A Card For A Friend

I made a birthday card for one of my closest friends.  She doesn't read this blog so I have no fear posting it already!  I just really like it.  We both love cats so I think is puurrrrrfect.  Sorry for the bad play on words.  I couldn't resist!  I also used a lot of pieces from the Paper Pumpkin kits that I'm still digging through...

Just Pushing Through

Still trying to get through some scrap papers before the haul out.  I'm also trying to get through some photos that I haven't ever gotten around to scrapping that really just need to get done.  I made this page to do both those things and I'm loving how it turned out!

Finding A New Challenge Blog Is Like Finding A New Friend

I found a new challenge blog yesterday that I really liked and look forward to participating in in the future.  This month's challenge on 123 Challenge was to use black and white, the word 'perfect', and stamps.  I decided to not add anymore text to the page because I've always been drawn to one word pages that don't distract from the photo.  I stamped hearts that I then cut out and embellished which ended up giving me more difficulty than anything else because my black inks were all drying up or else in the case of one them, exploding and leaking everywhere.  Otherwise it was a really quick page to make and I really like the way it turned out.

Too Many Kit Pieces

I like getting Paper Pumpkin kits mostly so that I can use the pieces in them for other projects than the ones they were intended for.  That being said though, as I'm preparing to move out of my apartment, I'm realizing how many kits I never even opened while school took over my life.  With that in mind I've decided to try and use as many of them and as much scrap paper as I can to help pair down my stash before I'm out of here.  I made a really quick birthday card to start off the marathon.

Quick Time

I found a card in my crafting room that I for some reason had stuck a sticker that said "Happy Birthday".  I have no idea what my original intentions were for this card, but I went ahead and completed it anyways.  I made it so ridiculously simple that it only took me about 10 minutes to assemble.  It's nice to know that if I ever need to quickly make a birthday card, I can.  I'm prepared for my inevitable future procrastination of birthday card making.

Leaf Love

On Black Friday the Brauer girls went to a massive scrapbooking store and I found some metallic markers on sale.  I made this super simple thank you card as an excuse to play with them.  I also got to use another one of the stamp sets my mom dropped off for me!  Coloring is one of my favorite things.  I stayed in the lines pretty well!

Non-Traditional Minimalist Holiday Card

I tried again to get rid of left over things from Paper Pumpkin kits.  I decided to try and make holiday cards that are a little funky and unexpected for the season, but also so easy that someone could theoretically make a lot of them since "a lot" seems to be the average number of holiday cards needed during the season.  I came up with a shiny little card that I think is not only easy but something pretty decent to look at!
