Fun with Colour for August with Fiskars

Here's what I am up to this month with Fiskars... thought I would join in and have a play...The lovely Annette has really got us thinking this month..

So here it is....

Nice to see you!!

Thanks for stopping by to see what is coming up in the month of August.

Thought it best to post this today so you had a little time to get your head around it!

What better way to get through the last month of winter than with a NICE BIG HEALTHY dose of


As well as some inspiring colour goodness from our Ambassadors EVERY day for the month of August, YOU too will have the chance to get creative and show us what colour is in your little part of the world.

Why? Simply to open our eyes and appreciate the colour all around us, it makes for a happy existence :0)!



We will be looking at a total of 9 colours over the month. Every four days we will concentrate on one particular colour. At the beginning of each colour block i will tell you what colour you are chasing as well as posting my colour photo of the day.

What to do: Post your photo on your blog, linking it back to the Fiskars ANZ blog and then leave a comment under my post to let me know you are playing and then i can come and check it out.

At the end of each colour block i would love to use your photo to put into a collage for that particular colour, to post here on the ANZ Fiskars blog which will of course be linked back to you. Collages look FANTASTIC when they are colour coded.

Don't have a blog, no worries, just email me your photo (keep it small please :0) ) and i will include it in the collage.


We want YOU to inspire US, show us how you have used your colour photos in a layout or a mini album or some other creative venture and email a photo through to with "scrap your colour - August challenge" in the subject line. We can then upload it into our challenge album for all to admire.:0)

Now if you have some other photos that you would like to scrap using colour but they are not from the photo a day challenge, then GO FOR IT - that's fine too!

The only stipulation for this challenge is that you must use a Fiskars tool and let us know which one or ones you have used.



You have to take part in the photo a day challenge and scrap them ALL. this will put you into an extra draw to win some Fiskars goodness!!

That means 31 photos girls, 1 per day!! Who's up for it? This is my goal, who's going to join me?

So we have 2 challenges with an extra incentive to complete both. Make sense?

Okay i think that just about covers it all. Any questions please don't hesitate to email me - .

Come on don't be and enjoy.

Saturday morning August 1st check back here to see what colour i want you to chase, and i warn you it is addictive, you will enjoy it - get the kids involved they will risk life and limb to find something in the colour you need ;0)

Why not give it a try... pull out your camera and check out the Fiskars Blog for details.

Cheers M x
