It's almost here!

Join us December 1-12 for our 2009 12 Days of Christmas...with a Twist!

The design team will be giving a daily project/tutorial for you to do. If you complete the project, you earn one draw for a Scrapdango Kit!

For each project, there will also be a twist...a challenge to incorporate into that day's challenge. If you choose to do the twist, you will earn another draw! So for each project, you can possibly earn 2 draws! Don't like the twist that day? Just complete the project without the twist and you still earn one draw!

Every other day there will also be a game to participate in! And of course, you can earn draws that way as well!

Sign up in the sign up thread and keep track of your draws there! You have until midnight EST on Friday, December 18 to get all your projects done!

International members welcome to play, however...a $6 shipping credit will be given. Any shipping above the $6 will be the members responsibility.

I can't wait to see the other design team members' projects! And on another note...check out my etsy store, I have loaded lots of fun stuff in the last few days! Great stocking stuffers! And check back on the 2nd for Giveaway Day!

November Kits at Scrapdango!

The November kits at Scrapdango have been revealed! They are gorgeous! I had a hard time picking between the sugar (a little more girly) and the spice (a bit on the boyish side) kits! I had Carrie surprise me and she sent me the Sugar kit. It is filled with Nutmeg goodies from Cosmo Cricket, a sweet assortment of embellishments from Prima and some Thickers! I've played a little with it and I love the colors and patterns!

The Spice kit is all about Robots with Bella Blvd's Super Stud line. This kit also has some fun Thickers, glittery brads, and lots of other embellishments to play with!
Make sure you head on over to Scrapdango before all the sugar and spice is gone! :)

Progressive Blog Hop...Day 3!

Here we are again! I am sad to say that today is the last day of the Scrapdango Progressive Blog Hop! But there is still lots of fun in store today so let's get to it!

Today we are giving you another 6 ingredients...this time to use on an altered item. You can make your altered item anything you would like! I decided to make a Christmas ornament. I used chipboard as my base.

My ingredient for you today is paint. I love all the different things you can do with paint...recolor stickers, paint a swatch and journal on it, use it with a mask, add some texture, and the list goes on and on. For this ornament, I used it to soften the background. I still wanted the words from the vintage dictionary pages to show through bt wanted them to be a little more muted. After mod podging the pages on, I took a cream colored paint and dry brushed it on over the entire thing. Love the effect!
I hope you have fun playing with your paint and all the other ingredients too! Can't wait to see what you do!

Don't forget:
*Link your projects here or here.
*They are due by Monday, November 16th at midnight EST.
*Use ALL 6 ingredients on your project.
*Leave a comment here to be entered to win a RAK!

Progressive Blog Hop...Day 2!

Welcome back for Day 2 of the Scrapdango Blog Hop! If you don't know what I'm talking about, you can catch up here!

Today we're doing a layout! For the ingredients, each of the 6 designers picked one of their favorite things to use on layouts. I chose to do Journal Spots. I use a journal spot on almost every layout that I do, and some cards too! Journaling for me, does not come easily. Before journal spots, I always felt like I wasn't saying enough...wasn't filling up enough space on the layout. Journal spots allow me to make it part of the design and they come in all sizes! I don't know what I'd do without them! :) Here is my example using all the ingredients.
Here are the important things to remember:

*Use ALL 6 of the designers' ingredients on your layout.

*Link it to the blog or forum.

*You have until Monday, Nov. 16 at midnight EST to do them!

*Leave a comment on my blog to be enterd into a drawing for a RAK!

And we're hopping!

Welcome to stop number 2! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you'll find all the details on the Scrapdango blog!

The new Fall 09/Spring 10 design team was just announced over at Scrapdango and I have the privilege of being co-leader with Heather! To welcome and introduce the entire team to you, we are doing a hop through the blogs of the entire team! This is a progressive blog hop, which means at each blog you will learn one ingredient of a recipe challenge that you will have to include on a card, layout or altered item depending on the day!

Today we have a DANGOS card recipe challenge! At each of the dt members' blogs you will get an ingredient that corresponds with a letter in DANGOS. You need to include each of the 6 items on your card (additional items are fine, just make sure you have the 6!) and then provide a link to your card in the comments section of the Scrapdango blog or on the Scrapdango forum! For each challenge you complete, you get 1 draw for one of Scrapdango's kits! Your projects are due by Monday, November 16th at midnight EST.

You can also win a RAK right here by leaving a comment on any of the blog hop posts on my blog through Monday!

Alright, the details are out of the we go!

A is for...Alphabet Stickers

Here is my example that uses all 6 ingredients. Any guesses what the other designers chose? :)

Now hop on over to Nikki's blog to get your next ingredient to add to your card! And don't forget to check back tomorrow for the layout challenge where we'll share some of our favorite things!
