Sunday Scrappin'


We'd love more people to join us for Sunday Scrappin'! If you do any sort of scrapbooking or paper crafting, come on over!
My Ta-Da's this week include the following:
My first ever handmade Christmas card. Not happy with how the paper turned out after inking. I like the stocking okay. I made my own pattern and cut it out then stickled the edges of the white part. You can't tell in the picture, but the white paper is textured. I stamped a sentiment on the inside. It's too plain. Still thinking about how to go about my next attempt.











Next is a "to/from" tag for Christmas. Very simple. Just a stamp, some ribbon, and a cute penguin cut out.

I made a two page Halloween layout (not from this year's festivities). I used the fuzzy papers for photo mounting and embellishments that I recieved in a goody package from Stamps, Scraps and More. The paper is from my stash.
And I used Smilebox to make two digital pages, one of my son playing baseball and the other of my daughter at her recent band concert.


My To-Do's"
Check out the challenges and sketches at Sunday Scrappin', 52 Sketches, DRS Designs, Dreamgirls, Pagemaps, Stamps, Scraps & More, Papertake Weekly, and Friday Sketchers. I won't do them all, but I will get ideas. I wish I could create like those professionals!
I hope I get at least four pages done this week. I need to print some digital pages, too. And I'd like to try another tag and Christmas card.
Challenge:
The Sunday Scrappin' challenge last week was to use ribbon. I used some red ribbon on my tag. This week's challenge (and I read this AFTER I wrote the post) is to use a sketch found online to complete a layout or a card. Amy has a few links up at the SS site to help us out. Happy scrappin'!

P. S. Day 2 of NaBloPoMo!

I love that stocking and the penguin is adorable. Your pages are fantastic. Your brave, I'm afraid to try digital. You are a professional dear, I think your creations are fantastic. Love that halloween layout.

I forgot about NabloMo. I'll have to go sign up I did post 2 days so far this month. My head is spinning between the nieghbor (he started with our company today), work, getting ready for the holidays, etc. Thanks for the reminder.

Everything looks super cute. I really like the orange and black diamond patterned paper.

I contacted Holly about the date for shipping on the swap. Hopefully I'll hear something soon. :o)
