Life's a Beach or My Holiday Mid Challenge Reminder

It is time for our mid challenge reminder here at Crafty Boots Challenges, the current theme is summer holidays, we have called this challenge 'Life's a Beach', but you do not have to restrict yourself to sun and sand, your project could be about any thing to do with holidays.

The winners of this Challenge will be given the opportunity to be featured in a future challenge as a Guest Designers.  Katrina, Diane and Jackie were all winners of our recent 'Father's Day' Challenge. As you can see,  they are very talented card makers, check out their blogs, you will be in for a treat.


I was born and bred in Cornwall but currently live in Somerset with my lovely husband Will and my loony cat Millie. I work part time as a Receptionist and run a card making club once a month.

I've been doing some sort of craft since I was a girl when my Mum taught me how to knit. Since I would buy whichever wool was on offer, I made some " interesting" jumpers when I was a student. I also flirted briefly with candle making when I was a young teen, melting the wax in a saucepan on my Mum's cooker. I was making a pink candle one afternoon but thought the cerise was a bit bright so to tone it down a bit I added some water to the molten wax. Colour me surprised (and pink) when it exploded all over the kitchen.

In 2006 I was at a loose end after recovering from arm injuries. My friend Kristi made her own cards so I thought I'd give it a try and I quickly got hooked - it's fantastic therapy if you're feeling a bit down. I love stamping as there are so many different looks you can achieve, and my favourite (when I can manage it) is colouring in. I also have a tiny addiction to decorative papers. And ribbons. And buttons.


Hello, my name is Diane Hover and I am from the US in the great lakes state of Michigan  I have to admit I am addicted to paper crafting.  I love every aspect of it and love trying new techniques when I have time.  I have been making paper crafts so long now, I am not even sure when I began, but I think it was when I was sewing crafts I started noticing beautiful papers that reminded me of fabric...I think I now have as much paper as I do fabric.  I have as much fun buying the products as I do using them!!  
Thank you Crafty Boots for having me as your guest designer!!

  Hi, my name is Jackie Cornfield. I am a happily married mother of two and grandma of one. All girls and we adore them!

Card making/paper craft is a massive passion of mine. I try to do it daily! I am on several Design Teams and just love it; blogging has become my major addiction! There is no cure!!

Our Design Team ladies have also been busy making projects to inspire you.
