First of all, I want to remind all my readers about the message board I started up. There are already some really great ladies here, and we would love to have you, even if you aren't a swapper. Check it out.
Second, Nicole sent me this, she said it made her think of me! I love it so much, I just had to share it! Thanks Nicole!
So, now for the crop! Today I am sharing everything I have done so far, that aren't layouts.
This was Nicole's Stamp Challenge, where we had to use a stamp we had never used.
I used an Inkadinkado stamp I got for 50 cents at Jo-Ann's. I used Bazzill cs, My Little Yellow Bicycle Love Letters pp, Fiskars Apron Lace Border Punch, and Kaiser Crafts pearls.
Kay's Recycled Card Challenge, but don't let it look recycled!
I used this invite I got for my cousin's baby shower....
And made this card out of it. I used SU Pink Pirouette cs, Studio G stamps, stitched ribbon, Prima flowers, and some rhinestones.
Chris's Fabric Tag Challenge.
I used a scrap of the really cheap fabric my mom had and spread Modge Podge all over it to help stiffen it up, then let it dry. I put some K & Co chipboard on it, then sprayed with my only 2 colors of Glimmer Mist. After that was dry, I added the ribbon and eyelet, Technique Tuesday stamps, and hand stitching.
I hosted an Aug crop ATC swap, very small. This is the ATC I decided to make. We played BINGO again this month with scrappy words, and in an hour and half, we racked up 27 pages of comments!!! That super fun and hilarious game inspired this ATC, that and the fact that the idea popped into my head as I was finally dozing off to sleep that night!
I used Kaiser Crafts pp, made the BINGO card on my computer and printed it out. The flower is a Prima flower, then I used hand-dyes "Skittles", and cut out the AMR from the backside of the pp and with my Cuttlekids Tadpole Alphabet.
I mad 12 of them, and each one has a different color "dauber" and a different BINGO.
Tomorrow, some of the layouts I got done, there were lots of them, and hopefully will be more soon! (writing this on Monday). There are still 5 challenges I want to get done from the crop!
