July's Challenge#37 Has Begun!

So, what is the July Challenge, I hear you ask!

Well, it is ......

I could have Danced all Night!
(Yep, you are all singing it now, even if it is just in your head - ear worm!)

with the TWIST to........ use RIBBONS!

How easy is that!!! No?? You don't find it easy?   Are you sure?? 
There really are a lot of things out there for you to use! 
Wait 'til you see what the DT came up with --- and the two Guest designers we have this month!

Talk about blowing my tiny mind!!!
They will give you lots and lots of inspiration.......

Our wonderful Sponsor for this month are the ladies at 

and they are offering a $15 voucher to the winner of the challenge!
WOW - that is amazing! Thanks ladies!

(If you go there now,there is a great special offer on Retail Only packs of goodies too)

Now, as mentioned before we have TWO Guest Designers this month:

Guest Designer - Andrea (Dreja) Janzon

What a gorgeous image Dreja has used - beautiful card - thanks Dreja! I can tell you, her cutting skills are much better than mine!

..and another angle....

 Thanks, Kim - I do love that dancer die cut, and the way you have used ribbon and embellished this is fabulous!

Such amazing inspiration already - see, you are already getting some good ideas!

Now, the DT have taken up this challenge and really run with it - as you will see!


Samara - using a stencil and journalling in her altered book......

Yep, definitely FUN! How wonderful is that image - full of light and movement

JANE - Using a die cut and sticker

Shake those hips baby!

Using a picture from Blue Cardigan Designs Impressionist Art Accent sheet 

I love Degas' dancers - I think this is one or if it isn't it reminds me of one - so romantic.

Wynn -
she was worried about the shadow from the window shutters but I think the whole card is just magical

Susan - using a pearl flourish created by our sponsor; I did dismantle it a little.....

Hilde - An interactive Scrapbook page: the top part has a pull out tag, and there is lots of bling of course!

I love the fact that Hilde has used a music sheet here with the song on it - and that wonderful image is so evocative.

Well, there you have it at this stage.......you have until the 1st August to enter this July challenge. Remember NO STAMPS are to be used in your creation.  It can be a card or a scrap page or a page from your multi-media art journal. As long as it is inspired by the theme - and we hope you will be encouraged enough to add the TWIST too - RIBBON!


  1. These all look wonderful ladies! I'm looking forward to working on this one.

  2. You ladies do amazing work. These are all terrific creations.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. The Design Team really appreciate it. Have fun with the challenge.
