Jellypark Papercraft Challenge - 'Little Bunny Foo Foo'

Before we get down to business, a word about our Jennifer. Jennifer usually runs this challenge blog and our rather fab Jellypark DT and bloomin' brilliantly she does it too. Well as many of you will know, Jennifer has recently been diagnosed with cancer and she is right in the middle of a gruelling set of chemo treatments. All of us at Jellypark send a HUGE hug to her and if you have a moment please pop over to her blog and leave a message - it would be lovely if we could fill it up with all your good wishes to show her how much we are all missing her at the moment xx

Right, challenge time! We are still eating our Easter chocolate here so thought we would carry on celebrating Spring with a bunny theme for you - just create a papercraft project that includes a bunny/rabbit, simple! If you are unsure of the rules just have a look down the right hand column, don't forget we have quite a few bunny digital stamps in the Jellypark shop which you could use :o)

Need some inspiration? Well our Jellypark DT have got some BEAUTIFUL design ideas here for you...

We have two guest designers for this challenge - a very warm Jellypark welcome to


Ok, now it's your turn to get crafting and share with us your bunny projects - can't wait to see them all!!

Jellypark digital stamp release - New Baby Tags

 Spring has sprung! Well is has here in England - real April weather sunny one minute and showers the next, we have buds on the trees and we can shake off winter and look forward to new beginnings. Because I took my boys off for a little break in the school holidays and our Jennifer has been feeling wiped out by her rotten old chemo treatment we didn't have a release or a challenge last time 
- did you miss us?!! 

 We have just one stamp being released this week - that's me being rather disorganised and still in holiday mode I am afraid. It fits in with Spring and the feeling of new beginnings as it's a cute baby one, perfect for welcoming new little people into our lives!

You don't need me to tell you that the Jellypark Design Team worked their magic as usual once they got their hands on this stamp - just take a look...

Right folks, now it's your turn, would love to see what you all make with this one so send us your photos!

 Have fun crafting,

Gaynor Greaves

I am 44 years old, married with one grown up Daughter and 2 mad lurchers, I live in Sheffield in the UK. I work part time on the Intensive care unit at my local hospital which i enjoy immensely. I have been crafting since I was little but I mainly knitted and did cross stitch when I got older, I got into making cards in 2006 and I have been addicted ever since. I love stamping and Digi stamps have become a favourite because of their flexibility. I love to make all types of cards and nothing fazes me, you don't learn anything if you don't make any mistakes.

Kenzie Pearce

I have 2 children and a dog who are my world, work part time, and have a great life and living it as best we can. I'm a fairly new crafter hoping to learn from some great crafters, have been making scrapbooks a while.

Zoe Stupples

I'm a craft loving mummy to my lil dude Ryan 5 and my gorgeous lil princess Abigail who is 3 and my 7 month old baby. When I am not running around after them you will find me in my little corner with my beloved stamps and copics!!

Sue Berker - April 6 Guest Designer

My name is Sue Berker. I am 68 years old and have been married to the most awesome guy ever for ten years. Together we have five kids and 3 grandkids. We do a bit of traveling around the United States but our best trips have included our family visits. I have been an avid papercrafter for about eight years. It all began with being introduced to the stamping world by a Stampin'Up! demonstrator. During those eight years I became a Stampin'Up! demonstrator for four years and then was blessed to be on two Design Teams. I lean more towards the CAS style of stamping. I also enjoy scrapbooking but don't seem to find the time anymore for it.I want to thank Jellypark for the pleasure of being a guest designer.

Jacqy Weber - April 20 Guest Designer

I am married to my best friend and childhood sweetheart, Gary, for 44 years. Our grown kids are Donna and Gary. We are very lucky to have a son-in-law, Greg, who we love very much. then , of course, we have 3 absolutely wonderful, talented and loveable grandkids, Matt, Mandi and Hannah. They are 3 of the best blessings we could have ever been given. As you can see, my family is the center of my universe. They complete me in so many ways.

When I'm not hanging out with my awesome family I am very involved in our Church. Love almost all crafts. Mysteries(especially cozy mysteries) are my favorite books to read. I knit for charity. Always loved scrapbooking which I am now hooked on. Since I received my cricut for Mother's Day you can usually find me in my craftroom creating with my cricut.

Lisa West - May Guest Designer

I'm married and I'm a stay at home mum to a wonderful 2 year old little boy. I love my family and friends and all the usual things but my crafting is my relaxation, hobby and addiction all rolled into one. I was lucky enough to be a runner up in two UK craft magazines Yearly competitons in 2011, which has really boosted my own confidence in my crafting abilities.

Suzi McKenzie - June Guest Designer

I'm Suzi McKenzie AKA Mrs Weyremaster, I live in Aberdeen, Scotland with my adorable hubby Stewart and our 2 cats. I've been colouring images since i could hold a crayon, and it's one of my favourite things to do. I love papercrafting as it gives me the opportunity to be creative, and share my interests with others. I started card making when i was preparing for my wedding, and could not find stationary i liked. I've been card making ever since, and discovered craft blogs and forums soon after, and have been lucky enough to make lots of crafty friends all over the world. My style is fairly simple, a little weird and wacky, and i love to use strong colours.

Please give everyone a happy Jellypark welcome! We are so excited to have each one of them here with us! :)
