Midweek Projects

So, I've been having some fun over at Treasured Scrapbooking, participating in some of their challenges this month. It's been so fun meeting new girls and seeing old familiar faces. You should definitely come check it out!!

This was for a challenge to use embossing on a fall card. I don't have a cuttlebug, so I just used my scorpal to make some embossed lines for the card background. I made that flower from some ruffled ribbon that I just twisted around.



This layout is for a challenge to use fall colors and a tree on your layout. I've had this Basic Grey Ambrosia paper forever and finally i'm putting it to good use. And look at that cute Bo Bunny owl stamp!



And finally a challenge to made a gift card holder. I used the Cash or Charge template from Papertrey Ink. I love the blue with the softer holiday colors. This opens up and there is a slot to put the gift card. Too fun!!


I've been having fun crafting this week, i'm sneaking in some time here and there. Hope you are all having a great week. Thanks for stopping by!!
