Croppin' At IASC

Hey guys! Happy Friday! Whoo hoo! TGIF! I am bloggin' super early this morning. I am off to Gatlinburg today. Brandon and I decided to take a mini vacay before continuing on home to PA. I am super excited!!!

But first, I wanted to share a couple of projects with you. This weekend we are croppin' at In A Scrap Creations. I created 2 challenges for the crop.

First up, a 'Birthstone' Challenge. This is a 'birthday' crop, so I centered my challenges around that. For this challenge, all you have to do is create a layout using the color of your birthstone. For example, my birthstone is a pink color. So, I created this page with mainly pinks.

"Friends Forever"
This is me and my Mom. She truly is my very BEST friend!!!!

I did a little paper weaving on this one. I usually get so frustrated with paper weaving, but this time, it was actually fun! :) I turned up the edges on the ends of the strips for some added dimension.

I created these flowers with a freebie pattern from one of my favorite blogs, My Scrap Chick.
I absolutely love their patterns over there! Always so fabulous! They give away a Freebie each week, so be sure to sign up while you are over there.

Second, I am hosting a altered project crop challenge. I found the instructions on making these paper cones at Splitcoast Stampers and thought they would make fabulous party favors! They are so easy and fun to make! This one is for my nephew, Carter. His bday is next month. He chose the paper he wanted me to use. I filled the cone with his favorite candies.

I used a 'make a wish' stamp and hand cut out one of the little 'monsters' for the front.

If you would like to join us for the crop, here is the direct link to the challenges for ya! We'd love to see you there! :)

Happy Scrappin'!
Pin It!
