Fun Friday

Let's do something unexpected this weekend...take your scrapbooking supplies and do something with them that you've never done before. I challenge you to create something NEW and DIFFERENT with your supplies. Have you ever altered a journal before? Created a layout for framing? Used your paper to decoupage a tabletop?

Be sure to share your creations with me!

Thankful Thursday

Here is a link that can be a great time-saver. I LUV but the search feature there, and the sheer volume of info there, makes it hard to find things. If you like sketches, THIS link will take you right to all the sketches that have been posted and tagged as such at their site. Enjoy!

Wordy Wednesday

In honor of the upcoming Mother's Day holiday, I challenge you to do some journaling this week about a special woman in your life. What has she meant to you? How does she inspire you?

Technique Tuesday

Don't be afraid to be bright! One easy way to use bright colors successfully is similar to the advice on mixing ground them with a solid black or white background. Take a look and give it a try!
And just for kicks...if I get TEN comments on this post, I will send out a pack of bright papers to one of the commenters!

Manic Monday!

This week, perhaps for obvious reasons, I challenge you to create a card, layout, or altered project with both stars and stripes on it in some way. It does not need to be a traditionally patriotic project in any way...just use stars and stripes. Share what you come up with and I will post here!

Fun Friday

Let's bring spring! (I don't know about where you are, but here in MI it is sloooow coming and seems to be needing a little encouragement!)

Nothing says spring more than today I challenge you to make some homemade flowers for your projects. Take some time on youtube and you will find tons of tutorials on different designs. So, whip up a few...don't worry about what you are going to use them for just yet. Just have fun creating them. Then later when you need one you will have a perfect handmade embellie all ready to go!
