Die Challenge... !!

The latest card challenge has been set over at the SCRAPOLOGY BLOG and features the work of Sue Wilson.  We would like you to create a card with die cuts as the focal point or use them in an unusual way. Sue has donated an amazing prize for the winner and all the details and super Design team inspiration can be found on the BLOG.
You have till 15th sept to submit a card......

As I only have a few basic sets of dies my card was created very simply.  I used a heart to make the flower and circles to make the rings.

I hope you join in and send us a card or two !  It's great to see how everyone interprets the challenge in their own way :)

What is the fascination with cardboard boxes, especially with children or in this case big hairy dogs?

I thought this photo would suit the layout for the newest challenge over at Scrapology.........

"E for Exposed" and using a layout by Ingvild  Bolme as a starting point.

All the patterned paper, including the eyeboggling black and white paper comes from the Happy Days collection kit from Echo park.

Rather than tearing the aperture for the photo, as in the original layout (see below) I just randomly cut into the paper and folded the pieces back.

Pop over to the Scrapolgy blog to see the details of the challenge, all the amazing design Team layouts and details of how to enter your project. As always we have a super prize for the winning layout.

This is the original layout  by Ingvild Bolme and our sketch....

Dreams and Delights....

That's the theme for the latest card challenge over at the SCRAPOLOGY BLOG.....which is being sponsored by Tracy Dutton of Lavinia Stamps.

Now I'm not a great stamper as you may have noticed , however I was lucky to see a set of very pretty Lavinia stamps free on the cover of Papercraft essentials Magazine !

So armed with a silver ink pad, ribbon , black glitter paper and some little letter stamps, I made this....

If you'd like to see how the rest of the Design team got on with their challenge, all the details for entering your project and prize details pop over to the BLOG x

                                                           Good luck

P for Punch outs......

This is the new challenge set by the Scrapology team for this month. 

The layout to scraplift is by Stacey Cohen and the sketch from the LO, Design Team inspiration and ALL the details of how to enter your project can be found right HERE

My layout, uses mostly cardstock and a tiny bit of blue floral patterned paper from the Echo Park - for the record 2 - collection. The cute little clothes peg stickers were also in the collection. I used my beloved glitter A/C thickers and raided my stash for the rest.

I loved this challenge, but as you can see I was limited with space for the actual punchouts! Given the size of my layout and photo :)

This was the sketch

This is a really fun challenge, and it will be lovely to see just how many different  shaped punches will be used on your projects.

Look forward to seeing you over at Srapology. The current challenge runs till 5th Aug.and as always there's a great prize for the winning layout.
