"I" Thirsty Thursday

Welcome back after a week off from our regular weekly challenge called Thirsty Thursday where we aim to inspire you with a challenge to quench your creative thirst. Don't worry if this is the first you have heard of our challenges. You can pick up from here and play along or look back at previous weeks and join in those too. This week we are up to week 9 and we are taking inspiration from the letter I prompts below to make a layout, card or another crafty project. So here we go...

I is for INTERACTIVE - Can you make your cards pop and flip and fold? Do you have hidden journalling on your page or another interactive element ? This week we challenge your next project to contain an interactive element.

I is for INK - Be these your ordinary ink pads, the very popular distress inks (stocked HERE in the shop), spray inks or your even alcohol inks; it is time to dig them out for this week's challenge.

I is for IVY - Holly and the Ivy Seasonal project prompt perhaps, or maybe include a stamped Ivy leaf on an Autumnal page. This week we challenge you to include Ivy on your project.

I is for IDEA BOOKS - Do you have a selection of these in your craft room, sitting unused on the shelf? Might be time to regenerate them and be inspired by a project within it. We have a selection of Idea Books in the shop also if you are looking for Christmas gift for a fellow crafter?

I is for INDIVIDUAL - A large individual photograph on a layout can make quite the statement and often need little else adding to the page other than pretty paper of course! Why not feature an oversize Individual photograph on a project for this week's challenge.

Before you head off to play we just want to share as always a couple of inspiring projects from our design team, this week from Jane and Ann.
Jane shares with us an inky page with an interesting design element too.

And another from Jane, this time Interactive with pull out tabs beneath the photo and fulfilling the Individual challenge too!

And finally for this week and IVY layout example for you all by Ann using My Little Shoebox papers.
Early next week we will announce the winner of the Thirsty Thursday challenges from last month. If you'd like to be in with a chance to win a prize from the shop this month simply link your creations using our Inlinkz tool below, or leave us a lovely comment with a link to your page and which of the I challenges (one or more) that you have met with your creation. In the meantime, happy scrapping.
