"Find The Hidden Treasure" Blog Hop!

Hi everyone! This is another one of the few months throughout the year with five Mondays, so since we have a week between challenges, let's rev it up a bit! The Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog design team is excited to bring you our "Find The Hidden Treasure" Blog Hop! We're being sponsored by Pink Gem Designs so come hop with us for a chance to win 2 single Pink Gem Designs images! How awesome is that?!

Pink Gem Designs is based in Stourport on Severn, Worcestershire UK.

Began trading in Nov. 2008 to design cute and whimsical craft stamps in  clear polymer. As digi products became more popular Pink Gem Designs also started to produce digital stamps and other digital products such as downloadable papers, clip art etc.


Now comes the fun... there are three gems hidden somewhere on our blogs. As you hop, look on each design team member's blog to find a hidden gem and be sure to leave some love while you're there! Once you have found all three gems, you'll need to email the locations where you found the gems (blog names and blog links) to ltscb@mail.com. All the correct guesses will be entered into the drawing for the Pink Gems Designs images!

The LTSCB designers are using gemstones on our inspiration projects. Everyone participating in the blog hop is invited to link up a project using gemstones for an EXTRA entry into the drawing! **Be sure to use the same email address to email your guesses that you use to link up your project so we can make sure you're given two entries into the drawing!**

Are you ready for some inspiration from our amazing design team?! Each designer is proudly showcasing a project created with an amazing Pink Gem Designs image!

Here are your blog hop stops:



We hope you enjoy the hop and if you get lost along the way, you can always come back here for the line-up to get you back on track! Do be sure to check out all the goodies over at Pink Gem Designs - you'll be in pink gem heaven! Another huge thanks to them for this sponsorship!

This blog hop and challenge will run for one week, ending on September 6th at 6:00 PM EST. Be sure to check back with us on September 9th for the winner of the Pink Gem Designs images!

Big hugs,
Leslie & the DT

Welcome Shaindel, Irena and Robin!

Hi everyone! I'm so stoked to introduce you to our newest designers - Shaindel, Irena and Robin! These ladies are uber talented and we are happy beyond measure to call them our teammies! Here they are...

Shaindel

Hello, everyone! I'm Shaindel: translator, interpreter and aspiring crafter, chef and photographer..! I have tons of ideas on my mind and I love to see them come true. I love photography, cooking, baking, cake decorating, stamping and paper crafting. I'm 30 years old and although I'm Venezuelan-born, I've been living near Milan (ITA) for the past 3 1/2 years with my husband, our dogs and his cat.

I'm so happy to be joining the wonderful ladies of the LTSCB DT, thank you Leslie for the opportunity!!
XOXO
Shaindel



Irena
Blog - Irena's Art

Hello!
My name is Irena and I am from the town of DobrichBulgaria. I am happily married to my best friend. I am a mother of two grown-up daughters and one son. I have a granddaughter and she takes me back in time to motherhood in the sweetest way.
I feel free to call myself an artist, because I'm very artistic and I enjoy to practice this art ;)
I still wonder whether to call my art hobby or lifestyle.
I started with cards at the end of 2013. In the fall of 2014 I found mix media and since then it remains my preferred style. Although the cards will always have that special place on my work table. I still trying different techniques and in most cases I learn from other masters.
I create. I’m looking for stories in everything. Sometimes I do found it and sometimes – did not ... but all the time I realy enjoy crafting.
It is a big honor for me to be a part of Love to Scrap Challenge blog DT.
Hugs
Irena


Robin

I'm so excited to be on the team.  I live in Amherst, Ohio.  I have two daughters, one in North Carolina (she went there to college and decided to stay) and another on her way to college in the fall.  She will be going to Idaho.  I told her she can't stay there.  My sister got me into paper crafting in 2011 and absolutely love it!!!  Coloring is very stress relieving and it's so much fun to win stuff.  I have recently started in some mixed media and I'm having lots of fun with it too.  I really love all the creativity I see all over blog land and am finding I can be inspired by so many different things in life now.  Thanks so much for having me on your team!


Again, welcome to the team, ladies! We are SO excited you're here and look forward to lots of fun crafting together!

Big hugs,
Leslie & the DT

LTSCB #60 - Anything Goes!

Hi everyone and welcome back to the Love To Scrap! Challenge Blog! Thanks to everyone who played with us in our "WOW, It's White On White!" challenge that just ended! All-white projects are obviously not very popular because we didn't have very many entries, but those few we did see were absolutely amazing! Be sure to check back Wednesday for our Winners and Brenda's DT Favorites!

Before I get on to the new challenge, I'd like to remind everyone once again to please read our Challenge Rules prior to entering your projects. We are a stamping challenge blog and we do require stamping (rubber/clear or digi) on ALL projects entered into our challenges. We do not allow all-digital creations - your projects must be handmade with tangible elements and they must contain stamping. We only allow three entries per challenge and all of them must have some sort of stamping on them. The same rules apply to our Anything Goes challenges. Thanks for your attention to this - we want our challenges to be fun and fair! :)

Okay, are you ready?! Our theme this time is...
Anything Goes!

We challenge you to create any kind of project your heart desires 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!]


Our wonderful sponsors for this challenge are

Prize: 3 images to winner
