Title: The Spring Poem

Keyword: MARCH12VSNI
Day/Date: Saturday, March 10th
Time: 4:00pm EST

"Spring has sprung!", said the bumble bee.

"I just saw a daffodil blooming on a windy hill!"


My challenge is....use one or more items from the poem to make a card or project. Keep in mind that you do not have to take the poem "literally". Think outside the box....there are so many possibilities! Most of all have fun!

Title: Crafty Bookworms - kids' challenge
Hostess: Scrapacat (Ky)
Keyword: MAR12VSNKIDS
Day/Date: Saturday, March 10th
Time: 12:00 (noon) PM EST

This challenge is specifically for kids, but parents are welcome to assist them.

March is National Reading month, so I thought it would be fun to have the kids make a bookmark, to keep or to give. I remember when I was younger, all we had were basic shapes. We had to use our imagination to come up with critters using hearts, circles, squares, etc.

The challenge is to make a bookmark using either punches to create an animal or flower shape, or paper piece a stamped image. Have fun with this!

Any questions? Feel free to ask! {and yes, that penguin is just for LYDIA! Squee!}

I can't wait to see what you come up with! Thanks for letting your kids to play my VSN challenge.

Title: Here comes the sun!
Hostess: superjen (Jen Treadway)
Keyword: MAR12VSNA
Day/Date: Friday, March 9th
Time: 5:00pm EST

One of my favorite things about spring is that the days are beginning to get longer and we are able to become reacquainted with our friend the sun. It's why daffodils are my favorite flowers - their sunny color is so warm and optimistic and especially welcome in early spring.

And don't forget that this weekend is the beginning of Daylight Savings Time - another reason to say "Here comes the sun!"

My challenge is for you to make a card or project using SUNNY COLORS! Do it with ink, markers, cardstock, DP or embellishment, just bring on the sun!

Title: Spring Cleaning
Hostess: Andrea, blondpolock14
Keyword: MAR12VSNC
Day/Date: Friday, March 9th
Time: 7:00pm EST

My challenge is to go find something from the depths of your crafting supplies that you haven't seen or used in at least 6 months! It could be some hideous patterned paper, a set of nesties that's been neglected, some embellishments that got lost, a stamp set that you haven't used yet, or maybe a technique that you haven't used in a long time! I know we ALL can do this challenge(many, many times)!!!

I know it's a pretty broad challenge, but let us know in your description what you found to use for this challenge while cleaning! Plus, this is a good time to get started on that tedious task that most of us seem to dislike..."SPRING CLEANING!"

Title: Catch 'Mnemonia'!
Hostess: Crafty Math Chick
Keyword: MAR12VSNG
Day/Date: Saturday, March 10th
Time: 2:00 PM EST

When you were students, some of you may have used a mnemonic device to help you remember something, one of those little tricks where you take the first letter of each word and replace it another word that begins with the same letter to help you remember? A common one from your childhood was the one for the Order of Operations in Mathematics 'PEMDAS' -Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally to help you remember to solve operations in the following order Parentheses Exponents Multiplication Division Addition Subtraction. Well, I have been going to school for a loooong time and had to come up with several of these over the years, so when I read that the theme for VSN was going to be 'spring' my mind automatically thought "S.P.R.I.N.G." and tried to think of catchy words to substitute for the letters.

My challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to come up with your own crafty ingredients to substitute in for the letters in the word "SPRING". Something that begins with the letter S, something that begins with the letter P, etc. EXCEPT - no repeats! For example, let's say you add a green ribbon to your project - it can either represent your "G" for the color green OR "R" for ribbon, but not both. Get it? Your card does not need to be a spring card - it can be for any holiday, occasion or season, as long as all of the letters in the word spring are represented. Please tell us in your description what your 'SPRING' is when you upload your photo to the gallery!

Don't be intimidated - I look forward to seeing how creative everyone gets with this! Here are some suggestions to get you started if you are really stuck:

S - Shimmerz, squares, sunflowers, sentiment, Stickles, snowflakes
P - pink, pastles, patterned paper, pearls, paper piecing
R - red, ribbon, rhinestones, rabbit, roses
I - ink, ivy, icycles, ice cream, insect
N - navy, Nestabilities, nesting punches, numbers
G - glitter, green, gingham, girl

Any questions? Feel free to ask!

