ScrapFIT Workout #3 and Treasured Scrapbooking September Debut'

Hey yall! Can you believe September is here??? I sure can't! August just flew by for me!!! Well, I have some new stuff to share with yall today. First, we have another fun workout challenge for you at ScrapFIT with a great prize up for grabs. Here is the link for you:


Here is the layout I created for the challenge. These pix our from my parents recent cruise to Cozumel. They visited some Mayan Ruins while they were there. I used Plantin' Schoolbook to cut my circle. The border around the page was created with the Martha Stewart Loop Punch Around the Page system. The challenge required us to 'hide' our journaling. On the right, you will see three ribbon tabs. If you pull on the middle one, a tag with my journaling comes out. I will post a pic of that too. The large star is chipboard from 7 Gypsies. The small stars are rub on's from American Crafts. Here it is:

Here is the tag pulled out....

A new month also always means new stuff to debut for Treasured Scrapbooking!!! Whoo hoo! Do go on over today and check out all of the DT's awesome stuff! You will want to look under 'September 2009.'


So, I wanted to share with yall what I have done for this month. First, each month we are to create a original layout and coordinating sketch with the kit we are assigned. This month I have Kit #2. Here is my sketch:

"These Everyday Memories"
This is my layout for the first of the month. I had so much fun working with the kit this month. I used my Cricut and the Plantin' Schoolbook cartridge to cut out the circle. I also brought in some stitching.

Next, each month as a DT member, we are to post a challenge for the members of the forum. This month I used a fun little holiday coming up this month for my inspiration. September 10th is 'Swap Ideas Day.' For this challenge, you go into the gallery at TS and find a layout, card, or altered project to lift. But, you must 'swap' something out about the page. Let's say the layout you are lifting uses ribbon, well you could 'swap' that out and use twine (jute). Or let's say the layout you are lifting has one large 5x7 picture, you can 'swap' that out for two pix. Or you could even pm the person of who you are lifting and ask them an idea of what they could swap out for the project. I chose to lift ksuscrapper's 'Forbidden Love' layout. Here is the link to her page:

Now, I lifted not only the layout, but also the idea. The moment I saw this layout, I fell in love. I LOVE Spongebob Squarepants! LOL. I know, I know, but I can't help it! It is just so addicting. So I chose to lift her idea, with permission of course, on using Spongebob pix. I printed the picture onto white card stock. I had never tried this before, but have seen it and always wanted to try. I like the effect it gives. It really gives the photo some texture. Now, for the 'swap' part, I decided to swap out several things. I swapped out the title, used machine stitching instead of hand stitching, added some different embellishments, and used a different shaped arrow. Here is my layout..."Spongy Love"

Okie dokie, that is all for me today. I hope you all have a wonderful day! Do go on over to Treasured Scrapbooking to join in on the challenges this month! They are always so much fun and really get the creativity going. As always, thanks for stopping by! Happy Scrappin'!!!
Pin It!
