Anything Goes

Welcome to our new challenge here at Crafty Sentiments
Anything Goes 
and what a fab prize we have for you

Before we show you inspiration from the DT
We would like to introduce you to some lovely new teamies!
Anne  - Marie

Hi All, 
My name is Anne-Marie and I have always been interested in card making, but never really got round to it, I left to my Mum. It was when I came out of hospital after spending 4 1/2 months at different hospitals after suffering a major Stroke in 2010.  I came out of the hospital in early 2011, and I told my Mum that I was going to make a Card, well that was it, I was hooked

I have no use of my right arm, can be bit of a problem when that's your dominant hand. I wanted to do something for myself and also to show people that you can achieve anything. 
Because 'Anything's Possible'.
Anne-Marie x x

I began crafting over 6 years ago when I decided to venture into making my own wedding stationery and then it developed into  a hobby where I now try my hand at most things but cards are my passion.
I have a handsome little boy Alex who is 3 going on 30 and he loves spending time crafting with me in the craft room.


Hi,my name is Lisa.I live in a small village in the U.K. With my Husband and 4 gorgeous children.We share our home with our sweet,crazy rescue dog,Socks.I've had an interest in art,design and crafting from a young age.I discovered card making in 2006 and what started as a hobby grew into a passion - although my family would say it's an obsession!I just love to include colour,dimension and texture in anything I make and enjoy colouring images with a whole host of mediums,although alcohol markers are my favourite.I'm so excited to have been chosen as GDT at Crafty Sentiments and just adore all the stamps!!

Now for some fantastic Inspiration for you

No Designer Paper

Good Morning all, wow can you believe it, its the 1st of July today, where is the time going?  Can someone please slow it down!  Anyway before I get down to business with the new challenge for this week I would like to introduce you to 

I am a full time veterinary technician living in Upstate NY. I had been pen palling forawhile when I noticed a lot of my new friends were into crafts and card making. I have never been very good with anything crafty at all. I can barely draw a straight line with aruler but I was determined to give it a try. I fell in love with digital stamps as well as rubber ones and started using them on my letters. Then progressed to making my own cards. I still have so much to learn with all the different supplies and techniques! I am very excited to grow as a card maker.

Please join with me in welcoming Erin to our happy family of crafters that is Crafty Sentiments Designs.

So on to this weeks challenge, I chose a theme of NO DESIGNER PAPERS! and I must say that the DT have provided you with gorgeous inspiration so please be sure to leave them some love and we have a super prize, this week our random winner will receive 

So now to share with you that wonderful inspiration I was telling you about...


using Lilly Fairy stamp

using Day Dreaming

Goldie using Tulips

Christine using Annabel the Mermaid

Aunty Sue using Teddy Jack

Stunning work as always ladies, thank you, so now it's over to you and don't forget to add #3 after your name if used a CS image, #3 if you are a follower of our Inspiration blog and #6 if you've done both, so you could have up to 6 chances to win ... Also if you've used a CS image you could be picked to be our favourite, and have your card placed in members gallery.

Have a great week
love Jac and the Crafty Sentiments DT xx
