Beck - Heidi Swapp - Cards, Cards, Cards!

Well good morning to you!  Not sure what the weather's like where you are, but it seems to be turning to the south here, brrrrr.  I wish the weather would make it's mind up!

Righto, back to the task at hand.  Did you know that there are only 34 sleeps until Christmas?  Woohoo!  I love Christmas :)  Oops, distracted again!

Now, I have had a play this week with a lovely Christmas range from our Centre Stage artist, Heidi Swapp, called Believe.  It's just gorgeous.  

I made a few very simple cards, with a little bit of layering and sewing (of course!).  One of the papers comes with cute little 3x4" cards printed on it, just perfect for an instant Chrissy card...

I'm just loving that chalkboard look that's all the rage at the moment :)

Continuing on the card theme, I also had a play with Heidi's Sugar-Chic range.

I love love LOVE this range!  Very 'me' colours.  So pretty and girly, perfect for cards, or layouts, or off the page, or ANYTHING! Gee, can you tell I like this one?!  Ha ha ha!

I made two Centre Step cards (this is one of my all time favourite card styles)...

...and a more simple and straight forward 6x6" card, using some hand cut pennant flags, more sewing, and the cute new Kaiser dymo alphas...

So as you can see, this week it's been all about the card making!  Don't forget to enter the competitions for Centre Stage, and this month's challenges.  Prizes, ladies, prizes!


November Challenge: Heidi Swapp and Colour Fun!
The brand of the month is Heidi Swapp. We invite you to enter anything you've created with any Heidi Swappproducts. It doesn't matter if they are current or older ranges - or how much or how little you use. We will be showcasing a new range of products each week during the month of November, so there's plenty of time to buy some if you haven't already got hooked!
The theme of the month is ... Colour Fun. This sums up Heidi's approach to crafting! Submit any project that has at least 4 colours. Head to Heidi's blog to see how she uses colour on her projects.

The Sketch of the month has been provided by Heidi Swapp. Use it as the basis for a layout/card/project and enter it in the challenge. There are so many ways to win - so be sure to get your entries in by midnight Friday 29th November.

Challenge PrizesWe have 3 challenge prizes this month - kindly donated from Heidi Swapp. Use either Heidi Swapp products, the sketch or the theme for your entries. There will be an Overall Challenge Winner, First Time Entrant and Sketch Winner  -  so make sure you submit your projects to us before the deadline of November 29th. We have aCompetition Gallery where you can upload your entries directly and include a description and blog link. We will need to approve them - so don't be concerned if you don't see your entry immediately. You can enter THREE projects per month.

Well, that's about enough waffle from me today.  Not sure what's in store for the weekend, more scrapping me thinks.  Friday 29th November is the Kaiser showcase at the shop, you should definitely come along and check out what's being released over the next 3 months, there are some pretty awesome ranges.  I will be at the store that night, and have some creating to do before then to show off the new ranges to you all!  If you come along, please say 'Hi' and introduce yourself, I'd love to meet you :)

Toodles, Beck x
