Using My Scraps

This weekend I decided I would try making a card using majority scrap papers.  It was a little challenging but I think I did a good job.  I finally used some ribbon that I found on my Scrapping Trip with my BFF Ericka in July! Hope you like.

These are the scraps that I chose.  I love the dotted page!

The final product!!!!!

Paper: Bazzil Swiss Dotted, KI Memories
Punches: Martha Stewart Butterflies, Creative Memories
Embellishments: Papertry Ink; button
Stitching: Bazzil In Stitchz

Nonetheless, check out my card and tell me what you think!!!!! You can also go to Mojo Monday and check out the sketch and other crafters and their interpretation of the sketch.

Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #84

Happy Monday!!!!

Today I convinced Ericka to complete the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #84 from The Sweetest Thing blog with me. I think she enjoyed it!!  Go check out her card over at her blog My Ebony Cards.

For my card I used Bazzil Swiss Dot Card stock, Olivia paper pad from Basic Grey, Martha Stewart punch for the butterflies, and Hero Arts stamp for the sentiment.

I thought the card seemed to dark when I intially chose the colors but they grew on me.  I really like the end product.

Altered Notepad

When getting ready to return to work after a long summer I usually buy a notepad/notebook of some kind.  I always try and find a really cute one with a printed design on it.  I am sure you know what I mean.  Well this year since I have all this product from making cards and scrapbook pages, I thought I would try my hand at making an "altered notepad".  So in this post you will see the before and after. I think it is really great!!!  Leave me a post and let me know what you think.
