CR84FN #66

Elegance is the theme with this week's CR84FN colours

They just exude class and style. 

I went for a simple design that I thought was elegant in it's own way. I die cut three colours of card stock using an undulating die from Papertrey Ink (In the Meadow). I then pieced the die cuts together and embossed the lot. I thought about adding a few more embellishments but then decided I liked it the way it was :)

Hope you'll join in on the fun! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Just Us Girls #160 - Photo inspiration

Hello all! It's Saturday - time for a new JUGS challenge. This week, Lisa has a BEAUTIFUL photo inspiration challenge for us all!

So many elements in this photo to sink your teeth into! The colors and fall theme caught my attention.

Pretty CAS...I know, something new and different for me LOL! I had seen a card a long time ago that had a tree on a dark background with a white circle behind the leaves so that's what I tried to recreate. It didn't turn out quite as I was hoping but I still like the end result :)

Happy fall y'all!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

CR84FN #65

Welcome back for another beautiful colour palette from CR84FN!

Such a soft and gorgeous collection of colours. 

Although I first thought these colours would make a fabulous non-traditional Christmas palette, all I could think about was cupcakes :) So I went with it.

Make sure to swing by the CR84FN blog for more fabulous DT inspiration!

Just Us Girls #157: Sketch Challenge

Happy weekend to you all!

It's Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada and we're excited to spend some time with family, eating yumminess :) What are your plans for the weekend?

It's time for a new challenge over at JUGS; time to get sketchy.

Here's my take;

As fall is in full swing, I wanted to go with a rustic sort of color scheme. I did a few negative die cuts in orange card stock then stamped gingham in yellow underneath. The woodgrain dry embossing is one of my all time fabs and I just had to dig it out again. I love this rustic twine too and thought it would compliment the colors well. Pardon the pictures; I left my camera at work so these were taken with my handy dandy iPhone ;)

I hope you find time to play along! Make sure to swing by the JUGS blog to see what the lovely JUGheads have whipped up :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
