This is the place to chat about the 7 Deadly Sins Can’t wait for this to start. it’s going to be great !!
Hi just wondering if the challenges are really about sins or thats just your way of advertising, i scrap my kids and am not sure if the theme will fit
Without giving too much away, we have incorporated the themes so that you can scrap your children
OK, here’s our list of “deadly sinners” so far
Jules (Bling princess)

Hello everyone!!! Im new here and Im looking forward to the 7 deadly sins challenge
It sounds like it is going to be fun. I know my kids are often quite naughty so I’m sure I can scrap some of their ’stuff’. I know I like to capture both their good sides and their not so good sides in my scrapping.
Cool, this will be great fun!
I’m feeling a bit scared, this is the first time I’ve ever been in a challenge!!! Can’t wait to hear the details for the cards – that’s my ‘thing’.
i love the card side of it all too.. cant wait to see those challenges.. im sure the CARD dt have some awesome things in store for us..

Updated list of sinners
Jules (Bling princess)

“It’s all about me and my love for self, nothing but glamour all the way
Think you know??
As we have so many people joining in, we’re going to give away a few prizes
Send us a link to your blog, with our new Sins Blinkie and you’ll go into the randow draw to win an Urban Lily Stamp Set
We’re also have a random number prize for comments – raks to be given away. so keep chatting
The Stamp Set will be given away this Sunday, March 26th
OOOhhh, hint, yay…
Think I have an idea, maybe, but if you look at the hint really hard, it’s kind of the basis for most of the sins, in fact if it’s the sin I think it might be, it’s what they reckon is the foremost and worst of all sins….
I have got the blinkie to work on my blog – is this where you want the link? Check me out anyway!!!!! If you want me to send the link somewhere else you had better tell me where…….
Leave your link here, thats fine
Hi there! I am new here too and like Christine I have made a resolution to join in more challenges and scrap more! I have loaded the blinkie on my blog and now I can’t wait to get started!
Ok this is the third time that I have tried leaving the link to my blog showing the blinkie. Lets hope it is third time lucky. If you click on my name it should take you directly to my blog
love giveways.. heres my link for my blog:
Finally managed to add the blinkie to my blog. Here’s the link
Still waiting for email for link code, hello…. feeling forgotten….
OHHHHH – I’m LOVED again… thank you so much…. it is up on my blog and working…. woo hoo
i cant seem to post my message
ok it wont allow me to paste my link to show my blinkie. Just click my name to be forwarded to my blog
Above list has been updated. The list keeps on getting bigger!!
Who’s ready for a new hint ??
Just realised there’s a chat section and I have been leaving my name in all the wrong places ( is THAT a sin? )I have so many more than 7 sins to confess, so please add me to the list and send me the thingo for the blinkie. Thanks, can’t wait to start this one, have never finished a challenge before. If I don’t finish this one it will not be for lack of material!! LOL
Finally gotten around to popping in here.
Hi all. So looking forward to seeing just what we will be doing. Of to put the blinkie on my blog.
Just click on my name for a link to my blog. The blinkie is going strong, Thanks Marnie.
My hand goes up… another hint please!!!
Hi everyone i’m new here,i just signed up and added the blinkie to my blog.
I have never done challenges like this before,am a bit scared but really looking forward to it.
Looking forward to seeing your sins
I have a question
How do i add my blog link to my name?
Another hint will be coming sometime over the weekend
Hi there JulieM
Sure is going to be fun with 3 Julie’s joining in so far. lol
To add the blog link to your post, when you post a comment you will see 3 boxes above the message box. 1 for your name,1 for your email and the 3rd is for your blog addie. HTH
I added my blog addie,hope it works.
Loving all the blogs girls !!
I feel a little out of it… I don’t have a blog, don’t think I could manage one anyway… Is that going to be a problem??
