Sunday Scrappin' is the place to be if you enjoy traditional scrapbooking, digital scrapbooking, card-making, or any other type of paper crafting. I love sharing with everyone, and I enjoy getting ideas. Mostly, it keeps me motivated.
I made four cards and three gift tags this week, and finished my Christmas Planner. It doesn't look as professional as most of the ones I've seen, but it's functional, and I used supplies that I already had, so it didn't cost me a thing! The ribbons at the top are my tabs for each section. Two of my cards were Christmas cards, one was a sympathy card, and one was a get-well card. Two of my little gift tags are very plain because I was basically just practicing with my new heat embosser. (Thanks for the quick tutorial, Chrissy!)
I also did some digital scrapbooking - trying to get gifts ready!
Scrapbook, scrapbook, scrapbook! I'm going to sort photos and plan layouts now. I also have three more Christmas cards planned. Last, I need to get some digital layouts done so I can print them and send them to the grandparents for Christmas.
Last week's challenge was to use a new template, which, sadly, I didn't do. This week's challenge is a bit different, and I love it! Since Amy was having trouble coming up with a challenge (How DOES she do it week after week, anyway?)... YOU will make the challenge for the person who follows you. Like this: the first commenter leaves an item in their comments that the person after them is challenged to use in this week's craft projects. So, if I leave a comment after Amy, she has challenged me to use the color brown in my projects this week. What a creative way to come up with lots of clever ideas for future use!
My challenge, for the person who comments after me, is to HAND WRITE a journaling box for scrapbooking or a sentiment for a card. Easy!
My challenge for all of us is to make and send a Christmas card for Holiday Mail for Heroes.
Happy Thanksgiving to all. I'll be back next week because I plan to do lots of scrapping this week!
