Challenge #382: Use Red, Brown, & Gold on a Project

Hi and welcome to this week's challenge, Tina here today with you and I challenge you to a color challenge : Red, Brown and Gold
I created this fun layout using the colors of the challenge

Lots of browns and golds with a hint of red in the leaves of the background paper as well and the photo of the tree. If you like to see more of this layout you can see it over at my blog

For this project, I featured pictures of my cousin at I at our favorite fall festival this past October.

I used brown and gold inks (looks yellow) on the chipboard monkey plus there's red in the alphas.


Just to make sure you also see the golden shimmer ....

Challenge #381 - Use Scraps

Good Morning everyone!  We hope that you all had a fun weekend, for some of us, the clocks went back an hour and we gained that all important hour of sleep!

But, here we are on Monday and we have a new challenge for you!  Hopefully you did some crafting over the weekend, and your craft table has some bits and bobs on it, as our theme this week is to create a project using some scraps from another project!  Your project could be made entirely from scraps or just some elements.....let's see what you've been creating.  Here is the DT to get you started!


Left over scraps from my craft table.

I used up some of my scraps from my last DT project (the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge) for this layout

Scraps on this layout from previous graduation layouts I made :)


I have a big bin of scraps that sits on my table that I pull from frequently. Everything on this layout except the background is from my pile of scraps.

I made a magic slider card completely from scraps.  I used leftover card stock, leftover card for coloring, and a half used sheet of patterned paper.  Only the transparency sheet was new!

After making 2 layouts today I found enough scraps to make this card.

Challenge #380: Fall project with 3 leaves

HI Karrie here, and even though it's very sad summer is ending I am enjoying the beautiful fall views of coloured leaves everywhere in my area. That's the inspiration for this

 "Fall project using at least 3 leaves" challenge!  

So it's up to you if you Use Your Stuff with different media, different leaves, or different colours, as long as you have at least 3 varying.
My grandkids helped make this welcome sign for Thanksgiving, and we put fall items and different leaf stickers on it, and afterwards they carved these pumpkins.

The other team members are inspired also!

I used a variety of leaves on this project of my daughter posing with her best friend and her best friend's dog for Homecoming pictures on a gorgeous fall day.

I used 3 wooden maple leaves on this layout about my travels.

I used maple leaf paper clips on my layout


I created an ATC using 3 diffrent leaves from Stampin' UP:

How about you, inspired? 

Please add your project with 3 different leaves to the inlinkz

Challenge #379 - Tic Tac Toe

Hello all, Gail here.  I hope you are enjoying this fall season.

Today we have for you a TIC TAC TOE challenge.  You can choose any line down, across or diagonally and use those items/colours on your project.
I chose the far right column - blue, buttons, ribbon or twine.

We hope you can play along with us this week!

                                                          (blue, buttons and ribbon)

I went down the middle column for mine - arrows, red and rhinestones.

I actually went right down the middle as well, using the arrow, red and rhinestones/bling.

Stamp(s), the color red, and the color blue
