More Catching Up!

Whew! I just realized how behind I am on posting my projects! This post is just catching me up with posts - a whole variety of projects I made for various reasons, mostly as Design Team projects for Simply Scrapping Crafts.

This first project is my little nephew Michael, and I made this sample for SSC July Sketchy Saturday Week 2. These are Cosmo Cricket papers, alphabets are Jillibean Soup, American Crafts, and Cosmo Cricket, and I used a variety of trims and jewels.

I made this little 3" x 3" mini book for SSC Paper Scraps July Week 1. I cut apart a piece of flat cardboard that I had, painted the edges with Ranger crackle paint, used The Girl Paperie patterned papers, and added a variety of embellishments from my collections. The book contains small photos of my mother along with facts about her life, family, etc.

This card was for the SSC July Week 1 Creative Corner challenge. The challenge was to use recycled and/or repurposed materials, along with newsprint or bookprint. The flower and shaped edge are from a Prima flowers package. The acrylic portion of the flower is from packaging also. The bookprint background is from an old book I purchased at a local antique shop for a couple of dollars.

SSC June Week 4 Sketchy Saturdays. I modified the sketch into a card. If you like the flowers, they are so easy to make. Just punch two of the same image, glue them together using a GLUE STICK (only a glue stick gives you the right bendability), let them dry for a few minutes, then bend them into the shape you want.

I made this card for the SSC Summer Kickoff Weekend challenges. Clare had a bug-inspired challenge, and you had to use some sort of bug(s), but not butterflies. Our dear Amy had done this digital stamp of a dragonfly, so I colored it using pencils and gamsol, and added it to this card.

This card was also for the SSC Summer Kickoff. There was a little recipe of items that your card or layout had to use, so this was my creation. I ended up using this for a graduation card for one of my dear young high school friends.

During the SSC Summer Kickoff, I did a Lemonade Stand Recipe Challenge, where you had to make a card or layout with certain items/shapes/colors to represent a lemonade stand. This was my creation.

June Week 4 Paper Scraps Challenge was to create a frame around your photo or main image using paper scraps. This was my creation. This is my son Chris when he was about 4 years old - he's now 16!!! He still has his Buddy!

This is my daughter Michelle at Disney World. She is my princess! This was for the SSC June Sketchy Saturday Week 2.

I fell in love with this image from Bella Design Studio - what an adorable little cat! I colored him using gamsol and colored pencils, and added the flower made from Webster's Pages Bloomers and trim.

This card was for another SSC challenge for the Creative Corner June Week 4. The challenge was to use this flower template and make a flower to use on a card or layout.

Whew! Well, thanks for hanging in there with me, and thanks for stopping by! Hugs!
