May 2021- We Will Always Have Paris

Welcome to our May challenge! This month's theme, chosen by the lovely Craftyfield is:

We will always have Paris!

She wants you to take her to Paris and show her the sights! But don't worry, if you don't have any Paris themed supplies, you can use anything that says "France". Think fashion, wine, lavender fields of Provence, old adverts etc... Tim Holtz has released a few French inspired stamps, tissue tape and embossing folders over the years so dig dip into your stash! Just make sure that the theme is obvious and not a tiny bit of French script or fleur de Lys lurking in a corner of your make.

Craftyfield
I am thrilled to be hosting the challenge this month with a theme dear to my heart. Yes, the beautiful and romantic city of Paris, so close to British shores but, in these times of travel restrictions, so far...  

Do come by my blog to see how I made my scene with the major landmarks of the "City of Lights"

 Debs

 Hello everyone, here's my May challenge inspiration 

All the details are on my blog and there are quite a few details

 Sue

Good morning and welcome to the weekend. For this challenge I thought why use 1 product

There are more photographs here on my blog if you would like to see how these came together. Take care and thanks so much for looking x

Corrie

Hello everyone, 
I have made a postcard for this fabulous new challenge and this is it:


You'll find some step by step photos on my blog HERE

Hello everyone,

If you like it and if you need a tutorial, please hop on my blog.

 Happy May! This month's challenge took me back to our 30th wedding anniversary in 2011 when my Hb and I stayed in Paris to celebrate. On our actual anniversary, 25th July, we were at the top of the Eiffel Tower sipping champagne! I made some artist trading card as a reminder.

If you would like to see how I made them and also some photos from that time in Paris, just catch the Eurostar  😂 I mean pop on over to my blog here.
Bye for now,

 This month's challenge made me long for safer times and travel.  Here is my first project for the challenge:

For our current challenge, I chose an owl, and not just any owl, I chose Arthur by Tim Holtz.
He is sitting on suitcases and frowning because he doesn't know what to do.
But don't worry, since he is a wise owl, he will figure it out.
If you like my creation, please hop on my blog for a tutorial.

Thank you!!!

In orderly fashion I am starting with the Birds with this Journal page and tackling a few issues... Do come by my blog where I share all my woes!

March 2021 - Silhouettes

 Welcome to our March Challenge. This month's theme was chosen by the Lovely Rachel . The theme is Silhouettes - to ensure your entry counts, please make your main focus silhouettes 

 Rachel

Its my choice of the theme this month and I thought I would go with silhouettes - there are so many different stamps and dies out there that would be perfect for this theme. I just would like you to ensure that whatever you choose to do, the silhouettes are the main focus of your make....


I couldn't resist these silhouettes - I think they're practically perfect in every way! To find out more head over to my blog here. Have a great day!
Hugs rachel xx


Jane 

Happy March everyone spring is now just around the corner. Lighter evenings and warmer temperatures are just what we need right now. For my first silhouette make I used my favourite Visible Image unicorn to make a card.

All the details and a step by step, as always, are over on my blog here. Just gallop on over (or do unicorns fly? I will have to ask my granddaughter who is an expert on unicorns 😉) Have a lovely new month ahead, stay safe.

Bye for now,
