16th June - Bows and Tassels

Morning! Today's challenge is ...

Bows and TasselsI would like to see bows and tassels on your layouts. These could be ribbon, fabric or paper bows, tassels and fringing etc.
You get extra points if you make your own bows and tassels!


I fussy cut bow's  on 1 side of my background, bow's are the key to real love.....


I created 3 yellow bow using some embroidery thread. 



I used a tassel bow that I made with a gold glitter bow layered on top.


Hey everyone. This was such a fun challenge!!! I found a piece of ephemera that had a tassel. I attached another tassel to it that I made from embroidery floss. I tied a bow made from the same floss to a tag and I also made a paper bow from a Sizzix die. 

I hope that's inspired you to use bows and tassels on your layouts, if you do please link them up to the side bar.
Happy Scrapping!

19th May - Coral

Today's challenge is ...

Coral ; the pantone colour of the year is coral so I would love to see a layout full of the colour.

Here are the design team's coral layouts...


For this challenge, I really had to look for something with coral. LOL! I had used up all of my coral papers on another layout I created, but I did find this ONE piece of paper in a new collection I just received. So that's what I used!

Being that coral is one of my MOST favourite colours of all time, this one was easy to work with and I loved every moment putting my layout together!  I chose to add a dash of black and lime green to make the gorgeous coral shade really pop!

I love the color coral but I don't have a lot of it in my supplies. I did find a piece of paper from Simple Stories and one from Fancy Pant's that worked well together for my layout of my daughter and granddaughter.

Hey everyone. When I googled Pantone colour of the year, one site said that light turquoise went well with coral, so I decided to add a bit of that as well.

I hope that's inspired you to dig out all the coral in your stash and give it a go. If you do please link up your layouts to the side bar by 2nd June.

Happy Scrapping!
