Crop Projects

Hey there…I wanted to share with you today some of the projects that I had been working on for the last week.  These were for the challenges on the Scrap Shotz Facebook page for our online crop for International Scrapbooking Day which was on the 2nd.  You can find the Scrap Shotz store here if you want to look around


The crop was Music themed, so our projects corresponded with songs!

This was a layout for the the challenge You’ve got a Friend In Me…a project about friendship.  Taken a few years ago at a bucket list concert I attended, were these pictures of my friend Amy and I at Rob Thomas (one of my very favorite singers)


This layout was a bit of a stretch for me because it involved mixed media – not my forte.  The song was Leaving on a Jet Plane…it was the last challenge of the day and it was to use some mixed media and the sketch provided that Brande created…a really great one!  i was actually surprised at how well this turned out for me.

This one was  Eye of the Tiger….the challenge was to use a stencil!  I found this old stamp set when I was cleaning up my scrap space and the stencil is actually from Emerald Creek Crafts.

No photo description available.

Circles by Post Malone was this challenge – use circles on your project!  I broke out my Taylored Expressions die for this one, which was perfect!  I also did a bit of circle stenciling in this one.

For ‘the Final Countdown” we had needed to complete an old project…I chose this layout that I had created in a Vicki Boutin class for Crop and Create probably about 3 or so years ago, I think the first one that came to Calgary,  that I hadn’t added pictures to yet.  Love this! (excuse that black line in the bottom right…it’s my headphones cord)



So that’s an idea of some of the challenges and projects that we worked on….if you get a chance to participate in an online crop, go for it…it’s great fun and it really gets the creative juices flowing….


Thanks for stopping by!

Here is my layout for you!


I used some paper from my Frosted by Fancy Pants.  I also used some thickers and glittered snowflake brads from my stash.  The big blue snowflakes is a die in my collection.  These gorgeous photos were taken at Banff when we were there in December for my staff Christmas party.

Thanks for stopping by and please check out the blog and all the great DT projects for you this week.

Some New Layouts

Hey there..I know it seems like I only do cards but I do in fact throw in a couple layouts here and there..LOL

Here are a couple that I did for Challenge Masters!  They are doing a Project Scrapbook Contest right now, so each week we have to create a new layout according to the perameters.  Week 1 it was creating a layout using only party supplies, no patterened paper or cardstock, etc…I think mine turned out pretty well

Week 2 which we just finished was a theme about food, but something other than the traditional holidays that always get scrapped.  So I scrapped about the first time that Riley ate real food…

Challenge Masters has lots of great challenges hosted by the Challenge Diva’s.  There are new ones each week so please make sure you stop by.  The new Week Two Challenges were just posted!  It’s a great place for inspiration and to get the mojo started!  Here is the link to our Forum.  It’s free to join and we’d love to have you!

Also, our first blog hop is happening this coming weekend and we have TONZ of prizes to give away so you don’t want to miss it!
