Here's one of my favorites!  It's by Tracy Feely and it's the Wednesday, September 13 Stash Challenge...
Tracy says "I want you to really dig into your stash for this challenge. Here's a list of items you can use from your stash. You can use as many as you like but you have to use at least 4 from the list. And be sure and list which items you used.
Stash items:
Modeling paste/texture paste
Scrap paper
Washi Tape
Die cuts
I've used all of these on my layout.
So use up that stash! You have til the end of the month to enter!"

Happy Scrapping everyone!!! Let's use up that stash!!!

The Celebration Continues!

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!  And for those from the US, Happy Labor Day! 

We are in the midst of our Birthday Celebration with challenges, bingo game, Steal the Rak and of course all our daily challenges as well!  Be sure to come join us for more fun and games in the forum at Creative Inspiration Forum.

Today I'm sharing the Sunday 9/3 Card Sketch.  Bev really does amazing sketches!  And of course this one's no different...

Design Team Member Candy Cheleppy took this card sketch to a whole new level!  In Australia, Sunday September 3rd was Father's Day and she decided to challenge herself to take this beautiful sketch and make it into a masculine card.
I'd say she did an amazing job!!!  Wouldn't you?! 

So what will YOU do with Bev's sketch and Candy's example?  Show us your version in the forum!

Happy Cardmaking!
