Challenge #32 ~ 'Open Theme' Sponsored by TRIMCRAFT

The winner of last week's challenge who was randomly selected is Gail ~ Congratulations and please let us have your address:)

The theme for this challenge is 'Open Theme' so you can create whatever you like for Arty Girlz this week.





Our challenge is sponsored by Trimcraft who contacted Arty Girlz as they are about to launch their exciting new website on 1st May ~ Here's some info...


Trimcraft is the first social network website set up especially for crafters. This amazing new website boasts tons of fantastic features including: create your own profile page, search and add friends, message and contact other crafters in real time, monthly competitions, create your own project gallery and watch Craft videos updated every week. Enough to keep any crafter busy for a long time!

Inspiration hits you at every turn with Craft videos showing you the latest techniques and tips and forums enabling you to discuss ideas with fellow users. One of the best features is the ability to show not only a full project gallery, but to add instructions and to comment on others projects and even add one another as friends!Not technically minded? Don't worry.
Trimcraft has been created with you in mind. All our features are user-friendly and mean that using the site will always be a pleasure. If you do have any questions, we have a full team of friendly staff who will give you a helping hand.

Taking crafting into the 21st century, this website provides a solution to every crafting-need. There is even a great feature where users can contact local demonstrators to ask questions about upcoming or past demos. You can see the full profile of the demonstrator including profile picture and past projects they have done.

Bursting with content and activities, the only problem you will have is ever logging off the site!Pre-registration is already kicking into gear with all those pre-registered having automatic entry into a prize draw to win £1000 worth of craft vouchers from their favourite stockist. Get in ahead of the crowd and be one of the first to have access to some of the fantastic features on site launch. A website that will truly be at the top of everyone's' favourites list.

Click the banner to go to the website :)




Crissi and I were very lucky to be given special early access to the site and it really is amazing!! There's literally everything that you need in one place and the site is so easy to navigate. Don't worry though we resisted the urge to type 'Arty Girlz were here' on the message board ;)



Trimcraft have been extrememly generous and one random lucky person will win this brilliant prize and there will be further sponsored prizes from Trimcraft in the future so keep an eye out for them ;)


We were also lucky to receive the same as the prize offered to use in our examples this week ~ here's what we did...

Hi - I've been amazed at the creations on this website for some time, but as I'm more of a 12 x 12 scrapbooker than a card-maker, have never participated before. As this is an "open" themed week, can I submit a 12 x 12 entry? Here it is - tfl...
