Default JUL18VSNA ~ Friday July 13 @ 5 pm ET ~ Fire up the Grill!

Challenge Title: Fire up the Grill!!
Hostess: Kim (aka berlycece)
Keyword: JUL18VSNA
Date: Friday July 13, 5:00 pm ET

Hey there stampers!! One of the hallmark of summer days both in my childhood and now as an adult is watching the man of the house cooking at the grill. I know, I know...it's 2018, and women can grill too! But the memories of my dad cooking burgers and steaks on his gas grill all year (even in a northern Illinois snowstorm!) makes me smile...and now my hubby enjoys cooking steaks, shish-ka-bobs, pork chops, and veggies for me and friends when we have company during a Staycation. One thing Bruce likes to do is make sure the food looks good with grill lines, perhaps criss-crossed.

My challenge has 2 components; choose one OR both.
1) Make a masculine themed card that is inspired by grilling... colors, images, whatever inspires you!
2) Use SCORE LINES somewhere on your card...anywhere!

Thanks to my fellow hostesses who made fantastic cards to inspire you!

Default JUL18VSNB ~ Friday July 13 @ 6 pm ET ~ Involuntary Staycation

Challenge Title: Involuntary Staycation
Hostess: tessaduck (Brenda)
Keyword: JUL18VSNB
Date: Friday July 13, 6:00 pm ET

When I was teaching, summers were supposed to be either trainings or traveling. Eh! Often, and especially as my career was winding down, they were time for surgeries: hysterectomy, lumpectomy, reconstruction, skin cancer. Even after retirement, I had two more surgeries (both shoulders), during the summer. Well, technically one was in autumn, after a summertime accident. Crazy times.

Anyway, I was sort of forced to use my summer breaks for recovery. Medically enforced staycations.

Do you know someone who is limited by illness, accident or surgery?

For this VSN, please make a get well or speedy recovery card. Dont send it to me. Thankfully, this summer, Im healthy!

I love to read. In fact, I would rather sit and read a book than go to a party. I can read a complete book in one sitting, if it isn't too long. The type of books I enjoy most are historical romance, especially those set in the regency period. Most historical fiction authors try to keep the history and the geography as accurate as possible, which means you can travel all over the world just by reading.

For my challenge, I want your card to include
an image of a book or an old book page.

Hostess: Michelle (aka mit240z)
Keyword: JUL18VSNE

Date: Friday, July 13, 9pm


Having young children, the hubby and I prefer to stay home and enjoy some always needed family time. But having four boys means finding ways to burn off some energy also. Nothing does that better than the great outdoors. I love being able to hang out in our backyard all day while only being steps away from all the comforts of home. Another favorite of ours is to go walking the paths in the nearby woods.



My challenge to you is to bring the great outdoors to your card.

Let's face it. We crafters love having a stay-cation, where we can stay home and do our crafty thing. Whether it is paper crafting, knitting, sewing, or baking, we love to CREATE! We live for that time alone...whether the kids are at school or at grandma's house for the weekend...maybe the hubs is on a hunting trip...even if we burn the midnight oil to get it...we want time to craft! This hour of VSN take a bit of time and create a card using a crafty sentiment.

Default JUL18VSNKIDS ~ Soap Bubble Art ~ Sat. July 14 ~ 12 Noon ET

Challenge Title: Soap Bubble Art
Hostess: berlycece (Kim)
Keyword: JUL18VSNKIDS

Date: Saturday July 14, 12 Noon ET

Summer isn't complete without kids blowing bubbles. But add some color, and Wow! For this project, I saw many different tutorials with different tips. They all include some basics:

1) Water - unless you use the actual bubble stuff
2) Liquid dish or hand soap, or liquid bubbles that kids use outdoors. I used hand soap.
3) Paint, either colored or white with some color added.


This is a FUN and MESSY technique, but kids will love it! Even those who are almost 53 years old like me! If weather cooperates, try this outside. Old t-shirts recommended for the little ones to wear. **Drying time is NOT included in your 1 hour VSN time limit.**

IF you do this with kids, please use NON-toxic tempera paints and or food coloring. Make sure kids can blow into the straw, not suck the liquid up. If your kid is too young to do that, I recommend the adult blow the bubbles and the child hold the paper over the bubbles to make the design.

I started with a white acrylic paint and added drops of SU ink. But I wanted a more intense color, so I added some colored distress paint. How much? I definitely had too much water in my first attempts. I just added color to get a decent shade. I didn't measure. I forgot what the video below shows!

