Scrapping Retreat II

I'm back in Berlin, Ohio at the Berlin Inn scrapping with the Columbus Scrappers. We've had a great weekend (Fri-Sun this time). I got 9 pages done - which means I'm got up on pictures. Got a lot of my Proverbs 31 swap done (10 4x6 pages).

Pati mentioned that she was going to make cards with the scraps from her layouts. Sounded like a great idea so I thought I'd do that same. Here are some of the cards I got done.

This first card was copied from the Crooked Card Creations blog (Cathleen Torina).

The following are all me : )

This card was CASED from PaperCrafts Magazine, Sep/Oct10 (Jen del Muro)

I've got a pile of scraps I'll work with tomorrow before we pack up to leave. As much as I enjoy this concentrated time to scrap, I miss home!

Baby and big kid and birthday cards

My sister-in-law turned 50 this month so I made her a card. I have never gathered ribbon before and I was pleased with the outcome. This card was CASEd from the Crooked Card Creations blog.

Here is a another version but I was short on ribbon so I didn't get to gather it!

I made some baby bib cards for all my great nephews coming into the word over the next few months (4 of them, including one set of twins!). I also wanted to make some big kid cards for an older sister and older brother (both still toddlers, but they deserve their own cards too).

It's a great day...the sun is shining, the laundry is done, the house is quiet, The River (104.9) is on the radio and I've spent the day in my scrap room.

I've got several cards to show you later. I will upload them all at once. Wishing I had bought more than one pack of the papers from Ollie's yesterday!

Have a beautiful weekend.

OWH Stars & Stamp Challenge

It was a dark stormy night...the thunder rolled in and the lightning flashed...I went to my scrap room to unplug my printer and cricut and decided to make a card : )

This is for the OWH Stars and Stamps challenge. We were to use patterned paper. Every thing here came from my scraps folder (except the flowers and bling).

OWH S&S challenge

I made this card from the Stars & Stripes Challenge sketch .

The top one is the original card I made for the challenge. The second one is the one I made with the scraps I had after making 6 of the top design! They all go to OWH in my next shipment.

Neighbor card

This is the card that I cut out last weekend on my cricut but didn't put together until today. Does it need something else? It feels plain to me. Maybe a blue cloud??
