November Challenge “Cozy Moments”

Now is the time of year when you want to snuggle up in the sofa with a cup of tea and a blanket. When you rather stay indoors than go out and get wet. When you hang with friends & family for nice dinner parties and when you light lots of candles to keep the dark away. What is your favourite cozy moment?

We will invite the winner of the challenges to be our Guest Designer in January. This means that they will get a box filled with goodies from all 3 Canvas Corp Brands to play with.

We asked Alina Bartan, Tatiana Klimshina, Yulia Popkova, Emma Tildesley, Viktoriya Porechnaya, Chris Pozzi, Linda Israel & Ava Gavlovski from the Canvas Corp Brands Crew made these samples using Canvas Corp Brands products. If you are not familiar with the Crew, they are a part of one of the most dynamic, creative, positive, inspiring, world-wide design team in the industry. 

Alina Bartan used a Canvas Corp stretched canvas & 7gypsies lace to create this home decor piece. 

Yulia decorated a candle. Candles create coziness to any home.

Viktoriya Porechnaya tell us about her project: I love autumn, but we need warm cozy moments in this cold season. I used kraft papers, woolen yarn and old sweater and wood for my cards. And I think it’s great for such moments -some kindness and a cup of hot cappuccino!

Emma share her ultimate cozy moment in a planner spread: I decided to do a journal page for the theme cozy moments, for me there is nothing more cozy than settling down with my Journal, a good book and a cup of tea. This page shows my ultimate cozy moments.

Linda Israel made a set of journal cards: Cozy Moments make me think of a nice cup of hot tea or coffee and enjoying a book while sitting out in beautiful weather. I thought that making some cozy moment journal cards could help reflect that mood inside a junk journal. Using Canvas Corp Brands paper, Tattered Angels products along with some 7gypsies Architectures I show how to make three Cozy Moment Journal Cards.

Don’t these make you want to curl up with a hot cup of tea and reflect on the day?

Ava share her project together with a short step-by-step tutorial:  Hand made earrings are special when you make the presentation with a hand made delicate gift box. The November mood board stir’s visions of texture mix’d with delicate color tones.

One sheet from the 8×8 Architextures paper pack is all you need to create this unique gift box. Trace box template onto pattern paper, trim and score. Take a wooden stick and roll paper around stick, hot glue, trim and repeat.

Tie ribbon to tag, Make burlap flower, crimp with wire and add a loose ribbon onto back side of burlap flower.Ink burlap flower and adhere a pearl.

I live with my partner and my two children, in a small village the North of Sweden. I work as a Intensive Care Nurse (with Cardiology as speciality).

My “style” is colourful and playful. I often use a lot of papers and embellishments. I try to have the photo in focus, and to reflect the feeling of the photo in the layout. I also makes cards and altered projects. If I would call my style something – well maybe Playful Punk Chic? (if i do a romantic layout, I can´t help giving it a playful twist…)
