More Than WORDS

Hi! The word to use on your mini project this month at More Than Words is.... Words! Hmmm, what can you create for this?

I made a tag.

I really just used up lots of scraps on this one.

Will you join us this month? You can find the challenge here.

Happy scrappin'!

Going Geometric!

 Hello again!

Have you seen the new challenge over at Kraft + yet? The challenge is to Go Geometric! Well that one got me thinking.  Here's what I made:

I had a clear idea of what I wanted to make and the triangles came out pretty much as planned. I happened to find the stencil though when I was looking for something to put on the background and it was so perfect for the geometric challenge that I couldn't resist it. 

I knew this design would be great for using up paper scraps so I raided my leftovers drawers. Some of the paper is really old but I jazzed the page up by adding some very recent geli prints and stitching. I had it in my head that I wanted blanket stitching on the large red triangle. I contemplated doing it by hand for about 3 seconds then I did it on the machine! As usual, I did lots of messy stitching too.

I kept the leftover paper scraps theme going by making a flower out of coordinating scraps. I love how it turned out. I almost finished off a packet of Heidi Swapp stickers on this but couldn't quite do it. I never seem to finish packs of anything!

I sure hope you can join us this month. You can find the challenge here.

Happy scrappin'!

Book Club


So many things have changed since the pandemic started. One of the small changes in my life is that our little book club has to be done by zoom. It's not the same as catching up with my friends irl but it has to do for now.

The challenge this month at More Than Words is to be inspired by the word "Books" and to use use Book Pages on your project. I went one step further and created my art journal page in a book!

I have to fess up that our 'book club' might actually be more of a get together with friends than a real book club!

Will you join us with your book inspirations this month? You can find the challenge here.

Happy scrappin'!
