March crop weekend

lucky for me (and my scrap goals) I started off the month of March with a 2 days crop. theoretically 24 hours of scrap actually about 18?? I got there late, I left early, I took happy hour and brunch breaks. you get the idea. but I had a great time with old friends and made some new ones too!!


made from a Scrapdango kit and based on one of their sample layouts. I'll add the teacher's name to the "notes" block......once I remember what it was.

and with the leftovers.....this lovely card!

with the same kit, I made this layout for the older boy, same year. I figured they would look nice next to each other.  this one started as a scraplift from a sample but ended up nothing like it.


and another card using the scraps and a sticker from the kit.

another kit from Scrapdango. has only taken me more than year to start using them, but it is nice to have the coordinated papers and embellishments!

and a super quick card with a border sticker and paper scraps.

a 5K I did with R on Valentine's Day. we didn't go as crazy as some people but did sport a little holiday spirit. I covered up some of the design on this patterned cardstock and trimmed the edge so I could mat it on the red to make it stand out more. I will journal in the spot underneath the heart.

ended up using a Heidi Swap ghost arrow and slicing it in half behind the heart. this card is a great example of creating a focal point on your card (just look at that huge heart highlighting the phrase!) that they taught us about in Operation Write Home's Focal Point Boot Camp.

and I saw this die cut on the sheet and couldn't resist another card. a quick but fun feeling card. I hope it is sent to someone special!

this page is from this month's Close to My Heart class. it started as a 2 pager but I didn't need both pages because I love these photos with these colors. these are the last photos of Nana with me and the boys. 

so of course I made a Mother's Day card with the extras from the page I didn't use!


the other CTMH kit which I also made into a one pager. poor Tessa is so old and grey! I never noticed it at the time but now it is so obvious.

and of course a card with the leftovers!

It looks like you had a fun and productive crop weekend! Nice work on your OWH Bootcamp Focal Point sample. The big, bold heart frames the sentiment beautifully and draws the eye right to it. Thanks for joining in on February's Bootcamp.
