National Scrapbook Week at Two Scrapbook Friends

The lovely ladies at Two Scrapbook Friends hosted a week long online celebration for National Scrapbook Day. Each day from Monday until Saturday challenges were posted in the forum. There were a lot of fabulous challenges. Thankfully they allowed us to combine challenges, so I was able to get more done.

In addition to the challenges below, I completed the following non layout/card challenges:
Carolyn's Before and After challenge ~ see earlier post
Karan's Gallery Crawl
Patti's Word Scramble

All Of Us: I purchased this little mini kit at Two Scrapbook Friends for this challenge. Everything that I used on the layout was in the kit except for the title "All Of Us" which is a Soft Spoken embellishment and the marker I used for the doodling and journaling. The pictures are of us in front of Turtle Jack's on Easter Sunday.

Challenges: Karan's Product challenge

Happy Birthday Card: A fun little card using orange and lime green (which are the favourite colours of Patti from The Scrapping Nook).  I love that little stamp!!!

Challenges: Laura's Orange challenge
*** I combined this with a challenge for Patti's birthday crop at The Scrapping Nook. 

O' Canada: This is a patriotic Canadian layout about why I'm proud to be Canadian. I forgot to note the paper manufacturer before gluing it down. I think if might be Karen Foster, but I could be mistaken.

Challenges: Cheryl's Oh Canada

Easter '09: I used Reminisce Easter papers for this layout and alphabet stickers from American Crafts. I love these photos of my brother Stephen with my children at Easter.

Challenges: Patti's 8675-309 challlenge

Spring Bling Card: I used Kaisercraft papers and bling to create this card. I added some flowers from my stash and used my Fiskars border punch.

Challenges: Joanne's Spring Bling challenge

I Wish I Wish To Be A Fish: I love the Snorkel line from Cosmo Cricket - the bright colours, the little fish -- cute cute cute!!!!!  I outlined some of the fish with my gold glitter pen. I added Stickles in Crystal and Tiara to the circles. I also used Stix2 Seed Beads and Fine Glitter on some of the circle. 

Challenges: Laura's Glittery challenge
Patti's Beach challenge
Carolyn's Circle challenge
*** I combined this challenge with the Product Highlight at The Scrapping Turtle because it uses Stix2.

If I Could: Paper from Pink Paislee, Jillibean Soup and KI Memories. I added a chipboard arrow, chipboard brackets, chipboard letters (Thickers) and a chipboard clock (Heidi Swapp).

Challenges: Karan's Chipboard challenge
Joanne's Number challenge
Karan's Time challenge

Sweet: I used purple (my favourite colour) Daisy Bucket papers for this layout. I added faux stitching around the outside of the layout, around the photo mat and around the circles. I used Bazzill In Stitch'z to sew the word Sweet.

Challenges: Carolyn's Favourite Colour challenge
Laura's Sketch challenge
Patti's Stitch Me I'm Yours challenge

Family Thing: Paper is from We R Memory Keepers Grandma's Kitchen and Sassafras Lass Bungle Jungle. I added Thickers, a Quickutz vine border, and flowers from my stash. Love this photo of Sara demonstrating one of our family traits.

Challenges: Karan's Distressing challenge
Karan's Sketch challenge
Cheryl's Quirky Habit challenge

Laugh: I used the wonderful Jillibean Soup papers and a We R Memory Keepers Pinwheel paper to create this layout based on Laura's sketch. I made the pinwheels into flowers and used the word Laugh for my title.

Challenges: Laura's Sketch challenge
Patti's Word Specific challenge
Joanne's Pinwheel challenge

You Hold The Key To My Heart: I wasn't able to use any patterned paper on this one so everything is cardstock. I dressed it up by using several of my Fiskars border punches. I added the metal key, heart and photo corners. The photo was a poor quality one that I lightened, but it is still grainy and the colours are off.

Challenges: Patti's It's All Metalistic challenge
Cheryl's Patterned Paper Be Gone challenge
Laura's Bad Photo challenge

My Love 4 U Is Outta This World: I used two Quickutz dies on this one - Saturn and Rocket Ship. I also used a Daisy Bucket stamp for the world, some brads, chipboard stars, two different fonts from Thickers, a foam star stamp, and lots of circles, rings and squares.

Challenges:  Carolyn's Square challenge
Patti's Stash It challenge
Patti's Solar System challenge

Mom's Day Cards: The card on the left was embossed with my new Quickutz Embossing Folder and coloured with a Copic marker. The card on the right was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder and chalked with Colorbox Chalk Ink.

Challenges: Laura's Card Sketch challenge
Laura's Embossing challenge
