Easter Parade!

This week at Red Carpet Studio it's time for anything goes! 

 Since it's Easter, we took our inspiration from the movie Easter Parade.

We had the opportunity to work with a great stamp set provided by Verve.  Thanks Verve!

My girls were colouring eggs for Easter and for my project, I decided to colour some too!  I got out my VersaMark and some heat embossing powder and this is what I came up with.

These little bunny egg holders would make great napkin rings for Easter dinner  too!

So please join us at Red Carpet Studio for a chance to win a gift certificate to Verve!  They have some great  sets available!  Hope to see you linking up with us, now "hop" to it!

love flutterbys

Getting a little scrappy time in today before possibly the craziest week of our lives happens!  One last skating practice, brownies, sparks, an evening work training session, two nights of curling, a skating dress rehearsal, a skating banquet followed by the skating carnival on Saturday night.  All that on top of regular work and school hours!  The five of us will need the long weekend for sure!

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Lasting Memories: Clean and Simple and a DT call

Color me Scrappy: color and stitching/tag twist

My Scraps and More: sketch challenge

BFF - RCS #28, Ribbons!

This week at Red Carpet Studio we were inspired by movie reels!  The challenge then became to use a ribbon on your layout.  Ribbons are fantastic things and can be used in so many ways.  I chose to use mine all scrunched up!

So play along, I know there is ribbon somewhere in your stash!

Our March Lucky Link-Up contest is still in progress! Every challenge entry qualifies YOU for a chance to win over $200 in gift certificates to a variety of online scrapbooking companies! View our Lucky Link-Up page for complete details.

Our sponsor this week is Love Bug Creations! One lucky, randomly chosen winner will receive their choice of a 12-yard set of rumple ribbon. Don't forget the design team will also choose their three favorite submissions to be in our spotlight!

I used the sketch from My Scraps and More Sketch blog for this layout.

2 Broke Girls Challenge blog

This is a new challenge blog and forum that has just started.  I applied for their DT but didn't make the cut.  I just thought I would share the layout I made for the application anyway!

Here is the sketch they offered:

I'm looking forward to seeing what their first challenge is and being part of their forum from the start!

I had the day off today, and I put it to scrappy use!

This photo goes back to Aubie's first, in 2009.  I am behind in my scrapping, I admit it.

I used this from Let's Get Sketchy.


One day left!

Have you created a layout with at least one button on it this week?  If so, why not link up at Red Carpet Studio for your chance to win the March Lucky Link-Up contest!

Come and join us, we hope you do!

RCS #26 - "Curious Case of Ben Button"

Good morning!

I am sharing the layout I created for this movie challenge.  It's such an easy challenge and uses something you probably already use on your layouts anyway (I can think of a few of you!). Buttons!  That's right, all you have to do is use at least one button on your layout!

I used this picture I took of the medium one running through the bubbles from a bubble blower. It's among my favourite pictures of her and also of the pictures I have ever taken.

Our sponsor this week is Close to My Heart Consultant Janet Royer! One lucky, randomly chosen winner will receive a Surf's Up Paper Packet and a Patterned Pennants stamp set! Don't forget the design team will also choose their three favorite submissions to be in our spotlight!

Don't forget!

Our March Lucky Link-Up contest has officially begun! Every challenge entry qualifies YOU for a chance to win over $200 in gift certificates to a variety of online scrapbooking companies! View our Lucky Link-Up page for complete details.

Lucky Leprechaun Blog Hop

Welcome to Day 1 of the Lucky Leprechaun Blog Hop, brought to you by the layout design team of Red Carpet Studio!

If you've come from Stephanie's blog, you're in the right place. If you've just come across the hop and would like to start at the beginning, please visit Red Carpet Studio.

This hop was put together to share with you fun and creative ideas for St. Patrick's Day projects along with introducing you to our new design team members AND officially announce our March Lucky Link-Up contest!

Before we get to all that fun information, I'd like to share my project with you. I created a layout of my babe's first St. Patrick's Day.  I had to add stitching.  I love stitching!  I used my silhouette to create the title and added the button, just because!  I used the Summer Fresh line from Simple Stories, since I love me some Simple Stories.

And of course we have some wonderful sponsors giving away prizes to those who comment both days on every stop of the hop. :)

3 digis of winner's choice

6 digital image sets

5 digital stamps

$10 gift certificate

Winners will be announced at Red Carpet Studio on Tuesday March 5th along with the winners of our wedding/anniversary card challenge.
