In my thoughts

Just a cute card I made the other night. I made a bunch of cards and I challenged myself to use only cardstock!! It was hard!! But I got to play witha bunch of my background stamps :D

Guess who's on the new ScrapGoods DT... yep, that would be me! YAY! I'm excited for this next year! Lots and LOTS of wonderful ladies tried out this year, and I want to congratulate all for submitting your LOs! Amy and Jodi must have been going google-eyed!! So here are the LOs I submitted - ENJOY!

For those of you who don't know, ScrapGoods is a monthly kit club that not only comes chocked full of papers and embellies, but they include a technique (and everything needed to DO the technique) too!

August 2007 kit - kajinker and edged templates. I used the stamp to stamp a semi circle that I traced with the template and cut out. Kajinker'd the gems, chipboard tags, and ribbon/trim on too! Pics are of me preggo with all three girls!
February 2007 - Writing with Fiber. I 'drew' the scallops and the word 'day' with the fiber writing pen and used the heart chipboard and glitter stickers and covered with pink glitter. Pictures are of my first birthday... back in 1981 :D
May 2008 - Making your own Bling designs. I used the kit papers and cut the zig-zag cardstock to make a border. Used the Prima blue swirls and made my own orange swirls by just tracing a flourish and placing bling down. Added a HS chip letter D and cut the title from orange bazzill bling on my cricut. Pics are of mine and Marinka's kiddos at the Dinosaur park.

DT Rejects

These are the ScrapGoods DT rejects. I submitted the three I really liked (I love them all of course) and once the announcement is made, I will post the three submissions. I made myself stop doing any more LOs! Or I would never be able to choose! These first two where done with the May ScrapGoods kit - Make your own Bling Designs. I covered the title in bling, Ring around the journal block covered in bling, and bling ALL over. The bling placed in the scallop frame around the pic are actually colored 'butterscotch' with alcohol ink.FP About a boy transparency, prima swirls bling, Heidi Swapp plastic letters... more bling around the circle mat. Pictures are of us at the Dinosaur Park in the T-Rex head.
ScrapGoods Dec 07 Kit - Stitching. Everything is from the kit except the thickers and primas. Used blue embroidery floss to stitch the felt and flourishes around 'Cutie'
ScrapGoods Sept 07 kit - clear pages and transparencies. I didn't do a clear page, but there are lots of transparencies on this! Used a french curve ruler to cut the flower stem.
This one I actually put into the ScrapGoods 'History with Bling' contest. We were supposed to find a memorable day (Mr. Potato Head debuts) in May and do a LO on it with bling... here is Karis and her M. Patate Pirate!

I really thought I was scrapped out for a bit - but then ScrapGoods announced their DT search and a May Challenge... since Sunday I've done 7 pages!!! LOL! And I have two more planned! The DT application only calls for 3 LOs, so I figure I can just chooose the best three out of... however many I plan to do! I'll be sure to post the LOs I don't submit.. and those that I do, you'll just have to wait until next month (not too far away)
