Welcome Debi!

Click HERE for our current challenge!

Hi everyone! I've popped in this morning to introduce our newest DT member, Debi, who will begin creating with us in LTSCB #33, our next challenge that will launch on July 7th! Debi is a super talented designer and we're stoked that she has joined our team! Check out her creations on her blog That Might Look Good on a Card.

Without further ado, heeeeeere's Debi...



Hi!  My name is Debi and I am so excited to be joining the wonderful Design Team here at Love to Scrap.  My DH and I are both retired and live in SE Pennsylvania.  We have 2 grown children, 5 grandchildren and beautiful great granddaughter who was born in February.  I am a very young great-nana!  If you follow my blog, you'll see pictures of Laila now and then.

One Saturday, almost 5 years ago, I went to a local Christmas Bazaar and Craft show.   A woman had the most beautiful display of handmade cards. There was one card in particular, with an origami folded Christmas tree, that I just loved. When I asked the price, she said they weren't for sale but she was having a workshop and I could come and learn how to make all the cards displayed. I quickly discovered not only what a fun hobby stamping is, but I also found a whole group of new friends and wonderful people who love stamping and papercrafting as much as I do. 


Mostly, I make cards with an occasional odd project, especially when my grandsons are here.  I am intrigued by different techniques and folds, love embossing folders and fussy cutting.  Many of my cards are donated to Operation Write Home and Send a Smile 4 Kids. You might find me at an Heirloom or Stamp Scrap Art Tour stamping show teaching the Make n Takes at a friend's CTMH booth, which I thoroughly enjoy.  It's so much fun meeting fellow stampers and exchanging tips and tricks.   I also teach occasional classes for a group of Red Hatters - feathers, bling and tons of fun!  I am currently on the DT at Tuesday Throwdown, and previously served on the DT at Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I also enjoy crocheting and baking, so don't be surprised to see some of those projects on my blog, too.



Welcome aboard, Debi! Again, we're so happy you've joined our team and look forward to lots of fun crafting together!

Hugs,
Leslie & the DT

LTSCB #32 - Holey Cardstock!

Hi everyone and welcome back to the Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog! Thanks to everyone who played with us in our "Mind Your Banners!" challenge that just ended! We absolutely loved seeing all your amazing creations! Be sure to check back tomorrow for our Winners and Cathy'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...
Holey Cardstock!

We challenge you to create a project with at least one hole so your stamping shows through!  The hole(s) can be any shape and can be punched, die cut or hand cut!
And you can use any rubber/clear or digital stamp you want!
[That means we need to see STAMPING on your project!]
