It Takes Two!


   Happy Wednesday!  Here at Scrap-Creations Wednesdays = Stampotique Designers challenge and this weeks challenge is "double the fun."  This weeks Hostess is Valerie and here is what Valerie has to say about this weeks challenge:
 "Nope, that's not a typo! This week we are celebrating the 2nd anniversary of the Stampotique monthly swap. This week, let's feature two's. You can interpret this any way you want. Duos, mirrors, the number two, duplicates - whatever comes to mind."

   One of my favorite things about joining challenges, is coming up with the creative idea.  When preparing for this weeks challenge, I was sifting through my stamps deciding what I would use, when I spotted the "Skunk with Word on the side" stamp by Kira Nichols.  I knew I wanted to use a play on words for this challenge, note the "too" on my card, and I LOVE the stamp, so i went with it, and this is what I came up with for this weeks challenge.  
    Thank you Valerie for a super fun challenge, and I sure do hope you will join us for this weeks challenge over at Stampotique Originals for some super fun!  Have a great day and thank you for stopping by.

A Little Wizard of OZ for you!


                    Here is my project for this weeks Stampotique Originals Designers CHallenge. 
This week our hostess is Sue Davies and she is giving us a fun challenge "Use only Hues of Reds and Pinks"

Here is what Sue says about this challenge:"With Valentine's Day around the corner we have all seen hues of reds and pinks, I challenge you to create a Stampotique Valentine's Day creation inspired by reds and pinks"
   I love red and pinks, so this was a super fun challenge for me.   Pink and reds remind me of love, and I just adore this tin man stamp by Janet Klein and thought it would work wonderful in my project this week.   I also used the neverending wall by Arwen McCullen as my yellow brick road. My font was computer generated.  I hope you enjoyed my project and will join us over at the challenge group for a chance to win $30.00 worth of FREE product! Have a wonderful day!

Going Grey With Scrap-Creations Challenge: New


   I would like to apologize for being so late on this challenge.  As I mentioned in an earlier post, I had a death in my family and honestly I am just starting to feel some what back to "normal".  I guess it's just a different "normal" now.  Anyways, I am sorry for being late and the challenge schedule will be back to normal next week.
  This weeks challenge is "new", you may translate this however you would like.  I decided that my "new" is actually sending the cards that I make.  I usually make a card and stash it away in a box, so this card is going to a dear friend who is so good about sending cheer my way.

    The TOP 3 from the last challenge are: 

 Pamilla
     
 Elizabeth
     

                                                                                  Kate

Christmas Ornament


   Happy Wednesday!  I hope you are having a good week.  Just think, we are half way till the weekend.  Today is Wednesday and here at Scrap-Creations is Stampotique Originals Designers challenge day.  This weeks hostess is Valerie, and here is what Val has to say about this weeks challenge.
       "Lets see where your creativity takes you! Sequins come in every size and color and can be used in so many ways. Where will they end up in your project? :)"
 

This was a super fun challenge for me, as I have NEVER used sequins before.  I decided to make a Christmas ornament and used the sequins as my snow.  I used Reindeer by Magda Polakow, and  Tree-O by Jo Capper-Sandon.  This was a super fun and easy challenge and I hope you will join us over at the Stampotique Originals Designer challenge for a chance to win $30.00 in free product.  Can't wait to see what you great.  Have a great weekend.
