A new DT and new challenges in July

July brought with it the new Design Team at Home and Srapped so I get to take a rest for a while and just join in the fun instead of creating the challenges.

Joy's challenge was to create a layout using the colours PINK, GREEN and WHITE.  We could use neutral -black as well. I teamed this with a challenge for the Scrappers over at the Simple Savings forum where they put up a sketch to play with:
 
Bec challenged us to to tackle a Christmas layout.
The layout and colours could be completely our choice.
However it must have one of the following…

Stars
Baubles
Snowflakes

As a side line, if we had any scraps and were feeling in the mood then we could make a few Twinchies. Great for using on Christmas cards or future layouts.
 
 Here are my twinchies....... 
 And here is my use of one of them on a Christmas card that I made for the "In & Out" Embroidery class that I took at My Creative Classroom. This was a four day, self timed class run by Catherine Scanlon. This was my take on her technique of stitching a sentiment stamp.
 
AmyB gave us a a fairly open challenge, which was to scrap an element of our LO on a diagonal through the page. This is quite open to our own interpretation, we could do masking, or perhaps prefer to lay our photos, patterned paper or embellishments out that way. I was inspired by a layout I saw recently on Gayle Prices blog - Bliss and Gesso, I loved the way she had used the Cherry Blossom template from Crafter's workshop so wanted to duplicate the idea. Here is what I came up with. What I thought would take forever actually came together really quickly and I love it.

 
Thanks for dropping by and Happy craftin'...........
