July Scrapbook Boutique Blog Hop and Challenge

Welcome once again to Scrapbook Boutique's monthly challenge and blog hop.  You should have arrived here from Angela's amazing blog but if you didn't and want to start at the beginning, just click on the SBB blog link above and start again!  

Here is July's Moodboard Inspiration picture

We'd love you to join in with us this month!  There are two ways you can do this - you can comment on each blog in the hop, ending with the SBB blog, or you can create a project (either a card, scrapbook layout or off the page project) inspired by this moodboard.  Of course you can do both for a chance to win both prizes!  Please check out the rules of entry, and the prizes at the Scrapbook Boutique Blog and note that this challenge is open to Australian  and New Zealand residents.

From the moodboard, I was inspired by the wintry tree in the top left and the keyboard letters, and chose to make an early Christmas card in white tones, but with touches of pink and blue as in the inspiration pic.  I've also used a little die I've owned for ages, which gave me the tiny tiles for my letters - it is called Clever Typepad and is by Poppystamps.  The letters are rub ons from my stash.

My background uses the holly branch by Kaisercraft Merry Christmas stamp and die set, which I've white heat embossed and sponged with the palest blue and pink.  I stamped another holly branch onto vellum, and fussy cut it out, to add to my banner.  The square frame adds a bit of 'fancy' but any square die or simply cut the panel to size would be fine.  My card base is a 14cm square card in pale grey.

Now you should hop on over to Linda's blog to find out what she has created to inspire you!

Thanks for visiting and happy crafting!
