I made a little picture holder by adhering the square chipboard piece on both sides and the bottom only. Now when I go to use this card in my pocket scrapbook, I just have to slide a photo in the top. The red washi tape and leaf sticker are from October Afternoon, the woodgraind washi is from Glitz, the square chipboard piece is from Crate Paper, and the cardstock, button and twine is from Papertrey Ink. I cut the 3x4 card with my new We R Memory Keepers 3x4 rounded corner craft punch.

It is anniversary time over at Papertrey Ink, and so there are all kinds of fun contests going on throughout this week. As part of the festivities, PTI just announced their own line of "pocket style scrapbooking" stamps dies, pocket pages and binders! Today's challenge is to create a 3x4 card that could be used in pocket scrapbooking or on the front of a card.

The time has come for our final Pinspired challenge! For this challenge we are working with this pin featuring iced snowflake cookies!
The sponsor for this challenge is Fresh Squeezed Stamps. The winner of this challenge will receive a stamp set of their chose from Fresh Squeezed Stamps!
Since the pin we are working with features cookies, I decided to repurpose a few of my stamps to make a tray of cookies. The tray is actually supposed to be a frame and the cookies are, of course, made out of snowflakes! If you are interested in playing along, head on over to the Pinspired blog!

Pinspired Challenge #23 begins today, but before we get into the details, we at Pinspired have an announcement to make. We as a team have decided after much thought and consideration to close down the Pinspired challenge site at the end of the year. Our last challenge will be posted on Dec. 24, 2013. We have enjoyed this opportunity and want to thank everyone who has participated. We would also like to thank all of our sponsors for their generosity and support!
Now, for our next last challenge, we have this lovely teal and red pin to work with:
Our sponsor for this challenge is Some Odd Girl. The prize for this challenge will be three free digital stamps from Some Odd Girl's online store.
We would love to have you play along with us!

It's time for another Pinspired Challenge! Check out the fun pin we are working with this week:
The sponsor for this challenge is Xyron!
They are offering the winner of this challenge a 2.5 create-a-sticker maker! I have two sizes of Xyron's sticker makers and they are awesome!
Now for my card, I wanted to go with a hand written quote, but mine didn't turn out so well. It's imperfect, uneven and half the words go uphill! However, when I printed the quote out and went to change my card, both my kids told me to leave like it was. So I did and now I'm okay with the imperfection. It just means I need to practice some more!
I hope you will join us for this challenge! Head on over to the Pinspired blog and link up!

Pinspired Challenge #21 begins today and here is the pin we are working with:
I made a gift tag using Papertrey Ink's Cupcake Collection. This tag is large enough that it could be used as a gift tag and a small card in one! I think this tag would go perfectly with a sweet cupcake treat for someone's birthday.
The prize for this challenge is being offered by our DT member Lalo Ik! The winner will receive a prize package (pictured below) that includes a Christmas stamp set, twine and snowflake ribbon by May Arts Ribbon and 3 Versamagic dew drop inks!

It is time for another Pinspired Challenge and this time we are working with a Halloween/Fall theme!
Our sponsor for this challenge is Snake Tape from Scrapp'n Supplies! They are offering the winner of this challenge a tape bundle!
I love to craft and decorate for Halloween, so I have a lot of (old and new) Halloween themed supplies! Most of the supplies (Heidi Grace, Stampin' Up and My Mind's Eye) I used for this card have probably been discontinued since they are from previous seasons, but I still love them.
Be sure to stop by the Pinspired Challenge blog to link up and while you're there, check out what the rest of the design team made!
