This weekend I got a chance to actually sit and craft in my new craft room/guest room. So far I am liking the layout and it seems to be working well for me. :)
There were a ton of challenges out there for inspiration but these are the ones that I was pulled to immediately:
1. CASE This Sketch
I really thought this week's sketch over at CASE This Sketch was awesome - it took me outside of my comfort zone but was definitely fun to play with.
2. Create with Connie and Mary
This week Create with Connie and Mary had a really fun colour challenge for us - Blackberry Bliss (my favourite Stampin' Up! Colour!!), Soft Sky and Smoky Slate or Silver.
3. Friday Mashup
It's been quite some time since I've had a chance to play with this challenge and it's a really fun one!
This week's Mashup! Challenge is:
- Create a project with "Butterflies".
- Create a project using "Lace on it".
- or Mash it Up! and create a project using "Butterflies and Lace".
I've chosen to create a project with "Butterflies". If I have a chance later in the week, I'll create one with both lace and butterflies as I am in love with Stampin' Up!'s new lace ribbon in the new In Colours!
Here is my creation:
It's hard to tell but the sentiment is heat embossed in silver.
