CraftyJC Challenge #12: An Inspiration from Shobana

Hi folks!

Here is the last inspiration to get you thinking for our CJC#12: Holiday Favors.
Today we have Shobana sharing her project with us. Let's see what she has in store for us...
"Hi! I am Shobana, and am totally excited to share this post with you today! Many thanks to the Crafty JC team for showcasing the winners in this unique way! It is the very first win for me, where I have got the chance to share my creations this way. I started my affair with paper crafts last year, and I have always loved crochet. I am a self-taught quiller and have recently discovered the joy of quilled earrings! My style is very CAS and I appreciate all the friends I have made in blogland!

As part of the challenge #12 - Holiday Favors - I really had to think of creating something could be easily made and mass produced (if need be) and that any family, whether they celebrate Christmas or not, could have a use for in their homes. And I came up with fridge magnets! These can be made simple or complicated, as time permits, and even your kids can help!
Happy crafting and Happy Holidays too, to all of you! Wishing you a great year ahead and heres to many more Crafty JC challenges! :)"

Thanks for the wonderful idea Shobana! Aren't these totally adorable.
So please hop on to Shobana's blog and leave some love!

CraftyJC Challenge #12: An Inspiration from Juhi

Heya!! Good Morning and hope you all had a nice weekend!
Our second inspiration for CraftyJC Challenge #12 is from none other than the lovely Juhi Khanna.

Let's see what she has in store for us...
"Hi this is Juhi again. I am a card person, I almost never make anything other than cards (and mini-albums at times). I would like to thank Jaya and Indira for pushing me to try out something different. Not sure initially about what to make I finally came across this awesome video tutorial about how to make origami boxes and boy am I hooked! These are really easy to make and look so good.

These are what I came up favor boxes.

So go ahead get those creative juices flowing.....can't wait to see what you come up with! "

Aren't these boxes so damn pretty!! You all must be aware that Juhi is blessed with a baby girl last week, so I take this opportunity to wish her on behalf of all of us and thank her for taking out time to do this project for us.

Do hop over to her blog to wish her and leave some love!

CraftyJC Challenge #12: An Inspiration from Vicki

Hey there! Hope you all are gearing up for the upcoming holiday season!!
Today we have an inspiration from the very talented Vicki, who was one of the winners of Simplicity challenge at Crafty JC.

Over to her:

"Hi, my name is Vicki Dutcher and I am a Stamping Addict! :)  I started stamping about 12 years ago, and have been heavily stamping the last 3 years!  All I do is stamp and I LOVE every minute of it!  

I am excited to share my ABC (anything but a card) project with you.  I'm not sure it is so much "winter", but I love these calendars. So easy; designer paper -- a calendar and a little frame - it's done!  I use mine year round, and I also give these as gifts to co-workers for their desk.

Thanks for letting me share my project with you."

Vicki is a blessed soul when it comes to arts and her creations are just stunning! Check them out for yourself at her blog and leave some love!
