Welcome Martha & Michelle!

Click HERE for our current challenge!

Hi everyone! I made the decision several weeks ago to increase the number of designers on our team, and I'm so happy to introduce you to our two newest DT members, Martha and Michelle! These talented ladies will begin creating with us in LTSCB #31, our next challenge which will launch on June 2nd. We're so excited they've joined us and we hope you will come back to play and check out their creations!

Without further ado, heeeeeeere's...


Hello everyone! My name is Martha, I'm from Alberta, Canada, I'm married to the love of my life who is very supportive of my very expensive hobby! I have two beautiful babies my son Sebastian and my daughter Trinity. I have dabbled in scrapbooking/card making since I was about sixteen, but I really got serious about it after I had my daughter 15wks early, she was such a miracle that I wanted to document her journey thru the Neo Natal Intensive Care Unit. After that I started making very simple cards that would take me hours to make, but the look of pure joy that people give you after receiving a handmade card is worth every second! I bought my first four copics after stumbling upon a beginners copic coloring class while I was shopping at my local scrapbook store....and the rest is as they say history! So I hope you enjoy my creations and pop on by my blog for a visit. You can find it here http://createwithmarthajane.blogspot.ca

and 


Hello everyone - lovely to meet you....
I live in Buxton but I am originally from Liverpool.  I moved to Buxton in 2010.
I have an 8 year old son called Brandon and a partner called Col who I have been with for 22 years.
I started crafting about 2007.  I started scrapbooking and then discovered cardmaking and haven't looked back.  Like most crafters though I cross stitched for years before discovering papercrafts.
I'm lucky enough to have my own craft room and under my craft table sleeps my cat Suki who is 21 years old and who is currently luxuriating in this wonderful weather we are having.
I'm really looking forward to working alongside everyone.
Michelle x


Welcome aboard, ladies! We're super stoked that you're part of our team and look forward to lots of fun crafting together!

Hugs,
Leslie & the DT

LTSCB #30 - Anything Goes!

Hi everyone and welcome back to the Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog! Thanks to those who played with us in our "Party Bingo!" challenge that just ended! We absolutely loved seeing your amazing creations and feel very privileged, although there were only a few entries, that your projects were created with our challenge in mind! :) Be sure to check back tomorrow for our Winners and Tina's DT Favorites (Top 5)!

Want to guest design for Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog? We'd love for you to be in our Guest Designer Spotlight! See the tab above for all the details. Just add GDT after your name when you link up and you'll be entered into 'the pool' from which two lucky crafters will be picked to guest design for us each month (that's two challenges). Remember, with the newest InLinkz updates, you'll need to change the link name to your name when linking up so that your name appears under the thumbnail rather than the name of your project link, then add GDT after your name.

Our theme this time is...
Anything Goes!

We challenge you to create any type of project you want, as long as it's decent! ;)
And you can use any rubber/clear or digital stamp you want!
[That means we need to see STAMPING on your project!]

Prize: Stamp set and 6x6 pad of winner's choice