Tammy March 27th, 2009 3:42 pm
Tammy, I am pretty sure the blog is just an added thing, the layouts you do for the comp can be uploaded into the gallery, so a blog shouldnt be needed for the competition.
hi all well i finally manaaged to get a chance to chat in here and i am very excited about doing the 7 deadly sins challenge. i hope i have my blog link right. i am techno challenged a bit like kelly pmsl.
i really love visitors on my blog so feel free to drop in.
Decided to bite the bullet and play along with this challenge. I haven’t entered anything like this in a few years so looking forward to the challenges.
This isn’t letting me post my blog address…it should be linked to my name tho!
I would love to see another clue!
“Are you that transparent you are characterised by an insatiable desire?”
I’ve updated the list. Please let me know if your name isn’t on there. I’ll have it updated ASAP
And, no you don’t need a blog to participate in the challenges Just need to load your work to our gallery each week.
My name isn’t on the list yet/still.
On there now Kelly
ooooooooooohhhhhhhhh any ideas on the second clue ladies. this is getting interesting
Not yet have to make you think a little about this one
dont make me think too hard it hurts pmsl.
I so wanted to enter this, but unfortunately circumstances aren’t the best atm….
Good luck everyone.
Question…. Is the first and second clues for the 1st challenge or for the first and second… Or is that asking too much, hehe!!
Has anyone figured out the clues yet?
I’m so hopeless with clues……
I haven’t received an email with the blinkie code in it yet.
well I am in the dark here’s hoping it will all fall into place. I am hopeless with clue too!
okay, I have been pondering this last clue.. I am more than likley wrong, but I think its greed. :S
wow greed hey i didnt think of that. i thought pride for the first clue and vanity maybe for the second. oh i dont know. this is sooooooo cryptic pmsl.
If you’re all nice to Tam, she might give you another clue later this week
Nice to see it has everyone thinking !!
Ooohhh, we almost forgot to give the Stamp Set away.
Winner will be announced on the blog tomorrow 1/4/09
Thanks for adding me to the list.it sure is growing bigger and bigger by the day. can’t wait to start.
It could be a mixture of greed and pride ?
Tam oh honey you know I luvs ya…we would love another big hint hehe
Just signed up cant wait to start!
Off to add blinkie!
have fun with the clues girls hehehe, can’t wait for this to start and see what everyone does
Cant wait to start this!!!
I’ve sent an email to register and I have put the blinkie in my blog: http://casscrappin.blogspot.com/.
Looking forward to the challenges…
With the clues, I would say the first one is vanity and the second is greed But that’s just my two cents worth
oh come on is there going to be another clue. the suspense is killing me pmsl.
I’d give a hint away but we are playing ‘wickedly’ so hehehehe your going to have to wait.
I can tell you though that the challenges are fun fun fun.
ohhh that’s not fair Nicole you are being ‘Naughty’…I can’t wait for the challenges to start.
Not long now, less than 2 weeks!! Trying to get myself all prepared (well, as prepared as you can be without actually knowing what you’re preparing for!!!) I’m a just a little giddy over it all…
oh that is sooooooooo wicked lol. no one is giving any clues away and it is doing my head in lol. cant wait, i am counting down now woo hoo.
maybe we should have a naughty corner for you Nicole. lol
Nicole, it’s clue time. I am sure it is! Perhaps you are the biggest sinner in here? Is there a suspense sin? If so, you need to SB that one. EVIL SUSPENSE- that’s what it is.LOL
I left a comment here last week (now it’s gone) and I sent an email to register but my name is not on the list
I would love to enter this challenge… please can you confirm that I’m registered
Oh I did put the blinkie on my blog but not sure if I ever sent the link to my blog! Here it is anyway…
“It’s manifested in the individual who spurns love and opts instead for fury”
Happy guessing girls! I’ll get Karen to post another clue next week hehe…Then it’s go time!!
got the blinkie, sent the e-mail, just waiting for it to all get started now. Looks exciting and I have no idea what the clues really mean.
How criptic hint!!!
