MoxieFabWorld Colours

I saw the MoxieFabWorld Blog & it’s Tuesday Trigger: I Feel Pretty in Turquoise & Gold colour fun colour Challenge & I couldn’t resist.  Isn’t this such a pretty & inspiring photo from Decor Pad via House of Turquoise:

I had some Stampin’Up! Craft CS, a Designer Mat Pad Papers from Ancestry K & Company as well as my ‘new’ (new to me) toy of  Making Memories Grommet Kit & I went to town.  The stamps set is also from SU, called In the Spotlight, used the VersaMark Ink & Detail White EP.  The Twill tape is from my sewing stash & the Punch is the Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge Punch.

Family Journal!

Time for Paper Craft Planet’s 3D Tuesday Challenge!  This week’s 3D45 is from Kim Burmeister, with a wonderful idea for a family Journal!  She also has the very Green Idea to reuse card board & rescue it from the recycle bin.  Love it!

I must admit, when I saw her grommets she used, I really liked the look of it.  So I went out, equipped with my 40% off Michaels coupon & when looking for Grommets for the Crop-a-dile.  Couldn’t find any BUT picked up a Making Memories Grommet Kit.  BIG Grommets!  Easy to use.  Loud, when at the punch with a hammer, but easy to use.

Here’s the inside.  I covered up a fish cracker box, with mitred cornered DSP Manchester Paper, but left the card board inside, because I liked it.

Oh, & incase you’re wondering why you shouldn’t use traditional key rings, rather than those open & close latch key rings … two words … SCRATCHES & FRUSTRATION for putting it together!  What can I say, next time, I’ll know better.

Be sure to check out this week’s 3D45 Album to see what everyone comes up with!

This week’s Colour Q Challenge, #8, is a very festive one.  We have a couple of Birthdays here before Christmas, so normally leave our decorating until later in December, but I must admit, I’m humming Christmas tunes every now & again.  Here’s the inspiration photo from Arielle:
