Photography Challenge Winner 11.21.2011 - 11.27.2011

 

Congrats to gardencat the winner of last week's challenge, "Black and White."  A $5 credit to the Two Peas store has been applied to your account and will automatically apply itself against your next order on the third check-out page!

From gardencat, "I decided to drive out this afternoon, on a lovely and unseasonably warm November day, just to look for things that would make interesting photos and to practice with my new lenses. This house looked like a perfect subject for the black and white challenge. I took this photo using the monochrome style setting on my camera and then tweaked a little to increase contrast in photoshop."

This week's challenge? "Blessings" with Margie!

Finally Friday: You are Wonderful

So excited to share another Finally Friday video with you! A few things to note when watching the video.. 

I changed the color of the Fabric paper with misting, and I promise it looks closer to the pictures I took, and not the garish florescent color it looks on the video ;) 

Also? That's not nail polish on my thumb, it's from squishing my thumb in a door jam :( 

Happy Friday, hope you enjoy the video! 

Challenge: Add a little sparkle to your next card with glitter! Share it with us in the member gallery this next week, making sure to check the challenge checkbox.

Challenge

Online Crop Challenge with Jill Sprott

Happy Sunday! Welcome to day three of the Garden Girl online crop!  Hopefully you have found the time this weekend to chat it up on the message board and to play along with our challenges; if not, then today’s challenge is all about finding the time to indulge in some crafty little mischief.  

It’s a can-do challenge that is perfect for this time of year: create a holiday card for any November or December holiday! 

Here's my take on the challenge:

This came together in just a few minutes, so no matter how busy you may be, this challenge may be just what you need to give you a crafty fix in the midst of your holiday preparations.

Just think of the possibilities! Whether it’s a thoughtful “thank you” to someone special, just in time for Thanksgiving...

(Melinda Spinks)

(chicscrapper29)

...your best wishes for a happy Hanukkah,

(iheartart)

...a festive Christmas greeting,

(Lucy Abrams)

(HeidiVL)

...or even a card celebrating the new year,

(nsuzy)

(cathugger)

...a holiday card is the perfect way to invest a few minutes this week creating something to share with someone else (including the community at Two Peas). Heck, you can even create a "good luck" card for Black Friday! 

To participate in this challenge, create a holiday card and upload a photo of it to the gallery by Sunday, November 27, by midnight CST. One entry per person please.  Make sure to check the correct challenge box under "member challenges" when uploading your challenge. One winner will be selected to win a fabulous prize from Two Peas (make sure your contact information is updated)! The winner will be announced the following Monday on the GG Board.  Have fun!

Challenge

Online Crop Challenge w/Jen Chesnick

Good Morning Peas! My challenge for you today is to use one of my favorite items in my stash: tags.  Lately I seem to be reaching for  them more and more! They are versatile and seem to never go out of style.  You can use them on pages, make them into mini albums, as a stand alone tag and so much more.  

I found several examples in the member gallery for your inspiration!

Online Crop Challenge w/Jen Martakis

My challenge to you revolves around Thanksgiving. It's that time of year when we (in the US) gather together and think about everything we are grateful for. Traditionally, we think about the "big" things in our lives, like our families and friends. How about a challenge to scrap about the "little" things we're thankful to have? It can be serious or silly, full of photos or even no photos like mine. Just document some of the things in life you wouldn't want to live without.

 

 

I did this challenge a couple of years ago but thought it was a really fun one. I hope you don't mind that I do it again. ;)

Finally Friday with Julie Campbell: Holiday Joy Card

In this Finally Friday tutorial, I'll show you how to make a simple circular card. I used a digital die-cut image from Two Peas, but you could also use metal dies or even trace a circular object to create a similar card style. 

Your challenge: Create circle card and share it in the gallery! Simply check the challenge checkbox during upload. Enjoy!

Weekly Challenge Winner 11.11.2011 - 11.17.2011

Congrats to jennimoc, the winner of last week's challenge from Lisa to scrap a timeline!  A $5 credit will be applied to your account shortly for the next time you place an order at Two Peas!

This week's challenge comes from Jill, "This is the time a year when we are most aware of all that there is to be thankful for in life. Why not take the time to translate that sense of gratitude to a layout


On this page, which documents not only my "gratitudes" but also my 11:11 on 11/11/11 photos, I took a listing approach, literally counting my blessings. Feel free to riff on the design for your own page, or to come up with your own approach. The point is that you set aside a moment to reflect on all that you are grateful for and let your words flow from the heart. In doing so, you will be creating a kind of self-portrait that reveals what matters most to you."

Finally Friday: Holiday Tree Card

 

It's FINALLY FRIDAY!! Yay!

I've been in the holiday spirit this past week so it was only fitting to create a little Christmas card! I matched up BasicGrey's Oxford collection with a kraft doilie and some Hero Arts stamps. And the fun part--I stamped my evergreen tree on canvas! Super fun!


Your challenge: Use fabric on your card! Find a new use for it or try a new technique you've been dying to do!

Finally Friday: Have a Wonderfully Happy Holiday

Finally Friday Video: Have a Wonderfully Happy Holiday

Hey guys! So happy to do another Finally Friday card and video for you :) 
I know you guys have mentioned the noisy feedback in the video, and I'm working on it and promise for my next video it will be improved, bear with me for today! 

I am slightly obsessed with embossing, and used it for the sentiment on my card. I then ran a Copic marker over it to change the color. 

I also added dimensional pearls to the snowflakes. 

My challenge is to get started on your Christmas cards! Try the same card with traditional colors, and then go ahead and make another with different colors if you like.
