#429 Water/Beach


Happy Summer everyone!  We are happy to bring you this week's challenge!  Let's see all those BEACH OR WATER projects.... could be a trip to a beach, an ocean cruise, maybe its a beachy card...whatever you create we want to see it!

Look at what the DT has for you!


For a closer look at each card, check out my blog.

My way of helping him cool off.
I also sprayed him w/ the hose, which is not something he would let
me do if he wasn't otherwise occupied w/ food.

6x8 Traditional Paper Layout

I have used a topper from Making Cards magazine to make my card.  It reminds me of a village in Cornwall and childhood holidays spent with my grandparents.

#428 Inspired by Real Life


So today's challenge is a bit of a challenge!  Our theme is INSPIRED BY REAL LIFE.    We want you create a project that is inspired by something in your life...maybe a person, a place, a thing, an event, a hobby ...something that's important to your life!

Here's what the DT has created to get you started!

I was inspired by my daughter's current "real life" situation as an intern in Washington DC.  She is living her best life in this picture, and I wanted to capture it for this project.

I am inspired to try to capture as many LOVE signs 
as we possibly can with our Granddaughters.
Let the adventures begin 

I was inspired by when we built out house.Much of it was done by my husband and his boss so we could save money.This layout shows them working.

#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!
