More cards

Good Afternoon!

I've been working on using up some paper scraps.  I started over the weekend, using 6x6 and 8x8 one sheet wonders.  I had cut out pieces to make several cards and had finished glueing them together.  Not thinking about the finishing touches, I took pictures of the cards I made.

As I was putting the pictures on my computer, I realized that I hadn't embellished them like I usually do.  The differences between the two when you compare them is amazing, I think.

The top card was embellished with stickles and the birdbath card I added stickles and liquid pearls.

I also made the following cards today, roughly following the Mojo Monday sketch from this week...

Mojo Monday #477

Good Morning!

It's contest week over at Mojo Monday!  This sketch is close to the sketch over at Viva la Verve Sketches last month, so I used the same paper I used for that card.

Like most of the cards I make, I used a pocket for the inside...

One Sheet Wonders

Happy Saturday,

I pulled out the layout for the One Sheet Wonders I found on Joyfully Made Designs awhile ago.  I was down to mostly scraps from my favorite Heartfelt Creations paper Raindrops on Roses.  While I didn't cut a 8x8 or 6x6 piece of paper, I did use the layouts & ideas to use up a bunch of my scraps.

(A close up of two of the above cards)

While this is a great way to use up scraps, I really need to do this about halfway through the papers.  When I wait till almost every full page is used, I don't have enough to do background sheets.  I'm not a fan of plain backgrounds, but I think some of them worked out that way.

Have a great weekend!

Viva la Verve, November sketch 2

Good Morning again!

I also played along with Viva la Verve sketches today.  I really wasn't sure I would be happy with any cards made with this sketch, but I was very pleasantly surprised!  This sketch turned into a lot of fun, except when I finished the card and realized that I forgot the ribbon that was sitting on my table.  :)

Good Morning!

Since I'm fairly limited yet on what I can do, I played a lot in my craft room yesterday and today.  Yesterday I played along with Tuesday Morning Sketches.
