Challenge Title: It's Melting!
Hostess: T. Joy (Tricia)
Keyword: JUN14VSNMINI1
Date: Friday, May 2nd
Time: 6 pm EST

Hi everyone! Are you looking forward to summer vacation yet?? Hot days? Seeing if you can eat your ice cream cone before it MELTS all down your arm, or, horror of horrors, falls off the cone onto the ground?? That actually happened to me once. I cried. I'm scarred for life.

But I digress....

Aaaanyway, since this is a WARM UP challenge for the regular VSN in a few weeks, my challenge tonight is to make a card that features something that could MELT (like ice cream) OR the word "MELT" (I used "You Melt My Heart" on my card). If you really, really miss the snow already (LEE!!) you can even make your card with snow or a snowman. Easy Peasy! Let the creating and chatting begin!

My challenge is going to be "Hydration"... it's super important to stay hydrated when it is so hot. My boys are competitive archers & they have learned that Powerade or Gatorade is better than nothing, but water is the first choice. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. I'm challenging you to have water of some kind on your project.

Challenge Title: Sittin' by the Campfire
Hostess: Melissa aka javagirl984
Keyword: JUN14VSNA
Date: June 6
Time: 6 PM (EST)

My favorite vacation destination is going camping. My favorite camping activity is sitting by the campfire and especially roasting food on the fire. Yum!

My challenge for you is to make a stamped card/project that represents the warmth from a campfire.

You can use an actual image of a fire, use the colors of a fire (orange, yellow, brown), or some other representation of warmth or fire. Please let me know in your comments what you used to represent the warmth of a campfire. I can't wait to see your warm campfire creations.

Challenge Title: HOT AND STICKY SUMMER
Hostess: Susan (Cards are me)
Keyword: JUN14VSNB
Date: June 6
Time: 7pm (EST)


On our vacation we go boating. We prepare for the day by packing bags with towels, food and drink and, of course, smear our bodies with suntan lotion. During the day we stop for a swim or snacking and the sun gets hot. The sun gets so hot that we get sticky, sticky, sticky.

When not on vacation we work in the yard. Yup, you got it, we work up a little glow and get sticky, sticky, sticky.

What does being sticky and paper crafts have in common, you ask? Change the "y" to "er" and we get sticker. My challenge is to make a project with a sticker on it. *Making a sticker is acceptable, use an address label or sticky paper, whatever works . *

Dig deep into your stash, there just might be a sticker in there.

Here is my sample:

Challenge Title: A Good Book
Hostess: ohmypaper! (Angie)
Keyword: JUN14VSNC
Date: Friday, June 6
Time: 8PM

“Reading... a vacation for the mind....”
― Dave Barry


Reading has topped my "favorite thing" list ever since I read my first "Dick and Jane" book. I can still feel the excitement as a new world opened up to me. I can't leave the house without a good book in tow and I certainly can't go on summer vacation without one, two or probably three! Whether you have a long summer break or a short few days break, a grand destination or a staycation, I recommend that you keep a stack of books handy!

My Challenge: Inspired by a Book . There are lots of possibilities for this challenge. You can use an image of a book, text paper, characters or themes from a book. A book cover could inspire your design. A classic, cookbook, math book, address book.....and on and on I could go! I can't wait to see what you create and be sure to let us know what inspired your work of art!

Hostess: tessaduck (Brenda)
Keyword: JUN14VSND
Date: Friday, June 6, 9 P. M., EST


Im a retired teacher. The summer vacation after I retired felt normal, but with September, retirement became a reality. I came to understand that retirement was an ultimate vacation, with more choices and opportunities than I could imagine. So, nearly every year, a former colleague takes the same step into retirement. This year, there are two: a first grade teacher and the cafeteria manager. Believe me, its something to celebrate.

For this challenge, make a card or project acknowledging someones retirement. Alternatively, make it for a bon voyage or graduation event.

Have fun with it!

Challenge Title: Faux Tole Flowers (EXTRA time allowed)
Hostess: Janeenk (Janeen)
Keyword: JUN14VSNE
Date: Saturday, June 7, 1:00 p.m. EST

In the upper Highlands of Wisconsin Summer flowers don't come very early. We don't even plant our flowers until after Memorial Day. It is always a thrill for me and many others to see those flowers finally bursting into reality. We get to see the "resurrection" or raising up of all those bulbs we planted. My challenge to you is to use the Faux Tole method and "raise" those flowers up.

