Old Stuff

For the Friday challenge over at Frosted Designs I created this cute card with some old stuff I have had in my stash for years. The only new item was the blue paper from October Afternoon.
The rest of the pattern paper is from Nana's collection be Die Cuts With a View and the sticker is by Marcelal by K & Company.
Goes to show you if you hold onto something long enough it will come back into style just like my chevron, unless it was never trendy.
I used the last card sketch from Frosted Designs.

Warning Long

This post is going to be long with a lot of poor quality photos since it is after 11 p.m.when I took these.
This week I played along with the Coredinations online crop.
Here is what I did for each challenge.

Day 1 July 17th
1. Lydia -Ad challenge – Chocolate Box
For this page I kept it fairly simple and used the colors and shapes found in the ad.
2. Kim -Trendy things- White wash
For this page I used all the trendy stuff. I even made my own chevrons using the how-to here
3. Char -Antiquing- Core Essentials
I crumpled up the half circles on this page to give the paper an antique look.
4. Debbie – Cardstock only- Core Essentials
This page I used only core cardstock.
5. Jennifer -Strip It- Challenge- Core-prize pack
I used paper stripes I embossed to cover this frame.
6. Melissa-handmade embellishment challenge- Vintage Cardstock
I created the folded flowers for this simple card
7. Andrea- Core Die Cut challenge – Core Cuts
I actually used my Cricut to cut the die cuts. I think I am going to have to use my little bug more. I love it. 
Day 2 July 18th
8. Lydia- Color Challenge – Spotted Collection
When I saw the colors for this challenge my mind went to Christmas. So I created this card using no Christmas theme products. 
9. Ellen – Pinterest Challenge – Glitter Silk
I love the grid pattern and the big photo I used to covr up the not so perfect grid lines. 
11. Debbie- All Cardstock Challenge – Core Amour
 On this page I only used core cardstock but I also add stickers for the title.
12. Cari – scoring challenge- Tim Holtz Kraft Core
 I scored those three different black pieces differently.
13. Kristine – sketch – Core Prize pack
 I kept this page true to the sketch.
Can you believe it I did all these different projects with only two different Coredinations card pads. Black Magic and Cosmo Cricket Classics.

Washi Love

When I first heard about this Japaneses style tape I didn't get the what the big fuss was. When I got my little hands on it I began to get it. Since I am cheap when it comes to my scrapbooking supplies when I want to try something I have only bought the cheap stuff from Target and Walmart.
When I saw the Friday challenge over at Frosted Designs I knew I wanted to do it and I used their sketch #45.
I changed the sketch a bit but it is still recognizable.

Bad Me

I know I said I would say the other card I made for those two challenges I mentioned in previous post on Sunday but life got in the way.
I have been feeling blah for the last couple of days. Allergies, prepping floor materials for my dad and the heat has gotten to me.
Here is the card I promised.
The old was the birthday stamp I have had for over 5 years. It is and old EK Success roller stamp. The new is basically everything else.

I want to show you today a card I made last week during Club CK's one-hour challenge (which this only took less than 30 minutes ti do). I also wanted to add Kim Kesti's challenge she has on her blog here. My new item is the pink polka dot paper from Pebbles and pom-pom trim from American Crafts and the old is the rest of the stuff (My Mind's Eye,, Marcella by K & Company and cardstock scraps)
I will show you anther card I made tomorrow using these two challenges again.
