Last weekend was National Scrapbook Day (on Saturday), and I had a very busy day. I was fortunate enough to have the day to create and have fun and participate in some great challenges!
I got to hang out at Scraptures, with the fun gals there, and there was lots of creating and chatter going on for the day! I even managed to get some things accomplished!
One of the challenges was to take a sketch and make 4 cards from it, simply by turning the sketch.The other specification was that each card had to be for a different occasion. For these cards I was able to use up different scraps from Bo Bunny, 3Bugsinarug and even some really old Basic Grey. I love that I can get things accomplished from my scrap bucket, as I don't throw anything away! It is all just so pretty, and I know that there is always something that can be done with it down the road.
Here are my cards:
Another challenge was to use a photo that was shared for inspiration. The photo was of a multi-coloured sock. I loved the colours, and this is what I came up with: For this project I used toilet paper rolls and created this fun little Valentine type booklet. I used the Bo Bunny Love Bandit papers for this project, which were just perfect! On one of the sheets of paper, there are actually Valentines. They were the perfect size to fit inside each of the toilet paper rolls. I added ribbon to each one to make it easier to pull it out! I love the finished result here! Too cute!
Then there was a layout sketch challenge and I turned the layout so that it would work with my photos. For this layout I was able to pull out some really old Basic Grey papers that have been sitting around for quite some time. It is a pretty simplistic layout, but I am happy with this one, as well.
As usual, I didn't get as much done as I would have liked, but that is nothing new. There is never enough time in my days to get all of the projects and ideas done that are always swimming around in my head.
Since the new month has begun, I have been swamped with creating and not finding a whole lot of time for posting here on my blog, but hopefully that will all settle down very soon. Lots of life things happening, scrappy things happening, and well, I just have to find the balance!
