http://www.scraps-n-pieces.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?23-Speed-Scraps

***** Be sure to check out a couple new challenges in the forum:

Featured Designer Challenge Each month, there will be 3 designers featured. Each designer will have her shop on sale for 1 week during the month. Your challenge is to create 1-3 layouts using the 3 featured designers kits. You may use products from all 3 designers on one layout, or you can do up to 3 layouts, one from each designer.
P12 Challenge Last year, we hosted a P52 challenge with weekly prompts.  This year, your project will only require you to post one layout per month with prompts (and maybe some freebies) from the hosting designer. *****

Head on over to the Scraps N Pieces blog starting January 1 (and bookmark it too). Set yourself a reminder because you will not want to miss the Pick Up The Pieces (Download A Day).  Each piece will be available for 24 hours starting on January 1st through January 31st.  On February 1st, the kits that were given away in January will be available for sale if you want to just purchase them. Then, in February, use the pieces you picked up to scrapbook a layout for our Scrap The Pieces challenge in our forum and earn points towards FREE STUFF!

Christmas + Instagram

I’ve been doing quite a few photo related crafts at home recently and wanted to share some fun ideas with everyone!  I recently printed out a ton of instagram photos through printstagram in their 2 inch square size.

To start with I made a cute little felt wreath and added our family photos (pets included!) along with a few cute flowers.  There is a wire frame attached to the back to keep the wreath from folding in on itself.  I cut a basic felt wreath shape for the base, then cut tons of green folly leaves in a variety of green colors and hot glued it all together.  I used glue dots to secure the photos as I didn’t want the heat from the glue gun to damage the photos.  My youngest daughter had such a fun time gluing the flowers on to the wreath 🙂

wreath

 

To match the wreath, I also made a garland for my tree.  I used about 120 of the 2 inch square photos spaced about 2 inches apart on a long strand of burlap ribbon.  This only made it about half way down our tree so I’m definitely going to be ordering more photos so I can finish off the job!  I really love how this project turned out and it was really fun looking back through all my old instagram photos and picking special memories to add to my garland.

This was one of the simplest projects to complete!  I attached 2 glue dots to each photo, one on either side of the photo in the center and then simply pressed the photo onto the burlap ribbon.

I think this might be something I’d even like to display during the rest of the year somewhere in my house 🙂

The full effect on the tree.  We have some large kiddish ornaments, but on a tree with a simpler decoration theme (our theme is young child!) I think the garland would stand out beautifully 🙂

Rifles Racks and Deer Tracks by Wendy Tunison Designs

Ever since Wendy Tunison started designing, her husband has been asking her to make a hunting kit.  Oh and by the way, it must be perfect and it must include anything and everything hunting related.  LOL!  Well, she finally decided to try and tackle that request and she knows she will have to make a couple more add ons because she simply didn’t cover it all yet!  With a husband who is an avid hunter and 3 daughters following in his footsteps, I’m sure she’ll be adding more to this over the years.  But it’s a start and it’s a huge one at that!  Take a look at Rifles Racks & Deer Tracks…the kit for all your hunters and outdoor enthusiasts!

Kit Preview

Each part will be 30% off this week or you can get it all in a bundle for even bigger savings!  That’s 3 full kits and 5 add ons!  Whoot!

Take a look at the awesomeness that our creative team made with this bundle…

New October Bits n Pieces sets by Wendy Tunison Designs

Wendy Tunison Designs has cooked up a whole batch of goodies for you for the BNP sale at SNP this week!  For the first 7 days of October, you can pick up each of these pieces for just $1.00 each!

Wendy has always been a HUGE fan of creating her own planners and customizing other planners to her needs.  She’s created a fun little Artsy Planner kit for you that includes templates in 12×12, 8.5×11 and 5.5×8.5 so you can easily print your planners or simply keep them on your computer for easy reference and documenting.  She’s created the templates in gray scale so you can easily clip any paper to the pieces and play with the blend mode to truly customize your planner to your tastes and style!  Wendy also included some fun pieces to enhance your planner in this pack that I’m sure you’ll love and find that you can include in your scrapping as well!

