I'm really not scrappin this summer as much as I planned. Oh, I started off with the best of intentions, bought some new stuff (well, indulged a little too much on new QK the past couple months), cleaned and re-organized my scrap room, took a bunch of pics on vacation--and then nothing. I'm not worried though because I still can't wait to start on a new project every time I walk in the scrappy zone, but I just don't make the time. I've been busy spicing up the patio with new plants, flowers and such and working on a major purge of all the unnecessary clutter in the house. Did you know small rodents really really like to make their homes in cardboard boxes you've been saving for years in the garage? Ask me how I know...
I've worked on a little here and there, mostly commissioned cards for others, end-of-tour Army gifts, and did I mention cards?? Nothing for my own albums, sadly. Here's a card I made last weekend for our friends' 15th wedding anniversary. They decided to hold a vow renewal ceremony and it turned out to be almost like a formal wedding. It was beautiful despite it being held outdoors at the end of June in Georgia. I think it reached 104 that day.
I used the QK Rev label die on this one. What a versatile design this has. I love the two borders it cuts and all the options for "layering". I made the card base by partially tracing a BG chipboard album on the fold and cutting it out. The title is QK Banana Split and I used the MS frond punch. I made an envelobox for the card(love those things) and the paper line used is the SEI Black Orchid stack from Michael's.
Hope you're enjoying the lazy hazy days of summer!