I thought it would be fun to keep a tally of all the different SPRING elements everyone used in their cards for this challenge, so I will be updating this as the cards roll in:

S - sentiment
P - puppy
R - ribbon
I - ink
N - navy
G - Glossy Accents

Title: Sprung Springs, Sprockets & Gears!
Hostess: JBgreendawn
Keyword: MAR12VSNH
Day/Date: Saturday March 10
Time: 3PM EST.

When I read the words, Spring has Sprung I instantly thought of watch parts springing OUT of the compartment when then lead to thoughts of Steampunk...

Yep, you guessed it This challenge is to create something a card, a tag ( what ever you like) using an Steampunk theme.

If your not familiar with this, in a nutshell its fictional genre of science fiction set in the victorian era. so, you may see characters with victorian clothing and or googles and spats on the legs with buttons. for "things" you may see air ships ( hot air balloons ) or any item with the gears and sprockets exposed. SO, lets see your gears. this can be real metal ( ie watch parts ) embossed cardstock, die cuts. you could wind wire into a spiral spring shape and tuck a message into it.

This link will take you to the splitcoastgallery of uploads tagged as Steampunk for further inspiration.

My Sample uses an Sweetpea image She's colored with copic's in a not so normal way and there are tiny watch parts on the sentiment tag. Middle card was done for a Birthday for one of the guys at work and the last one is a non-hearts and flowers valentine... (both of these cards I "thought" could be done in less then 45 since there was no coloring, but it was closer to 50 minutes)

When I read the words, Spring has Sprung, I thought of rebirth and the awakening of all of the little critters that hide or hibernate in the winter! For this challenge create a critter that hops, be it a bunny, grasshopper, OR whatever!

I chose to use a Sizzix Punch for my first card. I chose punch art for my second example. Stamp in image if you'd like. Do whatever you can do but get hopping at that card!

When I saw the Spring has Sprung Theme for VSN, I immediately thought of flowers. Then I thought of ribbons, dies and how fun it would be to make rolled flowers.

My challenge is a Technique Challenge.... include rolled flowers on your card or altered project. Either take some ribbon and twist it down, or use dies, or just cut out your own!

Here are some Tutorials:

Title: SPRING Has Sprung
Hostess: meerkat3 (Leslie)
Keyword: MAR12VSNM
Day/Date: Saturday, March 10
Time: 8:00 pm EST

Most people who know me know that my brain works in mysterious (weird) ways. When I read the words "Spring has Sprung", I thought of a spring - that curly, twisted, wire-y thing. That led my brain to "curly", and I decided we need do cards with something curly on them.

For this challenge, I'd like you to create a card (or non-card) with a 3D curly element. It can literally be a spring (like from a ball-point pen), or you can make a spring by wrapping wire around a toothpick, or use korker ribbon, or curling ribbon, or crafter's floss, or I'll even take quilling - anything that curls and is 3D.

Don't have quilling tools? No problem! Cut a piece of paper (not card stock) 1/8" wide and anywhere from 6-12" long (for starters). Then carefully wrap one end of it around the business end of a paper piercer and slowly wind it up. There, you've quilled.

For my card, I embellished my button with some of the miles of craft wire I have. I cut two lengths of the wire and put them through the holes of the button like you would do with ribbon or twine, twisted them to secure, then I curled each end around a toothpick.

My samples are below, plus two more by Cindy (Scrapcollectr57) and Paige (Paige):. Now go play and have some fun!

Title: SPRING POP UP CARD
Hostess: Linsey (scrapperLinsey)
Keyword: MAR12VSNO
Day/Date: Saturday, MARCH 10th
Time: 10:00pm EST

Oh these winter days seem to drag on and on,
Will those patches of white stuff ever be gone?!
I must find a way to escape this cold place,
and find myself warming up as I enter my craft space.

I look to my left, POP!--brilliant colors of prima flowers fill a glass jar,
I look to my right, POP!--rainbows of ribbons house my ribbon armoire!
Rows of colorful inks, stickles, copics arranged with such care,
Stacks of patterned papers...oh my! Spring inspiration is POPPING UP everywhere!

I realize that creativity is the very best way to beat the winter blues and gloom,
as I sit here in my beloved craft room.
Because no matter what time of year, it can be Spring any day,
Simply let your imagination take you away!


My challenge to you is to make a SPRING THEMED POP UP CARD!
Any variation of a pop-up card! The easy, basic version is available below!
