SURPRISE!!! Scrap Fx blog hop WINNER! And fun with A Flair For Buttons badges!

Hello there!

Thank you so much for leaving all the amazing comments for the Scrap FX blog hop this weekend!

I found myself laughing out loud more than once as I read your comments.
While some of you can't get enough of dress forms, gears and butterflies, other are DEFINITELY over them.

Many of you love nature influenced designs and you REALLY love script font wordlets.

Those are my absolute favorite too (along with the mini packs- I love mini everything!)

I decided to pick a winner for myself.

I will send 6 new Scrap FX designs to:


Em please email your addy along with your style preferences- my address is on the upper right of this blog.

This was my birthday weekend so I spent a lot of it running around visiting friends and shopping
but I made a page for the A Flair For Buttons blog:
Materials: A Flair For Buttons 2013 button (love the spray painted look of the font!)
American Crafts Charcoal cardstock, Cosmo Cricket printed chipboard, neon pink Duck tape,
Stickers from Crate Paper, Studio Calico white mist and neon pink mist from Stencil1.com
The Crafter's Workshop Microbial Stencil by Julie Balzer is an instant fave- so fun!
I used it to suggest snow and to give movement to a page that was pretty static.
The neon pink mist from stencil1 is also a new favorite.
I use it sparingly because it really is bright.
I was a little distressed by the mist going over the stencil edge but
I actually like that now. Duct tape is NOT acid free but I loved the texture it added to the page.
 I also wanted to use it- it's been hanging around for 2 years now.
Next, I'll cover stencil borders with it so they don't bleed.
An idea from a Creative Jump Start video by Julie Balzer .
I've been reorganizing my stash.
I shop too much and have a tiny space so it's been really stressful and messy but I'm slowly getting to the point where things are grouped together in a way that makes sense and makes them easier to find.

Any suggestions?

MuChOs SmOoChEs!
