I pulled out my Mayberry WOG Kit. I adapted this one for my own personal use, instead of for a class or workshop. (I always see things differently...LOL! Only follow the wog kit map when working a class or workshop). Anywhooo...I had some odd and end pics that I wanted to put in layouts but, I did not want to do a whole page just for one pic. This is what my crazy brain came up with. I also wanted to incorporate the fruit theme for a blog challenge as well. Then you will see at the bottom, I made a card with the lefts overs from this part of the paper pack I used. I still have plentyof cardstock and B&T papers to make about 3 maybe 4 more layouts. I love these paper packs.
CTMH products used unless noted otherwise.
Paper pack, button badges, & stamp set from the Mayberry Workshop on the Go Kit. Colors used: Smoothie, Olive, Sweet Leaf, Cranberry, Sunny yellow, & Colonial white.
On the first page I stamped the pear in Sweet Leaf 1st then Sponge daubed the stamp with Olive in various placeas and restamped the image. The apple, I stamped in Sunny yellow first, then daubed the stamp with Olive and Cranberry and restamped the image on top of the yellow. Cut those images out and pop dotted to the layout.
Here you see the button badge stamped in a closer view.
Here is the card I made with some of my left overs. I am sending this to a friend of mine. So I am not sharing the inside in case she happens to get on here before she receives it. This is the B &T paper from the Mayberry paper pack that I made the scallop circles from.
I edge the inside of the scalloped whole punches and all the edges of the cardstock in Olive. I centered the punched out area, then stamped the cherries and the flower in the center. I stamped the sentiment card stock in yellow flowers and also placed 3 buttons from bag of buttons onto the card. I do not make a lot of cards, so, I think this one is pretty good. I'll try more embellishments on my next attemp for a card. Hope you like my creations this week. Have more creations but, not enough time to post everything. I'll be back later on this week or over the weekend...Life happens first...
PSSSS.....Also, to challenge myself to make cards, I have decided to make cards for the Operation Write Home Organization....This is where we send hand made blank cards to our heros so they are able to send messages home. They are in desperate need of Fathers day cards by the 21st of May. Please read the guidelines and watch the mailroom video. They have a location close to you to mail them to so they don't take as long.
I won't be able to send a lot at this moment...but, I will send at least 10 to 15 to them before the deadline. The next deadline will be may 30th for Memorial Day cards I believe. Click on the badge I have added to my side bar. If you can help them out, It would be greatly appreciated. Maybe I can host a monthly card making in my area for our heros.
