Scrapaholics Anonymous

I think I may have to join one of these soon!! I can't seem to stop buying supplies! Yesterday I stopped by Scrapbook Nook. The temptation was too much, so I left and decided to go to Ross for awhile. Well, I didn't know Ross had a small scrapbook section filled with older kits for a very good price!! I just couldn't help myself! 

The weather was AMAZING yesterday! I didn't do much since I had a Dr's appointment, so I just laid low and just made a couple of things. My friend and my scrapping mentor's little girl is celebrating her first birthday in a few weeks. So, I created this card for her. 

I just took a basic piece of pastel cardstock and created a center step card fold. The design paper is from DCWV's Nana's Kids collection. I cut out some butterflies from a Cosmo Cricket cardstock and used some K and Company Embellishments. The Lady Bug is from Color Bok, with a couple more K and Company gems!

Scrap our Stash was having a Red, White, and Blue challenge but I couldn't think of what to make! I had tons of paper, but was blanking out on a project! I wanted something unique and I wanted to make something other than a card or LO. I stumbled upon this Mini Hat from Craft Warehouse, and it was PERFECT!!! I also entered this to Just for Fun's Precious Metal Challenge.

I used DCWV's Summer Dream stack to create this. I didn't exactly follow the template that Craft Warehouse had. Didn't feel like plugging in my printer. :-/ The ribbon is once again from Target's $1 bins. The  embellishment in front were just random buttons I had laying around connected with wires. The back had some tulle held by paper flowers.

Here is my throwback project for the day. I made this as an Dating Anniversary Card for my husband last year. Yes, we celebrate our dating and our wedding anniversary! :) I try to not just give him a card for our anniversaries because I make cards for everyone else, so I made him this mini book.

Well today is another gorgeous day! My husband's working, maybe the little peanut and I will go on an adventure. I still have a few things I need to do though. I will be expanding my crafting corner, to a bigger corner of the house! :) That should be fun. I still have to play around with the craft supplies I bought yesterday! Plus, I found some awesome paper organizers for $1 at Target! I will have pics of that once I have my corner situated! I also need to make a thank you card for my aunt. Maybe I can do all this before my hubby gets home and all three of us can go on an adventure!

Have a good day!!
