SIP Challenge 66 – Anything But a Card!

What a lovely rainy, drizzly, overcast day we had here yesterday! I overslept, got up at 9:00! Made it to the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store by 10:05! Renee and I both had very productive days! I got a lot of work done and managed to get a few projects finished too! After I came home and had some dinner I saw Taylor for a bit and then went over to Brian and Kim’s too meet up with Heather for a little early Thirsty Thursday! We had a nice chat and got caught up! Today I want to get some more projects finished at the Store and maybe even get my calendar finished! Yay! Before I get to today’s post though our friend Linda from Chicago accused me of being organized! LOL! Well, here is a picture of the fine tuned organization that I use for my cards…


There are many more piles just like that! Filed away… I think not! 😛

Today I’m over on the Stamp, Ink, Paper blog for this week’s Anything But a Card challenge…


Being around all of that scrapbooking with Renee makes me feel the need to do a layout every once in a while! My page background is a piece of paper from The Authentique Fabulous 12×12 Line and it’s mounted to a piece of Black 110lb. The photo of Maggie and I was taken in January 2015 in Disney. I mounted it to a piece of Crisp Green and then to piece of Rose Chintz. To the left of the picture is a piece of Black 110lb that I cut out with the Bo Bunny Picture This Die that I borrowed from Angie! The strips across the top and down the left are more Crisp Green with a flower from the Altenew Golden Garden Photopolymer Stamp Set stamped in Hero Arts Intense Black. My flowers are from the same set and are also stamped in Intense Black onto Arches 140lb Watercolor Card. I used my Mijello Mission Gold Watercolors to color them and the Coordinating Dies to cut them out. They are adhered to the page with 3D Foam Squares. Finally I needed the perfect greeting (or journaling in this case) and I found it in the Altenew Painted Inspiration Photopolymer Stamp Set. I really love that Golden Garden Set with the sketchy flowers and the Painted Inspirations Set for the lovely greetings! I hope that you enjoyed my Design Team project for this week’s Stamp, Ink, Paper Anything But a Card Challenge!

Fab Friday 92

Oh yes it’s Friday! We had a great time in the Ink Blended Backgrounds class at the Stamp, Ink, Paper Store yesterday! Everyone left with two fun cards and the confidence to create their own ink blended backgrounds! Renee and I continued to work on laying out the stores better. We are going to be making some major changes today, can’t wait to get that done! It was Thirsty Thursday last night and we had it at Stephanie’s house for a change! Loads of fun just like always! I really do have some incredible friends!

Today I have my project for the Fab Friday challenge! This time it’s colors…

When I was at the store on Wednesday I had started working on a project to give to my brother and sister-in-law for a gift. It’s not what you would expect from me! I have to branch out every so often! The base for today’s Scrapbook Page is My Colors 12×12 Textured White. I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Altenew Beautiful Day Photopolymer Stamp Set in Blush, Rouge, Crimson and Velvet for the flowers and Frayed Leaf, Frosted Glades and Evergreen for the leaves. They are all cut out with the Coordinating Dies. I arranged the picture and stamped images on the page and then stamped some other images from the same set in Jet Black. When I was happy with the placement I adhered the flowers and leaves to the page with E-Z Runner and Foam Tape. My greeting is from the Altenew Painted Inspiration Photopolymer Stamp Set and is also stamped in Jet Back. Just to give the layout a little more interest I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear, Lime Sorbet and Raspberry Sequins. I loved that picture so much I had to do something special with it and I thought that greeting was so perfect for the picture! I hope that you like my Design Team Scrapbook Page for the Fab Friday Color Challenge! Be sure and go over to the BLOG and see the rest of the Design Team’s projects and add yours to the gallery! Thank you so much for visiting with me! Have a fabulous Friday! 🙂
