Challenge #40 CASE Tracey

Hi everyone,
it's time for a new challenge! Thank you everyone who played along last fortnight. Don't forget to come back next Thursday to find out if you won or received Honours at taking TIME OUT!

Our challenge #40 is a CASE With Your Own Twist Challenge. Let's meet the designer we are CASEing: Tracey. Her blog is called In My Creative Opinion and it sure is filled with creative cards! Before looking at the wonderful card she created for us, let's read her greetings to friends of TIME OUT. 

Hello from Canada! I am so thrilled to be the Guest Designer this month at Time Out! I live in beautiful Muskoka, Ontario with my husband, two away at university children and a sweet Havanese named Sam. I have been creative all my life and have had an obsession with pretty papers since childhood. Now my obsession includes stamps and dies and different colouring mediums. You can find me on my blog In My Creative Opinion or up late at night creating in my craft room. I hope you are inspired to create something beautiful when you look at my card!

Thank you Tracey for providing us a beautiful card to CASE! Here it is:

Lots of ways to be inspired here: flowers, the color palette, vellum, white embossing, sponging... What a stunning card! Don't worry too much about the Own Twist: your Own Twist can be just a small personal touch you add to the project -a change of layout or colours for example. The main thing is you have fun CASEing Tracey! 

Our guest designer this time is Stempelfrida. She is a fabulous card maker from Germany and I'm sure you'll love her blog: click here and have a look!  Now let's get inspired of the cards Stempelfrida and our regular DT members have created.

Gorgeous cards, I'm sure you'll all agree. Now it's your turn to take TIME OUT and craft. Link up your project below before 5 pm GMT 30th of September and have fun creating, inspired by Tracey!

Congratulations Shery

A very Happy Monday,

As I am sure many of you know by now that our lovely DT member Shery is now a new Mummy. She gave birth to the happy and healthy 'Catherine' last week.

We at Time Out wanted to celebrate this with Shery and let her know how happy we are for her. What better way to do this than make a few cards.

Here is what we have for you:

Congratulations Shery from us all at Time Out xx

Ready to take some TIME OUT???

It is our theme challenge. The challenge is:

That means all you need to do is use some kind of maker on your project. We are not fussy-you can use pencils, chalks, copics, water colours...just make you mark!

We also have a twist....use Monochrome colours.

This week we are sponsored by Uniko and the winner will get a £15 gift voucher for their store. We are very pleased to say that some of the Uniko Design Team are playing along with us today-check out their cards below.

Our Guest Designer this week is the very talented Marika.

Marika is one of the most talented colouring crafters I know. Please check out her blog Me and Minime crafting

Don't forget this is the first challenge that our new DT members Jill and Joyce are joining us-please give them a very big welcome.
