I have a couple of projects that I completed while my friend was here. We scrapped non-stop and I already miss her! It was a blast though because we gave each other our own challenges. One challenge was we each picked a stamp set for the other to use and had to create a stamp with it, the next was using a certain folder of scraps, then we had to pick a draw of die cuts and make a card with something out of it...and so on and so on. I had printed out a bunch of sketches and themes for challenges and based my projects around them. Since my time is limited I tried to kill two birds with one stone.
My fellow "Sistah" Kim has a wonderful challenge going on this week over at her blog
Sketches in Thyme. I used her sketch and my friends Tinkerbell cartridge that I don't own to complete this sketch for the album I am doing for my friend Christine. I used my CTMH Playful Flourishes stamp set to randomly stamp on plain card stock different colored flourishes. There is another matching side to this LO but you can't see that until a little later on..(it's for an upcoming sketch challenge that has not been released yet for another blog).
I completed another page for my friend Christine's album using my yummy yummy goodies that I received in the mail the other day. I won a fabulous wheel PK Glitter Glitz. The set I won was the Spring I set which contained these colors:
SPRING I - Honey, Burgundy, Gilded Fern, Merlot, Aquamarine, Gilded Ivory
These pictures were taken the day she gave birth to her daughter. She was waiting to go to the hospital to have her so I thought I would do a baby "bump" page. I cut out the word BUMP on my Cricut and sprayed it with Craft Bond and covered it in the MERLOT. I also followed the sketch on the PK Glitz blog. I left a couple of areas blank for her to journal on.
For one of the challenges she gave me she picked out my PK-244 Bee Happy stamp set. I had to make a card using this stamp set and only scraps. I found this little strip of DP that I cut off the paper where it attaches to the pad. I couldn't believe I actually saved a piece this small but then I started laughing because I actually used it!! See now I know why I save these things!!
This card fits the challenges over at The Cuttlebug Spot and Stamptacular Sunday Challenge. The challenge over at The Cuttlebug Spot was to use embossing which I did on the yellow card stock with one of my Cuttlebug folders. The challenge over at Stamptacular Sunday was a CUTE AS A BUG theme.
