Crafting When We Can Challeges #21 - Summer Fun

This Challenge the theme is Summer Fun so we want to see someone or something having fun in the sun.

We were given an image from our generous Sponsors
The Winner will receive 3 images of their choice

and our 2nd Sponsor is

Crafty Ribbons
The Winner will receive a ribbon bag.

I chose to make a scrapbook page using 2 photos of my daughter.  I really like these pictures and enjoyed making this page.  The only problem was when I looked through my scrapbook I found I had already made a page using the exact same photos.

The blue base is a bazzill basic bought from Craft Den.  The flowery paper is from a K & Co 300 paper pack bought from a show last year with an edge cut using a MS punch around the page set.  I cut the last edge at an angle and the pattern didn't quite match but still hey hoo I've more things to worry about at the moment and it doesn't effect the lovely memory these pictures bring back to mind.  The flowers were cut out of the blue bazzil and some scraps with a Woodware punch I then coloured the scrap with a green Copic.  The gems were from Poundland and really lift the look of the flowers.  My beautiful flower girl is from MilkCoffee and she is called Lisbeth loves Sunflower.  I printed her out in 2 different sizes and coloured her with Promarkers and Copics, I coloured her Sunflower blue to match my photos.  I have left a space for my journalling when I get around to it but put a digital label on the photo so I can remember when it was.

If you've got a creation that follows the theme then hop over to the Challenge and leave it with the blue froggy, if you've followed the rules you'll be in with a chance of winning the great prizes on offer.

Crafting When We Can Challenges 20 - Mint Choc Chip (mint green & brown)

This Challenge we are doing a colour combo the only problem is everyone has a different idea of what mint is, we all know it's green but what green.  Ice-cream tends to be a pale green but the mint plant in my garden if quite a dark green and the mint jelly from the jar is very dark green.  So I chose a green I thought was a minty colour and used that. 

Our sponsor for this Challenge is Kenny K Downloads and we were kindly given a choice of the images from the store.  My daughter chose Brianna Blaster.  As Kenny's images are so detailed I decided to print the image A5ish and colour it in and then scan the image into my computer and size it up and print out 4 copies.  I used all the images to layer up my image.  The mats are are cut from Tim Holtz dies and the tag was cut from a piece of 12 x12 double sided paper but I don't know the name (the tag is the same paper of the mat but using the other side).  The black swirls are pieces of borders from Poundland and the ribbon is from Craft Den coloured with an Anna Griffin Chocolate ink.

Hop over to the Challenge and join in with your wonderful creations.
