Prompt #26, lets see what you got!

We are back once again with another challenge for you!! But before we get to that, lets see who won the last challenge, shall we?

Well the winner of the Type inspired embellishment prompt was..............................................

MandySea!!!! Congrats MandySea, be sure to email me at so we can get that prize over to you.

Our next prompt involves taking inspiration from
comic books!! All of those big bold words in conversation bubbles, pretty fun stuff to play around with on a layout. Our guest designer is the wonderful Angie Backen!!! I am quite partial to Angie, I was able to meet her last June at Sisiversary, she happened to be my roomie. Other then that, Angie is pretty good at creating some fun and beautiful layouts!! It was about time that we had her guest design.

"Hi! My name is Angie Backen. I am a 37 yo mama of 2 girls and a wife of one incredibly hard working and devastatingly handsome computer guru (nerd?). We share our suburban home in Phoenix, AZ with 2 dogs, a Yorkie named "Waffles" and a German Shepherd named "Pancakes". (I’m thinking we must have been hungry when we named them.) I've been crafty for as long as I can remember. I started scrapbooking in the 90's, when all we had to choose from were a few stickers, frames, and LOTS of mat packs. I eventually gave up on it (proven by my firstborn's unfinished baby album), but continued on with various hobbies. I only started scrapping again a couple of years ago and WOW... this industry has come a long way, and I'm very excited to be a part of it. I'm also thrilled to be a GD for The Creative Type this month. These girls rule! Thank you!"

Angie really captured the comic book style and I think its just awesome.

Thank you Angie!!! I think you have inspired us all for this one.

We happen to have a very nice prize for this one, and it is sponsored by one of the Typists, Dani. Thank you Dani for this generous prize.

This great necklace is made by Savage Salvage on Etsy. Be sure to stop on over at their shop and see what other fun things they have, and thank you once again Dani!

Now lets see how some of the Typists used some comic book style in their projects.








Be sure to upload your layouts to the comment section of this post by Sunday, February 28th, 2pm eastern time!!

Prompt #25, Incorporating type in your embellisments.

Well you all rocked it with the neutral challenge, and it was not an easy one to do. I myself enjoyed doing the neutral prompt, because I find that sometimes I go a bit crazy with color. Its like a cleansing of the palette. I think in the future I will look back on this idea a lot more and use it in my layouts and mini book pages more often!

With that said, we have a winner from prompt #
24, we loved them all, but we could only choose one.

Lauren, we loved this card!!! We have never had a winner who had done a card before, so this was new for us and it came out wonderful using our neutral rule! Please email me at: so that I can pass your address along to our sponsor and you can receive that fabulous color kit from Gauche Alchemy.

Now I have a tid bit of bad news. With CHA just passing, and a lot of our fellow scrappers running around at CHA, we do not have a guest designer this round. We also have a few of our typist M.I.A but they will be back next round. Please forgive us!!

Now on to prompt #25, using type on your embellishmen
ts. Whichever way you decide to do, whether you make a piece of a magazine into a flower, or you write all over a tag. Type on your embellishments is the mission!

One lucky winner will receive a $15 dollar gift certificate
to 7 Kids College fund. They offer tons of supplies, paper, stamps, tools for all of you scrapping needs. We also have a guest designing spot up for grabs as well with this prize!! So get to creating.

Now onto the the Creative Type team's creations.









Ok, be sure to link up by Sunday, February 14th 2pm for your chance to win!!
