Here are a few items I worked on today. The tubing pics are from our excursion yesterday out of the lake. The "Good Times" layout was a take on Sketch #61 at Creative Scrappers (see my blog roll). The rest of the items were done for the crop that was held at Life Preservers Scrapbook Club this past weekend. I found the tutorial for the little flower on the first card here: This is one crafty gal. The others were from Make & Takes that Sandra posted over at LP this weekend. There were MANY more challenges and make and takes, but these were the ones that I far anyway!! All the ribbons on these pages were from the July Kits over at Savvy N' Sassy ( Isn't that some fabulous BIG ric rac??!! LOVE IT!! ....lots more to come ...but I HAVE to go and clean off my desk. It's attrocious!!!

Well, here are some fun little goodies I created with the SnS July Ribbon Kit "Spoiled Rotten". Scroll down and you can see it on the side bar to the right - it's the bright pink and black one .
For the "Capturing this moment" layout, which was also a take on Dalis' monthly challenge at SnS (see below), I also used some of the MME papers from the Andrea Victoria line!! ( soooo elegant.
The little flowered green papers on the cards were from a new line of papers that I discovered from a Canadian manufacturer - Black River Designs ( Picked these up from Kate at Got Scraps in Revelstoke - so fun!! They are double-sided and a really nice weight to work with.
My little "Scrap Fund" container uses the same line of papers too - with the ribbon coming from the SnS kit. I am going to put this on my dryer to collect any loose change that might just be discovered in Wayne's pockets!! :)
On my "Remeber This Moment" layout of Melissas first "quading" experience, I made the little flowers out of coffee filters and then painted them with Shimmerz ( product is sooo much fun..I can definitely see myself using more of it in the future.
The 3 card set with the Owls and Trees are using more of the Black River Designs paper and the stamps are from Cornish Heritage cute are they??! Watch for more designs to come as I bought a BUNCH of these from Amanda at Ever After Scrapbooking in Kelowna.
I also splurged and bought a new Thomas Kinkade stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms. It was actually Amanda's demo and she was kind enough to part with it!! (*snicker). Isn't it beautiful??! I just love it with the flowersoft product. Soooo pretty. Even just simply coloring it with a few copic markers made a pretty card. I definitely need more colors though. The image that is really soft looking is actually covered with a layer of glitter. It is sooo hard to tell in the picture - but it sure looks pretty in real like. The lacey ribbon really look much nicer too - somehow the pictures just don't turn out as nice! :(
Anyway - there will be lots more to come - I'm just getting started!! Thank you for looking!! :)
