Happy Birthday to everyone who has a Birthday in March!

& Happy Birthday to two of our designers  who have birthday’s this month, Kelly Starsky  & Heidi  Barclay. 

Kelly is our host for this month’s Birthday challenge.   Now that DIY crafts and projects are more popular than ever I am sure many of us make special gifts for the people in our life.  But for this challenge, please make sure it reflects a Birthday.  It can be a Birthday card, layout of a Birthday or a Birthday party decorations.

Here is what the winner of this months’ challenge will get from Kelly.

Also add our challenge to your post so everyone knows how to find the challenge too. Keep in mind that my design team visits everyone’s page and we all try to leave comments for everyone who enters. This takes a long time to do, but it is easier if you don’t have your word verification on.

Thank your for visiting our challenges, we look forward to seeing what you do for Birthdays! Also don’t forget to check out our list ahead of time.. we keep it posted on our challenge page.. yep you can get ahead of the game and see what the challenge will be each month.  We hope to see you enter our Favorite Things Friday posts too.. next one is next Friday.


Favorite Things Friday~Journals & Notebooks





Today’s Favorite Things Friday post is showing off our notebooks, journals, or calendars.. something almost everyone has.  Show us your favorite journal or notebook that you are currently using or maybe one you just finished in 2013.  The reason for our Favorite Things Friday posts, is to help get people posting more often. This is not a challenge where we vote for a winner and you get a prize.. it’s a challenge to see if you can share your Favorite Things every Friday!   This might just help get you going and it gives you a reason to share some of your favorite things too. So link up a photo of your Favorite Things Friday~ Journals or Notebooks.. then write a post on your page for all of your readers to see to.

Here is a look at some of the designers favorite things Friday.

Design Team Call for my Challenges & Favorite Things Friday Post!~

Do you like participating in Challenges?  Do you like the idea of being on a Design Team,  but you just don’t want to commit to 6 months or a year?  Do you like sharing your Favorite things with other crafters?  If you answered yes.. then my simple, low key, monthly challenges, and bi-weekly favorite things Design Team may be for you.

I have a challenge the 1st of every month and I will also have “My Favorite Things Friday” posts every other Friday, sometimes every Friday.  I am looking for a few more girls who will participate in 2 projects per month.   My challenges are posted months in advance and the Favorite Things Friday schedule is already made for the next few months as well.  How easy is that you can create whatever you want as long as you follow the challenge or Favorite Things Schedule.  I have a private FB page where we load the projects, meet the other designers, pick your own schedule, and you decide which challenges you want to do.   No one is expected to participate in all of the challenges, I am very laid back about the team.  This is just for fun!  I have been doing monthly challenges since 2011, this is the 1st year where I will be adding the Friday Favorite Things post.

I am looking for Paper Crafters, Stampers, Mixed Media, Material Girls, etc…. 3 month’s commitment, you will need a Facebook account, blog/website.

If you have Instagram, Pinterest, and Twitter that’s great~  I love a crafty girl who loves to use Social Media to share our posts and projects!

I do all the posting on my own website.. you only have to post on your site and add the proper links.

I do send all of my designers random packages of crafty supplies.

We all leave comments for the entries we get from the challenges!  We like to receive comments too!

Our private Facebook page.. is really important.. that is where we load the photo’s needed for each challenge and Favorite Things Friday post.  We also share other info their and the schedule.

Everyone that is currently on my team.. have been with me over a year… I have NEVER let anyone go… you leave when you want to go!  Every designer that has left, left due to their busy schedules or family situations.  So when I say this is a VERY EASY and fun design team to be on.. it really is.


Our next Favorite Thing post is tomorrow and our new Challenge begins on February 1st.. so in order to get new designers on board soon, I am ending the call on January 31st.. which just so happens to be my 6 YEAR ANNIVERSARY for Scrap It Girl!



This is what I need you to send me:

  • name, address, email address
  • blog/website link
  • links to pinterest, instagram, twitter if you have them
  • pics. of 3 projects you made w/ in the last 3 months
  • a list of current design teams and past design teams
  • and let me know why you are interested in being on this design team

I forgot to mention, this is the 1st time I ever had a design team call.  I have always just asked people to be on the team or I have had many ask to be on the team with out ever having a call.

I look forward to this call, hope you apply!

my email address is

find Scrap It Girl on Facebook and let me know you applied~ Can’t wait~



Got Wood? New Challenge~

Yes, it’s another challenge.. the monthly challenge is still going on but I thought I would add another challenge to change things up a bit.  You can find our Back to School September challenge here.

GOT WOOD is the new challenge.  It’s time to use your wood veneer pieces, wood chips, wood scraps, or do a home decor wood project.  My team did a Wood Album from Genuinely Jane Studios.  I am a designer for them and thought it would be fun to give each of my girls a book.  This is what we did.  We are only showing 10 of the books they currently sell, they also sell other mixed media products and goodies for all your crafty needs.

If you would like to purchase one of these books or view other designs, check out the Genuinely Jane Studios website to view, purchase, get new ideas, and more..  If you order a book soon, you will still have time to enter it in this challenge.

If you are a local friend.. I carry several of the designs in my store.  The great thing about  these books is that they are all WOOD.. so you can pretty much do what ever you want to them.  Any and all mixed media products word great.  Bust out stencils, paints, heat guns, glue guns, whatever.. and they don’t have to be used as a book.  I made ornaments and tags.  Maya made a wall hanging.  So many options.

Now to get started with our challenge.. we have a prize of wood products pictured above. You may enter twice. Refer to my rules of challenges from the challenge page. Be sure to share our challenge with your other friends, sense know one will be expecting to see another challenge from us this month. Now time to keep busy working on your wood projects.. I know you have wood somewhere~ Get creative.

A winner will be announced on Oct. 1st along w/ the winner from our other challenge.
