Take a Walk on the Wild Side!

Are you ready to walk on the wild side? Well, that is exactly the theme of our August Flavor of the Month card kit. Wild and Free with an exclusive stamp set by Pink and Main. We are so extremely happy about this kit. Come on and hop along and see what the amazing Design Team has provided this month as inspiration. 

This amazing August kit has SOLD OUT! Prior to the blog hop!...WOW! If you missed out you will want to jump on the subscription wagon so you do not miss out on September's amazing kit. Check out this page for all the details about the kits. They just keep getting better and better! Thanks for hopping along with us today. Don't forget to enter the Rafflecopter for a chance to win a complete kit! 

Now onto our lineup:
If you've been hopping with us in the past few months, you know that I have made it my personal goal to work this kit until it is gone and see how many cards I can squeeze out of it.  The first month or two I made all 4 sketches from all 4 collections, getting 16 cards.  Then I started going further, taking all 4 sketches from all 4 collections and then continuing to use up the rest and push the number higher.  One month it was 28, another was 30, last month was 32.  This month I really pushed myself and you will not believe how many I managed to make from this one kit.  Now keep in mind as a Design Team member we get the Banana Split level, the whole shebang.  But we are assigned different levels to focus on for the Blog Hop.  The remainder we do for additional blog posts on the SFL Blog the rest of the month.
Ok, so enough suspense.

Do you want to know how many I got?


You're NOT going to BELIEVE how many!!!

YES, I got 43 cards from this month's Banana Split level.
Isn't that just crazy?!?!?!?  I literally had nothing but scraps no bigger than my pinkie finger left over.
That means for the price of the Banana Split level I made 43 cards for LESS THAN $1 per card!!!
There's no way you cannot agree that the value isn't there.  It's unmistakable!!

Here is an awesome unboxing video of August's Flavor of the Month Card Kit. 

Ok, so enough with my hooting and hollering, jumping up and down with excitement, I will now show you my 16 cards using the 4 collections and all 4 sketches using the free download sketch sheets you can find here.  I will have 2 blog posts next week on the SFL Blog showcasing all 43 cards, so be on the look out for those.

Concord and 9th Is Joining Scrapping for Less

Thanks for joining us today! The wonderful company of Concord and 9th is joining the Scrapping for Less family this month. Concord and 9th is a relatively new company on the horizon (or at least new to us!) We couldn’t be happier to offer their fabulous stamps and dies for you. Join in and hop along and see the fabulous projects the Design Team has created for you today. You can view the Concord and 9th items HERE and be sure to check out the blog post from Tuesday with some insight to the Concord and 9th family and company.

Now onto our line up:
Stacy (that's me!)

For my card I chose to use two stamp sets, the Give Thanks and the Tree Ring Background.   I used my Gina Marie Stitched Rectangle dies to cut out my black card panel. I took the Tree Ring Background stamp and stamped it in the lower right hand corner with Versamark ink. I then heat embossed it with Ranger Detail Clear embossing powder.  Next I took the Give Thanks stamp set and heat embossed three of the leaf sprigs, two in Ranger Detail Silver and one in Ranger Black Sparkle embossing powders. I also heat 
embossed the Thanks sentiment with Ranger Super Fine Detail White embossing powder. Next I fussy cut out the three sprigs and the Thanks sentiment.  I made a "messy nest" with some silver metallic thread and adhered the sprigs and sentiment with foam tape on top of the thread to hold it in place. To finish it off I mounted the black panel to a top fold portrait white card base.  

 I think it turned out super nice. 

Here's a close up of the cluster:
