Rules? We don’t need any rules! With school starting and soccer and busy schedules over here the last thing I want is more rules. So let’s get wild with an ANYTHING goes week. Create something and share with us - we can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to.
Suzz went small on her project today. She pulled out a few dominoes and created a mini book with a Parisian theme.
Tracy's fellow Design Team member Sarah has recently given birth to a
beautiful baby daughter Ruby and when Sarah sent the team a snapshot, Tracy was inspired almost immediately to create a card to commemorate this special occasion.
The red in Ruby's little outfit inspired me to get my fired brick Distress ink out and create an inky background to showcase Ruby's beautiful snapshot. This card just flowed from start to finish and came together beautifully, I love creating when everything works so perfectly! To add that personal touch I added Ruby's name to jump rings adhered with Glossy Accents along with many gold highlights and machine stitching for that hand made feel.
Ashli is often inspired by a simple sheet of patterned paper, especially when it makes her smile.
"When Pigs Fly, by Graphic 45 just makes me giggle! Those little pigs were just begging to be fussy cut and put on a page. After roughly cutting 7 simple squares from cream card stock, various October Afternoon patterned papers were used to embellish my little interactive folders. A finishing touch of Doodle Twine invites the viewer to open each card and see what lies beneath. Perhaps something silly like... when pigs fly, I will stop drinking coffee!"
Candy knows that the Halloween season of crafting is fast approaching. She's getting a jump on it by creating this spooktacular coffin.
Sandra Mouwen finally received the pictures of the party she organised for her parents, and she utilized them to create this frame album.
) was inspired to try something completely different - after all, it is no rules week, right? I made a crafty video to share and I hope you enjoy. I hope to play with more videos on the challenge blog in future:
Sarah played with a fusion of colours and styles to create her funky card.
I just love this sassy lady from Tim's Pattern Pieces stamp set! I love her retro look and stylish clothes which just ooze lots of 1950's glamour. But I thought I would bring her into the 21st century with a splash of Dylusions Spray Inks and some funky shapes teamed up with Tim's Mixed Media dots. I had fun mixing things up with punched circles, splatters and bold colours, all finished off with Chit Chat words to express my my thought of the day. Be different. Be yourself!
Terry was having fun with the No Rules and made a wallhanger with no rules at all.
Dan started out to make a card but ended up with something he's framed and put on his wall.
OK, so I'll admit that I don't get to the theatre often enough to have seen the musical Les Miserables, but I have seen the poster and this reminds me of that a bit. Somehow. No? The face is one of Tim Holtz's iconic wood-mounted stamps, happily now available in the Classics #5 set. I'm loving that Tim has brought out these classics wood-free, I only have room for maple on pancakes! Things I used on the background included Distress Stains in Aged Mahogany and Mustard Seed and some Festive Berries Distress Ink.
Anna-Karin made a mini-book called ‘Postcards from the past’
