Scavenger Hunts are FUN! (Esepcially when accompanied by a Fancy Pants prize package worth nearly $100 retail!)

Let’s face it…we know how to have fun with an online crop.  The video portion is of no exception.  I mean how can it not be fun when we are being entertained by none other than Dan the Fancy Pants Man!

Dan was SO sweet to hang out with us and to provide us with amazing prizes for our crop.  He brought with him one pretty fantastic prize, which I wish I had photos of.  In short the kit retails for nearly $100.00, so we thought of a fun way to give it away.  For those girls that took the time to hang out with us on the chat we issued a ‘secret scavenger hunt’.  What they needed to find was:

10 buttons, 8 flowers, 7 brads, 3 chipboard shapes, 1 piece ricrac, 1 piece pink ribbon, 1 piece blue patterned paper, 1 piece Christmas paper, adhesive, trimmer & ink pad.

I had a blast seeing all of the entries come pouring in.  SO much fun to see the different varieties of trimmers and embellishments, however, I have to say that I’m completely jealous of the adhesive dispenser of our winner!

Congrats to our random winner HEATHER GRAY!  I know she will put to use the Fancy Pants kit to the max!

Heather, send us your address to orders@scrapbooksteals and we will get that delightful kit packed of Fancy Pants goodness sent out to you!

Be sure to check in tomorrow for the winners of the rest of the online crop challenges as well as the winners of the MCM cards!

Monday Card Madness #5

Monday Card Madness #5

I LOVE today’s steal, the Fancy Pants Rusted Sun and My Family card kits.

I’m sure that you are all like me and have days where I want to create but don’t necessarily want to have to *think* about creating.  Simply put, I want someone to give me the goods, the directions and an example of the finished project.  :)

That is where the beauty of the Fancy Pants card kits lies….it’s all at your fingertips, from the papers and embellishments, precise measurements, to a photo of the final look.

I didn’t time myself to see how long it took me to create all of the cards from the Rusted Sun kit, but it didn’t take me long.

After I had finished the cards I chose my favorite of the group to use as inspiration for this weeks card sketch.  I really liked the design of this happy birthday card.  I love the layers of different papers and the addition of the star stickers.

I decided to take the basic design of this card for this weeks sketch, adding a little embellishment to the top, right hand side of the page to complete the visual triangle of embellishments.

I then went to my stash of stuff and used the Bo Bunny pet papers to make this birthday card.

So there you have it!  MCM #5!

We have all been truly spoiled with the cards from last week.  Every week you girls just keep getting better and better and your creativity blossoms by leaps and bounds!

Don’t forget to post your card on our Facebook Fan Page, and leave a comment and a link on this blog post to be eligible to win a random drawing for all of the cards that I make this month…and perhaps a little something extra as well!

Stay tuned the the blog tomorrow afternoon for the announcement of the winners from our on line crop as well as the winner of the cards from MCM 1 – 4!

As always…happy scrappin’!
