Design Team Favourites for October
These favourites are listed in the numerical order.

Andrée Crowe #30 Leslie Turner

A wonderful winter project. This is a gorgeous junk journal made with beautiful vintage inspired papers. Lovely layouts, some with tag pockets, and all finished with fabulous snowflake embellishments.

 Jackie Trinder chose #31 Leslie Turner

I love this decorated cube. Each side is unique and beautiful.

 Kelly Parker chose #60 Rachelle Oltean

Christmas tag I love pinecones and berries plus its a shaker!

 Beverly Cole chose # 70 Rachelle Oltean

Great use of the digital, cropping it before printing. Lush colors and the background adds to the mood.

 Kelly Parker chose #74 Marie Bingaman

 Loved her color and of course, who doesn't love Santa and snowmen!

 Carole Jones chose #86 Judy V

Judy made a gorgeous memory tray, honouring her mum and her mum's two sisters. The black and white photographs are beautiful and are lightly tinted to match the fabulous, floral design paper which was decoupaged to add dimension. Die cut corners and pearls add further elegance to this vintage style tray. I can see this becoming a treasured keep sake!

 Tracey Mowbray chose #110 Chris

So cute love the layout & bright Christmas colours.

  Dagmara Gorczyńska chose #138 Nicola Gold

I love monochrome autumn colors. A wonderfully colored stamp!

 Danuta Brzezińska chose #149 Fit Kitty

I like the idea for a notebook, the use of tracing paper and beautiful cats. I like everything about this project.

 

Stay Safe and Well in these troubled times. 

The new challenge starts tomorrow.
