Hello, and welcome back to Weekly Scrapper! I’m hoping today finds you all enjoying the beginning of your summer and finding time to be creative. I’m honored to have the opportunity to share the following projects with you so sit back, relax, and enjoy – it’s time to enjoy a little me creative time!
Are you looking for a creative way to use your endless supply of washi tape? Then you are going to love this oh-so-versatile technique that Tegan used to create this darling layout – you can use just about any border punch you have on hand!
Time to break out the washi tape and dust off your favorite border punches! We’re going to create some unique backgrounds, perfect for page layouts, cards, home décor projects, and so much more. Click here and I will take you over so you can see just how easily this adorable layout comes together. Happy scrapping, my crafty friends!
It was the retro sewing machine image combined with teal background and the gold accents that caught my eye on this adorable card. With I Craft Deco Foils being so popular these days, I thought you might be inspired by this sweet card designed by Karen Letchworth.
The dies and chipboard shapes used here are from the Crop Stop. Click here and I would be honored to take you over for a visit so you can check out all the must-have treasures they have for sale.
I love what Miriam did with a single balloon stamp. This is one of those cards that is perfect for mass producing. We always need birthday or celebration cards, so why not make several in different color combinations to have on hand when you need them? Just break out your yummy inks and go all ombre. What’s not to love?!
I like to leave my options open so I don’t even add the sentiment until I know what the occasion is, then all I have to do is stamp a sentiment and if I have time, add a few simple embellishments and then no one knows I had a brain fade and almost missed their special day. 😉 There is nothing like having a nice stash of pre-designed cards at hand for when you (oops) forgot someone’s birthday! It’s nothing that one of your handmade cards can’t get you out of, right?
How cute would this altered clock look in your craft room? I love it when you can take a plain, inexpensive item and turn it into a work of art. Thanks for sharing, Diana, you truly are an inspiration to your fellow paper crafters.
Diana used the Ken Oliver Cut and Color collection along with his amazing Colorburst to get this whimsical butterfly background. The Cut & Color Collection is perfect for those that share my love of coloring and die cutting. You start with a stamp which you can die cut and then color! Beautiful!
If you’ve had one of those weekend splurges, not to worry, Monday is a new day and thanks to Linda we can whip up this delicious Garlic Shrimp recipe in no time. And did I mention the shrimp is only two Weight Watcher points?
Add a simple salad and/or your favorite veggies and you’re a happy camper that’s back on track. Bon appetit!
Thanks for stopping in! Have a wonderful week and I’ll see you next Sunday with some more great projects. Summer means that Stamp & Scrapbook Expo is on the move and we have great things planned for you. Click here and I will take you over to our website so you can start planning an amazing weekend with some of your fellow paper crafters. I’ll meet you at the Creativity Center!
