Crafts you dabble in: I don't "Dabble" in any crafts I dive in head first and Hope I can swim!! I am a sewing whore and a scrapping hooker! I also freehand paint huge 6FT rubber ducky murals on my bathroom walls, and decorate my house like there is NO tomorrow!
Favorite color(s): I am not color biased! I love em all! OK well purple is not my best friend!
Do you have a room of crap, a closet of crap or a shelf of crap? I have 3 plastic dressers and half a room of crap!
What supply do you have the most of? Paper! I could paper my entire house and still have enough to scrap 1000 pages!
What supply do you hoard the most? My glue runner refills I am afraid I will run out so I send my hubby out at 3am to buy 10 more....you know...JUST IN CASE!
What brand do you use the most? Hmmm.....It used to be Crate Paper but now its more Cosmo Cricket
What brand do you own the most of but use the least? I think Basic Grey
Keep your scraps or throw them away? I have been keeping them BUT when it filled an entire box I decided maybe its not worth it. So now I give them to my boys and let them go to town with expensive and beautiful paper while I try not to cringe like they are writing on ME!
Organized or perfectly chaotic? So chaotic its pathetic man!
Crafting motto? NO RULES
Create with friends or alone? I am a LONE scrapper, but I do love cropping!
What supply do you need a challenge for so that you will use it up? OMG Probably my early on BRAD issues!

Challenge #32: Leave your mark

I mentioned in the last post that we are doing something here that we have never done before. Sure we have done a rak or 2 with different things but nothing that you could hoard in your stash such as scrap supplies...so with that being said....for all you faithful particpants that have taken this crazy ride with us we are offering you not only one but 2 $15 gift certificates to Noel Mignon Scrap Shop. Noel was gracious enough to donate the GC"s and we cannot thank her enough. She puts together the most fabulous kits around that are jammed packed full of scrappy goodies plus she has a store for you to shop in if kits aren't your thing. We figured since February you have been working hard on depleating your stash of stuff so why not reward yourself with some new goodies...One of the GC's will be given away for this challenge and one for the October 1st challenge. the winner for this challenge will be announced on September 30th SO MAKE SURE YOU GET THEM IN BEFORE SEPT 30th by 8 CST

Here is how you can win.
post the SYC blinkie on your blog (by grabing it from the sidebar on the right...you might have to scroll down a bit
and participate in this challenge

good luck girls and on with this weeks challenge:

This week we want to leave our mark....yes my dear challenge lovers we need to break out those markers, pens, pencils, crayons whatever you have
use them to color in something on your page or make your own embellishments using these supplies. If you are not a big fan of your handwriting and you use the computer or stamps or your dymo label for your journaling here is your chance. Handwriting by you will be treasured by someone in the future. That is your challenge....

Queen Rose's:

i love the way this journaling technique looks. i've seen it a million times, so i don't know where credit is due. i finally got the nerve to try it about a month ago in a mini i did.

i drew the wavy lines and then wrote the message in regular pencil. colored in the letters with colored pencils, then traced with an AC Slick Writer. the Slick Writer also worked great on the Jenni Bowlin journal sticker. a nice portion of neglected buttons finally found a home as well!

also, here's one full page of this technique that i did in that mini i referenced:

I used the best white pen around (I've tried them all) the Uniball Signo to journal in swirls.


i actually did a mini using SU markers, AC slick writers and metallic pens
here is some of the pages. You can see the full book if you choose here or here.


Hi There! Better late then never- Here is my contribution.. I took it literally and played around with actually using the ink markers as part of my layout! :)

make sure you leave us a comment int he comment section on the blog and a link with your layout to either your blog or an online gallery so we can find it and make sure you get your entry for the RAK this month. Good Luck girls!

Challenge #31: My product is older than yours

Crap...that's what this site is about. We've been using the more 'up to date items' in the past challenges, but now it's time to pull out the stuff in the bins that didn't sell at the lss garage sale back in 2002. You know: the tags, the MAMBI stick figure stickers, the Mrs. Grossman's chili pepper stickers, the CM borders, etc. Bust 'em out and use them today's style.

Let's see what you can create! Whoever has the oldest item will not win a darn thing except the feeling of fulfillment for using something you never thought you would.

Don't forget to leave a link to your blog or your gallery so that we can leave some love! if you just post your picture, we can't come visit you! and that would make me sad if nobody came to visit to comment on my crap :(

if you're in the hurricane, please stay safe and use some of that nervous energy to get creative!

Queen Rose's:

Using up your old stuff can be fun when you are making cards...most people you are giving them to don't know the "age" of your embellies. These were made from Current stickers that I swear I have had since the 90s and an old as time sheet of Lil Davis Tag Stickers.

well, my product is not that old...i have the KI Memories ribbon clip and the Making Memories metal flower tucked behind the picture. that's all i could dig up!
These folded silk flowers are many years old!

Remember this week's challenge will run until September 15th, then we'll post the second challenge for September. That should give you plenty of time to dig out the photo anchors and the MME Frame-Ups.
