Poker Anyone?????

Poker was the theme for my son's 16th Birthday. I LOVE re-using old cd's. It gives projects a solid base. I thought a poker chip would be a great invitation. Here's the design I came up with for the invitation to his party.

I found a website that had miniature sheets of cards to print out, which I used as the "hand" on the backside. I also found photos online of each suit and sized them for the front of the cards.

Fiskateer Card Challenge

The challenge was to come up with a card or page layout for Spring using flowers. I enjoy making cards so that's what I chose to do. I also had some Prima flowers that I had won in a drawing and used those as well.

As I was browsing through the Fiskateer message board I noticed a number of posts referencing "inchies". My interest was picqued and to I had to know, What is an inchie? An inchie is a 1" square crafted any way you want. I believe these are used mainly in swaps. Once you receive inchies through a swap you can use them any way you'd like. Scrapbook pages, cards, embellishment on a craft project... Here are my first inchies.

ATC's (Artist Trading Cards)

This is my first attempt at ATC's. I was preparing to attend the Fiska-Friendzy event at the Queen Mary in Long Beach. We had the option to create themed ATC's for the event and were able to swap with fellow Fiskateers.

I didn't even know what ATC stood for and did quite a bit of research. Quite interesting. M. Vänçi Stirnemann originated the idea in 1996 in Switzerland. The miniature cards, about the size of a baseball trading card, were intended to be traded not sold and were used basically as a business card for artists.

Scrapbookers have taken their own spin on these cards using techniques that one would use in their albums. The reverse side of my ATC's have been numbered, include my contact information, information about the event that this was made for and a small photo of me.

Below are some ATC's that were at the event. I enjoyed the process and will most likely make ATC's again!

I'm off to a C2R Scrapbooking Weekend!

Well, it's about time I made it to one of the crops!

I had to give up my spot for an A to Z Scrapbooking scrap weekend in January due to work. Couldn't commit to the full C2R Scrapbooking weekend in April. And thought I wasn't going to make it this weekend due to a soccer tournament. Lucky for me it worked out that we didn't have the soccer tournament this weekend, so off I am to my first Crops 2 Remember scrap weekend!!

I am quite fortunate to personally know the 4 mega talented ladies who brainstormed and put Crops 2 Remember in motion.

I'm off now as I still have to pack. Scott will be glad as many of my scrap supplies have been lying on the dining room table for months. Now they'll make their way into my bags and will hopefully be completed pages after this weekend. To be updated next week...

Friday the 13th at Angel's

I FINALLY got myself to a Friday night crop at Angel's. It was a great night visiting with Naomi and Lanetta. I was able to get 1 project completed and began working on another.

What, Me Crafting????

I know, you're in shock! Me too! As I said in my earlier post, I needed a gift for Monday AM and decided to make something. I'm way too long overdue to scrap and craft. MUCH needed creative thinking time. It was wonderful and too short. Here's a photo of my table loaded with the supplies for my project.

Can't post the project photo just yet, but will do (hopefully) soon. I do want to say THANK YOU! to Jessica who created this project. I can't wait for your class on the 19th!
