Challenge #367 - Masculine

Hello All!  Renee here hosting this week's challenge.  This week the challenge is masculine.  I don't know about you, but I always forget to do masculine projects for the guys in my life.  I always tend towards girly projects.  I was thankful for the push to do a masculine card.

 For my project I created this card using a cute boy stamp which I altered to look like my son who will most likely get this card.

Below are the other projects created by our design team.  When you are done perusing these, don't forget to like up your project to the challenge.

Here's my masculine card for this challenge.


I tend to gravitate toward stars for masculine projects! 
I did this card for my son to give to a little friend of his for his birthday this week.

Challenge #365 - Music

Amanda here with this week's challenge! The theme this week is Music! This is one of my absolute favourite things to scrap! I would estimate that 75% of my layouts have been inspired by music in some way, whether it be lyrics, song title or artist name! So for this week we want to see how music inspires you to create!

For my project this week I used the title and lyrics to my country's national anthem
 - only fitting to do a layout since today is Canada Day!

This is what the DT came up with!

I used the song "Scream" by Avenged Sevenfold to scrap that time that my husband
had someone to go on "Supreme Scream" with, because I'm too chicken to do it, LOL
Product Info:  Elle's Studio, Kelly Purkey, Simple Stories, Tim Holtz,
and Webster's Pages

My card includes musical note patterned paper and a stamped tag that has musical notes in the background.

Challenge 363 - Mood Board

Hello all! Gail here with this week's challenge - a mood board.

Use the image below to be inspired to create your project...It could be the color scheme, or a certain icon/image that you see, is it an element or a pattern?  Maybe it is the whole feel or theme of the board itself.  Have fun with it and show us what inspires you!

Don't forget, we still have a position available on our DT!  If you are interested, make sure you email with DT Call in the subject line and let Tammy know that you are interested! Open worldwide, no DT experience is necessary.  Tell her a little about yourself, and why you would like to be on the DT and then a link to your blog/instagram/FB page ( wherever you post your creations).

For my project I used some of the colours, patterns and a llama.  

Had a little fun using up some super old stash to scrapbook these photos of my three goofballs!


I used some of the colors and the outdoor theme to make this birthday card.
