National Craft Month wrap-up

Hello Everyone!
Well it has been a busy Crafty month! We thank you all for stopping by often and taking part in our many events, sparking great conversations as well as the awesome comments you all left. We shared how to alter bottle caps, dominos, ATC's and Shipping tags as well as step by step instructions for how to construct a paperbag album and some quick and easy kids crafts. From Julie's Inpsiration challenge to Gayles Art Journal Friday, we hope that you were inspired in some way to craft this month (and hopefully talk a friend into it too)

We are currently wrapping up our Spring Bloom challenge, please take the time to vote before Sunday, if you haven't done so already. Peggy, Cori and Diana gave us beautiful things to chose from. Thank you ladies for your lovely entries.

We had a few random winners throughout the month and today we have a few more!

Please send your contact information to Congrats to our winners, we have lots more to share and giveaway every month, so keep commenting to win and please tell a friend.


To end National Craft month, we thought how about a first for us here at the Scrappy Tree...

An ATC Swap!

The Theme: Steampunk

What is Steampunk? SteamPunk is an amazing style. It is very unique and beautiful set in the Victorian age, mixed with explorers and marvelous machines with a splash of modern technology. It really is whatever you can dream up and reminds me a lot of Leonardo Da Vinci. You can google Steampunk and find many samples. Having worked for Disney for many years, this one is my favorite (thanks to Jennie from The Artistic Stamper for taking this picture and sharing it on her lovely blog; )

Details for the swap below, they can also be found on our scrappy community under events/ ATC swap.

Send To:
Kristin Langlais
13671 Palomar Street
Westminster, CA 92683

Deadline: April 30th 2010

Create one ATC in the Steampunk theme and we will swap with other folks at The Scrappy Tree at the end of the month. Please upload and image to the Scrappy Community Here.

For fun, we will vote on a winner that will receive a custom ATC kit, handpicked by The Scrappy Tree team.

Woohoo!!! I'm a winner. Thanks so much! I"ll email my address soon. And I'll definitely think about steammpunk. Stampfrancisco has some very appropriate stamps, I think.
