All items available at Flamingo Scraps (limited quantities on hand!). We all started with these supplies and the instructions to make something using all five items. Any other items could be added to complete the project.

Are you ready to see what we made?!

Jolaine's take:
From Flamingo Scraps: Flamingo Five items; Glimmer Mist Sweet Clover and Vintage Pink
Other Supplies: American Crafts Thickers

It was my first time playing with Dear Lizzy papers. They are so playful and girlie! As soon as I saw them I knew what I wanted to do. You see, my five year old daughter loves to come into my scrapbook room and use all my cardstock and tools. I have been meaning to make her an art journal and I think these were the perfect papers for it! I sprayed the lace with Sweet Clover Glimmer Mist and the roses with Vintage Pink. To make the mat for the title, I cut two ovals out of the stripe paper and decorated the border of one of them with a Martha Stewart corner punch. All I added were the alphas to make the title. I simply altered a composition notebook and gave her the scraps to play with along with a glue stick and scissors. She was over the moon!

Tonya's take:
From Flamingo Scraps: Flamingo Five items; Maya Road Hanging Chandelier Trinket Beads

Each year I make Christmas tags that I place on packages for select friends and loved ones.  These tags can also be used as Christmas Tree ornaments.  I always make sure to cover the back to give a clean finish on both sides.  They are very well received, and it is fun to see past ornaments on family trees.   Since it is mid-November, I decided to make Christmas tags with my Flamingo Five supplies.  Although the supplies aren't Christmas themed, I think they still have a nice seasonal look. I was able to create four tags with the supplies. I also added the Maya Road chandelier crystals for added bling.

Amanda's take:

From Flamingo Scraps: Flamingo Five items; Cotton Candy Stickles
Other Supplies: Stampin' Up Heart punch; Studio Calico polaroid stamp; Basic Grey chipboard "a"; Pink Catseye Inkpad; Micron pen

When my sister, Katie, had my adorable nephew Creighton he was five weeks early.  My sister was carrying around a stack of photos in her purse as she went back and forth to the NICU for 10 days so I made her a cute little photo album to hold the photos.  A few weeks ago, she asked me if I was going to make her another little photo album to put Abigail's first photos.  Of course I am!  And these papers were perfect for it. :)  So I covered the album and made a cute first page to add a photo to when Abby makes her arrival in the next few weeks!

Suzanne's take:
From Flamingo Scraps: Flamingo Five items; Maya Road mega super bottle cap; Tim Holtz distress ink in frayed burlap
Other supplies: Spellbinders die; Tim Holtz rosette die;

Last, but certainly not least, are Suzanne's ornaments!  Looks like Tonya and Suzanne were on a similar wavelength this month!  She made two fabulous ornaments with this month's Flamingo Five items.

So here we are at the end of our third Flamingo Five and we hope you enjoyed it!
