Blog Stop #3 For Let's Scrap




You are at Blog Stop #3 on the Let's Scrap blog hop!!
This post will stay at the top of my blog until it ends...scroll down for new posts.
National Scrapbooking Day was last weekend, right? Well not at Let's Scrap.
We are celebrating our scrapbooking ALL MONTH LONG. We started with some
great games and challenges during NSD weekend, and now we are back with the
Let's Scrap Design Team Blog Hop. Below you will find a list of those DT's
who are joining us in the blog hop. Each stop on the hop will offer you a
different challenge. Become a follower of each Design Team Member's blog
and as you complete each challenge, upload your finished project to
http://www.letsscrap.ning.com. Return to each blog and make sure to leave
a comment letting us know that you have completed the challenge and uploaded
it to Let's Scrap. Make sure you tag your project with the appropriate tag
(you will find those instructions on each of our blogs-ie: bloghop1,
bloghop2, etc.).
Each Design Team member will randomly select a winner of a small prize for
participating. For the ULTIMATE challenge, and for a chance to win a $50
gift certificate to A Cherry On Top
http://www.acherryontop.com, complete
the challenges you will find on EACH stop on the blog hop. Make sure to tag
your uploads properly so you are sure to be entered into the random drawing.



You can start anywhere along the way within this great group of blogs and
each one will link from one site to the next where you will find all the
great challenges! And the best part is you have two complete weeks to
upload your challenge entries. Even if you don't win the grand prize, if
you choose to complete all the challenges available, just think, you will
have 10 completed projects!

Let's get this hop started!! Remember, to become a follower and return to
leave a comment after completing each challenge. Good luck, and have
fun!!!!
So what is my challenge??
Using this picture as your inspiration make a CARD!! I know I know...you are hopping from blog to blog for Let's Scrap (and that is a Scrapping site) but I thought I would shake it up a bit and give you something alittle different (we do that once a month over at Let's Scrap for our challenge). For your challenge use the 5-5-10 page layout (the left side of it....cause that is the one with only one image) as your sketch (I think that all the circles in this sketch fit perfect with the inspiration picture) and make a square card.....also make sure you include aleast 4 pieces of patterned paper, some brads, and in place of the photo use a stamped image (of course this will not be a 4 x 6 as called for in the sketch)....so what does this challenge call for....here is a summary:
>Square Card
>5-5-10 sketch layout
>aleast 4 different patterned papers
>Brads
>Stamped Image in place of photo
There you have it!! Here is the card I made as an example:
Don't forget to up load you card to Let's Scrap.....you could be a winner!! The tag for this entry is bloghop3.....make sure you use this in the title as well as in the tag entry. Also....along with the possiblity of winning the grand prize if you complete all 10 challenges.....I am giving away a pack of Epoxy Brads from Stampin Up (like the ones I used on my card) so complete this challenge, load it at Let's Scrap and then leave me a comment to let me know you have completed the challenge. See them pictures below:
The next stop along the way is Jean......that will be stop #4!! I know you will find lots of inspiration along the way....and just think....if you complete all 10 blog stops....we will have gotten so many pages completed!! I hope you have fun and enjoy meeting some of the design team from Let's Scrap.....if you haven't signed up to be apart of the Let's Scrap community--you need to hurry on over and join in on all the fun!! Below is a complete list of all 10 blog stops in case you get lost along the way!!

Embellish Dimension Color Challenge


Today I created a card for the Embellish Magazine's Color challenge....they also want us to include dimension of some kind. My colors are taken from the Stampin Up color collection: Baja Breeze, Choc. Chip, Certainly Celery, and Really Rust. My Really Rust back ground was embossed using my paisley embossing folder...the main panel was cut out using the Nessties cutting system...my paisleys on the main panel we cut out and paper piece using the Provo Craft paisley die...that main panel is held in place by dimensional...the center part of the ribbon is attached using a 3D glue dot. Thanks for stopping by to have a look....let me know what you think!!

Mojo Monday Sketch & Color Challenge from SCS




Here is my take on this week's Mojo Monday sketch challenge. I love the 4 blocks and had so many ideas to use them but I have just run out of time.....to much to do today!! Maybe later I will come back to try for of the more creative ideas that are rolling around in my head. I also used the Color Challenge from SCS.......use Gable Green, Lovely Liliac, and Cameo Coral. My base is a square card from Michaels that has already been embossed, all other products are from Stampin Up with the exception of the Stamp....that gorgeous little tree is from VERVE. Let me know what you think.
