Let's Go Nautical!

Happy Friday!

It's Shabneez here and I hope you enjoyed joining in with the August Elemental Challenge last week.

I can't believe it's the second week of August already!  I've decided to keep with the summer theme and would love to see your NAUTICAL creations - anything to do with the sea really.  The Design Team have made a wonderful variety of cards to get your creative juices flowing!

Your August Elemental Inspiration Challenge

Hello and welcome to August! Speaking of welcomes, thank you for joining in with Svenja's challenge last week, it was lovely to share some welcoming moments with you! 

It's Joanne here this week and as it's the frst Friday of the month we have an Elemental Inspiration Picture which we hope will inspire your crafting this week.

Just choose a minimum of THREE elements from the picture to use when you make your card, remember the colour palette counts as ONE element.



There's lots to choose from - suggestions include wicker/basket weave, marble, bottles, drinking glass, lemons, herbs (mint and rosemary feature here), lavendar, pasta, nuts, bubbles, reflective surfaces, sapphire, crown, medallion. I'm sure there are lots of other things too!

Here's what the Design Team made of it:

Hello and Welcome!

Thank God it’s Friday – we have a right heatwave here in Germany and I can’t wait for the weekend to begin.
All your wonderful summery cards last week made the heat a little easier to bear – and now we all have tons of inspiration for the next summer weekend ahead – yay!

But don’t let the sunshine keep you from crafting. Of course we have a challenge prepared for you:
Welcome Cards
A while ago we had Farewell Cards as a theme, so let’s go for the opposite now! Maybe a new baby has arrived or you want to welcome a new co-worker? Or maybe someone has been travelling and you’d like to welcome them back? Never miss an opportunity to tell someone “Hey, welcome, I’m glad you’re here!” So, who are you happy about right now?

Or maybe you want to take a look at the extra inspiration the Design Team members have prepared for you:

The Great Outdoors

Thank you for all your sporty cards last week.

This week after lots of sunshine and hot weather I’m in a very summery mood. So let’s enjoy all the positive aspects of summer. And one of them is definitely being outdoors (at least for me).

Go outside - it's summer !
Let's celebrate spending time outside in the sunshine! What can you do outside in the summer? Show us on your cards: Swimming, having a BBQ, walking around in flipflops or barefoot, reading a book on a deck chair, eating ice-cream, lying in the park, having a picnic etc.

Here are some ideas from the Design Team members.

A Sporting Chance

Hello - Happy Friday!
We hope you are ready for a new cardmaking challenge.
First though, we'd like to thank you for sharing the cards you made last week inspired by our July mood-board, it really was a sunny, inspiring collection. 

A Sporting Chance
There are masses of different sporting events going on over the summer; local, national, international or just in your own back garden!  So this week's challenge is all about sport. Make and share a card with a sporting element of any kind.  Sadly, card-making is not a sport or we'd all be winners, wouldn't we!
You know what they say, "it's all about the taking part", so join in and have fun
