Tara's Rock Star Picks!

Thank you all who played along with our challenge this week! As always, it's so much fun to check our your projects and see all the cool and clever ways you crafty folks user the colours, themes and inspiration photos!


I love Vicki's fun and funky baby card - that gradient chevron panel is simply stunning, and what a sweet little teddy bear imagine! Wonderful and unique baby card. Congrats, Vicki!



Jo's super sweet sailboat card caught my eye! The colours are so beautiful soft and sweet, and I love the layout. I love all the fun textures and patterns. Congrats, Jo!


I love that Hayley used a stamp set that you wuoldn't normally associate to a baby card - and she pulled it off beautifully! The sweet little button is the perfect embellishment. Congrats, hayley!


Patti's happy little teddy bear and super fun bunting make one darling baby card! The festive starts in the background are a great touch! Congrats, Patti!

Thank you again to everyone who played along with us.. We will see you all back here again tomorrow for a fun new Challenge.

Rock Star Pick for FM193!

All I can say is WOW!! you all blew me away with your entries this week!  I had so much fun checking out each of your blogs.  All of the beautiful flowers put a smile on my face as well as seeing the triple layer technique used in so many fun ways!  Let me tell you I had a hard time choosing just one of you for a rock star since there was a lot of rockin' going on with this challenge!  

This week's rock star is...

Julie's sympathy card is absolutely stunning!  I love the vintage look, the beautifully colored flowers and the way she used the triple layered technique with the added flowing flowers.  Congrats, Julie! ~ Sara

Thank you again to everyone who played along with us.. We will see you all back here tomorrow for a fun New Challenge!

Hi, Everyone!  Sara here to welcome you to another Friday Mashup challenge.   Let's make a card or project using the Triple Layer Technique.  You can do it the basic way like the video below shows, or you can do smaller pieces here and there on your card with the technique too.
