Get ready for more fun with our NEW inky paws Challenges!

We have made some exciting new changes to our Inky Paws Challenges! We've moved the challenges to their very own blog!  You can find the NEW inky paws challenge blog here!
Starting on January 16th we will be hosting challenges on our new blog and beginning in February challenges will be consistently twice a month, with a new challenge beginning on the first and third Monday of each month!

To help us out with this fun new format we've chosen these two awesome ladies as Inky Paws Challenge Leads! They're going to help inspire us with the challenge themes and make sure the blog is running smoothly! You will remember Jess as a former Design Team Member and we've added Debbie Owens, a long time NND fan and challenge participant! Read more about them below and check out the new blog on January 17th for the first new challenge!!

Jess Crafts

Hello Newton’s Nook fans! My name is Jess Gerstner and I’m so excited to be able to work these awesome stamps and dies! My mom introduced me to crafts at a young age but papercrafting was the one that truly stuck. I’m now an avid stamper and I love to color with a variety of mediums and try out new techniques. My style tends toward clean and cute. I love to create video tutorials and to connect with other crafty people through social media. You can check out my blog Jess Crafts.

Indy's Designs

Hi, my name is Debbie, aka Indy. I live in Utah with my hubby and two fur babies--Catapult and Velcro. I have several passions in life--cats, card making, clay ornaments, coffee, chocolate, and camping! I began card making back in 2010 and reached out to the Internet for inspiration and ideas! In 2013, I discovered Newton's Nook Designs and completely fell in love with Newton and his gang of whimsical friends, so I am thrilled to be part of the Inky Paws Challenge team!

Who's excited to get started!? Check back next Monday, 
January 16th, to play along in our first challenge on the new blog!
