Challenge #311 - For the Moms

It's Amanda here with this week's challenge.
This week in honour of Mother's Day we are celebrating the moms, 
or the mother figures, in our lives!
For me, it is an especially fitting theme as today is my mom's birthday!

For my project I created a layout about my mom and I from when I was young.

This is what the rest of the team came up with!



We can't wait to see your projects!

UYS # 310 - Mood Board

Hello :) Tina here this week with this fun challenge! Mood Board inspiration as below (be inspired by the mood board below to create your project. It could be colors, shapes, items, etc). I jumped on this challenge as soon as I seen the bird photo in the bottom left corner :) There is so many themes that you can create from this mood board.

Here is what I created :) I was inspired by the young bird, by the flowers and by the soft colors. You can see more about this project over at my blog:

Now lets see what the girls created from this fun challenge:

 I've been working on this mini since I saw the ultra-feminine moodboard.
(more pix and pages on blog)

The flowers in the mood board reminded of a pictures I took a few years back of peonies blooming along the parade path during my town's Spring Fling celebration.

I used Simple Stories Romance Collection for this layout about me and my wonderful hubby.


I was inspired by the colors on the board to create this card.

We look forward to seeing your creation from this fun challenge.....

Challenge #309 - Vellum

Hello! Gail here with this week's challenge: VELLUM

We'd like you to use some vellum on your project this week.

Here's my quick and easy card. I took some gold printed vellum and coloured the backs of the flowers with distress ink.

Here's what the other team members have come up with:


I'm using up some vellum scraps and getting a head start on some Christmas cards.
For this one I backed the tag with some vellum and 
also punched some snowflakes out of some vellum.

 I found a piece of vellum with a sentiment stamped already in my stash and thought it suitable for the challenge :)

 I used different colours of distress oxides on the background of my tag, I just swiped the pads over the tag and added a little water, added a little wooden heart and tadaaaa .... ready!

I heat embossed black embossing powder on Vellum Cardstock and then colored the back side of the butterfly with Stampin' Up Blends.

For my project I created some vellum embellishments as well as added a layer of vellum behind my photo. There will be a process video up on my channel through the week. 
Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling, text

I used printed "brother"vellum behind the pictures of my 2 boys. 

I embossed a piece of vellum with my swiss dot embossing folder for the front of my card.
