Scraps of thoughts, photos and art

Scenic Route

Here’s another one using the techniques from Shimelle and her class, Love Your Pictures, Love Your Pages. It’s not too late to join!

I’m having a blast using up my supplies and scrapping for myself! I’ve frequently been on teams where I need to use a certain product, sketch or technique. I’m pretty lean with that commitment right now, so I’m really enjoying the change. It’s funny how you don’t realize it until a time like this.

Supplies:
Scenic Route patterned paper
BasicGrey chipboard letters
Prima flowers

Here are some new recipe pages for you. I actually had some time while sitting in front of the tv this weekend to sort the ones that I’ve accumulated from the different swaps this year. Holy cow, I have a shoebox full of them! I think that I might start binding them with the Bind-It-All. Or maybe I’ll put 4 on a 12×12 page?

What do you think, 6×6 album or 12×12 page?

Wow, can’t believe that I haven’t posted for 3 weeks! As you can imagine, I’ve been busy with work and not too much time for crafting.

BUT, I have been crafting here and there and have stuff to share! I have scrapbook pages – can you believe that I did 3 pages this weekend???! I have cards and an ATC.

To start, here’s a single scrapbook page that I’ve been trying to do for a year and a half now!! “What is the problem” is what you’re probably asking yourself. Well just me! I’ve had this paper from Scenic Route for almost that amount of time, so that part was worked out.

Here it is —-> I needed the right sketch! Thanks to Becky Fleck and her blog, I FINALLY got the right layout. I used a bargain border punch that I found stashed in the Michael’s clearance bin for $5 I think it was – just knew there would be a perfect page for it and I was RIGHT! Love it when that happens! 😉

So, here’s the single page that took me almost 2 years to get it together. Click on the picture for a zoom in.

See you later! Be back every day this week to share more goodies.

Birthday cards, stamps, Prism cardstock and Scenic Route. Ahhh yes, Scenic Route. It’s so sad to see them close their business, but I can understand doing so during such hard and uncertain times.

Stamping is such a stress reliever! I’ve spent all day doing housework/spring cleaning or whatever you want to call it. To relax to me, is to stamp! I’ve taken a couple of my recent acquisitions, put them together and met a cool sketch challenge on Card Positioning Systems (CPS). I used sketch #123.

I’ve stamped and embossed with detail embossing powder (the really fine powder meant for skinny lines, text and those really intricate images) the 3 party girls (Unity Stamps). The foundation paper is Prism cardstock. The patterned paper and chipboard “wild thing” is Scenic Route. The dot circle and saying (The Stamps of Life) are stamped with Tsukineko ink.

Thanks for stopping by today!
