Simply Neutrals #45

Hello dears!

Welcome to the Simply Neutrals monthly linky party for the month of June. I'm sorry I'm a bit late today! From now on it will look all a bit different because I changed from paid subscription to the free one of the InLinkz linky tool. So instead of little thumbnails showing up in the link up, there will now be only text links. I hope you don't mind? (And I hope it's working properly. Please let me know if it isn't!)

My entry for this month is a collection of some of the round robin pages I created over the years.



I really loved the card Esther created! Esther is new to the party, so please give her a warm welcome. Her blog is called Shoregirl's Creations. Here is her beautiful card:

The textures, the warm hues, the sweet little birdie and beautiful flowers, it is all looking so gorgeous! Thank you for sharing your beautiful card with us, Esther, and if you like, you can use this "I was featured" blog button on your blog:

On to this week's party!


To join the party, please keep the following things in mind:

1) Please link only to the blogpost that contains the photo(s) you want to share, and not to your blog's homepage.

2) Kindly link back to AppleApricot by putting a link to my blog in your blogpost.

Of course you're most welcome to use the blog button of Simply Neutrals Tuesday as well
(which can be found in the sidebar of my blog)

3) Link ups to both new and older blog posts are welcome.
Of course it would be nice if you link up to a new or recent blog post, but if there is something from the archives you'd really want to link up here, then please feel welcome to do so.

4) You can link up from your blog, but if you do not have a blog but would love to link up from your instagram or other social media account, that's perfectly fine too.
Beware though, that may be not everyone can come visit and/or leave you a comment there.

5) Please take time to visit some of the other link ups and send them some love.
The most recently added link ups will show in the list first.

Time for the link up!

xx Wen

Simply Neutrals Tuesday linky party at AppleApricot


  1. Oh, Wow! Thanks for featuring my window/bird card this week. I'm honored!

  2. Thank you dearest Wen for sharing part of your creatively delicious round robin collection with us! I could study them for an hour or more just to discover every pretty and pefect detail you included on each page. I love neutrals in everything, art, my home decor, my wardrobe, even gifts I make and give to others. I recently made my daughter a long beaded garland. I left the large beads in their natural color and strung on a sturdy burlap cord. Between each bead I tied a small piece of antique handmade cream cotton lace and finished each end with a tassel of the same lace. She was delighted, but not nearly as delighted as I was making it and giving it to her!
    Double thanks to you my friend for sharing Esther's adorable card! Like you, I love how she enhanced the overall neutral with bits of dusty colors and the bird, that cute little bird and then finished it off with her yellow-gold crinkly ribbon! I long to become that accomplished as she is in using color and texture as the heart of a creation. I would have left a comment at the party, but I don't have a blog. I simply could not let your or Esther's treasure's go without leaving a note of delight. Be well...

  3. Hi Wen, so much for my good intentions to blog every week!!! I enjoyed a break too, though, and visited my mum and my sister for a week.

    Esther's card is gorgeous, with its beautiful bird done in vintage layers. Just my favourite style! Hope you had a great month of LIFE too!
    love and hugs,
    Jesse XX

  4. Hi Wen,
    Lovely to be participating in SNT once again for another month! I hope the gap gave you some breathing space and you are now back into some wonderful Summertime creating once again as we face our Winter skies and bare but beautiful trees again. I so love what each season brings.
    Esthe's card is very sweet with the bird image and LOVE your collage filled with your beautiful and inspiring works of art!
    Love and hugs for now,
    Suzy xox

  5. Esther's card is amazing!
    Hope you enjoyed your time away from blogging!
    Happy June Wen!
    Hugs, Susi

  6. Hello again, Wen, I forgot to mention how much I enjoyed your collage of round robin pages. Such an inspiration, it looks fun to do.

  7. Dear Wen- hello my friend,
    your Round Robin pages, looks stunning- I wish I could see them in real, I love what I can see,- and the card Esther created is adorable - I will visit her blog, for sure :-)
    I hope you are doing good, dear friend- and that life treats you well.
    Big hugs, and love from Dorthe

  8. Wow, what a beautiful collection of round robin pages! I love the vintage style and the designs are amazing, thanks for the inspiration 😁. Many congratulations Esther, your card is stunning! Wishing you a Happy June dear Wen! J 😊 x

  9. Hello Wen~ I enjoyed my visit today; and taking a closer look at your beautiful 'round robin' pages! Thank you for sharing.
    I liked Esther's card very much! It has a great rustic/vintage vibe~
    I hope to visit more entries soon. love & hugs, karen o

  10. I don't blame you for making the switch from a paid version to one that is much cheaper. Now you can take all that money and put it into creative supplies (lol). Nice pages too - I was a bit surprised that there are round robin pages - for some reason I only had my head into crazy quilting with that form of art exchange.

  11. I want to add my link :

    (Cannot add links: Registration/trial expired)

  12. Hi Wen, I hope you had a lovely June! Seeing Susi's post made me wonder whether you have considered opening the Simply Neutrals Tuesday link for the whole month rather than just a week? This would give us more time to get creative for Simply Neutrals Tuesday throughout the month and join the party. This is only a suggestion so no worries if you keep it to a week or maybe you prefer to trial it for a month, as I really don't know if it will create any more work as I am not familiar with the software you use etc. Take care and wishing you a Happy July! J 😊 x

    1. Great idea Jo! I will open the linkup for the whole month from now on :) xx

  13. Just had another thought, as we can back link we could easily link any of our Simply Neutrals creations the following month instead 😁. Hugs J x


Thank you so much for leaving me a sweet message, I love reading your comments. Hugs and happy day to you! xx Wen
