Don't fall over, I made a male card!
Baroque Motifs Treat Box ...

Garden Whimsy, Outlaw scrapbook page and another boy card!

Hello, hope you had a super weekend. I had a lovely weekend - wasn't the weather divine? Love those sunny autumn days. Had a workshop with some lovely customers on Saturday, we had lots of fun with some make and takes and demonstrations and I was pleased to see everyone so inspired to go home and keep creating. I think I have psosibly tasted the most delicious Pistachio cake and american style dip I have ever tasted as well (no - not together!). You get very spoilt as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator.

Then on Sunday night, our team had a cybercrop where you stay home and create items around challenges on the team forum. Today's posts are results of the challenges. This first one was a sketch challenge.

Garden Whimsy



I have used Groovy Guava, Purely Pomegranate and Basic Grey cardstock. The lovely stamp set is Stampin' Up!'s Garden Whimsy and the greeting is Stampin' Up! Short and Sweet. I have also used the Purely Pomegranate In-Colour ribbon from the ribbon swaps and the lovely new rhinestone brads.

The next challenge was a scrabook page using patterned paper. This page features the Outlaw Designer Series paper with the new rub-ons (which rub on so easily!) and matching cardstock colours of Really Rust, Sage Shadow and Naturals Ivory. I have also used the Baroque Motifs stamp set.

Finally, this challenge was to use lots of circles, dots or anything round. I decided to make this into a male card, but now I'm not so sure if the orange is too girly - what do you think?

Boy card



 I have used Wild Wasabi, Bashful Blue and Brilliant Blue cardstock/ink with the Jersey Shore and Pumpkin Pie Designer Series Papers. The circle stamp is from Seeing Spots and the greeting is from A Little Birthday Cheer.

Have a great night,

Love what you have done with that Jersey Shore paper there. Great creations Claire.


nice work again Claire, interesting colour combination on the card but it works

The cards are great, and I LOVE the scrapbook layout!


Very nice Claire. I absolutely adore the layout.


definitely not too girly Claire. How on earth did you cut out those circles? Loved the layout of you and your boy. The outlaw paper is definitely a must if you have boys. The whimsy card is very delicious!
