Hello scrappy peeps

Well it has been a while since my last post, but I have been busy with work and I have even gotten back into scrapbooking because I love it, not because I have to. I have changed providers so the website will no longer be active, however the blog will remain intact. I will use it to keep you updated about any events I will be attending along with any sales I will be having.

 I hope you are all scrappin' happily along!

Happy Haloween!!!

P.S. the new email for Scraptures is

Final WCW for Scraptures

So this is my last post for Scraptures and I believe the last post at all for Scraptures. Unless Christa does one more tomorrow to end the blog. 
This months kit was featuring the My Minds Eye Kate and Co paper line. 

This card used Sketch Saturday #427

Now I will be working on my Disney album from 3 trips ago. LOL and hopefully I will be able to get caught up on my scrapbooking, but I doubt it. 

Have a great time creating,.

WCW August 24th

I was going to quickly put some inspiration up because we were busy all weekend with baseball but ended up doing this quickly.
It is my daughters phone/address book. It had the letter B on it, but that is the wrong letter.
So I used one of the "coasters" in the kit. Sprayed it with dylusions vibrant Turquoise. The phone is from a Lawn Fawn stamp set that came in an old card kit.
She's happy the B is gone and I used something from the kit for today's post.

Sorry it's a bad photo.

Well Christa put the pressure on for me to finish the Wild Card Wednesdays with yesterdays post. UGH!! LOL
I found this sketch on a new to me sketch site and thought it would be quick and easy to do. 

Sorry the photo is dark but the colors look amazing in better light. :)

Totally Tuesday

Well as some of you may or may not have noticed, I have fallen down on the job, or maybe I have just lost my scrappy mojo. Thankfully Chelle has not or you would have nothing to look at here at Scraptures. SO here is an update on the latest at Scraptures. Besides being steady busy with my other business, and having no time or mojo to scrap when I do have free time (I spend it in the pool or doing puzzles lately) I have decided to close the kit club. August first kits were the last kits for the club members. I should have had some Tuesdays Temptations and Finally Friday stuff done in advance but alas, I did not. I am really hoping to find some time and inspiration to create soon. I am also hoping to participate as my last event in Scrapfest Kitchener. I have enjoyed every kit I have put together and all the Scrapping events I have participated in, but I believe the tine has come to say good by. I hope you have enjoyed the scrappy goodness we have posted here in the last 5 years. Thanks for all your support.

WCW August 10th

A really quick card today. I found a cute sketch on Case this Sketch and then looked at my kit.
I was going to use all chipboard pieces but then realized that the front of the card would be too heavy and it would just fall down..not good. So I used the sentiment from the chipboard stickers and added ribbon to it. Then instead of using stamps, because that wouldn't have been enough dimension (although the stamp set in last months kit would have worked perfectly) I used the little enamel dots.

Sorry it's so dark..not much light this morning.

Items used:
Chipboard Sticker:My Mind's Eye "Kate and Co"
Enamel dots: My Mind's Eye "Kate and Co"
ribbon/cardstock unknown

WCW Aug 3rd

Just a quick card using this months kit. I used 2 different patterned papers (each is the opposite side of another one). The arrow is a sticker and then I stamped the cupcake, cut it out and pop dotted. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz one. 

Sketch is Mojo Monday 459
