All That Scraps April Preview Day 2

Please click HERE for the Perfect Paper Crafting and Faber-Castell Blog Hop.

Hello!  All That Scraps is previewing Lil Lads and Lolitas, Mashi and Drozy's Darlings stamps today.  We're continuing with the love and marriage theme.

My card features Bride Lilith and the sentiment is from Wedding Labels.  I wanted to give her dress an antique-y look.  Have you seen that show, Something Borrowed, Something New where a bride has to decide between a new wedding dress or a remade dress passed down from her grand/mother?  It's such a neat show to see how the designer can rethink that old dress into something new.  I don't know if my daughter would want to wear my old wedding dress.  I'd probably want her to get something a bit more modern.  The dresses these days seem so much nicer!  And more expensive too.

Please head over to the All That Scraps blog to see more of the preview!  We'll be back tomorrow for a Sweet November preview.

Thanks for stopping by!


Gorgeous. You did such a gorgeous job of coloring her up.

Pretty card! Love the antique-y vibe with the doily, ribbon and embellies, and of course your coloring!

Sorry to comment here. I came by for the Perfect Paper and Faber-Castell Blog Hop but you do not have a comment link on that post. Hopefully, you can update your page to fix that, but just in case I wanted to let you know how beautiful and elegant your first two samples were and how cute and fun your early Halloween card was.

I agree with Jean. I apologize for commenting here, but you didn't leave a link for comments on your post for the Perfect Paper and Faber-Castell Blog Hop. I hope you get it fixed soon, and I hope our posts here still count. I truly like how you created your cards using the tools. They're beautiful!

What a fab doily works perfect here with this great image. I agree, the dresses seem so much nicer now that when I got married 25 years ago!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

If you've read the story, yo…

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

Thanks for reading!

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them.

I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand?

This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful.

I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet.  And th…
