Lisa here, bringing you a new Friday Mashup challenge! Even though today is Halloween many folks are already planning for Thanksgiving here in the U.S. and thinking about all they are thankful for. I know for me it's been a year full of changes, some good and some bad, but I'm thankful for all that I have and I'm always looking for ways to show my friends and family how thankful I am for them. 

That inspired this challenge....a Thanksgiving or thankful themed project! Boxes also seem to be popular in paper crafting right now so create a box ....it can be a star shape, a box in a bag, card in a box....let your imagination soar! I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!


Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a "Box Project". 
  • Create a project with a "Thanksgiving or Thankful Theme".
  • or Mash it Up! and create a "Thanksgiving- or Thankful-Themed Box".

Heidi's Pick for FM 183!


I hope I didn't scare you with this week's challenge.  If you haven't given iron-off embossing a try, you really should.  It is a lot of fun!



Thank you, Karo, for joining our challenge twice!  Your tea bag booklet is simply adorable!  Thanks so much for sharing. ~ Heidi

We will see you back here tomorrow for a fun new challenge!!!

Friday Mashup #183!


Hi, It's Heidi, and it's my turn to host the Friday Mashup challenge. This week is a color challenge
(Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist & Baked Brown Sugar) plus a technique. I chose iron-off embossing, since I have never tried it.

First stamp and heat emboss your image. Then use the embossing as a resist to color your background. You could sponge, watercolor, or use direct-to-paper technique, among others. Once the background is done, use scratch paper and a medium-heat iron to remove the melted embossing powder to leave a flat, mat finish.  Please join us, and have fun!


Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a project with "Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist & Baked Brown Sugar". 
  • Create a project with the "Iron-Off Embossing Technique".  Link to technique HERE.
  • or Mash it Up! and create a "Project using the colors above & the Iron-Off Embossing Technique".

Holly's Rock Star Pick for FM 182!


Welcome back to the Friday Mashup.... Wow you guys totally ROCK'd the Galaxy technique challenge. I loved seeing all the different ways everyone tackled it and too see I was not alone with trial and error ..lol 

You didn't make it easy once agin but I've narrowed my choices down and this week's Rock Star is:



I love how Jen's project came out with a lighter background and she used a mixture of different mediums to get the effect.. The white really pops against the background and I love the "pun" in the sentiment! 

This week's Glamette is:


Tracey's card is stunning with the dark background and how the lighter colors really pop out! I like how she added the Moon and Stars but they blend in a little with the background allowing the White sentiment to really stand out! 

Congrats Ladies!!! And a Thank You again to everyone who joined us... We will see you all back here in just a few hours with a fun new Color Challenge and Heidi has another Technique for us. Here's a hint...You'll need your Iron!

Cindy's Rock Star pick for FM181!


Oh my gosh... picking a winner this week was so difficult! You all blew me away with your creative takes on the MashUp. It took me forever to pick just ONE as a Rock Star - my mind kept going back to the adorable little ghost on Claire's wine tag.

Congrats on creating a tag that was a feast for the eyes, Claire!
I have no doubt my fellow DT members will pick all my runners up!
 Thanks so much for playing along this week, friends. ~ Cindy

FM181... Tag it!!


Hey gang! It's Cindy, and I think it's time to start thinking of holiday gift giving- a hostess gift for Thanksgiving, co-worker treats, and just plain general Christmas gift tagging. Let's all share our ideas with a challenge this week of creating a TAG for a bottle, box, or bag. You can Mash It Up by adding some bling. Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with that can inspire me with my gift tagging this year! 




Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  • Create a "Tag for a Bottle, Box or Bag". 
  • Create a project with "Bling". 
  • or Mash it Up! and create a "Tag with Bling".
