Ten Things Team: Brads {Practical Scrappers}

This morning at Practical Scrappers, we share with you several ways to use brads and eyelets.  Probably like most of you, I have so many brads but don't always use them in creative ways so this was a fun challenge.  

I used several different shapes and sizes of brads to create geometrical interest to my layout.  

Materials:  BoBunny paper and brads, Stampin' Up! brads, Creative Embellishments Gears

Love Themed Projects {SWAT Drill #26}

Thanks for stopping by today, Love is still in the air!  At SWAT, we have several very cute projects to share with you as we continue to celebrate love.  The things that we love, the people we love and the memories we love to cherish and share so artistically.

This is what I love the most - time with my husband on the beach.  Even the photo looks like we're in the spray of the waves - well - that's because a little distressing makes things look so cool!

I hope that you've had a great few weeks with your families and make many loving memories!

Valentines {Practical Scrappers}

Good morning,

Valentine's Day in only one week away!  I've still got time to make Valentines for the kids, right?  At least I'm no longer making 36 for each cutie pie - the boy likes to give out just a few to his friends and the girl is probably in the same boat now that she's in middle school.

I made this min-album for my sweet Valentine!  I also found a very cool keychain that says "I Pick You!" and is in the shape of a guitar pick ... because he plays guitar.  Yup = I'm that clever.

Have a scrappy-happy day!
Materials used:  Tons of scrappiness from my stash.

Where Did they Go? {NAS #300}

Good morning - the Super Bowl is over - Groundhog's Day is over and its time for a new sketch at Nuts About Sketches.  While I usually stay true to the sketch, this time I needed to move things around a bit and I'm really happy with how my two-pager turned out!  You won't find this on the main blog because I modified it a bit too much.  Be sure to link up your interpretation!

Here's the sketch:

Here's my layout!
Have a fantastic day!

Love Your Love

Love Your Love - Challenge #49 at Paper Girls Challenge Blog

Several of my scrappy friends make just the most wonderful banners and I’ve been a bit hesitant to create my own - but you want to know something - they are not as difficult to create as I had feared.  I’m really enjoying creating banners - I made one for Valentine’s Day for our home and one for my classroom!

Have a scrappy happy day!
