Creative Weekend

I actually had a productive weekend despite being pretty depressed and bummed out from the lack of sunshine and the rainy weather! I did go buy a bike so I can start riding when the weather is better. It's funny- you never forget how to ride one but you can still look like an idiot when you start again because it's been awhile, lol. Let's just say Nate will probably be riding with daddy rather than me for awhile!

On to the creations: First are the two cards using Miss Moxie SWIC paper and colors we are making at the Scrapbook Bungalow crop this coming Saturday! It took me awhile but I got em done and am pretty pleased!

Brighten my Day- uses Miss Moxie Coordinating CS and SWIC Paper, Sunburst Florals Stamp Set, and Whale of a Punch- Butterfly by EK Success (you can order it from Shannon at the bungalow!), Palette Inks in L'Amore Red, Chartreuse, Lavendar Sachet and Noir

Lovely Ladybug card (be on red CS, not blue- I just used blue for my prototype!) Uses Miss Moxie SWIC Paper, stamps from Oh How and Seeds of Friendship, Heidi Swapp Ribbon (got a lot of it from Big Lots!) and L'Amore Red, Chartreuse, and Lavendar Sachet Ink. This card will highlight the awesome scor-pal. I love it! I am not good at changing my cutter blade to a scoring blade so it makes life SO MUCH easier!

I also did another layout of Nate's Halloween pictures. This was for a challenge at hosted by Shannon. It was use to minimize and use 3 patterned papers in a layout, following Ali Edwards style. I think I did an OK job.. it was actually hard to minimize!!

The doodly designs, circle, and scalloped borders were created by using Crafter's Workshop Templates. Shannon also has these at her shop- they are amazing! To make my layout less cluttered, I did my journaling around the circle and the bottom flowered paper and button. I need to get better at taking pictures. Something to add to my lil lista for this summer!

I am also going to plan out different projects to do each week. I have all these alterables or techniques or layouts to try. I need to do them. Once school is out I will have glorious free time to create! I can't wait!

Hope everyone has a great week. I know of at least 2 meetings this week...make that three.. so I will be an especially unpleasant and unhappy person to deal with! No lie! :) Happy stamping all!
