This month we decided it was time for a sketch - and thanks to the Auber-talented Amanda Hartmann, she has designed this fabulous sketch for us to use!
Keep popping in to see the Creative Team Samples that I will be adding to this post during the next week or so.
First up, we have the layout that Sandra has created. I totally love how she has used the NEW Charms Creations Terrific Tabs & Diamonds inspired by the sketch!
"Hi everyone, welcome to the first day of September, but most importantly the first day of spring - yay - bye bye winter.
There are some awesome new embellishments available in the big cartel shop, follow this link to find them!
For the challenge, I chose to use the diamonds, as the ones I had worked perfectly for the colours I was working with, but you could use any Charms embellishment for this challenge, they will all work. If you would like to see more about my layout, follow this link!
I hope you have a go at this challenge. Happy scrapping!"

It has been a LONG day today, and I have been meaning to share a layout created by our lovely Guest Designer Rachel Dutko - this is a layout she created Kraft+ June Challenge - you can see the details over on her blog HERE
I just love how she uses a mixture of Charms Creations Embellishments on her page...
Rachel has used Charms Creations Animal Print Embellishments...
You may recognise these from Belinda's last share - here's HOW she altered her *DIY* heavenly heart...
Step 1: I wanted my heart to coordinate with my background so after I had applied Distress Stains to my page I placed the heart face down onto it to soak up the excess colour. I sprayed it with a little water to make the colours blend a little more.
Step 2:And here is the fun part. I applied Prima 3D Gloss Gel Transparent onto the heart using a paintbrush (an old one). Then I laid some Typo tissue paper over the top and gave it another good coat of the 3D Gloss Gel. Once it had dried completely, I used a wet paint brush to draw around the heart so that I could easily tear the excess tissue paper away.
Here's the close-up of the finished 'experiment'. I love the way it turned out. I can't wait to try it again with another DIY embellishment."
I so need to give this a go! I am totally loving the ideas the Creative Team have come up with so far, how about you? Have you tried any of the techniques? PLEASE SHARE if you do!
Today it's Sandra's turn to share with us a *DIY* idea using the Charms Creations *DIY* XO's...
"Hi everyone, it's my turn to share today. I am sharing one of my layouts using DIY's, and you may have noticed the sneaky in the Ideas page banner above. I did this layout for a challenge at Scrapping Clearly last month.
The DIY's worked perfectly for my layout - I chose the X and O, and I stitched backwards and forwards on them, to create something really unique - that is the beauty of the DIY embellies.
These embellies can be found in the shop by following this link:
Hello Everyone! Well today was *MEANT* to be my SHARE day, and boy I didn't time that well did I??? I have been busy with orders, and then I had the drama of a flat tyre this morning so have been slightly delayed in what I had planned!
SO, I have asked the lovely Amanda Hartmann if I could share a layout she recently created using one of the
BRAND SPANKING NEW Terrific Tabs
& an X or is it a +PLUS+ Sign?
Anyway, I just love this page! She has used the latest paper from A Piece of Cake Designs kit and they match perfectly with the Charms Creations Embellishments of course...
Today Katie's sharing with us - she has come up with YET ANOTHER way to alter the DIY's! I have the cleverest Creative Team!
OK, afternoon crazy time is over and dinner is done. Now I can do some things for me! Yay! So I am back to share my full page which was created for the current WW1 challenge, a gorgeous custard yellow, although mine is a bit more golden.
So, did you figure out how I DIYed the star? I used liquid pearls to draw stars inside the shape. It is a great way to get some dimension and colour and don't forget that little bit of pearl too!
