Want a little sneak peek of one of the many challenges while you wait?

Friday, May 29, 2009

Have you jumped on the clear album bandwagon yet? I was so hesitant because they look complicated, but having a couple under my belt I can tell you that the beauty of them is that they are not! The layering simply takes care of itself and lends so much depth to any project. Take a look!

And don't forget, if you haven't signed on as a follower yet, there is still time to get in on a chance for a freebie!

I figure what is a better way to kick this blog off with a bang than to give away some FREE goodies! So here is what I'm going to do...I will randomly draw a name from everyone who signs on as a follower before the
IF IT'S GROOVY cybercrop begins on June 4. That lucky person will receive a RAK from me!

And how about another chance to win? I will contact the winner and ask them who referred them. If it is YOU, you will win a RAK as well!

So...if you are not already following the blog, sign up over at the right, and then go tell your scrappy friends to sign on as well and increase your chances of winning!

One other thing...I've been going through a little scrapping withdrawl as I've had very little time to craft this month but I did steal a few minutes tonight and create this using the Die Cuts With a View Green Stack. It was a simple layout that came together quickly with the really quirky paper and a sketch from 52 Weeks 52 Sketches. Sometimes it is nice to take short cuts and the result can still be a lot of fun.

I also want to note that not all 2-pagers need to be created together! I plan on displaying "Bad Tacos" as the companion page to this layout which I put together weeks ago.

Some 2-pagers really are a single unit but sometimes, like with these, each can stand alone as well.

Okay, scrappers, who among you likes a good challenge?

Who among you loves a great cybercrop?

Yeah, I thought so. So do I!

That is why I'm spending the days between June 4 and June 14 over at
If It's Groovy. Yes, you read that right, TEN WHOLE days of cropping fun with challenges and games galore!

You thought we were groovy before, just you wait!!
I've decided that to cater to the interests of two different groups of people it is better to separate my family life blog from my scrappy blog. I hope this isn't too inconvenient for those of you interested in both! Anyway...welcome to Marci's Scrapping Spot!

Just to get things started right off, here is a layout I did today. I hadn't scrapped a layout in over a week and I could feel the stress just melt away when I finally sat down to work on this. I used some old Making Memories paper. I'm really liking the way pastels look against white these days.
