Guest Designer - Cathy Frailey

Hello everyone, today we have a very special Guest Designer; Cathy Frailey  from It's Oddly Appealing.






 I'm a mixed media artist from West Virginia, USA. I love mixed media, art/junk journaling, & upcycling and use everything from cardboard boxes to utensils to cans & bottles - nothing gets wasted! My style is grungy, vintage, steampunk, odd - anything weird & different & experimental but I can incorporate any style. You can see a good cross-section of my style & projects on my blog! I'm a DT member (past and present) for various craft companies, such as Emerald Creek, Canvas Corp Brands, and A Vintage Girl. I'm also a contributor to Mixed Up Magazine and have my own challenge blog - Bleeding Art.




If you want to create a fun Christmas vignette but are tired of using the same old things like wood or cardboard boxes, try using a tuna fish tin!  I kept the lid attached so that it would fold down and I could create even more of a scene! You can get food tins in all kinds of sizes so you can go mini to tuck into a small place on a shelf or super big and make a village!






Thank you so much to Cathy for sharing her beautiful creation. Please do check out Cathy's blog

Guest Designer - Yvonne

Hello everyone, today our featured Guest Designer is Yvonne from 'Yvonne 3D card' who was the winner of challenge #2.




I live in the Netherlands in the old city Delft, I make for many years cards.
I love to make 3D scene cards because they come to live and that looks very great.
I am making design cards in two teams for my Besties for a couple of years now.
Also love to read history books and love to do Diamond painting as well.
So I am a busy woman but I love to do all these things, living next to my parents
so I can help them with things they are not so young anymore...
