After being so focused on scrapbooking for the last four weeks, I’m really having trouble now starting anything else. Thank goodness for the card challenges. Here’s my take on the challenge from My Favorite Things #352.
With the Deck the Halls Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! having been sitting on my workbench for a couple of weeks it was a given to use it. With wood grain papers a current favourite of mine, this was the next obvious choice. Here’s the sketch from My Favorite Things.
Here’s hoping that with next week being a new month my mojo finally kicks in, giving me a jump-start on a project or two. Fingers-crossed!
My mammoth month of scrapbooking has come to an end. In just four weeks I completed three albums encompassing two Spring Breaks making for one happy momma. Feels so good to know those memories are now in books.
And as much as I enjoyed putting those three scrapbook albums together, I have to admit I’m now more than a little happy to have time to make some cards. Today’s card below was for Freshly Made Sketches 306.
I’ve had this Chicken Wire Die-Cut for the longest time and worked perfectly with this background when I was looking for that extra little something. All of course topped off with a beautiful Prima Flower.
Yesterday I was in desperate need of a change. In the last week I have created a dozen two-page scrapbook pages. I’m almost half-way through this album with still a second album to do. What can I say, Spring Break 2013 was very good!
For a change of direction yesterday I worked with the My Favorite Things Card Challenge #348. My card is not quite what I envisioned and feel it is still lacking something but right now that something eludes me.
This is the sketch given by My Favourite Things for the challenge. As you can see, I certainly didn’t stray far from the design at all.
As for now, it’s time to get back into the school routine with two teenagers who really don’t want to return to high school today. Wish me luck!
