Michelle, wants to see stamped background - you must stamp cardstock to make a patterned background to use on your page.
Karlene and I want to see you use masking tape {or something similar} on your layout

Lee-Anne wants you to use a product from My Minds Eye and must have some journaling
{it doesn't have to be purchased from the shop, just as long as its the same brand!}
Karlene and I think, seeing as Lee-Anne wants some journaling – how about it be PRINTED journaling – lets see some funky fonts being used! And we want you to alter chipboard alphas – inking, distressing, covering in pattern paper, painting….

I am loving all the glitz and glimmer products that are available at the moment so I would like to see some sparkle on your layout. It can be in the form of twinkles, glimmermist, glitter, bling etc. Something that is NEW on the market!
Karlene and I want to see some beads and handstitching

“USE YOUR SCRAPS” Cardmaking for a Cause!

OK this is a SPECIAL challenge this month, in honour of it being Breast Cancer Month I thought it would be a great idea to scrap some cards using the scraps from your layouts that you create. Our gorgeous generous and amazing friend Marelle is currently raising money for a friend of hers – please read a request she made . We would LOVE your support!
Criteria: is FREE for all…. Any theme as long as you USE YOUR SCRAPS!!!
“Hi Guys
I am trying to raise $450 for a friend's mother (who has beat breast cancer twice before) who has breast cancer for a third time.
This time, instead of going down the chemo track she has opted for naturopathic diet etc. So, my friend has not told her mum of our plan, so I am hoping to make it come to fruition
She needs to have unpasturised goat's milk and since she has limited funds, I need to raise $450 for a goat so my friend can milk the goat for her mum.
These goats are really unusual and rare and we have tracked a breeder down in Colac - so I was wondering if I could ask my gorgeous online friends here if you were able to make some cards
with positive messages that I could sell around my area to raise the funds.. you would only have to make a couple each
then I could sell them to start the fundraising..
The story is quite amazing - my friend has just reunited with her Mother after a considerable time apart (a lot ofyears ) and her children now have a grandma whom they did not know- after they were reunited the cancer came back - so I feel I would like to help , at least to raise money for a "downpayment" on the goat..
So if you would like to help, please mail all cards to me!
If you could help, I can pm you my addy and I will then sell the cards and start the ball rolling..
Last year (it took me 4 months to raised $60,000 for a friend's son who is now confined to a wheelchair after a bmx accident (17yrs ) so I am hoping it will only take a short time to raise $450
My gym (yes girls I have joined!) is having a Girls Night In on OCtober 29th 8-10pm at Curves in Drysdale

I am having a stall and selling hand made cards Christmas, Birthday, etc - I have some very well known scrapbookers making cards for me to sell - I have some already and they are stunning.. the cost of the stall goes to the Jane McGrath Foundation and everything I make will go to my friend's mother..
Thank you my sisters in scrap!xx
Please email us at for Marelle’s postal address.
Marelle needs them by 29th October so please post them before then!
PRIZES – We will be randomly choosing Winners
