June Challenge 2022.

 Our June Challenge is based around this picture


Gardens by the Sea in Singapore.

This got me thinking about leaves and greenery. So your challenge this month is to 

Use lots of leaves and greenery

Maybe you have fabric leaves that came with flowers,or on their own.

Maybe you have flourish with a bling ranches of leaves

Maybe you have wood veneer leaves or some other embellishment like skeleton leaves.

Whatever it is now is the time to scrap those garden photos or floral bouquets.

Theresa Kamp is sponsoring us this month. Here is your prize

It's Kaisercraft "Take note" collection.



 Now here's our Design Team ideas.

May 2022 challenge

 


Our MAY challenge is flying buttresses. Choose a central photo (layout) or die cut (card) and think of a way to have strips  or curves coming out from it.

Here's 2 examples by Paige Evans 




Here's another idea I spotted at Chid Kids Crafty Corner: Hello Kitty | Elaine King | Black Backgrounds (chidkids26.blogspot.com)




One way could be to use those pieces at the bottom of scrapbook paper.

Our prize this month is kindly donated by Mary Bennetts.


Now on to the Design team ideas.  (Our design team ideas might help you further. )

April challenge

 


Here's a nice archway for inside a house.

Your challenge this month is to use those brackets that you might have in your stash.

(We all have alpha sets with brackets that we haven't used. Get them out and find an interesting way of using multiples, or those large die cut brackets. )

Some ideas I found




You could use a combination of brackets or many brackets in a design. It's up to you!

Here's our DT ideas.
