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.

the challenge....

Thanks for joining us for another Scrap and Stamp challenge! Is it feeling like fall where you all are? It does here in the mornings and then all of a sudden it is hot again! Maybe soon it will actually feel that way all day.

I think Patricia's sketch from the week before last may have been a little intimidating? Or was everyone just super busy? I loved this sketch and you will be seeing a page from me soon, I finally had a chance to play!! The winner is Sally with this perfect fall page. I just love the pumpkins in the corner. Please email me Sally and I will let you know how to claim your prize. Congrats!!

Our sponsor this week is Hambo Stamps! Be sure to check out the Hambo store to see what all they have to offer. I love their rubber stamps and they have some super cute digis also. So hop over to Hambo Stamps and have a look. The winner will receive a $15 gift certificate!

We want you to get messy this week and pull out those paints. The challenge is to use paint as a photo border. Either on your photo or around them, its up to you. Don't forget to use at least one stamp too. Now lets check out what the design team came up with this week.





We hope you will join us again. You have 2 weeks to enter this challenge. You still have a week left to get in to the drawing for last weeks prize too.
