Dare #48

Hi all, Jo here. Wow dare #48, these dares sure are ticking along! It will be at 50 before we know it, but shhhh...I have been sworn to secrecy over that one. Something I can tell you though is that this week we have a phenomenal prize for you thanks to the generosity of our sponsors You will win product with a value of over $129! How cool is that? Here is a pic of the prize and a list of what you win if you enter the dare this time...

Wonderful Favourites Stamp Set
3 x Ink Pads
Jumbo Bodacious Wheel Stamp
Jumbo Handle
Current Catalogue.08/09
**edited to add - an ink cart for the wheel is also part of the prize. Making the total $ value over $140! WOWEE!!**

So what do you have to do to win this awesome prize? Well it is not too tough really, but I thought in honour of Stampin' Up!'s support we should do some stamping, so here is your dare. Your layout background paper, and one other element (journaling, title, embellishment etc.), must be stamped. Not too tricky is it? So no excuse not to join in and remember, you have to be in to win.

Post a link to your layout in the comments when you're done or send it via email to Lianne at by Wednesday 2nd July.

Here is an absolutely gorgeous layout from our guest designer Kate Anderson. I love how she has stamped the background behind the photo and her embellishments, and I also love the journalling...just perfect!

And here is mine:

I used a "summer" text stamp around the edge of my background as a border, stamped the flourishes and then used kindyglitz to highlight them and stamped the text "happy happy joy joy" and the date on the layout.


I used a date stamp on the background and a barcode stamp on one of the photos. And I used a stamp type font for the title.Lianne - I've stamped the background with an Autumn leaves stamp and different coloured ink pads and the little hearts beside the words LOVE.

I have used some stampin' UP background stamps for my background, added a stamped journaling block and some stamped flourishes and flower (stamped onto vellum and cut out). I love to stamp onto cardstock, vellum and acetate and cut them out. I often stamp extra and keep in a little container on my desk - handy for that finishing touch of any layout I am working on!

Trina's LO

I've used a scroll stamp on the base (which isn't very visible now), plus a stamp where my journaling is and a Stampin' Up! word stamp as part of my journaling.


I used a Label Tulip stamp on the base + a Autumn Leaves stamp on the circle diecut.

Dare 47

Welcome to dare 47!
Vicky here :) Lately I've been thinking alot about my life Right Now....all the little bits that make up my i was cooking dinner afew weeks ago I realised that i was in a moment that i never wanted to forget so I ran and grabbed my camera, set the timer, put the camera on the second shelf in the fridge (perfect height ;D) and went back to doing exactly what i was doing before, grumpy Arlo on hip, stiring dinner, Kaya hanging out in the cupboard
which leads me to your challenge;
Your dare, should you choose to accept it is to scrap a photo or photos from your everyday life.
It could be your family eating dinner together, you and your dog watching the news...just something you do pretty much every day...the catch is You and one other person (or pet) must be in the photo... Timers are really useful, as are neighbours/husbands/children....
We have an AMAZING prize for you this dare, the very lovely Tricia at Cocoa Daisy is going to give the winner a gift certificate to the value of a Cocoa Daisy Kit! Isnt that a fantastic prize, her kits are so so fun and her customer service is outstanding! Thank you so much Tricia :)
* the winner will be responsible for postage, last time i got a Cocoa Daisy kit it was around $20nzd, totally worth it!!!!

So, heres my page
and a fantastic page by our guest designer Denise who was kind enough to enlighten us :

' librocubicularist is someone who lies in bed and reads'
and Sharons page, completely priceless!


as always we cant wait to see what you come up with
