Papercrafters' Year in Review Hop


Today I'm very excited to be joining the Papercrafters' Year in Review 2023 Hop.

It's been organised by the wonderful Ellie and it's been a great opportunity to look back on what I've made during the year.

I decided to pick a favourite from each month of the year so here are my choices with links back to the original blog post:


My first card for the Beautiful Blossoms Challenge using 'Snowdrop Corners' from Clearly Besotted - my blog post is here.


This card was for the Sparkles Challenge using the 'Sailor Teddy' digi stamp and digi paper - my blog post is here.


This was for the SheepSki Designs Facebook Challenge using Andrea's beautiful 'Cornflowers' digi stamp - my blog post is here.


This one for the Critter Crazy Challenge using one of the 'Aussie Animals' set from Kate Hadfield Designs - my blog post is here.


I made this for the I Love Promarkers Challenge using 'Cake and Candles' from Dr Digi's House of Stamps - my blog post here.


This was made for the Ally's Angels Challenge using the 'Nature's Glory' patterned paper pack from Anne Constantly-Carding - my blog post is here.


So for July it had to be Christmas in July!  This was for the Aud Sentiments Challenge using 'Silly Santa' from Last Minute Manda - my blog post is here.


I made this for Jan's Digi Stamps Challenge using 'Dog Days of Summer' - my blog post is here.


This was one of my GDT projects for Relatively Thoughtful using the 'Poppy Fields' collection - my blog post is here.


I made this for Conie Fong using 'Christmas Girl Elves' - my blog post is here.


This was for the All Dressed Up Facebook Group Challenge using 'Merry and Bright' - my blog post is here.

And finally a CAS Christmas card using the 'Joyful Nativity' stamp set from Stampin' Up - my blog post is here.

So now I'd love you to share your favourites from 2023 too!  It could be a top 3, top 5, top 10 or one from each month as I've done.
