Scrapping Sunday at SOS!

our STAMP challenge is still going strong at Scrap Our Stash!  My S-T-A-M-P stash called for:
S-Scalloped edge punch (used on the gold)

STAMP your way into April!

yup, it's April folks and that means another challenge is ready over at Scrap Our Stash!  This time, our word challenge is STAMPS!

now IF I could win, here's some goodies I would pick from their store (just saying)-they have things to feed my flair and wood veneer addictions!!!

Challenge YOUrself's March challenge is up!

loved using my Teresa Collins goodies

Our March challenge for you is a great one!  It has to do with life goals, big or small, something you want to learn, conquering a fear, anything...it's YOURS...

We want to see YOU in a layout that shows something you've already achieved on your bucket list OR your bucket list in general!
I'll admit it, I am NOT the adventurous person so no skydiving or bungy jumping for me and as a military brat AND military vet, I have already traveled to some of the places that many desire to go (I'd love to revisit many but only one is on my bucket list) so...I apologize that my list is a little blurry but here's my list:

Travel:  Hawaii, Bermuda and Panama
(Hawaii to surf and go to a luau, Bermuda to snorkel and Panama since I am 1/2 Panamanian and I'd love to revisit as a grownup and do some awesome photography and geneology)

Spend a whole summer in Florida, pet a giraffe (my fav animal), sellout crafty/scrappy items at a craft fair -relearn how to ride a bike (don't judge), run 10K (well, run in general), get pubbed in Somerset Memories, Let's Make a Deal taping AND kiss Wayne Brady (I am a LMAD fanatic, I love Wayne after Idris & George lol), solo train ride to the West Coast for some great photography and solitude, and finally, a Disney Cruise :):)

What's on your "SOMEDAY I WILL " list???? You have until April 4th to link up with us at Challenge Yourself ; this month's lucky winner gets a $ 10 GC from CU to my fav online scrappy store:

It's a Scrapping Sunday!

I've been on a mission to use stash and all these snow/ice days have given me plenty of opportunity to do just that!  Some super Sunday layouts that I did just  made for myself!!

Still loving those cards I get in my Paper Issues orders!

It's a Studio Challenge!

Decided to rewatch Season 2 of House of Cards AND since its another dang snow day, I am multitasking and scrapping too! Came across a new site for me called THE STUDIO CHALLENGES and their March challenge was quite the challenge:  A List!  You pick any/ all of these items:  mist/stamping/sequins/chip/brads or eyelets/thread/vellum/yellow...so, I grabbed some supplies and used everything but mist and instead of thread I used string on the tag.  Hope you like! After I did the stenciling, it came together faster than I thought it would. Great Fancy Pants products, awesome vellum by DCWV mixed with Simple Stories!!

Happy Thursday!  Just posting some layouts ere & there that I've done over the course of all these February snow days and snow delays (GRRRR)...I love getting scrap goodies from Paper Issues because Cassie not only packs your goodies all special, but she adds these super cute cards like the unicorn one in there.  I knew I had to use it on a layout.  I should've used it on my Color Run layout, but, too late!

SOS reveal

I'm up on the Scrap Our Stash blog today with my reveal for this month's February Sketch Challenge!  Our talented guest designer, Lisa H, created the sketch for our creating pleasure and we had to use the below color palette so, here's my take on it :) using up a lot of my American Crafts stash.

you still have time to join us!  Link up your creations at Scrap Our Stash by Feb 27!!

February 25, 2015

Our GC to Peachy Cheap is still up for grabs!

You still have time to play along with our "I AM" Challenge at Challenge Yourself
A color palette to inspire you and all you have to do is add the I AM in there and of course YOU must be in the layout!!!

and since I had a brain freeze, I never photographed my own layout (I will do it tomorrow since we may have a snow day AGAIN) and so I hope DT Aurelie will inspire you with her gorgeous layout!

Scrapping Sunday-let's fill it with WASHI!


It's a Scrapping Sunday for me so I thought I'd share our Stash Challenge #23 over at Scrap Our Stash! This month's stash challenge is all about WASHI!

 But, as I explained before,  you don't have to use Washi, you just have to use supplies that begin with the first letter of the word WASHI.  Here's what I used: 

W (Washi tape) A (American Crafts arrow paper)
S (Stripes and Sequins) H (Hearts all over) and  I (Ink around my hand cutting)
Don't forget that one lucky scrapper will win a $ 20 GC to The ScrapRoom!


Lisa H is our guest designer at SOS -join us!

Lisa Hidy from My Creative Endeavors is our guest sketch artist at Scrap Our Stash this month!
She puts together cute sketches like this:
and comes up with adorable layouts like this:

February calls for some WASHI!

Our first challenge for February over at Scrap Our Stash is all about WASHI stash!  But let me explain just in case!  This first stash challenge for the month just means you can use whatever you have in your stash that "SPELLS" the first letter of the word W-A-S-H-I...for example Washi tape, Ampersand, Stripes, Harry Potter (if you're a Potter fan like me) and Ink *** Oh wait, I think I just gave myself an idea for a a layout!

My reveal isn't up on the blog yet, but swing over to SOS and check out this weeks layouts from DT divas Lynn, Elena, Steffanie  and more~! Awesome stuff there!
