Final week of Summer Sunshine

... our August Summer Sunshine Challenge, that is! We hope there will continue to be some glorious sunny days into September as well :) I'm back with a bit more inspiration for you- we've been loving all the projects featuring yellow & encourage you to play along if you haven't already!

First up is a layout by Julie.  She's used some new Echo Park papers and some very old photos :)  The yellow butterflies are wooden ones that she's inked up and stamped a black pattern on- pretty cool!
...and here's a card by me (Tara).  Details will be up on the Creative Accents blog today!

Remember, you've got just one more week to join us and show us your summer sunshine- all the details are on this post.

more August Inspiration!

You know, we've got a tiny little design team here at Creative Accents but I have to say that we are SO BLESSED to have such a talented team of ladies making samples for us! Customers are constantly commenting on how much they enjoy the inspiration they find in our store & it brings such a smile to my face to hear that and to watch the girls come up with such amazing projects each month! Love you ladies!

I was expecting summer samples to be fairly 'light' this year, but these girls are bringing it and I have three more great samples to share with you today!

You can see more details on Sarah's layout on her blog.

Roxy actually made this layout for our July challenge, but I didn't get around to sharing it with you (it just arrived in the store last week) and it's kinda perfect for this month's challenge as well :)

Janet made another pretty card for us as well! 

I have more projects lined up to share with you next week already as well... so check back then!  Remember, you've got until the end of the month to join us- all the details are on this post :)

Summer Sunshine Inspiration

I'm back with some more inspiration for our August Summer Sunshine Challenge!  We can't wait to see what you create when you play along with us!

Leslea created this fun layout featuring a favourite photo of her daughter from a holiday trip this summer:

Roxy created a series of fabulous SMASH book pages- here's one of them, you'll have to check out the rest on her blog!

We hope you'll play along!  You can create any summer inspired project that features the colour yellow for this challenge!  See full details (and link up) on this post.

August Challenge: Summer Sunshine

It's a new month, which means we have a great new challenge for you here at the Seriously Creative Challenge blog!
 Our challenge to you for the month of August is SUMMER SUNSHINE: Create a summery project that features the colour YELLOW on it somewhere!  You've got the whole month to play along, so channel the Summer Sunshine and make something creative this August!

Here's a bit of inspiration to get you kick started...

Tara made this Simple Summer Card Set in 3 different colour palettes, each featuring a bold punch of yellow!  We're super excited to share with you that this project is featured on Ranger's website this month with step-by-step instructions & photos!  Check it out!

Seriously Creative DT member, Sarah, made this one a little bit ago, but the splash of yellow makes it a great sample for this challenge!  I look forward to seeing what else she creates this month, but couldn't help but share this for now :)

Janet made this sweet card that celebrates the summer sunshine!  There's a gorgeous shimmer on this card and a fun removable tag in the front 'pocket'.  

UPDATE: This month's prize will be a surprise assortment of yellow 6x6 papers, a $5 certificate for our online store and a set of yellow gelatos!  Fun fun!

Hope you'll join us this August!
