Card Stash

When I haven't been crafting for a while it takes a bit to get back in the creative mindset.  So I usually start out with cards.  Small projects that use different techniques and get me going again.  And I add to my card stash.

Time to use some of the stencils that I recently purchased.  Blending colours combined with layering the word die to create a chipboard effect




Love this technique by Jennifer McGuire using acrylic blocks to stamp watercolour effects




 Love the ideas that Jennifer McGuire shares.  This one is a swipe technique with stamping




This last one is from a Scrapbook.com class by young scrapbooker Simon Hurley Step by Step Cardmaking Techniques

Story Stamps - Fun

More Story Stamp layouts to share.  I subscribe to Ali Edwards Story Stamps.  This theme is Fun.  From So Fun to No Fun it was great to get crafty again after quite a break and tell some stories.  I have been doing more A4 layouts and using bigger pictures which I have enjoyed.

Winner of NSD Mixed Media challenge at Scrapbook.com

The fun and motivation to get scrapping alone is worth joining in.  Winning a prize icing on the cake.  I actually had lots of fun getting messy and created a few different layouts.  This one won a $100 prize pack of mixed media goodies and $25 to spend at Scrapbook.com.  Looking forward to playing with more products


{Inter} National Scrapbooking Day

So glad that I was able to get involved again this year.  Gets me motivated to get scrapping again.  Along with several Story Stamp layouts I completed these cards and layouts for the various challenges.










Story Stamps - Numbers

Slowly catching up on my Story Stamps. I subscribe to Ali Edwards Story Stamps.  This theme is Numbers.  Lots of possibilities.  I used my ideas I had pinned on Pinterest to get layout designs.







Story Stamps - Old & New

Slowly catching up on my Story Stamps. I subscribe to Ali Edwards Story Stamps.  This theme is Old And New.  Love the possibilities for telling stories about my boys.  They change so quickly.  Good to get the stories told.  






The theme lent itself really well to the stories of the renovations we have been doing to the house over the years.  Incentive for getting this album together.

{Inter}National Scrapbooking Day


This time last year I was getting back into my teaching.  I managed to do a little scrapping for {Inter}National Scrapbooking Day.  My crafting time since has been few and far between as I have got back into working so I love the opportunity to get back into things with the inspiration from the challenges on the day.





National Scrapbooking Day is right around the corner.  Mark your calendar for May 6th—join us for fun challenges, prizes, freebies and a day of crafting! #scnsd17 #studiocalico  #scrapbooking:
