Get Baking with Moxxie

Baking, it's one of my favorite kitchen activities (well besides the eating part) and now that I have children nothing has been more fun then baking with them. Just recently I scrapbooked some favorite cupcake baking photos and I love the pages. Such memories quickly fade but preserving them in scrapbooks is a wonderful way to keep those precious - but fleeting - moments alive.

We're pleased to offer a new baking-inspired paper line from Moxxie, Bake Shoppe. The colors in this paper are so pretty; very soft and muted. Perfect for photos of your little girls baking or perhaps a girlfriends weekend away where far too many sweets are ingested. :-)

Stop by and check out this great new paper line this weekend!

Takeover Challenge #5 - Tags

Welcome to our next challenge! We only have two challenges left and prizes lining up so...who is up for playing along? Today's challenge is all about tags! Anyone who knows me knows that I love all things Tim Holtz and while I have a few tags that are duplicates of the ones that he has created, I also have a collection of tags that are very different and simply use some of the techniques. But before I get to today's tag, let's review those challenge rules!

1) Challenges will be posted on Mon., Wed., & Fri. this week.
2) You will have two days to complete your challenge project.
3) Project photos must be posted on our Facebook page, either in a wall post or in the photo album labeled, "Takeover Challenges."
4) At the end of each challenge, I will select a winner and that person will win free product.
5) If you participate in every challenge then you will be entered into the grand prize drawing, which will be selected the week of August 15.

Today's tag features designer paper from Kaiser Craft, flowers by Petaloo, baubles by Tim Holtz, and rhinestones by Prima. This was a super easy card to create as I used the designer paper as the background image for the tag. Then I simply needed to add embellishments...the most fun part! I also added a stamped ticket from the "Odds and Ends" stamp set to the tag and attached it using a mini paper clip (also from Tim). Super fun and easy tag!

For today's challenge, you have until midnight on Thursday, August 11 to create your project and post in on our Facebook page, either in a wall post or in the album titled "Takeover Challenges." Remember...prizes are involved for those who participate in the challenges!

Takeover Challenge #4 - Glitter

Welcome to our first Takeover Challenge of week two!! Today's challenge is to use glitter! And I am so excited about today's project! This is a technique I've been meaning to try out for months and I finally had a chance to play with this great sticker product. But first let's get to the challenge rules...

1) Challenges will be posted on Mon., Wed., & Fri. this week.
2) You will have two days to complete your challenge project.
3) Project photos must be posted on our Facebook page, either in a wall post or in the photo album labeled, "Takeover Challenges."
4) At the end of each challenge, I will select a winner and that person will win free product.
5) If you participate in every challenge then you will be entered into the grand prize drawing, which will be selected the week of August 15.

On to today's project! One of our customers taught a class in the Spring using Elizabeth Craft stickers and glitter. I was amazed at her beautiful cards but couldn't attend the class so I just picked up a set of these cupcake stickers. (We have a wonderful selection of these stickers in the store!)

To make these images you place one of the outline stickers on top of a sheet of wonder tape (also called Red Line tape). You'll want the sheets of these tape, not the roll. I cut out a piece of wonder tape that was just a bit larger than the sticker. I then poured a very fine white/clear glitter over the wonder tape, pressing down to adhere the glitter to the glue. Shake off the excess and then...color right on top of the glitter with Copic markers!! Love, love, love the results! Isn't it the coolest thing ever! It's even more shimmery in person, which you can check out as this card is in the store!! **Smile** I ended up cutting out the cupcake image and used foam tape to pop it up on a Nestibilities circle. (The designer paper is from October Afternoon).

For today's challenge, you have until midnight on Tuesday, August 9 to create your project and post in on our Facebook page, either in a wall post or in the album titled "Takeover Challenges." Remember...prizes are involved for those who participate in the challenges!

Takeover Challenge #3 - Layout Challenge

Welcome to our third Takeover Challenge!! I figured it was high time that I used a scrapbook page as part of our challenges..You know seeing as Wholly Scrap! is a scrapbook store! :-)

Today's challenge is to create a one-page scrapbook page, my layout above. And I'm going to make today's challenge even easier...You can either create a page following my layout or create a cooking-themed page. Here are the rest of the rules regarding the challenges:

1) Challenges will be posted on Mon., Wed., & Fri. for the next two weeks.
2) You will have two days to complete your challenge project.
3) Project photos must be posted on our Facebook page, either in a wall post or in the photo album labeled, "Takeover Challenges."
4) At the end of each challenge, I will select a winner and that person will win free product.
5) If you participate in every challenge then you will be entered into the grand prize drawing, which will be selected the week of August 15.

I only recently started scrapbooking and I love it! It's such a great way to document special and every day memories. Seeing the photos above I'm reminded that just a few days before our youngest had been sick. He was finally starting to feel a little bit better (I think he's still in his jammies in the photos) and we decided to bake some cupcakes...because cupcakes always make one feel pretty darn good!

The paper on my layout is from Kaiser Kraft, the Nan's Favorites collection. We still have a few pieces of this paper left but it was a good seller! The collection came with coordinating die cut images, which are just perfect for adding a little bit of fun to scrapbook pages.

For today's challenge, you have until midnight on Saturday, August 6 to create your project and post in on our Facebook page, either in a wall post or in the album titled "Takeover Challenges." Remember...prizes are involved for those who participate in the challenges!

Enjoy and be sure to keep an eye out for tomorrow's news...

Takeover Challenge #1 - Core-dinations

Welcome to day one of the Wholly Scrap! Takeover! I'll be posting here every day for the next two weeks, while Denise and her family is on a vacation...where there aren't any phones or internet.....oh, if she only knew what I was up to!! :-)

Today we start with a challenge!! Participating in our challenges is the only way to be entered in to our prize drawings so please read all of the rules carefully!

1) Challenges will be posted on Mon., Wed., & Fri. for the next two weeks.
2) You will have two days to complete your challenge project.
3) Project photos must be posted on our Facebook page, either in a wall post or in the photo album labeled, "Takeover Challenges."
4) At the end of each challenge, I will select a winner and that person will win free product.
5) If you participate in every challenge then you will be entered into the grand prize drawing, which will be selected the week of August 15.



Today's challenge is to use Core-dinations paper on your project, which can be a card, scrapbook page, or anything three-dimensional. You may use any variation of Core-dinations. For example, on my card I used the new embossed Core-dinations, which comes with designs already embossed in to the cardstock. The store is well stocked with Core-dinations paper, in plain colors, and also embossed. Cost runs from .45-.85/per 12x12 sheet.

I paired the alphabet Core-dinations cardstock with this stunning designer paper from Graphic 45, "The Magic of Oz." One of the things I love about this paper line is that it comes with cards and other images that can be easily cut out and used as a focal point on a card or scrapbook page. Since Dorothy is the star of Oz, I had to use her as my main image. And taking a design tip from Donna-Marie, I added two pearl stick pins to my card as an embellishment, along with red-glitter chipboard stars and black rhinestones. (We have a limited supply of these beautiful, vintage stick pins in stock...3 for $1.00!) I also cut out the faux stamp and used a 1/8" hole punch to create the postage stamp look. Fun stuff!!

All supplies used on today's challenge card (with the exception of the chipboard and pearl spheres) can be found at Wholly Scrap! You have until midnight on Tuesday, August 2 to complete this challenge and post your project on our Facebook page! And if you have a blog and post your card on line, feel free to leave me a comment with a link back to your page. We'd love to highlight your work on the store blog!!

Enjoy today's challenge and get creating!!
