September 2018 - Planes, Trains & Automobiles

Welcome everyone to our September Challenge 
Our theme this month is Planes, Trains and Automobiles chosen by the lovely Miriam

Welcome to September - which means it's a new challenge on the Challenge site.  It was my turn to choose a topic, so I went for Planes, Trains & Automobiles - a topic that often scares a few crafters and pushes them out of their comfort zone - always good to do that!

Here is my project to launch the challenge

Pop over to my blog to see how I created this card.  I hope that I inspired you to join in with the challenge this month - don't forget to share your creations with us.

Happy crafting!
The holidays are sadly over but, if you still want to be transported far away,
I have just the thing for you...

You can check in anytime on my blog, I am pleased to announce that all our
services are running on time...

Hello dears, 
I hope, you are still having a great summer, may be you made some trips or even travels during your holidays. I made a Travel Notebook for my big journey.

If you want to know more, please hop to my blog, you are welcome!

Hello everyone, welcome to the new challenge today. Autumn really is just around the corner now. I dug out the very few Tim Holtz automobile stamps I own and a one of his tiny vintage plane stamps to create my first inspiration card today. I went for a very vintage feel with a classic distress inked and stencilled  background.

A step by step is over on my blog here...why don't you drive pop on over where a warm welcome awaits. Let's hope we get an Indian summer with some more warm sunshine before we need to dig out the woolies.
Bye for now,

Hello everyone, 
for today's new challenge I have made a postcard. I have used an old Tim Holtz stamp set and 'normal' Distress Inks. I had so much fun! Anyway, we hope you'll join us this month ! 

I have also filmed the process:

I'll be back soon with more inspiration ! 


Hello there! I've gone with the flying option for this challenge! I wonder what you'll choose? Have fun! Rachel xx

Since it's already September, for my plane and automobile I wanted to creat an autumn scene.
If you like my card, please visit my blog where you can find the supply list.
Thank you!!!

I have to admit that this great theme challenged me a bit!! Then I remembered this awesome sentiment stamp from IndigoBlu...

Please pop over to my blog to check out the walk through once you finish looking at the DT projects here!

Oooh September already, please bring back the Summer! What a fun challenge Miriam has chosen, here's what I've made.

Neil actually gave me his old map to make this, but only after he'd stolen my brand spanking new one! These are my automobiles, planes and trains come later in the month.
For more photographs please pop on over to my blog.
Have a lovely September, and thanks very much for looking x
