Dirty FITgirl's Blog Hop & Winter ATC's

ScrapFIT, Dirty Scraps, and Sassy Lil' Sketches have teamed up this weekend for a blog hop. Each site presented a challenge to do on a page. Here is what I made using the February Life Preservers Alternate kit and stamp.

Also just finished swapping out the Winter ATC swap that I hostessed over at Life Preservers. Here are the ATC cards that I made.

I used some older American Crafts paper and foam embellies. My Stampin Up scalloped circle punch and Winter Wonderland cricut cartridge. Thanks for looking!

Life Preservers February Crop Creations

I hadn't shared my creations from the Life Preservers crop yet so here they are:

This is probably my most favorite page I have done in awhile. SEI patterned paper, Basic Gray overlay and alphas, 7 gypsies, Glimmer mist, Prima flower, Making Memories metal clip, Rosa Moka alphas. This was for the Let the Latte Inspire You challenge.

This page is from a summer Life Preservers kit and it was for the Early Bird Sketch Challenge that Sandra posted. Some photos of me and Emma at Camp Oak Hill.
This page was for Jodi's 1 hour sketch challenge on day 1 of the crop. I believe this was a January 2009 LP kit.

One of the make n takes that I posted was to make a hot cocoa holder. Here is the sample I made. Winter Wonderland cricut cartridge, Basic Gray, Rusty Pickle, and Prima.
I will be honest with you in that I do not care for this page at all. But the message on it is more powerful than the art. This was for the "Love is...." challenge. This was a LP mini album kit.
This was for Laura Lee's An Eye for Love challenge. I have had this chest radiograph for awhile and have been wanting to use it and it finally happened. You had to use your eye color (mine is blue) with a Valentine color. A perfect opportunity for me to scrap a work related page. I wanted it simple so it would not take away from the x-ray. The first picture is held up to the light so you can appreciate the background.

For Jodi's second 1 hour sketch challenge I killed the rest of this LP mini kit. Also added some woven MM alphas that I have had for a long, long time.
This was a challenge from Sharon Those Old Winter Blues where you had to do a monochromatic page. It is so monochromatic I can't even see the title. I love these pictures of Emma at the beach a couple of years ago.

Well thanks for perusing my creations! The crop was a blast as always. I have a couple more things to share soon! Toodles!

Happy Valentines Day!

I posted this for the classroom on Life Preservers. I found the idea on Jana Eubank's blog. You can find directions on how to make this from a file folder here.

I wrote some love notes on the tag for my DH for Valentine's Day! I hope your Valentines Day is full of love.

Toot and Plea!

I submitted a page I created to Making Memories and it was chosen to be on their customer ideas page. I am so excited and am a HUGE fan of their products. Would you be so kind to visit my page entitled Christmas Morn at Customer Ideas and vote for it? I would be most thankful! This is one of my favorite pages to date!

Scrap Bachelor Week 2

I applied for Sassy Lil Sketches DT and although I did not make it here are the pages I did based on sketches provided. I really loved the sketches. On this page I use KI Memories (I think), Thickers, Maya Road, Prima, and Queen & Company.
Another Sassy Lil Sketches page. I used some BamPOP, Prima, Thickers, and a felt flower from Michelle . This title is a question I ask myself constantly especially when her expressions flip flop the way they do.
This page is for Week 2 of Scrap Bachelor. Based on a sketch I drew. I used Chatterbox, MME, and Thickers. The challenge was to use blue.
Come back soon to see my creations with January Life Preserver kits. Thanks for looking!
