Weekly Wrap-up!

Happy Sunday  ya’ll!

Where did August go?! I know I say it every month, but that’s because I just can’t believe how fast this year is whizzing by! We’ve got five days left until September begins and the start of a new month is always my favorite, I know I’ve said that too before! With good reason, too, it’s so exciting seeing all of the new challenges, the buffet that the designers work so hard on, new guest designers, new new new- I love all things shiny and new!


…now now now, before we get too excited about the newness of the beginning of a month, let’s not forget the end of this month! You’ve still got a few days left to complete your challenges – I know I need to get a couple done!

One of those on my list to finish is the Technique Challenge, clipping papers (to alpha, but you can clip papers to ANY shape!). The tutorial, by Amy P of Unforgettable Moments, is very good for beginner scrappers, definitely a good trick to know and have on your scrapper belt.

Here is a layout by Lisa from the gallery using this technique,

she blended two papers and clipped to her alpha, creating a fun effect!  Her entire page is beautiful, too.  I’m totally inspired now to get fancy with my alpha!

It’s truly a lazy Sunday here, but I’m gearing up to attend an exercise class (Lord, help me!) this afternoon and I’m terrified! Of course, I intend to scrap about it, maybe even for my technique challenge. 😉 There are a couple GREAT get fit, be healthy, weight loss, life changing kits in the store that I just HAVE to share with you!

Working on Me by Colie’s Corner,

A Work in Progress by Inspired Designs,

 and some great wordart, Getting Fit by Creations by Julie.

Pair all three kits together to make a fun food, exercise diary! You could even use Creations by Julie’s Hybrid planner pages template to create your diary/log. I’m totally inspiring myself right now, so I hope I’m also inspiring you too!

It’s a wee bit quiet the last week of the month, everyone so busy wrapping up, so I haven’t got much more to share with you, but do check out our Fresh Baked from Friday, there are some ridiculously cute kits that came out – that’s not exaggeration. RIDICULOUSLY cute, so go check ’em out!

Have a happy scrappy day my friends!
