July Challenge!

Can you believe we are now officially past the halfway point of the year? When did that happen? Eeeeeekkkkk!!!

Anyway, we are here to brighten your day with a brand new challenge for the month of July, and this month it has been put together by our very own Design Team member Kylie Tout...

You can choose to interpret this however you wish, as long as we can clearly see handwriting featured on your layout. (Hidden journalling or only a few words will not count!) In addition, don't forget to include at least one handmade embellishment somewhere on your creation.

This month, we are also very fortunate that Kylie's own store Scrapping Clearly, will be sponsoring our challenge!

For those who are in the vicinity of Gundagai NSW, you are lucky enough to be able to visit Scrapping Clearly to shop or attend classes in person. (You will find the store in the main street.) For those who are further afield, you will be pleased to know that Kylie also has a fantastic online store. The shop boasts an enormous range of Heidi Swapp products - including the latest HS mixed media products (stencils, modelling pastes, screen print inks, rub on foil). In addition, there is an equally impressive range from many other popular manufacturers, and certainly something to please every kind of scrapper.

You will find the Scrapping Clearly store here:
