Crafty Tuesday

I have two measly little “cards” – technically I think they are more like gift tags – to show this week. I have spent every available “free” moment working on my project due next Monday. Between that and the plague that has descended upon our house, unfortunately crafting has been pushed very low on the priority list.

Em and I did make these little ladybug cards for her friends Kate and Chloe who both had birthdays last week. The girls were at Em’s party and have apparently become as obsessed as she has with the ladybug hunting. So we found some fun bug books for their adventures and used a bunch of my scrap paper for the ladybug tags.

BUT my sweet friends were very good to me for my birthday and I have some fun new scrap stuff to play with!

I have imposed a self restriction (since I’m a bit of a paper fiend) on buying any scrap materials.  And it really isn’t just paper either, I have drawers of embellishments and the ribbon…my heavens, the ribbon drawer is ridiculous.

Plus, not only that, but we don’t have any really great scrap stores out here. No Archivers. (Oh, how I long for thee!) No Arnies.

But leave it to my “peeps” to pull through for me. My friend Michelle gave me some very fun embellishes…

How cute is the bikini one?!

And my friend Kimmer sent me a packet with this fun included…

The sticker letters are great and those are JEWELS! Hmmm…do you think I could possibly find some sort of girly photos to include those on? And she sent some amazing paper…

You can’t see in the photo very well, but there is all kind of “bling” on these papers. The green paisley actually has glitter paisley and little jewels embedded on it. It is tied for my favorite paper. (Although I’m really into polka lots right now, too!) But the green is tied with my other favorite paper…

Yeah – brown, pink and cream. Three colors that look so yummy together! And check out the name of the paper – White Chocolate Bunnies. So appropriate.

It’s incredible how well Kimmer knows my style to be able to pick out paper that makes me so giddy, I want to run into my room and start scrapping immediately!

So stay tuned for some good stuff with my new inspirations…I’m not even going to say maybe next week, but soon! Probably very soon because I can’t wait.  How about anyone out there? Any fun stuff this week??

    I knitted dish cloths that were pink/brown/white and I want to eat them and not clean with them! I expect next week we’ll see some knitting project.

    Great cards! That is so cute that Em was able to give her friends those personalized handmade cards.

    No Archivers?? Well, at least you have friends to help you out! I have one about 3 minutes from my house, and it is very very bad. Not that I’ve scrapped much lately, but I have tons of stuff to use when I do get my butt in gear.

    I did make something last night, but I’m in the midst of vacation pictures. I’ll save what I have for next week. You will also see just how much I love my daughter…I’m making her a Dora dress for her birthday. I’m so not a fan of character clothes, but it’s her birthday. 😉

    Those ladybugs are CUTE! There is no end to your creativity. I love that the ladybug obsession has spread.

    Such great friends, and such great scrappy goodness! I have a feeling we’ll be seeing those embelishments soon in completed layouts…

    Those papers made me salivate, especially the paisley one -SO cute!! And the sticke letters are great too!! I love to scrap (now if only I would stop blogging so I could get some of mine done!) First visit to your blog – came over from Momology. See you again soon!

    You did really well didn’t you? I will look forward to seeing some of these things in place on your scrap pages soon. My scrapping has sadly died a death due to lack of time and too much stress. Sad thing is I know I’d be less stressed if I did some scrapping 🙂
