Scrapper's Stress

Today Im starting to feel a bit of scrappers stress! I have a tone of things I need to be working on for SWF, but since I just got back from TX Im so exhausted its hard to make myself work hard.

Here is a list of what I can think of off the top of my head I should be doing.

-Updating SSS spreadsheet
-Returning emails
-CJ emails (with deadlines)
-Double checking SWF party time line
-Finishing party projects

Yikes...and tomorrow I get to go to Shemaine's for another scrap date so I gotta get ready for that to in the time I need to be party planning. Good thing though, I will be needing the break! lol

More New Cards

Since I dont have access to my photo printer I have been working on cards or projects when I want to scrap. This is really a good thing because it adds more cards to my card box and gives me a few choices when I need a card 'right now'.

Here are the 2 cards I made last night.

This one is a technique that will be showcased in SWF before too long.

This one is just because I saw a similar card at Target and I liked it a lot. The inside is blank cause there are a few options it can be used for.
Today we are having a QPMU (scrap day) in SWF so I will be scrapping again. Im going to try to work on my circle journal or my circle album that I have to get out ASAP

My Scrapping for the Day

I scrapped around Kayla today, some during nap time and some after she left. I got a few more things finished up.

I made this card...for no reason. I just felt like doing one. I used my new CTMH stamps and a tutorial from splitcoaststampers. The head on the lion is supposed to tilt but it doesnt so much. Still cute anyway I think.

I also made this little book from scraps of paper left over from my giant clothes pin. I like how it came out. Im trying to decide what to do with it, use it as a prize for the SWF party or not.

The last thing I made before I had to clean up my huge mess was a keychain/embellishment. I saw this in a magazine and wanted to try it. I think it will be cute if I laminate it...but again, what to do with it??

New Projects

Last night I worked on some new projects while watching a National Treasure Book of Secrets (pretty good movie) with Brandon and Kim.

I got to finish my giant clothes pin...I had to wait for the mod podge to dry. Here's what it ended up looking like.

I enjoyed making this so much I was bummed that the scrap store didnt have anymore...I kinda want to keep it for myself lol. But I know since I do want it that whomever wins it will like it :) If you look closely at the bottom you can see that there is a small hole so it can be hung up or sat on a table. IF I really do get my scrap room when I get home I plan to have one of these in it...

I also finished a 6x6 album that is going to be a party project, and a gift. Here's the front and one of the inside pages. Its tough to make things without adding pictures!

Now I just have to figure out which game/thread I want them to be prizes for.

CTMH Order

I got my CTMH order today I was so excited! This was my first order so I didnt know exactly what to expect. I ripped it open and looked at all my stamps, cause of course I didnt have my scrap with my stuff so I was only able to look.

Here is my loot!

I cant wait to get to play with it!
Im going to another of Shemaine's workshops on the 11th...I have to keep myself from ordering anything this time though. Bummer!
