Happy Monday to everyone. I hope you had a very scrappy weekend. I spent my weekend with my family at 2 football games. My son's football team is currently 3 & 0. I am hoping we make it to the superbowl. He played very well, and we are of course looking forward to our next game this Saturday at 4pm.

I had so much fun playing this guessing game with you ladies. We had three ladies get it right. And Bailey picked our winner.

Congrats to Cheryl Lane please email ( me your address so I can get that out to you :)

Love my Shimmerz

Good day ladies, by now I am sure you've figured out I love the paint splatter technique. It adds instant interest and artistic quality to any project.

Here I splattered Blue By You Pearlz, Sunset Strip Vibez, & Licorice Spritz on the background of my kraft paper.

On this layout I sprayed Sunset Strip Vibez on the background, and RazzleDazzle Berry Vibez on the kraft envelope, along with a little Licorice Spritz. My Prima flower was enhanced with RazzleDazzle Berry Vibez as well. And the tree on this layout cut from my cricut machine (stretch your imagination cartridge) and painted with Peas B Mine Pearlz. The color is amazing on this tree.


Happy Scrapping ladies!!

Cramfest Home Ec Class

Good Afternoon, and welcome to Scrap U's home economics course. As many of us of know Home Ec can consist of many things, such as sewing, crafts, cooking, etc.
This year I would like us to focus on FASHION.
Each day we all make a conscience FASHION decision. Whether you consider yourself to be a fashionista or just a plain Jane, we all have a sense of personal style. Fashion is All about texture, colors, and freedom of expression. And in this year's Home Ec class we will focus on just that, our individual sense of style.

For example: My personal sense of style is modern eclectic, with a bit of vintage flair, and very clean lines. I am not afraid of color and have a very colorful wardrobe, I love to accessories, I have a lot of handbags, & shoes to accommodate them. This translates also into my Scrappy Style, I love to bright bold colors, mixing modern & vintage patterns, & I love to embellish.
In my layout I used tons of fabric (felt flowers, fabric leaves, lace border, canvas tag) to create lots of dimension and texture. I have a stitched border, pearls & a string of bling as my sparkle on this layout. The Prima flower centers, lace border, & kraft envelope add the perfect amount of vintage vibe to the layout.

Your assignment is to create a layout based on your own personal style. I want to see YOU reflected in this layout (this doesn't mean you have to scrap yourself). Are you edgy meets Audrey Hepburn's classic elegance, or are you contemporary/traditional like Mrs. Kelly Ripa?
Go for it ladies, let's see you work it!!
- Stitching: faux, machine (any kind will do)
- Fabric (of any kind)
- bling/sparkle
All layouts for this challenge need to be newly created for this challenge. You need to upload them to the correct gallery folder by Sunday August 29nd at midnight PST. The gallery folder "Week 3-Taj's Class".
Any layouts not in the correct gallery by the due date will not be graded.

ScrapbookDeals4U August 15th Ad Challenge

And I was immediately inspired by the Modern rustic,vintage vibe and style of the room.

- use a soft color palette of your choice
- use atleast 2 flowers

I am excited about this weeks Ad Challenge I really hope it get's us scrapping the men in our lives in a whole new way. I can't wait to see what you create!! Happy Scrapping girls!!
