Challenge #3~ Keep it simple and write it out!

Hey Beautiful crafters! It's just me again showing you a fun layout spread. Actually a one sided spread. This week (since we have had chaos the last two weeks) is simple!!!

Hence our challenge for the next two weeks...Keep it simple you can embellish but try to just put your pictures in and your writing. If you just add pictures and write your story for the week it shouldn't take you that long to add everything in. Then later if you have a slow week or extra time you can add embellishments!

Our random generator choose #3 Gloria (disneynut4life22) for our winner this time around. We were just playing for fun but please feel free to add that you won to your blog Gloria! CONGRATS...

Without further ado my inspiration for ya. 

Write it out~ Yes in your OWN handwriting. I am so hard on myself when it comes to my writing. I dont like it. But years from now when I cant remember how to spell my name my kids and hopefully my grandkids might really enjoy seeing my handwriting from my own hands! Just a thought. ;)

With life being so busy over here and all the fun things going on I think it will be fun to do a challenge every other week instead of weekly. So if you'd like to create a challenge on the off weeks please let me know and you can post them here. Also, if you would like to be a designer and share your project along with the ones I make for inspiration please just shoot me an email and I'll let you  know the challenge ahead of time so that you can also help inspire others. ;)

Challenge #2~Make it clear or cut it out!

Hey beautiful crafters! This week it is just me showing you a fun project but before we do that lets show you our winner...

Donna L. You won our little prize package so please send me an email with your address to thatsmerb at gmail.com.

Okay so this week I challenge you to "make it clear" or "cut it out"!!!

Okay so let me show you what I mean...

Here is the whole spread.

 Here is what I mean by "make it clear" I'm kinda in love with adding elements that are clear. They add such a fun layer and you can still see through. ;) This cutie pie stamp is from Unity it's a stamp set called Tiny Trinity.
 Now "cut it out" anything that can be cut out with a die cut machine or the like. I cut these with my Cricut. I haven't used that thing in forever (shhh) dont tell anyone I'm a bad Cricut owner.
This is just a close up of one of my favorite cards. lol

So that's it!!! MAKE IT CLEAR OR CUT IT OUT!!! ;)

Have fun yall! This challenge is just for fun so no prizes this week.

Hope you crafty peeps have fun with this one.

Challenge #1~Let's make some lists and get stitchy!

Hey beautiful crafters! I am so excited for the very first challenge over here at Our Pocket Page Challenge Blog!

Most of us know eachother from the WONDERFUL facebook group called "Project Lifers" if you want to, look us up! We are a group of crafters who share tips tricks ideas and the like for pocket page scrapbooking!

This is a challenge for all of us and so if you would like to guest design and share your inspiration with all of us please email me at thatsmerb at gmail.com. I would love it if we had about 3-5 crafters a week guest designing and sharing their inspiration!

Okay so here we go...

This week our challenge is two fold
1.) Add stitching to your project. That can be either hand stitching, faux stitching or machine stitching. 
2. ) Include a list. I.E. Daily routine, grocery list, 5 people you text the most, the names of your childs stuffed animals, Favorite foods, favorite songs. Any type of list. 

Remember this is our life! It's not always peachies and ice cream sometimes it's messy and frustrating and down right not fun so remember the good and the bad in your spreads. ;)

Okay one last thing... This is to inspire you to get your spreads done for the week so if you only feel like doing one of the two challenge options great, if you dont feel like doing either but you would still like to share your spread great too! However, when we have prizes you will only be eligible if you follow one of the two challenge options. ;)

Jenny from Crazy About Cricut was so kind to guest design this week. Here is her wonderful spread! Isn't this just fabulous!!!

 Here is a close up on Jennys stitching and her list! SO COOL!


My Week 9


a few close ups...





And there is a little prize this week...
I hand stitched two clear crafters 3x4's and then cut up some super cute paper by Nikki Sivils to make a 10 piece set of 3x4's for one crafter. ;) I hope you beautiful crafters like it. 

Please play along with us and attach your entry below! Only one rule your project must be created between 3/7-3/13. Winners will be selected randomly by random.org on Friday and posted with the new challenge. Good luck beautiful crafters and thank you so much for playing along!!!
