Scrap Whispers is a scrap-lifting game where players take inspiration from each other's scrap-book pages. We also run weekly challenges for players and non-players alike. For more information, see How To Play. Welcome!
Ooh we have a fun challenge for you this week! Our very own Nancy has created an awesome sketch for you to play with - and it is so versitile - just look what our DT did with it! Nancy's challenge is to use her great sketch BUT you also have to use a stamp of some kind on your layout too!
Hows that for a curve ball?! :)
Here is the sketch:
and this is what the DT did with it:

Hi Everyone, hope you are enjoying your weekend! We have another challenge for you - this week it has been set by Nilsa!
Nilsa says "There are many Digital Scrappers out there! One of my favorite digital scrappers is Kenna her gallery can be found at http://www.scrapjazz.com/myjazz/index.php?mod=galleries&u=225 She makes it seem so easy and yet so much fun! Please link us to the person you lifted and don’t forget to give them credit"
So there we have it - lots of inspiration today. If you are already a digi scrapper then why not try and scraplift a paper scrapper instead. Link us to your layouts on this post or in our gallery by midnight on Sunday 20th Sept to be in with a chance of winning the Making Memories album and papers.
Remember a couple of months ago we did a guest designer blog hop for 4 weeks? Well, it was so popular - we decided to bring it back! Woohoo! This time however we will be shining the scrapwhisper spotlight on one of our very own scrapwhisper fans!
This month our favourite member is..... Rosey, otherwise known in our forum as redsquirrel.
You can check out Roseys blog here and go and leave her some love. She has some great work and having recently purchased some copic markers is weaving her magic on some gorgeous cards.
Rosey is English and currently living in Singapore. She started scrap-booking last year when she decided to make an album for her in-laws’ Ruby Wedding anniversary. She only gave herself about 10 weeks so it was a real baptism by fire. She went on an afternoon’s basic course at her local scrap-booking shop, threw herself into it completely, and the last page was finished the morning she collected her in-laws from the airport for their holiday with her and her hubby! Rosey's home is in the UK’s beautiful west country, and someday they'll be moving back.
Rosey says that scrap-booking is pretty big in Singapore (but not card-making) and she is lucky enough to live within 20 minutes’ walk of 4 craft shops. Although most of the same brands are imported from the US, the UK, and Australia, the style is very different there from the west, with many-layered dimension and a busy hotch-potch of embellishments and colours being very popular.
Rosey by nature is a linear, ordered, colour-coordinated person, so mixing her instincts with the local ideas is a challenge. But she really love challenges: that little push out of her comfort zone always ends up taking her somewhere really interesting. Strangely enough, she also gets inspired by other people’s requests for ideas. In thinking of ways to help them, she finds her own imagination going into over-drive, and then she just has to try her ideas out for herself.
Rosey says she always has half a dozen projects in various stages of completion. "I’m very much into re-purposing, recycling, re-using and not wasting anything. Even non-acid-free things are made into cards, and ribbons intended to hang clothes up by, end up in my ribbon boxes. I have a personal challenge not to cut into a new piece of designer paper to make a card, and I save every tiny scrap of paper. Once it’s too small to punch anything out of, it goes into a bag, and one day I’m going to turn all my scraps into pulp and use it to make new embellishments. Well that’s the plan"
In honour of Rosey being "member of the month" all of the scrapwhispers DT have scraplifted her layouts and cards and are displaying them on their blogs today. So join us in our member of the month blog hop and look out for some additional blog candy on your way.
Welcome back to all our scrapwhisperer followers! We hope you enjoyed your two week break and all refreshed and raring to go! If you signed up for the next round of the team whisper challenge then the team announcements are being posted in the forums today - go check out which team you are on, who is your design team leader and whats going to happen!
If you missed the sign ups this time, we're sorry but we are unable to take on any more participants now. However, the next team game sign ups will begin on 1st November so check back with us often and you can sign up to play then.
Each week whilst the team game is happening, we hold weekly challenges for anyone and everyone to play. You do not have to be signed up to the team game, the forums or our gallery. You simply need to enjoy a challenge, like scrapbooking or card making and have somewhere online you can upload your creations to so you can link us too them! International applicants are welcomed - so the only excuse you have for not playing along is if you have a pile of ironing you have been ignoring for a while! :)
That brings us nicely onto this weeks challenge....
