Roses are Red Crop

This weekend scrapbookdeals4u.com is hosting a Valentine crop online. There are 12 challenges and several games going on. So far I have created layouts and projects for almost all of the challenges. Most of what I created was with the Feb "All You Need is Love" kit. Here is my stuff!


#1 a Menu Challenge
You pick your menu, later its revealed what scrappy supplies match up with your order and you create a layout from that order! So fun!
This was my order:

Frozen Margarita.......................................Solid White
Shrimp cocktail .........................................ribbon
Grilled Halibut.............................................must have only 2 photos
Garlic mashed potatoes...............................ink
Classic Chocolate Cake.......................................................your choice

***Mandatory Champagne Toast to Celebrate Martha's Birthday!!!

I also used an Inspired Blueprints sketch for inspiration.


#2 This is based on an exclusive sketch by Kristine Davidson of Creative Scrappers. She is one of our 2 brand new designers at sd4u and we are so excited she is here too!

This is the sketch:





I covered these chipboard hearts with Glimmer Mist, Glossy Accents, and Martha Stewart Glitter. They look super pretty in person!

#3 was to craft something with your kids.

Wes and I made this Valentin box for his school party. I covered it in paper and deco tape. Wes applied the stickers when his homework was done. I've never seen him do his homework as eagerly before! lol

I'm still working on #4!


#5 is a challenge where you are assigned a secret "crush" and you have to scraplift them. I lifted DT KrisB's wonderful layout from the gallery!

#6 was to create anything with typical Valentine colors and neutrals. I had some girls over the other night and this was the project I created with them. I taught them how to make the paper roses. The frames one was my sample and the other one I created as we went along that night.




#7 was to be mostly red and/or pink and journal about why you love your subject.

I love those Jenni Bowlin alphas (My Tiny) and the Glimmer mist on this page. I also glimmer misted the hearts and covered them with Glossy Accents.

#8 was to use fancy flowers and bling on a layout. I used a Magpie sketch by Julie Bonner for this one.


#9 was like an ad inspiration, but it was of the family and Steve needed a pic of the family today for church. I forgot to take a pic bewfore he left. (I'm home with 2 sick kids)

#10 is not yet done.

#11 was a challenge by Martha. One of the parts of the challenge was to create these paper roses. They are not that hard and look pretty fantastic. Thanks for the tutorial Martha!


and last but not least was #12, use a love song in your title.


So, there are my projects for the crop. Have you been playing along. You have until Monday to upload your work to the forum. Did you know that they grand prize is a 3 month DT spot???
