Just Us Girls #580 - Color Week

Hello friends!  It's Lisa here this week with our Color Week challenge.  I've chosen coral, yellow and raspberry.  I've correlated these colors to the Distress colors of abandoned coral, squeezed lemonade, and picked raspberry, however you can use any colors close to these.

We start off with our April guest.

And now let's see designs from the Just Us Girls team.












  • Just a reminder: If you win Chic of the Week in any of our April challenges, you are in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of June. 
  • How to play: Please copy and use our graphic on your post. You need to upload your new project [no back dating please] for this week's challenge to your online blog or to a public photo gallery. 
  • Leave a link that goes directly to your project in the Linky Tools form at the bottom of this post. [Please limit your entries to 3]. 
  • Deadline to be considered for the "Chic of the Week" is 9:00 PM EST on Thursday, April 22. 
  • The Linky Tools form will close at that time. 
  • Our "Chic of the Week", will be announced the following Friday morning. 
Thanks for playing along. We can't wait to see what you create for Just Us Girls!

Chic of the Week #579

 Hello,

Once again, a lovely array of cards in the gallery. Thank you so much for embracing the 'use more than one stencil' trend with creativity and enthusiasm. Again, you've made selecting a winner a challenge...but the task must be done.

Our Chic of the Week is:  Sherri Thacker


I can picture myself in that jazzy convertible, zipping along the gravel roads and 
enjoying the sunshine, to deliver balloons! 
Fabulous stenciling for a fabulous scene! 

Congratulations Sherri!  Be sure to email me at cmayne at shaw dot ca for your COW badge.

Come back tomorrow for a brand new Color Challenge hosted by Lisa!

Just Us Girls Challenge #579 - Trend Week

 Happy Saturday,

Carol here, warmly welcoming you to Just Us Girls Challenge #579 where, I'm inviting you to use more than 1 stencil on your cards/projects. You can combine your stencils in any fashion you choose, be they separate stencils or the trendy layering stencils we're seeing populate the crafting universe. Whatever you choose: have fun!


Once again, we're delighted to have Claire guest designing with us. Talk about a cool card!


Check out the wonderful cards created by the team:





So much inspiration here - and if you're like me, you've likely added stencils/techniques to your wish and 'must try' lists!

A quick note: Layering stencils, while certainly welcome, are NOT required for this challenge! Two or more stencils of ANY style are perfectly fine!  

Just a reminder: 
If you win Chic of the Week in any of our April challenges, you are in the running to be chosen as our Guest Designer for the month of June.
