WEEK 36 of the 52 Week Scrapbooking Challenge!

This week let's put together floral paper with some striped paper and see what we get.  Have fun!!

Join this challenge anytime, it's just for fun and a great way to get those albums filled.  If you do decide to participate leave a link to your blog below in the comments section.  All are welcome.


I found this fun challenge on the Daisy Yellow website.  You play art on an index card a day for the summer.  I'm looking forward to the finished product, an index card binder full of artful inspiration.  AND IT'S A GREAT WAY TO USE UP ALL THAT STUFF.  I started this challenge on June 16th, but you can start anytime.

I didn't realize that there were prompts available until today.  I may stick to the prompts and I may not, it's just for fun, so we'll see which way the wind blows.

If you would like more information about the challenge click on the "Index Card A Day"  button on the top right of this page.

Metallics! Challenge 35...Done!

The photo just doesn't do it justice.  It looks so much more "metallicy" in person.  The camera really didn't pick that up.  Oh well, here's my finished challenge page:

Challenge #35 of the 52 Week Scrapbooking Challenge

Here is your challenge for this week:

Create a page, card, or whatever featuring METALLICS.  Meaning, use your metallic look papers or real metal embellishments.  Try to do the whole page in wonderful, beautiful metallics.  Have fun!!!

Just for fun! Another Scrapbook Page...

I don't know where the paper came from, it was in my stash.  The felt embellishments are from CTMH.  The journaling papers are from an old calendar I saved.  This was an old photo that I was overjoyed to have found.  The only one of its kind.  I made 3 black and white copies of it to add to the page to make it impact a little bit more.  It is a cherished photo that I was happy to showcase on this page. 

Finished with Challenge 33: Decorative Scissors

I never use decorative scissors, or maybe I shouldn't say that, I do use the Large and Small Deckle scissors from time to time, but the rest of them, never.   I made this page during our App & Scrap (Appetizers and Scrapbooking) Night and one of the other ladies was using them the same time I was.  And she rarely uses them also.  So it was funny to be passing them back and forth all night.  After we dusted them off of course.
Here's my page:
(I used CTMH paper in Juniper, Creme Brulee and Sorbet.
I usedCricut Cartridges Doodlecharms and Lyrical Letters)

Here's Nickel Nooks finished Decorative Scissors Challenge page!

Results for Challenge 33: Favorite Movie Quote

So many favorites to choose from.  This was a fun page to think about because there were so many possibilities for the favorite.  This was the first that came to my mind. One of the funniest movies I've ever seen.
