A productive crop day/night!!

Hi there!!

Today I am sharing with you some projects I STARTED and COMPLETED at a crop last Saturday!!

I am so super impressed with myself - it's not very often I can say I'm productive at crops and such!! 

Here is my 1st project - my son's (who will be 1 on 27th August!) birth announcements. These are a hybrid project - I found some super cute baby boy papers on Etsy from The Dapper Fox ScrapsI added a couple of the designs to some 6x4 templates in PSE10, added some text to one of the layers and printed out my 2 layers and my photo's (with a white border). I then matched some Midnight Muse (Stampin Up) cardstock to the papers I printed and got trimming, sticking and pop dotting.

Here is the finished project and I am so very happy with them:

I also managed to create my August ATC swap for a FB group - Aussie Scrappers Society to which the theme was Steampunk/Industrial. That is not really my "norm" so I had a heap of fun doing something different and stepping out of my comfort zone. I did some stamping, heat embossing, distressing with inks and also distressing the edges and using some charms that I was keeping for "something"!!

Here they are:

These guys are going postal today :) And, again, I'm pretty happy with the finished design :)

I also managed a start on another of Alyce's (over at Kit and Clowder) card kits - July "Charmings" kit but couldn't hear the video very well so gave that up and went back to my PL. Not anything to show you for that as it was mostly journalling here and there. But I feel like I achieved a fair bit so I am super happy!!

I hope I can help to inspire you to create something fun and maybe something out of YOUR norm. Thanks for stopping by :)
