Heidi's Picks!!!



We got some great submissions to the challenge this week.  I love to see how creative our stampers are to combine zoo animals with various occasions cards, including Valentine's.  

This week's Rock Stars are....





Year of the Red Monkey by Yapha

I was impressed how Yapha was able to combine a fancy fold, monkey, and Chinese New Year card all into one.  I had wanted to do this myself, and couldn't pull it off, and Yapha handled the challenge beautifully!  I love the gold vellum with the red card stock beneath.






I had a hard time deciding which entries of Jill's to choose.  Make sure you go check out her other fancy fold entry!  I chose this one because of the fancy step fold and the monkey business.  Great job!



Another great entry!  I love the double slider card... what an adorable scene unveiled when you pull the ribbon!  Thanks so much for playing along.

Lisa's Picks!!!


A big thank you to all who played along with the music/sketch challenge! It was great to see folks thinking outside of the box for the music portion!
This week's Rock Stars are....





Sonja's card is a terrific tribute to one of her favorite musicians, David Bowie. I love that she interpreted the music theme with images that evoked his stage personas! Wonderfully done!


Kim did a wonderful job of mashing up the challenge! Her panels of hearts and music notes looks fab, and the singing bird in the nest is too cute. Great job!

Thanks again to everyone who joined us.. we'll see you back here tomorrow for a new challenge.

FM240 It's Music to my ears!!!


Happy Friday everyone.. Before we get to this week's challenge we have a sad goodbye and a warm welcome......

We're welcoming a new Design Team member this week as well and saying goodbye to our Design Team Member Tara Bourgoin. Tara has been a part of the team since it started.. she will be greatly missed. We wish her the best of luck in all her new adventures.

Please give a Friday Mashup Welcome to our newest member Jayme Ziemer!


"I'm Jayme! I'm a married mother of two who just needs time in the day to create. When I'm not paper crafting, you can find me playing roller derby with the Fairbanks Rollergirls and sweating it out in my home living room gym dreaming of food (or coffee which I've recently started binge drinking--making up for lost time). I'm so excited to be part of the Friday Mashup team because it was the very FIRST challenge blog I ever submitted to SO many years ago while living overseas! I'm excited to share with you every week and be inspired by all of your beautiful creations!"

Let's get Stamping.....

Happy Friday! Lisa here, bringing you a new Friday Mashup. In my household music is a big part of our lives and I can't imagine not having my favorite songs and bands to carry me through different periods of my life. What does music mean to you? 

Maybe it's a certain artist that you just can't get enough of, or maybe it's as simple as birds outside your window on a sunny day, their melody being carried throughout the neighborhood. However you want to interpret "music", let's see it on your projects! I've also got a simple sketch to go along with the music theme.

As always, just have fun with the challenge!



Sketch by Lisa

This week's Mashup Challenge is:  
  • Create a project using the Sketch.
  • or Create a project with a Music Theme.
  • or Mash it up! and create a Music theme project using the Sketch. 
The challenge will close on Wednesday January 27th @ 6pm EST. Be sure to read the guidelines above under "about the FM" if you are new to our challenge and Welcome. We can't wait to see what you create with this fun Mash' Up! Check out what the Design Team created below!
