Sunday Scrappin' #11

JULIE: Don't read this post, it shows your birthday card! LOL! :)

Sunday Scrappin’ TA-DA's: Well, I was going to hold off on posting until later tonight, but we'll just go with what I have done so far. ;) I have pieces/parts laid out on my craft table for the glitter card swap I'm in, but I've hit a wall creative-wise, and will have to come back and work on those some more tommorow.

I made a quick card (shown at left) for my sister's 30th birthday, using "card candy" that I was given by an anonymous elf (the stamped greeting & candles). If you'd like more details on the card & materials used, please see this card as posted in my Splitcoast gallery.

I've also been working on DD's preschool scrapbook. Mostly what I've gotten done is putting her artwork onto pages. A lot of times it takes up nearly the whole 12x12" page, so there's not much room for embellishments or journaling. I'll have to take pics of some of those pages to share with you next week.

TO-DO's: I've got to get the glitter cards done and in the mail this week. I'm also setting a challenge to myself to complete at least one card challege this week, either from Splitcoast Stampers or elsewhere. (Stampin' When I Can is a great place to find challenges, some with prizes!) And, I'll keep working on DD's scrapbook.

THIS WEEK'S BONUS QUESTION: Do you sketch your ideas or do you just put things together as you go? I rarely sketch anything out on paper- I usually just kind of play around with things until I come up with a layout that I like.

If you do any sort of paper crafts, not just scrapbooking, I hope you'll join us over at Sunday Scrappin'!


  1. I like that card its really cute. I keep wanting to get out my rubber stamps today, reading all these posts about stamp challenges, etc.

  2. No scrapping this weekend. :-( If you have a look at my blog you'll see why, we had a horrible weekend.

    BTW, do your kids have any special issues from being preemies? My DS is not a preemie but due to being on ECMO he has several issues that show from time to time.

    God bless!

  3. Great card! What a creative idea with the candles. I like it!

  4. Beautiful work! I love that card. I didn't have time to do anything this weekend, but I'm sure enjoying visiting everyone else's pages.

  5. Hope your sister didn't peek at her card. :) Good luck with your goals this week.

    Did I tell you how much I enjoy Sunday Scrappin'?? :) It is some very fun motivation for me. I love seeing what things everyone else is working on.

    Have a great week. :)

  6. Very, very cute birthday card! I can't wait to see your DD's preschool pages. :) I love looking at little ones artwork.

  7. Cute Birthday card. Are those real candles?
    Would love to see how you managed to put the art work in a scrapbook. My kiddos is all sitting in boxes.

  8. That card with the candles is so cute!! I love it!! I'm sure lovin' the SCS challenges......I'm not up to everyday.....but if I can do a couple or so a week it really helps me get out of my little box!! Your dd's scrapbook sounds like a wonderful project!