I cant wait for this to start!!
hehehehe I can be as naughty as I want,
nanananananaannaaaaaa I know what’s coming and you all don’t
Lets say IT’S AWESOME
Hi! I tried to sign up the other day but I dont see my name on the list so I guess it didnt work. I tried to put the blinkie on my blog but I cant get it to work either. I’m not so good with computers so I dont really know what I’m doing, but I’m really looking forward to this challenge. It looks AWESOME!
I can’t wait to be in the know too.
Is is WRATH? Huh? Is it? I know I have felt wrath plenty of times, and yep, I have spurned love and opted for anger AND cut all the sleeves out of his suits!! Mwahhhhh ( evil laugh ) those were the days. mwaaahhhhh
I was thinking Wrath too Kelly. Who else thinks it’s wrath?
actually i was thinking gee i so dont want to get on kellys bad side pmsl.
Thankyou Marnie for that kind comment. NOW I am pure as the driven snow, with my anger well and truly in check. EXCEPT when I go to Centrelink and the young, zitty kid behind the counter asks me if I am JUST a housewife and mother. I smile sweetly, (with steam pouring out my ears and) inform his no idea ass that I am a Domestic Engineer and worth far more than I am paid. They NEVER know what to say to that!!! LOL
Told you I had heaps of sins to confess!!
Happy Easter everyone. Stay safe on the roads
domestic engineer! I will have to remember that one! lol
omg kel i would have loved to be a fly on the centrelink wall when you did that one pmsl. i hope everyone had a great easter and ate way too much chocolate.
I didn’t receive the blinkie email, but being on a Mac I “got” the blinkie.
Here is the link:
Looking forward to starting.
And Kelly, my Dad’s been a “domestic engineer” ever since he was retrenched about 20 years ago ! It’s a great phrase, but probably still doesn’t do us full justice !
1 more sleep!!!!
Wow – what do you all think about the first challenge????
My fav colour is purple!
Love the first prompt!
Glad you like it
I reckon it’s really hard…I don’t have much if any purple in my stash and no LSS! The thinking cap will be working overtime here this week! Although I do have an idea and hopefully will come up with something that is suitable!
I am with you Leah, I dont have much purple either and no LSS, so totally dont know what I am doing there!! lol I dont use purple much at all.
But I love the prompt.
Make purple girls
Paints, chalks, crayon, the opportunities are endless!
I’m a going to be struggling I think. I don’t do purple. No laughing there missy Christine. lol
Hopefully I can put something togther.
I know Julie – purple – I can do it – I know I can – LOL
drat, was hoping to use another colour, but serves me right for thinking too far ahead… What to do, what to do…
yeah, this is a good challenge. I am not all the fond of purple myself and I’m incredibly not vain. I took some pictures of myself last night though so I have something to work with.
gee, I had more purple than I thought! Hope its okay that the pp had white on it??
Have to go to airport today – so popping into local scrap shop, found 2 scraps with a bit of purple on them but lacking in the bling department. The funny thing is I’ve done 2 LO’s friday night about ME – vanity is now my middle name.
Fantastic to see the entries coming in girls!
you girls are rocking the gallery so far!!
There some speed scrappers out there thanks for the inspiration girls
done the card – planning on doing LO on Wednesday scrap night.
hoping to get this done soon. love the pages that are up already… awesome challenge..”
This has done my head in a little…but in the end it all came together YAY! Will take photos tomorrow when I have some daylight and will upload then
My offering is in. Hope I don’t need any more photos of me as I have just exhausted my supply.LOL
I think I have stuffed up the uploading bit, we’ll see. Can’t see the LO so far. Does it take time to be approved in case of ‘adult’ content ?
Great LO’s girls, there’s extreme talent in here. Feeling VERY inadequate!!! LOL
Kelly, what’s your user name in the gallery as I can’t seem to find you to re-activate the account. LO should appear instantly when you load, so let me know your user name and I’ll sort it out for you.
kelly, I had to take new pictures of myself. Luckily the laundry room wall is purple! But, I am finding that purple does not photograph all that well. It’s odd, really.
