As many of you have heard, one of my favorite places to shop has decided to close their retail doors. *Sadface* The good news is that Crop Chocolate's social doors are going to remain open, and the owner is trying to work with his customers to make things work in some way. The online friends that I've met through Crop Chocolate mean so much to me, so I'm happy that it will continue in some way.
To celebrate National Scrapbooking Day, Crop Chocolate is hosting a whole series of challenges. Check them out under the contest tabs at CropChocolate.com! Here are the challenges I've completed so far:
Challenge #2: Tic Tac Toe - Using the tic tac toe board, pick one line in any
direction and include those three items on your project (card or
layout). Please make sure you let us know which 3 you used!
I did the row down the middle - a stamp, patterned paper and a ribbon. I'm also submitting this to 3 Girl Jam Challenge - Anything Goes! The ribbon is one of their fabulous crinkly ribbons that I just LOVE!
Challenge #3: Buttons and Bows - Create a project using at least one button AND at least one bow. As far
as the rules: for the bow(s)…you can use ribbon, twine, paper, a
stamped image or even a hand drawn bow. And since we are so easy ;)
same goes for the button(s)… you can use an actual button, a stamped
image, chipboard piece, paper or hand drawn image. The sky is the
limit! Use your imagination, go crazy!! We are celebrating today!!
Have fun and show us what you GOT!!
Challenge #4: Bugs - Spring is upon us and many things are coming out of their winter sleep .
. . . . bugs being one of them. So our challenge to you is to do a
project out of your comfort zone and use bugs in/on it.
You can check out the instructions for this card on my Instructagram - here!
Challenge #5: Make a card or layout using 2 kinds of glitter, gems, Stickles or some other bling.
Bling on the corner and all the hearts are Stickles!
Challenge #6: Create a project, card, scrapbook page or altered item that contains a window.
Challenge #8: Use Karen's sketch to create something AMAZING! Only catch?? Aside
from using the sketch, you must use something new, and you must use
something from your scrap pile.
I will be giving away two prizes. One is blog candy drawn from a name of someone who enters a project into Challenge #8. It includes some liquid pearls, some rub-ons, a CTMH stamp set, some ribbons and a TH embossing folder. To be entered into the drawing for this candy, submit a project to Challenge #8 and follow my blog.
I will also be giving away a $15 Amazon gift card to a crafty contestant who follows my blog and enters a different project into each of the 8 challenges!
