MAA DT work and a card
I made some time to create a bit today and photograph a project I finished several days ago. It feels great to just veg and scrap. I caught up on most things and even went grocery shopping, something I haven't done for a few weeks.
Most of these projects are for My Acrylic Album.
The butterfly is #2 of 3 and was created with the awesome butterfly album. Once again I used the yummy papers from October Afternoon that Ashlyn selected. I placed the blue pp on the bottom-side of the album and then cut the paper on top a bit smaller, folded and curled the edges and left sticking up a bit for dimension.
I hope to work on the 3rd butterfly tomorrow and maybe I'll even be able to finish it. :) Then I have another cute album to get to. I have an idea, I just need the time.
Skye made cupcakes this afternoon and that gave me an idea. I have been itching to use these cute Penguin Pants buzzy-bugz stamps that were included in my goodie box from My Acrylic Album so I whipped up these cute little cupcake decorations. I just stamped the image with black ink, cut around the image and then added some color and glitter to the wings. It was super easy and the girls really like having them atop their treats. :)
You can purchase several sets of the Penguin Pants stamps on My Acrylic Album. Cute stuff I tell ya!
Another goodie in our box from MAA was a set of these very cool Ribbon Rings. (yes, we were spoiled!) I have to admit that I was skeptical about trying this. I rather like my system of digging through my ribbon mess, but this is actually pretty cool. I put my longest strands on this and it's really easy to see them and get to them. This system is perfect if you are short on space because you can just hang them on your walls or even on a door. I am going to be getting some more of these for sure! :)
Last but not least is my card for the Di Hickman July #2 card sketch. I decided to create a baby boy card with some scraps of OA. It was a fun sketch!
I just want to thank everyone for all their support and thoughts and prayers for my dh and our family. It's amazing how one can feel so much love from people they have never met. Yall are the BEST! :)
