New Challenges....

I am sure most of you have all seen the new challenges for January 2011.  Here are a couple that I did as part of being on the Creative Team.


White + Royal Blue or Navy with Banners.  I found this one a little difficult.  Not sure why, I fussed and fiddled for ages, with this and that and finally I was happy with this. 

(You love the sand between your toes)

My banners are fabric just stapled on to cardstock.


This month the challenge is to create a layout on Kraft with "SUMMER" as your inspiration, you are also required to use "a SUMMER" word in your title.

I am not usually a Kaiser fan but I totally loved the Seaside range.  It was exactly what I was after to do this challenge. Spot the little birdie pin from the Chip Chop Shop.

(Summer Fun)

I made this it how it turned out!

Love those little cute star fish and whale button!

Go on over and check out all the other CT samples...lots of gorgeous inspiration.  Can't wait to see your entry.  And a huge welcome & congratulations to the new CT members at Kraft It Up.  Look forward to working with you.

Have a fabulous Friday!

  4. Both of these are stunning! WOW! I feel inspired after seeing both of these. I love the 'busy'KIU layout, yet still adore the more simpler WW1 layout. You do both styles very well and I particularly like the details e.g. the fabric/cardstock banner, the little seashells, the handmade flower. I really love your style. I love looking at your blog. Have a nice day, Nadia.
