The How to:

To enter this challenge you need to link up your entry  Blog post, or post on Instagram, Facebook or Pinterest (link to the actual project – not the whole page) by using the linkytool below. You have until the end of December 4 to submit your project!  All submissions must have #ccbchallenge somewhere to be considered.

Only 1 entry per person allowed. Are you a previous winner? That does NOT exclude you for winning again – please join in!! We also want to you to include at least 1 item from any of the Canvas Corp Brands (please mention the product so we know).

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



This is how some of our Crew Members created inspired by the challenge:


Cathy Frailey


“With the Autumn and Halloween season in full swing, I came up with a fun little journal spread that incorporates those elements using some yarn fibers! Us ladies sometimes have a hard time deciding what to wear – what’s our personality going to be today? That’s the dilemma facing my journal gal. Decisions, decisions…”

Viktoriya Porechnaya



“I created a card with autumn mood – yellow, brown,orange leaves, turquoise tone on background and charming spider on the web that I made with yarn. Some sparkling accents and drops are great addition for fall! I used Tattered Angels Calendar Mist Kit – Pumpkin Patch for autumn leaves and Dragonfly, Walnut Gold and It’s Brown Glimmer Mists for the background.”

“I have not knit for almost 30 years. But when I saw the subject of this wonderfully inspirational challenge, I got the idea that the jute cord could also knit. I used to stitch with skewers because I wanted glue that sticks on scrapbook page and love how it turned out!”

Lynda Lindley



“I adore rustic decorating items and knew straight away I wanted to make something I could sit out on my table for the fall holiday season. This burlap and yarn pumpkin is the prefect decor project to create using leftover burlap, yarn, and a branch from your yard. Fast and easy to make with a running stitch done along the top edge of a circle cut from burlap using yarn. I then added additional yarn around the stem of the pumpkin and trimmed around the burlap at the top leaving it very messy for a rustic look.”
