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 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, 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
So what is my challenge??
Using this picture as your inspiration make a CARD!! I know I 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) what does this challenge call is a summary:
>Square Card
>5-5-10 sketch layout
>aleast 4 different patterned papers
>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 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!!

  14. I'm playing along with the blog hop challenges just for fun and since I am DEFINATELY not a card maker, I found this to be quite a challenge! Since I'm not playing for a prize, I did stray a bit...used buttons instead of brads and since I HATE stamping because I am LOUSY at it, I used an embossed image for my sentiment. Uploading now! 2 challenges down, 8 to go!

  28. Hi Deb,

    I finished my card, here it is:

    I'm not too happy with the way it turned out. It is the very first card I ever made and only about the 3rd time I have ever stamped. I didn't have hardly any stamps or material to work with. Hope it is ok. Chriss

  29. Great challenge, Deb! Love that you picked a sketch layout to use....a different twist! Like your example, too. I have become a follower, and I uploaed my card at Let's Scrap today! Thanks for the fun!

  31. My card is up in the gallery and also on my blog

    I'm also a follower.

  32. Such a cute card. I uploaded my card I made for my son for his 9th birthday this weekend.

  33. I just re-read the challenge, and I guess I forgot the part about using the picture as inspiration. Oh well, I made my card, and it was fun. It always helps to have some plan to get started with. I just have to figure out what to use as an envelope, as I don't have time to learn how to make a custom one this a.m.

  34. Just in case you didn't recognize me, bakscrap is my "google" ID, Beth

  35. Here is my layout.

    I struggled a little because I am new to scrapping and have only 2 stamps... But this is the last stop on the bloghop for me. I finished all 10! yeah! What fun!

    I am a follower too...

  36. I'm a follower, and my card is posted at Let's Scrap. Whew...that WAS a challenge for me!!
