First up on the agenda....SRM Stickers is hosting a July challenge to create Clean and Simple cards with stickers. I gravitate towards the clean and simple style in my layouts, so I definitely wanted to give the clean and simple cards a go. Unfortunately, I don't currently have any SRM stickers in my stash (must change that ASAP ha ha!!), but I do have some American Crafts remarks stickers that work perfect for cards. The first two are New Baby cards.
Next up? Up the Street is hosting a challenge to scrap a 3 photo summer layout. I am loving using a few wallet sized photos with a larger photo these days. So here is my take on the challenge:
Next up is this week's ScrapTiffany challenge, which was a fun one--use Black and White photos. I love black and white photos, but the truth is I dont use them all that often. Why? Because my kids have THE most gorgeous blue eyes. Seriously everywhere we go people tell us how stunning they are. But I do like to use black and white for MY photos ;) So here is my take:
I used Bella Blvd papers, chipboard and stickers for this one. I love the muted colors on the Kraft cardstock.
Go on over to Scrap Tiffany to check out the other fabulous Black and White photo projects.
Did I already share that I won the Elle's Studio July challenge? Another summer layout using an Elle's Studio journaling card:
My layout was posted on Elle's blog HERE and I was randomly chosen to win more Elle's goodies!!
And, there was a challenge over on the My Little Bit Of Whimsy blog. It was a sketch challenge. You can see the sketch HERE and the participants take on the sketch HERE. Here is mine:
Since there were 4 participants, Stephanie (owner of MLBOW) decided to make us all winners!! So keep an eye on the MLBOW blog because I think there will be a new challenge soon!
AND.....the latest Cards Blog Challenge was to use kites on a card. Here is mine:
Finally, some of my pages and cards were in Chicago for CHA!!! Moxxie had an ice cream social and decorated the tables with their designers projects. Check this out:
Do you see my Little Miss there? So exciting! Moxxie will be sharing more on their blog and next week I will share what I sent. And here's to hoping I can be there myself next time ;)
Thank you so much for making it all the way through this lengthy post. Have a great weekend!!
