Flashback Friday with a Bonus

I am running around like a crazy woman today.... tying up loose ends around the house because I am getting away this weekend. Yeah! I am joining other women from my church at a women's retreat up in the Big Bear, CA area. I can't wait! So I have been getting things in order, making lists, etc for hubby and the munchkins. I know they will do fine without me....


For Flashback Friday, I recreated a project recently published in Stampin' Success, a monthly magazine for SU! Demos. I wanted to change it up just a bit, so I broke out "Simply Delightful" an old Simply Scrappin Kit from a previous Sell-A-Bration. I love SU's Simply Scrappin Kits... they are great for getting several pages done, they make fabulous mini albums and other projects and the leftovers are perfect for cards. So on this project, I didn't stamp at all. This is simply cutting, scoring and putting it all together with the components of the kit.





The added bonus of the day is something I managed to make on Monday. Each Monday, I watch for Kristina's MACM (Make a Card Monday) video. This week, she taught us how to weave ribbon. I loved the look of it, so I created a patriotic card using the ribbon weaving and some 4th of July paper I had in my rather large stash. Enjoy!

I LOVE this card!! I have just begun my own blog-it's not all that high tech, but it's getting better :)
I really love your blog, you seem to have a friendly, bubbly personality and I can see this in your cards. Keep up the great work!
Happy crafting :)
