some scrappy projects
I have been creating a bit off an on. Here's what I have been up to. :) The calendar project is my first "assignment" as a CT member for Heart in Hand Scraps. The original class is by the amazingly talented Linda Albrecht and can be purchased and downloaded here. The instructions are clear and easy to follow and you can adapt to what you have on hand as I did. Why take a class at a scrappy store using what they supply, when you can take a class in the comfort of your own home, whenever you want to and with whatever you like? This was so fun to make and I am going to make several more. While you are there, be sure to take a look at the other fun classes by all the other crazy talented designers. :)
The pretty orange-ish layout was created for this weeks Weekly Design Team Inspiration over at CMK. This weeks inspiration is to highlight key words in your journaling by using a different color, font, boxing those words in, etc...
I did some simple journaling using some die cuts and I placed them so that even without the "filler" journaling, the message would still be clear. It didn't turn out as journal-y as I had hoped, but I was sick and just getting it done was an accomplishment. lol!
If you look closely at the "got leaves" layout, you'll see Skylar's head poking out from the leaf pile. heehee. They had a lot of fun in that huge pile!
The card is a Di Hickman Card Sketch December #1.
I finished my Christmas shopping for the kiddos last night. What a relief! Now I can focus on everything else, like maybe getting some Christmas cards out.
