June Project 30 #17, 18 and 19 may be that I am not going to reach my goal of 30 before the end of the month...I got sidetracked purging my scrappy supplies and now I have only 1 day left...but you never know how much I can get done, right?

so today I'll share a card sent to a kind and amazing friend

a LO with miss mags and her last day of 4th grade...

and a birthday present wrapped with some super old cosmo diecuts...I did use scrappy supplies, so I'm counting it!

thanks for stopping by!

June Project 30 #16

or does each page get to be a project? no...I guess I'll stick with this as one project...a mini book to hold pics from art camp that mags will be attending next week...

here's the cover...used mainly the Narrative add on from my Studio Calico Story Hours kit, black paint splatters and lots and lots of stitching...

and the pages just waiting for pics...used my cameo to make the days of the weeks tabs.

I'll share the pages once they are finished...thanks for stopping by!

June Project 30 #13-15

I painted the cabinets in mags' bathroom and that meant clearing out the scrapping supplies that I have hoarding  storing under there.  That led to a massive purge and some listing of things for sale.  And I have been subbing for the science teacher too.  So my projects have taken a back seat for a few days, but I think I am still on track with reaching my target 30 by the end of the month.

Project #13 a father's day card for my dad...

I used up some scraps from a long ago Studio Calico kit...even the bird and circle were already cut! all I did was diecut the letters and stamp the sentiment...easy. peasy.

Project #14 a birthday card for a friend that got stuck in the mail today...hope it gets to her by Wednesday!

and Project Life Week 20...

That's all I have time to share...gotta get my gym bag packed for an early morning workout before work!

June Project 30 #7-12

The last couple of days I have been working on finishing up my December Daily...and yes, I do realize it is June! I only had days 21-25 left to do and to decorate the binder...and since I had out my Christmas stuff, I made some cards!  So here it is...

a birthday card...

a joy card...sorry about my finger, but it just doesn't look the same if the card isn't closed!

and a joyeux noel card...

and then pages 21-23 of my DD...

hoping I can finish it up this week and move on to something more summer appropriate!

June Project 30 #5 and 6

Yesterday I worked on my Project Life week 19...I have quit posting my PL pages because it is just too much work...but since I am documenting all my crafty projects this month, I will include whatever I get done...this one is a little interesting.

I used an 8.5x11 page protector with 5 3.5x5 pockets...I didn't have a whole lot of photos for the week and I really wanted to incorporate a letter from mags' here is the front of week 19

I used up a scrap strip of paper from my SC Daydream believer kit and another tiny piece was used up to make the stars...and I bought that cool BG stamp set at Tuesday Morning for $2.99!

and the back is the letter that I cut up to fit in the pockets...I backed it with gray cardstock because I didn't want the edges of the front page showing through.

and then for project #6...I cleaned off a tiny corner of my desk today and challenged myself to make something out of the things that were there...a birthday card!

I used most of the things exactly as they were found...the stitched rectangles, the doily, the lace trim and the happy birthday sentiment were all found as shown...I had to cut the corrugated paper to fit the front of the card and I punched the top layers of the butterflies and added the little pearls...crazy what you can find when you do a little cleaning!

Thanks for stopping by today!

It's been a little crazy at my house the first few days of summer...mags has been sick...really sick...I was in bed with her almost all day was scary.
But she is feeling better today which is a huge relief.
So I didn't get to post project 2 and 3 until today...oh,'s just for fun anyway.

Project 2...father's day card using my Studio Calico 35 mm kit

Project 3...hello card using the same kit

and a LO I did today about mags being sick using a little 35 mm and a little city of lights
