Half Year

We’re halfway through 2011, more or less, and my P52 Cards is still going strong. Here’s the past few weeks’ worth of photos.

P52 Cards - Week 24

You can see the Week 24 card here.

P52 Cards - Week 25

Sorry for the weird colors on this picture. :/ You can see the Week 25 card here.

P52 Cards - Week 26

You can see the Week 26 card here.

As you can see from the location of the past few pictures, we’ve been spending some time on the deck. 🙂 It’s a good summer!

My stash of cards is almost depleted! 🙂 I have to get back making more. I do have one almost done for this week, though, so I’m good. 😉

Almost There

I’m excited for the weekend to get here, or actually even just Friday, because I have quite a few pages to share with new releases. 😉 In the meantime, here are the past couple of weeks for my Project 52 Cards. Two weeks ago DH and I celebrated our wedding anniversary:

P52 Cards - Week 22

Last week I gave him the latest card I’d made. It’s actually a postcard and not a card (meaning that it doesn’t open up) because I used a scrap of paper to print it out, and I quite like this format! DH said he liked it to (that’s a first!), so I might be doing more.

P52 Cards - Week 23

I have a TON of pages to share tomorrow, so make sure you stop by! 😉

iNSD and Other Designer News

With all the excitement for my mother’s visit, I forgot to post last week’s Project 52 Cards picture:

P52 Cards - Week 18

You can see the Week 18 card here.

This isn’t the best time of the year to have your mom come visit, with iNSD and all the fun activities in the digital scrapbooking world… Of course I am delighted that my mom is here and don’t regret a thing, so I’ll have to sit out on all of the digi fun and catch up later. It has only been 6 days since I made the last few cards (one is in the post below, and watch out for the other two in the next couple of days 😉 ), but I am itching to create already! 🙂 But in the meantime I can show you all the goodies my fabulous designers have created. Mari Koegelenberg has an amazing new kit out today:

I seriously cannot wait to scrap with it!!!!! It has the right combination of vintage/classic feel, gorgeous patterns and bright colors: right up my alley! She also has a coordinating grab bag:

It is such an amazing deal! Check out the previews in the store to see what’s included. Mari’s papers are so gorgeous for hybrid too, with rich textures and pretty patterns. I can’t wait to use these products! 🙂

I am also very excited to tell you that Brianna Cox of Scrap’It Designs is back to designing after a break. She was the first designer who picked me as a CT member and I can’t wait to see what she creates in the next few months! She has already started with this gorgeous new kit:

It is so pretty! I see myself making a few crazy clustering pages with this kit. 🙂 AND, there’s more: Bree is having a CT call:

She is so sweet and being on her team is lots of fun, so do apply! I will be back tomorrow to show you some more iNSD products and drool a bit. 😉

Surviving Easter

It has been a tiring weekend! First getting the house and food ready for our Easter guest, and then eating all the delicious food DH made. I’m almost glad to be back to work today! (almost) 😉 DH got an Easter card for Project 52 Cards, Week 17:

Week 17

You can see the Week 17 card here.


Less than one week to Easter, less than two weeks to my mom’s visit… and I have so many things I’d like to get done before then!! First of all get the guest room tidied up (=move all my craft supplies out of the way…), then catch up on some of my P365… Luckily, I have at least 4 or 5 weeks’ worth of P52 Cards done already, so if I can force myself not to do any hybrid for the next few days, I should have quite some time on my hands to get the other stuff done. 🙂 I gave DH one of the monkey cards yesterday. 😉

P52 Cards - Week 16

You can see the Week 16 card here.

I am waiting to hear about three important things today, 2 work related and 1 scrap related. I hope to hear some good news soon! Hearing bad news on a Monday is a sure killer. 🙂 Have a great week!

So Many Projects, So Little Time

I never seem to post these on time, but I have been doing very well in my Project 52 Cards. So here’s the past three weeks.

P52 Cards - Week 11

You can see the Week 11 card here. I made a thank you card because DH organized the perfect romantic weekend: gorgeous hotel, spa, shopping spree, and even a totally unexpected gift (a necklace)! It was just lovely!

For last week, I made him a Bunny Spring card. Actually, we were at the grocery store and he was about to buy an expensive card to send to a friend of his, so I told him I’d make one instead. I asked him what to put on it, and he said he wanted bunnies – which worked out just right because I was using a bunny kit on another project. I told him I needed a sentiment so he picked one. And then of course after making a flat version to be mailed to his friend, I also made a prettier one (i.e., dimensional) for DH. 🙂

P52 Cards - Week 12

You can see the Week 12 card here. It was my first time making an accordion flower. I love how this looks, but it was a bit of a pain to put it together, since I don’t own a glue gun. So I made do with glossy accents, and lots of patience. 🙂 But it turned out really cute!

Finally, I gave him this week’s card last night when he came back home after a 3 day trip.

P52 Cards - Week 13

You can see the Week 13 card here. I am in love with this little card!

Being all caught up with this P52 Cards project makes me feel even worse about my P365. I only have 8 weeks scrapped so far, so this means I have 4 weeks plus the current one still to scrap. I really need to make this a priority, or I’ll never catch up!
