Check out the How to Play page for a few guidelines to play along. We want this to be FUN so we’ll keep the rules to just a few!

First up today, we have a Guest Designer whose projects constantly wow us! Please say hello to Denise Strilchuk! You may know her as Dee Strilly on Instagram! For her challenge inspiration, she thought of a favorite place to be!

Dee pictured herself under a cherry tree, reading a good book with a cold beverage! This totally looks like a perfect “happy place”! She made the cherry tree with Leafy Tree Backdrop: Portrait and tiny flowers from Spring Sprig! She stenciled the pretty clouds with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink.

She combined images from Screen Time, Den Sweet Den, Crazy Antics and Year Two to create the scene. The perfect sentiment for this design is from On the Beach! Reading a book under a tree on beautiful day sounds very relaxing to me!

Now let’s see how our amazing Design Team was inspired by the new theme!

For this beautiful tropical destination scene, Franci used patterned papers to cut out the images from Palm Trees, including the cute little crab! She popped up this mini scene with foam tape then finished the card by stamping the sentiment from Mermaid for You in Kiddie Pool ink.

Karin is dreaming of a trip to Aruba! She depicted this Caribbean paradise with Tropical Backdrop and Flamingo Together! She spelled out the location with Oliver’s Stitched ABCs, then added a border of pineapples from Simply Celebrate Summer!

Caly‘s slimline design is perfect to show that “life is a picnic” in this happy park scene! She used images from Bicycle Built for You, Crazy Antics, Screen Time and Happy Village! The tall tree is found in Let’s Play!

Samantha‘s favorite place is the beach so she created this gorgeous “beach at night” scene! She combined Stitched Wave Borders and Stitched Hillside Borders to make the sand and waves layers. She created a beautiful star-filled sky with the Starry Sky stencil and embossing paste. She filled the scene with images from Upon a Star, Life is Good and All the Clouds (moon). For the sentiment, she combined Upon a Star and Super Star!

Joyce was inspired by the Arctic to create this fun tall slimline card! She added pops of color to this snowy scene using Smooth Sailing (lighthouse and sailboat). The arctic critters are from Sealed with a Kiss, Mermaid for You and Beary Happy Holidays. The Stitched Wave Borders provide a place to tuck some of the critters into the waves!

Camping under the stars is Samantha‘s favorite place! She combined some fun sets to create a happy campsite scene! The Den Sweet Den bears are enjoying the campfire from Love you S’more; one is napping on the Toadally Awesome log. Samantha used a sailboat from Smooth Sailing as a stand-in for a tent, that is so clever! She used the Starry Skies die to scatter glittery stars in the sky!

Christy‘s fabulous beach destination features a brand new set, Scootin’ By! To build the scene, she started with Sunburst Backdrop, then she layered Stitched Simple Wavy Borders for the waves and sand. She added trees from Life is Good and a sentiment from On the Beach stamped on the bright orange sun!

Jessica‘s awesome beach house is a destination I’m sure many of us are dreaming of visiting! She used the Scalloped Treat Box Beach House Add-On that comes complete with seagull! She built the scene with Stitched Wave Borders and Simple Stitched Hillside Borders. The tall grass in the background is our Cattail Borders with the tops trimmed! The birthday sentiment is found the Seahorsin’ Around mini set!

We will share Design Team inspiration for you over the next 3 weeks and we’ll announce our Featured Fawnatics and random winner for Challenge 100 – Cards for Kids tomorrow!

We can’t wait to see your creative Create a Scene projects! This challenge will be open until Sunday, May 2 at 11:59PM ET. Have fun!

Our wonderful Guest Designer, Ashley joins us today to share some amazing Create a Scene inspiration!

Ashley’s festive underwater birthday party scene features Ocean Shell-fie and Birthday Before ‘n Afters! She built her fantastic scene on a Large Slimline with Sliders panel that she stenciled with the Bubbles Stencil!

How cute are those critters blowing bubbles from Bubbles of Joy! The little octopus also has a noisemaker from Party Animal! It’s all in the details!

Ashley stamped the “happy” from Yeti or Not on a Pearlescent Vellum Simple Wavy Banner for an extra touch of shimmer and shine!

Inspired by Grease with Guest Designer Su-Queen

We are starting week 3 of the Inspired by a Book, Movie or Song challenge and we are so wowed by all the amazing entries in the gallery! This challenge is clearly everyone’s favorite! You have one more week to challenge yourself to recreate your favorite book, movie, song or show. This challenge closes on Sunday, April 4th at 11:59PM ET.

Now we have more awesome inspiration by our Guest Designer Su-Queen Teo! I hope you have been checking out all the inspired by projects she has been adding to the gallery. Be sure to check them out at thepapercrownnyc on Instagram! For this Grease-inspired card she used Car Critters and Tiny Friends!

Let’s let Su-Queen tell us about her Grease-inspired design:
I was inspired by the Thunder Road Race scene from the movie Grease. The background panel is inked using Broken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink. The road is cut out from the Palm Tree Border die and inked with Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide ink. I cut out two pieces from the Tropical Backdrop die and cut off all the palm trees. Both were inked with Black Soot and Weathered Wood, one panel lighter than the other. The lighter gray panel is offset from the top. The darker gray panel has foam dots for dimension.

One car has flames from Little Dragon, for the other car I hand drew lightning with a silver pen. I added acetate for the window, added two people from Tiny Friends and used foam squares to pop them up. Cha-Cha also is popped up with foam squares and is holding a scarf (used the smaller seaweed from Fintastic Friends). The sentiment is stamped with Jet Black ink on Sunflower cardstock from the Simple Wavy Banner die.

Thank you so much for sharing all of your incredibly creative projects for this challenge, Su-Queen! We are so happy you joined us for this challenge!
