A Few More Cards...

I scrapped again today!

I tried to keep things simple cause I tend to get frustrated working on things cause it takes me so long to get a finished product.

Chloe's card

Congrat's card

My 'card' box...finally altered, though Ive had it for ages

My clean scrap table...I even cleaned up when I was done! Amazing!

A Bit of Scrappin

I put up a few shelves in my scrap room today. I decided to quit thinking it to death and just put them up. Once I go them up I got the urge to hang stuff from the knobs. I quickly hung a few RAK/swap items I have had for a while that are some of my favorites so I can look at them more often. Oh...the little heart on the ribbon is just left overs that were sitting here from my cards so I thought I would use them.

Here is the first card of the day...inspired by a picture in "Simply Homemade" It's going to be the V-day card for The Morlan's.

This card was inspired by one of the sketches Beth posted in SWF. It was actually a circle LO sketch, but Im not in the mood to do LOs so this is my interpretation.

Scraps Scrappin'

Today SWF had a Countdown Party. I was trying to put together a How To on this adorable cupcake I found in a Scrapbooks Etc magazine, but I didnt have the craft foam I need so I was unable to. I ended up play around with the paper I had been folding to be the bottom of the cupcake and ended up making the 'flower' like embellishment. I think it will make a nice embellishment on a scrap page with a lot of white space.

A little bit later I ended up making a book mark with even more of the scraps I had leftover. I gave myself double points for the bookmark for a few reasons, one I refused to allow myself to get up until I finished it, so I had to use exactly what I had on the table already, which wasnt much, and two because I used my word of the year "balance" on it.

I really didnt scrap much, but its more than I have scrapped so far this year so Im not beating myself up over it.

Today I finally got my word for the year "balance" altered. Now I just have to figure out where Im going to put it. For right now its sitting on top of the heater (which isnt a bad place since I dont run it and its directly across from where I sit). Although it took me a while to get them done, they are pretty simple and I like them that way :).

Oh I guess they arent completely done. I want to distress the two As, I just cant find my file right now....I REALLY need to finish moving in!

*In the B is a chipboard tag that says "2009" to finish it off.
