We're almost back......

Hello there - have you missed us?

We've been working so hard on the new site and it's VERY NEARLY READY!   We just have a few things to run overnight to make sure all the product is populated correctly and then, fingers crossed, we'll be OPEN!

In the meantime, we thought we should kick off this month's challenge, and as before, you have the chance to win £15 if you play along.   This month we're doing a colour challenge and I must have had food on the brain when I picked all these images as they all have a food or drink theme.  All you have to do is make a project on ANY theme, using AT LEAST 3 colours from ONE of the 3 colour palettes below.

You must at least one product sold in Seven Hills Crafts to be eligible for the £15 prize

As usual, the Design Team will be playing along each week to kick start your inspiration and we will run the challenge for 3 weeks, closing a bit later than normal this month as we're starting late so we will close the challenge at 10pm on Friday 29th January.

Using Wplus9 Star Dies, MFT Accent It Celebrate Dies (inspired by Laura Bassen)

Using Lil'inkers So Prickly and Lawn Fawns Into the Woods

Using Altenew Beautiful Day and Hero Arts Acts Of Kindness.

Link up to our CHALLENGE PAGE when you've done your project.

  3. Great inspiration , I am looking forward to playing along .

  4. Great to see you will be opening soon

  5. YES YES I missed you a lot. Monday is a work day. But I will sneak a peak at my lunch break. =0)

  6. Ahhhhh good to see that your shop is 'almost' open again Tara.
    Good luck with the last things to do ;o)

  7. I didn't receive this blogpost via my email and had to access it via the link on the post on the seven hills facebook page. I am already subscribed to the mtds blog and understand it should have automatically changed to seven hills but it does not appear to have worked as I didn't receive anything. I tried to subscribe again but it says I am already subscribed to the blog....not sure what to do now! Lost without my blog updates from you and how will I know when the shop opens unless I look on facebook all the time! :-(

    1. Hi Susie

      This is a new blog so nothing from Make the Day Special is linked to it. You will need to sign up to follow this one. You may have input your email into the "join our mailing list" box (that is where you would already be registered so will get the message saying you are already subscribed), rather than the "follow by email" box which is a little further down the right hand bar. Hope that helps. Tara

    2. Thank you Tara - all is well now and I have signed up to Seven Hills blog. I must have been having a senior moment lol!! Much obliged for your help! :-) :-)


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment - we hope the blog inspires your creativity.
