A pinch and a punch for the first of another month......  crazzzyyyy!

Anyhoo lots of new challenges going up on the first day of a new month! And I would like to share two that I am on the design teams of..

The challenge for ARCHI-SCRAPS is such an easy peasy one and it is to.....
use lots of colors....  you can create cards, layouts, canvas, whatever you desire...   I choose to do some cards, can never have too many cards for those occasions that come up..

my cards..
 I have used really old papers and the chipboard pieces are all Scrapmatts..

And the challenge for KRAFT+ is another fantastic one...  and it is..

to be inspired by the sketch and use the colors and put it on a base of Kraft... The designers this month have excelled themselves and you need to check them out HERE!!!!!!!!  
And it does not need to be a beachy theme either.... however having said that, I was inspired to do a beachy layout..  from our holiday last year with our dogs at the beach...

some closer views..

Kaisercraft papers.. dies..

The best holiday..
I enjoyed creating for this one!!

Well another month is here, thanks so much for coming on by, and thank you to those who leave a comment, I do appreciate each one!! Have a great day!!

  1. Wow!! This is awesome Lizzy!! Love those cards .. so bright and cheery and so pretty!! The colours in this month's challenge are one of my fave mixes and you have certainly done them proud!! Love the photos .. looks like the dogs and your DD had a lot of fun .. and adore your take on the sketch. Stunning!!! Our weather is a lot cooler today .. am loving it!! Not loving the fact that it's February already .. how come time keeps slipping by so fast all of a sudden, or did it always do that and I've only just started to notice, LOL!! .. hugs xx

  2. Such pretty cards and loving the seaside page...just beautiful! Love the super details! ;-)
    Such a cute little doggy that has melted....sooo sweet! ;-) Luckily we had some rain the weekend and even though the days are hot...the nights are a little cooler! ;-)

  3. Hey are you? Loving bright summery colours on your gorgeous cards, a great collection of dies! Stunning page, what a great sketch, wish I had time to play!Love the close up pics of the background texture, great creating!

  4. ADORE your cards, they are so bright and happy...& the chippy is really nice in there. Just goes to show you don't need new stash to shine!! And your K+ LO is simply stunning....I think it sorta does lend itself to beachy pages, even tho you don't have to! Loving the anchors in there....really gorgeous take on the challenge. How does it feel being on the Other side of the Fence??!!! AND I guess it's still hot there.... it's cooled down here. For now. Sunday back up to 36, I think. I'm soooooo 'over it'.

  5. Wowwwwwwwwwwwww! These are gorgeous! I am LOVING the colors on your cards and your lo!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Well you are off and running in February with these gorgeous projects. Love the vibrant and cheery cards featuring the Scrapmatts goodies and your super cool beachy page. The Kaiser papers and marine accents are perfect for the "Coastal chic" theme. Oh, I could do with a day at the beach right now to get away from the heat. TFS

  7. Hard to believe the first month has flown by already! Your cards are so bright and colourful, beautiful. Your layout is beautiful, you do beachy themes so well . You have done a great job of the sketch, love the little huts and anchors and the photo theme, just lovely Lizzy
    A little cooler here today so far, but predicted to warm up again over the weekend .
