Three card set

I went looking for a new card challenge to join yesterday. Found an oldy but a goody with a nice sketch.

It is the Feeling Sketchy October challenge.

I remembered some Cherry Arte black rub-ons I have that I thought would suit. Talk about stash busting! They are quite old. Rub ons often deteriorate over time but these have been reliable.

I decided to make a 3 card set.

I used the light blue paper from this paper pack.

Thanks for looking.

Thank you card with a tag

I love October. It is my birthday month. I will celebrate this Wednesday.

How about some inspiration?

You could try this month's challenge at Unstampabelles.

Here is the criteria and my example

#105 OctoberInspire - who or what was your inspiration into the world of paper craft? 

                 TWIST: a Thank You card or tag using the word Inspire 

A tag on a card. Inspired by my Mum who introduced me to crafting at a young age.

I have used a Phase Eight clothing label tag, which was a double.  I love that clothing brand. This is the back. Yes, I also love a bargain. haha

I added a different coloured piece of vellum on each one and a different piece of patterned paper on each as well.
Then, I used some scraps from another project, mostly Kaisercraft bits.
Lastly, the black word Inspire is a sticker from Creative Memories. Appropriate for the challenge because I got into proper scrapbooking from a Creative Memories home class way back when.

Qantas Club - layout for Archi-scraps

 October is here and so is another challenge at Archiscraps. Just in case you don't know, we now upload our entries to our facebook page here.

Inspo pic is:

Here is my layout.

I thought the inspo pic looked quite moody so I wanted to do a page that reflected that. I have added light pink to brighten it up a little. I have cut a circle from the middle of the floral paper and flipped it to the back side, which was white. This duplicates the white plates in the photo. I also have a circle die-cut with a little plane on it. Lots of different layers here.  Some of the papers and the alpha stickers came from a set given out at Memoranza in 2006 by Creative Memories. Wow, old stash. Good to use some of it.

I am providing the prize this month. I made some tags and flags and there are two paper packs. The papers are big enough you can mount 4x6 photos on to them. The papers are exclusive, cannot be purchased, Creative Memories papers.

Get your thinking caps on and join us.

Flowers for a funeral

 This month at ARTastic challenge blog there is a very pretty art inspo and the criteria is to use flowers. I know how many of you love to use flowers so I expect there will be a lot of entries.

Here is what I did.

Those are Prima flowers and leaves in the middle. They do make very nice flowers.

Looking forward to seeing what you do.
