Just a Reminder!

Oh, spring, where are you??

Here's a little irony...my daughter's "spring break" started five days early...school canceled DUE TO SNOW!

Puh-leeze share some spring with me! Send me your new favorite spring line, a layout you've done that is spring-like in some way...anything! And I'll share it here for others who may need a spring fix like me!

Hint #2: Think Spring!

Thursday, March 17, 2011

Don't forget to mark your calenders!

As I mentioned, there is no prize up for grabs for this month's "negative space" challenge...but there IS one for the upcoming blog hop! (See right sidebar.) Want a hint?

Hint #1: it is non-consumable.

Mid-month Challenge

Mid-month seems like a nice time to toss out a quick and easy challenge. No prize this time, but just for fun, let's see how many negative space layouts we can get in the next two weeks! Get your friends to join in and let's see how many we can get. Ready, set, go!

I thought I'd share quickly what scrappiness I've been working on. Yesterday I did this layout based on a sketch. I thought these Heidi Grace papers were perfect for the colors and feel I wanted to portray in my son's baseball layout. I also took the opportunity to use a variety of alphas I had around to make a fun mixed-font title.



The other thing I did yesterday was FINALLY pull out my art journal and work on it again! (You are seeing how I have trouble keeping up with a journal, no?) The page didn't turn out at all as I envisioned...but that is okay. I accomplished what I wanted...I played with my materials and had fun. (And the page IS sort of growing on me.) I also started on another page which I'm kind of diggin'.

If anyone is interested I found some great inspiration for art journals from an amazing and inspiring artist whose career I have been watching for several years...Julie Fei-Fan Balzer. Check it out HERE.

Scrappy weekend!

I know it has been a few days since I posted here, but it hasn't been because I've been neglecting my scrapping. I attended a weekend scrapbooking fundraiser this past weekend and spent a total of 17 hours scrapping, chatting, and eating! I completed eleven pages AND I won a fantastic door prize...free admission to their next crop!

What scrappiness have YOU been up to?

I know many of you thought I was off my rocker for being so in love with the DCWV "Colorful" Stack, so I wanted to pop in real quick and share my first project with it. I hand cut the bird out of one of the sheets, and also used the background as the base for my card. Simply added a bit of ribbon and some letter stickers, did a bit of distressing, and VOILA, my daughter's birthday card!
