Anything Goes - Part 2

         Welcome back to the second installment of inspiration from the Our Creative Corner team!

        Thank you so much to all of you who have taken part so far in our 'Anything Goes' challenge. There has been an amazing response and all the team have had so much fun visiting you all and seeing what wonderful creations you have shown us.

   Thank you so much for supporting our first challenge as a new team - we are so very grateful.....

       The first two weeks of the challenge started with half of the team showing you some creations to lead you on your way down your own creative path - Now the rest of the team are here to provide you with even more inspiration!

       I am sure you are impatient to see what has made for you to view here no more talk from me!....I present to you the fantastic creations from the Our Creative Corner design team!


I created a vintage style booklet, telling about yet "untold" stories that may have happened that way in historic places but have never been told (as I believe it is the people who have been to them that "write" the stories and not the places themselves). And in a certain sense of the meaning we write history every day, don't we? Therefore I tried to keep the pages stories rather sketchy - so there is room for imagination and poetry.

I have a passion for and am totally inspired by all things Tim Holtz and Wendy Vecchi. I made this piece for a very special friend, for whom the words are totally appropriate.

I was in a girlie mood and wanted to use some of my lovely Pion Design paper.  I also pulled out an old goodie Wendy Vecchi stamp set to use for the sentiments.


This tag was the result of an impromptu crafty tutorial session for a friend completely new to crafting.  I was just grabbing anything to show her what was possible, and she followed along with her own version. 
      So it's got Distress Inks, Stains, stamping, embossing, wrinkle-free distress technique, spritz and flick, die-cutting, punching, and ribbon dyeing - a bit of everything and anything, and I ended up really loving it - so it seemed perfect for Anything Goes!

There are two more weeks of our challenge why not have fun creating
anything you want and join our Anything Goes challenge
