Sunday Scrappin’ 3/29

sundayscrappinbuttonCome play with us over at Sunday Scrappin’!ย  It’s getting lonely over there—rememember: the challenges are optional! We just want to know your scrapping projects and goals for the week!

Without further ado:

TA-DAs:

Illness breeds crafting productivity. ๐Ÿ™‚ I was sick with some nasty stomach bug, but managed these projects:

cimg7991This is a birthday card for my sister’s 14th birthday. PPs are “Grandma’s Wallpaper, HP 393” (Hambly) and the green is from Target’s dollar bins. ๐Ÿ™‚ Ribbon is from the “Uptown Green” (flipside) Elements set by American Crafts. Flower and buttons are “miniMarks: Market Accents” by American Crafts, plus some assorted vellum stickers.

These thumbnails are different views of an easter card for my friend based on a very cute picture of my friend’s baby mistaking his dad’s nose for a food source… The caption reads, “Somebunny’s hungry…”
Trifold pale pink cardstock is pre-cut from Paper Source, epoxy eyelet charm is from Making Memories Spring Fling line, PP on inside of card is from the Marrakech 6×6 Paper Pad by Basic Grey.

cimg7997_2 Hopefully the recipient of this LO won’t read my blog before she gets this in the mail. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I’m not totally happy with it, but I liked the sentiment of “surrounded by love” and having the baby surrounded by his family including: paternal grandma, maternal great-grandma, maternal step-grandma, maternal grandpa, maternal grandma, maternal step-grandpa…and yeah, I got mom and dad in there too. ๐Ÿ™‚ The alphas didn’t come out as well as I would have liked.
Background paper is #NT 104 “Far-Out/Buff” dbl. sided paper from Paper Loft; PP is Jack’s World: Animal Friends from Cosmo Cricket and the alpha stickers are from Target.

TO-DOs:

  • Easter cards…I went to an antique store yesterday and bought a bunch of vintage Easter cards and other materials. ๐Ÿ™‚
  • LO for another friend

As for next week’s “single-layer challenge”….we shall see. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  OH! And here is a new find.ย  I just LOVE the patterned paper…I can’t wait until Scrapbook.com starts carrying their stuff (I have hope).ย  Of course, I think, in honor of Earth Day in April, I’m going to pledge only to use my stash/recycled goods & papers for the entire month.

Thanks for visiting!

Sunday Scrappin’ 3/15

Come join us over at Sunday Scrappin’ the weekly meme for paper crafters.

TA-DAs for this week:

Actually, it was pretty darn good…two cards and a layout!

cimg7915NEW BABY CARD (Sunday Scrappin’ “use pastels” challenge):

Patterned Paper isย  Heidi Grace for Fiskars “Baby Boy/Buggy”; scrap of gold ribbon, blue brads from Frills (Textured Trios-Spring) from Queen & Co.

cimg7914BIRTHDAY CARD for ALICE (my niece)

White cardstock, covered in “Blossoms on Chocolate/Pinwheel” double-sided PP from Paper Source (#23908); ribbon and brads (lavender/green set) from Making Memories (#27199); Cosmo Cricket – Hello Sunshine Collection – 12×24 Die Cut Button Fashions – Alphabet

cimg7924OREGON, 2005

I’m finally going through my old photos and starting to get them in scrapbooks…these are from a trip/conference to Eugene, OR (these bridges aren’t in Eugene, but nearby).ย  As it often is in the PacNW, it was a grey and drizzly day, but still very beautiful.ย  I wanted to use muted colors that would complement the photos.ย  I might go back and add some journaling, but we’ll see. PP: Making Memories Travel Collection; Cardstock stickers: Scrapworks Magpie Collection.

TO-DOs:

I don’t plan on getting much accomplished this week since I’ll be in Denver, CO.ย  However, I WILL take lots of photos to scrapbook (maybe in another four years or so…LOL).

Sunday Scrappin’ 3/1

It has been a long time since I’ve participated in Sunday Scrappin‘!ย  But since I did do a week bit of paper-crafting this week, I figured I’d post!

TA-DAs:ย  I completed some more coasters.ย  I tried to re-use some paper from a gift bag (the chartreuse ones with green flowers), but the paper was too thin I think. While they will still work, they don’t look as nice because the ridges from the can lid stick out too much. I’m also looking into a glass cutter (at the suggestion of a friend) so that I can make them resistant to heat and condensation.ย  These latest ones I did while on the phone with my mom (shh…don’t tell her!).
