Take 5

It was fabulous to see your bouquet of flowers for Kathy's challenge last month. Here's hoping you like my challenge too! It is quite simple and therefore versatile so you can run free with your creativity

Take 5
I want to see something that uses 5 (or more!) different papers. Simples!

So - any project you like - could be cards, books, hangings, decorations... whatever, it all counts as long as there are 5 different papers within for us to see! The other thing to remember is that your project will only be eligible for the prize if you use at least one Funky Hand product - there are LOADS of papers and extras to choose from so that bit won't be difficult! Click HERE for a quick link to the Funky Hand website ;-).

Here's how to be in with a chance of winning this month's £20.00 voucher to spend in the Funky Hand on-line shop:
1. Add your project to your blog,
2. Don't forget to say which Funky Hand product(s) you've used,
3. Come back before midnight October 31st (UK time) and leave a message with a link so that we can see what you've made.
Here's what the Funky Hand Gang have made this month, we hope you'll find something here to inspire you to join in. You'll notice that some of us are preparing for a certain celebration at the end of December ... and some are in denial... but I'm sure you will find something to kick start your creativity

Allison has made this wonderful card using Now That's Funky Papers and letters from the All I Want for Xmas Trad Wordbook download

Anice made a really romantic card for someone special. It uses papers from the Shabby Saturday download collection and lots of love!
Enfys has made a Wordbook using one of the new downloads ... Xmas Trad Wordbooks
Debs is saying "All I want for Xmas" with this fab dimensional tree

and Jane is continuing with the Christmas feeling. How pretty are these colours for Christmas?
The papers are from Funky Seasons

I'm so glad that Jules is reminding us that there is a whole season to go before Christmas (can you tell I don't like to start preparing yet!)
This richly coloured card uses Colour Me Happy papers.

Lou has made some darling little crackers with the All I want for Xmas download

Clever Kathy demonstrates that a pile of patterns can be stylishly monochromatic with the Salt and Pepper Download set
Ruth has made a wonderful address book to keep her organised using Dreams Come True
and finally I have made a card using Colour Me Happy and my favourite border punch.
Now its over to you. Happy crafting!


  1. Wow, these are stunning. Well done girls! Think I may get on with a memory book using oyur papers for my Dear Old Dad who passed away 10 yrs ago in Nov this year. That would be perfect for using 5 of your fabulous papers! I will be back before the end of Oct! Sheila:)X

  2. This was hard!! But I used five if you count the one my stamp is on! http://ilovepapercrafting.blogspot.com/2010/10/purr-fect-halloween.html

  3. This was a little tricky too - I got 4 down pat - and ran to grab a punch and punched that too from pattern paper! Here is my link to my card

    Thanks for an excellent challenge!

  9. I thought I'd nailed this til I realised I'd miscounted, oh well got there in the end! http://jodpea.blogspot.com/2010/10/5-4-3-2-1.html

  10. Struggled with this until I decided to do some paper piecing, then I managed to use eight papers, not bad considering that three is my usual limit. You can see my card here.
