Sunday Scrappin’ #48

Yep, it is Sunday Scrappin’ time again–the weekly blogmeme for papercrafters! Come join us!

TO-DOs

Since I basically decided I was going to spend some of Friday crafting (due to the long weekend), I had a pretty incredible day of crafty accomplishments (for me). I did one project, then either worked or cleaned, another craft project, worked/cleaned…you get the picture. I wanted to get some stuff done before I have to pack up my supplies to be moved to the new house.

MATERIALS: old Christmas wrap, cardstock, rub-ons (Hambly), snowflake sequins (Queen & Co.), gel pens (Sakura), “To From” stamp (A Muse Artstamps)

  • A thank you card for our awesome realtor

MATERIALS & TECHNIQUES: red cardstock, stickers (Target), house sheer keychain (Maya Road), which I edged with VersaMark (Hero Arts), embossed with Gold Sparkle EP (Judi Kins); American Crafts ribbon, and a black eyelet to finish the hole from the keychain. (Psst…don’t tell, but the reason the letters are so random is because dummy here used glue dots to adhere the house, and then had to cover them up so you couldn’t see them…ahem).

  • Last but not least, a birthday card for my stepmom

MATERIALS: Here I refashioned a pre-existing notecard from Papyrus with some Anna Griffin paper and a letterpress tag (Paper Source). I also inked the deckled edge with “Rosebud” pigment ink (ColorBox)

Last week’s Challenge was to use orange! Well, I think I got that covered (see Moos, Thank You Card, and Birthday card for my dad). This week’s challenge is:

Use something clear. It could be acetate used for a shaker card, an altered container that’s clear, a piece of clear-ish vellum…. use your imagination!

TO-DOs

  • stay sane as we get closer and closer to move day
  • a birthday card or two

Thanks for looking, commenting and generally, just being there.

    I really like the thank you card and the birthday card you made. All of your things are pretty, you are very creative. This Christmas I’ll have to save the wrapping paper and make something with it, good idea. My sister usually keeps the bows and ribbons from pacakges.

    I think the letters on the home sweet home card look adorable scattered as they are. I also like the idea of making your own gift tags. I may have to try that!

    All your cards and gift tags are gorgeous Lyra, its fantastic how you reuse the tops of the wine bottles as embellishments.

    Hope you have a good week ahead.

    Well, that random placement of letters may have been an accident, but it totally works! That card is beautiful. Great job on all your accomplishments!
