"Shaker Box" Challenge -July 12-19

Here we go with another week of challenging projects. Well, it will be challenging for some. But for some of you ...I am sure you have already created this project or researched it and planned to make it. Well, if so, now is the time to give it a try. For those of you that have already made one, try putting another spin on it. If you made a layout before....this time make a gift box or a card using the same technique. Either way you decide to make it.... send us a copy of your project to the g-mail account and let us see what you made. A couple of Youtube videos if you need help in making the shaker card/box. Thank you ChicnScratch or you can and you can also try this one.

These are the design team take on this project.....Thanks for looking .......

Announcement : ATC "Sista" Swap

Interested in a Sista Artist Trading Card (ATC) Swap? We are trying to get a group of ladies interested in participating in the swap to provide a little more information about each other. And at the same time, the cards provide a sample of the artistic talent of the creator. ScrapCheryl will host the Swap.

  • The ATC's will contain information about you that you don’t mind sharing.
  • The ATC card size must be at least 2 ¼ inches tall and 3 ½ inches long but no larger than 3 x 5. (I have created several sizes of rolodex cards using my Cricut and Graphically Speaking, so I can send you settings to make your cutting tasks easier if you have that cart.)
  • You must incorporate a small picture of yourself (to put a face with a screen name and artwork, so to speak!), your MB screen name and things you choose to share about yourself. Sometimes including a birth date, email address, even home address results in a nice RAK surprise greeting from participants in ATC swaps.

We will provide other details once we find out if we have enough people to participate.

If you are interested, send an email to the Sistas gmail account-( ) to ATTN: ScrapCheryl. The email should contain your Name, Address, Phone number, email address and preferred Artist Trading Card size. As stated before ....More information will be provided later, once we find out how many people are interested in the swap......

Challnge #5-"Layering"- July 6-12, 2009

Wow, the Design Team" have really been doing a splendid job with the challenges each week displaying the different techniques in Scrapbooking. "Great Job", Ladies. This week we decided to use the "layering Technique". There are so may cartridges that use the layering technique and sometimes all of those pieces can be somewhat intimidating. The process only looks difficult.... not only is it fun to's quite easy. The different color paper for all of the pieces can be placed on the mat at once ...and if you are using the "E" the blade can be moved to each color and cut...Then all of your pieces are cut at once and you can put the pieces together. A tip in applying the layers.....Start with the Shadow or Blackout piece.

Take a look at some of the projects the DT put together. You'll find this technique just as fun to do as we did......Enjoy ladies.
