So finally after a few months, I have decided to go plain and simple with my Project Life 2016. I found the process was not overly enjoyable, and the pages were taking far too long to complete. Here is my week 1 and Week 2. Hopefully things will go a little bit smoother now.
Over at Stampin Royalty this week, we have a Butterfly challenge for you to play along with. It's very simple. Using whichever products you like, create a project using a butterfly, then enter you card on the Stamping Royalty site. Very simple. Go ahead and try.
Here is my first ever Month in Review page. I have used the template from Two Tiny Turtles and the Digital kit from Digital Scrapbook Ingredients all from Sweet Shoppe Designs. (Including a few little bits from various kits I already had). I love the ease of Digital Project Life. I think I changed my mind at least 10 times on this one.
This week over at stamping royalty we have a picture inspiration for you to play with. I love the mint and gold together. I created another Project Life page using the colours in the inspiring picture below. Go check out the site and see what the others have come up with using the same picture.
Over at Stampin Royalty this week, we have a colour challenge for you to play along with. Loving the colours, and they seemed to fit perfectly with the layout I was working on this week. If you click on the link above, you will find some amazing cards made by the design team.
This week over at Stampin Royalty we have a picture to inspire you creativity. I did, however struggle with this one, so I went with the colours. It looked a little plain, so I added a star under the penguin.
Over at Stampin Royalty there is a colour challenge happening. All you need to do, is use the colours in the picture above, (or close to) and create something. Simples. Here is the card I have made and the supplies I used.
Over at Stampin Royalty this week, we have a picture to inspire you. Here is my take on what inspired me. Well, I stuck with the colours and the vase of flowers on the night stand. Head on over to stamping royalty and see what the very talented design team have come up with.
This week at Stampin Royalty, the theme was anything but a card. I purchased this kit from Stampin Up a little while ago, so I thought it would be perfect for this challenge. Seriously, I had a ball doing this project. It was so much fun to build all the elements and stick them onto the wire frame. Oh, I must confess. I found the Pom Poms extremely not my thing, so I changed to the punched flowers.
Yeah me! I have finally completed week 1 of Project Life for 2015.
Hopefully there will be more to come. This week was all about getting my craft room up and running in a practical and stream lined way. I decided (as I do) to move the entire room into our spare room. Lots of work to move everything and set it all up again. I'm wondering how long it will last.
I made this card, an Easel, card, for the tiddlywinks challenge. It has been so long since I have made ANY shaped card, it was great to get one finished. I have used the image from Tiddlyinks called Annabelle Puppy Love. The papers are Red, Stampin Up and Pattern Paper from a pad from Echo Park called Fine and Dandy. I'm off now, to post this on Tiddlyinks blog.
I was playing with this stamp set (Butterfly Basics) the other day, and was having trouble trying to get the layout right. Well, that was until I found the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches. Total life saver, as far as I am concerned. Everything just fell into place. Thank you.
Over at Stampin Royalty this week, there is a bit of a special challenge. It's kind of like a second chance at fixing a card you were not all that happy with at the time. Well, I can certainly say, that this card of mine below, is one that I am not too happy with. So here is is....
Firstly, here is the original challenge.
Here is the card I created for the challenge. (It was good at the time) lol. I think the more I look at it, the worse it is becoming....
And, here is my new card. I had to change the colours slightly, as Not quite Navy has been discontinued. So, I used Night of Navy instead. I just love this stamp set with the cats. They are so cute.
So, if you have a card you would like to re do. Pop over to Stampin Royalty and let us all have a look. There are some great cards over there. Full of inspiration.
Well it seems that my coffee card is a winner, over at pals paper arts. Thank you all so very much.
It was an amazing sketch, and loads of fun. I'm sure I will be using this sketch for many cards to come. See you next week, hopefully.
Well, here is a blast from the past. I was sorting out my older wooden stamps the other day, and I came across this little fellow. Although he is retired now, he is still pretty amazing. I'm quite sure that this card will be entered into the Freshly made sketches challenge this week, although I am cutting it a bit fine. Oh, yes. I rotated the sketch so my image would fit in properly.
This card would be perfect for an apprentice chef or someone who really loves cooking.
I finally had some time to play in my craft room this week. I found this sketch challenge over at http://www.palspaperarts.com so I thought I would play along. I can assure you, it has been a while since I made a card for a challenge.
