Welcome to Challenge 30!!

Welcome to Challenge 30! At the end of January we will be awarding 5
free digi stamps from our monthly sponsor - one random winner will take them all !! Be sure you are linking up your submissions here to be eligible for that drawing.


Pink Cat Studio is our Grand Prize sponsor for this month and you'll see a number of their darling stamps used on our Designer Team projects all month long as well! Pink Cat Studio is all about offering fun and whimsical stamps to inspire your creativity. They have a huge selection of super cute digi and rubber stamps to choose from and they add more each week. Owner and artist Melissa started PCS in 2005 and over the years nothing has excited and inspired her more than to see your creations with her stamps. Melissa’s goal is to continue to delight & surprise you with her designs. Stop by the studio today and get in on the fun!


At Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker, we create distinctive and original designs. Our designs are based upon two core beliefs which also serve as the foundation for our company and everything we do to support it.

We believe that scrapbooking, card making and crafting are always:

1) Authentic artistic expressions; and
2) Created with love

Our designs are driven by imagination; we strive to be different, not for the sake of being different, but to inspire you to express yourself in meaningful and fun ways. We mix elements from different sources, including styles, colors and materials. Our designs are genuinely eclectic. Our papers use vibrant colors with unique patterns and often contain irresistible characters. We are authentic in intention, action and results. We have achieved our goal if you are inspired (and tickled) when you see our paper.


Scraplift a Papercraft Star Creative Team Member

Scraplift ANY project on ANY of our current Papercraft Star Creative Team Member's blogs. You can see a list of all of our Creative Team Members right here. Be sure to add a link (or tell us) what Designer and what project you scraplifted from in your personal blog post so we can check it out!

Senior Design Team

This scraplifted piece comes directly from Tracy ! Jan has wanted to do the woven paper idea ever since she saw it on Tracy's blog. But why stop at just that ? Jan did her best to do a whole Tracy inspired card, from the flowers, to the punch, to the ribbon, to the sentiment. Do you think she succeeded ? Check it out, at Jan's blog.

Liz had a lot of fun going through all the talented Design Team's work. She chose to use C's card from challenge 29 as her inspiration as she felt it was perfect for making her tag. She used the very cute stamp from Pink Cat Studio and lots of pink on her tag which she added onto a layout of her beautiful baby girl. Check out her blog to see how she used the tag on her layout.

Tracy has scrap lifted Design Team member Kim. You can see Kim's card here. Tracy has used a Pink Cat Studio stamp called "Lily Bee" and colored her with Copic markers. Although Kim's card was classy and elegant, her design works for any kind of style including this whimsical little bee girl.

Regan had a ton of fun with this challenge! She found that it was no problem finding inspiration or a project to scraplift from the talented ladies on our team. Regan chose to scraplift these fun tags by Kim to make some Valentines! Kim has a great tutorial for these cute little tags that is super easy to follow! For more photos and details, please visit her blog!

Design Team

Kimberly was inspired to "scrap lift" a card from our talented Design Team member Tracy. You can see Tracy's original card here. Kim followed Tracy's layout and simply replaced the colors to create this cheerful card. Kim thought the "Itty Bitty Betty Baked a Pie" digi stamp from Pink Cat Studio was the perfect image to replicate Tracy's card. Even the polka-dot apron matches the patterned paper! For more inspiration, be sure to stop by Kim's blog at Paper Loves Glue.

Angi loved Jan's card from Challenge 28. She couldn't wait to "Scraplift" the design. Jan kept the cute little birdie as the focal point of her card. Angi also liked the color scheme of Jan's card so she used bright and colorful chipboard from My Mind's Eye for her design. To see more "Scraplift" fun please be sure to check out Angi's blog.

Jen borrowed the colors and layout from the card Kim did for challenge 28 and made this card with another adorable image from Pink Cat Studio! Head on over to her blog to read more about her inspiration and why she loved Kim's card so much!

C created a layout for this week's challenge inspired by Kristina's blog post that featured a wonderful layout sketch. She chose to use her fun new Cosmo Cricket paper (Togetherness) and show off a cute photo of her best friend's cute puppy named Cricket. For more details about this layout go to C's blog!

Our team had a blast copying from one another, and we think you will too ! Link up between NOW and Saturday noon (Eastern US) for a chance to win either our monthly or weekly prize. Voting closes Monday at noon. We are really looking forward to see what you have done with our fun challenge this week !!

Be sure to return tomorrow for a tutorial from Jen, and Friday's exec reveal with Kristina !!
