Scrapbook page about cats

On a roll today. I've done two pages.  One is for a DT sample so you can't see that one til 1 November.

Today's is about cats.

Perth has a Cat Cafe that is for rescue cats. They live there full time and all are named.  You can get a cuppa and go in and spend some time with them. Great for people who can't have a pet for whatever reason.

This layout is entered into the ARTastic challenge blog for October 2018. I haven't entered for a while, mainly because I don't scrap as much as I used to due to my singing hobby taking up so much of my spare time. 

This month is all about monochromatic hues.

Elegant thank you card

Today I have another example to give you for the challenge at Unstampabelles.
You need to use gold glitter/foil and the twist is to use only white and gold.

Now I thought this was quite an easy challenge, that's why I made two samples. You can see the other one in my previous post last week.

What do you think? Do you like it? Would you like to have a go? Why not enter?

A gold and white thank you card

I love October, it's my birthday month.

 Here is a new challenge from us at Unstampabelles.

#84: October - Golden Glitter/Foiling
Twist - Only use white and gold

This combo makes stunning projects. Very elegant. 

I've used a gold card base and gold ribbon. There is a little glitter on the gold flower. The die-cut has a gold foil pattern on it.

I have left quite a bit of "white space".  I hope you like this example and feel compelled to rush off and make something yourself.

This is the price you could win for yourself.

Thanks for looking.

Winter scrapbooking theme challenge

It's October. I love October. It's my birthday on Sunday. Always a fun week. My friends and family have some wonderful things planned for me.

Today's challenge is from Archiscraps where I am a Designer.

Your challenge this month is based around WINTER.

We would love to see your cards, layouts, tags anything to do with winter
Reminder that Christmas isn't far away so maybe a snowy card

Isn't it a cute cabin. I wonder what the view is like.

Here is the layout I came up with. It's my son at an ice skating party. We don't get snow here where I live so this is about as close as we come.

I look forward to seeing what you create.

Button Art

New challenge

The Unstampabelles challenge is ready for you to try.  
#83: September - Button Art
Twist - use Washi Tape

I've chosen to make a card.   I had a lot of fun making it.

The washi tape is black with leaves. Quite stylish.

I've used a stencil to outline an M.  I have then filled it in with red, black and white buttons to match the washi.  I have filled the spaces left with white and red/white seed beads.

Quite pleased with the end result. What do you think?

Happy Hour by the Sea - a layout

Get a load of this crazy building. It is the Gaudi Tile Mosaic Fruit Spire, Sagrada Familia, Barcelona

No automatic alt text available.

This is your inspiration for the September challenge at Archiscraps. Your challenge is to also use fruit in your project somehow.

Here is what I came up with.

 Image may contain: 2 people, including Dale Tiernan, people smiling

I have also chosen to use the colours in the photo but you need not do the same.

Happy creating. I look forward to seeing what you put up.

Card with music notes

Here is a card I made for our singing coach.

I'm entering it in a new challenge (for me) at Allsorts, where the theme is music.
