I've been subbing this week at the one of the local child enrichment centers (day care and learning activities) for one of the staffers in the toddler/two year olds room. The children are adorable and fun, but they do keep me busy! I've been worn out at night and content to just sit on the couch and watch television. I'm used to scrapping nearly every day, but that hasn't happened this week and I miss it. Hoping for a productive scrap filled weekend!
I do have a couple of things to share.
At Cookin' Up Creations this month, the design team is working with products from Creative Charms, The Ribbon Jar and Little Scraps of Heaven Designs. For Monday's reveal, I made two cards. For the first, I used one of the cute robot designs from Little Scraps of Heaven. The designs are available two ways -- files for SCAL to be cut with your Cricut, or a pdf for paper piecing. Since I don't own SCAL, I cut mine by hand and paper pieced it for this fun birthday card:
For my second card, I paired some vintage brads from Creative Charms with Garden Party papers from DCWV for a sympathy card:
We all know I LOVE challenges .... and I created this layout for two different challenges. Cookin' Up Creations is celebrating the forum's second anniversary with the Birthday Bash Celebration 2.0. There is a new challenge every day! This was for Day #3 -- two photos and two hand cut embellishments. It also fit the "My Scrap's Got Talent" Challenge #1 at My Scraps & More -- to use two photos and to distress or mist on the layout in some way. I used white acrylic paint and a bit of glitter paint to "distress" the white water foam in the photos, to make them stand out more. I used the May Sweet kit from Sweet Peach Crop Shop:
I created this one for the Scraplift A Member challenge at Cookin' Up Creations. The entire Design Team chose a layout by forum member Patti, and each of us scraplifted it. This one was my version. I also used it for a challenge at Inspired 2 Scrap to use journaling strips on a layout:
Have a great weekend!