I used 10 oz plastic cups, but smaller cups would work so you wouldn't have to wait so long for the bubbles to reach the top. I used thick card stock, because it needs to handle the moisture. Water color paper would probably be a better option. Thanks to my fellow hostesses for making samples!

Here is a video tutorial with annoying music but great results! LOL

Default JUL18VSNG Holiday World

Challenge Title: Holiday World
Hostess: Shoe Girl (Lisa)
Keyword: JUL18VSNG
Date: Saturday July 14, 2018

If you live in and around Indiana and you want a Staycation you think of Holiday World and Splashin' Safari. Holiday World & Splashin' Safari (also known as Santa Claus Land prior to 1984) is a combination theme park and water park located near Interstate 64 and U.S. 231 in Santa Claus, Indiana, United States. The theme park is divided into four sections that celebrate Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving and the Fourth of July with rides, live entertainment, games, and attractions. So if I am doing a Staycation I am going to Holiday World.

My challenge to you...create a card with a holiday theme on it.

My husband and I and our youngest daughter are having a staycation this summer while our two older daughters take an overseas trip with their grandparents. We told A to make a list of all she wanted to do, see, and experience during her time as an only child. Some of the things on her list are:
  • seeing a Pittsburgh Pirates baseball game
  • having a milkshake at The Milkshake Factory
  • taking a Ducky Tour
  • going miniature golfing
  • visiting a new-to-us ice cream shop
  • spending a day at Sandcastle, Pittsburgh's water park
To commemorate our excitement over Sandcastle's 15 water slides (we've never been!), my challenge to you is to make a slider card. SCS has a tutorial here: Slider Card Tutorial - Splitcoaststampers

***BONUS (optional)! A few weeks after A made her list, I happened to win five tickets to Sandcastle from a local radio station. I was dying to share my excitement but everyone in my family was napping (it was a Sunday afternoon ). So an extra challenge is to use bright, LOUD colors that would wake up my dozing family!***

To me a staycation is dusting off your bicycle and taking a niceride around the neighborhood or down a wooded trail. Where I live we are luckyenough to have paved trails everywhere.

My challenge for you is to include a bicycle stamp or bicycle die in your card.Let's see what you can create with a bicycle in mind.

Challenge Title:Lemony Yellow
Hostess: Angie Bode
Keyword:JUL18VSNM
Date: Saturday July 14, 2018



At our house, we are master of the economical vacation! We do go on a big vacation every few years but camping or staycations are what we do the most of the time. I am afraid I have never been very clever about our staycations. I simply want to go to a movie, take a day trip to our favorite gardens and eat out several times but when I heard the summer VSN theme was going to be "Staycation", I googled it! There are a lot of fabulous ideas on how to make staying home a fun adventure!

One of the ideas that several blogs had in common was to place glass pitchers in strategic spots in your house filled with ice water and lemons slices like they have in fancy hotels. Keep some cups near the pitchers and when you walk by pour yourself a drink! Another idea to freshen up the house is to toss a few lemon slices in a pan of water and simmer for a couple of hours.

Challenge:
My challenge to you is to create a card with yellow as the main attraction, black and white are permitted but no other colors. This is not a lemon challenge even though I was inspired by lemon water but you most certainly can feature lemons if you would like! I can't wait to see a gallery full of cheerful yellow!

Challenge Title: Staycation Passport
Hostess: Sonja Van Laar SCS: Dr Sonja

Keyword: JUL18VSNN
Date: Saturday 07/14/18 8:00 p.m.


A few years ago my mother (she is 85 now) decided she was done with driving except for a few blocks to the grocery store. So, that meant I stepped up to chauffeur duties. To make this transition more fun, I started creating travel itineraries for her which included a detailed timeline for when the limousine (my car) would arrive, where we were going, tickets for the event (if there weren't any actual tickets I made some fake tickets), hilarious special details like orchestra music in the car while driving, hors d'oeuvres (grapes and cheese chunks in a baggie), and soda pop in a champagne glass. I made decorative folders to enclose the itinerary and mailed these to her in advance of the event. We have had so much enjoyment from this great game.

For this challenge, I have sketched out a Staycation Passport that you can make to enclose an itinerary, tickets, or gift card to make some aspect of your staycation activites extra special. Or, use it to mail some fun to a friend in need of a pick-me-up.

Supplies you will need:
1 page of 8.5 x 11" cardstock
30" of ribbon (select something that is less than 1" wide for best results)
embossing folder (optional, but it makes a monochromatic project more interesting)
double sided tape, or glue
any additional decorations of your choice



*** To save yourself frustration and confusion, you might want to look at the thumbnails at the bottom of this post before starting so that you get the general idea of how all the pieces fit together.


