A little bit of scrappy stuff!

I've been busy doing swaps. My new found addiction is LOTWs. These Letter Of The Words are quick and easy and cheap to mail! Here are a few that I have done in the past week or two.

The 'n' is for Nana.... I love this and will be perfect for my boys' Nana.. she loves pink roses. I cut the rose from the "Indie Art" Cricut cartridge and the 'n' is from Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge. I Stickled the rose and added a sequin sticker on the 'n'.

The "O" is for Mom. The orange base layer and shadow of the 'O' is a Coordination paper - it is black on the other side. The pink layer and 'O' was a scrap that I think came from a stack of paper from Walmart. The patterned paper is from DCWV The Glitter Stack - which I LOVE!!. I added the orange flower eyelet and Stickled both the center of the eyelet and the O. Took the basic idea from a card I made a couple weeks ago (see post below).

The "O" is for Son. All of this paper came from an 'American Traditional Designs" stack I got last summer - and I'd totally forgotten about it! The bottom layer is orange not pink as it looks in this photo. The orange ribbon is from Dollarama. I Stickled the polka dots on the blue layer with Lime Green Stickle. This is one of my favourites - I love the bright, fun colours.

The 'a' is for Dad. White base layer is Coordinations, the black layer is Coordinations as well (I think - I've sent them away already so I can't double check.) The striped layer is Heidi Grace Designs - Midnight Kisses| Pinstripe. The 'a' is Prisma paper - I can't remember the name - but it is one of my favourite colours. The black ribbon is from Walmart and I Stickled the black layer with Black Diamond stickles.

These two pages were for a "What a Mess?!" swap on Splitcoast. The "It wasn't me." Paper I left pretty much to its own.. I added a photo mat that I matted with the red that matches the second page. I cut out the 'footprint' journal box and tacked that over one of the footprints already printed on the paper. As an embellishment I added the red brad in the period. The "Sometimes I can resist temptation.. but never mischief page" is printed on the paper. I cut out the filmstrip from the Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge and the stars are from my new favourite cartridge the Indie Art Cricut cartridge.

Last one for this post. This was for a Cricut swap. We had to use the cricut for our main element on the page. I used it for every element - with the exception of the white and blue on the journal box. I cut the title out of Plantin Schoolbook, the film strip from Mickey and Friends and the stars are from Indie Art. The black base of the journal box is one of the cut outs from the filmstrip.

I actually did two layouts for this swap but I forgot to take a picture of my "Fall" layouts (Melanie - if you are reading this - can you please take a picture for me!! ;-) Thanks!!)
