Default MAR07VSN H 1pm A ROOM WITH A VIEW CHAT THREAD

HERE WE GO! I am so excited. Could hardly wait for the 1:00 hour! Good Luck all you creative geniuses.

MAR07VSNH 1:00pm – Room with a View Hosted by Gremhog

So we are all heading for various destinations. But before you start you, you have to do some planning. In your head. Then for real. So as winter begins to turn to spring, where would you like to be right now. YOUR FAVORITE GETAWAY. What does it look like? Where it is? Far away in some exotic clime or as near as your neighborhood beach?
My Challenge Description: You have 45 minutes to make a ROOM CARD…one that is 3-D in nature. And fill it with all the things you have just dreamed about for your favorite GetAway.
Start with an 8.5x8.5” square piece of cardstock. Score it in the middle, both ways.

Then cut up on score line to the center.

These 2 squares will overlap to form the base for your room. After that…all the creativity is yours.



Here is my GetAway Room Card: My husband loves flowers and gardens so wherever we go, we have ended up in Botanical Gardens…from Virginia to Seattle. And we have spent time renewing ourselves, our ideas, our spirit.


Inkydigits inspired my first room card and I have made so many of them: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...439346&cat=fav

SAMPLES in post #7!!



Uploading Instructions:
You have 45 minutes to complete this challenge.
If you are using additional keywords, you must separate them with a comma.
Copying and pasting the keyword is recommended to avoid typos
It is recommended that you post a link to your creation in the chat thread just in case the gallery is being testy.

OK, I don't understand how this closes, lol. Do the two bottom flaps that overlap get glued together?

Yes, you can leave it open when you are done. I have attached velcro to secure it most times

the two "floor" pieces fold up so close. You can attach a ribbon around the outside to close with a bow.

This is sort of a pop up card...You have to think about how to make things pop up, then lay down when it closes!

You can use small strips of cardstock to hold up images in the "middle" of your room.

that's why I love SCS. You are all so creative. I love cards that do more than just sit there looking at me. I'm so glad someone (you) are giving it a try.

so, can we do more than one of each VSN challenge (and time ourselves to not go over 45min?) or can you just post one for each challenge? I would have posted this question in the general thread, but it didn't seem like anyone had been in there since yesterday...

I think it's only 1 entry per challenge if I remember from prior VSN's.

You do not have to do that. I had so much fun being your vixen. Would have had more teasers coming your way but life got in my way.

I'll have to think about this one later! I went to grab a couple of little sailboat stamps and would'n ya' know -- one is missing.
Is this a sign -- -- that I need to clean up my stamp room?

whoops, I din't say it very clearly...I meant can you do one 45minute challenge (ie: one room card) and then another 45min for another? Since things do not need to be posted until Sunday 3pm...

Yep...Only one entry per challenge. And you can not double up challenges.

But on your own, feel free to make as making room cards as you please! Like any great stamping project, they can get addicting!

kristine...it is fun. Once you don't have a time limit, you suddenly begin to see so many possibilities in your stamps. They become something other than you first intend. It's good for the brain juices to get creative.

OK, another question (I'm feeling very dense this morning...I'll blame it on the fact that it is 1:30 and I haven't had lunch yet, lol). Does this need to be the inside of a room, or where we want to vacation (even if that is outside)?

That's my other problem. What to put inside of a room. I have no stamps for that. If I get back to this, I'll have to cut out little bits like my 5 year old granddaughter does and name them - Chair - Table - et cetera.

That is a great, fun card. I love the idea of a vacation with your daughter/shopping for fabulous clothes, and having your own fashion show while the cat naps. Great job, vicky Gould.
