Fabulous Friday Challenge!

Friday, December 31, 2010

Happy New Year's Eve everyone! At a time of year when everyone is reflecting on their lives and the goals they have set for the upcoming year.... we, here at Frosted Designs, have done some reflecting and have set some goals of our own! It has been 6 months since the new team has been in place and we have already seen several changes. We want to continue to grow and change to meet the needs of all of you! Here are some things you have to look forward to in the upcoming year....

*We are going to continue to challenge those of you who are so faithful to join us and participate each week by using supplies you already have with techniques that challenge your creativity!

*We are going to provide tutorials to help crafters of all levels to create better layouts, cards and projects!

*We are going to continue to provide one of a kind sketches to challenge you to create the best cards and layouts that you can!

*We will continue to provide inspiration from our design team that gets you excited about creating and sharing the things you create.

*As we continue to grow with new followers, we are hoping to provide prizes that get you excited about playing along!

*We are going to be featuring many new guest designers this year!

Hopefully these goals get you excited to join along each week with our Fabulous Friday Challenges and our Sketch Along Tuesday Challenges! So.... Now it is time to start the new year off with a new challenge! This week we are asking you to use a quote on your card, layout or project!

Lia Stampz, digital stampsWe have a fabulous new sponsor this week.... Lia Stampz! Please take some time to check out the adorable selection of digi stamps available in her store! You can find her store HERE! The winner of this week's challenge will get to choose 3 digi stamps of their choice!

"Tired of same old digis? Want something new, unique and original? Check out Lia Stampz. And if you happen to pass by, make sure you check the newest discounts and drop a line for the chance to win free digis!"

Here are some examples from our design team for using quotes....

Barb used the digi image from this week's sponsor, Lia Stampz to add a fun embellishment to her page. Because the water from the sprinkler was hard to see in the photo, Barb added some stickles on top of the photo and onto the umbrella the frog is holding!

Crystal is trying to scrap pictures of her tour in Iraq, this is the second in the series. The quotes that she used are found at the bottom of her journaling block : "Freedom is NOT free" and "A battle buddy-24/7-has your back" The pictures are from the first few weeks (top) and last few days (bottom) of her tour. This battle buddy is now Caitlyn's "God Father" for lack of a better word, and is a part of her family now.

Libeeti used the quote to go along with the photo of her eldest in the middle of a flourishing field. She used DCWV cs and October Afternoon's dp. Butterflies - some are punched - MS, with some rhinestones, and some are rub-ons. In the middle of the winter, it is so nice to
remember that spring will come, eventually

Libeeti also made this "thank you" card, using an image from our sponsor for this challenge, Lia Stampz, and a quote from Raindropecho:

Lori used her Gypsy and the Paper Lace cartridge to create the background and title for this page.  The flowers are cream paper flowers that she inked with Tim Holtz silver alcohol ink.  Throw in a few gems and some Black Diamond stickles and it is complete!
Angela also used a digi from Lia Stampz to create this adorable card! She added some twine, a button and a ticket to finish it off!

Diana used a stamp from Lia Stampz for the card. Papers are from fancy pants and the ribbon is from bobunny.

Ruth said, "One of my favorite quotes:  The Glory of God is a human being fully alive."
Ruth chose to use our tuesday sketch by Debbie for this layout.  She flipped it around just for fun.  She also loved that she could use up bits & pieces.....scraps from a scrapbook kit to create this layout.

We would love to see your card, layouts and projects using quotes! Be sure to link up your project for a chance to win 3 digi stamps from Lia Stampz!
