Late month inspiration for you all

Hello again my lovelies, Annette here with my very late take on the awesome challenge given to us this month, by the very talented Kim. The brief was to use Stitching, Stamping and Stencilling on your project, I managed to tick all the boxes on this and with some beautiful pics of a truly gorgeous lady (stolen oops borrowed) from her facebook page, I created a page that I am so very happy with.

Used lots of gorgeous Scrapmatts chippies, prima flowers and alphas, kaiser flowers,rhinestones and stamp, washi from CraftQueen as well as the Inka Gold - Rosa for the stencil which was the small Cherry Blosoom. The pp is pink paislee, not too sure about the two background ones.

Really loved how pretty and feminine this page ended up, so thanks again to Kim for such a great challenge.

Still plenty of time to enter this challenge, would love to see waht you can do with it.
Until then
Hugs and Love

SSS Challenge- mid month inspiration :)

Hi everyone, Cheryl here with my take on the "three S" challenge set by Kim. I have opted for another OTP project this month, and this time have made a canvas, taking inspiration from classes at the Brissie expo and conducted by our own Miss Kim and also Rachael Grieg. Stitching and stencilling are on the actual page and I have painted and stamped around the edges of the canvas

Thanks for the challenge Kim, really enjoyed doing this one.
Miss Annette will pop her layout up, shortly.

Stitching, Stamping, Stencilling - July Challenge (The SSS Challenge)

Hello, beautiful people Kim here with the July Challenge and a VERY special Guest Designer to help inspire you along with our awesome DT.

 Without further ado, I would like to introduce to you, the marvellous....
  Rachael Funnell
Hello Ladies!
My name is Rachael Funnell
I live on the outskirts of Cowra in NSW with my wonderful husband Jason..
I am lucky enough to be a Stay At Home Mother to our 2 gorgeous children
Ethan who is 10 & 1/2 years & Chloee who will turn 9 on the 2nd of July...
I also run/work a small business with hubby!! Then in my spare time scrapbooking is the thing for me,
I am lucky enough to be on a few Designing Teams
Anna’s Craft Cupboard,   Stuck Sketches,   Green Tara, Twiddleybitz  & as of July Kaisercraft
I find that even after 6 years of scrapbooking my style is still evolving
ATM most of my creations are best described as mixed media, eclectic  with layers, lots of stamping & doubled up photos....
If you were interested in more of my creations my blog is:
A big thanks to Kim for asking me to join in on this month’s Challenge! it was right up my alley!   Open-mouthed smile 
Kim has also sent me 3 Questions to answer
Where do you scrap? in my Office/Scraproom.... which I’ve just gave it a make over to work for me better & If you ask hubby he will say what office?
you mean scrapbooking room now..  LOL!
What is on your scrap desk at the moment? a layout in progress for up coming Designing Team work for Kasiercraft...
Tell us who are some of the people that inspire you? In all honesty all Scrappers inspire me...
I do Admire the work of  these VERY TALENTED scrappers.........  Mumkaa aka Magda Bolinska,Georgia Heald,Melinda Thompson, Jasmine Shea,Di Garling,Kim Price,
Kelly Foster, Erin Blegen,Trudi Harrison,Stacey Young,Larissa Albernaz, Helen Tilbury, Cathy Cafun & of course Kim Ewins just to name a few...

 A HUGE thank you to Rachael for joining us this month....
As a lot of you know I love to use machine stitching on most of my layouts and stencils/masks are so very popular at the moment and also most of us have stamps that we really want to use more so.....dada!!
 The July Triple "S" Challenge.....

So I would like to see
1. STITCHING- be it machine stitching or hand-stitching or even draw on stitching.
3. STENCILLING/masking. You can use the stencil/mask however you please, (with paint, ink, texture paste).
 here is Rachael's take....
