Recipe Challenge

It's that time of week again, time for another Recipe challenge. This week's challenge was to use a diecut, ribbon & buttons. The card I made was also from a technique I tried over at the Cuttlebug Challenge blog, the technique was to do weaving with your paper then emboss it. One of the Design Team members, Lori Boyd has a tutorial on how to do this Here. I picked up a new cuttlebug cut & emboss die "love language" and used it for my card.

Recipe Challenge

This week's challenge was to use notebook paper, inking or paint and a journal box. At first this was a challenge for me but after I started pulling things together it all came out, now I just need to figure out who Im going to give it to :) I used my newest cuttlebug folder for the background & inked that with pink ink, the strips of paper & notebook paper are from Making Memories, the journal box was a stamp I had, the jewels are Hero Arts & the "X, O" I had laying around.

Some Projects

I actually scrapped this weekend! So, I thought I'd share what I made. This first project I made was something we did over at http://www.scrapfreak.com/ I painted a cookiesheet to use for a sort of message board, this one will display the week's menu. The scalloped ovals are magnets. I initially was going to do a whole meal planner but thought something a little more simple would be better.

And this project is a Valentine's banner. Now I'd like to do some sort of Valentine theme on the mantle. The pic doesn't show the details very well you can see the individual letters HERE

That's it from this weekend, I'll be back Tuesday to share my card I made for Tamara's recipe challenge.

Some Cards

I've been slacking off on posting on my blog, I actually haven't even been doing too much scrapping these days but I do have some cards from the past couple weeks that I can share today.

This 1st one I made last weekend during a New Year's crop that was going on over at scrapfreak. The whole crop was about scrapping "green" and the challenges were to recycle/reuse things you would typically just toss out. This challenge was to use packaging that comes along with the product you buy. So for this card I used the clear piece of decorative acetate that came along with the Making Memories "noteworthy" journaling pad I got. Some of those manufacturers really have pretty packaging. This was the only thing I made during the crop but I did get a lot of inspiration & ideas and I look at things differently now too, and think about how I could reuse something.

This card was one I made for Tamara's recipe challenge and the recipe we were to use for this one was bare chipboard, twine & old paper.

And this card is another one of Tamara's recipe challenges. For this one we had to use Kraft paper, lace & brads.
Thanks for looking & maybe I'll have something more to share soon, no promises though lol.
