Practical Scrappers LO Contest Round 2!

Hey bloggie buddies! I just wanted to share the LO I made for the Practical Scrappers LO contest. I made it to round 2!!! I used the Fancy Pants Tradition collection for all the papers, button, and brads. The title is a combination of My Little Shoebox letters and American Crafts Thickers. I used my Stampin' UP modern label punch on the date and Chocolate Chip ink around the edges. You can VOTE for me here! Thanks for stopping by!!

Scrapbook Steals Mid Week Mojo Garnet 5

Whoa! We are already half way through the garnet club! It's week 5 already! And I get to scratch another wedding LO off the list! I've had a busy week so I haven't gotten as much done as I would have liked. I also decided I need to do some craft room cleaning because I could barely see the floor anymore! It looks much better! My desk is still a problem but at least I can walk in there again! For this LO I used the Basic Grey Wisteria collection. It's one of my all time faves!! I also used my favorite cricut cartridge Elegant Edges to cut out my layers. Then I added a couple Sassafras flowers but I'm not sure I like them there now....hmmm. Anyway, thanks for stopping by!

Happy Together!

Authentique put up an awesome sketch challenge this month! I used the LO sketch here, but I hope to have time to go back and do the card sketch too! Everything is from the Uncommon collection except for the Going Gray inking around the frames and the Basic Gray ribbon which are from Stampin' UP. I also used some silver liquid pearls on the frames. This is my first time using them and they are awesome!! You can make your pearls as big or small as you want! Thanks for stopping by!

Authentique: sketch
Getting Scrappy: anything goes with a cricut cut-I used Elegant Edges.

Scrapbook Steals Mid Week Mojo Garnet 4

It's another guest sketcher week for MWM Garnet #4! Charity did 2 fabulous sketches! I had to get to work right away! I used My Minds Eye Love Me collection. I love the doily theme. It worked well with my Delicate Doilies stamp set with Rose Red ink from Stampin' UP! I added a Making Memories pearl to the doily in the upper left corner. I have about 18 LO's left to finish my wedding album! My goal is to finish by the end of the month! We'll see how far I get! Thanks for stopping by!
