I have a quickie card to share… it’s for my weekly card challenge at Scrap Shotz.  Each week members are challenged to make cards using supplies that start with a given letter… this week’s letter was “C”.  I’m down to a few scraps of the beautiful Crate Sweet Branch line so I tried to use it up.  If you’re interested in participating, you can find my weekly card challenges here.

That’s all for today.

Cheers!

I’m double-dipping as they say… combining my 2S4Y Card for this week with my SSZ DT Challenge!  It was too perfect an opportunity not to take.  When I saw Kazan’s Sketch 9, I figured it would be a perfect fit with my gate fold card challenge so VOILA!  This is what I came up with:

2S4Y 09/15 Gatefold "Love"

2S4Y 09/15 Gatefold

Here is a little peek at the inside, nothing fancy but looks a little more finished:

The mid-month challenges go up on Scrap Shotz today. I thought I would share my card challenge with you here, but absolutely check out the site for my layout challenge, as well as challenges by some members of our super-talented design team!

I was surfing the net and came across an adorable flower card template posted by Mel on her blog.  It was too cute not to try, so I did!  My challenge to Scrap Shotz members is to make a shaped card, no rectangles, squares or circles.  Here is my version of that funky little flower:

Have a fabulous Friday everyone!

Well, it really never a bad time to make Christmas Cards, is it?  We’ve been running an all-year Christmas Card Club at Scrap Shotz, and after this month participants should have 80% of their cards made for this year… pretty sweet, huh?  I’d like to share the August challenge, as I’m giving away a SWEET new Imaginisce Snowy Jo stamp in a draw from those who participate!  All you have to do is go to this thread to check it out!

Here are my cards for this month (I keep them simple as it’s an assembly line thing), I am in love with with this product line from Imaginisce!

Have a great day!

Well, the crop was a success!  Everyone rocked out and scrapped their little hearts out!  The prizes will be drawn this evening so we’ll have several happy scrappers at Scrap Shotz tonight. 🙂

I thought I’d share a couple of the challenges I did for the crop.

Here is a spinner card I made for Guest Card DT Ann’s “You Spin Me Round” Challenge:

Lastly, we kicked the whole thing off with our second ever Scrap Shotz Gives Back Challenge.  For everyone tht participated in the challenge Scrap Shotz is donating $5 to the Make A Wish Foundation, a very worthwhile cause!  For this challenge, Creative Planner Kathy challenged us all to create a LO or card somehow inspired by music, easy right??  Here’s mne:

All in all, it was a Rockin’ Good Time!  We had a blast swaping you tube links and can’t wait to do it again!

Next up, anyone interested in a card challenge?  After the crop, I was left with oodles of scraps so I posted a card challenge on Scrapshotz to help make use of all of those little bits.  I am drawing for a RAK on Sunday night for this one so you might want to check it out!

You can find the challenge here: http://www.scrapshotz.com/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=19703

Here are two that I whipped up in a half-hour yesterday (see how easy it is?) loosely based on a Pagemaps sketch:
