First and foremost, I need to direct your attention to these three projects that have been added to the gallery in the past few days...

The first is by KathleenTaylor and is using the February Hybrid kit:

The second is by newcomer Neediena:

The third is a STUNNING clock overlay by Meera:

FABULOUS work ladies! Just amazing!

Aren't they great??? Thanks to our Spring Scraplift Challenge we have added 64 new photos to the gallery in the past week alone! If you haven't looked lately, you are definitely missing out - there is some amazing stuff in there!

Secondly, I need to say CONGRATULATIONS to scrappypantz who won the Autumn Leaves stamp set!!! Great job on all the hard work Kami!

Our next contest is for a canister of American Crafts plastic flowers. The competition is fierce though ;) so you'd better get going!

Thirdly, we are getting ready to kick off our Summer Survival Program. What is this you ask??? Well, it is a two month program we will be hosting over the Summer that comes complete with a packed kit of goodies and tons of inspiration and instruction to keep you scrapping all Summer and beyond. New sneaks are posted daily, so be sure to stay tuned!

Scraplift/Spring Cleaning Challenge for April

The challenge is on! We are hosting a Scraplift/Spring Cleaning challenge for April and it is already in full swing!

This weekend's prize is an Autumn Leaves acrylic stamp set - Stamped and Coded. So are you up for the challenge????

Here are the details:

My original idea for a "spring cleaning" challenge was to have you use your stash.

Then I thought a "how many LOs can you do in a month?" challenge sounded fun.

But I'm going to make it even a bit more specific... So here's the challenge: Scrap as much as you can, and make good use of your scraplift-able resources here at Homegrown!


One point for every LO (8x8 or larger) that you complete between now and April 30.

A 2-page LO will count for 2 points.

Your LOs must be uploaded to your member gallery dated today or after to be counted.

Bonus points (2 per LO) for participating in the Challenge of the Week by Jeanne.

AND... if you scraplift another LO in the gallery - member or DT - and credit them for it, you will receive 2 additional points per page.

AND... the person who is scraplifted will be awarded the same bonus points.

So, to recap:

1. Scrap as much as you can beginning today.

2. 1 point per page - 2 page spread is worth 2 points

3. Scraplift and get bonus points for you AND the person you scraplift!

And I guess you'll want prizes...

*We will soon be announcing our Summer Survival Set that you CAN'T live without! All entrants - even if you only upload one LO - will be entered in the drawing (taking place in May)

*There will also be prizes awarded for the following:

Most Scraplifts (for the person who SCRAPLIFTS the most!)

Most Scrapliftable (for the person whose LOs rack up the highest number of scraplifts)

Most Scraplifted (for the LO that is scraplifted the most)

Most Layouts accomplished during the challenge (you're on your honor here as to whether or not they were completed after the challenge began - I don't care when they are STARTED - just when they are COMPLETED)

There will also be smaller prizes and RAKS handed out along the way.

And here's one more shocker: DT can participate too!!!! This one is for EVERYONE! :)

So get scrapping everyone!

This is good preparation to get those juices flowing before NSBD in May!!!!

For more information, check out the forum.

And check back frequently - you never know who may be scraplifting YOU! :)

I'll leave you with this scraplift of Kami (aka Scrappypantz) done by yours truly and using the April Trilogy kit
Happy April Everyone!