Feel free to decorate your passport in any way that pleases you. In the kraft and blue passport above, I used washi tape on the spine and added a medallion to the front that says "Enjoy".

The passport is created from a single page of 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock, or you can use long strips of left over paper to decorate your passport. The tri-fold design that ties with a ribbon, has an internal pocket to tuck a gift card, tickets, or whatever suits your fancy.





*** The thumbnail photos are at the very bottom of this post. They go in order and show the steps to build the completed passport. Please click on the thumbnails if you need more detail.

1. Cut and score according to the diagram above.
Cut lengthwise at 5.5" and 7"
Cut one of the 11" x 1.5" strips in half at 5.5"
Cut the other 11" x 1.5" strip to 8.5" long

You will now have 4 pieces to build your passport.

The largest piece is scored twice to create the 3 parts of the card: score at 4" and 8.25". The front piece is 4" wide, the back piece is 4.25" wide, and the inside panel which will have the gift pocket is 3.75" wide.

The completed project will be 4.25 x 5.5" and fit into an A2 envelope.


2. There are 3 strip pieces that are 1.5" wide. Emboss the longest strip (the 8.5") and one of the 5.5 x 1.5" strips (these are for the band that covers the ribbon and the spine).

3. Attach the un-embossed 5.5 x 1.5" strip to the inside flap of the passport by using double sided tape on 3 sides. This is the pocket to hold your gift card or tickets.

4. Fold the ribbon in half and mark the half way point. Align the center of the ribbon on the center fold of the passport. You may want to use double-sided tape to fasten the ribbon to the 2 outside panels. Do not attach the ribbon to the inside flap.

5. Fold the 8.5 x 1.5" strip in half and place it over the ribbon strip. You will need to check the length and trim the ends because the front panel is 4" wide and the back panel is 4.25" wide and wrapping over the fold will take a little bit more length. Fiddle with opening and closing before you glue or tape in the final position. Trim as needed. Make sure the ribbon ends extend freely so you can tie the passport shut.

6. Now fold the remaining embossed piece (5.5 x 1.5") length-wise to form the spine cover. Again, fit it in place and fiddle with opening and closing to find the correct alignment before doing your final tape or glue.

7. Tie the ribbon and trim ends to your desired finished length.

8. Finish the inside and fill the pocket with a gift card, tickets, etc.

9. Your passport is ready for fun.

Mix up papers, textures, colors, ribbon, twine, whatever brings you joy! The passport below would be great for a gift card at Christmas time. I look forward to seeing your creations and reading your stories about how you will use your passport to fun!

Keyword: JUL18VSNO
Date: 9:00 PM ET



Good Evening & Welcome to this VSN Staycation Challenge! Staycations at our house when the kids were small was going to the zoo, and taking a picnic lunch and making a day of it! We even continued it with the grands! I have so many lovely memories of these times. There was the time going through the tropical bird area when the bird landed on my head! Scared the you know what out of me! LOL And the time that our grandson of about two, sitting in his stroller, pointed to a spot on the map he was holding and said "we haven't seen this one yet!" What? How can he know that? LOL I have lots of photos over the years of our kids in adorable poses with the animals. So, who doesn't have a favorite animal at the zoo?

Challenge Title: Tank of gas Getaway
Hostess: JBgreendawn ~ Stacy Sheldon

Keyword: JUL18VSNP

Date: Saturday July 14th, 10PM EST.

Good Evening & Welcome to this last VSN Staycation Challenge for this event.

The local news station has been doing a series of Stories the last two or three years when the weather gets nice called "Tank of Gas Getaways" the idea being that there is a lot to see around here that the investment for you is a tank of gas for your vehicle maybe lunch for the day. So, where I live in So. Oregon, I am 20 Miles north of the California Border and I could make it to the Pacific Ocean easily also. We are surrounded by National Forests, various lakes, rivers & waterfalls. For instance the county I live in also has Crater Lake National Park one of the "7 wonders of the world". It is a visible reminder that there really is a lot to see here. and I'd bet there is where you live too.

So, that is the challenge, show me something you can visit from your home on a single tank of gas (roundtrip) AND OR the vehicle you would take down a road to get there.

If you do not drive or own a vehicle that is OK take a wild guess what is withing say 250 miles of your home and that would work for most gas guzzling vehicles to make a trip of that distance and back.
