What else is new?? I just keep forgeting to update my blog to share all of my work, so I'm going to do it all here in one post
Here's my design for The Cuttlebug Spot-- we are celebrating the 4th of July this week there-- don't forget you have to use your Cuttlebug on the project! Make sure to stop my and check out all of my DT sisters fabulous inspiration, plus there have been wonderful inspiration in the entries already that you won't want to miss out on checking out!
Here is my design for Practical Scrappers weekly challenge. The weekly challenge there is to use decorative scissors or border punches (or both). I used my "Victorian" style decorative edge scissors to create the photo corners. I also used my MS Double Loop border/corner punch combo set to create the edging on the background paper. Then for some fun, I cut 5 strips of 1 1/2 inch x 7inch paper and used her double loop border punch down each side. I folded the strips in half and added some ribbon and buttons to create the large flower.
Don't forget we have a design team call going on at Practical Scrappers and this weeks challenge will be the last opportunity to join in on one of our challenges before the July 5th deadline. If you've ever considered trying a join a DT, this is a great opportunity and a great way to be practical with the supplies you already have on hand!
Last we have a monthly bonus challenge going on at Practical Scrappers that "yours truly" is the hostess of these fun and unique challenges. I like being known for using items in a way that they aren't meant to be which is partly how this monthly challenge came to be. Christine, our fearsome Practical Leader--love you boss (;, approached me with the idea for it back in April and we've been rolling with for the past two months. I think we've been getting some great entries, and cannot wait to see what everyone does with this month's theme called, "Just Beachy". Pull out those items that you would find at the beach or would take to the beach and use them on your project.
I used some decorative sand and shells that I had sitting around in vase on this LO.
Thanks for stopping in and I hope you all have a scrappy day!
