A whole LOT to post!

Hi everyone!  First of all, if you're following along on the the Pass the Page Blog Hop go HERE.  And wow, I actually have a lot of projects to post so I'm just going to jump in...

First off, here's a layout I created for Bird is the Word and Let's Capture These Sketches.  The word at Bird is the Word is "remember" and it's sketch #116 at Let's Capture These Sketches.
The picture is of Gavin back in 2008.  I came across this and thought, how could I have not scrapboooked this  immediately?! Well it's because Gavin's baby sister arrived that year and I was into more girly layouts at the time :)  Now I'm pretty good about mixing it up between boy and girl layouts. Everything on here is from January's Cocoa Daisy kit.

Next up is a card... yes a card that took me longer to make than the layout above AND I enjoyed every minute of making the dang thing!  I think I have to stop saying I'm not a card maker.  This card is based on January's card sketch at My Sketch World and it's also for City Crafters Challenge Blog challenge to make it pretty on the inside and the out.  Here's the outside...
And here's the inside...
Don't you LOVE the stamped image on the front of the card?  I just found this stamp at the LSS, it's by La-La Land Crafts.  I actually bought 2 of their stamps and after visiting their web site I  think I'm going to need many more.

Okay up next are actually more cards.  I said in a previous post that I had a 6 card goal for this year (sounds ridiculous to some of you I know, but I typically don't like making cards but I like having handmade cards on hand) anyway I've already met that goal. Woohoo!  For whatever reason I've felt like making cards lately.  So here are the 4 Valentines Day cards I made out of Jillibean Soups Hearty Barley line.

Very clean and simple.  I think I've finally learned that I enjoy card making much more if I keep them simple and I also seem to like the final product much more as well.

And lastly I made a Valentines Day wreath out of my husbands old white t-shirts!  I knew I wanted to use fabric strips around the wreath but I don't have a lot of fabric laying around and didn't want to go buy any so I improvised.

I cut the shirts into strips, misted them, tied them around a foam wreath, wrapped it with twine and different ribbons, hot glued a bunch of little  hearts on it (hard to see in the pictures I took)  added a $1 frame from Michael's, a beautiful flower from THIS Etsy shop and some black tulle for the bow.

Like I said, lots to share. :)

Don't forget about the challenges going on at Scrapbookers Anonymous this month.  We have a masking challenge and a challenge to use items that start with the letter F.  You have until 9pm January 31st to submit projects for either challenge.

Happy scrappin'!!!

Lizzy Hill said...

Agreeing with all the above, especially looooove the valentine day cards - great colours & you're so right about the simplicity. Stunning! So is that wreath. Brilliant idea:):)

Oh my! You have been so productive! These are amazing girl! Lovelovelove the t-shirt wreath! W00t on the upcycling! :)

Debbie P said...

Lea, you have made some beautiful creations! Love the little boy layout. He is so adorable! And I love that it's not your typical blues, and it works for a boy. Your cards are so cute. I love the stamped little super hero girl. That's adorable. I don't make many cards because frankly, most of the people I send cards to don't appreciate them. And lastly, the wreath is so pretty. Very creative. You should join in at C.S.I. I like stretching my color muscles...I usually don't start a layout that way, and it really makes me think and work for it.

Sue Althouse said...

Wow, that is some major craftiness going on! Love all your projects, especially the owl card!

This is fantastic idea!
Thank you so much for your visit and sweet comments about my work, best regards!

Roxy said...

For some reason I thought I'd commented on this post, but I guess I didn't! I know I read it, though, hahaha! Gorgeous layout, and I love all your cards, they are awesome!!! Funny how we get comfortable doing one or the other, scrapping or cardmaking, and just feel kinda weird doing the other. I know so many card makers who just don't scrapbook, they say they can't! Anyway, your wreath is so clever, I would never think of doing that - it looks wonderful, nice job!!!
