Challenge #88

Hi All,

Ready to take some TIME OUT and get crafty with us?

We hope we can inspire you with our new 'Inspired by Words' challenge. The words this week come from the Children's novel 'Twits' by Roald Dahl:

'If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely' 

You can use any of these words or the whole phrase to inspire you. You might want to go with 'shine' or 'sunbeams' as many of you are seeing that this time of year. Or why not remind someone they 'look lovely'....perhaps send someone 'good thoughts'. So many possibilities with this one quote!

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is the very creative Toni.
Her blog Frankie Helps Craft is a delight to visit. Take some Time Out and pop over there and have a browse. We guarantee you will love what you see. We are so happy Toni is joining us for this challenge.

Let's see what Toni and the DT have created, inspired by our phrase:

We hope these inspire you to take some TIME OUT and get crafty.
You have until 5pm BST on Wednesday 2nd August to join us.
Enjoy you TIME OUT!

Challenge #87 CASE With Your Own Twist

Hello friends of TIME OUT!

We have a new challenge for you and this time it's one of our CASE With Your Own Twist Challenges. We are CASEing (CASE = Copy and Share Everything) a super fun card by Cornelia of Stempel Spass. The winner of this challenge (chosen by our design team) will receive a $15 gift voucher from  Happy Little Stampers.

Before having a look at her card, let's read Cornelia's greetings to TIME OUT players! 

My name is Cornelia – otherwise known as fun stamping, which translates into Stempel Spass – the name of my blog. I am originally from Germany, hence my blog name, which just means fun stamping. For the last 20 years I have been living in New Jersey with my husband and our younger son. Our daughter right now lives in Germany and is doing her masters degree. I am working full time and like to spend my evenings creating cards. I have been totally hooked now for about four and 1/2 years. I mainly do CAS cards, but occasionally I like to experiment with other styles. Besides card making I enjoy photography, baking, cooking, hiking, biking, reading, classical and all sorts of ethnic music. In addition, I love to travel! Somehow my days are always too short...

Great to learn more about you Cornelia! 

Here's the card we are CASEing:

How fun is that?!? And what a great sentiment. You could be inspired by Cornelia's layout, colors, the theme of the card, the bird, the background stamp... Many possibilities! Remember we allow "own twists" -the main thing is that Cornelia's card inspires you and you have fun creating! You can read more about Cornelia's card in her blog HERE.

Our guest designer this time is the wonderful Pooja from Reusing, Cards and Quilling. She has a very personal, beautiful card making style and her GD card is no exception! We'd love you to visit her blog and leave some comment love. 

Let's have a look at the inspiration cards now!

Guest Designer

Now it's your turn to take TIME OUT and craft! This challenge runs until 5 pm BST, 19th of July. Come back next week for the winners of our previous challenge on Wednesday + more inspiration for this challenge by the other half of our design team on Thursday.
