June 2017 - Hearts

Welcome everyone to our June Challenge.
Our theme this month is "Hearts", chosen by the lovely Hazel

Hazel here, very happy to be launching the new challenge entitled Hearts! Here is my recycled bag photographed amongst the Wisteria! Happy June everyone. Please visit my blog for more details

I loved the theme this month - there are so many ways to use hearts and I know your creativity will soar with this month's challenge! For my submission I decorated an MDF plaque and embossed a heart shaped Art Part. The gold highlights make the project 'pop'! Gabrielle x

I made a gruny/Vintagey tag for my first Hearty make. After Valentine's Day garish reds, I fancied muted colours and spent a long time establishing the background for my hearts. Come and see how I did it on my blog.

Wow June already, time for  sunshine and Summer weddings. That means Anniversary cards the following years, which is what I've made for our first hearts challenge.
Being born without a romantic bone in my body it was Paper Artsy stamps and Dylusion papers to the rescue. There are more pictures of my struggle here at Sue The Iron xx

Hello everyone, 

The lovely Hazel has chosen the theme of 'Hearts' for June's challenge. I have decorated this MDF Monolith for the occasion ! I have also filmed the process and if you are interested to see how I made this you can pop over to my blog HERE
or go directly :


Thanks for stopping by today ! I'll be back later in the month with more inspiration.

Hello everybody, it's my first project for our June challenge: Hearts.
I wanted to make a card using the techniques I have learned from Tim Holtz during the "12 tags of..." challenges. I hope you like it! More details on my blog. Thanks for visiting!

My daughter recently got engaged and we don't know when she and her partner will get married but when I came across this lovely vintage photo I created a journal page to celebrate the occasion. The details of how this came together can be found over on Bumblebees and Butterflies if you care to pop over.

Happy June everyone, summer really is just around the corner now. For the lovely Hearts theme this month I chose to make 2 very summery cards. This is the first one; I used distress oxides and carried the theme right through to adding a heart brad. I thought the colours reminded me of  ice cream! If you would like to see how I made this I have a step by step over on my blog here where a warm (and heartfelt 😊) welcome awaits. Let's hope it's a really flaming June. 

Bye for now,

Hello there! Well our theme this month is hearts and I had lots of fun making this card. If you would like the details please hop over to my blog. Hugs rachel x
Fabulous topic again this month....and perfect for lots of wedding anniversaries that are coming up over the summer months.  Pop over to my blog to see how I made this card.

Hello everyone, what a fabulous theme for this month;  hearts, a favourite any time of year! 
I choose do a journal page with lots of Stencilling, and as I'm still addicted 
to those Oxides, I couldn't resist adding a little here and there.
As always the details are over on my blog.
