#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.

6x8 Traditional Paper Layout
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!

#422: Stencils on a Project



I used a small box stencil along with gray spray ink to create my own background paper to accent this picture of my daughter having a glass of juice with a magnolia garnish poolside.


I used a Memory Box tree stencil with Distress Inks to create a winter scene.  I added a snow drift at the bottom of the trees using a die and then a deer using a die from Stampin' Up.


I finally got to use this Vicki Boutin stencil that I received in a SCT sampler years ago.  I thought the butterflies would be perfect for some rainbow stenciling for a Mother's Day card for my mom.


I've used a kaiser brickwall stencil on this card with a dark green mist. 

It looks brown on the kraft cardstock.
