This is challenge #8 which was to make something with a summer theme. These photos were taken in 2009 and I have been trying to stick them on paper since! I knew I wanted to use blue paper for the background but didn't know what else! Since I had been using Pooh Font and A Childs Year all day, I figured, why stop now!
So here it is. My daughter (yup the baby from challenge #6) finding a crab at Cape Cod.. She was so proud of herself!
Challenge #6 was to incorporate a tag into the project. Going through the book for A Childs Year, I had to make a baby page for my daughter. The picture is right after she was born and the little bugs were die cuts that I have had forever. I added some yarn for some color and texture (sorry hard to see, there is so much pink it makes the photo almost washed out!!!).
Hope you like it!
The 5th challenge was to create something 3-D. So, after thinking bit, I decided to make a card holder. My friend likes frogs so I used Create a Critter and cut two of everthing at 4 inches. Then I used my hot glue gun and attached one complete frog on each side of a clothespin. I printed out the sentiment from my computer. When assembled, I realized my froggy didn't like to stand, so I added a stick from my yard! and still being a bit wobbly added a rectangle of cardstock for the base.
Challenge #4 was to make something for Mothers Day. This is the one that I completed Saturday so I could give it to my MIL. I used yellow paper as it is her favorite color. I used my Cricut cartridge A Childs Year for the cut and printed the sentiment from my computer. I used twine on the bottom of the card for a little dimension.
I skipped challenge #2 as I wasn't sure if Kraft cardstock was a specific brand...
So, challenge #3 was to create something in support of Breast Cancer (using the ribbon or pink). I made a quilt for a friend to raffle off to help her raise money for the Avon walk. I have been trying to put the pictures in my quilt book for a while, but couldn't get the colors right with the paper - too much pink looks like Pepto!
I didn't use any fancy cuts or anything, just my Bic markers and my Creative Memories corner punch..
For National Scrapbook Day, Robyn at My Pink Stamper sets up 12 challenges during 12 hours!! I only managed to complete 1 on Saturday and I completed 5 more today. Phew! So, here they are (in order of the challenges that I entered).
Challenge #1 - Anything Cupcake...
I used my Cricut cartridge Create A Critter for the cupcake (minus the cherry!). The words were cut from Pooh Font Set. I also used Studio 8 glitter glue to decorate the face and make little squiggles on the card.
Hope you like it!
