Less is More #343


Hi there friends it's time to announce our latest challenge at Less is More and it's the turn of our recipe week. Here's the cue card and I can't wait to see what ideas you come up with for this one!




I've 2 cards for you this week but there's loads more inspiring and interesting creations by my fellow teamies over on the main blog HERE - We're also joined by our July winner; Viv of Daizy Mae's Crafty Blog as our guest designer so I hope you'll pop along and leave her some lovely comments this week. 


First up a little silly scene using 'Hang in There' by Stampendous. I bought this in a destash sale ages ago from Michelle Short and this is the first time it's been used! Just needed the right opportunity and my Brother in Law is celebrating a BIG birthday next month so I've got my mind set on sending him this one! The little rings are my 'real item' and they are recycled from some clothing. The images are coloured with Promarkers and there's a little wink of stella / glossy accents used for extra interest. 

It's an 'Anything Goes' week over at Addicted to Stamps and More this week so I'm heading over there with this Monkey card! 




So simple with this one and I never even knew I possessed a 'Sheep' shaped button until I went searching through that 'Must Keep for a Rainy Day' box. I cut the loop off the back that you'd sew through and added a 'thank' sentiment from Winnie & Walter (another destash item from the lovely Michelle). The kraft panel was die-cut with an inside out diagonal stitched rectangle die from MFT Die-Namics and to finish a little piece of hemp cord. 

I hope you'll feel inspired to play along and have some fun with this one. 

Thanks for calling by and I'll be back soon!

  6. These are sooo cute, Sarah. And you got to use some of your destashed buys too. So creative to use rings as your real object on your monkey card. Your BIL is going to love it. And wow to your ewe card. I would have never guessed that was a button. Fabulous ideas. Enjoy your weekend and have a wonderful week. 😊 Trina xx
