Time for a new challenge at S J Crafts and this month we have gone for the theme
Here's some ideas from Sarah to help you out. Did you see the olympic torch relay? - you could scrap the photos you took! Have your children had a school sports day? - Show us your sporty photos ... football, rugby, tennis, skipping or playing catch on the beach or in the garden!! The Olympics will be held in London so any photos of London will be suitable. You could use the colours or rings of the logo as a design element! Dig out your sporty rubber stamps for your cards.
And the prize this month for our winner is a 6 x 6 Pad (of the winners choice from the shop!)
This month instead of a card I've gone with an altered notebook & pen which I made for my youngest daughter Aimee who loves to sit a write. I bought a plain black notebook from Wilkinsons and transformed it with some Portabobello Road papers from Papermania. The borders are punched with a Fiskers punch. The ribbons are all from Crafty Ribbons, I had to colour the blue one with my promarker to match as it was a pale blue colour.
The image is from Simply Betty stamps and is called Gymnast Sally, I choose this image as Aimee love to do gymnastics at school and can't wait to watch the gymnasts on the Olympics. The image is coloured as usual with my promarkers, I'm really pleased with the way I managed to get the skirt to look transparent. Whilst I was cutting the image out I cut thought the ribbon that she is twirling so have stuck some real ribbon on instead. I added a pearl to her bow in her hair to hide the skull that was on the image.
I added Aimee's name with some alpha stickers which I originally coloured blue but decided after edging all the papers with gold stickles to glitter them up too. The little pen is one I bought as a pack of six I added a piece of matching paper around the top of the pen and tied a piece or ribbon to the clip.
