Blog Candy Finally

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

I had promised some blog candy in honor of my 100th post about a month ago. Well I never got around to posting it. So here it is. We'll say this is in honor of my 110th post instead. There is some additional ribbon and a circle journaling clear stamp to go with it that is not pictured. So here is a picture of the goods. Just leave a comment on this post and tell me what draws you to a blog, in other words what makes you like them and visit again. I am leaving in about 5 minutes to go to St. Louis until late Friday so I will pick a random number on Saturday morning.

Easter page

Saturday, June 21, 2008

I went to a crop on Friday night and only got one page done. That is my norm though, I usually end up just talking and Friday the talking was good! Anyway I started these Easter pages and then decided it needed this oval in the middle and I did not have the tool to make it so I had to wait until I got home to finish the page. I finished it up tonight. I used Pink Passion for my base along with Cool Caribbean and some strip paper that I don't know where it came from. I stamped the Easter title with Chocolate chip. I even used the blue rhinestones on the edges.

Red and Green

Wednesday, June 18, 2008

Here are two cards I made the other day again with watercoloring. I have gotten to where I do that on pretty much every card I make lately. Most of the stamps I am picking up to use these days just beg to be watercolored. I also recently got the Prints Pack designed series paper that is the hostess gift in the SU catalog. I wanted to use some of that but just stared blankly at it for a while. Here is what I finally came up with.

Supplies Used: Ruby Red, Wild Wasabi prints, Cameo Coral cardstock; Flower stamp and Warm Words set; Watercolor crayons and aquapainter, oval punch, green brad.

Supplies Used: Ruby Red, Wild Wasabi prints, Garden Green, Vellum and Watercolor cardstock; Basic Black ink, watercolor crayons and aquapainter, flower stamp and wonderful words set, red brads

More snow fun pages

Saturday, June 14, 2008

Here is another two-page layout from the snow day in March. This time it is for Kaitlyn's book. These are almost the same pictures. I used Vintage Violet (a retired SU color) for my base and some patterned paper from CM. The stickers and journal box are also from CM.

Snow Fun page

Friday, June 13, 2008

Here is another page I created last night. It is a 2 page layout of the snow day we had back in March. This is for Kyle's book. I used my white craft ink to ink my chipboard letters. The base cardstock is Not Quite Navy and I used the polka dot paper from an old simply scrappin' kit.

Sunshine page

I decided to get my scrapbooking out again tonight. My intention was to pick out papers and decide on some page layouts so that next Friday night when I go to a crop I can crank out some pages without having to take a ton of stuff with me. Well I just got carried away and ended up completing 5 pages tonight (after a quick emergency run to my CM consultants house for a couple of tape runners, I had completely run out of tape runner and I was on a roll, Thanks Amy). I did two 2 page spreads and then this page:

I saw a similar page in my Creating Keepsakes that I got in the mail today. It did not turn out as I had envisioned it but at least it is sorta cute and another page marked off the long to do list. This is a page of some random pictures I took one morning before church. It is for Kyle's book.

Journaling says -- You bring sunshine everywhere you go!

Bee card

Tuesday, June 3, 2008

Here is a simple bee card I made the other night. I used Summer Sun for the base and Basic Black ink for the image and word. I used my watercolor wonder crayons and the aquapainter to color the bees. I then added brads and the gingham ribbon.
