A little scrappin'

I said in my last post that Project Life seems to be kicking my rear - in a good way!

I've found that I'm excited to scrap again and I've been going through some older Studio Calico kits.  I'm also working on more cards for Operation Write Home.  I really love this way of using my scraps instead of tossing them or giving them away.

I am working on a giveaway pile so keep an eye out for that announcement.

Here are just a few of the projects I finished.  I have more but I emailed them to some magazines so I'm holding on to find out if any of them got picked up before posting.

This is one of my Studio Calico kits from last year.  Lots of orange and yellow (not so much of the pastels and pinks most kits have.)
 I just loved these journaling cards and when I saw this picture it was perfect.  Very simple but its all about the journaling.

 Used some flair from Marcy Penners shop.  See previous posts about my love for flair.
 Another one using an old SC kit.  I'm really trying to get rid of at least one kit a month and use some others.  I've got a bad habit about holding on to them.

 Another thing I love right now - shaped paper clips.  These are from Amy Tan but I have others I found at Urbanic.
 Using a Studio Calico sketch from a couple weeks back and some OLD papers.  Old Fancy Pants and Jillibean Soup.  If you're into 'retro' papers, bookmark this blog because you'll be seeing a lot of older lines popping up from time to time.  A deal I made with myself if I could use my new stuff if I made at least one layout with older lines.

It feels good to have a permanent space.  Everything has its place again and isn't stored in a box or under the table.  I'll post pictures of my space in February.  Its not pretty this time but it sure is functional and thats what matters to me.  I've not had a functional space for a long time.

I've been trying to get a handle on the blog and what I want to post.  So far, I've got a little calendar going with a schedule of posts.  Slowly, I'm finding my love for the hobby again.