Karen, I think my user name is kchambo
well i have conquered the purple lurgy lol. and kelly i too have scraped the barrel to get pics of me. lol. i am having trouble even logging into the gallery. maybe i used a different password lol. i forget everything.
Yah – finished LO, did a card the other day but then used scraps from LO to do 2 more cards (1 that I love but doesn’t have the words “celebrate you” on it so can’t use that one but will upload it for you to sticky beak at).
How’s everyone going with this challenge?? The gallery is looking fabulous !!!
Only have until tomorrow night to get your entries in, and then the next challenge will be posted
Who’s ready for it??
I have just finished my LO and card, that was hard work…still not a fan of purple, but quiet happy with how it all turned out.
I will photograph and post it all tomorrow!
Can’t wait for the next challange
Well mine is in now too and I am happy with how it turned out in the end. Although I ended up going to 3 lss to get me some purple paper to work with as I had none what so ever.
Gallery is looking great girls.
Just uploaded mine and had a sticky at everyone’s LO’s and cards – some really great entries.
my god ladies the work in the gallery is unreal. so many talented ladies. i apologise to those who i havent gotten to comment on time just keeps running out. i will keep trying to leave comments each time i log on.
I uploaded my pictures to the gallery but they don’t show up, do they have to be approved or something, it said the the upload was successful but there they don’t show up any where. Does anyone have some ideas how I could fix this?
I’ve sent you an email Katy
Karen I didn’t get an email.
I see your LO is in the gallery. Are you still having problems?
yeah, I can’t get my card to load, it was up there once and it cut off the bottom, so I tried to load it again and now I keep getting a fatal error message. I am not sure why my picture came up so small either.
Katy, can you please email me your LO and I’ll see what i can do for you
Wow, the gallery is looking amazing! I can’t believe there was so much purple out there!!! I haven’t been able to leave comments for everyone, but to all: great job, and here’s to next week’s challenge not involving purple.
i never knew there were so many shades of purple….. doesnt the gallery look fantastic. you ladies should all be so proud of yourselves the work is second to none.
I agree the gallery looks so pretty all Purple.Voting is going to be very hard as I love more then just 3 LO’s everyone has done an amazing job some very ispiring creations in the gallery.I can’t wait to see what week 2 will have us doing…
Is round one over to upload…?
on the voting… are only people who are on the list the ones who are voting? I am confused on who is the voter.
Some amazing layouts girls and WOW what we can do with the dreaded purple hehe.
Good Luck to all
Finished with purple………….now on to green!!! EEEKKKK! I think I would rather purple!! LOL
Anyone is welcome to vote.
Sophia, please send your LO through. I know that a couple of people were confused with the time zones, so we’ll allow this week to go thru.
Yay to green – have yummy goodies to to use on this LO.
Question about voting:
Do we vote on cards?
And if so – is that a separate vote?
Done my LO and card for 2nd sin – love it (the stash I thought I was going to use was green & white so had to go through stash to find something different to use. Will take pic in morning an upload it.
Got my 2nd layout done last night!!! It was so hard finding just green and black!! Alot of my papers had white as well… IN the end i had to paint black paint over the other colours in the pp. But im really happy with how my layout turned out!!
It really pushed the creative juices just sticking to those colours doesnt it!!!
The LO’s and Cards in gallery are looking really amazing.
Next Sin challenge is up girls
I recieved some Happy mail today for my It’s all About me LO
Being picked as LO of the Week…Thank you so Much..I love the stamp and the papers ..Wow I got so much.Thanks Tam and Karen.
this wrath thing allows you to really investigate your soul. I’ve found out that I’m just not really a very angry person. I noticed that the gallery is slow this time. Anyone else struggling?
Rachel. I found out I was a VERY angry person!!! LOL Got to keep it locked up.
I loved this as therapy, and I feel so much better. These concepts are really challenging and I have never been so far out of my comfort zone. Thanks to which ever Princess that thought of this!!!
I’m thinking on my layout now.
