It's Party Time at The Outlawz!

Are you ready to PARTY!  We hope so!  The time we've all been waiting for has finally arrived!  It's time for The Outlawz 1000 Member Party!  This is a huge milestone for our site and we are celebrating with fun games, a tutorial blog hop, scavenger hunts and lots, lots more! All seven of our challenge groups will also be participating in the party for the whole week. Unlike our regular week, all of the challenges will start now (Monday, 12:01 AM) and each will have a different challenge for you to play in to win even more prizes!

The 1000 Member Party has a tab with a drop-down menu in the top tool bar on the main page of The Outlawz site. Be sure to access all 7 links in the menu to participate in all the games, the banner posting contest, the blog hop and to be eligible for even more prizes!  

On to the festivities!  First up is the tutorial Blog Hop! The DT has worked hard to present to you with fun technique tutorials and awesome samples to inspire you! Be sure to comment on all of the blogs along the way to be eligible for 9 prizes! Each blog is giving away a prize and one random grand prize will be drawn at The Outlawz from those of you who have commented on every blog and entered your name into Inlinkz here.

My DT sister, Jo, is hosting the blog hop tutorial for our Copic/Promarker Challenge Group.  Jo has a fabulous tutorial for making Z-fold cards on her blog.  For the Copic/Promarker Challenge this week, the theme is "fall" and the twist is to use a different kind of fold.  The DT all followed Jo's tutorial for our samples, but you can use any special fold you'd like!

Here are a few photos of my sample card for the challenge:

Here is a shot showing the Z fold:

And finally, here is the inside:

I started with a piece of GKD Heavy Base Weight Ivory cut to 4 1/2" x 11".  This was scored and folded at 2" and 6 1/2".   I cut two panels of Ivory to 5 1/2" square for the front and back.  All the panels were layered with Bazzill Purple Pizzazz and Painted Desert and patterned paper from the K & Co. Kelly Panacci Halloween collection. I assembled the card following Jo's instructions.  I printed the adorable digi images from Anne Fenton called Cute Witch Trick or Treat and Cute Witch Small onto Cryogen White Iridescent and colored them with Copic Markers.   They were cut out and framed with Spellbinders Scallop and Classic Circle Nestabilities.  The sentiment was computer-generated.  A triple loop bow of purple sheer ribbon and a few rhinestone leaves finished my card.

I know this was a long post, but you won't want to miss a single thing going on at big party!  You can always go back to the main page of The Outlawz site for all the party details and links.  Most importantly, don't forget to visit the sites of our fantastic sponsors!  This wouldn't be possible without their amazingly generous support!  A list of the sponsors and their fabulous prizes is on the sidebar of the main page!

Have fun and good luck!
