UYS #467 Woodgrain / Double Trouble Collaboration

 Hey everyone!  We are really excited to be partnering with Double Trouble Challenges for this week's challenge.

Our portion of the collaboration is to use wood or woodgrain on your project.  This could be a wood piece, the paper you choose, some embossing etc.  Add a die cut or punch and you've got everything you need to play along with the Double Trouble challenge too!

 Once you add your project to our challenge, head on over to their blog and play along with theirs as well.  

Check it out!





The design team has some great projects to get you started !

Amanda







My "wood grain" choice is the blue and white card anchoring my title and die cuts
I like to keep track of some of my favorite shows of the year and this is my current compilation.
I used two Elle's Studio Pocket Cards & three Elle's Studio die cuts along w/ three stickers and a Kelly Purkey stamp to embellishment my simple 6x8 pocket page








 Have fun with the challenge! We can't wait to see what you create!

Our new challenge is here for you! 

Food and/or Drink

Lots you can do with this one, so we can't wait to see what you have to show us!

Let's see what the Design Team has for you this challenge!

Deanne



Food is almost always included in my Project Life Layouts
During Week 25 I tried the new flavor of Lenny and Larry's Protein Cookie: 
Strawberry Shortcake


I tried out the new Starbucks beverage
Their first ever Vegan Fall Drink -
Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato
12x12 Traditional Layout



I have been digging through some of the photos my mom has sent my way and found this gem of a photo that's perfect for the challenge.  I think it's the summer of 1980 but not sure other than that we were in Michigan and features my brother and I enjoying sodas together.



Stephanie:
One of my family's favorite Fall festivals in our area is the annual Greek Festival held the second week of September.  Featured in this project is my daughter and husband dining away on all sorts of Greek goodies!

#452 Mood Board

 It's time for some summer inspiration.  Select an image, color, pattern, or whatever from this bright mood board to guide your creative process then share it here with us at Use Your Stuff.  Right off the bat, I see circles and watercoloring.  Flowers and sunshine. Fruit and stripes.  Water and palm trees....pinks and turquoise, orange and yellow.  What do you see!




I was inspired by all the different colors and the stripes.
