Sketch Sunday #32

I can’t believe that I have done 32 weeks of challenges! True, it wasn’t 32 straight weeks. I have never been that great at consistency, unfortunately. But lately I have been trying to be better at it. Sometimes life just gets in the way!

Anyway, this week’s sketch comes from My Favorite Things. I like doing their challenges because it doesn’t take long to look for the sketch and I get a chance to win an awesome prize! Here is the link to the sketch if you want to play along:http://www.cardchallenges.com/2015/08/wednesday-sketch-challenge-sketch-242.html

I made a video for Sketch Sunday showing how I put the card together. I also did a voice over in this one, which is something I haven’t done for awhile. Usually I don’t have much time to edit the video, so it goes up as is!

Here is a link to the video:https://youtu.be/ywGsfOCcBPM

They have a day for everything!

Posted on

Happy National Scrapbooking day! I didn’t realize until a year or two ago that this day existed, like many of the other “National so-and-so-” days. I am not sure who decides that it’s a National day, but I am glad this one came about. Not only do stores give great deals, but it’s an excuse to craft all day. (Who needs an excuse to do so, though??)

Unfortunately, I won’t be participating this year. At least not in the traditional sense. I am heading down to the shore to spend the day walking around at the Ocean City Block Party. It’s always packed and there are great vendors. I love walking the ten or so blocks to check everything out. This year may be difficult – I am going to need to stop and sit a lot because of my knee, but I am going to try to push myself. So, instead of working on things to sell or my own projects this National Scrapbook day, maybe I will buy from another fellow scrapbooker.

I will, however, be working on some sketches and new ideas for projects. So, I guess that means in a way I am participating. I have so many new products that I can’t wait to use and need to draw some sketches so that I can get started on using them. I went to Jo-Ann’s and A.C. Moore last night and got a couple of things. I didn’t go crazy like I have been at the online stores.

I was disappointed in Jo-Ann’s. Their scrapbooking section was so tiny (in my store at least) and it wasn’t that great. Their prices were higher than A.C. Moore’s or Michael’s on some things. For example, I bought a Zig 2 way glue pen that was a whole dollar more than at the other two stores. I only bought it because I had a 50% off coupon. In retrospect, I should’ve used that at Michael’s and got more for my money, but I didn’t want to go there too.

Anyway – I am getting a little of topic. You all know I can ramble! I just wanted to wish my fellow scrapbookers (and I’d include carmakers as well!!) a Happy National Scrapbooking Day! May you be creative all day long. Oh – and is there a separate National Cardmaker’s Day? I wonder………
