I scrapped!!

I know! I haven't scrapped for months, and months and months and kind of forgot how!

Pretty simple page but wanted to focus on the photos - which look REALLY dark in the picture but aren't that dark IRL.
Paper: Echo Park
Cardstock: Bazzill
Stamps: Papertrey Ink - Embellishments & Wonderful Word Additions
Other: Papertrey dies - Embellishments & Bloom Builders #3, buttons, Kaiser bling (coloured with Copics)

*Sorry removed for publication

Stamps are 'Boards & Beams' from PTI and pattern paper is Crate Paper (paper pad). Copic markers & SU antique brads :)

Thanks for looking!

Which and colour combo do you like better? For me it's definitely the black/teal combo :)

......I'm back!

Sorry about the delay. I came back to post pics only to realize I had deleted them off my camera :P Then the weather was bad for pics and I got side-tracked making more cards so I made the most of it while I was 'in the zone' and figured I'd just do a MASS post!
Here's the rest of my cards for the 10 CARDS in 10 DAYS CHALLENGE (plus extras!)

Too many details to list but if you want specifics leave a message!

**forgot to mention some of these are CASE'd, in particular the 'Stork' card and 'You Rock' cards are CASE'd from Nichole Heady's blog :)

Multi-Mat Challenge

Hi :)
Thought I'd pop in and post pics of my attempt at Mary's challenge!

I always try and make several cards in one hit while I have all my 'stuff' out - either all the same or a slight variation of each other. Here I made 6 cards using a mix of different colors (will add details below of supplies).

I used a 1 3/4" circle punch and matted onto white scallop circles or pinked circles (spellbinders nesties) and then onto the next size up of nesties in matching cardstock color, and finally onto white doily die cut.

Stamps: PTI Tag Its #2 & Fillable Frames #10
Ink: PTI, SU & Momento black
Cardstock: SU & PTI
Ribbon: SU & PTI
Embossing folders: SU & Cuttlebug
Other: PTI Parisian Doily Die & Spellbinders

You can check out the challenge here:

Thanks for stopping by!
