A few weeks ago I was asked by my friend Holly from Holly Beary Creations if I would be interested in joining her challenge blog, The Friday Mash-Up, as a guest designer for the month of August. Of course I said yes and I am going to show you a few of the projects that I have created for the blog so far.
Challenge #220 // Country Fair
For my first project, I decided to use the "inspired by the state fair" challenge. I used the inspiration picture below that Holly provided me with to get my creativity flowing. I searched around my craft room for patterned papers, dies, stamps...anything that had a country fair theme to me.
I think what I was able to come up with is pretty cute and fits the theme perfectly!
I used a pennant die and cut out six pieces from various patterned papers from the Pebbles Fun in the Sun collection and pieced them together to create this banner. I added a strip of glitter paper on the side of my panel and another strip of rainbow patterned paper to finish it off. I used a sentiment that I thought reminded me of the fun and happiness one experiences at a fair and white heat embossed it onto a coordinating piece of cardstock. Such a fun card with lots of color!
Challenge #221 // Summer Flowers & Color Combo
For this challenge, we were asked to be inspired by summer flowers and the color combo featured in the challenge graphic.
When I was looking at the challenge graphic, I realized that a project I had already made fit the challenge perfectly. Thankfully, Holly let me use the project to share with her viewers! If you have been reading my blog recently, you may recognize this stamped muslin bag from my stamp launch last month.
I mean...the challenge picture has a sunflower and everything! Too perfect!
I hope you have enjoyed the projects I shared with you today! I will be back up on The Friday Mash-Up challenge blog in the last week of August...make sure to check back!
