PP394 - A Clean-and-Simple Challenge from Laurie

Hi everyone! Laurie here and I am your hostess for the Clean and Simple BLOOMS challenge this week. I chose blooms as I am SO anxious for all the flowers to start blooming here up north. My lilly of the valley are just about ready for me to pick a small bouquet. I love how they smell! I can't wait to see all of the beautiful blooms on your creations.

Remember in addition to the theme of "blooms", this week is a Clean-and-Simple (CAS) challenge!  What do we mean by CAS?
  • Minimal layers and embellishments
  • Plenty of open space, aka "white" space
  • Simple and uncluttered


    Challenge Rules:
    1. Create a NEW paper-craft project specifically for this challenge.
    2. Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us.
    3. Please provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge entry.
    4. Please link your card to no more than four challenges, TOTAL. Entries linked to more than 4 challenges, including ours, will be deleted without notification.
    5. Have fun!

    PP391 Challenge Winners

    Hi everyone! TicTacToe always brings a huge amount of variety to the gallery and this week is no exception - your entries were so varied and I've loved visiting you all! So many bright florals, wonderful masculine inspiration and lots more besides. But before we get to my choice for Headliner, let's see what caught the eye of the Design Team this week.




    And now for our Headliner:




    Mugdha - Craftomania

    Mugdha's red and yellow quilled flower is so bright and cheery and shows lots of skill. I love the bold, green leaves and that wonderful ombre watercolour background that adds even more visual interest, whilst allowing the florals to take centre stage. Paired with the crisp white background this card really is so fresh and fabulously floral - congratulations Mugdha on being my headliner this week!

    Thank you again to everyone for playing along with us.  Congratulations to all our winners, please pick up your badges here.  Come back tomorrow for a pretty Theme Challenge from Nance!
