Can you believe it? March is almost over and that means that the Challenge deadlines are fast approaching - time to finish your amazing projects and upload them to the Facebook Gallery and the Swirlydoos Challenge Forums...

Bec's Card Challenge for March, featuring a tutorial and an amazing prize, is all about dies.
Here's one of three cards that Betty created; I love her cluster of flowers and butterflies and die-cut vines.


We're into our final week of the March Round Robin and that means that it's time to sign up for the April Challenge. The theme this time is "Clean and Simple", and the twist is to do it Swirly Style! To find out just what that means (and to sign up for a slot), click on the link HERE.



DT Coordinator Kim has been coming up with some incredible sketches for our monthly Sketch Challenge; this one is part of  the February Love Letters Kit. To see what the Swirlydoos Design Team created, take a look HERE

Here's Ginny's take, with her wonderful use of color and mixed media and one marvelous photo.


The ATF (All That Flutters) Challenge is now open; and the rules are simple: create a project that includes something that flutters - butterflies, dragonflies, bees, angels, fairies, whatever you happen to have on hand. I just love Kim's stunning (and inspirational) page!!!

Hi everyone

The Layout of the Week this week goes to Kathi!!!
Kathi made this amazing creation for the March Round Robin challenge, the chipboard treatment on this layout is stunning, plus the colours of the papers match so perfectly with the photo and the flowers, I also love the punched edges. 

No automatic alt text available.

Congrats Kathi

Hi everyone

For today's Saturday tutorial I have a process video on how I made the Heart Shelf from the February Project add on Kit. This is a very fun kit and super easy to make. The black enamel paint and rhinestone trim from the kit inspired me to make this.


Here is my video tutorial:
There is a voice over for this video but for some reason it came out very quite, sorry about this



And my close ups






Here are the other projects that I made with the February kit and haven't shared on the blog yet.

The Anatomy of a Layout which also comes with a video tutorial. 
This layout was made with material only from the main kit.

Happy Equinox everyone!
My calendar tells me that Spring is here at last - time to shake off those Winter doldrums, wake up the mojo and start scrapping? What? The mojo is feeling a bit groggy? No problem - our Swirly Challenges are just the thing to bring it back to life!

Bec's Card Challenge for March, featuring a tutorial and an amazing prize, is all about dies.
Take a look at the beautiful card that Ginny created.


We're into our third week of the March Round Robin, and that means another round gorgeous lifts; here's Hanne's take on Kimberly's and Cheryl's pages.

I found this gorgeous layout by Renee in the Swirlydoos Facebook Gallery 


The ATF (All That Flutters) Challenge is now open; and the rules are simple: create a project that includes something that flutters - butterflies, dragonflies, bees, angels, fairies, whatever you happen to have on hand. I just love what Donna did with the fun brads and heart jump rings that Krissy included in the February "Love Letters" kit!

Good Saturday morning, Swirly Savages!
Time to grab you favorite stencil and dig into that pile of canvases that you bought on sale - we're going to create a quick and easy (I promise!) wall hanging with the February "Love Letters" kit!



I've created a tutorial on Snapguide; here's the link.

And a few closeups...

Hi Everyone, Heather here today, stopping by to say Hi and introduce myself. Just want to tell you a little about me and my creative style. 


If you don't know me already, I am from the Central United States.  I have my own little piece of heaven I share with my handy hubby Adam, and our two crazy fun kids, Olivia (8) and Maksim (7). I am an avid gardner and spend most of my time outside during the warmer months. Even scrap and craft frequently by the ponds. 


When you don't find me out there, I am usually in my studio I share with Olivia who is quite the artist herself. 

I have been creative my whole life, but started scrapbooking after my daughter Olivia was born in 2008. I really got into the mixed media in 2014 and have never looked back. I can't say I have any one style that defines me. It depends on my mood and what crazy idea 
I have thought up. But I really love anything I can get my hands dirty. My life is the focal point to most of my pieces and the kids are a huge influence on what and how they transpire.






I love three dimensional projects as well. But scrapbooking is my first love. 





I hope I can inspire some creativity and I am excited to share this journey with you all. Thank you. 

Heather

Happy Monday everyone!
Well, most of us are experiencing the switch to Daylight Savings Time and a lot more of you will be setting your clocks ahead in two more weeks. And what does that mean for all of us Swirly Savages? Why, one more hour of daylight for scrapping, of course! Why not take advantage of this and join in one (or more) of out Challenges this week?

Bec's Card Challenge for March, featuring a tutorial and an amazing prize, is all about dies.
Take a look at the beautiful card that Kathi created.


We're into our second week of the March Round Robin and that means we're going to start seeing a lot of gorgeous lifts; here's Ginny's take on Sherri's design.


DT Coordinator Kim has been coming up with some incredible sketches for our monthly Sketch Challenge; this one is part of  the February Love Letters Kit. To see what the Swirlydoos Design Team created, for our inspiration, take a look here

I found this gorgeous layout by Donna in the Swirlydoos Facebook Gallery


The ATF (All That Flutters) Challenge is now open; and the rules are simple: create a project that includes something that flutters - butterflies, dragonflies, bees, angels, fairies, whatever you happen to have on hand. Your project doesn't need to be a layout; take a look at what DT Member Jan did with the granite heart that came in the February "Love Letters" kit.
