This weeks crafty goodness ;)

This week has been a pretty crazy week.  I have been offered a fun opportunity but I have to wait for the final confirmation before I announce and really begin planning (this is going to cut into my crafty time slightly...but it is a good thing!)

In my crazy week I managed to cram in a tiny bit of crafty time and I managed to complete these cards and I combined a boat load of challenge blog sites into these few projects as well.  :)

So.....

For the first card I created a tri-fold card for the challenge over at Pile It On.  It was a simple challenge...just create a tri-old card.  I used some of the gorgeous Once Upon a Springtime paper by Graphic 45.  I really wanted to make this card pop more and have some 3d fairy's on it but I was not able to find any in my stash or during my visits to the resale shops this week so I had to do without :(  I started to create some quilled fairies....but there is just not enough time in the day for everything.  ;)


This next card was created for the challenge over at Totally Gorjuss to create a card using only black and white.  I also combined the challenge over at The Sisterhood of Crafters and that was to use ribbons and brads.

I used more Graphic 45 for this card from their Le-Romantique collection.  This is just a simple of patterned paper 5 1/2 x 11 scored and folded in half to create a pocket to hold the inside of the card.  A simple way to create an elegant card.

 This third card was created with the challenges from The Shabby Tea Room and Stamptacular Sunday in mind.  The Shabby Tea room challenge was to create a card using red/white/black and Stamptacular Sunday's challenge was to use a frame.

So...I used paper from the Le Cirque line by Graphic 45 (and this is pronounced without the k sound at the end.....I have been pronouncing it wrong...whoops).

I used my most recent discovery on this card.....Japanese Washi Tape.  You can get it at various online stores and etsy shops.  Here is the link to one fun online vendor - Cute Tape 

This is so fun and I can't wait to make more projects with it.  As you can see it is slightly transparent so you can see the patterned paper behind it.  Use it to bind the edges of books, as faux ribbon, embellish your project with it.....endless possibilities......


And the last card I created this week was for challenges on Stamp Scrap and Doodle Saturdays and for the sketch challenge over at Cardabilities.

I used paper from the Halloween in Wonderland line from Graphic 45.  These easel cards are so fun to make!




Well.......I hope that you enjoy my projects as much as I had fun making them!  I have a list of projects that I hope to get done soon and of course another list of projects I want to get started....never ending!  Hopefully I will find a little more time next week to make a dent in my list. 

I am excited to check out the challenge tomorrow over at a new blog I discovered called Counterfeit Kit Challenge.  They post a kit and then you recreate that kit using your own stash.  Then you work through that kit throughout the month.  They post a few challenges throughout the month as well.  I think it sounds like lots of fun and a great way to use up some of your stash.  I am game!!!!!!!  Bring it on!!!!!!

Have a great weekend!!!!!
