More Flower Show

Hello Everyone

Well the weather has been extremely hot here in the South East of England and we are just not used to it!  I love a bit of summer and sunshine but can't cope when the heat gets up into the late 20s and 30s!  Clearly I am never happy but hope you are wherever you are :).

This is a reminder about our July Challenge 'Flower Show' and you have just over a week to get your entries in as it closes at midnight on the 31st July.  I also have some more gorgeous ideas from the Design Team.

'Box Frame' by Wendy Gay

This stunning box frame created by Wendy uses papers and embellishments from the Prima 'Engraver' range together with Walnut Stain Distress Ink, Glossy Accents (used on the flower stem) and Yorkshire Dales Mega Flake with FlitterGlu.  Full details can be found on Wendy's Blog.

'Our Flower Show' by Martina Gardner

Martina has used the beautiful new papers from Echo Park's 'Beautiful Life' range to proudly showcase her hanging baskets photo.  Flowers abound in this layout from the photo itself to floral papers and diecut flowers and even a trellis complete with climbing roses - lovely detail.

'Bloomin Great' Card by Tracy Harris

This sweetly pretty card uses a few different stamp sets.  The sentiment is from the 'Blooming Great' Stamp set, the flowers from the 'Clockwork' Stamp Set and the swirl from the 'Wild Meadow' Stamp Set, all by IndigoBlu.

'Wisley in Bloom' by Nicky Parry

This beautiful double-page layout by Nicky is another profusion of flowers, mainly, this time, from the photos.  Nicky has also used the beautiful new Echo Park range 'Beautiful Life' and used the reverse of 'Stripes' paper which as you can see is a more subtle stripe.  Many of the embellishments are from the Beautiful Life range and the washi tape is from the October Afternoon 'Woodland Park' range.

As you can see, there is a broad range of ideas and the 'Flower Show' theme really lends itself to an open interpretation.  Full details of how to enter can be found here.

I hope you have a great rest of your week and Happy Crafting!
