Challenge #89 - Fish/Fishing

Well have we got exciting news to share with you all today! Yes we're introducing our two new DT members and they've already started to play along.

We were totally blown away by the response to our DT call and would love to have had you all join us, but that just wouldn't work. So if you put DT next to your name and didn't make the final call, don't be disheartened. If you'd like to join us as a Guest Designer for a future challenge we'd love to have you. Just contact Jane and let her know -

We're delighted to welcome:

Lise Mariann

Hi. My name is Lise Mariann and I come from a tiny island in the north of Norway. I am currently living in Trondheim, in the middle of Norway, with my husband, two children and my two cats. I am an archaeologist working with children in the university museum in my city, but in the evenings after my children have gone to bed I am reading books, doing embroidery and of course scrapbooking and making cards. I have been scrapbooking for almost 14 years, but only recently started making cards as well. Heavily into the card making at the moment though. (My husband looks at the growing pile of cards and wonders if we really know this much people... Haha!) 

So excited to be here and I can't wait to play along with you. 


Hello, I am Wei from Taiwan which is an island state like Japan. I live with my hubby and our two girls. I was a teacher and taught Chemistry at high school. For accompanying my little girls, I quit my job ten years ago. For creating my girls' paper toy, I started paper crafting, but I jumped into card-making world in 2016.

I am so honored to be one of this awesome DT.

We know you're going to love their projects and be totally inspired by them.

And finally on to the new challenge! 

So do you like sitting still by a river bank all day waiting for the fish to bite? Or would you prefer to sit at home and craft a fishing project? Whichever it is we hope you'll enjoy creating something for a fella who loves fishing. it can be any type of paper project - card, atc, scrapbook page, ART journal, 3D, canvas, tag......... 

We're delighted to have two Guest Designers for this challenge - Andreja and Diane.

Guest Designer - Andreja
How adorable is Andreja's card, I never knew fishing could be so very cute!

Guest Designer - Diane
And then Diane's card - well who knew it was as much of a collecting stash hobby as crafting!

Both our Guest Designer cards have made me revise my opinion on fishing and see it in a completely new light.

So now it's the turn of TMR DT. An absolute feast of fishiness to inspire you and get your creative juices flowing. And maybe get those other juices flowing and make you feel hungry too!
