Creative Cottage Challenge Blog Week 1 - NEW

It's the launch of the Creative Cottage Challenge Blog, we hope you will all join us this week. The challenge for you this week is to use something new. That means to use anything you have new in your stash. It is not necessary to use downloads from the Creative Cottage, but it would be lovely if you could. There are some lovely free downloads available here. Or to browse the Creative Cottage shop for other downloads look here.
This week we have this fabulous prize up for grabs the lovely Bags of Style download. You will adore the papers in here.

I decided to use some of the new papers from the soon to be released downloads Little Monkeys Pirate Adventure. The images are perfect for little boy cards and fabulous matching papers to go with them. I have used only ribbon and card from my own stash, everythng else is donloadable from the kit! Back with more samples from this fabulous kit shortly.

I am really loving the easel cards at the moment and can't resist using this style for just about anything i can!

I also made these cards using the fabulous Creative Cottage Download kit called Home Sweet Home, and is available here to buy for the bargain price of £1.99

Another easel card, using the birds to hold it up. These papers are just gorgeous, i love the pink and brown combination, so these are right up my street.

The flowers on this card have been printed from the kit , cut out and glossy accented. Have only used my martha stewart leaf punch additional to the kit, and a couple of pearl flat back gems.

Have actually used a punch for these flowers and leaves, and added diamantes on the top right hand tree. The sentiment is in the kit.

Ribbon from my stash.

Again flower has been printed and cut out, the only addition not included in the kit is the ribbon and gems.

I hope you will enjoy our new challenge blog and we look forward to visiting your blogs and seeing your wonderful creations.

Have a happy day hugs Linda x

Good luck with your designer slot on the creative cottage blog. You have created So many beautiful cards from one paper set, it's amazing. The sets are all beautiful which makes it hard to choose any one.
