July - Things With Wings

Welcome everyone to our July Challenge.
Our theme this month is "Things With Wings", chosen by the lovely Jane

Welcome to July, the month of sunshine and holidays. I am delighted to be the hostess for the new challenge this month and I have chosen a summery theme, "Things with wings". Over on my blog I have several ideas and photos for your inspiration.... some of them  more off the wall..but all have wings. My card today has wings.......paper plane wings 😄 I have a fly by step by step over on my blog post here.
I am really looking forward to visiting you all this month to see your wings too. Have fun and don't forget to fly.
Bye for now,
Jane x

Hello there! I do hope you can join us for our new challenge - I decided to use a Tim Holtz die and make my bees...they're buzzing around my card and you can find out how I made it over on my blog here.

Hello! Can you believe it's July already?! For my first project this month I altered a page in my Creative Dyary - I've put the details on my blog. I love this challenge theme as there are so many possibilities. I adore what my team mates have made as inspiration this month and I can't wait to see what you make too!

Hello everyone, I loved this months theme! So in my journal I created this pretty little thing,
All the details are on my blog. Hope to you there,

Hello all, it´s summer! One of the most beautiful things are the twittering birds in summer. So for the "Things with wings"-challenge I made a little card with a bird. For more details you can hop to my blog.

I love this theme chosen by Jane as it provides so many options for us all both as Design Team members and you, the readers, to enter the challenge. I decided I wanted stay in a vintage mode and chose to create wings for these two lovely girls so they could play at being fairies in the garden. I've added a vintage shabby mixed media background, a few embellishments and altered the shadowbox. So if you'd like to see how this came together I'd love you to pop over to Bumblebees and Butterflies where there are instructions, new techniques and more photos.

Hello everyone, 

For this months 'Things with wings' challenge I have made this AJ page. I filmed the process too so if you want to know how I made this then hop over to my blog HERE or go straight to YouTube :

Hope you enjoy ! I will be back soon with more inspiration ! 

It's 1st July, Summer is here, so we're in my happy place. It doesn't need to be hot, but a little bit of sunshine cheers me up. Quirky birds also cheer me up (slick link eh!) so here they are
Oh to have legs like this! There are lots more pictures over on my blog so I hope to see you there x

This song (Chirpy, chirpy, cheep, cheep...) and I, we were both born in the early seventies. So I was just a little girl when I first heard it. It came to my mind when I was looking for an inspiration for Tim's birds and for our "Things with wings" challenge. If you want to see the tutorial of my canvas boards, please hop on my blog. Thank you!

Butterflies are high on my list of Winged things but I wanted my offering to be more original and out of my usual so...
 here goes the Flamin' [birds].
Please visit my blog to read all the details on how I created this scene-scape!
Keep cool and carry on crafting...

For our new topic this month I have chosen to create a journal page with memories of my recent holiday. I hope that you will join me on my blog.

This month I have been able to combine two of my favourite things - Butterflies and Tim Holtz.  Pop over to my blog to see how I created this card.

This topic can be so versatile.  I hope you join in with the challenge and look forward to seeing what you create.
Happy Crafting!
