Sunday Scrappin’ July 12, 2009



  • I’ll include THIS because it is a paper craft, kinda.
  • I also managed this little card for some friends who are getting married on Saturday. I quilled the flowers and the pp is BasicGrey’s Wisteria line:


  • I also managed an anniversary card for my husband (we celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary with a lovely day and a half in the Berkshires…Tanglewood, Hancock Shaker Village (my new favorite place) and the Norman Rockwell Museum) but I wasn’t absolutely thrilled with the results. The pp is BasicGrey’s Wisteria line, the swirl stamps are Rhonna Farrer, and the letterpress tag is from Paper Source.


Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to do Christine’s red, white and blue challenge.


I’ll be surprised if I get any crafting done in the next 10 days because I am going on VACATION!  To the other side of the country, in fact. 🙂 I’m very thrilled about this, but will miss crafting while I’m gone..especially since Amy’s challenge for this week is so enticing:

…pull something out of your “someday” file and give it a try. Always wanted to try a certain technique? Been thinking about experimenting with a new layout or embellishment? Let’s get one of those things crossed off our list this week!

But I hope everyone else has a stellar crafting week!

    Cute cards! Happy anniversary! Enjoy your vacation, that “someday” file will still be there when you get home. 🙂

    Your cards are gorgeous Lyra, I love how you used the Wisteria.
    Good work on the shades, they look wonderful.

    I hope you have a wonderful time away, can’t wait to see you when you get back.
