Challenge 313-Washi Tape

The challenge this week is to use Washi tape on your project.  For this challenge use at least two different pieces of Washi tape on your project.  For my project, I use my enormous Washi stash to decorate my planner spread for the week.  I was able to use three different rolls on this spread, two of which had never been used before.

So, pull out your Washi tape stash and let's see the creative ways that you choose to use Washi tape.  Don't forget to link up your project when you are done.

I have used several strips of washi to balance off the strips of patterned papers I used in the bottom of my 12x12 layout. Check out my blog for a full layout share.

Challenge #312- Found (Upcycle/Recycle)

Hi everyone! Welcome to this week's challenge.  Tammy here as your hostess for this challenge.  My challenge is to upcycle or recycle an aspect of your project.... The design team has some great examples to get you started....Can't wait to see what you come up with.

I found some paint chip samples on my desk and thought they would be great to use with my die cuts.  I cut out the feathers and the HELLO sentiment from the chips and then just added some embossing, twine and Nuovo dots.

For my "found object," I used a piece of pre-wrap my daughter had wound around her head during her soccer game.  Not only did it help hold her hair back during the game, it also worked as a bow for the tags on my project.


I used a Kleenex Box and inked the backside in several colours. After I stamped some images for more texture, I cut them into "Artistic Trading Coins" (Diameter 2.5"). I stamped and heat embossed the flowers and added a little sentiment.

Challenge #311 - For the Moms

It's Amanda here with this week's challenge.
This week in honour of Mother's Day we are celebrating the moms, 
or the mother figures, in our lives!
For me, it is an especially fitting theme as today is my mom's birthday!

For my project I created a layout about my mom and I from when I was young.

This is what the rest of the team came up with!



We can't wait to see your projects!

UYS # 310 - Mood Board

Hello :) Tina here this week with this fun challenge! Mood Board inspiration as below (be inspired by the mood board below to create your project. It could be colors, shapes, items, etc). I jumped on this challenge as soon as I seen the bird photo in the bottom left corner :) There is so many themes that you can create from this mood board.

Here is what I created :) I was inspired by the young bird, by the flowers and by the soft colors. You can see more about this project over at my blog:

Now lets see what the girls created from this fun challenge:

 I've been working on this mini since I saw the ultra-feminine moodboard.
(more pix and pages on blog)

The flowers in the mood board reminded of a pictures I took a few years back of peonies blooming along the parade path during my town's Spring Fling celebration.

I used Simple Stories Romance Collection for this layout about me and my wonderful hubby.


I was inspired by the colors on the board to create this card.

We look forward to seeing your creation from this fun challenge.....
