LOAD514 Prep

Posted on

We are a little over one week away from the next LOAD (LayOut A Day) challenge and I thought you’d maybe like to see what I’m doing to get ready. Beyond stocking up on photo paper, toner for my printer, and mass amounts of adhesive, I’ve made some purchases recently. You know how much I try to work from my stash but sometimes a girl just needs a few new things, right? Continue reading »

Winner Winner!!

Okay, so this is about 2 weeks late! Sheesh!! So sorry! I blame Spring Break and a complete lack of structure around here!!

Yeah, that’s it. It has absolutely nothing to do with my “sieve for brains” condition!! :)

There were 11 comments on my last post so I plugged the numbers into Random.org and got ….

Practical Scrappers March Scrapping Your Stash Blog Hop

Posted on

It’s time for another blog hop with Practical Scrappers where we bust out our stash and try to use up as much as we can. You should have arrived here from Nicole Laha‘s blog but if you just stumbled upon our hop and want to start at the beginning then please start at the Practical Scrappers blog. I am the last stop on the hop this month so I thank you all for coming by! While we are not giving away a prize on the main blog, several of us are hosting smaller giveaways on our blogs so be sure to visit everyone and good luck!! I’ve got a small giveaway today too – details at the end of this post.

This month I decided to share with you how I used up an entire 6×6 paper pad to create a series of cards for a recent Craft Market.

I have quite the collection of 6×6 paper pads. I don’t know how it happened. One minute I had one or two and then next I had over a dozen! They just seem to jump into my shopping cart!! I swear! Anyway, I was determined to find a way to use them up so started playing and before I knew it I had a stack of cards in front of me.

Are You Feeling Lucky?

Posted on

I’m a bit late posting this. I blame a wicked head cold that came on suddenly Monday night! Knocked me out for a couple days. I’m still far from better but at least I feel somewhat human again!! Barring the pounding and relentless sinus headache that is.

But enough wingeing!!

I have an art journal page to share for the monthly feature over at Practical Scrappers. Seeing as Monday was St. Patrick’s Day we were inspired by the prompt “Lucky me”! We also were given the additional challenge of incorporating collaged elements into our page.

Here’s what I created.
