SOS #197: Lost & Found

It's Tuesday, and time for a new challenge. This week's theme is Lost & Found, and we'd like you to use something you've recently re-discovered in your craft room. Maybe it was lost ... maybe you'd just forgotten you owned it. I love re-discovering found things in my craft room!

Here's how the gals have interpreted the challenge:


Brown Bag Lunches - Recipe Holder
Lost and Found Items: Spoon Die and Ephemera
CHANA

Lauren 
i've been looking for my little tin of garage-sale-acquired pins-- of which the cool blue heart is one-- ever since we moved; i was beginning to think i accidentally donated it!
Alica
I totally forgot I had this stamp set, almost bought it again :)
Jessi
I found this sweet fairy clip in a bunch of stickers while looking for something else
I found an unopened pack of pipe cleaners and re-discovered my Epiphany Crafts tool when looking for something else.

Donna
My lost and found item is my long neglected paper crimper.
Leslie
My found item was this cute stamp set
Deena
my lost items are stickles and the charm...4 kinds of stickles unopened and at least 3 years old and a charm from eons ago

Barbara
I have a couple of found items, the tulip border embossing folder missing since Christmas or before, the Butterflies were already stamped, embossed coloured and fussy cut and they just surfaced on Thursday in a box of non craft things 


Now it's YOUR turn! Go grab something you've recently re-discovered in your craft room, use it, then come back and link us up below so we can stop by and see what you've made.

The link-up will be open until Monday, April 20th, at 11:55 pm EDT. Please limit your total number of challenges to 13, including ours.

SOS #196: The Earth Has Music

Happy Tuesday! It's time for a new challenge. This week's theme is The Earth Has Music, and you are free to interpret that any way you'd like. You could focus on the Earth, or Music, or any number of possible combinations. Please be sure to mention in your blog post how you interpreted the theme, since it's not always obvious to us!

This week's challenge is a little special, because we're collaborating with Words 2 Scrap By. When you enter a card here, you can also link up to their challenge post. It's a two-fer!!!

The title of this week's challenge celebrates the first full month of spring and the words come from renowned author and philosopher George Santayana:

The earth has music for those who listen.

Please make sure to stop by the W2SB post and read up on their rules. The only rules here are to follow the challenge prompt!

Here are some cards from the Words 2 Scrap By gals:

Bobbi

Annie
Penny

Sybrina
and here's how our gals have interpreted the challenge:

2015 is the 30th Anniversary of the Song "We Are The World."

Jessi

Alica

Lauren
Deena
sunshine and song lyrics

Make sure to pop over the the W2SB blog to see the rest of our cards!

As a bonus, this week we'll still pick the Top Three, but there will be one winner who will get one of my duplicate stencils as a prize. It must be a good stencil as I've bought it more than once, right? :)

Now it's your turn! Go into your stash and find some earth or music or nature inspiration, make something, then come back and link us up below so we can see what you've made.

The Linky will be open until Monday, April 13th, at 11:55 pm EDT. Please remember to limit your total number of challenges to 13, including ours.

SOS #195: No Foolin'

It's Tuesday, and time for a new challenge. Since tomorrow is April 1st, also known as April Fool's Day, we thought it would be fun to do another challenge on faux techniques. Some ideas that come to mind are faux stitching, faux leather, faux silk, faux embossing.  There is a whole list of faux technique ideas here on Splitcoast. If you don't already have an idea, why not try something new?

Here's how the ladies have interpreted this week's challenge:

Leslie
I used the Faux Mother Of Pearl technique
I made a Faux Leather gift card/money wallet

Lauren
I used wet and dry embossing for this textural faux leather technique
Jessi
I used the Faux Tile technique 
I used the "Faux Weathered Wood Frame" Technique

Donna
I made "faux leather" using masking tape, distress ink and clear embossing powder (and did some faux stitching)
I used the faux metal technique for the car image.

Deena
I did faux stitching and faux cracked glass


Now it's YOUR turn! Put on your thinking cap and decide which faux technique to try. Why not stretch your wings and try something new, especially if it makes you use something neglected and unloved from your stash? :) Then make something and come back here to link up below so we can stop by and see what you've made.

The link-up will be open until Monday, April 6th, at 11:55 pm EDT. Please limit your total number of entries to 13, including ours.
