Challenge #9 ~ Cards

I am just getting used to making cards. I must admit that I still struggle with them. I find it difficult to use such a small space to create with.
However, I made the following two cards using a sketch posted at Let's Capture These Sketches that Darlene posted. I was instantly inspired to create not one.... but two cards.
Challenge: I would like to see two cards on any theme. A nice and easy challenge!! Email your cards to me at to earn a ballot for the 7 Gypsies Binderie Punch.
Bonus: Use the same sketch posted at LCOM and link it on the blog for a chance at some wonderful My Stampbox Stamps!!
**I will be drawing a winner on Monday so you have the weekend to do some more challenges and send them in.
Happy Scrapping!

Challenge #7 ~ Numbers

I created the following layout using the latest kit from weScrap. Since taking over running the site with Ally we have put together some great kits that we can't wait for everyone to see. The following is our first kit release. Grab it while you can because at just $20.99 they are going quickly!

One of the layouts I created for the DT Reveal is of my darling twins, Emmy and DD. I absolutely loved the papers together. They seemed to work with every photo I wanted to use. I used one of Ally's So Sketchy sketches as the base for this layout.

Notice the super cool button I used?? It will be featured in the next kit!! Here is a sneak peek:

Quote: "There's two to kiss, two to hug; but best of all, there's two to love." ~author unknown

Challenge: I would like to see you put a number somewhere on your layout. I can be in your title, on your paper or just an accent on your page. Email your creation to to earn a ballot for this month's draw!

Due Date: October 31st

Happy Scrapping!

Challenge #6 ~ Layer It

It is time to get back on track and punching out the layouts and challenges. I have an easy one for you to do. It is all about layering!! I love to layer my papers and distress them.

Here is the layout I just completed featuring my departed and much missed do, Storm. This layout was difficult to do seeing as I still miss him terribly. However, I can now stare at it sitting in my scrap room and feel close to him.


Challenge #6: I would like to see you layer your papers and distress some edges. Email your creation to me at to earn your ballot for the 7 Gypsies Binderie Bunch and starter kit.
Due: October 31st
Happy Scrapping!
