I hope everyone had a nice weekend...I'm sad it's coming to a close. However, I have a slightly short work week (I only have to work half a day on Friday) due to the July 4th holiday.
As usual, I checked Creative Scrappers this morning to see the weekly sketch...and I loved it (of course). Here is my layout made from it:
The layout is also for another challenge blog that I found recently, The Studio Challenges. Their current challenge is to scrap about something summery. Why not some summer lovin'? :o)
Have a great week!! And don't forget about my current giveaway...going on for just a few more days :o)
Happy, happy Saturday! I love the weekends oh-so-much :) I have a new layout to share with you today. I am really looking forward to the Fourth of July...it's one of my favorite holidays...so since I was thinking about it so much today, I decided to make a red, white and blue layout! Here it is:
I finally caved in and bought a sewing machine...which I am absolutely terrible at using. Grrr... I know that I will get the hang of it eventually. It's just going to take some practice. I tried to make the pages sewn together look all neat and nice, but I think I was sewing too fast, so it didn't work out too well...I decided to use it anyways...I will keep praciticing, though. I just have to get some patience first ;)
I also tried a new fun technique with twine. I have seen a lot of digital layouts recently that looked like there was twine weaving all about the layout, so I decided to try it with the real thing. I'm pretty satisifed with how it turned out. I held the twine in place with some tiny brads. It was something fun and new to try.
Thanks for stopping by...enjoy the rest of your weekend.
So, recently, I have been a pitiful example of a crafty person. This weekend I sort of lost my "mojo" and it hasn't entirely returned to me yet. That hasn't stopped me from wanting to be creative, though. Luckily, I came across the perfect little project. I told you the other day that I happened upon the ScrapFIT blog and I just know it's going to be one of my new addicitons...Currently, they have a "mini workout" posted. For this "mini workout" all you have to do is make a tag. Here is mine:This was a fun little project that was quick, but may also help me get my "mojo" back on track. What do you do when you lose your creative "mojo?" I'd love some recommendations :)
Have a nice day!!
I have a quick layout that I want to share with you: I made this with a sketch done by Amy Oxford. Seriously love her stuff...go check out her blog for tons of fun inspiration. Both the sketch I used for this layout and the street signs that I used in the current SOTB challenge can be found on her blog here.
I also used the May Polka Dot Whimsy kit for this. It was full of yummy summer-themed goodies :) I loved the May kit in particular because it made me put together colors that I normally don't gravitate towards. It's always fun to go outside your own box a bit, don't ya think?
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!
Seriously, though, you should bounce on over to TAAFOMFT because they are doing a massive giveaway for this challenge...there will be 27 winners!! You can't go wrong with that :)
I also did made this layout for the current ScrapFIT Challenge: to use a machine...they classified punches as a machine, so my Martha Stewart loopy punch counts... (I just found that awesome challenge blog for the first time...I think I'm going to become an addict):
Anyway, here is the layout:Thanks for stopping by...enjoy the work week!!
I'm so proud of him :)
Also, don't you just adore those street signs? Every Friday, Amy Oxford posts a "Freebie Friday" and this was one of them. You have to go check out her blog...there are tons of inspirational things over there!!
The winner of this challenge gets a gift card to iTunes, so bounce on over and have a looksy!
