Lulupu Challenge #14 - Colour Crush!!

Good morning lovelies!!

This is Nikita and I am here to announce another challenge. By the way, we just realised that this is Challenge #14 which means Lulupu has completed one full year of challenges and we are starting all over  again!! So we would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for playing along. It has been fun! :D :D

Now for this month's challenge..

Challenge #14 - Colour Crush
Twist - Use Dies

*Either regular dies or create using Electronic Die Cutting Machine only*

Please note ready to use (factory made) dies will not be accepted 

This month, we are giving you a colour palette, and we decided what colour palette would be better than our Lulupu logo? First of all, it is adorable!!! Secondly, it is the cutest colours that can be easily used in our projects; so we decided to go for it. Here's the palette. :)

Here's a list of things to keep in mind for your entry to Qualify for our Challenge

Challenge #14 - Qualification Guidelines
1. Create a Card OR Layout, whatever you are comfortable with.
2. Use colours from the palette provided above. Now we know that there is a possibility that you may not find the exact shades. So a shade here and there should be okay. But do not deviate from the palette. Use of Neutral colours like white, black, beige, brown, grey, etc. is allowed. :0
3. Using Dies is a must. You may choose just one die, or combine two or three dies; it's perfectly fine. :)

Simple, eh?

And now, I have something that will floor you!!! This is what the winner of our challenge will get!

This awesome die - Whimsy Circle, from Memory Box.

And speaking of Memory Box Dies, have you seen the amazing range of dies available at the Lulupu Store?? If you haven't, yet, you can check it out here. I have purchased quite a few (because I tend to go overboard) and loved them all. The designs are sooo cute and make your projects look prettier. Read on and you'll be able to see how. :)

So? Are you ready to see what I came up with?? Okay.. here it is..

I decided to do a layout because it had been long since I made one. Actually, I have made Layouts only for Lulupu Challenges and I am really lagging behind with my pre-wedding scrapbook. It's been almost 5 months post-wedding and I had just two pages done. So I said to myself, let's just do this layout. :P :P And here's what I made.


I decided to document my pre-wedding photo shoot that happened at one of the Taj Safari Resorts in Madhya Pradesh - Baghvan, located in Pench National Park. The pictures were so great, that I actually wasn't left with much choice :P

I used Creme fabric tape on the top and bottom edges of the layout.

This is the Fairytale Flower Border Die from Memory box (available at Lulupu.) I used distress inks to colour it - Barn Door, Peeled Paint,  Mustard Seed and Vintage Photo..

I used American Craft Thickers and Memory Box Button Die here..

And did a little bit of journaling. Obviously :)

Here's the list of products used:

I hope you liked it and will play along. It's a fairly easy challenge. You have till midnight of 31st July, 2013 to enter. :)

Have a nice day!

Nikita!! :)

  6. nice challenge. btw i dont own a die cutting machine yet, can i use readily available die cuts? will it be eligible?

    1. Dear Sujana,

      Please note the edit in the post above (in blue.) If the die cuts you use are factory made, they will NOT work. However, if you've purchased die cuts from another crafter, who has cut them using a cuttlebug, big shot and the likes or any electronic die-cutting machine, that is fine.. :) I hope that answers your query. Let us know if you have any other doubts.

      And thank you for your compliments. :D :D
