This to That Tuesday Challenge #3

Good morning everyone! Happy, happy Tuesday! The weather is just wonderful here in Chicago land, not too hot and not too cool. Is it possible one of my most favorite times of the year is right around the corner? I get so inspired by the beautiful orange, red, green, and yellow colors in the Autumn/Fall season.

So, I guess you know what this means? Its Halloween time!!! Halloween is almost here and we’re starting our Halloween Challenges. Since I always start working on my Halloween decorations around the house mid September. I thought why not try something a little earlier this year. Therefore, I have decided The Digi Bistro Designers and I should do something that reflects a spooky Halloween for our (This to That) Tuesday Challenge this week.

Our challenge is to make a Halloween scrapbooking page using The Digi Bistro’s Halloween Town cutting files. No worries if you haven’t purchase this file. Although we would love to see what you create with The Digi Bistro SVG cutting files, use your Cricut cartridges or other cutting files that you already have. Our super talented Designers have created layouts using the Halloween Town SVG set to get your mojo flowing!

I hope our Designers have given you enough inspiration to go by. This is another simple challenge and we would love to see your fabulous creations! You will have a week to get your inspiration flowing and link up here on Cher’s Studio to win! Our prize this week is a chance to win The Digi Bistro’s Halloween Town cutting files. This contest will end September 6th, 2011 at 11:59PM CST. We look forward to your wonderful layouts.

The winners will receive gift certificates in the following amounts 1st Prize – $15, 2nd Prize - $10, and the 3rd Prize $5.

To get you started here are some awesome ideas by The Digi Bistro Design Team using SVG cut files from our store. For my first ever Side Step Card, I decided to use the BEACH BUM KIDS COLLECTION.

This to That Tuesday Challenge

Finally, I found the time to post our Tuesday (This to That) Challenge. This challenge was specially put together to introduce The Digi Bistro Design Team. Our First challenge was to design a card, scrapbook page layout or any other project using The Digi Bistro SVGs and these four colors, yellow, orange, green, and blue.

I will start here with my take on the Challenge. I decided to use the SIMPLY TWEET and BIRDS OF A FEATHER collections. Of course I had to use a bird for my card. Can you guess from the SVGs mentioned :- ) I hope you like what you see!

Next we have Corri over at Bug Lover Cards. Corri used The Digi Bistro's FLOWER FRENZY SVG set for her card. Very beautiful, I love the simplicity of this layout on Corri's Card. Don't for get to check out Corri's blog for more details.

Ok, moving right ahead, check out Laura's card from Making Pretty Things. Isn't this frog just the cutest, ever. What an excellent job Laura did jazzing this little fella up. Looks like he's ready for his date, lol! You can find this little frog over at The Digi Bistro in the HOPPY LITTLE FROGS SVG set!

Let's give the girl a hand. Lauren of Lauren's Creative absolutely hit this design right out of the ballpark! She really put some pretty touches on this little Puffer Fish. Don't you think her card is super cute? I do, this adorable little water baby can be found in the UNDER THE SEA SVG COLLECTION over at the Digi Bistro Store.

Next we have Sandra from 365 Days of Cricut. So far we have seen all card designs. Now check out this adorable beach theme layout Sandra made for her son's beach pictures. She used The Digi Bistro's BEACH BUM KIDS COLLECTION. Love it! Be sure to visit Sandra's blog, she has some really awesome crafts to share with you!

Last, Melanie from In love with a Bug created this adorable bird card. I really love the vintage looking background and the way she used the challenge colors to pull in the buttons. Lovely job Melanie. Go visit Melanie's blog to see more cute projects.

Okay, this marks the end of this very long post. The Digi Bistro designers did a wonderful job on this week's challenge. For our Challenges moving forward, every Tuesday we will have a (This to That Challenge). You will be able to join in on the fun and visit each Designer's blog for cool ideas and your chance to win prizes. Make sure you are following The Digi Bistro Designers for super fun Tuesdays and more news and updates!

I truly adore this beautiful card Corri put together. The colors are sweet in shades of pink and I love the flying little bird inside the cut shape. Corri used The Digi Bistro's "Birds of a Feather" collection. Very Cute Corri!