Wt_ArtsyPlanner

Wendy has also created a couple of fun packs of Calendar Pebbles that will be great for customizing your calendar or planner or even placing on your layouts!  These fun pieces can be used as is or you can layer a color overlay on them to create a fun custom colored piece!

Wt_CalendarPebbles

Wt_CalendarPebbles2

In addition to those fun pebbles, Wendy created some date stamps to add to your layouts and planner that she thought would be fun and versatile enough to fit most any occasion or need.  This first set would be so much fun to use directly on a photo or on a journal card!  There are so many possibilities.  Simply clip any paper to them or use your favorite styles to fancy them up!

Wt_DateStamps

The second set is a little more layerable.  Simply clip your desired paper to each of the pieces or add a style and layer these onto your layout or into your planner!  So super easy and so customizable!

Wt_DateTabs

Wendy’s also created some fun washi tape because we all know how much fun that is to add to our projects!

Wt_Tainted_tape

What’s even more fun that washi tape?  Washi tape with words on it or attached to it!  These fun strips of talking tape will make it so much fun to add a title or thought to your layout!

Wt_TapeTalk

Of course, if stitches are more your style than tape for fastening things down and adding a little interest, you’ll want to pick up this fabulous stitchery set!  Wendy created each of these stitches herself and you’ll not find them anywhere else.  Full of fun autumn themed pieces and some versatile words and shapes as well, this set is so much fun to use!   She’s included some buttons and scatters as well because they simply make her happy!

Wt_Stitchery

Wendy has created some thought provoking journal card sets as well this month that would be so much fun to add to most any page or if you’re really brave, print them out and add them to your planners!

Wt_CardCrazy1

Wt_CardCrazy2

While she was on the subject of page prompts, she thought she’d create some fun little word tabs too.  Well, she just couldn’t stop and ended up with a HUGE assortment of fun words to add to your layouts.  Sized at 3 inches, these would work wonderfully as a cute title piece or you could size them down a bit and spell out some fun words with them!  Wendy tried to sort them out a little by category in case you’re looking for something specific.

D Is For Dates is just that…all about the dates you might need to document or celebrate in your life!  Included are the months of the year, days of the week, numbers, and several other fun words to use when documenting specific days!

Wt_DIsForDates

E is for Exploration is for those of you that are looking to do a little self exploration.  Perfect for conquering all of those tough subjects and an art journaler’s dream set, you’ll find this one will make you dig a little deeper!

Wt_EIsForExploration

H is for How is chock full of descriptive words.  These would be all of those silly adjectives we all love to use!  Use them as stand alone titles or group them together for some silly fun!

Wt_HIsForHow

I don’t know about you but my kids and I definitely can have some mood swings!  M is for Moody covers a wide range of moods from happy to wild and everything in between from mad to delightful!

Wt_MIsForMoody

Looking for something to describe the people in your life?  P Is For People has all the words you’ll need to describe everyone from your mother to your tween!

Do you ever need a title or word bit that covers the way you’re feeling?  S Is For State Of Mind is the perfect choice for you!

Wt_SIsForStateOfMind

W Is For Whatever is full of all the things Wendy wanted to add that didn’t quite fit into any of the other categories.  It’s a modge podge of fun words that cover a myriad of things!  If you can’t find it anywhere else, it’s probably right here in this set!

Wt_WIsForWhatever

Of course, you may want to have some papers to play with all of this!  Wendy has created two fabulous paper packs that are mostly black and white with just a hint of yellow and grey here and there.  These sets are versatile enough to work with most anything else and so much fun for adding just that bold pop of pattern to your project!

Wt_Tainted_p1

And finally, Wendy has created an awesome ellie pack full of clusterable pieces!  You know how much she loves to cluster and this pack has all of those pieces that make clustering so much fun!  There are plenty of flowers, leaves, and swirly things!
