Can you even believe that July is almost over? All we can say is that the first crafter who comes up with a way to make time will be sitting pretty. Even though there is so much to do we are not going to let that stop us from giving you more--more cool ideas, more choices on what to make, and more ways to make the most out of your crafting talents.

The big news coming down the pike this week is that July 31st marks the final day to enter our Tote-ally Crafty Bag Challenge! I expect that this weekend had many of you crafting your entries into the home stretch to be ready to post by the deadline. What crafter could possibly resist the opportunity to win a whole Craft Library of excellent Taunton Books, cool needles and a silk needle case from Lantern Moon, a fifty dollar gift certificate from and other craft goodies worth over $250 all in a CraftStylish tote bag? The good news for those crafters late to the challenge is that there are plenty of cool how-to tote bag tutorials right here on Craftstylish that you can use to whip up something wonderul by the 31st. That's the challenge-right?

Here are a few for you to check out:


Remember the deadline for entries is 11:59pm on July 31st. The Four Grand Prize winners will be announced here on Craftsylish on August 8th. Go for it!

  • Paper blogger Jeffery Rudell shares his awesome adventures in paper crafting, including both stunning successes and those try, try agains.

I just joined the community and wow, it's a great design on this site and a lot of fun content. Though I can't find a tutorial of the bracelet above? Maybe I've turned blind from the sun today!?

Craft on!
