The 6×4 Challenge is a monthly challenge where you will be asked to create a piece 6 x 4″ in size. There will be a theme set, but the media you choose is entirely up to you.
January’s theme is
Create your finished piece from a 6 x 4″ piece of cardstock. The project must involve stamping in some way.
If you would like the chance to choose a theme for next month, hurry over to www.stampingMadForum.co.uk register to the forum, and sign up to the swap on there and next month it could be you setting the theme.
Best wishes and thanks for reading, see you soon

Previously I was posting over on Windows Live Spaces but there just wasn’t the versatitily that WordPress allows, so here I am. Over the next few weeks I hope to be able to tweek things to get them looking the way I want and learn how everything works here and then we can get some tutorials and other fun stuff on here.
Rather than a blank page in case it takes me a few days to get this going here is the sort of thing you can expect to see on this blog in the coming months
The Virtual Crafting Challenge; Monthly challenges to encourage you to use the crafting stash you have in new ways, or try a craft you haven’t tried before. There will be links to point you in the direction of tutorials and suppliers available throughout the web.
Tutorials; I am one of those people that has to share. If I have found a new technique or can show you how to make someting then I will post a step by step tutorial.
Bookbinding; Well I am new to this but I adore making hand bound books. This section will be mainly a show and tell type of gallery rather than too many tutorials but as my experience grows… who knows.
Links; I spend far too much time online and as a result I have collected a lot of crafting links, where ever possible if I use a product on the blog I will link to the manufacturer of it, so you will be able to source the item from your own country.
Videos; Well we do have a camera so maybe one day I will try make some video’s for You Tube but anything in this section is likely to be a link to a great new video I have found and wanted to share.
Reviews; If I have tried an amazing crafting product and have any comments on it I will use the blog as a way of letting you know how good or not it is. Bare in mind that the reviews will just be my personal opinion of a product.
(Repeats) Since this platform is so much more versatile I hope to re-publish some of my earlier posts from MySpace on here. For loyal visitors migrating with me from the old blog I shall try and mix these in with new things rather than putting too many together.
For me crafting really is ‘All About the Journey’ this has become a bit of a motto for me, as I enjoy the process of learning new techniques and seeing how to incorporate them into my projects. So if you are new and looking for inspiration I hope you will find something useful here, and if you have been crafting for some time try my Virtual Crafting Challenge as a way to take your crafting to new exciting places.
Best wishes and thanks for reading
PS; Now we have the option do leave me a comment
