LO's done at a weekend Crop!

Here are the LO's I did at the crop this last weekend. I was hoping for at least 20 but considering how I was feeling I am pleased with these.
George for the star, HK Font for the lettering, HA for the flourish.

HA for the flourish and PS for the font.

HA flourish.

Chalked back ground...missing officer's table...can't say more. Rose from HEA.

Page 1

Close up of squares. I colored the orange and pink flowers by hand and the squares were cut and layerd 1/2", 3/4" and 1"...I guess this was inchie training.

page 2

Torn paper & computer journaling

Torn paper and gasp...sticker letters.

Calendar page with pins that I got this weekend. Die cut is from my Sister in Laws store.

Used 50 states and HK Font and the CM paper squares from the scrap pack we got at the crop. (THANKS!!!)

Sticker border that had to be done for crop bingo...but I like how it turned out.

Close up on the CB, ink and punch.

Pooh Font with CB embossing and inking on the punched out area.

Handcuffs are a cut file from someone on the MB. I can't find her name right now, but will come back and give credit when I can. The flag is from 50 States.

Alphalicious and a flower punch.

Close up of the flowers. LOVE that punch! (THANKS!!!)

Mickey Font for the letters. Rub ons were kinda a joke...hee hee!


All 5 inchies together~

Larger (1" ice cream cone) this was my "mistake" that those in the swap will benefit from. I did forget to stamp the cone...oh well! :)

Indie Art Ice Cream cone. Ice Cream done with Dazzling Diamonds. Cone stamped. Tiny little bugger! HA!

Layered Cricut cuts. The red is actually painted. This one doesn't show the streaks well but you can see the distressing IRL. Outlined in glitter pen.

Flowers and butterflies are a punch and the flowers are on green stickles. Skittle used for the sun.

My favorite inchie...stamped & the flowers colored by hand and stickled in the middle. Little frog is a punch.

Siobhan's Scrap Envy Cave!

We have recently stimulated the economy and bought some furniture...I was able to get some shelves that were more functional in a scrap room!
Looking into the scrap room from the dining room. The living room is just to the right of this view and the kitchen is directly behind. My house has a really open floor plan so I had to make sure that everything flows well together.

This is a second view into the room.

Another view looking in from the kitchen/dining/living room...

Cardstock storage and yummy massage chair~a girl must unwind! LOL! The closet in this room is mine too and there are shelves in it that are the complete width and depth of the closet but they are a mess and you don't get to see them~! LOL!

My scrap desk. It is a ScrapNCube set up and I LOVE it. My DH bought it for me a few years ago. The desk is 60" long and 26" deep! Each cubit houses it's own goodies and the cubit on the upper right houses my patterned paper. It is almost full but I can supposedly get 700+ pieces in there. In the others I store my metal embellies, buttons, ribbon, fibers, punches, embossing powders, stamps, inks, misc die cuts, Crop o dile, stickels and chalks. I store my ATG in the MM turntable now so the holder is an actual kleenex holder now and the paper trimmer is my one and only Craigslist find...a fairly local lady decided she liked her CM one better! $20 bucks! Hee hee!

E rack. The top shelf is reserved for my lappy when I am scrapping so that I can have it close but not taking up valuable desk space!

My large format Epson printer compliments of the Colorado Lottery!!! We won $200 on a scratch ticket and when I gave Shawn half he wanted his half put towards a good printer!!! Yippeee, we both won! This Expedit has small albums, Mommy's movies, magazines, Xyron, primas, skittles, and my Cuttlebug!

Middle Expedit has completed albums, video games and eletronics and of course a TV.

Another Expedit shelf with photo storage, cards, DCWV stacks, LO waiting for album homes, alchol inks, and embellies storage. I also have a tool caddy on the top which I store letters in

How my scrap room usually looks with Hunter playing video games!

This card was made for Amanda's Easter basket. I just thought the idea was too funny and knew I could recreate this in a card. The funny thing was, Amanda used the very same concept in her good morning message on Easter, before she opened her basket! Great minds think alike and I just loved being Amanda's partner!

Sympathy Card

My wonderful assistant Kathy recently lost her beloved aunt. This sympathy card is for her. I used alcohol inks and some cool mirrored paper that I found in Kansas City at a little stamp store. The butterflies are Cuttlebug.

I recently participated in an Easter Basket Swap on the Cricut MB, Night Owl thread. My partner, Amanda is just the sweetest gal! I made these cuts for her to include in her basket. Several of them I tried to personalize the best I could. Amanda I hope you enjoy them! I had a blast making them for you!
