#448 Use a Touch of Gold

 Hey There Friends!

I'm here to talk about our new challenge at Use Your Stuff for the next two weeks....it's one I don't think we've done before which is exciting!  What is it??? A TOUCH OF GOLD!



We want you to incorporate just a bit of gold in your projects...maybe some glitter or glitter paper, what about some foil or gold paint?  Perhaps you have some gold thickers or brads laying around.  Pop that gold on your project and show us!

Check out the DT members with the Golden Touch!

#447 Inspired by Cinema



 Hey Everyone!  I'm late getting this post up and ready for you.  I had Covid over the last couple of weeks so I'm just starting to get into the groove again.  We are a bit behind the ball so some inspiration from the DT will be uploaded a bit later on, but our challenge this week is to be inspired by the cinema!   It could be a favorite movie, soundtrack, a role that a favorite actor played.  Maybe it was a movie night with you and the family....Whatever it is, incorporate it into your project and then show us!

Deanne

*inspired by my favorite movie The Lion King

Haven

Inspired by “Into the Wild”


Stephanie:

My daughter dressed up as a groupie for the band "Loded Diper" from the movie "Diary of a Wimpy Kid this past Halloween.  



  

More DT inspiration will be coming soon!

# 444 A Double Trouble Collaboration

 We are happy to partner once again with Double Trouble Challenges for this new challenge.  All the details are below so make sure that you enter their challenge when you enter ours!  They have a lovely sponsor each challenge so you don't want to miss out on your chance to win.


So the UYS challenge this week is White + One other color!  It's a bit challenging right???  A little out of your comfort zone!  Feel free to use neutrals like black, kraft, cream, but try to have just the white and one other color (varying shades is ok!).  We can't wait to see what you do with this.

Just a reminder, the Double Trouble challenge goes until April 3rd but ours ends on April 2nd!


Now here are the details for the Double Trouble challenge that will go well with ours!


You can link up to their blog here and find out all the details for this challenge that we are sharing and to enter into their challenge as well!  

For their challenge, they are looking for clean and simple cards
and for an additional option only one color!




Let's see what the Design Team has come up with for you!

Haven-  White and Red with a little black because it Chess



Doreen
White w/ Green
Perfect to document my green manicure and my desire for green beer...
Though I had to make due w/ regular colored beer that day, bummer! ::wink::
6x8 Digital/Traditional Hybrid layout




White with pink



I did black and white photos with white and blue on my layout...

Amanda

I went with pink and white for mine!