Tole~in it's simplest form means to make three dimensional by using like pieces and cutting them, giving the pieces dimension and layering them. There is a tutorial for you HERE.

If you don't have a stylus you can use a ball point pen that has dried up (you know, the one you always have by the phone that doesn't write ) or even a chop stick. Just something to curve those edges with. One thing i forgot to mention in the tutorial; if you are stamping your main image on white card stock you will want to color your main image in as well as the extra stamped piece.

Because this is a bit putzy and it may be a new technique for some of you we are extending the time frame for this challenge to two hours. So looking forward to seeing what you create.

Summer Vacation is a perfect time to go star gazing, don’t you think? I love to look around the sky and pick out constellations in the Milky Way on warm, clear nights. With stars in mind, for this challenge let's Wish on a Star!

My challenge to you is to make a card using a star. The star can be part of the image, or part of the background, or used as an embellishment...just have fun with it! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

When my kids were young, I took them on a big vacation each year. One was a road trip through Maine and New England, and it included a drive up Mt Washington in New Hampshire. One summer we went to Colorado, and we could see Pike's Peak from our hotel lobby. We also drove up Pike's Peak. Yeah, wild times with thin air and no guard rails.

So my challenge for you is to include either mountains or hills in your project.

I live in the Canadian prairies so I seldom get to the ocean. My few visits were along the Atlantic coast, mostly when it was too cold to go into the water for a swim. I still came away covered in salt; in my hair, on my clothes, and I could taste it on my lips.

My challenge to you is to create a card using the salted background technique. You can find the tutorial HERE.

Hostess: UnderstandBlue (Lydia)
Keyword: JUN14VSNI
Date: Saturday, June 7, 5:00 p.m. EST

I live in big sky country with a very high number of sunny days per year, so we don't need summer to have tan lines - but it's that time of year! How many of you have based your bathing suit or workout clothes purchases based on what your tan lines will look like?

So let's put down a mask on our cards and get creative with some paper tan lines!

Use post it notes, masks or stencils to preserve white space, and then sponge, spritz or paint color on the rest.

For my sample, I used the no-line watercoloring technique on my big flower. For my tan lines, I laid down some drywall tape and watercolored through it. I stuck with the yellow and blue of a good old Texas summer.

Can't wait to see what you do!

Challenge Title: Lemonade! Get Your Lemonade!
Hostess: Kim (aka berlycece)
Keyword: JUN14VSNJ
Date: Saturday June 7 6:00 pm EST



When I was a kid growing up in the 70's, my siblings, neighbors, and I would do lots of lemonade stands every summer. Technically, they were Kool-Aid stands, but you get the idea. We always had 2 flavors AND 2 sized cups...so 4 options. A businessman on the street was so proud of our entrepreneurial spirit! I'll never forget when he gave us 50 cents for a 5 cent cup...we felt like we hit the jackpot!

When I think of lemonade, I think of bright sunny lemons...but I always liked orange and lime Kool-Aid too. (Can't stand them now, but hey, I was a kid.) Now, my husband loves lemonade, and I actually enjoy limeade. Of course, fresh squeezed orange juice is always refreshing.

My challenge is a COLOR challenge. Make a card FEATURING the fabulously BRIGHT CITRUS COLORS of YELLOW, GREEN, and/or ORANGE

You do not have to use citrus images. This is a COLOR challenge. But do keep our overall VSN theme in mind: Summer Vacation! WooHoo!!

I have attached my sample for your inspiration

Challenge Title: NOT Your Typical Summer Vacation
Hostess: CndnStamper (Christine)
Keyword: JUN14VSNK
Date: Saturday, June 7th 7:00 EST

Do you remember ever having to write that horrible essay in September? You know the one, "How I Spent My Summer Vacation," well Wallace Bleff has an interesting story to tell...

As a primary school teacher, I read "How I Spent My Summer Vacation" by Mark Teaque to my students every year. We then all write stories about the craziest, most amazing summer vacation we just (dreamed we) had and try to one up each other. My class takes trips to Mars, has tea with the Queen or discovers new species of dolphins. We then have a special party to share our stories.

I challenge you to create a card to reflect the craziest, most amazing summer vacation you have never had... yet! The sky is the limit. Bonus points for telling us a little about your imaginative vacation.

I can't wait to read all about it!
