----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Are you ready for our next fun challenge? The DT is sharing with you their take on a great technique...Artistic Trading Cards (ATC). Never made one before you say?!?! Here is a video by DT Sandy giving you the basics on ATCs...

Here are the inspiration pieces created by SBC DT making their own ATCs- Artistic Trading Cards

 Carolyn - Granny Ma's Creations
My tip:  using scraps or pages out of old books come in handy for ATC's.

Cristina - VintagePink39
My Tip: Make a couple of these for some cute gift tags, or to hand out with your blog or other info on the back.

Tip: Mod Podge is a great adhesive when making ATCs!

Tip: When creating something outside of your comfort
zone create something you will use in your own crafting.
(check out my blog post for what this will be used for)

TiP:  Make your ATC a reflection of you by using things and techniques that you love!

 Marilyn - Marilyn's Crafts
Tip:  Create your own chipboard by gluing 3 pieces of regular card stock together.

Jennyfer - Jennyfer Creates
Tip: Use your favorite supplies and show off what you're good at!

We hope this technique inspired you along with the great design team projects. Your challenge:

Create a card or layout (2 chances to win with a layout) using the theme: 
"Love is in the Air"
 (hearts, xoxo, birds, skys, pinks, reds, etc.)

*****You do NOT have to do the "Artistic Trading Cards
 technique" for your project, just make sure it follows the challenge theme:
 Love is in the Air*****

This challenge ends on Saturday, Feb 15th at 9:00pm EST.  Also, you can join up to our Facebook group: Scrapbook Blessings Club for more fun, games, inspiration, tips and techniques.

  4. Just a quick question--the rules on the challenge rules page state "May enter multiple times as long as each submission is with a different creation". However, on the challenge post it states, 3 times. I'm wondering if you could clarify which it is. Thanks so much!

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
