ATSDT#24 AND AMYRS#34: Swell Noel!

So glad to finally catch up on the challenges! It has been a busy week. A lot of drama at work but nothing I can share (not that it would really apply to anyone but me anyway!). Halloween went off without a hitch. Of course, we did not go trick or treating as a) Nate doesn't get it and b) no candy for him. By his lack of sleeping last night, you'd never know he did NOT have a sugar high! He barely slept and was off the wall. It was insane. Anyway, I also completed 4 more projects for the TAC design call, bringing the grand total to 15! I am proud of myself. I started out planning projects that would be impressive but settled on doing what I was inspired to do with the paper and stamps I felt pulled to. I didn't do any project because I "had" to- I did them because I wanted to!
But on to the good stuff:
First, Amy R's Sketch Challenge #34

I loved this sketch! And perfect enough, I saw the new K and Company Christmas papers at AC Moore today! I have been dying to get my hands on Swell Noel. Gorgeous Paper. Unfortunately, they didn't have the 12x12 paper packs. But, I did get a mat pack. It worked well to make this card:
AMYRS#34: Mod Winter

Paper: K&Co. Swell Noel, Bazzill pink, TAC U/S white; Ink: Palette Noir; Stamps: Wintertime Fun from CC Designs; Coloring Medium: Prismacolor Markers; Die Cuts: Nestabilities Scalloped Rectangles; Other: White die cut shimmer flowers, white small eyelets, pink brad.
This is not the best pic, but it's hard to take pics at night :) I don't get the good sunlight!
Next, ATSDT#24:
Swell Olivia Mini Pizza Box

This challenge was to make a mini pizza box. I had not made one yet and I have to say, they're very easy which is great! I am not a stickler for folding and cutting and gluing into boxes, etc. I can see making these as treat boxes, card holders.. all kinds of things! Anyway, Olivia came out to play. I finally ordered the Sugarplums Christmas scene stamps and should be getting those by next Friday (along with the Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper I put off buying last year...) so Olivia will have a Christmas scene to go with her Christmas pajamas!

Paper: K&Co Swell Noel, Bazzill Pink; Ink: Palette Noir, Versamark; Stamps: Sugarplums Christmas Olivia by CC Designs; Color Medium: Prismacolor markers; Die Cuts: Nestabilities scalloped square and circles; Other: Gold Embossing Powder and white ribbon.

I hope you enjoy these- I had so much fun creating them (After cleaning up my craft area... it was a paper explosion!) I hope to create more to share tomorrow!!
