The Rules...

We love to see all of your beautiful creations but to be in for the prize drawing it must be a scrapbook layout or mini album. After all that is what we are about here. We all love to stamp on our cards but sometimes we forget to use them on our layouts and other projects. They are cheap embellishments and plentiful after all. You are welcome to combine our challenge with others. Happy Crafting!

Coloring paper with fabric dye

Here is a fast and fun techinque tutorial by Jowlina.  We hope you will give it a try and let us know what you think.  It goes along with this weeks challenge!

1. Mix fabric dye with water in a spray bottle and mix well by shaking.
2.  Spray your paper liberally with the dye and leave to dry naturally or dry using your heat gun.
3. Cut your paper and use on your project.

*avoid cutting wet paper as it will tear – so let it dry totally!

Try coloureing lace, flowers or ribbons to match your paper for a unified look on your projects
Here is the finished project! 

Thanks so much Jowilna!  I can't wait to try it myself.

the challenge...

Thanks for joining us for another Scrap and Stamp challenge. A big thanks to Lisa for covering for me the last several weeks. I have gotten so much done. I will be catching up on emails in the next couple of days.

It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is almost here. Where has the year gone? Due to the upcoming holiday we will be taking next week off to spend with our families so you will have extra time to play along with this challenge. Our next challenge is will be posted on Dec. 4th.

The winner of the sketch challenge is Sarah T. Congrats email me and I will let you know how to claim your prize.

The challenge is to color with fabric dye. You can color paper, cardstock, lace, fabric or flowers and use it on your layout. Be sure to use at least one stamp too. If you need some inspiration for this please check our the tutorial in the previous post by Jowilna!

We will have an update with the sponsor and prize soon, there was a last minute change in plans.  But there will be something I promise.

Now lets check out the design teams layouts!

We hope you will play along with us. Happy Crafting!
