ChYps and A Card Challenge

Tracie Dempster, Head of Care at ChYps has asked us if we would like to take part in a card making challenge.

Together with Scrapology, Tracie has supplied the basic materials for making a daffodil sympathy card. The Chyps Team want to send out a card to families after the death of the child they have cared for. The team would like these cards to have some similarities and so the card blank, envelope, printed insert, some digital cardstock (for stamping) and the daffodil stamp have all been supplied together with Stazon or Memento Ink (for stamping). After that how you colour your image or decorate your card is up to you!

What Chyps would like you to do is take a set of these materials and make a card to donate back to them to use, there will be a prize for the best card too!

The materials will be available at the next few Scrapology Club nights and also at the Cardinal Colours Weekend Crop. You are welcome to make one or more, just ask Lynn.  If you can't get to these events but would still like to take part please just ask, state the type of ink you need your image stamped in and we will send you the necessary materials.

Woodware Stamp
So please have a think about how you would like to do this and join in the fun, helping ChYps at the same time.

Many thanks.

S is for Starburst

This month we are scraplifting the talented Sandie Edwards. Sandie's blog 'Delightfully Crazy' can be found HERE.

Sandie sent these words to us all -

"About Me: I live in Geraldton, Western Australia with my partner who works in the mining industry (FIFO), and our 3 year old son, Jesse.  We are older parents, and also have grown up children, as well as Grandchildren.

Throughout my life I have dabbled in many areas of creativity. In 2011, I discovered Scrapbooking and paper-crafting, and have enjoyed the journey over the last few years immensely.   Creating memories for future generations is very important to me, especially being an avid diary writer – now my words are included in scrapbook pages, mini albums and so forth.  Creating is nearly a daily event for me, it is not just something I love, but a hobby, I totally am devoted too, and passionate about.

My ‘9 Months’ layout was created with the April, Limited Edition Kit, from My Creative Scrapbook.


We drew our sketch as always

We are challenging you to create a layout with a 'starburst' using any shapes to create your circle to focus on the photograph.

Here are the layouts created by our design team to give you some inspiration. Please click on the names to be taken to the relevant blogs.


Lynn and Linda used the Stamping Gear and stamps by Inkadinkado on their layouts. See instruction videos from Inkadinkado HERE

 The prize this month is a kit with the papers and other items to make a page like Lynn and Linda's version. Two pictures here show both sides of the lovely Marigold papers from Kaisercraft.

The kit contains: 3 sheets Kaisercraft Marigold paper  Maple, Spice & Tawny
A large button (design may vary), 1 bottle Iced Spruce Distress Stain, length of DMC 931 (not shown), Doily, Sketch & Instructions. 

In addition we used the Inkadinkado Stamping Gear Intro Kit to create a circle of petals. Please see You Tube Video by EK Success.

We hope you will joining the fun and enter the challenge by creating a layout using the sketch and made your own Starburst.  To enter the challenge, comment below with a link to the post on your blog where your layout is featured. If you don't have a blog please email us with an image - address in sidebar.  The challenge closes at midnight on 5th October 2013

Please create a new layout for this challenge - no back links will be accepted.

Prize available to UK residents only.
Looking forward to seeing what you all make - good luck.

If you are interested in purchasing a kit for this layout through Cardinal Colours (using the products Lynn and Linda have used) Please email to see if there are any available.
