FM210 It's all about the Lace!!


Good Friday morning!  Cynthia here and I'm ready to share an all new challenge for you this week!  With Spring in the air and all the pretty flowers starting to bloom, it makes me think of all those pretty butterflies to come.  When I think of butterflies it also makes me think elegant and delicate like lace.  So your challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to create a project using butterflies or lace or mash it up and create some inspiring using both.  I can't wait to see what you create!



This week's Mashup! Challenge is:
  • Create a project with "Butterflies".
  • Create a project using "Lace on it".
  • or Mash it Up! and create a project using "Butterflies and Lace".

The Challenge will close on Wednesday May 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!

Amy's Picks for FM208!



Thank you everyone who played along this week! It was fun to see what recycled items everyone came up with as well as the lovely cards that I am sure blessed the mothers in your life.  ~ Amy





I love how Anja used the tag on top with the same stamp, such a creative and unique design. All in all, a very lovely card, great job! 





Marissa's card has great balance, I love the subtle patterned paper behind the bold flower and graphic text. 


I love Jane's coordinating paper and bouquet of flowers, the card just goes together so well.

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

FM207... It's Hard to say Goodbye


Hi Everyone, it's Heidi here and it's a new month and that means it's time for a new set of Guest Designers.. we are still celebrating our Fans here at the Friday Mashup and this month our Guest designers are: 


"Hello!  My name is Jenny Engelke and I live in Northeastern Montana.  I have
been married to my husband, Alan, for 21 years and we have three boys ages
18, 17 and 10.  I've been making cards for about 19 years (wow, has it been
that long?).  I've always been a crafter and dabbled in scrapbooking, but
cardmaking is my first love! I became a Stampin' Up Demonstrator about two
years ago and have enjoyed the perks that come with that! I'm so excited to
be a guest designer with The Friday Mashup!"



"Hi, My name is Heidi Weaver.  I live Blackfalds, Alberta, a transplant from British Columbia where I grew up.  A relative newcomer to stamping (2011), I have been enjoying crafts for most of my life.  I am deeply interested in photography, family, helping animal shelters, and helping the underprivileged.  I keep busy catering to my two rescued cats, Mei Li and Khali Kho, as well as enjoying activities with my two awesome grandsons.  My daughter and family live in Blackfalds as well, making it easy to have frequent family get-togethers.  I am also on the Design Team for the Paper Craft Crew Challenge, the co-ordinator of the bi-weekly Watercooler Challenge and co-ordinator of the monthly Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop.  You can find out more on my blog, Stampin' Along With Heidi."

Welcome Ladies.. We are looking forward to see what you create each week. Be sure to stop by their blogs for more great projects and Say Hi! 

Now let's get to the challenge!! It won't be long before Stampin' Up! will be releasing a new catalog.  Let's take a moment to look back.  Grab one of your well-loved, will-never-let-go retired or retiring sets, or even just a forgotten set, and give it a new look with the sketch below.  You can use stamps from any company.  Can't want to see what you create!


This week's Mashup! Challenge:
