Autumn Glow with Sarah Hurley

Hi All,
Time for a challenge with the lovely (and very busy at the moment!!) Sarah Hurley.  Keep your eyes peeled, not only for our challenges, but also some very new and even more exciting news and products.

It's my turn to choose this month's challenge and I decided on Autumn Glow.
I love this time of year, still hanging on to the warm sunny days of summer but that lovely feeling as the leaves begin to change and show off their golden tones.

Whatever your Autumnal inspiration is - we want to see your creations!

Thank you so much for visiting and joining in our fabulous Challenge. Don't forget to have a look around all of the DT's Blogs for some amazing inspiration.

For my Autumn Glow project, I've used papers from the Farmers Market and Scrap Basics Earth Tone Polka Dots Digital Kits to make my sun-ray background. I've then punched leaves in the same papers to create an Autumn Wreath. I've added die cut shapes and ribbon too.

Sarah Hurley Challenge Time!!

Hi folks,

Hope you are all well, happy and enjoying the fantastic summer!!!  I can't believe we are into August already - how did that happen??!!

Another month, so another challenge with the lovely Sarah Hurley.  This month sees my super talented teamie Claireliz choosing our theme.  Here are a few words from Claire explaining all:

It's Claireliz here bringing you this month's challenge which is:


We want to see all your chunky creations, whether you use ruffled ribbon, texture paste,embossing powder or a full packet of 3d foam pads or whatever you like to use to add a bit of oopmh to your projects.
Check out all of the Design Teams creations for loads of different ideas...
I have to say, I was a little bit nervous of this project, as I don't really use texture pastes and things like that (yet!!), so I played a bit safe and used my card itself as the dimensional part of the challenge.
I printed papers and embellies from the Gatsby Digi Kit to decorate my card, and to add some texture, I pleated a strip of paper and created a rosette and decorated with a flower and some gems.

You have until midnight Sunday 25th August to enter & winners will be drawn on 28th August.
Good Luck and happy crafting!!!!!!
