We’re looking for pages that show your little guy getting into trouble, causing a little mischief, or just being a little stinker. Funny and full of personality journaling will get extra special consideration.
All Things Faux: Why use the real thing when you can have a grand time creating your own embellishments and backgrounds? Whether mimicking a traditional scrapbooking products or starting from scratch with your own imaginative ideas, we’re in search of faux technique laden pages.
Cardboard Base: Flat, corrugated, ripped up or distressed heavily, it’s all good. The only requirement of this call is that the base/background must be cardboard and not cardstock or patterned paper.
Color Scheme: This month's color scheme is pink, chocolatey and full of fun. How will you use it? We want to see, we want to see!
Easter: It’s that time again when spring heralds in this lovely holiday chock full of egg bearing bunnies and baskets brimming with chocolate delights as well as everlasting religious traditions.
Scrap Your Stash – Rub-ons: Each month, we’ll dig into our collective stashes for a popular or oft used product. Please only submit layouts that feature rub-ons. We would also love to hear how you used them, so write up a little blurb about how you changed them up and include it in the supply list.
Using Scallops on Your Pages: Scallops are trendy and really give our pages a shot of whimsy. It doesn’t matter how you get there – a border punch, a die-cut, hand cut from cardstock or patterned paper, or another unique way, we want to see layouts heralding this popular shape.
White Space: Many scrapbookers say they have a hard time achieving just the right balance of white space, so show off your talents at how you rock it out.

Get Well Soon/Feel Better/Smile: Anyone under the weather would appreciate a pick-me-up which is why we’re interested in cards that send a smile and wishes for better health.
Music: We’re running the gamut on this one, and cards can have any of the following: sheet music, musical instruments, people singing or playing music, song lyrics, or anything else music connected.
Silly Sentiments: Giving a giggle is a great way to share some humor and fun. For this call, we’re looking for sentiments that are silly and sure to tickle their funny bones. For example, “I love ewe” featuring an adorable sheep or “I chairish you” featuring a chair.
Shaped – Flowers: Your submitted card can either be in the shape of a flower or feature flower shapes, but this is not a call for flowers. Anything other than a flower shape will not be accepted.
Dresses and/or Dress Forms: Both are hot and trendy right now, and we’re interested in seeing cards that put these stamps to good use. Projects that are technique driven will gain extra consideration.

Text: There are so many ways to add text to our projects and we’re looking for special and innovative cards or other projects that put text to the test.
