Challenge 65 Take me HOME.

Hi there it's Jaine here bringing you this next challenge.

At the moment I have such a 'thing' for houses you wouldn't believe and it shows no signs of stopping either.  So it naturally followed that as it's my turn to set the challenge I'd choose houses or home as a theme.  

I want to see houses or castles, whatever you think of as "home" or maybe just the word HOME on a project, whatever comes to mind.

As usual the DT have provided some fantastic and diverse inspiration below to get you going.

I made myself a mini journal and cut the little house from papers from the Brittannia CD - shrunk to fit on the computer.

I used papers and the layered blossoms, to create 3D blooms from Sarah's fabulous new Britannia CD to make my "New Home" card and combined them with some Tim Holtz Alterations die cuts.

I found this unloved printers tray in a charity shop so I rescued it & altered it using Sarah's fantastic new Brittania CD. I used a Tim Holtz Alterations die for the Keyhole, I also added some little crochet flowers & a fabric flower that I made for embellishments. I turned the tiny photos into faux polaroids by mounting them on white cardstock.


The papers,image,sentiment and the bunting are from Sarah's Britania cd, the collection is called English Country garden.Punches are xcut, MS and the oval and circle die is from spellbinders.

I used Sarah Hurley papers from the OZ cd to create a paper pieced 3D castle card.

Challenge 64 - Circles

Hi Folks Jess here with this weeks challenge is Circles - whether it's a card or a scrapbook page, as long as it's circular we don't mind.

You have until midnight on 22nd April to submit your entries.

Here are all the super duper creations from myself and my fellow Teamies:

I've Created a Round Gatefold Card Using the Woodland Whimsies CD

for the Balloon Paper and Topper and Created My Own Sentiment


I used the Wonderland CD, and kraft cardstock as my base, plus Sizzix tattered florals to cut out complimenting flowers from satin.

I used the Easter Tea Party Kit to make a wee circular layout

I used papers from the Easter digi kit to cut all my elements. The bird is Sizzix and the flowers are hand drawn.

For my challenge piece, I chose to make a circular storage container using papers from Sarah's Easter digi kit.

I used Sarah's Steampunk papers to make this little (slightly wonky) circular card.

The papers and balloon image are from the steampunk digi kit. The flowers are from the woodland whimsy stamp set

I've used a mix of papers from the Steampunk CD and from the Wizard School Mini Kit to make a Telescope card.

Thanks for joining us.
