Another week another UFO Challenge.  Can you believe we are 30 challenges into this year?  So, going with the traditional anniversary gift theme as an inspiration, I am offering extra entries for the July/August prize for any project with pearls.  My project is made with an Anna Griffin embossing folder (Matelasse), DCWV paper, white card stock, ribbon and a sentiment made with the Cricut.  The pearl embellishments are from Want2Scrap.
Want more details on how I made the sentiment?  Visit my blog post here for more info.  And don't worry if you don't have an imagine, you can use your Cricut Explore, and your home printer!

UFO Challenge 29 Anything Goes

This week I am continuing with my Finish Your Unfinished Objects Challenge.  It turns out there is no traditional 29th wedding anniversary gift.  So, this weeks challenge is open to any un finished object project.  To enter the challenge, just leave me a comment or post your project to the Facebook Group.  Work on any project and get two entries this week.  

My project this week is another page for my son's School scrapbook.  I just got Anna Griffin Border dies and was so excited to use them.  For the 6th I welded two shapes from Joys of the Season and CTMH Arbooking.  See below for a complete list of supplies.  I used some left over strips from Anna Griffin's Card Kits.  I love these strips and the card kits are so generous, I have plenty left over to add to other projects.

Also, I am behind on posting my prize for my July/August drawing.  If you have or will enter the UFO challenge this month (July) or next month (August), you are entered in the prize drawing for a Maggie Holmes Open Album/Mini Album Clip Board.  This prize drawing is open to US residents only, as I cannot afford shipping over seas.  To enter, comment below this post, or any post in July or August on your own Un Finished Object or post to my Facebook Group.

Anna Griffin Pop Up Card Kit (Border Strips)

Have You Found Scrap Our Stash Challenge Blog?


I am missing my favorite challenge blog and have been on the hunt for a new favorite.  I found a new challenge blog I love called Scrap Our Stash Challenge Blog.  First of all who doesn't need to scrap their stash?!  And the designers are so talented.  Add to that, I am currently working on my Quotes to live by scrapbook and their July Challenge inspired me to get a page done!
I have had a Dr. Seuss quote from this book on my list of quotes to scrap, so when I saw this month's challenge I had to give it a try.  I want my boys to know they can go far, and it's up to them!   Here is the Dr. Seuss quote I scrapped, "You have brains in your head.  You have feet in your shoes.  You can steer yourself any direction you choose.  You're on your own.  And YOU are the one who'll decide where you go..." Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You'll Go!  I used Microsoft word and inserted a text box for typing the quote.  The colors are inspired by Dr. Seuss.  Thanks SOSCB for helping me get another page done!

Supplies
Anna Griffin Planner
Anna Griffin Pop Up Card kit (rosette paper & Flower die)
Tim Holtz Rosette Die
Burlap doily
Buttons
Pink card stock
Purple card stock

UFO Challenge #28: Anything Goes Again

This week I am continuing with my Finish Your Unfinished Objects Challenge.  It turns out there is no traditional 28th wedding anniversary gift.  So, this weeks challenge is open to any un finished object project.  To enter the challenge, just leave me a comment or post your project to the Facebook Group.  Work on any project and get two entries this week.  
Lately, I am finding a bit of creative time to work on two UFO's.  I have always wanted to make a "Quotes to Live By"  scrapbook and I LOVE planners.  This year, I was able to find a planner by one of my favorite paper crafting brands:  Anna Griffin.  So, it occurred to me that I can scrap both at once and save the pages for my Quotes scrapbook!  This page says, "Don't get irritated, because it's 50% self pity!  Instead, give, thanks for everything."  I am a big Anna Griffin fan and cannot get over her card kits and how well they are priced!  I just shopped her HSN event and ordered the planner embellishments, some border dies, and another card kit!
The image is cut with Cricut Anna Griffin Lace Cards and Embellishments cartridge.  I stamped the Thanks for Everything with CTMH Artbooking stamp set.  All other
