Welcome to my World

Welcome to my little corner of the vast God planned domain. I plan to share mostly my card projects here, you might even possible see some scrapping, quilt projects, and photography. Who knows I may even try other other craft projects. I am also going to share a selection of little recipe cards I have collected over the past few years - scrapped, of course. There may even be some little things of greatness of my daily life. Every now and then, I might even vent!

Very Productive Saturday

Yesterday was my once a month gathering with the scrapbook gals with our Creative Memories consultant fried. This card was one for a punchart challenge. I did not want to do the ordinary punchart so I decided to do a multi-layered card using lot of scraps and a variety of border punches. Added a little sentiment line from Heart from the Heart SU stamp set. Love this set, is so grat most any occassion.
Another swap card that needed to used the SCS204 layout. Also used a lot of little scraps and came up with this. Added a brown silk bow and the Season of Joy stamp set.
The third swap I did yesterday was a 3 dimensional challenge. I used Specialty packaged buttons, removed the shanks and used glue dot to attach. Add a polka dot red silk ribbon. Most of my swap cards right now are with a Christmas theme. Love this time of the year.
The last article I completed were these box. I know the picture is not great but did not want to take the binder off of them at this time as there are 24 total. I made 12 yesterday. They are really easy and quick. The are individually wrapped with a 2x12 piece of DP that has Christmas wordson it. Then the top was covered with another DP that coordinated. Put together with a brad a felt leaf set and some poinsettias petals. They will then be filled with candy and nuts for all of my office mates. $ sets of boxes worked out great as there are 25 in our office and so I made 24.

Also made a set of 8 cards like the photo card below for a girl at work that ordered them once she saw the sample. Going to make another set or two of these for Christmas gifts. Will be my way of giving souveniers from our Summer Vacation.

After I got home I watched the Gonzaga Bulldogs beat Mississippi Valley in the season opener. GO BULLDOGS!! Tomorrow I plan to complete my Yahoo owned group swaps for the year so they will just have to be put in the mail when due. Watch for another post tomorrow.

Thanks for looking.
