Post crops photos

Two of my boards (AMR and Serendipity) had online crops this weekend, and Scrap Attack is full swing into the {SAS}sy Member Fun Month - makes for a LOT of challenges! I didn't get as many done as I would have liked, since we went to the toy show on Saturday, but that's ok. The SAS crop is going on for a whole month, so I will have plenty of time to work on those challenges. {Once I get my word and name atcs done!}

Here is my desk after the crop - I cleaned up after every project this time, which made it a lot easier to get the desk cleaned afterwards. The only thing I added since the first photo is the bow near the top of the photo (left over from the roses my DH gave me for Valentine's Day) and a Cropper Hopper insert that is holding the papers and big scraps from the crop projects.

These are the five layouts I got done this weekend, plus one of the cards (tucked on the lowest shelf of the new shelf unit). Pretty good for me. That brings me up to 9 for the month, and 3 cards. So in order to meet my February goal, I need to do 1 more layout, 2 more cards, and finish up the minialbum.

This is the other card I made- done for Kelli's tropical greetings challenge. I love that stamp - the stick people are too cute. The tree was done in several layers - I stamped it on the green for the leaves. Pink adhesive cardstock (DCWV) for the swim suit, and a piece of sandy colored cardstock for the base. I used a masking technique to that only the girl and the tree trunk were stamped on the base. The leaves were inked, curled, and put on with pop dots to add dimension. The tree trunk, hair and sunglasses were colored with colored pencils. The patterned paper came from the DCWV summer stack, and has surfboards on it - love the colors, but wish I had done the card so you could still see the surfboards.

I'll post the layouts separately at another time, especially the two I used Clear Scraps acrylic on.

Isn't it nice to have a clean space? I didn't realize how nice it was til I just cleaned mine. Great card! I need to practice more with stamping and try the piecing, too.

Love all your projects and your motivation! You go, girl :) Also impressed with how clean your space is after all that.
