What I Did On My Day At The Crop...

I had a FULL day at the crop.  Here's some of what I did:

First up, I was inspired by both the Tone on Tone and the weaving technique featured in Prompt 4 of Shimelle's Something for Nothing class.  So I spent nearly two hours creating this beauty using ONLY scraps of both cardstock and patterned papers in the cream/beige family. The actual color of this is less yellow than it is showing up on my screen - much more cream/beige.  I have big plans for this background now, but you'll have to wait til I get it done!

created the cover for my "Fitness Journey" album.  I have a serious love for Thickers!  The album is a simple 4x6 one up from Target.

Then I created this page for my fitness journey album.  Also turned my list of 10 into a page.  Thought it was fitting.

decorated the cover of my Weekly Gratitude Album - more Thickers letters! Yum!  This is also a 4x6 one up, from WalMart. I think I paid $3 for it!

Inside cover of my Junque Journal. Using up old Thickers sets and scrap Patterned Paper.

An inside page from my Junque Journal.  Using scrap patterned paper and a bunch of brads and bling from my stash.  I will unashamedly admit that I totally stole the brad frame idea from Mel!
And a double page spread from the Junque Journal using pattern paper scrap circles with brads and bling.  If I keep this up, I may finally have an excuse to buy new brads!  I really adore all the great ideas we are getting from Shimelle's class.
I also did a lot of work on Framework Pages for my Library of Memories albums, but they are all in stages of completion and not quite ready for unveiling.

Babe, these are all *stunning!* Can't wait to see what that weaving is to be a background for, the covers are fab (I love Thickers too!! When I've used up some stash through Shimelle's class I am totally going shopping for Thickers!!) and - oh, I just I love it all :-)

Wow, you got a lot done, you lucky thing! That weaving looks like a beautiful patchwork quilt. I can't wait to see what you plan to do with it.

What great projects you did... aren't crops fun!?! I love your junque journal pages... gives me even more inspiration to develop my own further. I have a coffee mug of little "things" I want to add to the pages, but I like how you've added scrapbooking elements like the circles. Can't wait to see what the woven background will become... that was a lot of work!!
