Mmmmm...happiness! In fact, total BLISS!

There's nothing like that kiss in the moonlight. Nothing that can give you tingles up your spine like being with that special someone.

Well, nothing like it except opening the box at the front door with those new scrapping supplies you just ordered. Or, finally finding the perfect paper trimmer that gives you a straight cut every time. Now, THAT is Bliss! In fact, that would be a Scrapper's Bliss!

So, for today's Birthday Bash celebration, we're whipping out the tools! Today's mission, should you choose to accept, is to "build" your card or page or altered project. And, you have to use at least 3 tools! Think about all of them we use...so just pick 3 (and no, your paper trimmer doesn't count as one of them!!! lol) How about the eyelet setter, a sewing machine, embossing gun, melting pot, your Crop-o-dile...so many tools to choose from! You have until midnight PST to post your layout/card/altered project!! There's no special theme...just the use of tools!! Though, if you need inspiration...how about a page about your most romantic get-away spot...and why!

Make sure you register at Scrapper's Bliss really early!! Remember, it may take awhile to activate your account, so please be patient!! Label your gallery entry as "Pub Calls Party". We will start a thread in the Scrapper's Bliss Forum, so make sure you link your project there! By the way, you can do a layout, card or altered item! No digi...since you have to use tools (oh yea...PC doesn't count, either! lol), but it could be a hybrid layout!

What are you playing for? Oh, let's see. Scrapper's Bliss will do three $25.00 prize packages. Oh, did I mention that one winner will receive a $200 prize package? That's right...TWO BEN FRANKLINS worth of yummy, inspiring and well...blissful scrapping stuff! Thank you Scrapper's Bliss!!!

Can't wait to meet up with you all on your home turf! :) If you have any questions, either let us know here, or post on THE thread in their forum.

Also, sorry for the delays in the recent winners! Too many goodies...serious great layouts and cards and projects!!! We should have 3 days worth ready to post by tonight! :)

Now, get your tools and have fun!!!!

You might want to note that you have to register for both the gallery and the forums. Your link is to the forums, but you also need to go to gallery and register if you want to upload your project. Don't want anyone disappointed at the last minute.

Don't know if I missed this, but how are the winners for each layout/card type contest chosen?
thanks.

Wendy Reed said...

Come on scrappers... let's see those cards!!!

Pub Calls said...

As far as the voting, since there is moi (the Pub Calls Person) and my 5 Pub Calls People, we've been voting on layouts based on creativity, design, color and fitting the theme. So far, we've given point values, added them up, with the highest points winning! In the case of the Cropper's Cottage, we have just posted a poll for voting! That will count as a set of points, too! :) Hope that answers your questions!

Ok, I have an entry, I also have a password and I have confirmation at Scrapper's Bliss that I can join the gallery. I have registered in the forum .... but ... I have a problem. I can't log in and I don't know why. I have deleted cookies like it says to do and I have emailed scrapper's bliss for some help/advice. What can I do ? Can I post anywhere else and link to this ? I'd love to play.

Thanks, Leanne

Jen said...

Another fun one! Used up some of an older kit on this.
