#427 Summer Fun


Hey everyone!  Welcome to this week's challenge where it is all about the summer!  Our theme is summer fun!  This can be interpreted however you want...anything that shouts summer to you!  Maybe it's a summery place, a favorite event or just anything that says summer like water, bathing suits ...whatever you want!  This is a great challenge to play along with and we can't wait to see what you all post for us to see!

The DT has some great projects to get you started!

Summer always makes me think of the sea and boats - memories from childhood holidays spent in Cornwall and living by the coast too.

#425 Game Night Highlights

 Hello one and all.  Looks like our game night challenge was not a popular one!  That's quite ok.  We can't hit it out of the park everytime.  We do appreciate those of you that were able to challenge yourself and play along.  Awesome job!  

Alice, this vintage skinny card is amazing!  I love the collage!  You did such a great job on this!

Niki, you did a stunning job on this shaker and that dimension is so fantastic!

Thanks for playing along with this one, and don't forget to pick up your badge from the sidebar!  Hope you play along with our next challenge as well.!

#426: Black & White with a Pop of Color


Hey everyone! Today's challenge is a fun one!  This go round we are looking for black & white with a pop of color.  This is one of my favorite color combos and I hope that you will like it too and we can't wait to see what this inspires you to create!  Here's the DT projects and you can see that this fits in, not just with small canvases like cards or ATC's but also big ones like layouts as well.


For this project, I featured a pic my daughter took of our German Shepherd with an orange filter applied over his sunglasses.  I thought he would be the perfect subject matter for a black and white themed project.


I used a background paper on my card which was mainly black and white but there was a touch of pink in one corner. I used that as my start and added a pink and white ribbon. My other embellishments were black and white.


I have made a spotlight card using some Stampin' Up black and white patterned paper as my base.  I die cut a circle from the paper, coloured in the butterflies on the circle using Promarkers and then put this back on the paper with a black mat underneath.

#425 Game Night


Hey everyone!  Can you believe we are almost done with June and then yay to summer!  So, if any of you were like my family, during this whole pandemic we played a lot of games!  So that's what we are going with for this night!  It could be any project that is game related...and it doesn't have to be board games..maybe it's video games, or golf or badminton...whatever games are important to you!

Check out what the DT has done up for you!

Renee created this fabulous exploding box card deck holder!

Gail has this fun, bright layout!

Helen has a fun card for you!

I don't really have any pictures from family game nights so I opted to use photos from the carnival type games my kids loved to play when they were little...

I used game items on my layout of my niece playing a game

Now it's your turn to create a fun project to record those fun game night memories!

#424 Rainbows on a Project

Hello everyone!  We are happy to celebrate Pride Month for our first challenge of the Month!  It's all about Rainbows!

The DT has created some lovely rainbow themed projects for you to enjoy and be sure to join in using the link below with your own rainbow inspired projects. 


-To honor my dog who recently crossed the "Rainbow Bridge," I decided to create a rainbow project  featuring her sitting in her favorite spot before she passed on.

Throwback to October 2014

I have made a birthday card using some patterned paper that has been in my stash for a long time - it was part of a Stampin' Up paper share.  I love this birthday sentiment and decided to stamp it directly onto the patterned paper for more impact.

 Hello! Welcome back to the new challenge!

We hope you are doing well and creating up a storm!

Here's our new challenge!


I borrowed this off the internet, so a big thank you to the original creator!  Pick any three in a line and incorporate that into your project for this challenge.  To really challenge yourself, try to do a black out and use everything!  Be sure to tell us which line you used!

Have fun and we look forward to seeing what inspires you from this board.!

I went across the top to use flower(s), watercolour and a fun fold card.

I went bottom left to top right to make this cute card for a male who is sick.
Paper piecing , butterfly and fun fold.
That is a tissue in the pocket that I folded.

I chose the right-hand column
- Fun Fold 
- Stripes 
- Any Shade of Purple
Thanks to this challenge I now know how to make paper pinwheels 
I learned from a tutorial on You Tube while I was looking for ideas for "Fun Fold" 
6x8 Traditional Paper layout

I used one of the diagonal lines: flower - butterfly - any shade of purple.  I used Distress Ink to colour and stamp my background and then Stampin' Up Gorgeous Grape ink to colour my stamped butterfly.  The flower is a paper embellishment just below the antennae.

I decided to go down the diagonal and went with flower, butterfly and any shade of purple...


I also went on the diagonal of flower, butterfly and any shade of purple!
