Nbr 7

I must say I am really excited about this challenge...The whole dt impressed me with everything that they did. It was super fun too. I know you are gonna love it as much as we did.

This one was brought to you by Mojo Girl Micayla. Your challenge is junk it up. Yes you were right trash. Use trash on your layout. Something that maybe looks really neat but is meant to go to the trash heap. It can be one thing it can be many things. The skies the limit. The second part is to use a stapler somewhere somehow.

Now I'm sure you would like to know what it is you are playing for right? Our sponsor for this challenge is Paper Pixie Kits! I mean they have to be cool with a name like that right?



Here are the amazing pages the dt came up with.

Guest Mojo Girl

The time has come to introduce our guest Mojo Girl...She is super fab and has been a big supporter of us since the day we started. We love this girl so much and are so honored to have her on the team.




1.Name: Rachel Denbow

2. What is your Day job? SAHM, Kit Club Designer, Tutor, Artist

3. Do you have a spouse,children..pets? Married 5 1/2 years to Brett. Our son, Sebastian is 1.5

4. Do you have a blog that you regularly post on? If so, what is the link. Yes, Here ( http://blingonmysewingmachine.blogspot.com), Here (http://redvelvetgirls.typepad.com> and Here( http://redvelvetgirls.typepad.com/rvkc).

5. How long have you been scrap booking? About two years.

6. Where do you find your inspiration for layouts? The papers I'm using inspire the mood and style of the LO as well as the pics I've chosen. Mostly I work around color combos. I love checking out what others are doing on SisTV for new ideas.

7. What is your ¡°must-have¡± item on a layout (other than the necessities)? I usually have to have things stapled to the page somewhere. I love the industrial look it adds.

8. What would you say your scrapping style is? What is your favorite technique? I'd say my style is bright and geometric. I love to test out shapes and compositions with each element to keep the eye moving. I try to include non-scrappy products in every LO to make them unique.

9. Can you describe your scrapping process? I like to start with a picture and then gather papers and elements that reflect the mood I'm in. I sit with them for a little while to see how they might all come together and start cutting things out. Once I've got it all where I want it, I start with the bottom layers and attach them to the back page with stitching or photo squares. I sometimes over do LO's so I have to let it sit for a little bit before I decide that I'm finished.

10. Where can we see more of your work (online galleries, etc.) Check out my portfolio HERE ( http://www.scrapinstyletv.com/profile.php). I also post on my Flickr site ( http://www.flickr.com/photos/denbow/). Thanks for looking!

Make sure you leave some love for her and come back tmw for the challenge and see what Rachel cooked up!

Challenge numero Seis (6)

So I said I was going to announce something yesterday but I decided to wait till today to do it all at once...I'm so excited and sad at the same time. We must say goodbye to one of our dear sweet Mojo girls Lizee (cry tears wah!) and say hello to a new sweet Mojo Girl Christina (happiness cheer jump for joy )!!

She was to be our "Guest" Mojo Girl but after getting the news of our sweet Lizees departure I decided to ask her to come on as a bonafied real deal holy Field Mojo Girl. Now don't fret my little chickadees! No cries of unfairness please! I also was going to add 2 more Mojo Girls! So this is that official call for you my dears. Show me your best 3 layouts and or altered projects by Feb 5th and we will make a decision on who will get to join our lovely talented team! How exciting is that?

Ok so I have stole the spotlight long enough from Miss Christina here she is to tell us a little bit about herself.



1.Name
Christina Clouse

2. What is your Day job?During the day, I am a senior customer service quality analysis specialist and facilitator for payroll and benefits related call center representatives at Starbucks. (try saying that 10 times fast!) I have my payroll certification, but my current job lets me work more with people and less with numbers... which is a good thing.

3. Do you have a spouse¡¦children..pets?I have a boyfriend named Greg. I suppose I could call him my domestic partner....We've been together for about eight and a half years. We don't have any pets, but I do have a three year old coffee tree named Bob that seems to be thriving.

4. Do you have a blog that you regularly post on? If so, what is the link.Why yes. Everyone needs a little Eye Candy every now and then. Come visit me!
http://coffee-girl-crafts.blogspot.com

5. How long have you been scrap booking?I seriously got into scrapbooking about a year and a half ago, although I've always loved playing with art supplies and taking photographs.

6. Where do you find your inspiration for layouts?A lot of my inspiration comes from the photos, and the products I use, but when I am seriously stuck, I will go and visit fabulous challenge sites like ScrapMojo or online galleries.

7. What is your ¡°must-have¡± item on a layout (other than the necessities)?My Dymo Label Maker is pretty much a staple of my scrap supplies. I just love the way it looks (especially when compared to my handwriting).

8. What would you say your scrapping style is? What is your favorite technique?Hmmm.. I don't know if I really have a "traditional style." It's very freestyle and quirky...Let's call it: Funky Fabulous.

9. Can you describe your scrapping process?Me scrapping goes a little bit like this:
- Clear space on desk big enough for craft mat to be (mostly) clear enough to work on.
- Choose size of project (mini-book, 8.5x11, 12x12, whatever...)
- Select picture(s) and tweak in photoshop until it looks all purdy.
- Print picture out and trim as needed.
- Select base background cardstock or PP.
- Pick three or four base colors and choose embellishments.
- Throw stuff on the page until it looks like it's had "enough"
- Fondle my Thickers collection until I find a font/texture that will work for my title.
- Forget to put scrap stuff away, leave everything piled on desk.

10. Where can we see more of your work at (online galleries, etc.)
I like to hang out at Scrap in Style: http://www.scrapinstyletv.com/profile_1069.html
I also design for Sweet Spuds (a kit club that ROCKS): http://mysweetspuds.com/sitebody/gallery/christina.htm
And recently I got into the whole Etsy thing: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5357408

Isnt she fab!

As for the challenge....It goes like this, Scrap a resolution that you repeat year after year. You know the one. It's got a permanent spot on your new years resolution list. We would also like you to sew on this layout. Hand or machine doesn't matter. Not to hard right? Enough to get you going for a week or two? Well the prize should get you motivated even more. Heather owner of Everythingscrappn has some very cool stuff and she promised to put together some brand new goodies for ya. I heard some sei Jolie chocolat! Very awesome!

If that still isn't enough to get you going then take a gander at our Mojo Girls takes on this challenge.
