Crafts Galore Encore June 2019

May was a lovely month with  two long weekends, a half term holiday and some really nice weather. I used the month to relax, spend precious time with the family and have fun crafting. I hope you managed to do the same. June is going to be very busy with demos every weekend and lots of birthdays to celebrate. But first I'm starting with ...

.... A new challenge at
Thank you to everyone who joined in with May's challenge. The winners have been announced on the challenge blog. This is a month long challenge and you can enter up to three times. There is a full list of rules on the challenge blog.

Our theme every month is the popular
"Anything Goes"
and our sponsor this month is:
Vera Lane Studio
who are offering a prize of  two digi sets.

I have made a fun fold out card to show you today.

I started by sticking two 6"x 6" (15 x 15 cm) card blanks together. I used Distress Oxides Broken China and Lucky Clover to cover the first three panels of the card and Vintage Photo on the final one.

The die-cuts are from an old X-cut set and the sentiments are computer generated.

The cute animal images are all from Vera Lane's Farm Animals Set 2. The set comes complete with animal noise words too. I used a graphics programme to group the individual animals and my Copics to colour them in before fixing them with foam pads to the card base.

Now please visit the  Crafts Galore Encore challenge blog where you can see the wonderful projects and cards created by our talented team using Vera Lane Studio images. Grab some inspiration while you're there and enter your "Anything Goes" creations in the June challenge.
