Rainy Days

Wow.  That was some rain.  It rained cats, dogs and the entire zoo!
I've always delegated rainy weather as perfect scrap weather.

I made a couple of cards in an afternoon.
I made one after the other.
Afterwards, I needed chocolate!

Be safe in this crazy weather.

Challenge #27 August

This is my take on the August sketch up at the Filipino Scrapbooker's Blog.  
I love it.  This is one of my better works.

                           I colored the stamped Magnolia image with distress inks and a watercolor brush.  I found that if you look for a small enough doily,  you can use this to frame Tilda.  And no need to purchase every spellbinder die out there.
  I used some small Bangkok paper flowers and a resin flower from All About Scrapbooking.
  Please do join the fun and make more cards this August.

Making More

Totally loving the Martha Stewart Circle Punch.  I am still waiting to purchase mine!  So I just borrowed a friend's and punched one.  Next up, I used script stamp on top and distressed it Peacock Blue.  For the stitching on top,  that is a handy stitch stamp.  I still have yet to use my stitching tool.  Argh.  I keep buying tools I hardly use.

Going through my stash,  I end up with new discoveries all the time.  I found out that I hoarded up on twinkling waters.  So here I colored all the corners with twinkling water creating a colorful border.  I am also using more of my self made mists.  Time to get the mists out of storage and finish those first.

Early Start

I woke up this morning with a desire to make lay outs.  And I managed to make three before heading out to work.  Still working with the Kaisercraft die cuts, and   hand cut some doilies.
trying to get more use out of my stamps.  The wooden fence is from All About Scrapbooking.

I didn't have blue pan pastel.  So I used watercolors to paint over the textured paste.

And for my third lay out,  I just used what was available.
I am so happy to finish my DT assignments for this year.  So now,  I am looking forward to scrapping more and posting more often.
