A Few That Scrappy Girl Cards - October Afternoon, Sassafras Lass and SRM Stickers

I've had these cards made for awhile and snapped some photos that I didn't like the coloring on. Then didn't seem to get around to taking new ones. Here they finally are. I had one more to share, but it was picked up for a magazine...yipee! These first two cards were made with the October Afternoon Fly A Kite collection. The mini alphas are also October Afternoon...I love mini alphas - they are a staple in my stash. The sentiments stickers are from SRM Stickers. The last card was made using Sassafras Lass's Apple Jack collection. The little strip under the star is from the scalloped paper age that comes on all of their papers. I am also a sucker for scalloped stuff! The October Afternoon and Sassafras Lass papers can be found at That Scrappy Girl. I hope that everyone has a great 3 day Memorial weekend!

Creative Cuts and More Blog Hop with Prizes!

Hi blog hoppers! Weren't Gerrie's projects great? If you didn't arrive here from Gerrie's blog, you don't want to miss any projects - or the chance to win some great prizes - so be sure to start at the Creative Cuts and More blog. Today we are celebrating the launch of Creative Cuts and More’s brand NEW website so the theme of our projects are Celebrate. There are a number of ways to win so be sure to keep reading!

This card is perfect to celebrate a wedding or anniversary. I ran the Scallop Wrap Cover thru my Cuttlebug using the Dotted Swiss Folder. There were holes punched in the left hand side because it is actually an album cover, so I used some gems to cover that up and add some sparkle!
A7 Card - Plum Delight Bazzill Smooth
4x4 Scallop Wrap Cover - Grape Delight Smooth
Heart #6 set - Sparkleberry Delight and Plum Delight smooth

This card is perfect to give to some to celebrate weight loss or keeping up on a healthy eating plan. This is something I really need to work on myself...maybe I'll save and give it to myself if I get back on the diet/healthy eating wagon?
Apple #01 Small - Tomato Velvet

Some Pub Items

Here are a couple cards that were in the February issue of Cards Magazine. The first card uses Scrap Within Reach's Paper Boy collection and the second card uses Basic Grey's Lemonade collection.
This felt purse was in the February/March issue of Simply Handmade. No, I still can't sew! I bought the purse and dressed it up with various scrappy items.

Some More Sassafras and SRM Sentiments

*This card will be featured in the October 2010 issue of Cards magazine*

Here is a card I made for That Scrappy Girl's blog using Sassafras Lass papers. I used the Nerdy Bird papers and stickers. The sun and cloud are stickers and the bird I cut from the patterned paper. The sentiment sticker is from SRM stickers.

Happy National Scrapbooking Day!

It's NSD and I'm not cropping :-( That's ok. I'm planning to surf the net today visiting scrap blogs, maybe create a card or two and probably just procrastinate some more on cleaning up my scrap room. I have a lot of things to share today. First is some scrappy news! I have been asked to join the design team at Momenta. They have a variety of fun stickers, jewels papers, chipboard and all kinds of goodies. In a couple weeks or so I will have some projects to share with you. They are also running a NSD special for the month of May - 20 % off any order. Just enter 20offinmay at checkout. Also be sure to follow them on Facebook and Twitter so you hear about giveaways, new products etc.

Here are a couple cards I made for That Scrappy Girl using October Afternoon's Fly A Kite Collection. Extras are Basic Grey buttons and brads and October Afternoon ABC stickers. She has a lot of new things in the store and also has a Cosmo Cricket giveaway on the blog. In honor of NSD she also has free shipping thru today if you enter the code NSD2010. I also got the chance to play with October Afternoon some more last night at a crop, so I will be back again with more projects.
Also need to share my April project for Midnight Oil Scrapbook and Designs. I used some of the Twirly Gigs Stick Ons. They were already blue so I didn't need to color them, but I cut the long tail on the long one to add a 3rd little "twirly" to my card. The Twirly Gigs are very versatile! The papers are October Afternoon's Night Light and buttons are Basic Grey.
