Lisa made a mixed media canvas with pink shades. For the background she used Prima Marketing Nugget paste Art Extravagance with a stencil to make texture. For the embellishments she used also Prima Marketing Gamma Ray Moon Child Flowersand Prima Marketing Grungy Butterflies Finnabair Mechanicals. As final touch she used Prima Marketing Vintage Gold Art Alchemy Metallique Wax on butterfly, flowers and some details.
Andrea made some mini notebooks with girly phrases on the front. The sentiments and branches came from Inky Antics’ Crafty Comments, The Queen’s Quips and Branching Out stamp sets. She used Mermaid Markers for all the yummy color.
Anna-Karin was in the mood for some yellow and made a bike tag using pastel colors and pretty flowers. The bike was die cut with the Simon Says Stamp Classic Bicycle die and the background texture was done with Tim Holtz Floral stencil.
Barbara was inspired by soft and feminine colors! She used Tim Holtz Sizzix Tattered Butterfly, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Glorius bouquet, Tim Holtz stencil Flourish, Tim Holtz Sizzix Stacked tags, Ranger Distress markers and Idea-ology Paper Dolls.

Kath created a decorative panel using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Vines and Roses/Ornate and Lace with Distress Oxide Sprays and added Idea-ology Photobooth and Tim Holtz/Sizzix WildFlower Stems 1 and Heartfelt die-cuts
Macarena gave a third life to an old frame making it very girly and romantic. She used one of Tim Holtz Idea-ology Collage Frames and gave a texture with two of Tonic Expanding Mousses, Ranger Texture Paste Opaque Crackle and splattered it all with Stampendous Chunky White Embossimg Enamel.
Maura made an art journal spread in her Dina Wakely Media Journal about airship dreams using the Graphic 45 Imagine paper pad, Carabelle Studio Fanciful Dahlias stamps, and Simon Says Stamp Diamond Circles stencil.
Sandra went for the obvious color choice for her card, pink and purple, and she used Distress Ink Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves and Infusions Blackcurrant, Are You Cherise for that. She also used the sentiment of the Dog & Cat Dress-up stamp set of the new Simon Says Stamp Fresh Bloom release.
