Check Out "Paperclipping"!!!

On the right side of this blog, you will see an RSS feed for "Paperclipping." This is a great website for tutorials and such. FYI... They will also be featuring sneak peaks and new releases, especially since CHA is coming up... soon... Fresh stuff is always on there, plus the new titles are listed in the feed. Have fun and take care (back to de-cluttering and organizing!).

Today I'm cleaning and de-cluttering my scrapping/crafting area. (btw... I cut my nails so I can blog more - the typing was getting difficult.) It's quite unorganized, cluttered, and a total mess. I have lots of things to do before Christmastime, and lots to do in between. How am I to get it all done?

Yes... I'm one of those people. The people that buy things, even though they don't have the time to finish them. I always have more than I can do.

I have 3 purses that need to be made, as people have been expecting them for quite some time. I also have so much scrapping to get "caught up" on. I'll never be done, but that's the fun of it, right?

Anyway, I'll be doing this the rest of tonight and tomorrow. Maybe even the day after.

I had hopes of participating more in the virtual crop but got so disgusted with all the mess, it made it really hard to do anything. So here I am. Gotta go... got so much more to do!

Simply Sketchy Challenge - Frugal Scrappers

I actually got one challenge done on a virtual crop over at Frugal Scrappers. It is a group I joined just the other day. The challenge is "Simply Sketchy" and follows a sketch. I did the best I could in the time I had. And here it is. I sure hope I'm posting this right...

The papers are from my stash...

The "mom" is from Beyond Birthdays, the heart from George & Basic Shapes, and the "Mo" is from Opposites attract.

The heart and borders from the larger photo are chalked.

Still lovin' my ATG gun!

Father's Day Card

I know it's a little late, but here is my Father's Day Card. I love this card!
This card is super simple and a breeze to make with the Medallion technique I learned at SplitCoast Stampers! On the SCS tutorial, they used a scalloped edge. (Check out the tutorial here.) I decided to take it to a more "manly" level and do the rope border by Fiskars.I also added distressed stripes with the Cuttlebug and further distressed them with Tim Holtz's Walnut Stain. The stamp is Studio G. The rest is my stash (finally using it up). I bought nothing, only used what I had. Yeah me!
