Team Lou Southern Girls are back for 2018, show us your circles!

Well, hello there crafty people! Hope your Christmas and New Year has been fab. Here in NZ, we are enjoying a rather impressive Summer, and with school going back for the year next week, and heading back to work, it was fun to work on this very cool Southern Girls challenge a couple of weekends ago.

We have some new faces in the Southern Girls Design Team, and in Team Lou – so do make sure you go say hello to the team – they really do have lovely examples to inspire you with circular embellishments!

Yep, the Team Lou challenge is all about using circles on your project – circular images, sequins, enamel dots, brads – you name it – if it’s a circle, it fits the theme!

My layout was inspired by the fun Paper Issues group on Facebook, which issued a challenge just before I headed off to a crafty weekend with friends last week. It was a sketch which they called “the Kelly” after one of their lovely team members. But with a name like that, it was pretty obvious I had to take part!!

“The Kelly”

I had a lot of fun with the circular elements, with the doilies really inspiring me – and it was such an easy sketch to just use! Plus I got to go back and use a rather cute photo from ohhhh, a fair while ago!

You’ll see my circles in the doilies, the label stickers, and the enamel dots – not to mention the spots behind my title!

We have two fantastic sponsors for this circular challenge: Krafters Cart, a fab NZ store that has a huge selection of  crafting brands, and All Dressed Up – you’ll see a few examples of images used by some of the Team Lou girls.

We love to see any paper craft projects, so whether you love to make cards, scrap a layout, art journal, make mini albums, or do anything with pretty paper and fun embellishments – you are so welcome to join in our challenges. We’d love to see how you use our challenge to inspire your creations…. come join the fun.
