Ok, so I’m a little late with my sample for this week’s challenge on Michelle’s Challenge Blog. I think you’ll like it though!

In case you’ve missed the previous challenges, join in every Tuesday for a new challenge introduced on Michelle Perkett Studios Challenge Blog! Make sure to check out the blog for more ideas on meeting this week’s challenge!

There will be a prize involved and you have until Monday, October 4th.

This week is challenge 47 —-> make a “girlie” card with bling using one of Michelle’s images.

If you don’t have any Michelle Perkett Studio images, there are freebies at the Michelle Perkett Studio Paper Craft Planet group and the CDAC group and more for sale at Michelle’s Etsy store.

Here’s a card that I made with Willow the Autumn Fairy. Isn’t she exquisite??

There’s a new challenge going on at the P K Glitz Blog called “Shake, Rattle and Roll”!

Create a project of some kind using P K Glitz products with a shaker box too! It can be a card, scrapbook page or altered item-you choose!

Here’s one to encourage you to play along. It’s a card using a rubber stamped background, foam tape as the shaker foundation and a piece of plastic as the window. I did a little extra rubber stamping of the smaller seahorse in blue on the backside of the plastic! Isn’t he pretty?

What are you waiting for? Take out those little beads, glitter and whatnot to put inside of YOUR shaker!

I met with my ATC (Artist Trading Card) Club this past weekend. Those girls are SO fun! We laugh and trade stories of our lives over the past month or two since we last met. It’s boggling what can happen over that short period of time!

Our August theme was Victorian and our September was Bling. Since there is only 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ to work on, small stamps and images work best. It is the ultimate to use up those small scraps and embellishments that hang around your work space! I can’t tell you how long I’ve had the self-adhesive hand-dyed silk that served as the backdrop for the chandelier – TOO LONG! I had just enough to make 5 ATCs!

Anyway, take a peek and be inspired by these small marvels!

Hey, I’m getting back into the Project 12 mode with July’s summary layout. July’s sketch from Becky Fleck had the most pictures so far in Project 12. It was good for me! I took Shimelle’s online class, Love Your Pictures, Love Your Pages and so in taking pictures for the class, I had a lot to share this month!

My theme has been to use BasicGrey products which take up a large part of my current stash. I feel fantastic using up the recent and older lines! It will help me make room for the new lines! Somehow it never works out that I use more than I buy…

Project 12

Supplies:
BasicGrey paper, tags and stickers
Border punches
P K Glitz glitter and Sticky Paper
