January Challenge : Caffeine Hit

Happy New Year  Krafters! 

It's a brand new year, and with that comes a brand new challenge! 
But first ....
We have an exciting addition to our monthly challenges! 

Are you a Cardmaker? 
Each month we will have a special prize from Paper Flourish just for CARD entries  (including tags and atcs)  
And seeing as we allow multiple entries.. that means you can win more than one prize.
Why not create a layout for the challenge and then create a card, tag or atc with the scraps on your craft table and enter that as well?
(Still with the Kraft and the challenge criteria of course)
Thank you to Paper Flourish for their support and generosity.

Now onto the first challenge for 2018

It is the day after New Years Eve and I am sure there 
could be a few of us who could use this... 


The Challenge is to be inspired by coffee,
It doesn't have to be about coffee itself.. you can also  be inspired by 
Amanda Hall's amazing graphic. 

Criteria:Kraft+ Coffee 

We welcome all kinds of craft as entries for our challenges, from traditional layout, cards, digital layouts, art journaling and tags etc. but please remember that it is all about the Kraft!!
Your work MUST be on a KRAFT BACKGROUND (not merely mounted on Kraft) to be eligible.

**Please take the time to read the RULES before submitting your entry**
and upload your entry via the inlinkz section in our side bar.
(Due date: Midnight January 31st) 


This month we start off the DT inspiration with our new and returning DT members.
The entire team has created so much 
caffeine inspired creations I am sure you can smell the coffee through your screens!
