The SRM Challenge: July 4th

 We are changing things up at The SRM Challenge blog and making four ways to have fun with SRM products.  Our monthly challenge now has four different options:
Choose any one, two, three, or all four of the challenges to jump start your inspiration.

I was inspired by the "inspiration challenge."  I loved the basket weave background, the black/grey and pop of red.  I perused my SRM stash and chose the thank you sticker sentiment and placed it on top of a bright blank red polka dot label sticker.  To imitate the grey flip flop straps, I made a bow from stone twine.
My lattice-embossed layer is Tim Holtz/Core-dinations kraft-core "Nostalgic collection" card stock that I embossed and sanded down to mimic the basket weave in the challenge.  I used my xyron for all of my layering.

Which challenge jump starts your mojo?  Just remember to add at least one SRM product to your creation and link up one, two, three, or four times at The SRM Challenge.  I hope to see you there!

Twilight challenge at Cut It Up!

 Tree from the Cricut "Bloom" cartridge; sentiment by Stampin' Up!

It's time to Cut It Up again...get out those dies or die cut machines and create a Twilight-themed card.  My sweet friend and design team sister, Katie Brooks, came up with this twilight theme.
  How does this theme inspire you?  I personally was thinking of the Stephenie Meyer series...I am totally team Edward...but I discovered this fun background paper in my stash and went with a concrete interpretation of the theme.  And unfortunately I have a relative who recently lost her father, so this became a sympathy card.

Kadoodle Bug Designs is offering up a $10 gift card prize to the winner of this challenge...will it be you?  You have until July 9th to link up your card, layout, or project at Cut It Up.

Happy Friday!

Summer Lovin' SRM challenge

There is still time to play in the monthly challenge at The SRM Challenge:  Summer Lovin'.  I am using this as an end-of-year teacher appreciation card.
I used the yellow daisy from Stickers by the Dozen "Thank You" and my sentiment banner came from We've Got Your Border:  Bright.  You can find these sticker sheets at the SRM store.  The sunshine overlay was cut from my Cricut "Artbooking" cartridge and the background paper is "Modern Homemaker" by October Afternoon.

I am anxious to see what YOU make for the Summer Lovin' challenge...just remember to use at least one SRM product on your project and then link up at The SRM Challenge blog for a chance to win some SRM goodies.  I hope you win!

Happy Saturday!
