Challenge Spotlight August 12th

Happy Tuesday!!! Enjoying the last bits of summer? Are the kids going back to school? Today’s challenge is the Color Challenge hosted by Jennifer of Little Rad Trio! She has an interesting spin for this month’s challenge! The challenge for this month is to use black, white or gray and only one other color!


I love this as it makes the color you do use really pop!

Here are a few examples:

Fresh Baked: August 08, 2014

Good morning! Did you capture a good sale through the bake sale or the GingerBread Girl’s sale? We sure hope you did! This week, we have a new designer joining the team. We’re so excited. The designers have also been working up a storm on some great kits!

Before I get to the goodies, I have to share a few of the awesome layouts I spotted in the gallery, using this month’s Buffet and Monthly Mix, “It’s All Relative”.

Created by weaselwatchr. I, at first, didn’t even notice the ferret. When I did, seeing the cat licking it’s lips with a ferret next to it made me chuckle. I love the use of the tape to hold the picture and the cluster work is beautiful.

WOWZERS! Good morning and welcome to August! Today you get a double batch! New buffet, monthly mix, and daily download, and normal Fresh Baked goodies! The designers are getting back into the swing of things after the store closure, and are working hard on getting even more amazing designs out there, just for you!

It is the First of the month, and that means the revel of our new Buffet!! Don’t forget the new Buffet items will all be 50% off (from the 1-5th of the month)!

The designers all had their own take on what the colors and theme said to them! I love the variety!

The designers knocked it out of the park. The designs are just amazing and so well done!

WOWZERS! That was a bit of a break! The store is back, and running! It’s been upgraded, and will be running more smoothly from both the front-end, and the back-end, making it even easier for the designers to share their amazing designs with you! This week, the designers have some great goodies for you and they’re working extra hard for August’s buffet, which will be released NEXT FRIDAY! Super big newsletter next week!

Before I show you the amazing new goodies, I chose a few layouts from the gallery using the July Buffet and the July Monthly Mix, Summer Time Fun.

Created by msbrad. I love how the pictures are connected with clusters and elements. It keeps your eyes focused right on the pictures.

Challenge Spotlight July 22nd

Happy Tuesday!!! Is everyone going through store withdrawals like I am???? I have my fingers and toes crossed the store will be back and better than ever on Friday. I am looking forward to previewing all the great goodies the designers have been creating in the past week. But even though the store is down, this gives everyone an opportunity to look into their scrap stashes and get some challenges done! There’s still time to complete 10 challenges to get the great collab kit!!!

This weeks’ spotlight, the Word Art Challenge is hosted by Sherry Ferguson. This challenge comes with a freebie. And all you have to do for this challenge is to use the provided freebie in a layout. I love looking through the challenges to see what the other members have made for the challenge. I love all the different takes.

What would your take be??? Scrap it, post it and record it in our tracking thread and you are on your way towards earning this fabulous kit!

Challenge Spotlight July 8th

Happy Tuesday! Hope everyone had a great long weekend! It was hard to get back into the groove of things after the holiday weekend. I hope everyone in the US enjoyed the fireworks, I was able to see the fireworks over the National Mall. That’s one more thing to check off my bucket list!

This week’s featured challenge is the Designer Spotlight Challenge! All you have to do is create a LO using the products of one (or both) of the featured designers! This month the designers being featured are Connie Prince and Trixie Scraps! Together, they are North Meets South Studios! This is an easy challenge to do if you are a fan of them like I am! A sizable chunk of my scrap stash is from their stores.

Create a LO for this challenge and 9 others and you will receive this fabulous collab for this month:

Just make sure to keep track of your Challenge LO’s in the tracking thread (image is linked).
