Scrapshotz Crop - Family Games Night!

What a fun crop we had over at Scrapshotz this weekend! The theme was Family Games Night and there were tons of great games and challenges to play with!

I posted a layout challenge with the theme of Family Feud. Here is my sample layout:
My non-layout challenge was a card project, and I used the game Perfection as the inspiration for it. Like the game, crop participants had a time limit to finish! Great fun, and everyone got at least most of the card done in 15 minutes!
Later this week I'll post my completed projects from the crop! TFL! Have a great week!

May Reveal at Scrapshotz

It was my second month as Guest Design Team at Scrapshotz, and this time we did a full reveal. We chose our product from the great selection of new products in the store, and had some fun!

I thought that the Graphic 45 - A Proper Gentleman line would make nice manly cards, but really I had no idea. The images are perfect for men and beg to be showcased on cards! I could have went on and on with these cards, but thought I should try to do something else, too! LOL! These are all done using 3 sheets of patterned paper, and I have plenty left for a bunch more cards!

The next product line I worked with was the Bella Blvd Estate Sale. I love the muted blues and browns in this! I cut the scalloped circle out by hand (I traced a Pink Paislee pp!) It is a really easy line to work with, too.

Then I dug into the Pink Paislee - 365 Degrees Collection. How much fun are all the goodies in this line???? Great colors and great patterns, too. For this layout I used patterned paper piece for the background and layer, then some of the delicious cork buttons in the line. I love the texture they give it!
This layout is also using the Pink Paislee - 365 Degrees Collection. It doesn't even look like the same collection, does it? I wonder if that's where the name comes from? Laughing I used a strip border and a flip note on this. they are so nice to use, as it didn't need anything else.
Finally, I wanted to make a card with the scraps and I just happened to have this image colored in the perfect shade of blue! I can think of a few girls that could be the recipient of this one.

Thanks for looking! Have a great weekend and a Happy Mother's Day to everyone!
