Here's some fabulous ideas from our DT!

I loved this month's challenge. I don't usually put pictures on my cards, but I was going to take this challenge on. I made my card just a bit bigger than I usually would, so as to fit the two photos of my kids. The card has a Chevron pattern in it, I used the I-Top to create holly berries and then hand cut the title out for one of my embellishments.

Imaginisce Supplies:
Merry & Bright Patterned Papers, I-Top, 16 mm I-Top Brad Daddies and 16mm Brad Punch

My dad loves to play golf and since his birthday is just around the corner I wanted to create a card for him with his favorite hobby as the focus.
I went to the internet and searched for 'golf photos'...I then saved the two stock pictures and spliced them together to form a 4x6 photo. The large die cut was just the right size in keeping with the scale of the photo! I know that he will love it :)

Supplies: Hello Cupcake: Birthday Hooray! 12x12 Paper, Cheers! 12x12 Paper, Wish Big 12x12 Paper, Wish Come True Die Cuts; Colored Foam Tape - White; Misc: Baker's Twine and brads.

My little guy turns five next month. I loved this challenge because it gave me a chance to create a card with a photo from his first birthday and a recent photo. I used papers from Monster Mash and Hello Cupcake. For a bit of fun, I added some Glam Rocks to the big ol' cupcake taken from a Sticker Stacker.

Patterned Paper: Hello Cupcake!, Monster Mash Collections (Imaginisce); Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White (Stampin' Up!); Stickers: Surprise! Sticker Stacker (Imaginisce); Accents: Glam Rocks (Imaginisce), brads (generic); Tools: i-Rock (Imaginisce); Dies: Top Note (Sizzix)

This hanging wall art is made using a single sheet of acrylic from a mini album. What an easy way to get into the holiday spirit!

Supply List: Imaginisce Christmas Cheer pattern paper, die cuts, stickers; Imaginisce Clicut, ribbon, white gel pen, Silhouette Cameo and chevron die cut.

Rhonda Van Ginkel

The chevron background was cut using my Silhouette. I had a nice amount "white space" in the upper portion of my photo. For my 2nd photo, I created a copy of just the water portion and using PicMonkey, added my journaling on top of the water, saved and printed. I then cut the photo journaling into strips.

Supplies: Makin' Waves papers (2 pattern), Makin' Waves die cuts (2), Foam Tape by Imaginisce, White and Blue Cardstock by AC, Spiced Marmalade distress Ink, Silhouette, Sewing Machine and Thread


So ... are you up for the challenge??
