Challenge #154 - Bicycles

Summertime is in full swing and one thing we do around here is get out our bikes!  That's my challenge for you this time!

Challenge #154 - BICYCLES

I've meant to scrap this picture for years. This is my daughter trying out her very first bicycle:



And now some inspiration from our Paper Girls:


Karrie
I've had this "Bicycle for 2" transparency for a long time and never used the Eiffel tower stencil.
 Perfect time to make some home d├ęcor!

I used an older stamp and some of my favorite retired papers to create a pair of tags great for any upcoming occasion. 


Using the Story Teller collection by Crate Paper to document a bike ride my daughter and I took.

Challenge #153 - Woodland Creatures


Hello crafters...and hello June!
This is Brittany and I'm so excited to host our Paper Girls challenge these next couple weeks:
Woodland Creatures. 

We spend a lot of time in the summer playing out in the woods where I live and we see a lot of beautiful wildlife, which inspired this challenge. I'd like to see a project where a creature from the outdoors, most particularly a woodland creature, has inspired your work. I can't wait to see your projects! You have until Saturday, June 16th (11:55pm MST) to link your project to this post (below).

Here are two cards I created that were inspired by the critters I've seen in the woods.
This first card has more of an Autumn feel, but I absolutely love this little deer image from Greeting Farm stamps (Forest Friends - now retired).

 And with the arrival of a new baby for one of my dear friends, I couldn't resist creating this sweet little scene with my Fawn Lawn stamps (Mom + Me).

Here are the beautiful creations from our amazing design team:

Michele
I found some woodland creatures in my stash from October Afternoon.


Simple cards with these adorable felt creatures I found.



This is my sweet granddaughter Taylor with her special Woodland Creature from preschool. It was her turn to look after him over the weekend.

I started by using my Distress Inks and a pair of Neat and Tangled stencils. I then added a cute set of woodland creatures from the Into the Woods Lawn Fawn stamps, colored with Dual Brush Pens by Tombow. The sentiments were from the set, and were perfect for a hello card.
