January Challenge.

Welcome to the very first challenge for Daring You To Scrap!
I am so excited to welcome 2012 with a new challenge to dare you with!!!

Firstly I would like to announce the sponsors for January.

Sponsor 1 - Polly! Scrap Kits & Supplies - $10 voucher
Polly! Scrap Kits is a new kit club & supply store. It has it's own forum, gallery and monthly challenges. Kits are realeased monthly and at very reasonable prices. A subscription and pre-order service is available to make ordering your kits easier!

Sponsor 2 - Charm's Creations - $15 voucher
A bit about Charms Creations.... I started creating my Lovely Lollipops just for my own scrapbooking pages in about February/March of this year. I saw that Scrapbooking Top 50 had a Craft Market that gives the opportunity to sell your own handmade embellishments, so thought I would make a few packets up and see how it goes! It went really well, so I thought I would make a few more packs up and try my hand selling them on my own personal blog too - my first sale was in April. That went really well too! I've had a sale a month, plus have been a regular at the Craft Market at SBT50 too. I've also set up a Facebook Shop where I have them available as well. I have LOTS of giveaways so to keep updated on those & upcoming sales - make sure you LIKE my Charms Creations Facebook Page & check out my blog Charms Creations! Each and every embellishment that I have created has been handcut {making them ALL totally unique} and can include a mixture of felt, fabric, lace, hessian, doiley & any other interesting piece of material I can find. They are finished off with a button and cross-stitches that are also as unique to the embellishment! I have started making different styles and sizes of Lovely Lollipops, Luscious Lollipops & Page Runners. Something NEW are my Suns and Clouds & also Heavenly Hearts too! I have also dabbled in a bit of clay stamping too. So, if you are looking for something totally unique and one of a kind please pop on over and check them out! I am soooo excited about sponsoring this month - and look forward to seeing what you all create! Have fun & Good Luck on winning the fab prizes up for grabs - including mine of course... heheh!

So onto the January challenge...
