A Challenge for you!!

As I was blurfing today while the kids sat quietly doing their schoolwork (yeah, right) I came across this blog. She has some really great sketches for scrapbook pages and cards. I'm going to see if I can fit in some time to do some of the sketches, since I just happen to have tons of pictures just waiting to be done. My challenge to you is to do a scrapbook page (or 2 or 3...) or card using a sketch off her blog. It would also be more of a challenge to use this color inspiration from kwernerdesign.

I haven't participated in any of her color challenges yet, but I think I need to so I can get some new stuff going on. Send me a link with your project! It will be fun! Or you can bring it to our next stampin night. If you don't have these exact colors, use something similar. The idea here is to be inspired. I think this challenge will help me think outside my comfort zone, as alot of my pages tend to be similar. Let's see what we can come up with!!

Now I'll leave you with some cards that were for various classes and workshops. This first card uses Cutie Pie DSP and Bashful Blue CS with various circle punches. Stamp set is Define Your Life.

The second card uses Fall Flowers DSP (retired) with Really Rust and Old Olive CS. The stamp set is from Sale a Bration, I can't think of the name of it off hand. Buttons are from Earth Elements tied with twine.

I really like this card. I think it's one of my all-time favorites. I don't remember where I got the inspiration, it was kind of an altered case. As you can tell, I really like my Bugs and Kisses stamp set. It's kind of like my go to set when I don't know what to do. If you like it as much as I do, you could always go to my Stampin' Up! Website and order it right now! It's item number 106700. Orders are shipped directly to you! So anyway, this card uses Bugs and Kisses, Basic Black, Real Red and Whisper White CS and Black Gingham ribbon with various circl punches. You just gotta love those punches!

Well, that's all for now. See you later and happy stampin'!!

Love all three of these, but my favorite is the middle one. Glad you had fun at the farmers market.Please go back and try agani. The more times you set up, the more relaxed you'll feel and it's fun to get to know the people as the come and go.

I love the circles on your top card. What a great way to add an element without ribbon!

Those are all so pretty! I especially love the center one with the rust buttons--very pretty and a great accent to the card! (the buttons)

I never know what to do with them. So I ignore them.....LOL
