It's Wednesday so time to show you my ShortCuts and Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot projects. Let's start with ShortCuts today. This month's sponsor is Deborah from MemoryWorks. She sent us some wonderful kits to work with. This card - again quite clean & simple - was inspired by SheetLoad of Cards July sketch. ShortCuts has teamed up with Caardvarks for their first challenge this month. Head on over to their new challenge post to find out how you can play along and win ShortCuts goodies!!
Starting this month, and each month through the end of the year, ShortCuts will welcome a new Guest Artist. You will be able to see their creations using the ShortCuts products on every Friday for the month. This month our Guest Designer is Lisette Gibbons. Lisette is an amazingly talented scrapbooker and card maker, and she is also a very wonderful person. I can tell, because Lisette is my dear sister-in-law. You can read more about Lisette's Guest DT gig here. Hop on over to her blog to see her gorgeous cards, mini albums and layouts.
Since last week my Wednesday blog posts are also dedicated to Cuttlebug Challenge Blogspot, because the new Be Inspired Challenges are posted on that day. I have been a DT member for only 2 weeks now, but I can tell you I love being a member a lot. The challenges are great. This week's challenge Be Inspired #39 is to create a woodsy outdoor project, using woodsy animals (except for snakes) using twigs, pebbles anything from nature and a fun colour template as a component for this week. Details on this week's challenge and the gorgeous DT projects can be found here. If you participate in all 4 challenges for the month of July you'll be entered in the drawing and have a chance to win some of the new folders going to CHA.
