Happy National Scrapbooking Day Everyone!
I don’t actually scrapbook, but most of the crafty people I know, do. And most of the crafty people that are at the crop I’m at right now, are. 🙂 I was going to try and follow along with one of the online crops, but it seems a little overwhelming at the moment since I’m at a real one too. Instead of an online crop challenge, my friend Emily challenged me to enter 10 challenges with one card. I didn’t make it to 10. It’s possible that if I kept looking, I could have found more, but I wanted to make more than one card today, you know? 😉 Here it is!
Little Tangles is having a Peach and Mint challenge and the Sorbet Stampin’ Up paper pack from this latest Sale-a-Bration seemed PERFECT to use. The sentiments are from the Everyday Circles set and the banner is from Party Dots. “Birthday” is stamped in Fresh Peach ink from Hero Arts. I am using that banner stamp A LOT lately. Which is really funny since I bought the set because I loved the circles! And OF COURSE the “Happy” is embossed with the Ranger Liquid Platinum!
Once I had the colors, I needed a sketch, so I grabbed one from PaperTake Weekly. It’s their Sketchie Free for All so I chose Sketch #43. I used washi instead of a second layer of patterned paper and I love the circle sentiment with it.
And what to put in the middle for an image? A Camera!!! The Paper Girls Challenge blog is having a Paparazzi challenge, and everyone takes pictures at birthday parties so it’s perfect!
So…that’s only 5. I didn’t make it to 10, but then this post would be LOOONG! I still think I did well and it was really interesting to try and combine several different challenges into one card that still was cohesive. Happy Crafting!
