Challenge #6 - Let's Go to the Movies

The designer's challenge for this week was to create a look inspired by a movie genre (i.e.: action/adventure, sci-fi, western, romance, or a period piece).

We were donated some amazing wood books by Genuinely Jane Studios which we will use for this week's challenge. Your challenge will be to create a distinctive look for your wood book that is based on one of the movie genres mentioned above.

We received 6 books, so it's first come, first serve as usual. Please leave a comment on the blog or email Beth at if you would like to participate in this challenge. Please note that not all of the books are the same - we have numbered them so we will give them out in the order they are requested.

You have until SUNDAY, October 4th to complete your books and email your photos to Lucinda at

Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Sorry this took so long to post my phone has been down so I have been unable to talk to anyone. Thank you Lucinda for typing this up!

Challenge #5 - Extra, Extra, Read All About It!!!

On this week's show, the challenge was to create an outfit out of newspaper! That's right, you read it correctly - NEWSPAPER!! The outfits some of the designers created were absolutely amazing - you couldn't even tell it was paper on some of them!

Beth and I were trying to figure out how to make this challenge work for scrapbooking, so here's what we came up with!

We have kits donated from Rusty Pickle
that have some newspaper elements on them, so we decided to go with those for this week!

Your challenge will be to use the Rusty Pickle kits and create a layout that is about something newsworthy in your life or someone else's life (examples are: buying a house, promotion, learning something new, or anything that is good news!!). You will also need to incorporate printed media in your layout somehow (you could cover chipboard, use cut-out letters for a "headline" title, make newspaper flowers or other embellishments, etc.). Examples of printed media are: newspaper, magazines, old or new books, catalogs/ads, etc.

Email me at if you would like a kit - we have 10 more available so hurry!! Please do not leave a comment on the blog about the kits since Beth is the one who receives those and we know she is busy with her new baby).

So just to recap, Challenge #5 is to create a "newsworthy" layout using the kit provided to you, and incorporate some type of printed media on it.

You have until midnight next Thursday, Sept. 24th to email me your layouts (! Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!!

Meet Baby Noah

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to share an adorable pic I took last night when I was visiting Beth and her family - isn't Noah just adorable?! He is so sweet! Beth and family are doing great - not getting much sleep, but that's normal I guess! :)

Obviously, Beth will be late with getting her page submitted for Challenge #4, but that's alright - I guess we can give her a break since she just had a baby, right? :)

I've only gotten 3 pages back so far, so try to get yours to me asap ( -k-?

I will be trying to get the slideshow/voting up today sometime if the kiddos will let me sneak away for awhile!

On this week's show the 13 remaining designers had to design an outfit for their model to wear, but their model had to put in her own suggestion of what she wanted for an outfit (ex: cut, color, length, etc.).

So we thought it would be fun for you to design a scrapbook page for one of the other gals participating in this week's challenge. So here is how it works: You have until noon on Sat. Sept. 12th to email up to 3 photos of the same event emailed to We then will randomly draw names of who gets whose photos & e-mail them to you. When e-mailing your photo's YOU MUST include the following info: who, where & when & your scrapbooking style/suggestions (ex: plain, shabby chic, grunge, bling, etc. You may also put that you want to be surprised). This is a use your own stuff this week. We won't always have kits, but we will always have PRIZES!
PLEASE ladies if you are going to sign up to do it really DO IT! It would be no fun for someone to participate & not get anything back. If you know you won't be able to do it let us know so we can pull your pics & give them to someone else. You have till midnight on Thur. Sept. 17th to turn in your pages!

This week's challenge has a bit of a twist to it. On the show the 14 remaining Designers had to partner up with one their fellow contestants & design a surfer/beach inspired/Avant-Garde outfit.

In case you're wondering, here's the definition of Avant-garde: Avant-garde refers to people or works that are experimental or innovative, particularly with respect to art, culture, and politics, or in this case - papercrafting!

We thought it might be a little hard to get you ladies together so we put the partner thing aside this time. Lucinda and I thought it would be fun to make your own style (remember, experimental or innovative) of Fashionably Fun Accessory for the beach using papercrafting supplies.

You may use your own stash of supplies, plus you can purchase whatever extra you need (ex: your local scrapbook store, craft store, hardware or fabric store, etc.). Some examples of things you could do are: decorate a pair of flip flops (I want to see more than just ribbon), a hair tie/bow, make a piece of jewelry, decorate a purse, etc.. Don't let this challenge scare you! I have seen some amazing stuff made out of scrapbooking/papercrafting items. Think out of the box, - you can use chipboard for charms or even acrylic & buttons. Let your imagination flow; you will be surprised what you can come up with! I recommend you check out Tim Holtz's website and blog to get inspired - he has made some amazing stuff.

***Anyone can join in since there are no kits for this challenge - the more the merrier!!

As usual, your entry for Challenge #3 - Fashionably Fun Beach Accessory, will be due on Thursday, September 10th. If it's late, that just means less time for your friends/family to vote for you! Email a pic of your entry to Lucinda - her email address is

Good luck - can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!!
