Floral Journal & Birthday Card

This is another entry for my friend Kelli's paper crafting challenge. As you can tell I have been on a journal making spree. I have had a lot of birthdays lately (well, not me personally) ;o) and the journals make such a nice personal gift. I have a birthday lunch to go to today and this set is for the birthday girl. The colors on the card match so much better in real life. ;o)

Cupcake card & Journals

Here is my entry for my friend Kelli's paper crafting challenge. A card and two journals I made today. I painted the bindings and I had my box of acrylic paint out. Big Mistake!!! While I was in another room, Seth decided he would paint daddy's chair and the carpet with bright yellow paint. I am so glad we have a carpet cleaner. It took me an a hour, but the paint came up!
The cupcake card and "J" journal are for a sweet friend of Elissa's who is having a birthday next week. And the other journal is Elissa's. They match the one I made for me recently. The only difference is we used teal velvet ribbon on these.

A few cards

A sympathy card.

Here are a few cards that I have made in the last couple of months. I also made some fall cards today. You can see them on my blog.

Recipe Box and dividers

I have been wanting a new recipe file for awhile and when I saw this box at JoAnn's, I knew it was what I wanted. The box was originally silver and I painted it Heirloom White. I added the decoration on the front. "Recipes" was stamped to match my kitchen and I added the flower. I used my recipe stamp set to make some dividers. I really like it and I have been making some recipe cards to add to my collection.

Knitted Scarves

About 6 weeks ago we were in Phoenix and I got the chance to go to Hobby Lobby. (Yeah!) I fell in love with this yarn. It is a robin's egg blue with brown flecks, and it is super soft. I bought two skeins, because I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. One and a bit of the second skein made a nice wide scarf for me and the rest of the second scarf made a long, skinny scarf for Elissa.

My scarf.

Elissa's scarf.

In my quest to organize my craft room, I have been finishing unfinished projects. This scarf was knitted with homespun yarn on size 10 needles.

A couple of years ago, I knitted one of my sister-in-laws a scarf for Christmas. She loved it, but lost it. Awhile ago she told me and asked if I would knit her another one. This is the one I made to replace her lost one. It is also knitted on size 10 needles with a gray and black homespun yarn.
