Well you are probably wondering what happened with the July Challenge seen it is nearly halfway through July - well here it is! Sorry it's late! You have until Midnight the 7th of August to upload your take to Mr Linky in the sidebar.
The big Craft show - CHA is about to happen in the States so we will be seeing and selling new Scrapbooking releases next month - very exciting (not so much for the credit card!). I am sure most of you like me have a pile of older papers that you have not used so my challenge to you is to use up some older papers and embellishments (not any released this year). You can make a layout, card or off the page project. New Scrappers you can join in too just use your oldest papers - there are still a lot around that are not "new". You can create more then one project to go in the draw for the RAK - the more you create the better your chance!
For my sample I have some not so old Bo Bunny papers from July CHA 2010 - a release called midnight frost. They are great for those wintery photos even with no snow. I have also used two of my new Cricut cartridges as my Cricut has been gathering dust. I have used Paper Lace 2 for the background lace and Flower Shoppe for the paper flowers. These are both amazing cartridges. On my Prima flower I have used a Snow Pen (you need a heat gun to puff the snow) to make it look more wintery and the little branches are using this punch. I have dabbed picket fence crackle paint on the photos and the paper lace.
So go on and create so you can make some space for the new releases COMING SOON!
