Challenge # 179 - Fancy Folds

Good morning followers and visitors!  Hopefully  no one has just turned completely into a puddle during this crazy heatwave.  It does seem like the end MAY be in sight, and temps should be getting a little more comfortable.  Fingers crossed!

We are pleased to welcome back Mayzy Art as our sponsor this fortnight.  Mayzy is offering up a $15 GV to the MayzyArt Store as a prize to our winner! 

MayzyArt is a new digital stamp location with a growing collection of fun stamps for use in scrapbooking and papercraft projects.  MayzyArt’s goal is to provide unique, imaginative and affordable stamps.  For updates on the newest stamps and sales, and examples of great projects done by MayzyArt customers visit

"You gotta know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em".  The challenge this week is "Fancy Folds" - Easel cards, step cards, you name it, but you must make a project with more than one fold.

Here are some examples from the team, using Mayzy Images.


Show us some of your finest and fanciest folding work, and join the challenge for a chance at a wonderful prize.

Challenge # 178 - Shape Up!

Happy 4th of July weekend!  It's always nice when a holiday falls near the end of the week as it often means a nice long weekend for a lot of people.  We hope everyone has gotten their fill of fireworks, parades, band music, and BBQ.  We also hope everyone is ready to play along with our brand new challenge!
We are always pleased to welcome back our fabulous sponsor, Simply B Stamps!

Here's a little about the company in owner Betty's own words:

"Simply Betty Stamps was born around the same time my little guy was born.  Having had to close down my actual scrapbook and rubber stamp store due to his early arrival I was stuck at home with nothing to do.  I started blogging and learned about digis, and thought... hey I can draw!  I wanted to work, but didn't want to do the 9-5 nor leave my baby, so...Simply Betty Stamps came about.  I have tend to put out what is close to me and my heart, my kids!  My teens as well as my Bettys and Judes are inspired by my kids shenanigans and that of my own!  I hope to inspire as well as learn from others in this crafty community."

Betty has generously offered our winner a $15 gift voucher to her online shop!  You can find all her fun and funky images HERE!  Whether you love digis, rubber, or clear stamps, Betty has an eclectic mix that's sure to please the "quirk in you"!

The challenge for this fortnight is to "Shape Up".  No, we don't want you to go on a diet or start working out!  It just means no square or rectangular cards.  FAR easier than getting in actual shape, right?!  

Here's how the team worked it out, using images provided by Simply B Stamps:




So, throw on some sweats, and show us some "outside the box" creations!
