has some kind of pocket and you use at least one Funky Hand paper or extra.  Now on to the 3 all important rules.

1. Add your ‘Pocket’ project to your blog,
2. Don't forget to say which Funky Hand product(s) you've used,
3. Come back here before midnight August 31st (UK time) and leave a comment with a link so that we can see what you've made.

The prize as usual for the winner is a £20 voucher to spend on the Funky Hand website plus blinkies for the runners up.

*As an extra something to celebrate our 1st birthday all entries that follow the 3 all important rules will also receive a prize.*

Our DT have made these fantastic ‘Pockets’ to help get you started. Be sure to visit their personal blogs for more photos and info on their projects.

Ruth has used papers from Colour Me Happy to make this fab and funky 'Thank you' pocket. A lovely photo of her 2 boys too.

Kathy has made this elegant heart filled 'Anniversary' pocket using Colour Me Happy

Don’t you just love the colour mix on this 'For You' pocket from Kath, so cute. 

A 'Stitched' pocket from Jules, using Colour Me Happy. I love the key and keyring, so clever.

Funky Hand meets Tim Holtz on this pretty ‘Flower’ pocket from Enfys. The flowers were made with TH dies and FH digi stamps from Dreams Come True, genius!

Anice has made a ‘Christmas’ pocket, teasing us with new paper designs from the soon to be released FH Christmas download. Love the candy cane.

A fab ‘New Baby’ pocket from Allison, using that cute little elephant digi stamp and papers from Colour Me Happy.

And I (Dolly) have made a 'Gift Card' pocket, using papers from Colour Me Happy.
Looking forward to see what you all create using pockets. Don’t forget the extra special birthday gift on offer this month all you need to do is follow the 3 simple rules to win a prize.
