Anything Goes Double: Wrap-it-up/New

Hello Everyone!
Rene and Cindy here to challenge you!
We are doing a double challenge - 2 themes, 2 weeks to enter, 2 hostesses.
Challenge 1 - Wrap-it-up
Hostess - Rene
Bugaboo is sponsoring our challenge and the winner will receive 7 fun images!
One week to go before Christmas is here!
There are always little last minute things to do, gifts to wrap.
It's also a time of finishing off the year, of wrapping up, ready for the next step.
That is what we want to see: your interpretation of  'wrap-it-up'. It can be your gifts all beautifully wrapped, a gift tag, a lovely layout that you wanted to finish before Christmas. Remember to mention that you are joining this challenge for a chance to win the price/get in the spotlight.
Our fabulous Design Team has been busy creating fabulous projects using images from the sponsor:
Maureen Using Bugaboo Present Bear
 Doris using Rudolph Tag
Julia using Knobby Knees Christmas Wagon


 And now for Challenge 2 - It's All New
Hostess and Sponsor- Cindy Leek
In Challenge 1 we're wrapping up the old year, so in Challenge 2,
we're celebrating what's new!
Show us a project that celebrates something new...the New Year,
a new baby, a new house, a new job or even a new stamp set!
The winner of Challenge 2 will receive a
CTMH Sarita Paper Packet and Current Stamp Set

Here are a few "NEW" projects

Doris - for a new house
Julia - using a new stamp
 Cindy using a new stamp set

 To wrap up our last big challenge of the year, we are thrilled
to have two fantastic Guest Designers join us for our Double Challenge. 
Please say hello to Maria and Helen and be sure to check out their blogs! 
Maria Georgiva

Hello! My name is Maria. I am from Bulgaria. For almost 2 years now I've been scrapbooking and mainly cardmaking. I express my emotions and feeling with paper, embellishments and paints. Inpirations is around us! Thank you so much to the girls for asking me be a
Guest Designer in this lovely blog today!

Helen Nile

I've been a card maker for many years and love stamping - my style is mostly clean and simple. As well as designing for several companies, I also teach regular card making workshops. I work as an activities coordinator for Abbeyfield, a charity that provides residential and sheltered care for the elderly. This means that I spend my working week playing dominoes, doing chair exercises and crosswords and of course crafting! 

Ok, your turn!  You can enter Challenge 1, Challenge 2 or both if you like!  
This double challenge will remain open until December 31, so you've got two weeks to add your projects.  The Crafting by Designs team will take a week off to spend the holiday with their families, but we're getting ready for some great new challenges in 2014.  Hope you'll join us! 
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all from Crafting by Designs!
