5 New Ones

I actually pulled out my Cricut to make the envies and tags for this LO!

Can you believe that it took me over 3 hours to complete this? Martha gave me the PP (because I loved it. LOL!) and she also inspired me to use my bug more! Basically once I cut the envies on the Cricut I ran them through my CB to emboss them, sanded them, and then inked them. I glimmer misted the base paper to make it match the PP (I tried to use some of the PP as the base, but it was to dark.). I then pulled out my stamps and made the swirls behind the flower. I also pulled out a punch to make the picture mats. Thankfully, since I took so long on it I like it!

This one was made from SU! paper. I love this paper! The flower I made from the matching fabric in the line. The flowers were originally white and I glimmer misted them blue.

The following two LOs were made with my "Counterfeit" kit that I put together. I actually have made 5 LOs with the kit! I am super happy about that because it got the stuff out of my stash!

This last LO is made with SU! product as well. It is actually the sewing line, but I thought it matched this picture well. Leave it to me to use paper and product in the exact opposite of how they should be used!

#7 & 9

I can tell it is coming to the end of my scrappy time because I am trying to double up on challenges! LOL! I only have one more challenge as of now (#8)and will get to that just as soon as I upload this. So challenge 7 was to doodle on a LO. I did that on the flowers and stem. I so suck at doodling! LOL! Challenge 9 was to make and add layered flowers to a LO. I kind of cheated because I have had these die cuts forever, but the matched, so there you have it.

This is Marlene and she is *wonderful*. I really enjoyed getting to know her and she is so much fun! I can't wait to see her again the next time she is out my way.

Challenge 5 & 6

I combined challenge 5 & 6 on a LO. For challenge 5 I was to use Ephemera on a LO and I used the "Kickoff" book we got at the Cardinals game. For challenge 6 I was to pick either black or white and add one accent color. I picked white and added red. I did this silly LO about how I am missing my football now that it is March :-(

In case you can not tell, we are HUGE Cardinals fans....HUGE!


For Challenge 4 Liz had us make three cards using scraps or stash, a layered element, ribbon and sentiment. Perfect challenge for me because I have been putting off doing my Easter cards for weeks now. Guess how many I needed? 3 ;-)


For Challenge number 3 Nina provided a great sketch and had us make flowers. This is what I came up with:


Challenge number 2 for today was to scraplift myself. This is the LO I lifted:

This is what I came up with:

I LOVE it! I can't believe I was able to use the same type subject matter on it. LOL!

Obsessed Scrappers United #1

Online crop today over at OSU! Yippee! The first challenge was to make a LO using as many scraps as I could on a page. I was able to get 17 different scraps on this page. With those scraps I made 2 mats, 2 edges, the title, covered the chipboard, made the epoxy hearts and the five flowers.

Sorry for the crappy upload, but I want to get on to challenge #2! Be back a little later :-)

Look at the Pretties!

I am not the scrapper that buys an entire line of something. I do not do matchy matchy, but when I saw these two lines by SU! I knew I had to have their entirety. Check them out:

I must confess this next one is my very favorite one. I love the bright colors!

TFL! :-)

Hot Of The Press Counterfiet Challenge Kit #1

I actually started this LO over the weekend. I used this paper by "Hot of The Press" that can be misted, inked, chalked, flocked, or whatever else you want to do with it! I was a bit worried when I saw how the paper came out once I got done glimmer misting it and inking it, but once I got the picture down I was happy with it. Can you tell I am trying to use up my Thickers? Those things are like rabbits --- they just multiply :-)

I sat down yesterday while my son finished up his school work and came up with this two page LO using the March Counterfeit kit that I put together. I am so pleased with this -- you have really no idea. See, I have had the penguin stamps and paper in my stash for at least two years. I was so tickled when I found this set because penguins are my favorite animal. I thought for sure I would use it up in a flash and have many uses for those cute little stamps, but it never happened. As I was putting the kit together I was able to see the paper mixed in way I did not envision before. Then I pulled out these left over pictures from my trip back home two years ago and came up with this:

I am not very good with two page LOs. I am a one page kind of girl, but I am so happy with this on so many levels. Feels good to use up my stash! TFL!

Pink Challenge & Counterfeit Kit

Here is my pink challenge:

(scroll down to see it. Make sure you link back to the original post so that we can see what you create and a chance to win a RAK from me.)

I also put together the Counterfeit Kit for the month of March. I lifted the Studio Calico March Kit:

I have no idea what I am going to use with it or if it even works! LOL! Whatcha think?

15 Layouts

Wow! I can't believe how many LOs I have done in the last two weeks. Truth be told, I did a scrappy weekend at my house with some scrappy friends and got most of these done that weekend. Thanks for taking a peak!
