Saying Goodbye to Yvonne...

The time has come to say goodbye to a super talented design team member. Yvonne Yyam has been a part of the Scrapping The Music Team since August of 2009, and in that time has created a ton of beautiful artwork to share with you. We are sad to see her go, but so grateful for the time she has spent sharing her talent and inspiration with us!

Her is a slideshow of just some of her beautiful Scrapping The Music layouts...

You can still visit Yvonne at her blog: Do More With Less

Yvonne - Thank you for being a part of Scrapping The Music! We wish you all the best in your future endeavors! We will miss you!!!

Happy Holidays from the STM Team!!!

Hi everyone! It's hard to believe December is here already, isn't it? It's amazing how fast the time flies!

We won't be having a challenge during this busy month; but we want to let you know that starting in January....

We will be going back to the way it was in the very beginning of STM history -


We are very excited about this, as it gives us - AND YOU - more opportunities to share the experience of using music as inspiration for creating!

We know that alot of you have said that you like having the whole weekend to create your layouts, so the deadline for submissions will be Sunday nights at midnight STM time (see the clock in the sidebar). A new song and challenge will go up every Monday evening. You can look for it around 9:00 pm.

We hope you are as excited about this as we are!

On another note - you can now subscribe by email to this blog, so you will know whenever we update - see the box at the top of the right sidebar.

In the meantime we want to wish you the happiest of holidays -
from all of us at Scrapping The Music!


and Jennifer, Yvonne and Bina too!

See you soon!!!

I'm So Excited to be Back with all of you...

Hi everyone! Michelle Rydell here, and I am soooooooo EXCITED to share with you - that I'm coming back to lead the Scrapping The Music challenge blog again!

I am absolutely GIDDY about it!!! Back in June, I stepped down from the Scrapping the Music team, and I had such mixed emotions about it. You can see my post about it here on my personal blog, and here on the STM blog. I hated to do it, but felt I had to with what was going on in my life at the time.

Well, I sure have missed it. I have missed the inspiration of working with the wonderful women artists on the design team; I've missed the music, and I've missed being inspired by the beautiful artwork we get from all of you!!! STM is a part of my heart, and I'm so glad to be back!

New challenges will start again in January, but in the meantime, look for update posts from us. The design team and I have been brainstorming some changes that we think you will like, and we will keep you updated on our progress. We can't wait to get the new year going!

STM is going to be more fun than ever!!! Yeayyyyyyyy!!!! We hope you will want to join in on the party!!!

Our next update will be this Monday - December 5th. See you then!
