At Last

Yes, at last!! This isn’t only the title of the only LO I’ve managed to scrap this week, but also what I’m thinking right now!

At last the end of the week is near and I’ve almost done most of the things I had to do this week. And at last I’ve managed to find some time for me this week to scrap!
So here’s what I did for a Word Up! Challenge at SM (we had to create the title using a different alpha for each letter), At last:


Almost Forks by April Staker (some recoloring)


a – Little Vixen alpha (recolored) by Britt-ish Designs

t – Spotty Dotty alpha by Misty Cato

l – In Print Black Alpha – Designs by Tater

a – It’s Only Natural alpha (recolored) by Vicki Stegall Designs

s – Razzle Dazzle alpha (recolored) by Britt-ish Designs

t – Gridworks alpha by Misty Cato

Font: Note this!

I like how this one turned out!! I did some recoloring (there was no orange/red originally) and it really changed the feel of it, I like it much better. This was my present for DH’s birthday this year. You should be able to read the story if you click on the picture to enlarge it, anyway, I decided to get him this because it’s something he really needed and even though we’ve been putting off buying it, he really deserved it because he’s been so patient (so this explains the title!)! 🙂
I have still a lot of work to do this week, but finally I’m seeing the end of it! 🙂
-14 to Christmas: two weeks!!!!

LOs with Candied Christmas

I couldn’t resist, so even though I should be working at my project for school, I ended up playing with Bree’s new kit, Candied Christmas!

I did a 2-pager for the Saturday Special challenge at Scrapmatters.
I used her new kit Candied Christmas, and her Flutter By Me Stamped Alpha.
Here’s the detail of page 1
and page 2
I really love the colors of this kit, and pulling up last year’s photos made me even more impatient! 🙂 -18 days to Christmas!

Christmas Tag/Ornament

I did another Christmas hybrid goodie for a challenge at Sugarplum Paperie on personalized treats.
I created a star tag that can be used to accompany some cookies and then can be used as a Christmas ornament.
The only problem is, it took me forever to assemble it!!!!!!!! 🙂
I printed the star shape twice on normal paper (so the ornament is double-sided) and I took a piece of cardboard from a frozen pizza box (I peeled off the printed part so it wouldn’t show under my star paper).
The cutting process, however, was painstaking, because I wanted to make sure no cardboard could be seen. I wish I found a quick way to accomplish this step! 🙂
I used mainly scissors, and occasionally the craft knife to trim the inner angles.
Anyway, once I cutted everything nicely
I glued the paper to the cardboard with my loyal Mod Podge.
While it dried, I resorted to make a hole so the star could be hung. Since I have no paper scrapbooking experience, I don’t have any fancy instruments either (no cute hole punches for me..), so I simply used the 3-hole punch I use for school. This took me some extra time because I wanted to make sure I centered the hole properly on the star. Luckily, no damage occurred!
Finally, I brushed the star with Mod Podge for finish. The tag can be tied with a ribbon to a bag of cookies (I didn’t have a bag sorry!) and once the cookies are eaten it can turn into a nice Christmas ornament:
I really love the final result!

Another Thanksgiving LO

I did a LO for the Roadmap to Scrap challenge at ScrapMatters.
These were the instructions:

  1. Any number of photos–arranged in a row
  2. One solid piece of paper
  3. One strip of paper
  4. One ribbon, used as many times as you’d like
  5. Ten of the same kind of element
  6. Journaling
  7. Word art as your title
  8. Cluster around your title

So, after the Turkey cake, here’s the actual Turkey we had for Thanksgiving. 🙂
