'Just A Scrappin' Challenge for April 25 is No neutral colors.  Make a card, LO, or project but NO white, black, brown or gray. This was not a hard as I first thought it would be.  

I needed a masculine card for  a Farewell card for a staff member that's leaving the community so that's were I started.  I used a 4" X 5 1/2" card base, Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut 1 orange tag <flower6> at 1 1/2" and the orange star <Star5> Layer at 1 1/2".  I used sliver cord across the front for contrast.  The inside says "Wishing you a Lifetime of Happiness!".  Please join the fun at Just A Scrappin'

Just A Scrappin' Challenge for April 18, 2013 is NEW Arrival, make a card, LO, or project for a new baby or pet.  I made a project for a friend, I used the baby announcement to make a wall hanging for the baby's room.  I took a solid card stock that matched the color of the brushed pink  in the card and used a pre-made dark gray frame for the outside then used the light gray for the background.  I cut one < rctngle8> at 6 1/2 inches from Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, centered the announcement on to the pink card stock,  taped it to the light gray and added the frame.  Computer printed the congratulations, cut a flag to fit above the matted card.

Case Study Challenge #136  is to take the Muse (JJ Bolton ) card and use it for inspiration  using a little or much from the design.  Experiment with bold colours or clever designs.  I used the frame idea and a photo from 1988 that I have always been going to do something more with.  I used patterned card stock for the inside frame then the solid for the outside frame.  Join in at Case Study Challenge #136  for this challenge.

Just A Scrappin' Challenge for Apr. 11,2013 is Anything Goes with spring colors.  I did a painters tray with photos form the past.  First  the pictures that was the hard part.  I found so old photos of my Mom's and used that to start with.  The 1946 photo had the writing on it so I just used it as is.  While looking for embellishments I found the LOL bubble and it fit so I added it to the top.  I cut from Art Philosophy 1 tag <rctngle4> at 1 1/2 inches, Butterflies <bttlfly1> glitter paper at 2 inches, <bttlfly2> at 1 1/2,  <bttlfly2> Layer at 1 1/2 inches, Heart: <Heart1> at 1 1/2 inches, <Arrow2> at 1 1/4 inches. I took each photo and selected the paper color and embellishment then placed them into the tray. I made the ribbon flower by using the wire on one side to gather the ribbon into a flower shape.  I cut the other end off then tied the wire ends together.  I used Jots Jumbo to hold it in place.  All supplies form my stash plus 3M ACT Tape.  Come join us in the fun of Anything Goes at Just A Scrappin'
