Sunday Scrappin’ #44: A FOP and two cards

Sunday Scrappin’ is a weekly paper-crafters’ meme where we list our TO-DOs, TA-DAs and participate in optional weekly challenges. Won’t you join us?

Well, this week was a tad more productive than prior weeks–pretty odd since I started teaching again. I’ve given up trying to decide my crafting cycles.

TA-DAs:

  • I did manage to do this past week’s challenge: use unopened embellishments from your stash. I spruced up the old stationery box and filled it with scrap paper and stationery for my teenage sister who lives far away (and who is just getting into scrapbooking). On the top of the box, I used three “icicles” from k-i memories, that I picked up at Target awhile back

MATERIALS: Paper (Target scraps package); Maya Road Tranquility Sunflower Slide; Dashes, Dots, & Checks Ribbon; Letters are from Anna Griffin Friends Rub on Kit; Ice Candy “Poolside” icicles (ki memories).

I sent it with this card:

MATERIALS: copper-colored glossy cardstock; “Heart of Love” stamp (Hero Arts); Tag (Target Scrapbooking); sentiment is from Anna Griffin Friends Rub-On kit; “Floral Accents” embellishments (Marcella by K); lavender pigment ink (ColorBox) and Old Rose Sparkle EP (JudiKins).

  • I also made a birthday card for a dear friend. It is a short fold, so the sheer ribbon on the bottom is actually on the inside of the card.

MATERIALS: “Noah” rub on letters (Maya Road); sheer “swirls” ribbon (Maya Rd); large letters are Anna Griffin “Friends” rub on kit; paper is from a faux vintage set–the flag bunting is cut out of one of the patterns; Swirls rub ons (Maya Road)

TO-DOs:

  • meet next week’s Sunday Scrappin’ challenge: use something from the kitchen. It could be tin foil as an embellishment… a food label to decorate a page… Kool Aid to make a scratch and sniff card… use your imagination!
  • one layout for wedding album

Thanks for reading! Hopefully neither the recipient of the box or the card read this blog this week!!

Goodbyes and Open Doors

Two recent projects.

First, is my postcard for this week’s challenge over at Sunday Postcard Art. The theme is “doors.”

This is an interactive postcard :-). Since once the door is opened it isn’t meant to be closed, I didn’t remove the ribbon completely in order to photograph the version with the door open. 🙂 Sorry.

MATERIALS: scalloped cardstock (Target kit) on Strathmore watercolor postcard; 5th Avenue shimmer stickers (Making Memories); acrylic/clear stamps–Swirls V: I by Rhonna Farrer (Autumn Leaves); paper by Anna Griffin (AG933); flower cut from an old notecard I received (Pepperpot by Gift Wrap Co.); Ranger Clear E.P. on Black Pigment ink (ColorBox); metallic red curling ribbon; black eyelets (for latch).

Now, while I have been working mostly with scrapbooking and cardmaking, I do like to do other types of projects. I altered this plain wood picture frame for some friends who are moving away. The picture is a well-loved photo of the four of us together.

I painted it with DreamCoat acrylic paint, used an Amy Butler designer mat (K&Co) K, some ribbon from my stash, some wooden tulips I picked up years ago, and a Sharpie!
