Holiday Challenge on Creative Craft World

Hi all

Today sees the start of a brand new challenge over on Creative Craft World. Mel set the challenge this time and she chose the theme of "HOLIDAY". Holiday for me is time with my lovely family and having FUN, the start of the summer holidays is less than 2 weeks away when the kids break up from school. Of course for those with kids it is a time to show some gratitude to the teachers who have put up with our little darlings for almost a year!

Yaseen has the most amazing teacher, Mrs Saeed and thankfully he is in her class again next year - she is one of those special people who wholeheartedly puts the children's education and happiness first. So, for her end of year gift I have made this stationery set, complete with greeting cards for different occasions, note cards, gift tags, note book, pen and stamps.

This week we have an amazing sponsor

Just look at the fab prize, 4 sets of Promarkers - Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter so a set for all seasons!!




Everything was made from 2 pieces of double sided 12 x 12 Echo Park papers and Bazill. It amazed me how much you could make with so little making it fab value for money. Loved these papers which are available over on Creative Craft World as they are so bright and summery.









The tutorial for the stationery box is on Splitcoast Stampers

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Sir Stampalot - Lazy Hazy Days of Summer

The Playdate Cafe has this amazin photo for colour inspiration - I think I used all the colours LOL!



Creative Card Crew - Die cuts (gift tags are die cuts and some elements on the cards)
Marks finest papers - punch it!

The Practical Scrappers - Embossing
