JUNE CHALLENGE | "NANAS"


Pinch and a punch. New challenge this month.  This challenge reminds me of my Baba AKA Grandma.  Miss matched patters and colours that somehow were a style.  If that makes sense?!  Here is the inspiration picture....



This months homegrown challenge Sponsor is one of our faithful favourites - D-lish Scraps.  Please take the time to peruse the shop and pick up a few gorgeous embellishments.  We also have our favourite International Store sponsoring our International winners - Accent Scrap.  Make sure you check out all the gorgeous flair.

Now for some inspiration from our design team:


I was inspired to draw from the image as much as I could. I used a white background and then a mix of busy, colourful patterns including a geometric design. I also added flowers and included pops of yellow inspired by the clogs.
I took inspiration from all the different patterns.
Inspired the patch work bags and the mixture of colours and patterns.Tamara
Inspired by the florals
I was inspired by the yellow clogs. I am on a mission this year to get out of my comfort zone and I certainly did with this one! I never use yellow!! the technique was inspired by a step by step tutorial by Tammy Klingner - the design itself quite different to Tammy's page.
The miss match of patterns got me

I've gone for that patterns in this one.

This is my june layout, I got my inspiration in the color, the flowers and the leaves.
I was inspired by the pops of busy pattern on a more subtle backdrop, and I wanted the yellow to stand out on my layout, the way it does in the image.

I took this months theme of "Patterns and Colours" as a representation of "Mismatched" - some see beauty and others don't - a bit like life really - underneath the picture is a quote that represents how fractured moments shape us as women
Inspired by the florals and that pop of yellow!


Remember when you link up to include your country of Origin to make it a little easier for judging.  AND remember you can link up via the blog using your blog, a facebook link or Instagram link.  You don't have to have a blog to play along.  Of if that is a little too much just message your entry through on our Facebook.  All entries are considered.

This months homegrown sponsor is D-lish Scraps and as always Scrapbook Accent is on board for our international winner.  Make sure you check out their pages.  Without their support we wouldn't be able to reward you for you efforts.

Can't wait to see what you all come up with this month.

MAY CHALLENGE - "APRIL SHOWERS BRINGS MAY FLOWERS"

Pinch and a punch for the first of the Month.  Last month was a bit of a challenge for some so this month we have slowed the pace a little and we have a sketch for you designed by our very own Sue Plumb.  Remember: it is all about your interpretation.



The design team has created some awesome examples for you.




This month we have Cut to You on board as our sponsor.  Your can purchase ORIGINAL cut files to print on your own machine at home or you can order cuts.  The girls this month have featured some of the files available. 

As usual we have Scrap Accent on board as our International Sponsor.  Please remember that we can only continue to have prizes if we have sponsors.  And what keeps sponsors sponsoring?  That's right, sales and exposure.  So, please make sure you check out all our sponsors websites.

Remember to link up you can do it via the link here on the blog or share it to our Facebook Page or tag us on Instagram.  If you link up via the blog make sure you put where you are from in your description so we can choose the correct winners.

APRIL CHALLENGE | KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF

Pinch and a Punch for the first of the month.  This months challenge can go either way depending on your interpretation and experience.
This is the challenge:
Don't think about this too hard.  It is just to get you thinking outside your box.  The DT had a fair bit of discussion around the challenge and there are some very different takes on it.  This is where the interpretation comes in....Your past experience may have you wanting revenge or just celebrating being better than you were before.  But at the end of the day you are going to want to put your best foot forward.

Here are the DT Inspiration - keep an eye on the Facebook Page and I'll share the stories behind the DT layouts





This months Sponsor is Charms Creations.  Head over and check out what Charm has in store! Oh and follow her Facebook page so you get notification of her new releases.

As usual we have Accent Scrapbooking on board again this year as an international Sponsor.  They have changed their name to Scrap Accent as well as their logo but it is the same company and awesome products.  Make sure you check out all our sponsors websites.

Remember to link up you can do it via the link here on the blog or share it to our Facebook Page or tag us on Instagram.  If you link up via the blog make sure you put where you are from in your description so we can choose the correct winners.  DON'T FORGET TO TELL US WHAT INSPIRED YOU!
