Anchors Away! June ATC Swap Challenge


This month I have decided to switch things up abit.

There will be a SWAP + a CHALLENGE

Is that fun or what!!

You can do one or the other, or BOTH!

But, if you decide to do both, your challenge ATCs must be different from your swap ones.

The Swap

Info for swapping will be on the GG Facebook page!

I will pick your swap partners + you will have 10 days to make your cards + get them mailed.

The Challenge

1 winner will receive a $25.00 gift certificate generously donated from GECKO GALZ!!

So, here are your FREE Sheets

As always, you must use images from both sheets, but you can use embellishments from your own stash.

Have fun ladies!

Gecko Galz May Challenge-SECRET GARDEN

This month my Designer Challenge for Gecko Galz, was


This theme makes me think of a wonderful flower garden, with fairies, toadstools, a fairy frog, and lots of butterflies!

I created this Fairy Secret Garden Shrine using

Magical cutouts, moss, a wooden shrine, see thru vellum and a tealight

The back drop of the shrine is a design I printed in vellum from one of the fantasy digital  ATC sheets

I edged the shrine with real twigs

You really need to check out the GG Storybook Garden Craft Kit. Its MAGICAL!!

I also used my own stash of paper flowers + clear backed butterflies

A brick stencil + texture paste created the crumbling brick wall bits on the sides of the shrine

The 2nd project I made is a Journal Cover


I decorated the cover using images from the Storybook Garden Craft Kit, + the Dream Garden ATC Set

Lots of layers + 3d mount tape to create height + illusion

I then added some paper flowers, ribbon,  and wrought iron gate die cut
