Wow! I really didn't expect to be done so early in the month! I did all six cards I pledged like this one, just changing out the ribbon to use up scraps in my stash. Thanks to my friend, Deb (Raider66) for letting me borrow this set and the extra piece of DSP I needed to finish!

Sure wish I was closer!!

I am car shopping, so I have multiple pages open here.. all the addresses I am getting in my PM I am copying and pasting into the excel worksheet. And the cars I find I am pasting addresses into Google maps!
I now know how far I live from some of you! LOL

I did find 2 ladies within 20 miles of you carol! too funny! SewSew (AnnMarie) and Oddesigns (Sue) Live just North of you.
I've never been over there so I am not sure what 20 miles is like to just get in the car and drive. here I have to rive that just to go grocery shopping! LOL

Sue and Ann hope you don't mind me telling that. Who knows maybe you gals can hook up and become great friends! Then I can be jealous! LOL
I have nobody crafty around here.

I did start a thread for Minnesotan SCS'ers and I have over 200 ladies on there and many have hooked up for retreats and stuff.
It's amazing when you find it is a small world!

yay! Carol you got out! Yeah I'd say that was a bit much for an outing!

Wouldn't that be cool to meet in real life someone you meet here!?!?!

I have met 2 ppl. One lady is in IL and her hubby was wanting to move to MN or MO so they were traveling around checking things out! Another lives 2 hours North of me and we just found each other a year ago on here!

Default Challenge #5

"This week I am going to challenge you to use something you have borrowed from a friend, but haven't yet used it!

Was it a stamp (or whole set), a Nestie, maybe their crimper, how about one of those ribbon taggers?

You know there's something, we've all just really wanted to try something, some cool gadget or toy!

I borrowed my mom's Embossing Light and a brass thingy and stylus... never even gave it a shot!
Thank goodness for Cuttle Bug Folders LOL

This challenge is completely OPTIONAL, just an idea for you"

you warm my heart by scrapbooknut1 - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Here is my Feb Christmas card! I used the glaze pen and star dust pen from Sskura and you can't really see it but it looks really good in person.

What a great idea, Vikki. That's what is took to get mine done this month. Debbie (Raider66) and I got together on Super Bowl morning while our hubbies went fishing. The fishing was good but they came home early anyway! So our stamping was cut short, we only finished ONE card that day. I stamped out my images and finished the next day. We used Debbie's stamps and I came up with the idea, now I have to loan her my embossing folder, so she can get hers done.

Vikki Jo, I live within a 50 mile radius of the city of Toronto and there are a lot of paper crafters in this area! A bunch of us got involved in a swap hosted by a gal in the city and as a consequence, started a thread here on SCS, and now actually meet in person for a social time almost once a month. I don't always attend because I am an hour and a half drive away and in the winter it isn't convenient and also, I am often working on the nights that they get together. However, it is fun to meet. Having said that, I also work with another card maker every other weekend. I introduced her to card making and now she has overtaken me in almost every area.....creativity, swaps, spending!! At present I have two items borrowed from her....a butterfly die (but I have used it a lot already) and a SU 'Snow swirled' stamp set. I will try to use it this week for my March cards and this week's inspiration challenge.

So cool you got to meet some from SCS. (yes, winter just bites for visiting!)

That's why my darling hubby calls you "trouble" Ina.

I think I have a couple things of yours, too...if I remember correctly...but they don't lend themselves to Christmas cards. Besides...if you didn't corrupt me who would you go to Zindorf's workshops with???

I am NOT addicted...I can quit stamping anyti..... oh who am I kidding... lol

This challenge really makes October and November easy. I am once again keeping my cards pretty flat since I use the Christmas card challenge cards for OWH.

Hope you can see the attachment.

I totally did this challenge! I was at my dear friend (and DownLine's) house a couple of weeks ago. I borrowed SU! Cute Christmas, and I told her I only needed it for 30 days.

I VOWED to myself to get it back to her in time... which meant I either had to use it or lose the chance at using it.

I had a ton of Candy Cane Christmas dsp. I made my 12 Feb cards with the set, and many into March. PLUS I stamped out a bunch of images in case I am inspired to do more later.

I just mailed her stamps back to her yesterday. AND IT FELT SO GOOD!!!!!!!

I love that we were on the same page about this. Great challenge!

Blessings,

Lela

Great cards girls!

For the shaker part you can use the cello bags.

Clearbags.com has several to choose from.

I have tried that fold and it just doesn't look good! Great job Shelley

Here's the tutorial if anyone else wants to give it a whirl! LOL

Angie, there is a tutorial HERE in the Resources section. I will tell you I did mine a little differently than Beate. I had to start with a 4 1/2" square to accommodate the cello bag. The background inside the cello is 2 7/8" x 2 7/8". I don't have a score pal so I used a fold method (see my pics here and on the next post) and once it was folded I scored all around, 1/2" from the edge (not edge to edge, but between the miters, KWIM?) If you have more specific questions let me know.

BTW-You are in Eastern Iowa, too! Anywhere near CR? I live in Atkins, just west of CR.

Does the bag stay open enough to allow the contents to shake, or do you need to use flat fillers for the bags?

I don't have a score pal so I used a fold method (see my pics here and on the next post) and once it was folded I scored all around, 1/2" from the edge (not edge to edge, but between the miters, KWIM?) If you have more specific questions let me know.

BTW-You are in Eastern Iowa, too! Anywhere near CR? I live in Atkins, just west of CR.
Yep! I'm in CR. You want to come to a shoebox swap next month?

Thank you for the tutorials! When you fill the bag do you tape it shut before taping it inside the fold?

I have done both beads and chunky glitter. The glitter moves around better but the beads aren't too bad. I used what I had on hand and my beads were not smooth and uniform, I think seeds beads might be fine.

To close the shaker I simply took the excess to the back and taped it down, before adhering it in the frame.

So you are doing Crystal's swap? I did her first two. So I think that means I haven't done the last two??? It's a lot of work making up all those card kits!

Yes, I'm going. I went to the last one she had. It was my first shoe box, so I had tons of questions and she was great about answering ALL of them with great patience. She hasn't had the responce this that she has had in the past, so there wouldn't be as many kits to make up if you decide to come. I'm thinking the kits will count towards my S2S balance.

Thanks, Shelley -- I may have to try the bag version, it looks so much cleaner than the foam tape mess I usually make of my shakers!

Finally got my Valentine's cards done. Now I can get back to my Christmas cards. I would be much happier if I could just shake this cold.

Good luck! I have had an ear issue for over 3 weeks now, it just keeps hanging on!

I am trying to find my Mojo, but it's still marinating!
