Now for my creation for this week.
Sandra from Sandra’s Scrapshop was giving away one of her templates recently, just for a short time, and I managed to email her in time so I wanted to share what I created with it.
The template was for this lighthouse card which has been cut on my Silhouette Cameo. Please excuse the blur towards the top of the lighthouse. I think it’s the embellishments I’ve used there, as no matter how many photos I took they all came out much the same.
My main image and the sentiment are from the Summer Breeze Collection by Magnolia. If I use a Magnolia image that you cannot locate in the store you can email Laura via her contact page and she will order them in for you.
I decorated the lighthouse using some retired Stampin’ Up papers. The cattails are cut from my Silhouette Cameo along with the Seagull & Boat wheel. The anchor is a die from the Doohickey Club #1. The butterflies are from the Beautiful Wings embosslit by Stampin’ Up. I’ve added some real shells and a glass bottle that I picked up at the local discount shop. The glass shell, starfish and rope is from my stash.
This challenge will also last for 2 weeks instead of the usual one week and includes both Team A & Team B inspiration.
This week, as always, we are sponsored by The Paper Shelter and Veronica & Pedro are offering a fabulous prize of $30 to spend at their site.
If you use a TPS image in your creation you will receive the full $30 to spend on their gorgeous designs, and if you haven’t used a TPS image then you will win 3 Digis of your choice from their site.
I am so loving the new Maja Design papers from the Coffee in the Arbour collection. For todays card I’m using the Grandma’s old procelain cups print with the gorgeous Angel digi stamp by The Paper Shelter.
