FM175... Shake It!


Happy Friday! Lisa here with another Friday Mashup challenge for you!

This week I'm combining 2 of my favorite things....shaker cards and animals. It's that time of year when I start counting down the days to snow and of course that makes me think of shaker cards. I also love the abundant wildlife here in Alaska, they provide wonderful inspiration for my crafting.

So lets see what you create with animals and shaker cards! What inspires you? We here at The Friday Mashup cant wait to see your creations!




Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a Project using "Animals". 
  • Create a "Shaker card" project.
  • or Mash it up! and create a "Shaker Card with an Animal".

Cindy's Pick for FM173!


Thanks for playing along this week with my school themed color challenge! You all showed great creativity and I enjoyed hearing about and seeing your school spirit shown through your cards. It was difficult to pick just one card with all the  unique cards with the same theme but I was really taken by the sentiment on Melissa's card with the fun pencil with a heart on it. It is a bittersweet goodbye when they go back to school- you are excited for the adventures they will have but will miss them when they are gone. Congrats on being the Rock Star this week, Melissa! ~ Cindy

Well see you all back here tomorrow for a fun new challenge feature a cool technique!

Lynda's Rock Star Pick for FM172!


I just want to thank everyone this week for playing the Mashup with us. There were so many cute cards and many of them made me smile. In the end, it was very hard to choose, but I loved the way this one stood out to me.




I was so impressed with Denise's card. She used this really cool technique called the "negative" technique. She also did a great job incorporating the colors and she colored the flower beautifully. ~ Lynda






Thank you again to everyone who joined us.. We will see you all back here tomorrow for a fun new Challenge!

FM172.. Slice it up!


Good Morning everyone! Lynda here. Can you believe we are already to the second Friday in August? Summer is almost over, but we still have some time to celebrate. Whenever I think of summer, I of course think of watermelon! It's one of nature's sweet treats. I love the taste and colors. I thought it would be fun to use these colors to create our projects this week. Let's give one last shout out to summer and "slice" it up!



Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a project with " Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, Basic Black & Whisper White". 
  • Create a project with a "Wood Element".
  • or Mash it Up! and create a " Project using the colors above & a Wood element".
