The For the Love of Pretty Paper Facebook group have started a series of challenges to use up some of our stash. For me this is great as I'm on my spending freeze at the moment! One challenge was to use our wood grain stash, patterned paper, wood veneer etc. I went through my stash and pulled out anything wood related I could find and. When I think of wood I think of the great outdoors and campin, so I pulled a photo from our camping trip in April and scrapped this layout.
I finished off by using die cut shapes from Fancy Pants, a Flair badge, some word stickers from Crate Paper (my fave at the moment) and some sprinkles of Heidi Swapp Gold colour shine.

The last couple of weeks has seen me making some cards for birthdays and an anniversary. The beginning of July is busy for me card wise with three birthdays and an anniversary.
I ended up only make two birthday cards as I started a third but then misplaced it somewhere. I still haven't found where I put it, no doubt I'll find in around Christmas time!
Next up was an anniversary card for Ian's sister and brother-in-law.
For this I used papers and project life cards from Dear Lizzy Daydreamer. I stamped the sentiment with a 99p stamp from Hobbycraft. The sentiment reads all together so I inked up the beginning to stamp above the heart then stamped the end below, however when I did this there was still some ink on the stamp so I had to colour in the heart to disguise it a little bit!

Welcome to July and another new challenge from Challenge YOUrself. This months challenge is a colour combo and sketch challenge
As I've said before when I scrap a colour combo I pull out any papers I have which match the palette and go from there. As these are quite summery colours it's no surprise I picked photos from a trip to the beach last summer.
I decided to use a cut apart from a Simple Stories paper as my title
