scrapalicious sunday.

Well, today is scrapalicious sunday and I have some things to share!
Yesterday was National Scrapbooking Day and Studio Calico was hosting a ton of challenges. I decided to partake in the ones that I could and below you will find three projects that I did for NSD!

I used blue paint (random one that I found in an art bag that I have). Yellow foam Thickers. A flower cut from the Dear Lizzy "Flowering Fields" paper. Studio Calico wood veneer. Maya road stick pins. Cream Maya mist. "Tea" patterned paper from Studio Calico. The base cardstock is Best Occasions.

It was a lift challenge. I decided to lift the below layout for the challenge. I never shared this layout, but I'm sharing it now. :)

I used the "English" patterned paper from Studio Calico. A flower cut from the Dear Lizzy "Flowering Fields" paper. A Dear Lizzy rub-on. Studio Calico wood veneer. Maya Mist in Hydrangea. The base cardstock was Kraft by Bazzill.

The next challenge(s) were 5 products {brads, polka dots, mist, SC stamp, 4 patterned papers}, Use some mist, sketch challenge, Negative Town challenge, and white space challenge. Here's what I came up with...

I used Jenni Bowl banner stickers. "Sapphire" patterned paper (Sassafras), "Tea" (Studio Calico), "Sweet Strawberry" (Dear Lizzy), "Snip Snip" (Cosmo Cricket). Maya Road chipboard buttons. Mini Cherry Stamps (Studio Calico). High Noon Ready-Set-Chip Stickers (Cosmo Cricket). Wood Veneer (Studio Calico). Maya Mist in Hydrangea.

And last, but certainly not least, a Mother's Day card! Yippee! lol. The challenges were to use your favorite SC stamp on a card and to use blue, woodgrain, and a punch on a card. Here's my interpretation...

Flower cut from Dear Lizzy "Flowering Fields" paper (can you tell that I am slightly addicted to this paper?). Butterfly punched from "Sapphire" patterned paper. Wood veneer from Studio Calico. Blue cardstock is Best Occasions. The brad was a random one I found in my stash. I can't even remember what company made it...

Thanks so much for stopping by to look!

Have a wonderful Sunday! xoxo - Kasey


  1. Hi Kasey!! I found your message on my blog. It was so weird because the message you sent on SI never came up on my comment page and I couldn't read the whole message. I looked around the SC blog and couldn't find the exact contest only mention of it. I'm glad you sent me the thread on my blog! That is fine that you sent it on my blog. :) I signed up and left a comment saying you sent me. Thanks for thinking of me. Wow, wouldn't it be great to win that prize!!

    You have been so busy creating!! Your LO's are wonderful!! I LOVE that Dear Lizzy line!! I have a bit left still. I'm not too familiar with SC but I did pick up some "homefront" but have not used it yet. I should visit the blog again for some inspiration! Great job on the photo editing!! Your blog looks terrific!! :) Jen :)
