August Colour Challenge

Lucinda back again with our August colour challenge.

It's always hard to narrow down the option for colours, there are so many gorgeous options!

This time, I've gone for something that's quite simple on the face of it, although with many permutations.



As we have two neutrals in the selection, I'm going to be strict with this one - no other neutrals apart from black and white to be used, so just three colours in total! Different shades of colour are fine.


Our guest designer this weeks is:
Andreja M - Mavricne Ideje





Here is some inspiration from the Design Team:

Lucinda



Alison



Fabiola

August sketch challenge

Hello, it's Lucinda back with you again to host the challenge for August.

We kick off the month, as always, with a sketch.

Something a bit different for you this time, but I hope lots of ways to play with this so it'll inspire some fun cards. We always get great entries so I'm confident!


Those of you paying close attention will notice that the challenge numbers are out of order. There's a good reason for this. Originally I was supposed to be hosting the challenge in September, but as I am due to give birth at the start of September, I thought I'd probably be a bit tied up! So my lovely DT colleague EK has agreed to swap months with me, you'll have to wait till September for her amazing challenges. Although if bump decides to come early, she and the others will have to step in!


Our guest designers this weeks are:
Annemarie and Merit - Scrapcard Girls




Here is some inspiration from the Design Team:

July Theme Challenge - Non-Traditional Christmas Card


Morning All, Myrna here.
The third Saturday of each month at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is either a theme or recipe challenge. I decided to go for a theme this month and I want to see a Non-Traditional Christmas Card. You can make a non-traditional card in numerous ways like changing up the subject matter, the colours, papers, or even using non-Christmas stamps and dies to create a Christmas card. Please share what you did.





 Here is some inspiration from the team:

Andreja