I too got some happy mail today. Thanks gir;s.

I was having problems with this one two I am not a very angry person and only know of one place where I get angry so I used that it is a little different to the LO’s that are up in the gallery at the moment but I’m sure people will relate.All of these challenges have challenged me I don’t normaly look that closly at myself when I scrap.So I would also like to thank the Wicked Princess that thought of this comp…It has been Fun!(So Far)…
we’re glad that you’re enjoying it !! How is everyone going?? Only have a couple of days left to get your Wrath entry loaded.
Mines done and uploaded.. Bring on the next sin…lol
got mine in this morning too. I need to work on a card tonight. I almost forgot about it. There are so many other things going on this week that I don’t normally have going on. Great work so far everyone and yes, thanks to the creator of this challenge because they are all really stretching me; which is exactly what I wanted!
Karen & I are so glad you are enjoying the competition, every week we are blown away with all your entries, your pages are filled with such honesty..Thanks so much for sharing them with us..
Keep it up girls, you are all doing amazing!
Just wanted to check that i have it right…week 3 is to be monochromatic LIGHT blue, not allkinds of blue ?
Has to be light blue – no navy in the LO
hoping to do this weeks challenge tomorow.. and get some cards done too.. im a bit behind on the card thing.. i go through stages with making cards.. once i start i go for weeks.. lol
hi everyone. i was just wondering where the details of the next challenge are. i have looked everywhere and cant find the details. sorry to be a pain.
dont worry ladies i found it. gee that seems to be the way lol. i open my mouth and then it magically appears pmsl.
My page is up now to work on the card tonight. Loving the gallery so far girls.
just a quick note ladies to wish you all the luck in the comp. unfortunately due to time restraints (called having 4 kids) i am unable to keep going. i will keep popping in and leaving comments when i can. all i can say is that this has been a heap of fun and all of you should be very proud of how fantastic all your pages are. good luck.
Sorry to hear that marnie, but understand how life is so busy right now.
for everyone else, the DT work is on the blog as is the Card Challenge.
Not long to go now ……
Sorry to hear that Marnie…
On a brighter note another Sin bites the dust.I loved the colour combo on this one..All ready for the next sin now.
Bummer Marnie (but I understand) – only just this weeks in (had to do it last night – having the flu again doesn’t help).
When are the new ones up – I thought it would of been up already, come on Princess wake up so I can see the criteria….
YAY bring on week 7 .. i dont think i have ever got to the end of a comp b4…this has been fun girls.. and i have jumped out of my comfy zone on more than one occassion.. roll on sat morning.. cant wait to see what the last challenge is..xx
Wooo Hoooo!! I’m done!! And I tell you there will be no monochromatic layouts on my desk for a while to come – bring on the colour LOL… Thanks ladies, it sure has been a “challenge” every week.
Well I am all done to and I just wanted to say Thank You to all the Princesses for showing us some beautiful example LO’s each week they are truly inspiring and Thanks Karen and Tam for a fun Wicked Competition I Loved it.Can’t wait for the next one. Best of Luck to everyone.Hanging out for the announcement of the winners now!
It has been a great 7 weeks and some of the criteria had me groaning but it has been great.
Question: when do we find out the results?
Thanks Princesses for the fun (now I might have time to get back into doing the sketches)
Thanks for a fun 7 weeks. I’ve enjoyed looking at each of the entries and creating my own entry each week. I’ve grown so much and I owe it all to this contest!
Thanks so much girls for a wonderful competition!! Talk about a stretch!!! Some of the criteria really had me pulling out my hair!
Ive never used so much black!!
The closest scrap booking shop is 600kms away, so whatever i have is what i get to use, so sometimes, it just came down to stamping and paint!!!
But it was so much fun and i am really going to miss the adrenalin fix of having to get inspired, scrapped and uploaded all in a week!!
Thanks so much girl, and also to the DT for all your awesome sample layouts! You really are very inspiring!!
Where is the bingo game happening?
It said 7pm and this is the chat room right?
