July Peeps Challenge!

Okey Dokey Peeps! I'm all ready here ... :0)

I wanted to share a new place that came across my radar screen lately - everyone out there already know about Cath Kidston? I recently had the fun of going into a store and really didn't want to leave!

How much fun are fabrics like these? Or how about this batch? Who wouldn't like to add a couple of mugs like these to the kitchen? And I was pretty sure that I *needed* a new bag urgently!

Unfortunately they haven't employed me as their new marketing manager (in case you're wondering), but I came away with a heaping dose of patterns and colours in my head!

July Challenge Deet

Is to take some inspiration from any picture or combination of pictures from the site ... but if you use co-ordinating scraps (those lonely little bits) of patterned paper from your stash and incorporate a flower - you get extra points in my book!

July Challenge

What do you think? Ready to play?

I hope you're a tad inspired and I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with!!

Have a good one :0)!



Stamps: Twinkle, Turning a New Leaf, Fillable Frames, Signature Greetings (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: Green Tea Leaves (Papertrey Ink), Thrift Store (October Afternoon)
Dies - Fillable Frames (Papertrey), Scalloped Rolled Rose (My Favourite Things)

P.S. In case you're wondering ... my inspiration came from their magazine cover (I had to get one!) between the umbrella on that and the colour of this dress ... :0)

'ello lovely stranger! I'm always so happy when I see a post from you in my reader :D
What a fab challenge - I love Cath Kidtson so I think I can easily find some inspiration to play along!
Your card, as always, has my jaw hitting the keyboard again. Love how you rock that melon berry!

Nerina, this is so lovely! I'd never heard of Cath Kidston, but now I want to spend the afternoon learning how to make lovely vintage patterned aprons out of that fabric. Thanks for the inspiration.

Terri said...

Very pretty. I had not heard of Cath Kidston before either but after seeing her prints I am totally inspired now. Thanks for a great challenge.

Absolutely beautiful! I love orange and your card is wonderful with this color all over it. I have never heard of Cath Kidston and will be searching soon to find out all the hubbub she is creating.
