Congrats Scrap your Scraps on...

your opening day, June 1, 2014...wanted to post this then, but was having issues with my computer...probably more operator error than anything...lol...

If you haven't already done so, head on over to http://scrapyourscraps.blogspot.fr/ to see what the fuss is all about...

I for one just loved the pocket cards that Mandy shared with us...making up some of those cards will not only use up some scraps but will remind  me to use my sewing machine...I am definitely inspired...

A huge shout out to Solange Jacquet for putting this all together...I can hardly wait to see what the rest of the month has for us in store...I am so proud to be a part of this team...

Looking forward to seeing you at Scrap your Scraps...A link to the site is also here on my blog...See you there...

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day...

Scrappy Wednesday

The majority of my scraps are used for making cards...
 
Not sure about you, but when I first started to scrap I saved everything...I mean everything...well as I soon found out, that was overwhelming...I still save scraps, but there is a method now to my madness...It took me a little time to get this organized like this, but once I did, it's definitely a breeze in finding something that I could use...No scrappy time was taken for this, as I accomplished this feat while watching TV...
 
I normally do not save anything smaller than 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches...When I have a scrap, that is just a little bigger than the size mentioned, I tend to cut it down to size right then and there, instead of putting it in the scrap pile...to me it saves time...
 
If I have left over scraps from a kit, I put those all in a baggie...this way, I'm not looking for matching items when making a card...
 
My PP scraps go in a separate folder...A little harder to organize, but at least they are together...
 
My CS scraps go in individual folders...Green, Brown, Orange, Red, etc...
 
Believe it or not, I do find stuff in my stash that  I now think is UGLY...Those go in a baggie that I then take to the IRL crops with me and they go on the freebie table or PIF table...
 
Have fun...

Exceptionally Excited and Honored...

I have been chosen to be one of the contributors to "Scrap Your Scraps" Blog for the next 6 months...To say that I'm excited and nervous is putting it mildly, since I know there were lots of applicants...I'm definitely the "grandmother" of the group...lol...I'm looking forward to learning and sharing...Here's a link to the site, if you'd like to check it out...I'm still learning all the ins and outs on my end. so I hope I did this right...
 
Also, congrats to the rest of the contributors...Looking forward to a fun filled 6 months learning and sharing...

Scrappy Tips

Not sure how many people use wood stamps anymore, but I found that if I coat the wood block with clear nail polish, either before or after adhering the stamp itself, it tends to be easier to keep the block a little cleaner...
 
Don't know about you, but I've dropped my brads/eyelets many times and have had one heck of time picking them up...Don't take another second away from you crafting doing that...I found that some scissors have a magnetic tip and will help in picking those up...I have fiskars...Another tip is try using a bingo wand...That works wonder too...especially if it's a big spill it picks up more than the scissors...
 
When using embossing powder, I've tried all those little containers etc. that they have for spillage...for me the best is using a page from an old magazine...the powder doesn't seem to stick to the page and definitely goes back into the container a little easier...
 
Garage sales are perfect places to find that old dictionary that your may be looking for along with being priced reasonably...

Phil Dawson #4

I for one wish Phil all the luck in the world...He is one classy player that stayed true to the Browns for all these years...
After our team was taken from Cleveland and then returned, Phil has remained faithful to the Brown's fans...I for one, appreciate everything he did for this team...but he is only 1 man...what happened to the rest of the players???  Anyone would love to make the dollars these players make...Phil earned his and then some...you earned a spot in my heart for being ever so faithful...
I certainly hope that before he retires he's able to have a Super Bowl ring placed on his finger...It is long over due and and well deserved...
Wishing you all the luck in the world...I will miss you, but will always cheer for you...

Using Washi Tape & Mr. Huey's

Well I took the plunge and now have some Washi Tape and Mr. Huey's...Now it's time to take a deep breath and use these items...All I've accomplished is making some cards...I'm still consider myself a novice in using both of these items...I'm a scrapper and card maker that can't create on their own, therefore I need inspiration...All of the cards are lifts from either Splitcoast Stampers, Two Peas, Pinterest, or Scrapbook.com...Used lots of scrap paper trying to get just the right pressure on Mr. Huey's otherwise I had a mess...So thanks to everyone for my inpsiration...I hope I did your ideas justice...TFL...

Misting Technique

I might be late to the game and everyone already does stuff like this, but just in case, wanted to share...I just watched this video about misting and thought it was awesome on how she did this...
Plus she doesn't use a cutter, she just eyeballs and then cuts away with her scissors...Enjoy...
Also want to say that I found this on Two Peas in a Bucket...Thanks for the inspiration...

Some New Stuff...

A couple of LOs that I started at my Saturday Crop and finally put the finishing touches on them at home...I have like 3 more to do...The crop is 7 hours long and I try to pack up kits to get me through...Most of the time I add the journaling or the title once I get home...This saves me from having to take everything but the kitchen sink...So far it's been working out well...Haven't posted any of my LOs for a long time, and decided I need to start posting more and more...I did get my inspiration from Becky Fleck Page Maps 2...Thanks again Becky...I just wish my camera would take better photos...They seem to look so much better IRL...Thanks for looking and enjoy your evening...
