Almost every month we run a monthly challenge, and from time to time there are swaps you can join. Details will be posted here and on our FaceBook Page

Our March challenge is a colour challenge...check it out :

The rules: Create a scrapbook page using these colours, or shades of these colours.
                small amounts of other colours are allowed, but try to keep your page as close as you can to the colour pallet.

 In my sample page I have used a grey patterned paper by Making Memories, called Brun Antique. I've added cream paper, lace and petals and used paper ribbon the same'ish shade of pink as in the pallet. I decided  to use a deeper shade of blue as pale looked a little washed out beside the water in my photo.

Hot Tip
Many of the cutting dies will allow you to cut materials other than just paper. I have used a Tim Holtz Petal Die, added three layers of fabric on top and popped it through my cuttle bug. Do note that I have used the C and B plate only, along with two sheets of cardboard is ensure the correct pressure, so as not to damage my cuttle bug!

Simply pinch the three petal layers together and secure with a stitch to create the perfect flower for your page.


Our Prize this month is
  • One pack of Creative Imaginations frames by Marah Johnson
  • One pack of Melange Creative Imaginations rub-ons

Email your entries to me at by Midnight on Saturday the 30th of March.
