CASE Study Challenge #172

ETA: We won't have a new challenge on the 2nd of January, therefore this one will run through the 8th and the new month of challenges will start on the 9th.

Merry Christmas, everyone!!
With most of the challenge sites taking a break for the Holidays, we thought that we give the opportunity for some crafty fun, for those who are looking forward to getting inky. Therefore we welcome you to our last challenge of 2013 and sending big thanks to all our players for helping make this year fabulous!
Cath from Moxie Fab World is our Muse this month and today's inspiration can be found originally here.

CASE Study Challenge #171

Hello! We're glad you stopped by, despite the Christmas prep heat! It's our last challenge before the Holidays but not the last this year - we decided to get going and give those who find some extra time for crafting on their hands, an opportunity to join in the fun.
Cath from Moxie Fab World is who we're celebrating this month, by transforming some of the older posts of hers and favourites of ours, into the inspiration for all of us. Today's one can be found originally here.

Let's roll in another week of inspiration, shall we? Glad you enjoy the idea of having Cath from Moxie Fab World for a Muse this month, and although it's the first time that the Muse is not contributing herself, the inspiration flowing from the past MFW posts is in abundance! How about this gorgeous wintry cupcake... are you in need for some last minute Christmas cards? This challenge is for you!


Also, just a reminder that this week the search is on for our next Month-Long Guest Designer. If you'd like to be considered for joining us in January, type "GD" next to your name when linking up your entry. Good luck!!

CASE Study Challenge #169

It's time to introduce a new Muse today! But, as you might have noticed in our sneaky peek post, the featured piece is quite unusual... We seem to have left you perplexed about the source of inspiration so let's not wait any longer and introduce our next Muse... it's Cath from Moxie Fab World!


Cath has recently stepped down from Trends Editor position for Paper Crafts Magazine, as well as being the lovely host for Moxie Fab World. This piece of news struck the paper crafting world hard, since we all love and appreciate her tremendous impact on the industry and us creative people. Therefore we decided to devote December, being the season of giving, to paying tribute to this amazing and soulful person. The inspiration pieces were chosen carefully by our Teamies, from the past "Oh My Moxie Fab" posts and they are some of our very favourites.
Sounds like fun? We can't wait to see your interpretations1 The DT pulled it off it a truly Moxie Fab style :)



Note: Cath is not contributing to our challenges herself, in fact we were aiming for this announcement to come to her a surprise, but we're looking forward to being inspired by TWO of our December Guest Designers: welcome Amy and Leigh!!
